=== Boot order ===
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 | RK3399 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.

The '''Explorer Edition''' comes with a modified U-Boot pointing to the microSD card pre-installed to the eMMC. The microSD card can be (temporarily) booted instead of the pre-installed operating system, when the power key is shortly held at boot. To always boot from the microSD card it is recommended to wipe U-Boot from the eMMC. When the pre-installed bootloader was overwritten with a bootloader without such a configuration, the ''RE'' button underneath the back cover of the phone can also be used to temporarily bypass the eMMC. The button may however only be pressed shortly for a few seconds during boot, otherwise the eMMC won't be initialized in the operating system.
