Flash to eMMC?
#1
Is it possible to flash an image to eMMC without having to remove the module? Does Tow-Boot have any functionality that would help here?

No problem - just do it from an SDcard. You need to disable the eMMC during initial boot phase if it has something bootable on it as per the wiki.
  • ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Arch (5.18 kernel, Openbox desktop) for general purpose daily PC.
  • PinePhone Pro Explorer Edition daily driver, Tow-boot on SPI, Arch/phosh on eMMC
  • PinePhone BraveHeart now v1.2b 3/32Gb, Tow-boot with Arch/Phosh on eMMC

So, I would need a bootable OS on the SD in order to DD to eMMC.

I'm using this case and I would need to extract the board from it in order to press that button anyway, so I guess removing the eMMC is the more straightforward approach.
