What works

  • Xfce4 (recommended) including touch
  • WiFi using the firmware-samsung-i9305 - but: NetworkManager does not work, see https://github.com/postmarketOS/pmbootstrap/issues/1461
  • Bluetooth works partially as described for the Galaxy SIII but the device is /dev/ttySAC0
  • Audio, see Audio#WM1811 for more instructions. Both an pre-configured saved state as well as the ucm profiles are included.
  • charging-sdl

What does not work

  • S-pen
  • MHL
  • Bluetooth pairing with bluez5 (bluez4 is working, more on that soon)
  • osk-sdl - FDE most likely does not work as some kernel options are missing (can be easily fixed probably if FDE is desired).
  • GPS
  • Camera
  • Sleep etc.
  • poweroff on shutdown (halt) command - make sure you really turn the device off or your battery will be totally depleted.

How to enter flash mode

Hold power and volume down simultaneously.

Installation

N5110 can be chosen as a device during the init, seeing how the hardware is identical(the difference is that n5110 is the wi-fi version, this would mean that the modem would not work)


Mainline Kernel

A family of boards also known by the codename "Midas" recently got mainline kernel support in pmOS with this patch.

While the n5100 is not part of the Midas family, it is part of a very near relative, the Kona family, which uses the same Exynos4412 SoC as the Midas family. You can view a list of Kona family boards here.
