Formatting Armbian without rebooting

I have a Opi+2 board which has an Armbian system installed in its emmc. Now I want to format its Emmc and reinstall Armbian but the problem is I don't have a proper SD card. So I need to do it without an SD card.

I have a running system on it, so I can reach the working system. Is there a way of formating it while its running? For example  a command does the same thing with "dd if=armbian.img of="/dev/mmcblk1"" (which won't work while there is a system working, its just an example)


(mmcblk1 = working system, emmc)
