External SDcard
#1
I have a lot of music on an SD card but when I reboot the phone with it inserted the Pinephone attempts to boot from it instead of the internal storage. What formats am I able to use with Mobian for external storage? Other than that my experience has been great, everything I use a phone for is working.

I've answered my own question, if anyone else needs to know Mobian does exfat support of of the box.

You need to overwrite the u-boot signature - see for example this para in the wiki.
  • ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Arch (5.13 kernel, Openbox desktop) for general purpose daily PC.
  • PinePhone BraveHeart now v1.2b 3/32Gb daily driver, dual boot via p-boot with Mobian/f2fs/Phosh on eMMC, Arch/ext4/Phosh on SDcard
  • PinePhone v1.2a 2G/16Gb that needs USB board replaced
