Pinebook Pro doesn't boot most of the time unless connected via USB-serial!
>Why does reboot fail even though normal booting from SD works?
With that PARTICULAR distro, on SD (what is it BTW), since its using its uboot
try a different one (the 1st uboot to "get the baton" is the one, all others ignored)
To blank uboot, bs=1M count=16 is enough (do note: this also blanks mbr)
manjaro does have an alternate bsp uboot
maybe serial cable alters timing slightly??
I thought it was a bit random?
I still think mrfixits uboot is the best, updated of course
