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.

Screen

Screen works partially. While displaying the UI works fine, adjusting the brightness doesn't work.

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. 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.

Touch keys

Needs a patched driver. See Tm2-touchkey.

NFC

The PN547 NFC chip uses a pad supply voltage (pvdd), which needs a patched driver.

Audio

The headphone microphone and buttons are probably broken. Trying to fix them.

Proximity Sensor

The driver for cm36672p proximity sensor is not available. There is another grip sensor sx9310 but the interrupts doesn't work properly either.
