Can I reinsert emmc into a running odroid?

Unread post by ickam » Wed Feb 12, 2020 6:54 am

Hi,
I have a C2 that is currently running Android. I want to install Linux on it but I lost my emmc to SD adapter. I was wondering if I would be able to remove the emmc, boot Linux off microSD, then backup the Linux onto a Nas and reinsert the emmc while Linux is running off microSD and then flash the backup image onto emmc?
So in short, is it safe to put the emmc into a running board? Or am I risking shocking myself?

Hotplug might damage the eMMC chipset. We don't recommend it.
