Installation

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

  1. Download lk2nd-msm8916.img from Releases page on Github.
  2. Boot your phone to bootloader (download) mode by holding Volume Down and Home while powering up.
  3. Follow lk2nd instructions to install lk2nd. Basically flash it to boot partition (heimdall flash --BOOT lk2nd-msm8916.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.

Panel

panel-simple is used, and there is no backlight/brightness control support yet. If panel goes sleeping and turns green, press the power button to wake it up.

Touch keys

Needs a patched driver. See Tm2-touchkey.

FDE

It's not possible to unlock with touchscreen at the meantime, but unlocking with a keyboard connected via USB OTG is possible.

Battery

sm5703 charger driver is WIP, so the charging is not controlled and there is no charging status reporting.

USB OTG

Another sm5703 charger driver issue. J5 is currently unable to power up a usb device in mainline. Try a hub with external power supply.

Accelerometer

k2hh 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.

NFC

Only LTE variants e.g. SM-J500FN has NFC. The PN547 NFC chip uses a pad supply voltage (pvdd), which needs a patched driver.
