Default Re: Tools / technique for boards with eMMC repair?

Far from being a dead recovery.
The eMMC not only holds the firmware, among other things, but also the boot CPU code.
Without the boot CPU code the CPU won’t even boot. Therefore it cannot perform a crisis recovery.

And, btw, writing the firmware contents into the eMMC won’t work either!

If the eMMC is dead then the easiest solution is to get your hands on a full working eMMC dump.
Load it and program the new eMMC (full dumb clone).
