I don’t know what I’m doing wrong or whether my Pinebook Pro has a fault but I seem to keep ending up in the same place, after doing a clean install of Manjaro ARM 20.08. The previous process was as follows:
- Insert a microSD card containing a Debian instance.
- Boot the Pinebook Pro using the microSD card.
- Zero out the eMMC using
- Flash Manjaro ARM to the eMMC via
- Power off the Pinebook Pro.
- Remove the microSD card.
- Boot into Manjaro ARM.
sudo pacman -Syyu.
- Resolve the
lsblkto identify where Manjaro ARM is installed & update
ubootby running the two
ddcommands. In my case, I swapped the

- Install some software from AUR via

- Change SDDM login screen theme to breeze, desktop icon theme to papirus-dark, and change the lock screen and desktop wallpapers.
- Use konqi as my user avatar, and add a user email in KDE’s system settings.
- Switch scrolling direction to natural for both X and Y axis on the trackpad, and activate X-axis two-finger scrolling, in system settings.
- Power off Pinebook Pro at some point.
- Pinebook Pro no longer boots. Gets stuck with the red power LED glowing and a faint hissing sound. I’ve noticed that I’ve had a USB-C power cable in when this has happened this time, but can’t remember if that’s been the case every time.
My output of
LABEL Manjaro ARM KERNEL /Image FDT /dtbs/rockchip/rk3399-pinebook-pro.dtb APPEND initrd=/initramfs-linux.img console=tty1 console=ttyS2,1500000 root=LABEL=ROOT_MNJRO rw rootwait bootsplash.bootfile=bootsplash-themes/manjaro/bootsplash
Please could someone help me? What am I doing wrong? I can still insert my Debian microSD install and boot from that.
