How to enter flash mode

Hold down Power + Volume Down while booting to enter Flash Mode.

Installation

Install the lk2nd bootloader, as it is required to handle some quirks with msm8916 devices on mainline kernels. Flash the lk2nd.img image to the boot partition with fastboot flash boot /path/to/lk2nd.img. lk2nd also provides a fastboot interface that allows for flashing kernels without overwriting lk2nd itself. To enter it, power on the device, then hold down Vol Down as soon as you see the boot splash. You should be presented with a menu that looks like the following:

After that, proceed with installation as usual, using lk2nd's fastboot interface to flash the kernel and rootfs.

Usage
