Can't add micro SD card to Pinephone
#1
Hello Friends,

I can't add a micro SD card to my pine phone. I've had my pine phone for 2 years and I've just flashed Manjaro Phosh on it and it all works well. Except that I cannot add the SD card to give music via Lollipop. I've tried using both Windows and Ubuntu computers to format the disc, but when I put it in the pine phone it doesn't boot. What am I doing wrong, please?

Chris

You think it's an issue because you flashed Manjaro Phosh to the emmc?  
I had problems getting a microSD card recognized when I got the Pine Phone and Manjoro was the pre installed O.S. I thought/think the microSD card reader is broken. I'm still not sure the device will recognize a microSD card, but I haven't tried lately.

I have Manjaro Phosh flashed to the eMMC. It reads the microSD fine and will play MP3 files through Lollipop so maybe it is worth re-downloading Manjaro Phosh and reflashing it?

(I use Ubuntu and Raspberry Pi Imager to flash my PP, only because it is convenient, and just works.)

Hello Friends,

I flashed Manjaro to the eemc. I don't think that I want to re-flash Manjaro because of the contacts. I have inputted them manually, and can't save them anywhere. I'll live with it!

That's one of the major problems that I've hit. Having to re-enter contacts each time is a pain, same for calendar alerts. There's probably some clever way of doing this but it's beyond me.

If Manjaro is using Evolution contacts as Mobian Phosh does they are stored in:

~/.local/share/evolution/addressbook/system/contacts.db

...so all you would need to do is back up and restore that file. (That's for contacts, not sure about calendar items, I don't use the calendar.)

This is my setup. It also works well with Contacts and Calendars. I have all mine local and the families are still on Google.
