Status

Items marked with FIX have a known fix and will be included in next release.

  • Jolla Store works.
  • Double tap to wake does not work. (Probably not supported by firmware)
  • Please report if there are still random failures of finding resolutions for secondary camera by camera module detection service during installation or update.
    • To solve the issue remove /etc/droid-cameradetect-module-main.conf and /etc/droid-cameradetect-module-front.conf and run "systemctl restart droid-cameradetect"
    • Repeat the previous instruction until both cameras work (configuration is at /etc/dconf/db/vendor.d/jolla-camera-hw.txt and the validity of resolutions for secondary camera can be checked also manually)

Requirements for installation

Installation steps


  • If instead you want to use Sailfish OS installation zip, all data in Sailfish OS will be removed, so backup everything you might need.
  • Calibrate proximity sensor in Android before installing Sailfish OS.
  • Requires Fairphone Opensource OS 18.04 https://storage.googleapis.com/fairphone-updates/6cb84543-9614-425d-9ab4-9e80baca2b8f/fp2-sibon-18.04.1-manual.zip (or Fairphone OS 18.04), not tested on other releases.
  • Install the required Android version (if not installed already) using fastboot and the steps below.
    • Extract filesystem images from Android zip on your computer.
    • Enter fastboot mode on your phone by turning off device, when device is powered down press and hold volume down button and then plug USB cable.
    • Open a terminal on your computer and go to the folder where you extracted the file system images.
    • Check that the device is detected with fastboot devices
    • ./flash.sh
    • Flash script will automatically reboot the device but you don't need to boot to Android, you can instead shutdown the device and then boot to TWRP for Sailfish OS installation.
  • Sailfish OS installation
    • Copy the downloaded Sailfish OS zip to sdcard or to somewhere outside sailfish rootfs in userdata partition
    • Boot to TWRP recovery (when device is powered down press and hold volume up button and power buttons until TWRP starts), disable Zip file signature verification and install Sailfish OS zip over Android (without erasing system partition).
    • Reboot

Over-the-Air updates (OTA)

  • Backup of Sailfish OS user files to a sdcard or to another device is strongly encouraged before updating Sailfish OS.
  • You can be on any Sailfish OS version you have installed before.
  • IMPORTANT! If you are updating from alpha4 or earlier version you will need to manually flash system.img from Fairphone Opensource OS 18.04 fastboot image to system partition using fastboot after updating Sailfish OS.
    • Check previous chapter for instructions how to use fastboot.
    • fastboot flash system system.img
    • Also the other partitions (except boot partition) can be flashed (rpm, sbl1, tz, splash and aboot) can be flashed. Check flash.sh file for details.
  • IMPORTANT! If you are updating from any older release (beta4 or earlier) you can now flash modem partition from 18.04 Fairphone Open OS release by extracting the fastboot images from the manual installation zip as described in installation instructions above.
    • Check previous chapter for instructions how to use fastboot.
    • fastboot flash modem NON-HLOS.bin
  • Open shell with normal nemo user preferrably via ssh.
  • Updating Sailfish OS via commandline:
  • Updating from 2.0.5.6 (alpha3) or newer releases
ssu release 3.2.0.12

ssu lr
# Check the output that you have repos adaptation-community and adaptation-community-common
# if either of those is missing run these commands

# You may have many of OpenRepos enabled. It's recommended to disable them, even
# though version --dup will do its best-effort to isolate repositories:
