The [https://gitlab.manjaro.org/manjaro-arm/applications/manjaro-arm-installer manjaro-arm-installer] script is intended to install Manjaro ARM directly to SD/eMMC cards without the need for images (including LXQT, Mate & CuboCore editions, as well as full disk encryption). Running on a Linux x86 computer, it can install Manjaro ARM directly to an empty eMMC using an eMMC to USB adapter. The script can also be run from SD to install an image to the eMMC.

  • The Manjaro project offers a mainline kernel with patches and modules to support PBPro hardware in two flavors. Both provide DD images and installer images (DD to SD card which will then install to eMMC when booted).
  • To learn more about Manjaro please visit Manjaro Forum
  • You can follow the ongoing discussion about Twister OS on the PINE64 forum (https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=8207)

Manjaro ARM installer

The manjaro-arm-installer script is intended to install Manjaro ARM directly to SD/eMMC cards without the need for images (including LXQT, Mate & CuboCore editions, as well as full disk encryption). Running on a Linux x86 computer, it can install Manjaro ARM directly to an empty eMMC using an eMMC to USB adapter. The script can also be run from SD to install an image to the eMMC.

For more information, see the Pinebook_Pro_Debian_Installer wiki page

Official Debian Installer Images

  • Uses only the upstream kernel and firmware without special patches
  • No graphical display yet, works only through serial console
