Current porting status
Successfully unlocked bootloader using WPInternals 2.9. I have copied all files from the EFIESP, MainOS, and Data partitions when the phone was booted in Mass Storage Mode, and will analyse them to find how to best install Linux on the phone. If EFI works the same way as it does for desktops, then that could be an option.
I have not had luck putting Linux on the phone yet. When I have time sometime soon I will try to tinker around with it a bit more.
Refer to the Lumia 640 wiki page for a partially working Lumia msm8x26 kernel and instructions (it should also apply to 630, as it uses msm8226).
- Microsoft Windows 8-10 with 10+ GB free space (virtual machines don't work!)
Unlocking the bootloader
Information on how to unlock the bootloader will be added soon.
