Be sure to get the right one for your device (Pinephone, Pinephone Pro, etc). Hope this helps.

I added all my notes to setup a PinePhone with Arch.
Think of this as a guide and most of the commands will need to be changed depending on your setup.

Additionally there is a nice script allowing you to streamline installing Arch + encryption onto SDCARD.

Works nicely on emmc as well.

Start up jumpdrive on your Pinephone, and find the easy to use script here: https://github.com/dreemurrs-embedded/ar...staller.sh

If you decide to use f2fs over ext4 (shown in some cases to improve speed on flash memory), you will want to first install: squashfs-tools && f2fs-tools

Hey @MikeMan

From release notes from @Danct12

NOTE: Plasma images in this release are shipped with broken virtual keyboard, this has now fixed on upstream but you'll need a physical keyboard plugged in or some other way to run the update.

Cool. Thanks very much for the info.
I'll load the current image as I like Arch with Plasma quite a lot.
Cheers
