You can probably skip the reboot part - think you can use systemctl to stop phosh and get to the login manager. I'm no expert though, it's just trial, error and a lot of internet searches.
All told it took me about 90 minutes with lightdm and xfce on both mobian and arch. 60 minutes for the first one, 30 for the second. The immediate issue I have is my cursor flickers an awful lot. Turning Display compositing off in window tweaks stops the flickering but causes display issues. Still searching for a fix.

Do not stop phosh, lol. that will stop you, phosh is it's own display manager. systemctl enable lightdm and then reboot. There is a button at the top that lets you choose a phosh or xfce session. Choosing phosh will lead you to the phosh login screen. Logging in again will launch you into phosh. with light dm running in the background. Not optimal when in phone mode. I think phosh should offer the same session type choice functionality. I find it best to disable lightdm when finished in desktop mode and enable it just before you reboot and attach the dock to start working as if a desktop..

Thank you very much for the lightdm config entry

Still testing the Nov 10 late evening apt update version. 100% of the time the screen lights up from deep sleep on an incoming call. Unfortunately gnome-calls does not always seem to pick. Almost there.......

Thank you to those still pounding away at the hardware, your progress is extremely impressive!

YMMV
