Google Nexus 4 (lg-mako)
- PabloCastellano and robb4 on IRC: Workaround for red screen bug (#54)
pmbootstrap init pmbootstrap install (enter fastboot, see below) pmbootstrap flasher flash_system pmbootstrap flasher boot
To flash the kernel, you can choose
pmbootstrap flasher flash kernel (but charging and power off doesn't work as expected anymore, see below).
Entering "Fastboot mode"
Volume Down +
Power, let go of
Power once the device display does something (e.g. turns from battery icon to black screen).
Charging and power off (after flashing the postmarketOS kernel)
You can flash the postmarketOS kernel, but instead of charging the battery, it will boot straight into postmarketOS (or the on screen keyboard to type in the password). Right now, the best way to charge it from that situation is to boot the recovery TWRP.
You can properly turn the device off by unplugging the usb cable, then booting into fastboot, then choosing power off.
- Weston (has the red screen bug, but we have a workaround for that now 👍 )
What does not work
- The rest (Wifi, bluetooth, making calls, ...)
- fbsplash only displays splash images very shortly, then goes to black screen
It *should* be possible to run The Mainline Kernel on the lg-mako, maybe we need to write a display driver, but there's a tutorial for it. I (ollieparanoid) didn't do enough research on this yet - if you're interested in doing this, please talk to opendata26 from postmarketOS and robclark from the freedreno project. With their help it should be quite feasible.
- Freedreno backport to 3.4.0 (couldn't make it work out of the box and I suggest trying to get mainline working instead of spending time on this one)
- Freedreno backport to 3.0.8 (#38)
