Very cool. Will give it a spin today. Ayufan fixed those things in ubuntu, perhaps join the IRC for a chat and take a look in his git Smile

Edit: the download link goes to a x86 iso.

Download link above should open a folder with multiple downloads, just pick the "q4os-pinebook-1801.zip" file, or follow direct link https://sourceforge.net/projects/q4os/fi...p/download

Awesome! I'll definitely give this a spin once my new SD cards come in. I wanted to test out Q4OS on my regular Pine64 SoC's, but my current monitor has display issues.

Yeah, Ayufan has been an absolute mad scientist these past few days. +1 to joining the IRC!
Some with certainty insist no certainty exists.

Hello.
I tried Q4OS.
If you run pine64_update_uboot.sh and restart it will not start.
The power LED blinks.

That script learned to detect the Pinebook in https://github.com/longsleep/build-pine6...49d6dd85ab - if you run an older version on a Pinebook, the Booloader for the Pine64 will be written and the Pinebook will not boot.

Hi q4osteam, Thanks for your pinebook image, I am able to boot it up on my Pinebook 14".

I notice that you put this image under testing, is it still under testing? or we can release it for general public usage?

Hi, this image is quite stable and usable in general, but should be still considered as testing. It needs some more tuning to support PB hardware, especially power management and audio device. We want to release new Q4OS 1802 PB version asap.

If you need to add a yes/no confirmation prompt before flashing to the eMMC, you can edit the /home/ubuntu/.bashrc script.
