Enter this command:

Thank you so much!
So to resume it, we have now full fastboot and adb working on system files, apps needing root will work and of course we can finally play with framework theming!
UOT kitchen I am back :D
But last thing: the rom included is UK or global?

Does it wipe your handset/do you have to perform a factory reset after flashing?

Also, can someone explain in a little more detail exactly how you go about flashing using fastboot?


Sorry, I know Bin4ry said he'd improve on the instructions later but I kinda can't wait :(
