How to enter flash mode

See instructions for HTC_One_V_(htc-primou). They're the same for this device. Note that you may need to disable "fast boot" (not to be confused with fastboot) in settings.

Installation

See instructions for HTC_One_V_(htc-primou). They're the same for this device.

Notes

Kernel

GCC 10

I initially attempted to build the kernel with GCC 10. This worked fine, however the phone would immediately reboot after booting the kernel, so I switched to GCC 6 which after some additional tweaks got me into Xfce.

Issues

Device reboots by itself after a few minutes. Probably some watchdog that needs to be fed.

User Interfaces

I initially attempted to start Weston. It did not start. Xfce4 started just fine, however note that it takes a while to start and the screen will turn black twice.
