[Community Build][][Updated 18th Aug] Sailfish OS for Fxtec Pro1

Recommended Posts


I used the first Jolla and even got hands on the dev phone a few years later. I really liked Sailfish even though it had some quirks.

However I've switched to android as most of all apps I required were android ones and the support back then had some issues.

Now that Sailfish runs on the Pro1 and version 4 is out, I really would like to try it out again.

I have a few questions though, can I simply update from 3.4 to 4, or do I have to wait for a port? How is the android support on the Pro1?  I read that it had some issues on that phone. What about the other hardware? Bluetooth, Phone over WiFi, camera and such?

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

3.4 uprade to 4.0 at the moment is the only way to to get to 4.0.


How is the android support on the Pro1?

It's good if one knows how to get it, since it is not officially supported. Some quirks with the keyboard, but others can suggest things before upgrading to 4.0. I did a slow transition, but now it is my conplete daily driver. Recent addition was getting the camera to work.

I think others might have some thoughts too

Hello, I have to flash my phone, and I think I will give Sailfish a try. You make my mouth water...
just for my information, can you use GPS with openstreetmap on it ? How useful is the GPS for daily use ?

I found so many sources (wiki, telegram, blog, this forum...) I'm a bit lost 😄

Anyway this will increase my learning curve, as Linux is my best OS-friend for 3 years.

  • 3 weeks later... should now be available and working.

As previously ... 3.4 -> 4.0 -> 4.1 should work fine as far as I know.  I havnt done a clean flash of 4.1 (infact, a full image isnt available just yet, so i dont know if that is working)

Can I install it directly ? I never had sailfish install.

There are instructions on installing it, I have since moved back to LOS as I will wait for 4G to be developed first since my carrier is restricting more and more

I was not aware 4G was not working in SFOS anymore. It is said to have worked even on the very earliest releases (end 2019 - mid 2020) according to this post [maemo.org]. What happened? With 3G getting shut down everywhere, this indeed disqualifies SFOS as a daily driver for a lot of people.

With news like this, and the development of UBTouch also stalling, it seems like Lineage/AOSP-ROMs are indeed all we are left with for the original Pro1. 😞

Could somebody please share Sailfish OS image for F(x)tec Pro¹? Google Drive link https://drive.google.com/file/d/1tIyq1DgnwIR9533-qze2KKlUhy6-2npt/view?usp=sharing is apparently broken.

I have recently turned my device into a brick by software updates - apparently, fixing ca-certificate issue, after many months of being unable to contact repositories due to curl error 60, is liable to bring problems. See https://irclogs.sailfishos.org/logs/%23sailfishos/%23sailfishos.2022-01-29.log.html for details. I will likely have to reinstall Sailfish altogether - after I adb pull all my photographs/videos/documents/audio-recordings/downloads/whatever from the device. It takes time because my laptop doesn't have enough free space for all the files (~100GB) at the same time.

Perhaps, I could use adb shell and adb push to patch the problems on my device to fix the issue - that is, if I knew what the issue is that makes the device unbootable.

I do have a sailfishos-t5-release- on my laptop, from the last time when I had to reflash my device. Could use that in a pinch... But am hoping somebody has somewhere.

Thank you. Best wishes.
Per aspera ad astra...
