Read if you experience issues with screen flickering
Edit (15/10/2017) Newest pre-release image allows you to set display mode to fix flickering. Check ayufan's git

It seems that the newest batch (as of 04/08/2017) of Pinebooks shipped with an older Ubuntu image based on 3.10.105-bsp-1.2-ayufan-59 (you can check if your's is running this version by typing uname -a in terminal). 

Some Pinebook's experience screen flickering while running this kernel version, which is solved by upgrading to newest release version. 

To update your installation navitgate to /usr/local/sbin and run the following update scripts: 

sudo ./ 0.6.2
sudo ./ 0.6.2
sudo ./ 0.6.2

Run all three and then reboot.

For those feeling adventures and who want to try out pre-release images with additional features but also bugs and broken settings please see ayufan's git releases with instructions on how to update.
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter
