Broken sd card slot



I brake the SD Card slot on my brand new PI4 :(:cry::sob:

I will order a eMMC Module

but meanwhile:

With rufus i writhed the debian image to an usb stick but the pi4 ist not booting with it.

is this possible to run it from an usbstick?



As for now it’s not possible to run all from usb stick. Boot partition still needs to be on emmc or sdcard. To boot from usb… Maybe you need to use maskrom mode, but i don’t experience with it, so can’t help much


please note that u-boot aren’t allowed to boot from usb-disk because of the maskrom’s limition, only kernel and rootfs can load from usb-disk.

looks like it is not possible, so I will wait for the emmc
