Manjaro system update failed, bricked PinePhone
#1
Hi,

I received my PinePhone today with manjaro preinstalled.
I wanted to update the os, the system update was stuck for ~1hour in searching update.
So i opened the terminal and run
Code:
sudo pacman -Syuu

The update got stuck at an error about perl and default local. I couldn't do nothing, the phone did not respond so after 1 hour I removed the battery.

Now, when I start it the red led lights is showing up, but on the screen... nothing.
I bought an SDXC ScanDisk extreme 64GB, put ubuntu touch on it..and nothing. No red led light, nothing on screen.
I used the Pine64 installer to create the bootable SD card.
The image I downloaded from here: https://ci.ubports.com/job/rootfs/job/rootfs-pinephone/ .

What should I try to make it work? 

Thank you.

You can't brick the PinePhone. Fully charge the phone and just use the instructions from the Wiki to write to SD: https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/PinePhone_I...structions using the current Ubports repo over at https://ci.ubports.com/job/rootfs/job/ro...stemimage/ as the repo you have been using is outdated (it says so at the top of the page).
