Works just perfect to boot a newly flashed image... but after updating installed apps in google play I just get the 4 dots animated - forever (i.e. > 5 min)
But never the less - thanks for all efforts - looking good when it runs  Smile
Thanx

Don't update sudo su binary - will break the installation. You need to reflash as there is not going back I am afraid :/

I'm not sure it actually works, so I guess I will uninstall it. Too easy a way to wreck the install.

I'd be interested to see exactly why it breaks Android.

it doesn't get happy
it doesn't get sad
it just runs programs

It does work so I suggest you dont uninstall it. In the google store settings prevent it from updating and youre all set.

I assume you are asking about the A7.1 image ? Yes, but not out-of-the-box. Get any eMMC installer (for instance ubuntu) and flash it to a SD card. Then mount the SD card and in rootfs substitute Pinebook.img for the android image (also, rename it Pinebook.img - not sure if necessary). Then just use this modified installer to get A7.1 onto your eMMC.

I guess when it locked up my terminal programs before that was probably post-update, then. Will take another look.

Yes, I mean A7.1, thanks for the explanation. Maybe it would be nice to have simpler version, because it is not usable from SD and this guide is a little tricky.

Yay!!!
Flashed and it's up and running - great!!!
I read the final column by @waltmossberg The PC redefined
So I use my pinebook as a daily driver 

Thanx for all hard work all!!!

as far as supersu goes if you grab a new su binary from somewhere on the net and replace the current one with the new on while the system is not running you should be able to take care of the out of date binary message. the issue with updating while the system is up is a factor of chainfire having a different file placement structure than the author of the build does as well as supersu now does some rather complex "systemless" setups and i'm pretty sure chainfire does not include "pine64"/"pinebook"/"sopine" in any of his install scripts and using "generic" in the case of the pine64 boards won't do the job since that mostly refers to generic nexus type devices. although he is a great person and if he was approached for some help and given some hardware samples he could probably in time have a nice root established that would update via his.zips.

Android on Pinebook is working very slow and leggy. I installed latest version on eMMC.

on first boot let it sit and do its thing - after the first reboot it should be better. Also, which Android version  - 7.1 ?
