When installing, I found it easiest to sideload a ZIP via ClockworkMod Recovery.

  1. Build a suitable postmarketOS recovery image:
    $ ./ init # samsung-manta
    $ ./ install --no-fde --android-recovery-zip
  2. Boot the device in to recovery, by toggling to "RECOVERY MODE" using the volume rocker.
  3. Select "INSTALL ZIP" and then "SIDELOAD ZIP FROM ADB"
  4. Run the standard sideload command from pmbootstrap:
    ./ flasher --method adb sideload

The device will take roughly 60 seconds to boot to the Weston environment.
