How to enter flash mode

Installation

The mainline kernel can only be booted through U-Boot, not directly with the Samsung bootloader. U-Boot is installed as intermediate bootloader on the boot partition, so it does not replace the Samsung bootloader entirely.

Boot into Download Mode using Power + Volume Down + Home and follow the instructions at ST-Ericsson_NovaThor_U8500#U-Boot to install U-Boot.

Finally, just follow the Installation guide.
