What works

  • Display
  • Weston
  • Touchscreen
  • USB
  • Wifi (if started up manually, there's still some problems on boot)
  • FDE w/ osk-sdl

What does not work

  • RIL (hasn't been setup yet, but Replicant got it going on the android side so it should be possible.)
  • 2D + 3D acceleration (so most UIs slow down to a crawl, such as plasma-mobile.)

To test/do

  • Audio
  • Graphics Acceleration
  • GPS/Compass/Sensors
  • RIL

How to enter flash mode

Press Power + Volume Up to enter download/odin mode.


This has to be done in two parts:

  • First create an android recovery image of PMOS and flash it using TWRP.
  • Then use the usual heimdall flasher method to install the kernel and initramfs (flash_kernel).

Doing both with one method results in errors in both situations.
