[Update: 2.1.1 discontinued, 2.1.2 coming soon] Sailfish OS 2.1.1 is now available

Update 20/09/2017: We have now decided to discontinue the 2.1.1 update and instead put our focus and resources on the next release which is Sailfish OS 2.1.2 and finalise that. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Thankfully, most of the devices affected by the bug that was in the early access release were fixed and we are in the process of helping the last few problematic cases.

Update 01/09/2017: The update is made unavailable due to a security code bug we found that would be a potential problem for some of our users. More updates will follow.

Update 29/08/2017: Sailfish OS 2.1.1 is now released to all Jolla devices (Jolla 1, Jolla C and Jolla Tablet)

Another rather sizable Sailfish OS release is now available to download for early access on Jolla devices. It brings a bevy of new features such as a new camera interface with direct access from the lock screen, Mobile Device Management (MDM) enablers intended for corporate usage, new VPN features, smarter calendar, faster email app startup and dozens of community-reported bug fixes.

Sailfish OS 2.1.1 Jämsänjoki is named after a river in the town of Jämsä, located in central Finland, flowing from lake Kankarisvesi to lake Päijänne.

Jämsänjoki introduces the ability of having a rather important feature targeted for corporate usage which is Mobile Device Management or MDM for short. It is used by corporate managements in order to keep the employees productive by enabling the employer to introduce usage policies to certain device activities such as OS updates, WLAN, side loading applications, sharing, location settings and more. This feature is not installed on vanilla Sailfish OS devices; however, Jämsänjoki introduces a number of APIs to the OS in order to make MDM compatible with Sailfish OS. We are also introducing a polished camera interface alongside with an easy way to access the camera directly from the lock screen without unlocking your phone by swiping up from the bottom edge of the screen. This feature can of course be disabled from the settings menu in “gestures” section.

Other highlights from Jämsänjoki

 

Upcoming events

 

Upcoming calendar events

Jämsänjoki will now show you calendar events from upcoming days directly on your notification screen. This feature will help you stay on schedule easier than before.

Tatar language

 

Tatar language and keyboard

Our community votes which language should be next in line and contributes into translating Sailfish OS strings to those languages. Tatar language was chosen and translated by the help of our dear community for this update. Tatar keyboard was also added to the settings menu. Tatar is a language spoken by roughly 7 million people in the world, 5.2 million of which are located in Russia, so it was only fitting to our agenda and our latest releases in Russia to have this language added.

Bluez5 on Jolla C

This update is also going to allow the much awaited Bluez5 which we added the stack of to Sailfish OS on the previous update, Iijoki, to be put in use on Jolla C devices. This means that using Bluetooth Low Energy or BLE is now possible on Jolla C devices in order to save battery while having reliable and fast Bluetooth connections between supported devices.

New VPN types

L2TP or Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol PPTP or Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol are the two new types of VPN that are being included on this update. This compliments the previous update, Iijoki, where we added the capability of using VPN on a Sailfish OS device.

Other improvements

There are dozens of other features and bug fixes added to this version of the OS such as improved Alien Dalvik on Jolla C devices, better connectivity features like the ability to edit saved and out of range WLAN networks and edit WLAN passwords, improved general reliability of OS gestures and many more that can be found in our official release notes here.

You can also follow our detailed instructions on how to update your Sailfish OS powered device here. We hope you enjoy this update and kindly report any bugs found so we can iron them out before the public release of the software.

Special thanks to all of our engineers, designers, and developers who worked tirelessly through the holiday season to get this update out in time! <3

  1. Excellent news. Keep up the great work.

    • Thank you! Kudos to our engineers and developers who worked tirelessly even through the holiday season in order to get this update out!

      • The new calendar events list is just what I was waiting for.

  2. Good news. I’m looking forward to check the new features.

    It’s just sad, that Google Hangout support is dropped. I think, there is an API still available: https://developers.google.com/+/hangouts/api/

    Does someone know, wether the Google Calendar synchronisation bug is fixed? An updated calendar is essential for business.

