Download and dpkg the 5.0 kernel.

You can swap by editing extlinux in /boot - gets updated automatically when new kernel is installed.

If you are using Ayufan's kernel on Armbian (like me), once you have installed the new kernel (downloading the .deb and installing it with "dpkg -i {file.deb}"), you have to manually check / fix some stuff: see my post on Armbian https://forum.armbian.com/topic/9824-sol...ment=75613 .

I really wanted the MATE desktop on my Rock64.  I tried the bionic-mate-rock64-0.8.0rc6-1111 and bionic-mate-rock64-0.8.0rc7-1114.  Both black screened.  I then accidentally downloaded bionic-mate-rockpro64-0.8.0rc6-1111 and used Pine64 Installer as usual.  This stalled during boot with messages.

Failed to get pvym
Couldn't update frequency Transaction information

After about 30 seconds the boot continued and I was able to login.  This is now a fully functioning LAMP server with mailx and Postfix.  Pithos work fine, but YouTube crashes Firefox.  Weird.  Could the Release Candidates have been accidentally switched while coding?

OK, same thing just happened with bionic-mate-rock64-0.8.0rc8-1116.  Bionic-mate-rockpro64-0.8.0rc8-1116 worked with the Rock64 SBC.  Both rc8s gave the same gpu errors.  The mate-rockpro64 version stalled for a couple of minutes but finally gave the login screen and then worked very well.  It looks like once the gpu frequency problem is solved this will be a great OS and desktop.  I really like being able to lock/control the cpu cores.  This is feature packed.

thanks for the advice on installing 5.0 kernel.... i looked at the steps on armbian but they seemed to be missing some details. As a linux nube using Armbian at the moment, i'd need bouncing ball steps to get all the gotchas... could you expand on the steps or point me to the correct wiki? thanks.

I tried the rc9 and also got the black screen.  I then remotely logged into the router IP I had set for the Rock64 (4G).  I then used PUTTY  and a SSH tunnel.  The Rock64 had completed the boot and was running.  I then used a VNC remote after installing tightvncserver, my favorite.  The xstartup file under the .vnc folder has to be modified, but the Rock64 works well.  The best I can tell is that the black screen is caused by the inability to frequency sync with the display.  The programmers could fix this with a config.txt file where the monitor specs could be specified to sync.  I have done this on the RPi SBCs with ubuntu MATE to fill out my screen.  By all indications the Rock64 rc9 MATE version was trying to sync at 75 Hz and couldn't.  This is probably true of all the release candidates (RCs) for ubuntu MATE.

For anyone wanting the xstartup edit, it is below:
#!/bin/sh

xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
#x-terminal-emulator -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
#x-window-manager &
# Fix to make GNOME work
# export XKL_XMODMAP_DISABLE=1
# /etc/X11/Xsession
unset SESSION_MANAGER
unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS
export XKL_XMODMAP_DISABLE=1
export XKB_DEFAULT_RULES=base
/usr/bin/mate-session
