How to enter flash mode

For booting into fastboot, turn off the phone, hold volume down and plug in the USB cable.

Installation

Unlock the bootloader according to the official instructions.

UBports Installer

You can use UBports Installer v0.9.8 (or later) to flash a prebuilt image of postmarketOS onto your Fairphone 4. Just select postmarketOS in the OS selection and choose the desired UI and lean back!

Manually

You need to erase the dtbo partition for the current slot with fastboot erase dtbo, otherwise the device will not boot.

Hint You can always restore the original dtbo partition by downloading and extracting the dtbo.img from the factory package and then flashing it via fastboot flash dtbo <path/to/dtbo.img>. This works similar for the boot partition.

The rest of the installation is standard, but because the device contains A/B slots, you must watch out for the correct slot being active.

Note The device does not contain a system as you might be used to, it contains one super partition which contains system/system_ext/product/vendor/odm partitions, in _a and _b variant each. This concept is called Dynamic Partitions.

You have a few possibilities to flash the postmarketOS rootfs:

  • userdata partition (> 100 GB space): pmbootstrap flasher flash_rootfs --partition userdata
  • super partition (6 GB space): pmbootstrap flasher flash_rootfs --partition super
  • Subpartition of super using fastbootd.
  • SD card: pmbootstrap install --sdcard /dev/$blk_dev

See also Dual Booting if you want to run postmarketOS in parallel with another operating system.

SD card notes

In case you want to flash to SD card on a different computer, do the following:

1. Edit $(pmbootstrap config aports)/device/community/device-fairphone-fp4/deviceinfo and change the value of deviceinfo_rootfs_image_sector_size to 512 (the SD card sector size)

2. Run pmbootstrap install --no-sparse (we do not need a sparse image for the SD card)

3. Copy the newly created $(pmbootstrap config work)/chroot_native/home/pmos/rootfs/fairphone-fp4.img to the other computer and flash it there with your preferred flashing tool.
