Extremely fast pmOS build for the pinephone

Hi folks!
You might think your pinephone is a slow POC device.
Welp! that's true BUT pmOS sxmo is an incredibly smooth OS!
You can check my review here: https://youtu.be/Q6L9K0EW3qg

*How to install?*

# 1. Easy way --

## 1.1 From the computer
Download https://lucasanss.xyz/pine64-pinephone.img
then burn the image to you sdcard*. 
On a linux desktop the fastest way to do so is to download
the image while uncompressing it while writting the decompressed
output on your device.
if your sdcard is `/dev/mmcblk0` run: 
`curl https://lucasanss.xyz/pine64-pinephone.img.zst | zstdcat > /dev/mmcblk0`
if you want to check the writting progress:
`curl https://lucasanss.xyz/pine64-pinephone.img.zst | zstdcat | dd of=/dev/mmcblk0 status=progress`
Then boot 

## 1.2 From your phone

- Boot from your internal storage, /!\ -- important!
- Open up a terminal, run**:
  `sudo su`
  `curl https://lucasanss.xyz/pine64-pinephone.img > /dev/mmcblk0`
  /dev/mmcblk0 is the default partition for your external sdcard.

## 1.1 credentials
Default login : pine
Default password: enip

# 2. The hard way
Read the wiki https://wiki.postmarketos.org/wiki/PINE6...pinephone)
Follow the `pmbootstrap` instructions.

# 3. Important notes
READ the user instructions: https://git.sr.ht/~mil/sxmo-docs/tree/ma...ERGUIDE.md
Sxmo is easy to use but there is a certain learning curve.
For example by default the modem is disabled. While you'll
be able to make phone calls and receive sms, you'll can't 
receive any. So you'll need to enable it via the menu.

---
* If you use windows, I'd suggest using `rufus` in dd mode, or etcher.
Nonetheless, I haven't tested burning the image on windows

** Make sure curl is installed and that you have a reliable internet.
If download fails restart. Otherwise download the image and flash it
with `wget` and `dd`:
`wget https://lucasanss.xyz/pine64-pinephone.img`
if download succedeed:
`sudo dd < pine64-pinephone.img > /dev/mmcblk0`
yes you can use “<” and “>” instead of “if=” and “of=”
