Install TWRP

  • Press Volume down + home + power to enter Download mode
  • Flash the Recovery
 $ heimdall flash --RECOVERY twrp-3.6.0_9-0-gtaxlwifi.img

To boot into TWRP press Volume up + home + power

Installation

Note Flashing with heimdall gets stuck, so adb sideloading has to be used.

Install from the recovery zip installer

  • Install TWRP on your device
  • Configure the image
Note Weston does not launch, XFCE4 and Plasma-Mobile work
Note If a UI is used the following additional package has to be added during pmbootstrap init msm-fb-refresher
 $ pmbootstrap init
  • Prepare the installation
 $ pmbootstrap install --android-recovery-zip
  • In TWRP go to Advanced->Sideload and flash the image on the tablet
 $ pmbootstrap flasher --method=adb sideload
