How to enter flash mode

No proper flash mode, but kernel can be booted via checkra1n/PongoOS.

First you have to enter DFU mode.

  • Power off your phone and connect it to your computer via USB
  • Hold down Home + Power for 8 seconds
  • Release Power and keep holding Home for another 10 seconds

The screen should stay blank if everything went good.

To enter PongoOS, from where we could load the Linux kernel, run following command on the host machine:

$ ./checkra1n -cpE

PongoOS will start booting and printing messages on the screen.

Installation

There is no official way to boot pmOS yet
