    It worked, I have my eMMC system back!
     
    Here are all the steps in case someone else has the problem and wants to repair his eMMC image...
     
    1. download a previous Helios64 image from here...
    https://wiki.kobol.io/download/
    2. install the image on a microSD e.g. for Windows and macOS there is Etcher...
    https://www.balena.io/etcher/
    3a. boot your Helios64 with the microSD and Jumper 10, see here...
    https://wiki.kobol.io/helios64/troubleshoot/#how-to-force-boot-from-microsd
    3b. Alternative: from the serial console press a key on the keyboard while u-boot start. You will get the u-boot prompt.
    From this prompt write and press enter. Helios64 will boot from SD... (thx @prahal)
    run bootcmd_mmc1  
    4. if you are logged in as root user (normal users must put a sudo in front of the commands) execute the following commands...
    root@helios64:~# mkdir -p /mnt/system root@helios64:~# mount /dev/mmcblk2p1 /mnt/system root@helios64:~# cd /mnt/system/
    5. The contents of the /mnt/system directory should now be filled with the contents of your eMMC....

    10. after a reboot you should now boot from the eMMC again...

    retrack got a reaction from gprovost in Very noisy fans   
    Then yes the default fancontrol was super conservative. I have been running your suggestion a few days and I am now graphing temperature of SOC and disks to get better insights.

    retrack reacted to gprovost in Very noisy fans   
    Looking into the fancontrol configuration, I think we were way too conservative on the settings making the fan going too early in higher RPM.
    Plus we are not taking into consideration that the heatsink is already doing a pretty good job in passive mode.
     
    I would recommend the following fancontrol settings until we provide a way to control the fan based on HDD temp instead :
