Manjaro ARM for Beelink GS King X

The Manjaro ARM project is proud to announce the first alpha release for Beelink GS King X !!
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-gsking-x-Alpha-17-11-2020.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-gsking-x-Alpha-17-11-2020.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

Users can put their HDD in Bays to sleep using a package called hd-idle
Install the package using

Enable it but editing its config file in /etc/config.d/hd-idle and set the timing as per your requirement.

By stopping the burn at 15%, will that kill the device for ever?  When I wish to go back to the native Android, does the Burn tool work again to restore it?
Also, when I tried your Linux on another device, the fonts were too small to read at a 10' distance......  And I am not that good in Linux, I can muddle my way through it......

Hello,
At 15% it erases the emmc and when you remove it then it will have a blank emmc and this will just have no os on emmc.

Yes the burning tool will work like normal even after you erase the emmc using 15% cable removal method.
If you want to get Android again on emmc then just run the same process till 100%

Just to let users know that boot sequence is stored in Spi flash which is not erased at all.  So no need to worry about having a dead device just need to take care of the data so please make sure to backup all the data on emmc.
The test image is KDE Plasma and in this you can increase the scaling of the screen if you need bigger screen or just change the resolution if needed.

Good luck.

Yes ofcourse you can install samba and Emby server(Either Docker or native)

Currently I am running Samba and Jellyfin (docker). It is working very well.

I will try to do a tutorial for you or get you some links to follow if I don't get time.
