What works

  • Weston including touch
  • Xfce4 (recommended) including touch and pen
  • WiFi using the firmware-samsung-i9305
  • Bluetooth works partially as described for the Galaxy SIII but the device is /dev/ttySAC0
  • Audio, see Audio#WM1811 for more instructions. Both an pre-configured saved state as well as the ucm profiles are included.

What does not work

  • Bluetooth pairing with bluez5 (bluez4 is working, more on that soon)
  • osk-sdl, charging-sdl - neither the charging animation nor FDE work. See osk-sdl#78 for details including a possible fix (which needs patching sdl2).
  • GPS
  • Camera
  • Sleep etc.
  • poweroff on shutdown (halt) command - make sure you really turn the device off or your battery will be totally depleted.
  • 3D acceleration (plasma mobile is very slow)

How to enter flash mode

Hold power and volume down simultaneously.

Installation

Flashing of the kernel works with heimdall, installation on the system partition works at least with adb sideload using TWRP (did not try heimdall). Installation on the sdcard should work, too (untested).


Mainline Kernel

There is currently no mainline kernel available but it should be possible to mainline this device. Have a look at Midas on Mainline for work on mainlining very similar devices.
