Last update bricked my pine phone :(

the last time I installed updates (from the Terminal), my pine phone froze after a couple of minutes.
I waited a really long time, was using wifi and connected to power.
I finally made a hard reset (pressed the power button for 20-some seconds), started it again and got -- nothing. Just a black screen and the LED constantly on in green.

I have arch installed on the eMMC.

So, I made a full backup months ago. My bad, I know.

I still would like to know if/how I can access my data that is (hopefully) still on the phone.
Can I access some kind of boot manager during startup?
Could I make a backup of the broken phone and get my data from that backup?
Could I roll-back to some kind of restore point (this would be ideal)?

Any help is appreciated!
