i was lucky last week. My device is up and running.
Fortunately the eMMC data structure was O.K. In the end my device refused to boot, because of that broken connection to the RAM.
So there'd been no need to fiddle around with eMMC for now.
Maybe i'll do some investigation at a later point.
Feel free to set up your device for peripheral boot and try the Ti Flash tool debugging possibilities.
Right now i decided to re-assemble the device and use it for a while.
I must assume that i know nothing about the internal structure of the firmware. So it would be essential to get some insights
I got some additional information about the eMMC/microSD data lines.
If there's some interest i might post further pics.
To get some background about the chips on the A101 mainboard, i collected some datasheets of the main components.
Grab the zip-file here
Most of them are easy to find other's are not
Anyway, saves your time i guess.
BTW, is there any tool to unpack gen8 AOS files?
