Is the non-1080p Pinebook abandoned?
#1
Hi, I want a sd to emmc image for my Pinebook but it seems that there are only two options: Xenial (old) and Android (usable but not the most suitable for office tasks) at the same time the 1080 version has updated KDE Neon and everything indicates that the project is alive.

my question is, are there more sd to emmc images that I can install? And if not, can Xenial be upgraded to Bionic at least without breaking it?

No. First of all, there are new BSP non-1080p images (stretch and bionic) and KDE Neon have a non-1080p version of their image too. Moreover, ALL mainline images work on both 1080p and 'non-1080p' Pinebooks, because the mainline kernel isn't locked down to one resolution. In other words, you've got just as many if not more OS images available for the non-1080p Pinebook.
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

I have tried KDE Neon in an SD and I have been quite satisfied with the result, but now I have thought about the lack of support for DRM. The included version of Firefox does not have and Chromium apparently does, but I did not get the Spotify web version to work. It would be great to have the best of both worlds (the desktop-oriented environment of a Linux distribution and the large number of Android apps), but as far as I've investigated the only thing that exists is Remix OS (abandoned) and Bliss OS (buggy in Pinebook)
