=== Boot order ===
=== Boot order ===
On the PinePhone Pro the eMMC (the internal storage of the phone) has a higher boot priority than the microSD card (see [[RK3399 boot sequence#Boot sequence details|boot sequence details]] for details regarding the boot sequence). That behavior is in contrast to the original PinePhone with the Allwinner A64 SoC, where the microSD card has a higher boot priority.


The '''Explorer Edition''' comes with a modified U-Boot pointing to the microSD card pre-installed to the eMMC. The microSD card can be (temporarily) booted instead of the pre-installed operating system, when the power key is shortly held at boot. To always boot from the microSD card it is recommended to wipe U-Boot from the eMMC. When the pre-installed bootloader was overwritten with a bootloader without such a configuration, the ''RE'' button underneath the back cover of the phone can also be used to temporarily bypass the eMMC. The button may however only be pressed shortly for a few seconds during boot, otherwise the eMMC won't be initialized in the operating system.
The PinePhone Pro's internal storage (called '''eMMC''') has a higher boot priority than the microSD card (see [[RK3399 boot sequence#Boot sequence details|boot sequence details]] for details regarding the boot sequence).


The '''Developer Edition''', which was an earlier revision intended for development, was coming with an Android factory OS preinstalled. For details regarding how to remove the bootloader and the preinstalled OS of the eMMC for Developer Edition, please see the relevant wiki [[PinePhone Pro Developer Edition#Nuking the factory AOSP installation|article]]. The eMMC on the Developer Edition can be bypassed by shorting two specific contact points, please join the community chat for any questions regarding the process.
The '''Explorer Edition''' internal storage comes pre-flashed with an installation of ''Manjaro'' (using the ''Plasma Mobile'' desktop). The pre-flashed operating system can be overwritten at any time and it is also possible to wipe the pre-flashed operating system to make the phone boot from a microSD card, please see the [[PinePhone Pro#Installation instructions|installation instructions]] for the details. The eMMC on the Explorer Edition can be bypassed by holding the '''RE''' button underneath the back cover for multiple seconds while booting. Please see the section [[PinePhone Pro#Bypassing the eMMC|bypassing the eMMC]] for details on how to do this.
