  2. Insert SD card, attach USB keyboard + monitor or a serial console and boot into Khadas Rescue Tool
  3. Choose: Advanced -> eMMC -> Fast erase and Advanced -> Erase SPI Flash (Yes). Go back and select "power off"

To be able to boot Armbian SD card image and install Armbian to eMMC, use one of the methods to boot into upgrade mode. If you have most recent board revision (1.4 ->) then you only need to quickly press the function key (middle) 3 times in 2 seconds. Release and boot will proceed from SD card. Then use nand-sata-install utility to flash to eMMC.
