I guess it is no longer the latest version Smile

Thanks you your help. I still have no screen output on my old 14 inch Pinebook. Until this is sorted out, I am running kde-neon, https://files.kde.org/neon/images/pinebo...m64.img.gz

Armbian is probably the fastest and it should work on all variants: https://www.armbian.com/pinebook-a64/ It has LTS kernel with most if not all functions ported from more recent kernels.

I had no luck either with the Manjaro-ARM-i3-pinebook-20.04 images, SD or emmc. Just got a black screen when it started loading the kernel.

Armbian has worked for me and is very fast. I had trouble with the ubuntu armbian variants. Armbian_20.02.1_Pinebook-a64_buster_current_5.4.20_desktop is what i'm currently running and works well.

Although.... the screen has the same flicker as the initial 1080p ayufan build before the "pinebook_lcd_mode=1080p" option was added. I might start a separate thread about this.

Today, I managed to install Manjaro (Manjaro-ARM-i3-pinebook-20.06.img) on my old Pinebook (1366x768)! Very nice. The trick that was missing before was setting the resolution in a config file before booting. For details, see https://forum.manjaro.org/t/black-screen.../136269/14
