problem to install on orangepiplus2e emmc

Any help will be welcome...
I think i tried everything to install retrorange pi on orangepi plus 2e emmc with no succes.
The provided script don t work because the emmc device is not detected with standard 4.1 installation (mmcblk1 doesn t t appear in /dev). I can assume that is not a board failure because i ve no problem to install last armbian version with nand_to_sata...
So i tried a lot of things, from u-boot update to sunxi kernel recompilation or flashing directly from armbian, but nothing seems to work.
Has somebody succesfully done the trick ?

thanks for your help
can you try "sudo fdisk -l" from command line and post the output?
Disk /dev/mmcblk0: 14.9 GiB, 15931539456 bytes, 31116288 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x78bef114

Device         Boot   Start      End  Sectors  Size Id Type
/dev/mmcblk0p1         8192  1056767  1048576  512M  e W95 FAT16 (LBA)
/dev/mmcblk0p2      1056768 30805119 29748352 14.2G 83 Linux

As you see i only have partitions from extrernal mmc Sad
can you "transplant" a valid script.bin from a pure Armbian distro and replace ours on the boot partition? Maybe it will magically detect. IF you have a failed boot afterwards, copy/paste from boot/bin/orangepiplus2e.bin to script.bin to revert back
on armbian distro

script.bin -> bin/orangepiplus2e.bin


cksum bin/orangepiplus2e.bin

341417207 36808 bin/orangepiplus2e.bin

on retrorangepi
root@RetrOrangePi:/boot# cksum script.bin 

341417207 36808 script.bin

the files are already strictly identical, and of course copying the armbian one to retrorangepi didn t change anything
we have a plus2e user report that it works, so i'm failing to find whats wrong with your setup
what @saitoh00 is talking about whith  Retrorange pi 4.1 + 1.0  Hotfix . I searched everywhere about this fix but didn t found it. 
Could you explain me what it is ?
It's just the Update RetrOrangePi option from ES. From a fresh system, you just need to run it twice, we added extra commands to the update script
So , it has already been done, and is not my mistake Sad
Could you tell me what kernel source use and what config u used on it ?
latest armbian - legacy 3.4.113 kernel with FAT boot partition
alternatively, maybe you get luck flashing v3.0.1 then updating to v4.0
