Step By Step Instructions!!! It's SUPER SIMPLE!
I reinstalled Manjaro XFCE for the Pinebook Pro and it was very easy to install the OS to the m.2 NVME and bypassing the Slower EMMC. Battery Life is is nearly identical, but the overall performance is greatly improved. Now, If I could get a Pinebook Pro with 8 or 16 gigs of RAM! I used the Manjaro ARM GUI Installer to install the OS to the M.2/NVME SSD. Here is the steps I used!
#1 Use an SD Card to boot from.
#2 I used G-Parted to erase the EMMC and I moved the Manjaro XFCE ISO to the Pinebook via a USB Thumb Drive.
#3 I dumped the ISO on the USB Thumb Drive into Thunar.
#4 I used the Manjaro ARM installer App I picked the local ISO from Thunar and it installed Manjaro XFCE to the NVME leaving the EMMC Blank!
