Unlocking the bootloader

Please visit the Motorola website for instructions. You will need a valid email address and working fastboot (driver installation needed for Windows and macOS, works out of the box on Linux). The Windows instructions works as written on Linux.

How to enter flash mode

Hold down Power + Volume Down while booting to enter Flash Mode.

Installation

I have tested flashing boot.img with an sdcard rootfs and this seems to work fine.

Modem Setup (same as for motorola-harpia so far)

Content below copied from https://wiki.postmarketos.org/wiki/Moto_G4_Play_(motorola-harpia).

I used these steps to configure and test SMS. It sort of worked I think. Need to do more testing.

Wifi

Configure your kernel and enable the prima wifi staging driver

$ pmbootstrap menuconfig motorola-harpia
$ pmbootstrap build linux-motorola-harpia

On the device

# apk add wcnss-wlan
# /etc/init.d/wcnss-wlan start

Bluetooth (Mainline)

Using unrznbl's tree. bluetoothctl detects controller and pairing works. Still needs some testing to see if it is stable.

Battery (Mainline)

Battery fuel gauge is supported, but fan54046 charging chip isn't. It does still charge but it dosen't indicate that it is charging.

USB OTG (Mainline)

The internal USB hub shows up, but it dosen't detect any USB devices.

Firmware {Wifi/Modem}

The firmware is now properly packaged since pmaports!1947

Modem

Make the necesary links for rmtfs

# cd /boot
# ln -s /dev/disk/by-partlabel/modemst1 modem_fs1
# ln -s /dev/disk/by-partlabel/modemst2 modem_fs2
# ln -s /dev/disk/by-partlabel/fsg modem_fsg

Install necessary software

# apk add msm-modem-downstream rmtfs libsmdpkt_wrapper libqipcrtr4msmipc ofono

Start the wcnss-wlan service to initialize the wifi card (helps the modem?)

# /etc/init.d/wcnss-wlan start

Start a tmux for multiple windows tmux

Start rmtfs on a terminal

export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/preload/libqipcrtr4msmipc.so
rmtfs -v

Start ofonod on another terminal

$ export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/preload/libsmdpkt_wrapper.so
$ ofonod -d -n

Send an SMS!

$ export PHONE_NUMBER="<number to send sms to ex: 1234567890>"
$ sudo dbus-send --print-reply --system --dest=org.ofono /gobi_0 org.ofono.Modem.SetProperty string:"Powered" variant:boolean:"true"
$ sudo dbus-send --print-reply --system --dest=org.ofono /gobi_0 org.ofono.Modem.GetProperties
$ sudo dbus-send --print-reply --system --dest=org.ofono /gobi_0 org.ofono.Modem.SetProperty string:"Online" variant:boolean:"true"
$ sudo dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=org.ofono /gobi_0 org.ofono.MessageManager.SendMessage string:"$PHONE_NUMBER" string:"Hello world! -postmarketOS"

Receive SMS like this (might be spammy if you have other DBus apps):

$ sudo dbus-monitor
