Not yet supported now. But in theory, There are two ways to meet the need:

1. Make a sdfuse image just like Samsung's: boot from SD card and copy all the
files to emmc flash, and then boot from emmc flash.

2. Using fastboot function of u-boot to directly flash images to emmc flash.

I haven't tried any of them, but samsung has shown above technology.

I suppose we will support this feature in next release.
