How to enter flash mode

Press Power + Volume Up + Home button to boot into recovery mode (i want to recommend using TWRP Recovery)

Installation

Some heimdall-based phones may have this issue: Using standard flashing method, it won't work because system partition is too small. See Troubleshooting: Failed to confirm end of file transfer sequence

Run the following command:

$ pmbootstrap install --android-recovery-zip # Generate flashable zip file
$ pmbootstrap export # Export zip file to /tmp/postmarketOS-export

$ # Copy flashable zip file to your phone
$ cp $(readlink /tmp/postmarketOS-export/pmos-*.zip) /path/to/phone_storage

Note: Make sure your phone have installed TWRP Recovery to flashing your phone

You can also do with sideloading adb from recovery. See Sideload ADB Installation
