Customised (encrypted) eMMC installation using Anarsoul's ArchLinux
#23
I hate to bump an old thread, but for the benefit of anybody who might run across this from a search engine, as of this writing the mainline Arch-ARM aarch64 kernel (currently 5.8.9-2) boots properly and functions well on the original Pinebook, with the following minor caveats:

After booting the kernel, only a black screen is displayed, so the encryption password prompt is not visible. However, the prompt does load properly, so typing the encryption password and pressing enter will continue the booting process to the login prompt. In other words the prompt is there, you just can't see it.

The rtl8723cs dkms module package and bluetooth firmware package need to be built locally or downloaded from the Manjaro-ARM repositories and installed manually as there are no binaries in the Arch-ARM core repository.
