Installing Mobian --> "Resizing file system" forever

However, when I do that, the "resizing file system during initial boot" screen is there for quite a long time (30 minutes maybe) and afterwards the screen turns black (not pitch black though, the display remains switched on) and that's it.

I have used two different 64 GB cards  (a new Sandisk Extreme and and old Sandisk Ultra). I used BalenaEtcher and I tried
Code:
sudo zcat mobian-pinephone-phosh-20210314.img.gz | sudo dd of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=1M

What am I doing wrong? Huh

If you are using Balena Etcher :
      You do not SUDO  anything.

You simply download Mobian,  then use Balena Etcher to flash your sd card.

<(You Can prep your sd card,   IF   you so desire,  format or zero wipe or whatever)>

I have been using Balena Etcher and Mobian since the first release of Mobian.  

   * (actually that's all I have ever used,  -  since I purchased my first Pinebook Pro, from the first public sales,  second batch I think, Sept. 2019)
