Installation

Note Note: Even though MSM8916 is capable of aarch64, the firmware of some variants were never updated with aarch64 support. Therefore, this device can only boot mainline on aarch64 at the moment.

lk2nd is a secondary bootloader that provides a standard fastboot interface.

  1. The prebuilt image doesn't have the device included at the meantime. Build lk2nd first.
  2. Boot your phone to bootloader (download) mode by holding Volume Down and Home while powering up.
  3. Follow lk2nd instructions from step 2 to install lk2nd. Basically flash it to boot partition (heimdall flash --BOOT build-lk2nd-msm8916/lk2nd.img)
  4. Follow Qualcomm_Snapdragon_410/412_(MSM8916)#Installation to install postmarketOS.
Note Note: Enter lk2nd fastboot mode by pressing only Volume Down + Power (without Home). Pressing Home additionally will bring you to the Samsung Download mode.

Touchscreen

Imagis IST30XXB Touchscreen driver is WIP [1].

Charging

rt5033-charger driver is not available, so the charging is not controlled and there is no charging status reporting. There is also a forgotten patch[2].

USB OTG

Another rt5033-charger driver issue. It's currently unable to power up a usb device in mainline. Try a hub with external power supply.

Accelerometer

lis2hh12 accelerometer is not so stable for auto screen rotation, which suggests you to use fixed portrait or landscape mode.

Proximity Sensor

No interrupts received from gp2ap002s00f sensor.

TWRP

Touchkey

Touchkey type is unknown, so there is nothing done for it.
