How to enter flash mode

Press Volume Down, Power, and Home all at the same time to boot to Odin mode. After lk2nd is installed, press Volume Down and Power at the same time.

Installation

lk2nd is a secondary bootloader that provides a standard fastboot interface, which can be used to boot postmarketOS without android boot flashed or pmbootstrap flasher flash_kernel.

  1. Download lk2nd-msm8916.img from Releases page on Github.
  2. Boot your phone to bootloader (Odin/Download) mode by holding Volume Down and Home while powering up.
  3. Follow lk2nd instructions to install lk2nd. Basically flash it to boot partition (heimdall flash --BOOT lk2nd-msm8916.img)
  4. Follow Qualcomm_Snapdragon_410/412_(MSM8916)#Installation to install postmarketOS.
  Note: Enter lk2nd fastboot mode by pressing only Volume Down + Power (without Home). Pressing Home additionally will bring you to the Samsung Download mode.
This device is based on the Snapdragon 410.
See the SoC page for common tips, guides and troubleshooting steps

Screen

Screen works partially. While displaying the UI works fine, adjusting the brightness doesn't work.

Battery

sm5703 charger driver is WIP, so the charging is not controlled and there is no charging status reporting.

USB OTG

Another sm5703 charger driver issue. It's currently unable to power up a usb device in mainline. Try a hub with external power supply.

Accelerometer

lis2hh12 accelerometer is not so stable for auto screen rotation, which suggests you to use fixed portrait or landscape mode.

GPS

No idea how to test yet.

Touch keys

The interrupts/input events are not handled properly and it needs a patched driver. See Tm2-touchkey.

NFC

The PN547 NFC chip uses a pad supply voltage (pvdd), which needs a patched driver.

Proximity Sensor

The driver for cm36672p proximity sensor is not available.
