About the device:
Perhaps you’re in a line of work where security is a must, or a hard-core Linux enthusiast, or perhaps you’ve just got enough of Android and iOS and you’re ready for something else – the PinePhone may be the next Phone for you. Powered by the same Quad-Core ARM Cortex A53 64-Bit SOC used in our popular PINE A64 Single Board Computer, the PinePhone runs mainline Linux as well as anything else you’ll get it to run.

The purpose of the PinePhone isn’t only to deliver a functioning Linux phone to end-users, but also to actively create a market for such a device, as well as to support existing and well established Linux-on-Phone projects. All major Linux Phone-oriented projects, as well as other FOSS OS’, are represented on the PinePhone and developers work together on our platform to bring support this this community driven device.


Pinephones Beta Edition are still on stock. Visit the Pine64 Store

How to install:

Download the image/xz file from the download location. Verify that the download completed successfully.

After that, install Etcher (sudo pacman -S etcher if on Manjaro) and burn the to an SD card (8 GB or larger).

The PinePhone should recognize the SD card as a bootable device and boot from it.

Thanks for the great job!

As you may know, from time to time, SIM (and mobile data) gets disconnected but I cannot see the patern to reproduce the behaviour. Maybe it is related to automatic suspend. It was happening already in 25 and previous.

Anyway, is there a way to make and link a keyring password to the automatic (re)activation of the SIM without switching off the password of the SIM? Would it “solve” the problem?

Thanks again

Hi, I you have upgrade modem firmware ? @MCG
Best Regards

Hi, for me have somme issue but the big one is the BT i cannot listen sound correctly all the time the sound is stopping 1sec approx.

Best Regards

Model : Sony WF-1000XM4

Edit : Have fix a the issue on use PW and remove PA
pacman -S pipewire-pulse pipewire-alsa pipewire-zeroconf gst-plugin-pipewire
Also now have access on LDAC & AAC Profile ^^
But i need to see manually on settings my ouput for use my BT but now that work.
And if i shutdown BT that switch automatically on internal speak.

With PW issue is disconnect all the time :
Part of log : hastebin

A workaround is try to set : = {
  ["bluez5.enable-sbc-xq"] = true,
  ["bluez5.enable-msbc"] = true,
  ["bluez5.codecs"] = "[sbc sbc_xq]",

in /etc/wireplumber/bluetooth.lua.d/51-bluez-config.lua
Have create folder & file
Also have install : pacman -S realtime-privileges

No, I hadn’t, thank you.
I updated* it two days ago and now I use the EG25GGBR07A08M2G_30.006.30.006
but sadly I apparently have the same behaviour.
Not a big deal, it happens just ~ 1 or 2 times a day.

i had same issue on both original and community firmware, but latest versions of community firmware has fixed it.
