Ubuntu updater fail, partical win, fail again
#1
1) I think the first time I flashed the card withOUT using the PinePhone Etcher. That one didn't work. It just gives me flashing red LED with a click and no update is running.
2) Then, I think I used the PinePhone PINE A64 (512MB) and flashed the SD card. I flashed to the card, put the card in and plugged it in to charge. I hit the power button and it started up and I saw the UB robot on the screen saying it was updating. I ran for about 20 minutes and then went black. When I tried to power back up an hour later, I had all three colors of LED flashing and clicking but it wouldn't start.
3) I decided to start over since it sounds like that's what everyone does here. I reformatted that same card but wonder if I used a different type (exfat, etc.) So I loaded to the card and tried PINE A64 (1GB/2GB). I put the card into the phone and I only get the red flashing light.
Please help this dumbass. I am wondering if I should try to load a different OS to see if it's the Pine installer, the SD card, the SD card format type, or MEEEEEEE!!
Help.
