Hardware eMMC reader capable of reading HAC-EMMC raw partitions including boot0, boot1 with rtsx Linux driver.
eMMC chips wear out, and recovery can be tricky.
Luckily, the console has a removable eMMC board.
It is encrypted, but still readable and writable as raw partitions.
When the eMMC fails it often becomes read-only or worse - corrupt.
I have recovered a couple broken consoles this way, it might help you too!
Almost any SD card reader can read eMMC chips. However they only access the main partitions.
After discovering a Realtek card reader with rtsx Linux driver in an old laptop,
I could read the boot0 and boot1 partitions too.
It is fully open-source reader based on Realtek RTS5170 card reader and designed in KiCad.
Uses the same Molex 500913-0302 connector.
Requires Linux and rtsx drivers to be installed.
Works out of the box with Ubuntu 20.04.1
How to build the required drivers for Raspberry Pi 4 is here.
Read and write speed is about 20MB/s. (USB 2.0)
sudo dd if=/dev/mmcblk0boot0 of=boot0.bin
sudo dd if=/dev/mmcblk0boot1 of=boot1.bin
sudo dd if=/dev/mmcblk0 of=rawnand.bin
echo 0 > /sys/block/mmcblk0/force_ro
echo 0 > /sys/block/mmcblk0boot0/force_ro
echo 0 > /sys/block/mmcblk0boot1/force_ro
It does not decrypt your files or enable piracy of any kind.
It is created to make recovery possible.
In full support of the right to repair movement.