    When is the update available for Intex Aqua Fish?

    • It’s not that kind of API.

      • Maybe the link is not the correct reference, but there is an open API for Hangout. There is even a native SailfishOS app for Hangout in Jolla Harbour.

        The deep integration of web sources and services instead of many apps are a very good user experiences. It’s one of the features, that makes SailfishOS to the reference of user experience for any benchmark.

        • Unfortunately, the API used in Hangish (the app in Harbour) is not officially supported by Google and it breaks time to time.

  3. Great news again:-)
    Is Emojis coming to the keyboard any time soon?

  4. Excellent! …Although now I find it even harder to justify myself getting a new Xperia + Sailfish OS while my two fully functional Jolla 1s from 2013 still get updates and serve me so well… ;)

    • I can tell you, it will be worth having a faster device ;)

    • As do I have. I have tried SFOS on Fairphone 2 and, yes, I can also tell you that it will be worth having a faster device!

  5. “access the camera directly from the lock screen without unlocking”

    Thank you kindly!

  6. What is the smart in smarter calendar? I can’t see any changes.

    • As an example, showing future events on your events view.

      • Technically that’s a new feature in events view, not in calendar itself.
        Of course you would have to make a – relatively simple, if coded correctly – interface in calendar, but I can’t see any improvements in the calendar app.

        But it’s great to be able to see upcoming events! :)

        • Well, actually if you are speaking technically, it is a feature that is heavily tied to the calendar. But I get what you mean.

      • It would be even smarter if you could specify how many days are displayed in advance. ;-)

  7. Much to my dismay, the battery on my Intex AquaFish gave up the ghost a fortnight or so ago. I obtained the phone in March and have used it fewer than five times. To make matters worse, I can’t find a bloody replacement battery anywhere online. Does anyone have any suggestions or what?

  8. On which device is done the the demo in video?
    Would it be possible that is the JP1?

    • That is a Jolla C.

  9. Thanks a lot for the support of Tatar language. Бик зур рәхмәт!

  10. Good update guys. Keep them coming. What was the small update that just came down, couple days after the big Jamsanjoki?
    Waiting for the Xperia project to become available for my next upgrade path.

    • Thank you for commenting, Mick.

      That small update was a hot fix that was causing a few issues on some of the devices. We made sure to publish this blog post after that issue was fixed.
      Xperia is being worked on real hard! Thank you for your patience.

  11. @James Noori do you know how long (in far future) will be supported the jolla phone for the oS ?
    Is there already a known date about this theme?
    I think that’s may be the time for the jolla-team to think about it, and maybe give one day this limit. Don’t you think so?
    Or it is planed that for any sfos version, the hardware should support it…?

    • We currently have no plans of stopping the support for Jolla 1. We will however communicate before we do so.

      • Speaking of Jolla 1 :

        - any chance, at some point in the future, to also have its Bluetooth LE supported (and bring bluez5 to it) ?

        - any chance, in the future, to upgrade its AlienDalvik ? Specially to KitKat 4.4 as currently on the Jolla C and Tablet ?
        (JellyBean 4.1 isn’t officially updated anymore by google, and even more app are dropping support for it)

        (Will it cost too much / not worth spending ressource on it ?
        Or is it simply waiting for some technical blocker ?
        e.g.: upgrading to new hardware kernel drivers that are actually compatible with Kitkat’s generation of API)

        Alternatively :
        if it’s a licensing issue, how much money would Myriad ask for an AlienDalvik upgrade and could you try crowdfunding the costs to Jolla 1 users ?

  12. ok easy camera access is nice.
    is calendar search feature added?
    otherwise calendar app is still stone age.
    Or maybe I just fail to find it?
    In that case, guidance appreciated:)

  13. Thank you for the update. Since there is support for Tatar language, wouldn’t it be nice to have support for Dutch also? We are a small country with 17 million inhabitants. A Dutch team did their best to make translations, but official support from Jolla would be better.

    • I am Lithuanian, quite a fraction of the Dutch speaking number.
      Would appreciate Lithuanian added as well.
      But calendar search is a top priority, and if there is a tradeoff, the latter is my pick.

