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

the  readme was a bit obscure
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.
zcat worked fine for making complete_image, thank you.

All right,  2 questions.

how do I 'burn' the complete_image to the sdcard, using dd, on the pinebook pro,  booting from the default debian oldstable install; and could you link me to daniells installer? I'm fine using any option to get unstable installed on this machine,  but the boot process for arm is confusing to this long term (18 years now) debian user.

Thanks in advance!

edit to add

You mean this for daniels installer?

I'll try it again,  last time I did, a few months ago, I had no luck, but I'll try again.
Thanks.
