Installation

Use pmbootstrap install --sdcard=/dev/sdX to perform an SD card install (install to MTD /system may not work). Also, use `pmbootstrap flasher flash_kernel` to flash the initfs using Heimdall (ensure your device is in Download mode VolDown + Home + Power)

Wi-Fi

This device has a wl1271 chip from TI. To use it, you need to install a non-free firmware linux-firmware-ti-connectivity

apk add linux-firmware-ti-connectivity
modprobe -r wl12xx_sdio && modprobe wl12xx_sdio

ifconfig wlan0 up

iw wlan0 set type managed

wpa_supplicant -u -Dnl80211 -B -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -iwlan0

udhcpc -b -i wlan0

Display

To adjust brightness:

# # Replace $VAL with a value from 0 to 255:
# echo $VAL > /sys/class/backlight/omap_bl/brightness

Keyboard Backlight

To enable, and turn off the keyboard backlight, insert instead of $ VAL 0 or 1:
echo $VAL >> /sys/class/leds/button-backlight/brightness


Mainlining

It is possible, and the TI OMAP 3630 SoC is supported by the mainline (for example, nokia n9 and n950) But for this device you need to port it. Judging by my research, many drivers are already in the mainline kernel.
