Adaptations/libhybris/Install SailfishOS for hammerhead
Steps to install
- Install adb and fastboot on your workstation :
- Debian/Ubuntu: apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot
- Fedora: yum install android-tools
- Mageia: urpmi android-tools (included in upcoming relase of Mageia 5).
- OpenSUSE: zypper in android-tools
- Mac OS X: Install Homebrew from http://brew.sh/, then: brew install android-platform-tools
- Windows: See http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Doc:_fastboot_intro for instructions
- Download CyanogenMod 11 snapshot M11 from https://download.cyanogenmod.org/get/jenkins/86435/cm-11-20141008-SNAPSHOT-M11-hammerhead.zip and follow instructions from http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_hammerhead to install the CyanogenMod image.
- Download Sailfish OS for Nexus 5 image from http://images.devaamo.fi/sfe/hammerhead/beta0/sailfishos-hammerhead-release-220.127.116.11-beta0-201510022255.zip and flash it over CyanogenMod.
- Reboot the device and it should boot to Sailfish OS. If the device shows Google logo for 4-5 minutes, do a reboot using power button.
- See below for MultiROM instructions
- If the CyanogenMod links do not work, use The Wayback Machine.
- If you are installing the beta 5 Nexus 5 image, rather than the beta0 one linked above, you will need to use a CyanogenMod 12.1 image rather than the CM11 one. A good, known working version is cm-12.1-20150901-SNAPSHOT-YOG4PAO237-hammerhead.zip.
- This page's instructions will otherwise work fine with the newer beta5 install.
WIP Over-the-Air updates (OTA)
- Open shell with normal nemo user
- You can be on any Sailfish OS version you have installed before
- Ensure that sailfish_latest_(architecture) repo on OBS points to the version you'll OTA to for best results (ping us on IRC if not sure)
Currently available OTA versions:
- for Nexus 4: 18.104.22.168
- for Nexus 5: 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199
- (we're also coding an OTA update checker, sync with mal- at IRC and help with that!)

Download appropriate .zip file:
- For CyanogenMod 10.1 base ROM: N/A
- For CyanogenMod 11.0 base ROM: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hwt3tjceomsfqbx/sfdroid-hammerhead.zip?dl=0
- Source code: https://github.com/krnlyng/sfdroid_renderer
It has been tested against SFOS 184.108.40.206, check for differences in init.rc for other versions before flashing (even though they should change rarely at this point).
- Install this zip via TWRP (used as example here) or CWM:
- MultiROM: via Advanced->Multirom->List Roms->your rom->Flash Zip
- Non-MultiROM: choose to Flash Zip or adb sideload (WARNING! If you ever use
fastboot boot boot.imgto boot to underlying CM, sfdroid will break that! To fix, you need to put back the original libsurfaceflinger.so)
- Reboot (might take longer than usual, screen might become unresponsive for a few seconds)
- Launch sfdroid from the App Grid
Play Android OpenGL Classic Games
devel-su zypper in apkenv
Find a game's APK on the Internet that matches _exact version_ from this list: http://wiki.maemo.org/Apkenv/Game_Compatibility
Once downloaded, perform in Terminal as normal user, e.g.:
You're welcome to help us by writing a small UI app that manages/launches those, or provides .desktop files.
Games tested on Nexus 5 successfully:
Amazing Alex Angry Birds Cut the Rope Fruit Ninja Petals Redux Plants vs. Zombies (no sound, WIP) Rabit Game 2 Super Hexagon World of Goo
To join the effort (or request a game), join #apkenv IRC channel on Freenode
Android Dalvik/Art apps are _not_ supported by apkenv.
Here as example we'll use hammerhead (Nexus 5) instructions. They are similar for other devices.
