Need Advice for Wiping eMMC on Dead LCD Pinebook Pro

Thanks very much for your help, carlosqueso!

I don't have a USB-C to HDMI adapter. All I have is my Pinephone convergence dock, which has that functionality but it is only claimed to work with the Pinephone. It might be a low risk, hardware-wise, to just try it.

Otherwise, I'll try Armbian, because I've been trying to hack system files to enable SSH on my pmOS SD card using another Linux system but no luck so far. I wonder if the Pinebook Pro pmOS is close enough to Pinephone that I could somehow chroot into it on my Pinephone to enable SSH. All I should need is a terminal in single user mode.