    • Kea , you forget the 6.5 million in Belgium and the 400.000 in Suriname.
      So that makes 24 million in total :-)

      • Sorry, I forgot there are more Dutch speaking countries (Flemish, Sranan Tongo). So that’s an extra reason for supporting Dutch.

  14. Dear James,

    You promised me in February to forward my now almost 1.5 year old request (to add the seconds (hh:mm*:ss*) in the clock app), unfortunately the new changelog still doesn’t contain that change. Did you get feedback from someone in the developer team, and if so, what prevents them from implementing this minor, but very useful change?

    Thanks in advance. :)

    • Hello MeeGoUser!

      Thanks for your comment and reminder. Unfortunately this is one of those requests that hasn’t been prioritized yet and is not even currently in our plans to implement. We do have it as a task to do but sadly it has been untouched for a long time because of our lack of resources and other priorities… I would think that this will be added at some point.

      • Well, at least it’s on your agenda and not prohibited by patents or else. It seems a bit surprising that this improvement (which shouldn’t be more than a finger exercise) is shoved so far back in your roadmap, but if it helps to speed up other endeavours, more power to you. :)

        This makes one look back wistfully to the good old MeeGo days, with 1000+ people at hand.. nevertheless, the work you guys have done with 1/10th of the resources compared to back then is tremendous. Keep it going!

        • It is unfortunate, isn’t it? I checked our internal bugzilla and it turns out it is much more than just a finger exercise. We would be more than happy to have 1000+ people to work on these features but that is still a long way to go in this day and age for a small company that is trying its best.

  15. I have been reading comments to this post and suddenly it dawned on me that I will actually get this update on my Jolla from 2013. And it didn’t surprise me.
    Yes, my Jolla started to get long in the tooth in 2015 :) But it is still warming my heart that I can stay up-to-date.
    Not many phone manufacturers provide such level of support.

    • Yes brilliant… not many phone manufactures providing such a long term hardware like Jolla with the one and only JP1.
      But to play fair: Jolla notified to be a software company these days.
      Which also mean they should get the advertised SFOS-version for the Sony Xperia X device running.
      Fingers crossed!

  16. Those refund backers behave like queen bees.
    Keep the money. Survive, fix the OS and don’t refund.
    The OS was (and still is) not ready for basic daily usage, you had to evolve the OS towards tablet suitability.
    Period.

    • F U too. I suppose you think you are entitled to get features paid with other people’s money, no?

  17. Yes! Yes!

    Good to see several posts over a short time frame, this is more like it Jolla! :D

    @James…any ideas as to when we might hear about the Xperia project??

    Any update posts planned?

    • We actually updated the Xperia blog post a few days back if you look, we have released the image to Cbeta and are proceeding with firther verification and testings. That was on 31st of July.

      • Just a small unimportant feedback: I’m not sure updating posts is the best way to approach these things. I follow this blog via a feed reader, and I’m not getting notified of updates to older posts. Maybe posting a new post too, notifying about the update at least, would help.

        • Unfortunately we can’t just create posts regarding our smaller updates. Sorry about that but it would only make the blog cluttered. You can follow our Social Media channels on Twitter, Facebook, Diaspora, Google Plus and more to find out about these smaller updates.

  18. WPA-Enterprise Support, I waited for Years for this feature. Thank You!

  19. Mr. Noori. Talk is cheap. Just make sure Sailfish OS is available and fully functional on all or most Xperia phone by Christmas!

  20. OK James,
    I am really impressed by your communication/ PR skills.
    And the way you avoid some questions, like an experienced sailor avoids rocks and reefs ( pun intended).
    So, what about the search function for the calendar app:)?

  21. It’s very nice that SailfishOS will be updated continuosly. Thanks for that.

    Hopefully some of my wishes will be fullfilled.

