Manjaro ARM flasher for KDE 20.12


I am trying to install Manjaro KDE 20.12 on my Pinebook Pro using the Manjaro ARM flasher tool.

I’m not succeeding because of an error message:

“It appears there was some problem in flashing the image to your device. Please check the logs or try again later.”

I only have a choice of target between “mmcblk2boot0”
or “mmcblk2boot1”. I was expecting to be able to choose “mmcblk2”.

Can anyone please make a suggestion?


Please write
on your terminal and show us the output.

Here you are:

~]$ lsblk
mmcblk2 179:0 0 58.2G 0 disk
├─mmcblk2p1 179:1 0 213.6M 0 part /boot
└─mmcblk2p2 179:2 0 58G 0 part /
mmcblk2boot0 179:32 0 4M 1 disk
mmcblk2boot1 179:64 0 4M 1 disk
zram0 252:0 0 5.6G 0 disk [SWAP]

Ok. That’s the normal output from pbp, but you need a medium like a microSD were you flash the image on.

You can’t flash a new OS to emmc while your system is running from emmc.
First flash a medium. Then start pbp from this medium. And after than use manjaro arm-flasher a second time to write to emmc.

You cannot flash an image to a drive that’s already running.

The Manjaro ARM Flasher tool will therefore only show drives with no mounted partitions, so you don’t blow up an already running system.

Of course.
I’m being stupid.
Will try again.
