Would you mind sharing how you wrote the image to the SD card? I tried to do it earlier this week but I wasn't able to get the display to come up.

The key for me to get display working was using this u-boot with NVMe support
https://github.com/pcm720/rockchip-u-boot/releases/

Then following excellent OpenBSD install instructions.

I tried later u-boot releases and they didn't work as well.

I still need to get USB working which I think will also solve keyboard and mouse not working.

I think it's mostly u-boot related since with later u-boot releases USB was working but no display.

Damned, so the trick would be to find a u-boot release that has display and USB working.

So I don't even need to try before that solution is found, because I don't have a serial console cable at hands?

The article on xosc.org is missing some crucial details. I can get the OpenBSD installer to work, and I can install OpenBSD on the eMMC of my PBP, but it will not boot. It finds nothing to boot, and falls back to trying PXE boot, and then just stops at its firmware console. The author must've flashed a different u-boot version or so to his eMMC to make it all work, probably the same set used to get the installer working.

It's been a while since this was reported, but I was encountering this, so I'll just post my solution for the sake of anyone else who might be struggling with this.

My Pinebook Pro is from January when it was still shipping with Debian, which was still on my eMMC. After installing Manjaro 20.06 to the eMMC and making sure everything was up to date, I no longer have this problem and my OpenBSD SD card boots into the installer. I guess there is some problem with the version of U-Boot installed with Debian on Pinebook Pros made before the switch to Manjaro. There's probably a quicker way to accomplish that fix, but I'm still getting acquainted with this architecture, so this was easier for me.
