SD card / Sim slot dilemma
#1
Hi everybody.
I have a problem with my pinephone manjaro ce. Recently I decided to flash the internal emmc through the sd card (jumpstart option).
I was surprised to find out that the phone doesn't recognize the sd card (checked via lsblk command), but a phone sim is detected correctly.
Has my phone a hardware fault ? Do I have to config some software option alternatively ? I'm stuck....

Thank you in advance

P.S.
Sorry for my awful english

Maybe depending on the file system of the SD card?
I recommend FAT for cross OS transfers, simply because it's guaranteed to work (but files can't be over 4 GB each).
NTFS might work too, but chances are that Manjaro ARM doesn't come with support out of the box.
I tried EXT3 12 years ago, but I constantly had to deal use "sudo" to write make any changes to the USB drive if I remember correctly.

Hi there - it is unlikely you have a hardware fault but anything is possible. It is not clear from your report how you are detecting things that work:
 - what is the phone configuration when you run lsblk - where do you run lsblk from? Try sudo blkid as well.
 - you say the sim is detected - again what is the phone config when this happens?

Most likely you just need JumpDrive version 0.6?
  • ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Started Bionic minimal - now "groovy", Openbox desktop for general purpose daily PC.
  • PinePhone BraveHeart now v1.2b 3/32Gb daily driver, dual boot via p-boot with Mobian/f2fs/Phosh on eMMC, Arch/f2fs/Phosh on SDcard
  • PinePhone v1.2a 2G/16Gb that needs USB board replaced

The phone is running Mobian OS, but the original distribution was Postmarket OS. In the beginning I flashed the phone without any kind of problem, particularly through Jumpdrive. After a certain number of flashing attempts the sd card has not been recognized again.
The sim card has always been recognized by the phone. Recently I tried again to insert my sim and I got the expected effect: the phone has been connected to the gsm network.
The pinephone was configured enabling the mobile data option in the config section.
I don't know how to proceed in order to flash my pinephone again....
