How to enter flash mode

Upon reboot, press home and volume down.

Installation

Using the pmbootstrap flasher

pmbootstrap flasher flash_kernel
pmbootstrap flasher flash_rootfs

Alternatively, use

pmbootstrap flasher flash_rootfs --partition userdata

to flash the filesystem / to the larger userdata partition (eg. sxmo won't fit into the system partition)

User interfaces

The most usable seems to be sxmo right now. By default, it has cumbersome font settings (and a somewhat incorrect positioning of the xdm login screen). The first can be solved by tweaking the variables dmenu.font, dwm.font, st.font and svkbd.font in the file ~/.Xresources. These values were fairly usable:

dmenu.font:	FiraMono Nerd Font:size=5
dwm.font:	FiraMono Nerd Font:size=5
st.font:	FiraMono Nerd Font:size=5
svkbd.font:	Sans:bold:size=5

To position the xdm login dialog, look at the file /etc/X11/xdm/Xresources. It should contain a line of the form

xlogin*geometry: <width>x<height>+<x>+<y>

The following values seem to have worked fairly well:

xlogin*geometry: 320x300+0+0
