Can you remove eMMC from custom Beagle Bone Black PCB without software problems.

I am making a custom PCB based around the BBB, and I am making sure it will still run properly with the eMMC flash removed. I am also removing the HDMI framer, but I have read that the it can be removed. P.S. how can I compile a Linux distribution for my specific hardware.

So you’ve basically designed a beaglebone green with emmc disabled.

So easy, Just copy the green epprom values, and the kernel will ignore the missing emmc on init.
