What works

  • It boots
  • SSH through USB

What does not work

  • Restart after ~2 minutes 22 seconds (probably SMSM_RESET in SMS module)
  • Red screen error
  • No input (keys and screen)
  • No charging with turned off phone (is it even supported?)

To do

  • Fixing 2:22 restarts is a priority
    • the first thing that comes to my head is checking defconfig
    • second one is adding proprietary firmware.
  • Red screen error (kernel patch or weston config workaround)
  • Touch screen input, /dev/input/event1 should be screen, still nothing is working, including weston-calibrate
