What works

  • Display
  • Touchscreen
  • USB network
  • FDE
  • weston
  • osk-sdl
  • WIFI
  • X11

What does not work

  • Camera
  • Most likely everything else

How to enter flash mode

Hold volume down + home + power together, then press volume up to bypass warning.

How to enter recovery mode

Hold volume up + home + power together.

How to connect to wifi

First enable to therface with

sudo ip link set wlan0 up

Then add this to /etc/network/interfaces

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp

Then run

echo 'wpa_supplicant_args="-i wlan0 -D wext"' | sudo tee /etc/conf.d/wpa_supplicant

Then add the ssid and passphrase for the network

wpa_passphrase <SSID> | sudo tee /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

Then restart the services

sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
sudo /etc/init.d/wpa_supplicant restart

Finally check for a connection and enable dhcp

iw wlan0 link
sudo udhcpc -b -i wlan0

If it worked then

ip a

Should show an ip address

About 3D

3D acceleration is possible as seen in linux sunxi

Installation

View Installation guide.

Experience

The best user interface to install is XFCE4. Other ones do lag, or just don't respond. Especially KDE Plasma.
