What works

The kernel builds.

What does not work

It does not boot (it goes straight to recovery).

According to this document, the bootloader requires a signed boot.img so it might not be possible to use our own.

How to enter flash mode

Press volume down and power button at the same time.

Installation

The Revolution uses the Intel bootimg format, similar to the Asus Zenfone 5 (asus-t00f).

This tool can be used to generate an image in this format.
