How to enter flash mode

  1. Turn off the device
  2. Press Power+Volume Down to enter fastboot

Installation

CAUTION: Flashing any image with antirollback index lower than 4 (Android 8 or lower, for example) could potentially brick your device due to Anti-rollback protection. See a related XDA Developers post for more information.

Here's how to boot pmOS via fastboot:

  1. Install to a SD card with pmbootstrap install --sdcard=/dev/sdX
  2. Insert the SD card into the device
  3. Connect the device to your PC
  4. Enter the fastboot mode
  5. In order to boot an image with fastboot, an 8-Kb image of zeros should be flashed to the antirbpass partition every time we want to use pmbootstrap flasher boot or fastboot boot. Create an image if you haven't done that already:
    $ dd if=/dev/zero of=dummy.img bs=8K count=1
    
  6. Flash the freshly created dummy.img to the antirbpass partition:
    $ fastboot flash antirbpass dummy.img
    
  7. Finally, boot pmOS:
    $ pmbootstrap flasher boot
