Unlocking the bootloader

Devices with a serial number containing VM190 or higher and unpatched devices with FireOS 6.2.8.0 or higher cannot be unlocked. If you have a compatible device follow this guide.

How to enter recovery mode

The Stick will detect if an USB OTG adapter is plugged in at bootup, so to boot into TWRP plug a mouse into the OTG adapter and click cancel at the 5 second countdown.

Installation

Note Note: The kernel only successfully compiles in armv7-mode, although aarch64 is supported by the SoC.

Follow the installation guide and create a recovery zip, then export the zip using $ pmbootstrap export and copy it onto a USB drive. Boot the Stick into recovery mode and install the zip from USB drive by going to "Install", "Select storage" and select the last storage device. When plugging in a USB drive/selecting storage the device may freeze up, so only insert the USB drive when already booted in TWRP.
