While that device is Very similar to the Galaxy Note II (N7100), some peripherals are wired differently on the two boards, and the two boards have different cellular modems.
Replicant 6.0¶To get partially supported by Replicant 6.0 we can either:
- validate that the device boots with the N7100 images. The downside is that the images would have support for libsamsung-ipc that could probably be disabled after boot, but it would make the installation instructions more complicated than they should be.
- Building images for it without libsamsung-ipc. That would be better. Ideally we could also look if the ofono ril has some support for its modem and the one for the Galaxy SIII 4G (I9305).
For Replicant 9¶
As it uses the same dts as the N7100, it might just be possible to make an image without modem support for it, however the n7100 also need to be added in Replicant 9, which requires to port (and upstream!) some display drivers.
- TODO: Verify if we can install Replicant it
- TODO: Verify if we also have the same compass calibration than with the Galaxy Note 2 (N7100) (GalaxyNote2N7100CompassCalibration)
- See the the UART page for the information on how to get a very early boot console.
