Regarding sailfish, the port is certainly still in development and has not stalled.  I use it as my daily driver with few issues. The latest releases are available from the continuous integration

PSA Updating to Sailfish 3.4 The update to Sailfish 3.4 on the Pro1 is much anticipated.  Not only will it bring the great features in 3.4, but it also bring encrypted home partition for added secur

@piggz, @TheKit thank you sooo much! I guess I'll just go ahead and flash it. Hope I won't damage anything being woefully inept at anything alike , but the instructions by @Waxberry seem  clear enough..

In case of failure, I hope there'll be someone more competent around to help me out.

 

Hope it goes well, im sure someone will help you out.

Is TWRP fully working?  I saw some older information about it not support A/B partitions, but that was from July.

 

I tried pinging the TWRP developer Chen thanked and will start a new thread (if he doesn't) if he replies with more info.  But even the early reports said it could flash, so for installing SFOS it's fine, and for stock backup, we already have a flashall so no worries that way either.

I'm running KDe Neon. Installed fastboot and adb over the official repositories. And want to flash SFOS on the Pro1.

What is meant with "Transfer the TWRP image into the adb folder of your PC" Is there a special folder or do I have to configure one. Or is ist just like transfer the file where adb is installed. In my case this would be usr/bin

it is just meant to have the file in the folder where you are running adb from 🙂

The TWRP seems to be only useful for Sailfish when you flash it with the way described, because of system-as-root, see the adventures in this thread:

It is 32GB. The steps are not described very good I think. It is not go back and go to reboot and choose reboot into recovery, but go back on Start Page choose Install and there choose install from zip. I have now installed it that way anyway I got the same message :

No OS Installed! Are you sure you wish to reboot?

Shall i??

Can't get it to work. I completely repeated the whole procedure. I think the first time I missunderstood the part "go back and go to reboot and choose reboot into recovery"

Anyway, this time i did the reboot to recovery. But I always get the failure message :

Failed to mount '/vendor' (invalid argumment) Install runs thtough, but after instalation it still says, no OS installed and I can't boot into anything else than recovery mode.

Any hints?

Congrats Popanz!  I seem to recall that first boot taking forever when I tried sfos on PQ, but the instructions had said it would, so wasn't surprised.

After you've played with it a bit, you should start a new thread to describe your first impressions, etc...  also mention if you can get into the Jolla app store.  My understanding is that Jolla has to approve the device first; not sure if Pro1's allowed in yet...
