I didn't test eMMC for this latest build for 1080p with legacy kernel 3.10.y and which is a bit pointless to invest into. Others were tested many times and install is super easy. It is possible that eMMC which is in your Pinebook is not supported in the kernel. It is rare but possible.

Isn't Legacy using the same BSP kernel as the shipped KDE Neon?

You are right though. I don't see the eMMC listed with fdisk -l
Although that appears to be the issue, I don't see why that would make the whole installation section of armbian-config go missing.

I kind of wanted to dump the legacy Ambian onto the eMMC to replace KDE Neon which is useless to me, and continue to run Armbian mainline from MicroSD. This is solely because the legacy release supports BT and appears to support suspend. Besides that it's a pain because it doesn't support the newer version of ext4.

I confirm, the eMMC drive is not recognized by the legacy kernel. For the moment I'll still use the mainline on the eMMC and the legacy on the SD card.
