Change the root device on a BananaPi R1

Go to solution Solved by Werner,

I have "ARMBIAN Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster) 4.6.5-sunxi" running on a BananPi R1 router.
I used to have it set up such that while it booted off the SD card, it had its root FS on an SSD. Some time ago, I had to re-install as an upgrade went fatally wrong and now I cannot remember the exact steps to switch from the SD card to the SSD as the root FS.

I changed the root= in /boot/boot.cmd and generated the /boot/boot-scr and also changed the /etc/fstab entry but

findmnt -n -o SOURCE /

still shows "/dev/mmcblk0p1". Can anyone tell me the steps to take in switching to a new root FS?

Thanks and ... stay healthy!

Did you try to simply use the nand-sata-install script to move rootfs to ssd?
