1st boot
#1
I'm hoping some kind soul can help. My Pinebook pro arrived yesterday and booted into the installed Manjaro. After updating it requested a re-start, closed down and has not booted since. Pressing the power button brings up the green power button - but nothing happens.
Any help much appreciated

I have the same problem and have been trying to load a new system from my SD (pinebookpro-debian-desktop-mrfixit191226.img) version that does boot fine.

I have tried to dd the image to both mmcblk0 and mmcblk1 without luck.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I can confirm the issue

Unpacked my Pinebook Pro, was able to boot it up, connected to wi-fi, applied all software updates via stock packet manager GUI, then was offered a reboot and can't get it working since.

Armbian is more stable indeed, but after several days of experimenting I still have 3 major issues
1) loud popping sound when sound interface is initialized / put to sleep state
2) high-pitch hissing background noise due to PWM of PBP display
3) BT is not working at all ((

I saw some workarounds / dirty hacks for the first two (keep sound interface busy / constantly play some .mp3 with 0 volume in the background and keep brightness at 100%) but still can't manage to get Bluetooth adapter to work under Armbian. Any guides / suggestions?
