How to flash it, via sd connector? Where is os image?

There is all my work, it takes 1 day to bring back all environments :((( Is this the only reason? Is system can crash just like that?
I want to clarify system reliability and stability.

You can connect your SD or eMMC to your Linux PC to backup your working directory first.

Sudden power-off might cause the OS corruption.

Please read the User Manual first for flash the OS into your eMMC.

2) If I am trying to flash eMMC it just automatically unmounts. I have 2 eMMC modules and 2 adapters and tried on 2 different computers (Windows 7 on PC and Windows 10 Virtual Machine on MacBook) but same errors - immediate unmount while writing (when I press "Write" button)

Windows can see only 128MB. It is very normal because Windows can't detect EXT4 file system.

Your card reader might not be compatible with the eMMC.

Or try to connect your card reader to USB 2.0 host.

Finally, I solved this problem.

I bought 8(!) card readers. And only one managed to flash eMMC. Unfortunately I lost all data, but I have backups, it took some time to restore all system configurations, but it works now.
And one more thing worked only on Linux, Windows still unmounts device.

Some USB host ports on PC also have the power supply issue.
So it is worth to try other USB 2.0 port or an external powered hub.

Anyway, good to hear you solve the problem.
