What does not work

How to enter flash mode
Hold power and volume down simultaneously.
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).
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.
