Kernel Update from 4.4 (Ayufan) on Ubuntu 20.04

Right I am booting from eMMC so that doesn't sound promising. What's the reason for it still needing to be a custom (ayufan) kernel rather than mainline?

Not sure the differences: for sure Armbian comes with a 5.8 kernel that I suspect is pretty mainline (and for sure does not support eMMC). Similarly Manjaro.

Methinks Ayufan has some PCIe bits that help the RockPro64 but I have no skills to decipher his GitHub - indeed I have minimal skills to understand Git at all! (In my day source code control was a diagonal line down the deck of punch cards!)

The other thing that used to be dodgy on mainline kernels was supporting sound (e.g. via HDMI) on the RockPro64 - I think this was solved a while ago.

But what puzzles me is how to benefit from PineBook Pro kernels/work to get a 5.x kernel that supports eMMC!
  • ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Arch (5.18 kernel, Openbox desktop) for general purpose daily PC.
  • PinePhone Pro Explorer Edition daily driver, Tow-boot on SPI, Arch/phosh on eMMC
  • PinePhone BraveHeart now v1.2b 3/32Gb, Tow-boot with Arch/Phosh on eMMC
