Have UBports Edition - Need Help to Move to Mobian
#1
Need some assistance or a pointer in the right direction...

I have the UBports Edition and I have a desire to move to Mobian on my phone.  Can someone point me in the right direction on how to remove the UBports Touch O/S, install the latest release of Mobian and also obtain the latest firmware for my Pine64 UBports Edition hardware? 

Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide!

You can copy anything you want to an SD card and boot from the SD card. Speed will be slower. It's really only good for testing before you write to the phone eMMC. There are numerous ways to install though.

There are boot instructions here: https://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/PinePh...ng_Systems

You can write it to SD with a number of methods. Balena Etcher is a good tool that runs on Linux or WIndows. 

Once you are sure that you want to put on the eMMC, you could simply download the raw image again to the phone itself while it's running (as you would any other computer). See these instructions:

https://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/PinePh...o_the_eMMC

E.g.  dd if=mobian-pinephone-phosh-20210314.img of=/dev/mmcblkX bs=1M status=progress

You might need to gunzip the image first.
