@Luke 

will you come out to clarify that having manjaro installed on the pinebook pro is a standard thing as advertised or is it a non-essential ? 

can i have the expectation that manjaro will be installed when i power up my device upon received?

Yes, you absolutely should have received a unit with Manjaro preinstalled. I have believe that during QA your original PBP was deemed somehow faulty or not up-to the standard and exchanged for one kept in storage (we keep a handful of units for RMA from each production). Those units were not flashed with Manjaro however, as they were produced previously - in January if memory serves me right.

As for resolving the situation: Manjaro offers an installer that will allow you to flash their default OS image to eMMC using a SD card in a matter of minutes - link

If you require assistance with this process, please join the chats and someone will walk you though the required steps. Alternatively, you're welcome to join Manjaro ARM forums and submit your query there.

Apologies for the situation.


thank you for clarifying 
maybe @nathanielwheeler will need this help

i am still waiting for my PBP
