We already have flashable pre-built images... https://images.postmarketos.org/pinephone/

As for "improving the tool", there is nothing really wrong with it. The errors you're having seem to not be the fault of pmbootstrap. Running it on Ubuntu Touch especially is just a non-tested or supported setup.

I've tried multiple times to install both the phosh and plasma versions but it always stops at this line

(rootfs_pine64-pinephone) mkinitfs postmarketos-allwinner

After looking into this, I found a suggestion to use the -t option but now it just sits there forever (I'm talking about hours).

I get the same results with phosh and plasma-mobile. I'm using Kubuntu 19.10, with all recommended dependencies.

I also ran the pmbootstrap update command


Is there any way to get past this?


UPDATE: Now installed, see comment below

I did this and re-tried the install and it finally worked.


Thanks very much     Wink

I also had something like that. In my case I had to format the card to ext4. Then it worked (the card should not be mounted)
