Device info

Additional info

Flash system

Right now flashing the system with fastboot fails with the FAILED (remote: Unknown chunk type) error.

As a workaround it's possible to write the system partition using netcat.

The procedure is explained here => https://github.com/postmarketOS/pmbootstrap/issues/456

The partition to use in step 5 is
/dev/mmcblk0p23

Wifi

In order to start the wifi you have to load the kernel module and bring the interface up with the following commands:

sudo modprobe wlan
sudo ifconfig wlan0 up

Setup WiFi with iproute2
