Sorry, but it also does not work for me.

I followed the "instructions" and ended up with the dietpi/raspberry pi boot screen saying

SD card not detected
Failed to open device: 'sdcard'

And I was wondering how the Raspi should "know" that it now has to boot from the attached USB/SSD instead of the formerly used sd-card.

My setup:

Raspberry Pi 4
bootloader: a5e1b95f Apr 16 2020
boot: mode 6 order 0x00000001 rsts 0x00001000

Try to do this :

sudo nano /etc/default/rpi-eeprom-update
change to beta like :

Exit and save
sudo rpi-eeprom-update
