    there is one thing i want to say to jolla! i know the sales of jolla phone and tablet are just mini sales against big companies like samsung lg huawei etc... BUT i know at least a hundred people who wished to have sailfish os with android as dual boot on phones like the OnePlus One....they would have even paid a few bucks for it like 20€ to get that thing as dual boot and high end hardware
    i cant understand why jolla didnt try to bring the os to more people.. Look at xiaomi they biggest reason for their success is the many devices MIUI runs on even i n the early stage like 2011.

    Yes. On the IRC, some guy said that he will compile the sources and build a flashable zip out of it soon.

    Case with MIUI is different. It is just a different rom which is based on Android.
    Sailfish OS a new os entirely. However, Jolla decided to make it available for other devices too!

    yeah miui is of course just based on android so it was easier to spread, but thats why it is even more important to spread sailfish os even more than miui because it isnt based on android...
    everyone in this world knows Apple corporation they dont have the need to spread their word to every single person on this planet to make them know to them what apple is. BUT jolla keeps just in the community they mostly live off meego and MER community. BUT TO GAIN NEW CUSTOMERS THEY NEED IT TO MAKE IT KNOWN

    You are absolutely correct, look at what microsoft is doing now after ages. They will be bringing their windows phone os to other popular android devices exactly similar to what miui did 4 years ago.

    Os like salfish and ubuntu need to spread more among the people especially when big companies like Microsoft felt the need to do it.

    The gestures on Sailfish OS are pretty horrible and it it lags on the Jolla phone itself so I really don't understand why are you so excited for?
    Awkward launcher layout, limited functionality and dodgy apk compatibility.

    If you want to try the OS just download and install the Angry Birds Stella Launcher by Jolla and change the birdie wallpaper.

    Looks like phone and data working. There 's a lot of missed text messages and phone calls. Great!

    Possible issues for pre-alpha:
    vgrade
    : "...I think I can do a pre-alpha1"
    vgrade: "then the fun can start with wlan,ril,camera,sensors"
    Source link

    EDIT: OPO got just updated on development hardware support list. Display, Touch, LED, Vibra, Power mgnt and USB are working. GPS is not working for sure and the rest are untested.

    BTW, Great news! Since Sailfish HADK ports are missing Android app support (at least for so far, check latest breakthrough ;)) there is a problem with apps that doesn't have native app support on Sailfish (like WhatsApp). In the past there was good WhatsApp client called MitäKuuluu but users got banned by WhatsApp because it was 3rd party client. That is why developer Coderus shut down the project. However, developer Cepi has started his WhatsUp project again and Coderus is helping him! WhatsUp was great succees on MeeGo platform and never got banned by WhatsApp. The development is looking very promising now! WhatsUp does things differently than MitäKuuluu and hopefully it will not get banned by WhatsApp.

    I'm not a dev. Thanks to the devs only! Vgrade really needs multirom testers so flashing multirom with Sailfish OS would be welcome. It is not daily driver yet.
