Trouble booting later versions of Manjaro on PinePhone v1.2


Intended reader understands governments illegally disrespect rights of its own citizens by illegal means. No exceptions. What’s mentioned is to be taken at face value.

I’m enrolled with the Address Confidentiality Program sponsored by secretary of my residing state. The program exists to help survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, trafficking, stalking, and assault. I don’t think it’s appropriate for anyone to seize or search any documents or communications I’ve sent without a search warrant. Authorities trafficking a citizen is misconduct punishable by law. I don’t think it’s appropriate for human traffickers or anyone with criminal intent to be involved with any communication of mine. Some human traffickers amuse in effort to dismiss charges against them.

Human traffickers are expected to throw away my life making it meaningless while disrespecting me in every way.

I don’t think it’s appropriate for human traffickers or anyone with criminal intent to be involved with any communication of mine.

I don’t think it’s appropriate for anyone to seize or search any documents or communications I’ve sent without a search warrant.

Human traffickers intercept communications of mine making it their business to obstruct my human rights, control, isolate, and deny justice.

I expect ALL human trafficking suspects that may be police, army, or defense contractor personnel reported to:

I don’t expect a 911 call to be a significant report that solves the problem.

Military and defense contractor personnel abuse their clearance to participate in human trafficking. State department is responsible for military and defense contractor clearance. Not properly reporting assumes being an accessory to human trafficking crime.

Authorities or people impersonating authorities that don’t show creditable action protecting my human rights from exploitation are human trafficking suspects. Expect people impersonating authorities to be previous authorities caught with trafficking charges.

Human traffickers prey on gullible people.

Human trafficking is human trafficking. Nothing makes it okay.

Not including this disclaimer with all my communications allows human traffickers to easily throw my life away.

Human traffickers make demands for their own selfish purpose without respect to ALL of my human rights till my death.

Human traffickers don’t allow my body to execute what’s expected to escape their control.
Human traffickers don’t want their electronic devices removed or jammed.

Human traffickers continue to control, restrain, and isolate me with or without assistance of electronic devices.


Higher Commissioner for Human Rights states:

Human rights need to be figured every step as it shows the root causes of human trafficking.

Typical root causes:
• Impunity is maintained for traffickers
• Complicity of public sector
• Unjust distribution of power
• Justice is denied to victims
• Patterns of discrimination
• Demands derived from exploitation

A link between human rights and human trafficking is clear. Human rights approach places victim at the center of any creditable action.

Human rights approach acknowledges governments are responsible for protecting and promoting rights of all people within their jurisdiction and have a legal obligation to eliminate trafficking related to exploitation.

Different human rights are relevant at different points in the trafficking cycle. Some are especially relevant to the causes of trafficking.

Violations of basic human rights are prohibited under international human rights laws. Certain human rights concern the response to trafficking such as right to access justice, right to effective remedies, and right to a fair trial.

Human rights are integrated into government and business human resource policies. All human rights are equally important.

It’s difficult for a human to stay alive without human rights. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the result of what happened in the holocaust. It’s the International Bill of Human Rights or inalienable rights applied on a permanent basis at global and regional levels. It’s been enforced since 1948.

I’m still not treated fairly before the law after criminals destroyed my life in 2004.

End of Disclaimer

I am having trouble booting later versions of Manjaro. I suspect something is corrupted in the startup process. Newer versions won’t boot from sdcard or eMMC weeks after I received my PinePhone.

The first version of Manjaro available for pinephone will boot.

I visited the following links. I’d like advice from Manjaro before taking action.

I have included system information for my newly purchased PinePhone 64 received from Pine Store November 2023. I’m open to providing more diagnostic information to get the problem corrected as easily as possible.

If the installation of the prioritized boot medium is corrupted or incorrect, the PinePhone will not boot anymore. The following problems are common:
-An image without bootloader was flashed.

U-Boot may need to be added to newer Manjaro images allowing newer Manjaro images to boot?

To solve the flasher issue and flash my build image I use I use the Etcher for Linux x64 (64-bit) (AppImage)

It is a nice tool to flash images on the emmc modules or sd cards and so on, really efficient and practice to clone an OS disc.
