Pinebook Pro doesn't boot most of the time unless connected via USB-serial!
Thank you very much for the info @wdt!

I found out that there exists an alternative manjaro uboot package named uboot-pinebookpro-bsp which packages mrfixits version of uboot, so I followed your suggestion and installed it.

sudo pacman -S uboot-pinebookpro-bsp

I then followed the instructions to dd the 3 files to the eMMC and now everything works! Even rebooting is problem free now.

So @poVoq , if you're running manjaro, maybe switching to this uboot version could be the solution for you too.

One last question, what are the mmcblk2boot0 and mmcblk2boot1 devices for?
