UPDATED: 13-distro multi-boot image for Pinephone (incl. 3GiB variant)
#31
I could not download by torrent because the firewall blocked it.
Now a friend did the download for me and I flashed a card with it and booted it in my phone.
Here my disillusioning experience:
ArchLinux: Prompts for login without keyboard, then crashed.
Lune OS: Requesting pwd for WiFi without keyboard, hanging there forever.
Maeom Leste: No phone calls possible.
KDE Neon: Crashing or hanging when booting.
PureOS: Prompts for login without keyboard, then crashed.
Sailfish OS: Hangs forever with boot screen.
pmOS: sxmo login: Unable to continue.
Ubuntu Touch: modem power AT command ERROR during boot.
Too sarcastic for highly strung moderators Confused

Somewhat similar to what I experienced, except.

For me Arch never loaded, period.

I was able to get ubuntu-touch to load and function, after a reboot of the phone.

All other did load and was able to get logged onto my WiFi

Here's the updated image that also supports Braveheart: https://xnux.eu/p-boot-demo/

I manged to fix UT's first boot crashing. If the file userdata/.writable_image is not present, some boot script just tries to reboot the phone and crashes the boot process. Pretty random.

Lune OS sometimes fails this way, but usually works fine.

Arch Linux is just a base installation with no GUI, you can access it over serial port.

sxmo login is mo/1111.

Ubuntu Touch: do you run this on braveheart?

If you have random crashes and hangs, it may be because you may have either a corrupted image or SD card is misbehaving, or the filesystem got full for whatever reason. There's just 500MiB of free space on the original image. Without resizing the partition to be larger, if you run update on any of the distros (or if it has autoupdate), you'll fill the fs, and things start crashing for all distros.

md5 of the previous uncompressed image release is: 0ee480064088c457787a19037baa6582

It's always possible to verify the SD card got written properly by: dd if=/dev/sdcarddevice bs=1M count=7500 | md5sum (only immediately after flashing, and before use/mounting - if your OS has auto-mounting, it may break this verification method too)

Thank you so much. Smile My 10Mbit upload is barely able to cope. Smile

I'm downloading now as well (https://xnux.eu/p-boot-demo/p-boot-demo.torrent) and will seed as long as the image is current (at 100 Mbit/s).

Note: "2" is maybe not the best name for the containing folder, and filename multi.img.gz isn't very descriptive either... Please add "pinephone" and a version number and/or date on coming releases. Smile

Great, thanks!

From https://xnux.eu/p-boot-demo/:
Quote:sxmo login/password is mu/1111

Is this a typo? I thought the username is mo.
