How to enter flash mode

The Essential Phone uses Fastboot as the flashing protocol.

To enter Fastboot mode, hold Volume Down while powering on the device. Let go of Volume Down when "Fastboot mode" displays on the screen.

Installation

   fastboot --set-active=a
   pmbootstrap flasher flash_rootfs --partition system_a
   pmbootstrap flasher flash_kernel --partition boot_a

Status

Mata successfully boots into a stable session however, there is currently no touch capability. The device required is /dev/event5 which will load on a TWRP partition, but not in pmOS due to blobs.

Weston and GNOME display graphical outputs.
