I am proud to announce Manjaro ARM Preview1 for the RockPro64.
The ROCKPro64 is the most powerful single board computer on offer from PINE64, featuring a Rockchip RK3399 hexa-core SOC as well as a quad-core Mali-T860MP4 and up-to 4GB of dual-channel LPDDR4 system memory. Moreover, the board comes packed with features, including an USB 3.0 and USB type C with DP1.2 port, a full PCIe x4 as well as eMMC module socket. You also get a 40pin header with I2C, SPI, UARTs and GPIOs. The board is backwards compatible with many of the existing PINE64 peripherals, including the Wifi/BT module, camera module and LCD panel but an array of new peripherals specific for the board is also available. All this in the exact same model “A” dimension as the original PINE A64.
How to install:
Download the image/zip file from the download location. Verify that the download completed successfully.
After that, install Etcher (
sudo pacman -S etcher if on Manjaro) and burn it to an SD or eMMC card (8 GB or larger).
Put the SD card into the Pinebooks SD card slot or the eMMC on the main board, if you used eMMC, and boot it up. The RockPro64 should recognize the SD/eMMC card as a bootable device and boot from it.
On the first boot, it will display an OEM type install. After you have made your choices it will reboot into your newly setup system.
