Cannot boot from SD cards any longer.
Do you have the serial cable for the device? If so can you get the console output when you try booting into Jumpdrive? I've been having a similar problem where the boot process would hang before getting to the Linux init.rd. So far the only image I have found that will boot from an SD card is the latest beta for Manjaro with Plasma Mobile. I suspect that there is some boot firmware that is not configuring the power management IC correctly (the AXP803). On occasion the image flashed to the eMMC will hang trying to probe this part.

Having the console output during the boot would be helpful in diagnosing the problem. If you are able capture it while trying to boot several different images, the outputs can be compared to try and isolate the problem.
