Downloaded directly from Git. Used 2 sdcard's with Pine64 Installer and tried with .xz file and .img file also. Don't know what am I doing wrong.
Do I have bricked Pinebook?? Well, no I tried Armbian afterwards and it is working. You probably uploaded wrong file on Git, all three files have the same size.

An help??? What to do??? This is so irritating!

This doesn't work:
https://github.com/anarsoul/linux-build/...5-1.img.xz

Tried previous release without xfce, that one is working!

I've downloaded archlinux-xfce-pinebook-20171225-1.img.xz, which has md5: 87a95397eaa9880a44883c007c50ef77

I've manually unzipped it and then wrote to sdcard using wind32-disk-imager. That works for me!

Hi I also did the same thing with various SD cards, and various programs for flashing image and no luck. I think that the problem lies in my Pinebook. Anyway it is strange, because all other images are working fine.

Only thing that I can do is buy a cable and debug kernel. Is this cable sufficient:

My intention is to connect it with my Raspberry Pi and finally see what is wrong.

After talking with anarsoul, we concluded that problem is in u-boot. At least in my case on my brand new, very little used Pinebook.

I decided not to spend time and money on debugging kernel and sending data to anarsoul for analysis. Instead I will wait for a new release for eMMC which will not come very soon because it is not easy to fix the problem which is anarsoul currently experiencing. Hopefully new version will work for me, in the meanwhile I will also wait for some other builds in the future which are following latest Linux OS systems, where I can install latest packages and at the same time enjoy speed and simplicity. Something like Armbian, but with latest Linux OS not some LTS version. That would be my dream. Something like Raspbian.

Peace.
