You must remove the AT symbol from your post for it to display properly.  I expect that is being worked on, but there seems a minor bug in the forum software.

When I put the SD in my pbp and start it up, it boots into Manjaro. The SD shows up in Dolphin with BOOT_ALARM and ROOT_ALARM. I made another installation on another SD, same result.

The wrinkle I'm seeing is the file manager when I'm writing the SD card registers the card as mmcblk0 instead of sdX. I substituted the name in the instructions and followed them otherwise with apparent success. I'm using Gnome 40.4.0 on an Arch install.

Is the SD file naming scheme causing the boot loader to skip over it?

I used the images linked form this page https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/Pinebook_Pr..._Downloads
I normally burn my SD cards using dd, but there are other tools.
Mine have all worked except one, and that was due to an SD card that did not perform to U3 (or even U1) standard.

The github image I linked to is where the pinewiki directs you to. The instructions there use dd to copy the image, but also include a number of instructions about structuring the partitions on the SD card before the copy. The result doesn't seem to be visible to the pbp system while booting. Where would I look to find more on boot criteria for the pbp?

What's with all the (many) deleted posts in this thread? It's just bizarre.

Very weird. Not uncommon around the web these days, but why would anyone here be criticizing public health policy?

I was going to try a different OS and noticed that the install directions for PostmarketOS claim you need to physically disable the SPI and eMMC memory to allow the SD card to boot. This seems to have changed at some point, but the documentation I'm seeing doesn't clearly state when they are talking about what version. Any recollection of what versions have what boot schedule?

I was about to take off the back and start flipping switches, but the third try with a restart suddenly went to the SD card and it booted into ArchARM finally...

Answering my own question, the missing posts are a forum-wide problem. Using an at sign (anywhere in a post) triggers it, apparently.

Wow I haven't logged in in quite some time, but this is really excellent news! Thanks for sharing!
