  • Kernel compilation (

What does not work

  • Everything else

How to enter flash mode

  • While holding Volume down, press and hold Power for 5-10 seconds. There are no visual cues when fastboot loads.

Recovery mode

  • While holding Volume up, press and hold Power button until recovery options appear.


  • Install system partition to SD card pmbootstrap install --no-fde --sdcard=/dev/sd?
  • Boot kernel using pmbootstrap flasher boot


  • Current assumption is that CPU is not supported by armhf architecture, so it won't boot [1]
  • boot.img that can be booted using fastboot boot command is the one from stock device image. CyanogenMod boot.img fails to boot, but works when flashed to device.
