Pinebook pro nearly unusable after using manjaro-arm-installer
#1
Good afternoon everyone, about a month ago I tried using the manjaro-arm-installer script to flash the emmc. This completely bricked my device, no booting from emmc or sd card, not even the green LED power light would come on. Finally got around to opening the thing up and hitting the RESET button. This got booting from the sd card working again, but the performance is absolute garbage. I can get to the manjaro KDE desktop but it will freeze if I try to do anything useful. I'm at my wit's end with this thing, any guidance you can offer would be greatly appreciated, Thank You!

I find KDE to be heavy on an SD card (arguably, on the eMMc as well), so I prefer Xfce, gnome, i3 or sway, any of these are much better in my experience.

As for not being able to run manjaro from the eMMc, only the SD, installing bsp uboot could do the trick, I have to use it with Manjaro and Arch otherwise it won't boot.
