I should have been more clear about that I meant the board booting Uboot directly from /boot on the SSD. I am interested in an autonomous installation. So that I can connect the SSD (with Arch Linux ARM or Android) to any RockPro64.

Yeah, the onboard SPI NOR + uboot would be the nearest thing to a BIOS/UEFI equivalent on ARM. If the processor doens't support it directly for booting, it can't be booted directly. However, once you're in uboot... you're only limited to what it can do Wink

True. Uboot is pretty capable.
Thanks for explaining.
