A WONDERFUL NON WORKING LINUX DISTRO THAT DOESNT EVEN TRY TO BOOT

ANYWAYS TO FLASH IT:​

First, flash TWRP or OrangeFox​

Secondly, flash Astrako's Partitioner Script from here https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...epartition-script-for-vendor-support.4143541/ . What this does is it makes your system partition to 4GB, which is good for PostMarketOS. Flash this and reboot to recovery. WARNING: ALL DATA WILL BE GONE​

Thirdly, download PostMarketOS from the links given below and flash it via PBRP. it is automatic and please do NOT opt in for Full Disk Encryption as it will break the phone.​

Fourth, reboot and enjoy! For now this only has a terminal with a touch keyboard. The login is `user` with the password `12345`.​

If it works for you or doesn't PLEASE let me know and please do note that this is alpha build software and you should not use it as a daily driver or expect your phone to be stable. Thank you.​

I am working on a pmOS port to G610F. Currently there is a port for the J710F (https://wiki.postmarketos.org/wiki/Samsung_Galaxy_J7_(2016)). This new port will be based on that. Due to me breaking my grandma's phone, she actually has the G610F, also yes she is outstation so I don't have the phone, so, basically I need testers for the new port. Every single development enhancements, milestones and builds will be provided here. As of now, I have the source at https://github.com/LinuxForExynos/pmos-samsung-on7xelte. If you have any suggestions or are interesting in developing or testing, please reply to this thread or hit me a dm at Otus9051#5971 in discord. This project won't be possible without you. Also, I am developing Halium for it too, so this thread will also have this too.

Requirements for testing:
Knowledge with Linux (atleast upto knowing how to cd or cp, the more the better)
Time (a lot)
My PBRP build (https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...-pitch-black-recovery-project-v3-1-0.4287985/) [actually any twrp build but this one has a better terminal ui and looks cool]
A G610F, with my pbrp

Requirements for development:
why am i putting this but anyways
Knowledge with Alpine Linux and Linux Kernels
Knowledge with DTBs and stuff and android ofc
A laptop/pc with Linux (not wsl) and atleast 6gb ram and a dual core processor

Can confirm, doesn't boot, stuck at samsung splash screen, charging doesn't show percentage so maybe kernel problems.

Yeah, I and zpunout are working on it. Infact, WE HAVE NO LEADS LOL so uh yeah i have to do some digging i guess... The biggest problem is that I don't have the device itself right now so it makes it a bit difficult to work and apply patches. My current workflow is Patch > Build > Upload > Test > Repeat
And uploading takes a long time where I live like a 200MB file takes 10mins to upload... Yeah...
