Say you have a perfectly fine booting install on emmc
And then you make a mistake, put in something (SD card) for say a A64 (I have done this)
Opps,, it's dead......even with no SD card in, dead, dead, dead (no leds)
Well, you can (just a guess) take off back, press reset ,, OR
press power, at least 20 seconds,,(then regular 1s press to turn on),, IT'S ALIVE (in frankenstein voice)
FWIW (and BTW, I experiment, have had to do this perhaps 15 times by now)
Please note, bad uboot MUST be removed or disabled
Okay, I'll try this. I just have a question. My computer is not dead(no leds) if I only have the eMMC. The onlyl time it appears to be dead(no leds) is when I disable eMMC and insert an sd, thats when its dead. Would this pressing trick work if I have the eMMC disabled and just try with the sd??
Thanks for all the suggestions!

Thanks for your help though! I'll keep trying. As you say, I don't think I did anything to the SPI.
