I have had this on the Plasma Mobile unstable branch for a while, I flashed Manjaro-ARM-plasma-mobile-dev-pinephone-20220304 to get the latest version, went through the setup, which completed, but then the screen goes black with a flashing _ cursor on the top left (Pinephone 1.2 running from eMMC).
I forced a restart after waiting for over half an hour, it boots to the lockscreen with the top status bar showing mobile with carrier name, bluetooth icon and wifi,battery status too.
Entering pin to unlock the phone you get to the homescreen with Phone, Spacebar and Angelfish icons at the bottom with ^ icon that expands to show applications. However, the top status bar is missing (no icons for mobile, wifi, bluetooth).
Swiping down from the top of the screen only shows a Search bar together with the virtual keyboard at the bottom. Swiping from the top again moves the search bar down but above it remains blank, no quick settings menu drop-down as was the case before.
Another problem is that whatever application is launched there is no way to closed it, no icons to move back to open applications or homescreen. The only way to get back to the homescreen is to kill the application using the PID via SSH.
Am I missing something? Is this a known regression that will be fixed at a later stage?
Very disconcerting, I had assumed this had slipped in somewhere and that doing updates via command line hadn’t changed a configuration file but as I just reflashed from a latest image that is clearly not the case.

Resetting shell settings does not work for me, even after rebooting.
Downgrading from plasma-workspace 5.24.2.r11452.g8fcdfc309-1 => 5.24.2-1.0 and rebooting worked for me:
sudo pacman -S extra/plasma-workspace
