How to enter flash mode

Turn off, then hold down volume down, home key, and press the power button at the same time. See this video

Installation

No port at the moment. Sadly, this 32-bit Exynos has zero mainline support at the moment. Since it was only used on Alpha, A7 and Meizu MX4 Pro, it is quite unlikely that a mainline port will see the light soon.
