Installing to microSD card

  1. Download the image file from here.
  2. You can use the Disks application if you are on GNOME or similar desktops similar to the steps in this System76 article.

Booting from microSD card

  1. Download the image file again to the microSD card while booted from it.
  2. Now write the image to the eMMC using this command:
xzcat Armbian_22.08.1_Pinebook-pro_jammy_current_5.15.63.img.xz | sudo dd of=/dev/mmcblk2 bs=4M status=progress

Mount the eMMC install

  1. Run this command:
sudo mount /dev/mmcblk2p1/

From there download this replacement file using this command:

wget http.kali.org/dists/kali-dev/main/installer-arm64/current/images/device-tree/rockchip/rk3399-pinebook-pro.dtb

Then replace it:

sudo mv rk3399-pinebook-pro.dtb /mnt/boot/dtb/rockchip/

Now shutdown to remove the microSD card and reboot into the eMMC:

sudo shutdown now
