On the PinePhone Pro the eMMC (the internal storage of the phone) has a higher boot priority than the microSD card (see [[RK3399 boot sequence#Boot sequence details]] for details regarding the boot sequence). That behavior is in contrast to the original PinePhone with the Allwinner A64 SoC, where the microSD card has a higher boot priority.

Due to the above explained [[PinePhone Pro#Boot order|boot order]] of the PinePhone Pro, the eMMC has a higher boot priority than the microSD card and the user has to consider this behavior. This means that you cannot boot from a SD card with an OS present on the device's eMMC.

That said, booting from SD can be achieved using a modified u-boot (or a different bootloader) on eMMC, which seeks out a bootable partition on SD first. At the time of writing, this hasn’t been achieved yet but is a planned feature.
