[split] Change password from external media
(06-19-2020, 04:31 PM)tophneal Wrote: I’m on mobile so it’s hard to link but you can download Manjaro images from their site. We also have a wiki page dedicated to OS imgs for the PBP. Most have also been linked in the Linux on PBP sub forum.

Your Ubuntu machine should only be needed to download and write a bootable image to your SD.

Otherwise you need to remove the emmc, Mount it in Ubuntu with the USB to emmc adapter, then install the necessary dependencies to chroot into the aarch64 OS on your emmc.

Pick your favorite search engine and search for pinebook pro wiki (or look in the Linux on PBP forum), find and download a live OS image, and when you boot into it you won’t need to do anything other than mount, chroot in, and change the password.
Thank you.  I'll try this later this afternoon.
