If you are talking about the PineTab with the "keyboard case", that works like a least on Mobian. I did not try it with another distro, yet.

We are ecclectic at grabbing the best things in town: @martijnbraam's megapixel camera app is now available (and the default camera for new installs).
Also, if an upgrade fails due to a gnome-camera [pinhole] dependency: you need to get rid of python3-yoyo-migrations which is superseded by Debian's python3-yoyo package.

Some progress on getting sound working on the .

I can confirm that with the latest @mobian update the touchpad on the pinetab works flawlessly , amazing work !

I highly suggest giving #Mobian a try on your #PinePhone!

It's by far the most stable and feature complete distro I've tried thus far. ...And I really didn't expect to be impressed & certainly didn't think I would like it more than #Manjaro (being the #Arch simp that I am).

No distro is perfected for this device as of yet, but this is by far the best candidate to make it a viable daily-driver at this moment.

@mobian runs ! I mean, it's a little funky in terms of screen real estate, on the Pinephone, but emacs! On a mobile phone! Applause. 👏

If you want to use @mobian on your 3GB, you can do so starting with the nightly build as of 20200903.

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.

Starting with next build, there will be no more default password "root" for user root in @mobian. In fact, root will have no password at all. Also the silly restriction to have a non-numeric password for regular users is gone.

Your phone tends to suspend while doing system upgrades with apt? It blanks your screen while watching movies with mpv? Give it a boost on @mobian by installing 'coffeine' (don't ask). Available in the next mobian mirror near you. Details on usage on

@mcol Welcome :) - I'm trying #mobian at the moment also on a #pinephone. If you need a keyboard - my bluetooth keyboard worked right away.

And before you ask..., the failing asound comes straight from the debian repos and not ours. SOmething seems to be configured differently and failing on mobian.

Hola mobianistas. SERVICE NOTICE: Don't upgrade from asound and asound-data beyond libasound2_1.2.2-2.3. Todays upgrade breaks your phone calls as it messes up sound profiles somehow. Don't ask me about details right now, I don't know them. (again: 1.2.2-2.3 is fine.)
