I have a problem when booting my Rock Pi 4B v1.3.
It was running the official Debian Desktop image, released somewhere in 2020. However, I’m not sure which one.
The OS is located on an eMMC card (32GB).
When I look at the files on the eMMC, everything seems to be there.
The only thing I did before it stopped working was upgrade my apt packages. It asked me if I wanted to update the boot on my eMMC and I thought “sure why not”. Which may not have been the best idea.
I have ruled out all hardware issues because:
- I can still read the eMMC when booting from a different OS on the SD card so I know that the RockPi, eMMC port and eMMC card are not dead.
- When I try to boot from the eMMC without SD card plugged in, it just stops doing anything. The red and green LED are both constantly on (they don’t blink). The screen doesn’t show anything. The debug console on ttyS4 doesn’t show anything either.
- When the SD card is plugged in, it just skips the eMMC completely.
So I have the following questions:
- How did this happen? Could this have occurred when upgrading my packages and updating the boot?
- What can I do to fix this? I’d rather not do a complete reinstall to not lose any progress I made.
Thanks in advance.