    - native PGP in eMail
    - no cd covers and podcast pictures between photographs in Galery
    - more configuration switches
    - get t-mobile SIM working

    for more and better functionalities I would also pay something

    • “get t-mobile SIM working” is too ambiguous. T-Mobile has business in many countries, and I’m pretty sure that Sailfish OS phones work fine with T-Mobile SIMs in most of those countries. In order to fix the problem we have to at least know what the problem is. I would start with MCC/MNC of the SIM card and a short description of the problem.

      • Whoa. Fab scared me there as I have T-Mobile in the U.S. and am eagerly awaiting this phone. When I read that comment, I was genuinely shocked. Thank you, slava, for replying and giving me hope that T-Mobile isn’t a complete no-go for SFOS on the XX.

  22. James, is changing the search engine to others like duckduckgo or qwant on the horizon? And is emoji support coming to keyboard any time soon? :-)

    • Usually, Cisco VPN are the type that one can find at the workplace (my University is using Cisco VPN)

      In other words, SailfishOS is in no position to decide what VPN is used.
      It’s the various employers who decide which VPN to use at their work.
      Empolyees then just require VPN for work.
      Sailfish is then merely just following the demands of their users.

      If you’re not happy with Cisco, just ask your employer to use something else
      (but good luck…)

      If anything : at least Jolla is using the opensource “vpnc” to access Cisco VPNs.
      So at least the code running on your phone is open and less likely to contain backdoors for spying.

      • Then your university made the wrong choice, like many others did. Especially research centres, public services like health instututions, schools, etc. should only use safe, open source systems. Not Google, not Cisco. Unfortunately these big companies are lobbying heavily with their huge budgets and alternatives are quite unknown. Cisco is compromised by the NSA scandal. They even helped building the architecture for the NSA spying activities. They are really a wolf in sheepsclothes. https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/ios/12_2sb/feature/guide/ht_ssi.html
        The Jolla team is making VPN possible on Sailfish. They do not chose our VPN’s. But offering Cisco products and protocols is something that Jolla should not do. It degradates Sailfish. The best choice we can make on Jolla is OpenVPN.

        • Can’t tell you how lucky I am, being senior, free.

        • Yes, the universities *should*.
          But in practice don’t.

          Some department (mostly data analysis and research) move to Linux OS, use openvpn for VPN, etc.

          But most administrations, just go for the easiest path. Easiest defined as “what they already have” and “what they can just lazily pay a big company with a big name to take care for them”

          So most desktops in other places still run Windows, and their network is built with “Enterprise Grade (c)(tm)(r)!!!!” Cisco hardware, and they picked up their solution for VPN.

          Like I said, at least the implementation used by Jolla is opensource. So no Cisco backdoors on your side (phone).
          Then regarding the other side (VPN server): just DO NOT count 100% on VPN for all your security.

          Best practice is always end-to-end encryption.
          So, above the VPN, you layer a SSH connection all the way from your phone/tablet/latop, to the server you’re contacting.
          Thus even if the VPN server runs proprietary software with government mandated backdoors, this VPN server will only see encrypted gibberish flowing out of the VPN link toward the server you’re contacting.

          Regarding Jolla’s offer of VPN :
          well they have to listen to their customers. Customers want as many VPN solutions as possible, in order to use them on very diverse connections (whatever their employer/university/etc. uses).
          Jolla *has to* listen to customer, otherwise the customer will move away (and switch to Google Android).

          Jolla isn’t in a position where they can afford to impose their view of the world on everybody (they are not Apple).

          They’ll have to match their offer to customer demand and answer to what end users are asking for.

          BTW, some Cisco hardware seems to also have been independently compromised in China at the manufacturing level….

          • Thank you for your long reply. I know it is difficult to resist to the big powers, but it is necessary.
            I am an end user too. And I want Sailfish to be different. That was Jolla’s slogan at first and I still think it is important to use alternatives as much as we can.

  23. Cisco installs surveillance camera’s on squares in our city. I have heard them say in a video-podcast that our personal privacy will disappear. That is how they think. They also are lobbying heavily in Brussels (like many other American companies).

  24. Hello James,
    I would appreciate it very much if you could explain why the Jolla team added the second and third VPN option?

