That’s interesting. Because I was using the Pinebook Pro with an SD Card for a year already -- it was using the graphical console right from the start of the booting process. No serial console needed. Then my SD Card broke, and I thought let’s just use a brand new build and “burn” a new SD Card from it. And now nothing works anymore. Therefore my confusion.
