I guess if I boot into Linux that's still on the eMMC, I can configure the headphone jack as a serial port ... hopefully I can see some useful messages?

2 things:

I think you have to open the back and move a switch near the USB jack
on the same side as the headphone jack to change the headphone jack to
a serial port. Documentation for this thing is either not good or not
easy to find, can't tell which.

But I don't know about the switch for sure because the serial cable I
got with my Pinebook doesn't work. I don't get a tty device on my Mac
or NetBSD. On Linux I get a /dev/ttyUSB0 but as soon as I try to use
it with screen it exits suddenly. Haven't tried minicom yet.
