[pinebookpro] failed boot after installing mainline uboot

I did:

  1. replaced uboot-pinebookpro-bsp from the aur with uboot-pinebookpro package
  2. ran:
sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mmcblkX bs=1024 count=32 conv=notrunc,fsync

sudo dd if=/boot/idbloader.img of=/dev/mmcblkX seek=64 conv=notrunc,fsync

 sudo if=/boot/u-boot.itb of=/dev/mmcblkX seek=16384 conv=notrunc,fsync
  1. rebooted

Because boot failed and i choose to install towboot on the spi. That worked, but emmc still dosn’t boot.
Maybe i need to change something in extlinux.conf?

This one likely messed up your partition table…

Seems plausible, i was wondering why lsblk shows no partitions on mmcblk2 anymore.
Do you know how i can fix it?

I’m not sure you can fix it. You might be able to (try searching online for suggestions for this), you might not.

Running dd commands always have risks, especially if you don’t know what they do.

Where was running these commands suggested to you?
(maybe we need to update some documentation somewhere)

Big facepalm :man_facepalming::
The last two lines where recommendet from pacman after installing uboot-pinebookpro
The first comes from #46878.
Now i saw he wrote it was a wrong command…

I reinstalled
