How to enter flash mode

Power off the device, hold down the Power and the Volume Up key for 1-2 seconds. Some devices you may need to hold down the Power and the Volume Down key instead.

For unlocking the bootloader see Bootloader#Motorola.

There is some exploit, but it caused bootloops on this particular model according to a community report: https://github.com/alephsecurity/initroot

Mainline Installation

Follow the Installation_guide.

Download lk2nd from https://github.com/msm8916-mainline/lk2nd and flash it to the device. Make sure lk2nd is active before flashing postmarketos kernel.

Follow Qualcomm_Snapdragon_410/412_(MSM8916)#Installation.

Note: A recent (edge, alpine-release 3.19_alpha20230901) attempt to install via sideloading a recovery zip image fails (#1877, not specific to osprey, but rather to MSM8916). The end of pmos.log file shows:

+ chroot /tmp/postmarketos/chroot /bin/busybox --install /bin
chroot: can't execute '/bin/busybox': No such file or directory

Similarly, an attempt to manually flash via fastboot (lk2nd 0.15.0) fails with the error message

unable to mount root partition

  • Xfce4
