Pinebook Pro won´t boot either from eMMC or microSD
Hey guys,

After using my PBP happily for months now it doesn't boot anymore =(

Yesterday I  installed latest updates (Manjaro KDE) via package manager - afterwards it felt a little sluggish so I decided to shut it down in the evening (to reboot the next day).

When I press the power button, the power LED is orange for a few seconds an then turns green - but the screen stays off. I noticed that I can press caps lock and num lock (fn+f10) and it toggles the appropriate LEDs.

I also tried booting from SD card (also Manjaro KDE) and at first it prompted me for system set up info (user name, pw, root pw, locale, tz etc) but then was just showing the Manjaro logo and a spinner for at least half an hour.

Any help much appreciated!

EDIT: not sure if this is booting from SD card right now or not but I'm getting EXT4-fs errors regarding "Detected aborted Journal" - did I shutdown the PBP to soon after booting from SD card?