    • Hello Kea!

      Please excuse me for my late reply on this matter. Initially we prioritised support for VPN types like OpenVPN, which is secure and fully open source solution. Support for PPTP and L2TP was added, because both, while having issues, are still very widely used in corporate world and supported by all modern operating systems. Of course everyone has the option of not using them as well.

      • Thank you for the answer! I realise you have sometimes difficult decisions you make. But for customers, end users, it’s also good to know whith whom they are going to be involved. I would like to see employees speaking to their bosses about more ethical alternatives. If nobody dares to speak, nothing changes.

        Keep up the good work!

  25. Android apps will work on Xperia X with sailfishOS?

    • Well, duh.

      Of course they will. (At least at the more or less same degree as on J1).

      This is the whole reason of the delay.

      • Great to hear, unfortunnatly I have Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 with sailfish os, and I don`t think taht we get android apps support too

  26. Will the update fix the problems I now have on my Jolla 1?
    1. can’t save new contacts
    2. no text message notifications
    3. camera not saving anything
    4. can’t download email attachments
    5. no missed phonecall notifications

    … and will it make my phone crash and lose everything like it did with Iijoki?

  27. When it was available for intex aqua fish……..?

  28. Since the latest Sailfish update and the udate of Here WeGo (7august) , this satnav app crashes on Jolla 1 .Problem mentioned on Jollatogether, but not yet solved. Here is a good satnav. Can it get support again? Is Here in the Jollastore not a much better idea?

  29. Any way you comments on old blog post?

    Will we see any more refund mail now when you recevied responses and possibly a few donations?

  30. In finland Dna operator 4g mobiledata doesnt work at all. It says network error. Calls and sms works except multimedia sms doesnt work. wifi network works normal.

  31. Since the newest update form Here WeGo this app crashes. I have downloaded and installed an older version of Here WeGo and now it works again.

    • Hmmm, it works OK for me. I finally updated a few days ago. I’m on 2.0.11510 8.30.73.154

  32. Are anymore devices planned for India? My Jolla 1 doesn’t seem like it will last long.

  33. Hallo,

    after the 1st try to update my Jolla C it runs into black screen –> factory reset was necessary

    Okay second try: update was fine but now my microphone does not working correctly anymore during a phone call.
    I can only switch to free speech or use a head set, what a f..k!

    With CSD tool I can check the mic and the hardware seems to be okay.

    So my mood is between angry and impressed by new features :-(

    A manual downgrade to previous version results in same error. It’s a pity

    I hope that the problems will be fixed quickly.

    Denis

    • Seems like your mic has died. Have you goggled this fault or looked on Togther Jolla.

      I’ve had two OS upgrades within the last week, everything seems to be running well.

  34. Is this a black screen or a solid update?

  35. Enjoyed many successful updates, but this one seems to have finished off my Jolla 1. Nothing but a black screen…

    Is it possible to recover?

  36. Hello! Nice to read that! Can I ask you, what will be next steps after finishing SFOS for Xperia X? I mean how will u choose the next device and when will u tell us, what device will be next?

    Ur next custommer hoping in Xperia X Compact,
    Tobias Stancel
    :)

  37. Ive been following you for some time, and have modded my Nexus 5 and 5X to run SFOS. I’m very happy the Xperia X image is coming. I will pay anything for as long as you stay true to not being like fucking google, I believe in this project. Thank you.

  38. Hi,
    the update doesn’t show up on my jolla 1 device :(

    • We hit a small rock while sailing, we had to stall the update rolling out to people, it will be re-released shortly.

      • Hi, why not updating the status of this page until a plug fills the hole?

        • It is now updated, apologies for the delay.

      • Hello James,
        Any chance to have an estimated data at which the update will be made available again?
        My Jolla 1 device is a bit sad at the moment :/

        • Hi!

          I can’t give you a particular date, but the issue is being worked on as we speak and shall be dealt with shortly.

