It can boot from SD or from an included and replaceable eMMC module.

Status

Initial support information can be found different WIP repositories:

There is more information in the respective READMEs, but the gist of it is that those repositories can be used to build a system image either through cross-compilation or native aarch64-linux build, with the usual caveats.

The repositories also serve as an overlay that can be used in your system configuration thereafter.

Board-specific installation notes

Serial console

Details about the pinout for the headphone jack are available on the PINE64 wiki. It is also available on their store. The serial settings are the usual Rockchip settings.

Compatibility notes
