Wow, you can have a _complete_ set of digital computing devices for less than $500 USD with @PINE64 stuff.
* PineBook Pro: 199.99
* PineTab+keyboard: 119.98 (pre-order)
* PinePhone: 149.99 (uBPorts ed.)
* PineTime: 24.99 (dev kit)
= Total: $494.95 USD
They're all designed with FOSS in mind and schematics are provided. That's awesome.
You've waited long enough. The PineTab preorders are now open!
The Pine64 forum (https://forum.pine64.org/) has now moved to its new home on our cluster, but the change may not have made it to your DNS server yet.
If you see the banner shown below, you are on the now active forum! If you see a message about read-only mode, DNS has not updated for you yet.
We're now in the midst of our transition to hosting all infrastructure on the #RockPro64 Cluster!
- Wiki (https://wiki.pine64.org) is now live from the cluster.
- Forum (https://forum.pine64.org) will begin its transition at 6pm UTC on June 9th. It will be in read-only mode until the transition is complete.
- Main Site (https://pine64.org) comments are already disabled, as it will be moved immediately after the forum.
It's about time to finally move all our infrastructure to the #RockPro64 cluster setup! It's been a long time coming. 😊
Expect some downtime for our website, forum, wiki, and IRC in the coming days. Other chat protocols will remain up, but may not be bridged at times. Support and Store sites will be unaffected.
Another #PinebookPro issue from the factory. 🤦♂️
If your newly arrived PBP will not boot, try booting from SD.
If it boots from SD, you may need to flip the "eMMC disable" switch in order for normal boot.
See our wiki for how to find and flip the switch: https://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/Pinebook_Pro#Accessing_the_Internals_-_Disassembly_and_Reassembly

Everyone receiving their #PinebookPro laptops:
It appears that the factory has left the WiFi privacy switches turned ON. (WiFi disabled) 🤦♂️
To enable WiFi you'll need to disengage the privacy switch: https://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/Pinebook_Pro#Privacy_Switches
