How long does it take to boot from SD card?
#1
Hi everyone! Just got my PPP today and have been tinkering with it. I've been having massive problems just trying to get the default experience to function in any capacity (currently, when I boot the phone, I enter my passcode and then I just get an unresponsive white screen)

 So I figured I'd try flashing a different OS to the SD card and booting from that. So I flashed archlinux- archlinux-pinephone-pro-phosh-20220222.img

 How long is it supposed to take? I booted the phone, it vibrated for a few seconds, went through a terminal-looking loading screen, and now I've been stuck at some kind of loading screen (A phone with a penguin on it with a swirling loading circle) for about 20 minutes now. Did I do something wrong or is this normal? [url=https://github.com/dreemurrs-embedded/Pine64-Arch/releases/download/20220222/archlinux-pinephone-pro-phosh-20220222.img.xz][/url]

Issue solved!

Solution: I wasn't using a fast enough microSD card. I switched to a SanDisk Extreme 128gb micro SDXC I and it boots to SD card just fine now. The card that didn't work was a micro SDHC
