{{note|If you get a "no space left on device" error, please report in {{githubissue|928}}.}}
Create checksums and build the device package once to make sure it doesn't contain errors at this point (we didn't do that earlier, because <code>pmbootstrap</code> would have complained about the invalid <code>pkgver</code> of the kernel package):
In case your system partition is too small for the generated image (e.g. because you chose Plasma Mobile as UI), it is possible to flash to another partition as well. Just be sure to erase any previous installations of postmarketOS in other partitions, because the init script will start with the first one that it encounters. (To delete a previous version either use <code>dd</code> or simply install the known working OS, e.g. Android, on it). Using multiple partitions with LVM is planned ({{githubissue|60}}).
