I sat out to renovate the kid’s PineBook Pro (PBP) by bringing it to Manjaro’s KDE image (ours was still shipping with the initial debian derivative).
I grabbed the image, successfully
dded it to an appropriate microSD and managed to boot the PBP from it.
I installed the
manjaro-arm-flasher and proceeded to follow the menues … I choose
rock64 as the image to use and then did (what I believe to be) a crucial mistake:I was offered 3 storage devices to flash to. One had a numbered partition and the other didn’t. I concluded the one with te partition to be the internal eMMC and proceeded with flashing to the DEVICE rather than its numbered partition. All finished well, but now I’m left with an unbootable PBP.
Can some kind sould dissect this with me, find the crucial mistake and advise how to remedy it?
Thank you for your consideration. Balin
