I actually have that on my emmc, for reasons, but that is NOT what I recommended to you
I said "rescue SD",, on 8-16G SD, not necessarily highest quality SD,,, do update it (mrfixit_update.sh,when booted from SD)
Then, it is very easy to put that uboot on emmc
In short, using dd,, save emmc mbr,, maybe save 1st 16M,, dd 1st 16m SD->emmc,, restore mbr
This takes literally 5 minutes (or less), also, an OK rescue SD, and good for 32 bit arm apps
The uboot (trust) is good for sleep BTW, it is a bsp uboot, the distro, not at all
Oh, I realized that i didn't say, yes that is the right image
Do you need me to explain the dd commands to you?

I can run dd, that's my preferred method for "burning" disk images.

Can you explain the difference from the boot image on the mrfixit disk image and the uboot-pinebookpro-bsp I installed earlier? How can it fix the garbled screen after soft reboot issue and the bsp image cannot? As far as linux experience, I'm fairly intermediate and I haven't had to deal with booting issues yet. I run Manjaro KDE and Arch on my x86 based desktop and laptop and booting has always just "worked". Would you happen to know if the Manjaro folks plan to create a boot image that fixes the soft reboot issue? Maybe I should report this issue on the Manjaro forum as well?

Thanks for all your help btw!