          • hi James,
            seems that the update process got stop for all kind jolla / sailfish gadgets.
            Any news about the small rock you hit???
            looks like even rocks can grow. ;-)

  39. good progress!

    when comes support for Hungarian language? ~15mio people speak it, ~10 of them inside Hungary… :D

    any plans related to native SIP, VoLTE and VoWiFi supports?

    they could easily be great enablers for Sailfish…

  40. Have you located your random script? The lease run it and send out some mail. Or atleast explain how the current status is. Waiting September info soon. Cheers.

  41. after 2 years im still waitng for my refound!

  42. HELLO !!! When is the September round of refund starting ??

    Or was it AGAIN a false promise to do this every month ?

    Man how can you guys live with yourself ?

    • Umm… We’re less than halfway into the month so maybe you should calm down a bit?

      As for how the people at Jolla can live with themselves? I can’t imagine it being much of a problem seeing how this is really just people making a fuss about an investment that didn’t pan out and Jolla trying to refund these people out of pocket. Contrary to what you may think, they don’t just have that money lying around for shits n’ giggles, they spent it on developing the tablet and SailfishOS 2.0.

    • September round is being worked on as we speak. It will start when everything is in place.

      • Excellent news! Would it be possible to set up a live stream? Maybe a Christmas edition refund stream? Where jolla can about the year and the challenges and opportunities for the upcoming year. And the most important of course – announce the refunders.

  43. SAILFISH OS will be dead if it doesnt get back to launching atleast 1 phone a year. Apple just copied the swipe gestures and people will forget sailfish/meego even existed long before this.

  44. I manually installed 2.1.1.26 using terminal and now my Intex Aqua Fish is asking me to downgrade to Iijoki. Why is that? Plus it’s been weeks now and no information on the roll-out of Jämsänjoki. Please reply.

    Thanks in advance!

    • Hi, Jämsänjoki was pulled down due to some issues with some users’ security codes. It isn’t solved yet that is why it is not recommended to update until the problem is solved. Thanks!

      • Dear James

        I wonder why there is no estimated timeline yet an also no easy to find information on the bug.

        I would like to see a link to the mentioned bugs. Then I could decide if it bothers me or not.

        Further would I be interested until when I may expect a new update.

        I’m using right now a Jolla C and a Jolla 1.

        Thank you.

        Kind regards,

        megalith

        • Hello Megalilth,

          The bug may or may not affect you but it was vital that we had to take it down because it would render your phone unusable if it happened to you. A fix should be on its way shortly.
          About the bugs, if you look for it on TJC, you will find threads regarding it.

          Cheers

  45. Hi James,

    please consider updating the blog to refelct latest news on TJC:

    2017-09-20: Decided to discontinue the roll out of 2.1.1. We will focus on finalizing 2.1.2.

    Thanks for your effort!

    • Hello,

      Thank you for your comment and your concern. Yes, an update should be published on this post by the end of today reflexting what we have said on TJC.

      Cheers,
      James

      • @James
        Does this mean it would be better to downgrade from 2.1.1 to avoid later issues or do appear the bug only during the update process?

        Thanks for reply,
        Jens

        BTW: I’m more and more curious about “Sailfish X”, only some days left. ;-)

        • It is recommended that you stay on the “officially released” software to avoid issues. But if you already have updated and the bug hasn’t appeared right after the first reboot (the bug will not let you to unlock your phone) you should be fine. We are now working on finalising 2.1.2 which should be available when it’s ready.

          Yes, only a few days left until the sales starts. The image itself will be available to the public on October 11th. That’s the day many people will remember :D

          Cheers,
          James

          • I have updated three devices in the night of the release and I have no issues with any of these devices including those two that have a security code set- all of them have undergone several reboots after installing Jämsänjoki.

            So I can confirm that it is save to stay with the updated device

            • It actually varies from device to device, but I’m glad you do not have any issues! Thanks for reporting :)

              • Just to clarify James. I like many people in the community updated my Jolla C and Jolla 1 device when it became available for early access users. Do I now need to downgrade the OS version or can I just wait until 2.1.2 is available and download / install it.
                Cheers

                • Hi Seannyboy,

                  If you already have the 2.1.1 update, you can wait and update to 2.1.2 whenever the update is available. No need to downgrade.

