- Currently, Heimdall seems to be unable to flash the device's
SYSTEMpartition, so we can't do the entire install using just
udevadm triggercauses a complete system freeze and eventual reboot. If you comment out that line in
start_weston.shand replace it by
udevadm trigger --attr-match=name=sec_touchscreen, the touch screen should work.
Preparing for install
First, download the TWRP recovery ROM. You'll need both the
.img.tar and the
.img file. First, extract the tar file to obtain
recovery.img. Then, put your phone in flash mode and flash using Heimdall:
$ heimdall flash --RECOVERY recovery.img --BOOT twrp-3.1.1-1-kminilte.img

Follow the android-recovery-zip steps, substituting

apk add lddtree in the chroot environment and try again.

device-mapper: reload ioctl on failed: No such file or directory Failed to setup dm-crypt key mapping for device /dev/block/mmcblk0p18. Check that kernel supports aes-xts-plain64 cipher (check syslog for more info).
You can try to reinstall with a different cipher, by editing
install_options and changing the

CIPHER="aes-cbc-plain64", re-zipping and using
adb sideload again.
This can be done via
./pmbootstrap.py flasher flash_kernel
