What works

  • kernel booting! (maximum-attention hook)

What doesn't work

  • usb networking, debug-shell/initramfs hook usb connection
  • Everything else (untested)
  • Flashing (maybe works for people not using VirtualBox for pmbootstrap?)

  • Recovery: Hold PWR+HOME during boot.
  • RAMDUMP: Hold PWR+HOME+VOLUP during boot.

Installation

WORK IN PROGRESS, ATTEMPT AT OWN RISK

There are likely better ways to do this, but this is all I could get working.

  1. Install rootfs to an sd card using `pmbootstrap install --sdcard=/dev/mmcblk0`
  2. On a Windows PC, Download Odin Multi Downloader v4.38
  3. Run pmbootstrap export --odin
  4. Grab boot.img-samsung-s5830 from /tmp/postmarketOS-export. Rename it to boot.img, then use 7zip to compress it into a .tar archive
  5. In Odin, load Cooper_v1.0.ops and select your boot.tar as the BOOT image. Then press start.

Notes
