Screen

For some reason using msm-fb-refresher makes the screen incredibly dim on Weston. In order for the screen to work, this package shouldn't be installed(if you explicitly didn't you don't need to worry about it) and you need to follow Troubleshooting:display#Screen_doesn.27t_refresh everytime you boot up your device. This is why the display is marked as partial.

How to enter flash mode

1. The easiest way is to turn off your phone and press the Power button and the Volume Up button at the same time.

Installation

1.The Installation guide should cover everything. Make sure to remove the encryption from the userdata partition if you're going to use it as rootfs(you can use Format Data from TWRP if you want)!


Mainline

  • Wifi
  • Only 2.4GHz networks.
  • USB networking
  • Works.
  • Screen
  • Works, including backlight(only locally though; the changes will be pushed once we reach at least 5.10-rc1 since in there will be a patch for the bl driver in upstream).
  • Audio
  • Currently being worked on.
  • Bluetooth
  • Not tested, but should work OOB.

Assume everything else to not work.

Installation:

1. Install lk2nd. You'll need to clone msm8953-mainline/lk2nd. Follow the instructions for building, and flash build-msm8953-secondary/lk2nd.img like you would with any boot image.

2. Boot into it. While the "Bootloader is unlocked" warning appears, press Volume Down. A Tux logo and a screen should appear.

3. Do the installation steps you would find at Installation guide. Flash all the necessary stuff(make sure to install the kernel inside lk2nd!) .

4. Select "START" in lk2nd, and let your device do it's thing. Hopefully a SSH connection will get open eventually :)
