This will build the default output for your Razer Phone 2.

The device will need to be booted in its bootloader, or
The boot image can be installed using the following command, assuming it was
built using the previous command.
If you have a system image (
system.img) built, you can use
flash it to the device. Note that it might be too big to fit over the
partition. In such case, it can be flashed on the
This will erase everything on the partition. Additionally, the
common backups methods, e.g. TWRP, will not backup the

The video drivers from the vendor do not support being used with the classic framebuffer.
Only DRM (Direct Rendering Manager) is supported.
A workaround, for the time being, is to use
simplefb. Though when the device
boots in the default system, the
simplefb framebuffer stops working. It is
suspected that it is the video drivers switching the display to HDR that are
causing this issue.
A workaround to help with this workaround has been implemented. When booted in the default system, the early init will reboot to recovery. In recovery mode the kernel does not exhibit this issue.
The solution to this problem will be to properly support DRM-only workflows.
Another avenue for solving this is to fix the fbdev emulation driver for the Qualcomm vendor tree.
Yet another is to explore using mainline. Though it is unknown if the dual-DSI display, for which the vendor driver is unique, would work well with the generic code working with other SDM845 devices.
