== How to enter flash mode ==
I have as yet been '''unable to find a way to ''directly'' enter fastboot''' on this device, nor have I been able to find any hint of custom Android ROM / custom recovery development for this or info on sites like XDA-Developers.
 
However, one is able to reboot into the bootloader from a running Android system through ADB by running `adb reboot-bootloader` on one's host system.
== Installation ==
In theory you should be able to directly install onto the device, but due to the aforementioned difficulties getting into fastboot I have not tried this. All of my testing has been undertaken by installing onto an SD card (<code>pmbootstrap install --sdcard [device]</code>) and directly booting the kernel using <code>pmbootstrap flasher boot</code>.
<!-- add more sections below as necessary, e.g. WiFi, photos, ... -->
 
== Bootloader unlocking ==
 
I was able to unlock the bootloader on my device with a simple <code>fastboot oem unlock</code>, although I did not test if this works if the device is still carrier locked (in the UK, these devices were mainly sold cheaply -- and carrier locked -- by EE and O2; I was able to obtain a carrier unlock code for my device for under £1 from an eBay seller as EE is slow and charges £9 at time of writing).
