What does not work

  • Anything

What is not properly tested\or doesn't confirmed to work

  • Booting (stuck at bootloader logo, boots in TWRP successfully, backlight doesn't change)

How to enter flash mode

1. Hold Volume Down + Home + Power buttons for 6 seconds

2. Phone will display this warning. Pres Volume Up button to continue

3. If anything is right, then phone will display this screen.


There are no ready releases, so you need to build your own pmOS image (it's not that long)


You should to:

1. Install Git and Python

2. Clone my pmbootstrap fork (warning: it's very old) (gone forever from GitHub)

3. Change directory to your newly cloned repository

4. Follow the official build guide


No photos of device booting postmarketOS
