How to enter flash mode

Volume down + power to enter fastboot mode, volume up + power to enter recovery mode.

Installation

Flash LineageOS once, then follow the installation guide.

It is recommended to flash to the userdata partition instead of super:

$ pmbootstrap flasher flash_rootfs --partition userdata

Serial UART

UART TX is below the sub board connector on the left size of a 0402 capacitor. Baud - 115200. For ground you can use the metal shielding.
