@m0n5t3r Everyone's hammering the server so hard that we had to upgrade the hardware!

The Pine Store is online again as of a few hours ago. Sorry for the confusion, we had some miscommunication last night.

The Pine Store is down until further notice due to a serious issue. Manjaro CE PinePhone preorders unfortunately must be postponed. More information will be given later.

@zigpress Mostly likely it's because you have other items inside the same order. There's shipping restrictions on items that contain a lithium battery (including the PinePhone).

September Blog Update Time!

- We're an Arm ecosystem partner now!
- New and improved Pine Store upcoming

- production delay due to LCD shortage

- new image releases

- Manjaro CE preorders start Sept. 17

- camera developments

- p-boot multi-image loader



Nvidia buying ARM is unlikely to change anything for us.


The currently shipping version is the final hardware! All the work left ahead of us is in software. But there's plenty of incredible software developers getting us there. 😊


There's no plans at the moment for that. The potential market for such a case is way too small to justify the effort and expense of putting it into production.

We are upgrading the cluster to make it more reliable and easier to maintain remotely.

Scheduled downtime 12 Sept. at 11 AM CET (5/6AM CDT/EDT).

Services will be offline no longer than 5hrs.

Pine Store will remain operational.

New Pine Store (WIP pictures) with more payment options (Stripe) being built. We are, however, struggling with crypto payments (@BTCPayServer), since we haven't received a response from
Bitstamp as of today. We won't use Kraken - their form requires disclosure of private info.

@romariorios It's in stock right now, if you want an ANSI keyboard model. :)

@brad It's down at the moment. It has been having many issues and is waiting for us to have time to debug it. :)

@sporksmith The cover can be a bit tricky to come off... if you haven't noticed it yet, there's a notch in the bottom right corner where it's easiest to pull open.

PINE64 boosted

The first edition has been arriving into people's hands, including some of our developers!

Have you received yours yet, how has your experience been with it so far? Remember to update your system as the first thing you do!

@Azt3c @ManjaroARM The RAM and eMMC can't be upgraded, but the dock will likely be available on its own later (or you could find a similar one elsewhere -- likely should work!)

We’re pleased to announce that the next Community Edition will feature @ManjaroARM

Variants available:

* Regular CE - 2GB RAM/ 16GB eMMC

* Convergence Package - 3GB RAM/ 32GB eMMC bundled with a USB-C dock.

Pre-orders open mid September.


We know you like photos from the production-line, so here are some pictures of
@postmarketOS CE from the factory for you to enjoy.


- QA and component testing (using !)
- a 3GB RAM/32GB eMMC mainboard
- a bunch of units awaiting assembly.

@requiem @ari It's not on the current OS install on my PBP, but it's pretty straightforward for anyone who wants to do it.

Set up QEMU for a i486 or P1, give it a few hundred megs of RAM, a small HDD image, and virtual CD and floppy drives. From there, it's like installing on a real machine.
