Do you have access to the serial console of your device? For my board I connected a UART adapter like this (wires soldered to the debug pins - I added a fan as well since the box runs rather hot for me ;)):

If you have access to the serial console, it should be possible to configure u-boot so that it boots directly from SD card.

Ok Patrick, thanks for the information. I will investigate if it's possible to apply the multi-boot procedure that is used on S802 boxes.
Also I will try to build a image based on previous version of volumio.

Great job, thank you!
