I'm still using the oldstable my pinebook  pro came with.

TIA.

Right there with ya, I was more lost after reading it.


You download firmware.pinebook-pro-rk3399.img.gz and partition.img.gz and create complete_image.img via

Code:
zcat firmware.pinebook-pro-rk3399.img.gz partition.img.gz > complete_image.img

You burn complete_image.img on a micro-sd card and boot it. That's the installer. kuleszdl was our guinea pig and went through the installation process here https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?...4#pid64874. Reading through it, I'm convinced that most want to use Daniel's installer, instead. In the end you get the same "kind of installation" and software onto your emmc or micro-sd card. The major difference is Daniel's installer installs a more recent kernel. For a pure Debian experience you can remove his repro from /etc/apt/ and install Debian's kernel.


PS: Nobody ever tried "apt-get dist-upgrade" from the preinstalled Debian 9 to Debian 10 or 11. There are a lot of customizations which don't apply to a vanilla Debian 10 or 11 installation.. So, I assume a lot of small things would go wrong and a lot of cleanup work becomes necessary.
