edit 2: so I will sticky this post in hope of others seeing it before asking the same question Wink

ah ha, looks like the "select pinebook" option is what im missing. didn't realize that part at the top was a dropdown!
as always when you bang your head against something, you are just making yourself dumber, haha

I have almost made this mistake a few times, but I catch it once I realize that there are many more options for the older, more developer-tested PINE A64+.
it doesn't get happy
it doesn't get sad
it just runs programs
A big thanks to everyone involved in producing the Pinebook images;  

... finally got my Pinebook backed up last night and successfully upgraded it to 0.6.2 early this morning with no real difficulties;  thanks again!

Now its off to the office (Caribou Coffee House) to put it through its paces !

Hello everyone !

No matter what I try I am unable to boot a Linux image on freshly arrived Pinebook. Right after it arrived I build in the 64GB eMMC (did not event boot from the original 16GB). After I charged the Pinebook for several hours it started with an Android image.

I downloaded the Pine64 Installer and followed the steps as described here but the Pinebook newer boots from the card. After start/reboot the Pine logo appears and after a while the android boot animation start to run on the screen. Did I miss something ? Do I need to press any button on start something ?

As far I tried following images:

and the build 0.5.2-59 from the Pine64 Installer selection.

I tried a Samsung EVO sdhc UHS-I 32GB and Verbatim 8GB MicroSD cards. No difference.
I tried the Verbatim SD card again and after the pinebook booted to Android and rebooted from there, pinebook booted linux - finaly! So maybe there is an incompatibility with some SD cards.

I used the script to write liux on the eMMC and now I am good to go.
