Did you realize that SD card and eMMC uses both exactly the same signaling

Well certainly the SD/MMC controllers are not all the same.  Certainly the
AM572x has 4 MMC controllers, only one of them can drive eMMC, one can
do SDIO, one is only 4 bit so best for uSD, and I forget the limits on
the last one.  They have different widths and maximum speeds.  So yes
they are all MMC, but they are not all the same.

Ok, you win on that. I still doubt that there exist a processor with a on chip ROM that first look for a bootloader on a eMMC only interface. This would be a major failure.

Yet again, stupid chips or boards, are not an argument to not support eMMC u-boot on safe processor and boards like the Orange Pi Plus.

Would be possible for the Debian installer to check the board model by reading /sys/firmware/devicetree/base/model and check if it found "Xunlong Orange Pi Plus" into it ? Then it could warn the user and ask if it want to write u-boot on the target device.
