What works

  • Building kernel
  • Booting kernel via fastboot
  • Telnet to initramfs

What does not work

  • Splash image
  • Booting past initramfs (untested currently)
  • Everything else (no graphics, Wi-Fi, touchscreen, you tell me)

How to enter flash mode

The Nexus 6P, like all Google Nexus devices, uses Fastboot as the flashing protocol.

To enter Fastboot mode, hold Volume Down while powering on the device. Let go of Volume Down when a picture of a green Android mascot shows up on the screen.
