How to enter flash mode

Turn off device; hold VolUp+VolDn; plug in USB; wait until screen turns on, release buttons; press VolUp to select Download.

Installation

No process working yet. Also, if you follow this process, you will probably effectively brick your device and render the filesystem non-writeable.

  • Download TWRP
  • Install TWRP with patched heimdall.
  • Back up existing system, boot, vendor partitions.

Why everything broken

  • reserved-gpio-ranges
  • reserved memory
  • dead battery
  • dm-verity?
  • Display Stream Compression ?
