- Weston including touch

firmware-samsung-i9305- but: NetworkManager does not work, see https://github.com/postmarketOS/pmbootstrap/issues/1461
- Bluetooth works partially as described for the Galaxy SIII but the device is
- 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 - FDE most likely does not work as some kernel options are missing (can be easily fixed probably if FDE is desired).
- 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.
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. Replicant is also interested in mainlining this device and replacing the bootloader with u-boot and would like to collaborate with us .
