Manjaro ARM for Beelink GT King Pro
The Manjaro ARM project is proud to announce the first alpha release for Beelink GT King Pro !!
Thanks to Beelink for the sample device. This image is running Mainline 5.9.0 Linux kernel.

CAUTION: To run this image you will need to erase android on emmc without erasing the emmc this will not boot at all.
Try only if you want to test it as you will lose all the data on emmc.
I or Manjaro ARM Linux will not be responsible for the lose of your data, this is Alpla image for testing and development only.

How to install:
  • Download the Manjaro-ARM-kde-plasma-gtking-pro-Mainline.img.xz image/xz file from the download location. Verify that the download completed successfully.
  • Install Etcher (sudo pacman -S etcher if on Manjaro) and burn the to an SD card (8 GB or larger).
  • Erase the emmc, this can only be done by flashing the latest android image using the burning tool and once it started burning then wait for it to reach 15% and unplug the usb cable once you see 15% on the burning tool. This will erase the emmc.
  • Now insert the sd card which you have flashed Manjaro-ARM-kde-plasma-gtking-pro-Mainline.img.xz mage on.
  • This it should recognize the SD card as a bootable device and boot from it.
  • You will see the Kernel loading and it will take you to the First Time OEM Setup screen

First Time setup
This release sports the First Time setup for all images, also via SSH. This means that at first boot, you will be asked about the following:
  • keyboard layout
  • username
  • additional user groups (optional)
  • full name
  • password for that username
  • password for root
  • timezone
  • locale
  • hostname
Then the setup script will set these settings and reboot to the login screen. If it fails to restart then just power off and power on the device.

On first boot during the login screen please switch the KDE Session from Plasma Wayland to just Plasma.
Also run the sound service to enable sound and reboot.
Pass this command in konsole(terminal):
  1. sudo systemctl enable sound --now
Copy the Code

Nearly impossible at this stage until someone find's out the changes that makes kernel panic on vendor uboot.

I will update this image to newer uboot-2021 version as we got it to read 4gb ram now. :D

Finally I can get rid of the Android on my GS King X and get Mainline uboot and Mainline Linux Kernel which will make GS King X one of the best Linux NAS/Media Server box on ARM :D

Hello,
Nothing yet,  one of the linux kernel developer have recieved the device and will start looking into it once he gets time, he can debug in detail and try to adjust the kernel or advice Beelink to make changes to the uboot.
We will have to wait some more to find the issue accurately and a possible solution.
