Btw, camera isn't working here... Did you do anything special?

I'll give it a try.

Absolutely nothing. I was just going through the settings on first boot and then saw the option to take a profile picture, tried it out and it worked.

You're right, taking a profile picture does work. The camera app however does not, at least here on my device

i'll verify on mine too. Didn't test it hard, just stumbled into that. Still a great step in the right direction!

Do it! To bring you up to speed, CrOS/PBP development is on hold until Chromium is using (at least) kernel 5.7, since that's when the PBP support started entering mainline.

Kernel 5.7 is released, in fact, I think 5.8 is already available. Normally using the kernel-next packages, you should be able to start use that already.
Personally, I would like to try to get the build from a standard CrOS checkout, since the Ayufan build setup compiles it for 32-bit ARM and not for AArch. I managed to get this to build, but the resulting image couldn't boot due to some filesystem corruption, however, I never figured out what exactly the cause was for that. fschk passed, it just would not boot.

Good to know, I thought kernel-next often had a delay in availability.

Did ayufan's build script use kernel-next?

It has been a while since I have had a look at it, but if I remember correctly, ayufan used the Rockchip 4.14 kernel (or is it 4.4?)
You might be correct that kernel-next is delayed, but if you look in the available kernels, there is an option for a mainline kernel.
I will have a look at it today and report back Smile

Just got an update in Manjaro this morning, that linux-pinebookpro-5.7 is gone, and replaced with linux-5.8. If Chromium is keeping kernel-next up with mainline, this could be it!
