Read if you experience issues with screen flickering

Edit (15/10/2017) Newest pre-release image allows you to set display mode to fix flickering. Check ayufan's git

It seems that the newest batch (as of 04/08/2017) of Pinebooks shipped with an older Ubuntu image based on 3.10.105-bsp-1.2-ayufan-59 (you can check if your's is running this version by typing uname -a in terminal). 

Some Pinebook's experience screen flickering while running this kernel version, which is solved by upgrading to newest release version. 

To update your installation navitgate to /usr/local/sbin and run the following update scripts: 

Code:
sudo ./pine64_update_kernel.sh 0.6.2
sudo ./pine64_update_uboot.sh 0.6.2
sudo ./pine64_update_package.sh 0.6.2

Run all three and then reboot.


For those feeling adventures and who want to try out pre-release images with additional features but also bugs and broken settings please see ayufan's git releases with instructions on how to update.

Thank You, This information solved the screen flicker on my new Pinebook 14.  Now I just need to do some research on the low sound volume.

in alsamixer, settings at the very end (jut hold down right arrow key) called 'speaker volume' will allow you to increase the volume.

Thank you Luke! The flickering was driving me nuts, but this has fixed it :-)

I've got annoying flickers on the screen of my new Pinebook. I noticed them right after I had turned on my Pinebook :/ So, then I tried to update as it is recommended above but that didn't fix that issue. Any suggestions? 
PS At least, I've managed to increase the sound

Clearly different to what most users experience - do join in the IRC will be easier to troubleshoot.

I think the noise is pretty much the same like the one reported here:
https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=4843
So I was hoping that is a common problem that can be fixed very  easy :/
