How to enter flash mode
With device powered off, hold [VOLUME +] and plug USB cable in. Device's LED will turn blue, meaning it has entered fastboot mode.
Kernel currently does not boot up. The simplest method to see dmesg messages:
- boot a postmarketOS image (pmbootstrap flasher boot)
- disconnect the USB cable as soon as the boot process starts (e.g. when Sony logo appears)
- keep holding [VOLUME -] to start the recovery
- in recovery, start terminal and run 'cat /sys/fs/pstore/console-ramoops'
