write SD with UMS enabler and manjaro graphic bug in configuration
#1
Sad 
Hello, my quick setup:
-a rooted phone
-pop os linux
-windows 10 64
-a micro sd
-and this pinephone

-time to lost

I bought a PINEPHONE – with Convergence one week ago.

I first simply tryed to configure it on manjaro default system but there is a persistent manjaro graphic bug. I am blocked on landscape side (i am not sure of this translation) and i just have a half screen, i couldn't finish the setup. I forced reboot a lot, shaked it, but nothing happened.

I've then flashed OS on sdcard with my rooted phone and this app and etcher (and after rufus). The flash succed each time with arch(pinephone) and jumpdrive(pinephone) but whent I put the sd THE PHONE ALWAYS BOOT ON MANJARO.
So, I'm looking for a solution.

I have all read the pine wiki and the noob one but I found nothing about.

I am sorry, I just want do disserve my personal interest, sorry for my english and please be nasty I am a big noob.

Thanks for your reading.

OK - I think there are 2 options:
1) Your flashing of new images is flawed
2) The SDcard slot is broken.

Most likely option 1 is the problem, but to eliminate option 2, when you have an SDcard installed and the phone boots Manjaro, can you see anything on the SDcard? 1 way to do this would be to open a terminal and type sudo blkid as follows
Code:
$ sudo blkid
[sudo] password for csn:
/dev/mmcblk2p2: LABEL="rootfs" UUID="55b74abb-ba72-413d-96f5-bd70f0971abf" BLOCK_SIZE="4096" TYPE="f2fs" PARTUUID="96cc52eb-02"
/dev/mmcblk2p1: LABEL="boot" UUID="a75a51ff-5a32-4cd3-984b-f9de3616f341" BLOCK_SIZE="1024" TYPE="ext4" PARTUUID="96cc52eb-01"

/dev/zram0: LABEL="zram0" UUID="3ac6945c-bc2a-413e-b495-85f94caa5e8d" TYPE="swap"

If you see anything on /dev/mmcblk0 then that is the SDcard and it indicates the hardware is OK. If not, try again with any SDcard with photos or music or anything on it.

IF... you have Gnome 'Disks' App installed, you should see both the eMMC and your sd card when you open the App.

**(The eMMC appears as 'SD Card Reader')

From what I have read here so far, --- I "Think" you may have failed to properly flash your micro-sd card.

For me, > I have had excellent results using Balena Etcher to flash my sd cards for the Pinephone <
... (also for the Pinebook Pro.)

Thank you.
I don't see any usb or media on nautilus and on gnome disk. I will reflash tonight with dd.

Etcher may crash sometime when I flash any boot, then I prefer rufus.

That looks like a desktop to me, certainly not a PinePhone. (You have an NVMe and sda device but no eMMC which is what Manjaro should be booting from.)

I've reflash with etcher 2 times but nothing changed. I will now try an ubuntu live.

So, I have now 3 problems on my mind:
1.a graphic manjaro bug
2.my linux doesn't see the phone
3.the phone won't boot on sd

I thank you for any help Smile .

You need to open a terminal on the phone, and type the command on the phone.

you can try using an external keyboard plugged into the phone and use Ctrl+Alt+F# (1-6, I'm pretty sure F7 is reserved for the desktop instance)
