Ah, good. It works :)

Takes approx 1 minute on GTA04 but then I get this screen:


Touch is not properly working as Mark already reported.

On the Pyra, "systemctl start phosh" makes the text framebuffer console
cursor stop blinking and "systemctl stop phosh" makes it blink again.

Xwayland is running but screen remains black. Maybe Xwayland can't
handle our TILER rotation properly.

So we should add some autostart to the rootfs image.

Maybe someone can provide a phosh.service file so that I can add it to
/etc/systemd/system/ in the letux-phosh.deb package.

BR and happy testing,
