    Which image do you use? So if you have the same image on your USB stick and the SD-Card than it boots? This sounds like your SD-Card is corrupted. Did you check your card with h2testw or F3? How is your board powered (PSU& cable)? Whats connected to your OPI?

    Maybe you have a card reader issue?
    Did you write the image with Etcher? Unless Etcher writes the image without reporting any issues I'm not sure anyone will be able to help you further - you should try a different card reader and different SD cards first and write images only with Etcher.

    It does not boot from USB... I think it boots from SD-Card (uboot) failed to start up the kernel from the SD-Card and therefore looks for other possibilities (e.g. USB, ETH) to start a kernel. Cause he has a working kernel on the USB stick, this works without issues.
     In fact, you didn't cause:
    Otherwise, this statement would come earlier:
    So, something goes wrong when you write to SD-Cards. There are IMO two opportunities:
    All your SD-Cards are counterfeit Your card reader/writer is counterfeit (as @zador.blood.stained suggested).  I suggest solving this issue step by step, with burning an image as an end goal.  Replace your SD-Card reader, format all your SD-Cards and test them again with F3 or h2testw In case you don't get any errors with h2testw/F3 you can burn armbian with Etcher and enjoy armbian.   In case you still have the same issues there are two possibilities: You're the the unlucky guy having two bad SD-Card readers or three counterfeit SD-Cards (or maybe a host computer which fails when it writes stuff on flash media ) I'm (and a lot of others too) aren't fans of using chargers as PSU.  It works (mostly/often) but it can end in 'unexpected behavior' which end's in questions like --> why does armbian not work reliably.
    I'm not a fan of hubs. Only when they are active (self-powered, not through the SBCs USB). In your case: you have an SBC with a nice barrel plug connector.  So, why not buying a barrel plug PSU. I bought my OPi PC+ with xunlongs barrel plug PSU and it works without issues.

    I didnt know that the Orange Pi One can boot from USB
    But at the Boot-log I did read "scanning bus 0 for devices - 4 USB device(s) found
    Could you try to boot from MicroSD-Card when only connect a Keyboard/Mouse (NOT a USB-Hub or any other storage device)?
    (Did you "eject" the MicroSD-Cards via File-Explorer or did you only disconnect the card?)
    If you are using Windows you could try to write the image with USB-IT (does work fine for me - like etcher 1.2.1):
    Did you format your MicroSD-Card using SD-Formater v5  (page url says v4 but its V5) before writing the image?:
    Click accept at the bottom of the page for downloadinf the v5
