=== Official Debian Installer Images ===
* Uses only the upstream kernel and firmware without special patches
* No graphical display yet, works only through serial console
* Requires adding the non-free component to your /etc/apt/sources.list file and installing the "firmware-linux" package for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support
* Installer is loaded into RAM, can install onto the same media it's booted off of
* Supports automatic partitioning and full disk encryption through LVM
* Installer currently doesn't install the bootloader, leaving the installed system in an unbootable state until it's manually added
[https://d-i.debian.org/daily-images/arm64/daily/netboot/SD-card-images/ The relevant files are built daily here] and may sometimes be unavailable if the build system is having issues. The "README.concatenateable_images" file provides instructions on how to combine the partition.img.gz file with the firmware.pinebook-pro.rk3399.img.gz file in order to create a DD-able image.
The official images are '''not''' recommended yet until the display begins working and the installer properly installs the bootloader. Most users will want to see [[Pinebook Pro Debian Installer|Daniel Thompson's Debian Installer]] instead.
