OK - found a "WIP" version here that has the spi-installer.img for the PPP and that works great for me.

EDIT: And Tow-Boot has single handedly fixed suspend and wake from suspend on PinePhone Pro. This feels like Christmas, no more dead battery after a couple of hours.

Yeah-but (if you ever saw Little Britain ...) after resume on a (Pine64) RK3399, at the moment the sound is a mess! Another WIP without any patch that I know of yet Smile 

Seems the way Tow-boot make resume work is that it is on the SPI - so far the necessary condition to cause resume fail was having the "in-use" bootloader on the eMMC. Hypothetically it would be interesting to test SPI blank, Tow-boot and OS on eMMC. Probably would fail to resume as, at heart, Tow-boot is just a U-boot wrapper.
  • ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Arch (6.2 kernel, Openbox desktop) for general purpose daily PC.
  • PinePhone Pro Explorer Edition, daily driver, rk2aw & U-boot on SPI, Arch/SXMO & Arch/phosh on eMMC
  • PinePhone BraveHeart now v1.2b 3/32Gb, Tow-boot with Arch/SXMO on eMMC
