Dark screen on boot up (?) on new Pinebook Pro with Manjaro
#7
I tried typing blind, going ctl-alt-f2 to the TTY, login in, and then manually setting the brightness through /sys/class/backlight/edp-backlight/brightness.

no idea if I typed it all in correctly, but I typed it multiple times, and to no avail. I am really disappointed. At this point I am wondering whether to ask for a new eMMC module to put in, or some way any way to let me boot off the SD cared. Until I can use this laptop again, I have to strongly advise my friends not to buy it.
