For some reason, enabling 802.11n WiFi makes the connection slow and unreliable and causes most downloads to stall. As a workaround, 802.11n support has been disabled. Somebody also had this issue on a Xiaomi Redmi 5 (xiaomi-rosy). (Citation needed)
EDL mode can be entered by holding theand keys while plugging in or turning on the phone.
Fastboot mode can be entered by holding thekey while plugging in or turning on (but not rebooting!) the phone.
Unfortunately, there is no publicly available EDL loader, and the bootloader is locked. However, these restrictions can be temporarily bypassed using a secret
fastboot oem sudo command. To boot custom software, you also need to flash a custom
vbmeta image and
avb_custom_key, otherwise the device will refuse to boot.
The stock bootloader write-protects most partitions when booting from the
boot partition, so it is recommended to use the
recovery partition for booting postmarketOS.
With these instructions, you can have KaiOS and postmarketOS dual boot, with pmOS on a microSD card. This guide assumes you have flashed the postmarketOS image into a microSD and inserted it into the device.
- Clone the weeknd-toolbox repo
touch Image.gz-dtbto avoid building Linux
arm-none-eabi-gcc(On Debian and Ubuntu:
apt install gcc-arm-none-eabi)
- In the weeknd-toolbox directory do
- Enter fastboot mode
fastboot oem sudo
fastboot flash avb_custom_key pkmd.bin
fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
fastboot flash recovery lk2nd.img
- Hold Volume Up key
- Flash the boot image:
fastboot flash recovery boot.img
- Now to boot pmOS from microSD, reboot while holding the Volume Up key, release the key as soon as the warning appears and again hold it as soon as it disappears.
