Pinebook Pro with new touchpad firmware

Information about the new touchpad firmware for Pinebook Pro and instructions on how to install it has appeared on the Pine64 forum. The new firmware significantly improves the work of the touchpad.

To update the firmware, just follow the instructions that are available on the GitHub page.  If you’re a Manjaro ARM user, an updated package containing the new firmware updater utility will be available shortly (package pinebook-pro-keyboard-updater, version 0.0.3-1).  However, please note that updating the firmware carries a small risk of permanently disabling the trackpad and keyboard, effectively bricking them. Proceed at your own risk.
