transfer to ssd
I am sure I have seen the procedure to transfer an existing image on a sd card to a bootable ssd connected to USB 3 but cannot find the detail. Can you help please. What format should I use on the ssd. The image I wish to transfer is ubuntu 18.04 LXDE. I am using this to run opencpn navigation sofware with ais overlay and it runs well.
I do not have a Rock64 so cannot be 100% sure, but would imagine it is the same as a RockPro64. In which case you have to keep the SDcard as the boot device, but can move everything else to the SSD.
Instructions to achieve that are in the RockPro64 wiki here.

I note there are instructions in Ayufan github here to achieve what you actually asked - seems you can use USB as the boot device!
  • ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Started Bionic minimal - now "groovy", Openbox desktop for general purpose daily PC.
  • PinePhone BraveHeart now v1.2b 3/32Gb daily driver, dual boot via p-boot with Mobian/f2fs/Phosh on eMMC, Arch/f2fs/Phosh on SDcard
  • PinePhone v1.2a 2G/16Gb that needs USB board replaced
