How to enter flash mode

  • Recovery: Power on the device with both Power and Volume Down buttons.
  • Stock fastboot: Power on the device with both Power and Volume Up buttons. You only need this to install lk2nd.
  • lk2nd Fastboot: Power on the device. After it vibrates/the display shows up, hold Volume Down.
Note Note: Pressing the keys too early will cause the stock bootloader to handle the key combination. You will end up in the wrong Fastboot interface.

WLAN/BT module does not work?

Icon WARNING: It worked on author's device but be careful to use it on your own.

If your device does not have wlan module (not shown in ifconfig, for example), then your dmesg output probably contains something like:

qcom-wcnss-pil a204000.remoteproc: error -22 initializing firmware wcnss.mdt

remoteproc remoteproc1: Failed to load program segments: -22

It means that firmware files, that are on your device (/dev/mmcblk0p39), different with files required. It can be fixed easily:

  • unmount /lib/firmware/msm-firmware-loader/mnt/modem
  • unmount /lib/firmware/msm-firmware-loader
  • mount /dev/mmcblk0p39 to /mnt (for example)
  • backup your /mnt/image/wcnss.* because we will overwrite it
  • copy firmware files from here (files I found through browsing...) to your /mnt/image

So, now you have different firmware files. After rebooting, if everything is OK, you will have working WiFi and BT.

Installation

  1. Install lk2nd (alternative bootloader that provides a standard fastboot interface)
  2. Follow Qualcomm_Snapdragon_410/412_(MSM8916)#Installation.
