Mobian screen won't wake reliably.
#1
Ok so when I go to wake the screen, about 1/5 of the time, nothing happens.  Just a black screen.  If I ignore it and leave it, the problem goes away and it will wake up just find later on. (Call it 10 min or more)

I've tried the last two nightly builds of Mobian.  Both are running into this issue for me.  One is on the SD card, the other flashed to eMMC.

Any suggestions?

I can't seem to get a usable download of the old stable Mobian version from mid March.  I just get the loooonnngg resizing message and permablack screen when I try that.  (3 separate downloads on 2 devices now)

Manjaro woke fine for me, but I wasn't a fan.

I get the same thing Big Grin Big Grin .

My workaround is to unlock it via ssh (or with the serial adapter)

Code:
ssh mobian wtype 123456 -s 250 -k Return

(Needs wtype installed on the phone)

Or I just wait the 10 minutes or so like you said. Big Grin Big Grin 

Cheers!

Hey, thanks for the workaround!  Much appreciated.  Question, are you on the March "stable" build or one of the more recent ones?

Yep I'm on the Alpha 5, stable branch (on emmc), Kernel 5.11.

Probably not much help, I am on unstable but have stuck with 5.10 kernel. Broadly dont have your problem ever except once or twice say but think that was when I had Arch booted.

p.s. also may have had it when I tried encrypted fs?

  • 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

I installed mobian-pinephone-phosh-20210427.img and have been running daily updates/upgrades.

I experience the long pause on unlock pretty regularly.

It is pretty consistent when I am playing a podcast. I will be listening, a commercial break will come up, and I will want to wake up the screen to use the fastforward button. I would say the slow unlock happens about 30% of the time.
