== Mobian ==
An unofficial Gentoo overlay with ebuilds for the PinePhone. There is no image - you'll be building it yourself, picking which kernel, bootloader and desktop environment you want to use.
[[File:Debian-logo.png]]
 
An unofficial Debian build for ARM64 running with the Phosh user interface (developed by Purism, Phosh uses Wayland instead of Xorg). The base system is pure Debian, with only the GUI applications and a few others (ModemManager, WiFi chip firmware) being built from modified sources (as well as the kernel and u-boot). Current version is Debian Bullseye.

It is recommended that you log your bug reports in [https://gitlab.com/mobian1/issues the project's issue tracker]. As a general rule, issues with third-party apps (even the default ones) should be reported upstream. A Mobian issue would be related to getting the hardware to work on the PinePhone, but if unsure where the issue should be reported just open a ticket or ask. Feel free to pick an open issue to work on, or send a merge request on [https://gitlab.com/mobian1 Gitlab].

[[File:Sailfish_logo.png|150px]]


Sailfish OS is a Linux-based operating system based on open source projects such as Mer and including a closed source UI.
Based on KDE Neon for the desktop, comes with Plasma Mobile.


* ''' Download location '''
* ''' Download location '''
The SailfishOS image is built on Gitlab CI. The latest image can be installed using the [https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sailfish-on-dontbeevil/flash-it/master/flash-it.sh flashing script].
Plasma mobile images can be found [https://images.plasma-mobile.org/pinephone/ here].
 
The script downloads the image and bootloader from our CI, extracts everything and burns it onto the SD card. '''Note:''' The script will format and erase the SD card!


Instructions:
# Download the flashing script
# Insert a microSD card in your device
# Make the script executable: <code>chmod +x flash-it.sh</code>
# Verify that you have the <code>bsdtar</code> package installed
# Execute it: <code>./flash-it.sh</code>
# Follow the instructions. Some commands in the script require root permissions (for example: mounting and flashing the SD card).

NB The first run sometimes stalls before the tutorial. Reboot and it starts from setting the security pin.
The homescreen may be locked unless you boot with a sim card inserted. An old expired sim will do. If you do not have a SIM card on hands, do NOT set a security code on first boot. When a screen with a loading circle is displayed, just left/right swipe it away.
May 4th 2020: 3.3.0.16 release. Nextcloud integration.
Sept 17. Calls work.....sort of. Volunteer troubleshooters required. 4G works. Nextcloud sync works. Camera is work-in-progress.
October 10. The most recent build still has call problems. The battery indicator stays at value on boot and the battery discharges very quickly. Apart from all that SFOS is still the snappiest most responsive UI, with none of the scaling and lagging problems that make phosh such a drag.
October 20. New build improves battery indicator but it's still erratic. Calls still problematic. No camera.
December 1. New image updated to 3.4.0.24. If you SSH, the user is "defaultuser" instead of "nemo".
On the pinephone the boot process still takes 2 or three attempts before getting to the enter security pin screen.
If you're not familiar with SFOS pay attention to the tutorial - the interface works great but isn't immediately obvious. If you are familiar with SF you can skip the tutorial by touching all 4 corners starting top left. There is a limited selection of apps available from the Jolla store, the vast majority are hosted on openrepos.net. The Storeman app for openrepos is now preinstalled, and also Webcat browser as the built in browser is not working at the moment.

== Arch Linux ARM ==
== Maemo Leste ==
[[File:Archlinux-logo.png|100px]]
[[File:Maemoleste-logo.png|100px]]
 
[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maemo Maemo] is a trimmed-down version of Debian for mobile devices, originally a collaboration between Nokia and many open source projects (the [http://maemo.org/intro/ Maemo community]) before Nokia abandoned it. The community now takes full responsibility in developing fully open source Maemo for a variety of mobile devices.
 
The new version Maemo 7 "Leste" is an ARM64 port of [https://devuan.org/ Devuan] (Debian without systemd) and runs the mainline Linux kernel. The default user interface stack is [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hildon Hildon], [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X.Org_Server Xorg], [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matchbox_(window_manager) Matchbox WM], and [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GTK GTK]. The current version is Devuan Ascii (Debian Stretch) and they are working on an upgrade to Devuan Beowulf (Debian Buster) as well as simultaneous support for both Devuan and Debian. In addition to the main repository, they [https://maemo-leste.github.io/maemo-leste-repositories-and-community-packages.html announced] a [https://github.com/maemo-leste-extras/bugtracker community repository]. To keep updated they use automation in their package maintenance with [https://github.com/maemo-leste/jenkins-integration jenkins] (similar to [https://www.debian.org/devel/buildd/ debian's buildd]). Porting packages to Maemo Leste is basically a simple matter of porting to arm64 version of Debian/Devuan, which benefits both projects.


(Unofficial) Arch Linux ARM with Phosh as the UI selection, it's usable on the PinePhone and currently being maintained by the DanctNIX community.

The SailfishOS image is built on Gitlab CI. The latest image can be installed using the [https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sailfish-on-dontbeevil/flash-it/master/flash-it.sh flashing script].


openSUSE Tumbleweed running on the PinePhone.
The script downloads the image and bootloader from our CI, extracts everything and burns it onto the SD card. '''Note:''' The script will format and erase the SD card!


* ''' Download location '''
Instructions:
Offical openSUSE images can be found [https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/ARM:/Factory:/Contrib:/PinePhone/images/ here].
# Download the flashing script
# Insert a microSD card in your device
# Make the script executable: <code>chmod +x flash-it.sh</code>
# Verify that you have the <code>bsdtar</code> package installed
# Execute it: <code>./flash-it.sh</code>
# Follow the instructions. Some commands in the script require root permissions (for example: mounting and flashing the SD card).

NB The first run sometimes stalls before the tutorial. Reboot and it starts from setting the security pin.
The homescreen may be locked unless you boot with a sim card inserted. An old expired sim will do. If you do not have a SIM card on hands, do NOT set a security code on first boot. When a screen with a loading circle is displayed, just left/right swipe it away.
 
May 4th 2020: 3.3.0.16 release. Nextcloud integration.
 
Sept 17. Calls work.....sort of. Volunteer troubleshooters required. 4G works. Nextcloud sync works. Camera is work-in-progress.
 
October 10. The most recent build still has call problems. The battery indicator stays at value on boot and the battery discharges very quickly. Apart from all that SFOS is still the snappiest most responsive UI, with none of the scaling and lagging problems that make phosh such a drag.
 
October 20. New build improves battery indicator but it's still erratic. Calls still problematic. No camera.
December 1. New image updated to 3.4.0.24. If you SSH, the user is "defaultuser" instead of "nemo".
On the pinephone the boot process still takes 2 or three attempts before getting to the enter security pin screen.
If you're not familiar with SFOS pay attention to the tutorial - the interface works great but isn't immediately obvious. If you are familiar with SF you can skip the tutorial by touching all 4 corners starting top left. There is a limited selection of apps available from the Jolla store, the vast majority are hosted on openrepos.net. The Storeman app for openrepos is now preinstalled, and also Webcat browser as the built in browser is not working at the moment.

* ''' Notes '''
OTA is supported: <code>zypper refresh && zypper update</code> as root (<code>devel-su</code> to get root access). Things that need reflash are bootloader specific at the moment. If improvements like crust or changes of partition layout are added then you need to reflash.

The purpose of this image is for users to easily try many of the above Linux distributions, without having to figure out how to flash them individually and juggle with many microSD cards.
