So I decided to give Marjaro Arm another shot on my old Android Box.
From a previous thread of mine:
I learned to use this command to build the latest Testing version:
sudo buildarmimg -d gtking-pro -e kde-plasma -v 2023.09.30 -b testing n
I updated the date (I tried using today’s date and the date of the latest Testing release) and ran this command for both KDE and XFCE.
It seemed to work just fine as it created the compressed files.
I extracted the files and used Etcher to write them to their own SD cards.
Previously I would then be able to mount the SD card and select the correct dtb to use.
However, now I no longer see any of the files that I need to view and modify.
When I insert the SD card and mount it, it appears twice (it did this previously as well). When I select the SD card, one of the instances (where I would view and modify the files) is blank. The other instance appears as before, a listing of a typical Manjaro install (I did not search through this in any detail).
I tried booting the SD cards, just to try but of course it did not work.
One thing I noticed was the image files that were extracted were a lot smaller than the previous image files (1.8Gb vs 5+Gb).
By the way, I also went back and downloaded the VIM2 Manjaro version and followed the same method and was able to select the correct dtb and modify the file. I know from my previous experience that this VIM2 file won’t work but I wanted to see if the method I was using was correct or if I missed something.
If someone could kindly help and point me down the correct path, I would greatly appreciate it.