                  Cheers,
                  James

  46. I would really love more choices for calendar recurrence flexibility. For instance:
    - Every first (and third) Tuesday.
    - Every x number of days.
    - Last day of the month.

  47. It would be nice to know if there is some plan to create screen reader, speech synthesizer and braille display support and other assistive tools for the Sailfish. Currently there is no screen reader etc for the Sailfish so blind users like me can not use Sailfish. Please create screen reader for the Sailfish. Open source speech synthesizer like espeak would be better than nothing. And braille support would be nice too. On desktop linux assistive technology like these are used: at-spi, speech-dispatcher, espeak )and espeak-ng), brltty, Orca, espeakup etc.

    • As a clarification: Orca is a screen reader, espeak and espeak-ng are speech synthesizers. brltty controls braille display and braille keyboards integrated in braille display devices. To make everything work you also need at-spi and speech-dispatcher etc.

      • Orca also uses brltty. On KDE there is also Jovi, I have not used that so I do not know if that is useful, AFAIK it is not full screen reader like Orca…

  48. Would it be possible to get some kind of countdown to next Refund? So we know when the mail can be expected. Its no fun to not knowing if you win or lose in Jolla Refund game .

    • Short answer: no.
      Long answer: …no. it’ll happen when we have the possibility of making it happen.

      • Obviously. But when you are ready you are ready an then it’s time. Then you scream: MAAIIILLL TIIIME! Via news letter function. That way you will get more poeple subscribing to your mails. Win win win! :D

  49. Hi, I tried FM radio yesterday with Sailfish OS (Version 2.1.1.26) and have to realize that my Jolla C constantly crashes. Maybe it can be fixed with version 2.1.2?

  50. Will 2.1.2 also fix the baseband radio of Jolla 1 ?
    (Currently, it tend to get stuck on boot, until ofono.service is restarted or unless battery left unplugged for long time – see various together.jolla.com threads fix tips to fix).

    Is that what is referred as “unable to unlock” ? (the black screen with blue wait ring that shows up instead of unlock screen while baseband is blocked ?)

    Also, any chances (even *paid for* chances) that we could get Android Kitkat (the oldest that still gets updates) on Jolla 1′s Aliendalvik ?
    (and corollary question: will we get a Kitkat-ready kernel and driver upgrade, like other smartphones with the samechipset running kitkat, e.g.: HTC One Mini ?)

  51. I have an Intex aqua fish, do I assume the update has been pulled on that aswell. Cheers

  52. Can anybody plz tell me that how to flash sailfish os in xiaomi mi max (hydrogen)?
    Anybody ported yet?
    Or, anyone please port this os for mi max (hydrogen)?
    Thanking u very much

  53. Hello, now that the first early beta of 2.1.2 are being tested by TMO forumers :

    Do you have some general time-frame for the expected release of 2.1.2 ?
    Are you aiming for october 11, to be released together with Sailfish X ?

  54. Since the 2.1.2 update just arrived on my Jolla C,
    do I need to upgrade in order to make a backup to migrate easily to my brand new Xperia X tomorrow?
    Hurray, only one day left!

    • I would suggest you to do so, although I am unsure if it would make that much of a difference.

      • Thanks James for your quick answer.
        Maybe I try it first time with a backup file
        from my current 2.1.1 version.
        As everybody knows:
        Never change a running… ;-)

  55. Hello James,
    I just got the update 2.1.2.3 Kiiminkijoki on my Intex Aqua fish. ( I haven’t done anything to my phone yet so updates are from intex).
    First of all Thank you very much for this update and esp. like the camera part.
    Now for the hard part, I am sorry to say James but the phone has become too laggy. Nothing opens. On checking with with lighthouse app, I found that CPU is being used >90% during the first 30 minutes of starting of phone. After that, the phone operates normally.
    But other than that, its refreshing. Thanks a lot again.
