An unofficial Debian Installer for Pinebook Pro
@danielt: Is the installer meant to work for booting from the USB slots?

After installing to a USB and attempting to boot from it, the Pinebook Pro just powers on with a black screen.
The same happened when I tried to boot my existing SD card installation through a USB slot via an SD-to-USB adapter.

I ask because I'm getting "IO error" when doing `cryptsetup open` on a certain SD card. I don't get the error when using an SD-to-USB adapter, so I'm worried that this is a sign of a failing SD slot. (Pinebook Pro is only 1-year old!) It would be much more reassuring (for recovery purposes) if I can boot from USB instead of SD.
I don't think boot from USB works, never looked into it.
Good news, everyone!
Latest official Debian kernel package (5.10.0-7) boots fine on PBP, with working screen and all.

It is worth noting that this is only available on sid currently, but should be in testing soon(ish) I believe the package version was linux-image-arm64 5.10.38-1.
Hello --- thanks very much for making this installer; I would love to run stock Debian on my new PBP. Note that I say 'would love', because while the installer runs fine, it kernel panics on boot...

The crash happens at T+13s, well into multiuser startup, and I've pasted the relevant bits blow (does this forum have an attach button? I can't find one). The reference to gpio-key-power looks suspicious.

The kernel version the installer used is linux-image-pinebookpro-arm64 (5.7.19-30-geadcd756eb47-1). Is this new, by any chance?

Hi!

It would be best to create a new thread for help on this so that it can get more attention and it wont be buried in the old thread.
