Next step: Getting PIN93 (BOOT_SEL1) to GND, this should trigger SD Card booting. Unfortunately, this pin doesn’t seem to be easily accessible. It’s not connected on the board at all, just put to VCC (leads to NAND boot) by the CPUs internal pullup, so it will need to be soldered directly to the cpu pin. Any other ideas are welcome
