Disappointing.
#5
I'm back, but I'm gonna un-eat some of that crow.

Yeah, forcing the ejector unstuck solved 'some' of my issues, but most still remain.

1) No matter what distribution I use, it works intermittently at best. Even with the 'flagship' Manjaro ARM, I'm able to install it then the first set of pacman updates reliably causes it to show a green light but not go any farther. This is the emmc, so I'm not blaming a poor SDcard for this. I tried the emmc installer and also dd'ing directly to the emmc. First boot? Fine. Updates? Black screen on reboot. This is true of both KDE and the XFCE variant.

2) I tried running from the SD card. Four of them. Different brands, different sizes. Half the time when I go to restart after the first boot, I get "unrecovered journal" errors and the system locks up or I get vague "authentication error" when I try to login.

I get that this device is supposed to be a hacker's device, but seriously. It MUST be defective at this point.
