Installation

Note This device port has not been tested! If you try it out, please file any issues you encounter on the pmaports issue tracker and update this wiki page to reflect the actual status of the device. Thanks!

The mainline kernel can only be booted through U-Boot, not directly with the Samsung bootloader. U-Boot is installed as intermediate bootloader on the boot partition, so it does not replace the Samsung bootloader entirely.

Boot into Download Mode using Power + Volume Down + Home and follow the the NovaThor U8500 U-Boot installation instructions to install U-Boot.

Finally, just follow the Installation guide.
