Pinephone won't boot from SD card
Pinephone won't boot from the SD card.
I put in Tow Boot formatted SD card and turned it on.
The flashlight turns on and the phone doesn't turn on.

I flashed the Tow Boot image with Etcher and also with dd.

I just got this phone yesterday so I'm not sure if this is a hardware problem and I should contact Pine64 support.

I am downloading a PostmarketOS bootable image to try that out.

Any suggestions? Anyone experienced this?

Update for anyone else experiencing this problem:

- my phone, PP, can boot from SD card with the postmarketOS so it isn't a hardware problem
