After doing a bit more searching, i acknowledge I'm in 'unsupported use' territory. I have no expectations of help :). Just hopeful. I have checked out postmarket and it looks less mature. I suppose I can try Kali, as it should have otg/modules support, just a lot of hacking tools I have no use for, and doubtful camera and other things work out of box
Attempting to compile kernel with config_modules=y and seeing if it's just as simple as that. First time build is slow.
Anyway, appreciate any tips.
