== What is tested and works ==
* The kernel with in-tree built exynos DTBH based image
* USB Networking (you might have to set its MAC address beforehand though)
* SSHand telnet in the initramfs* Wi-fi* All Almost all display environments with software rendering (yes, even plasma mobile works, albeit slowly and with rubbish dpi scaling) * As an aside, wayland based environments currently crash after a few minutes due to an unknown issue.
== Quirks ==
* Exynos (at least modern exynos) has a different dt.img format to Qualcomm devices, requiring a special dtbtool to go along with it. There is one included in the kernel source we have, which should make the dtb automatically. In future, for other It has been packaged as exynos devices (S8 and up come to mind) we should package this as a common tool and treat it in a way similar to qcdt.-dtbtool
* Camera drivers (Samsung FIMC-IS2) (and accompanying flash LED drivers, controlled by a Samsung PMIC) needed to be disabled in the kernel to prevent boot loops.
== To get working ==
* FDE with osk-sdl - Tested and interface works, but crashes and bootloops attempting any decryption
* WiProper working of charging-Fisdl - it comes up, but works awkwardly and doesn't go away without a hard reset* (If possible) 3D acceleration using the binary Mali userspace drivers from ARM, under Halium* Panfrost?support
* Mainlining (should probably help the android community too)
