Default [PORT] [ALPHA] Sailfish OS for the Nexus 5

So I'll make this quick... just doing some google kung fu, I came across a Spanish forum... HTCMania (http://www.htcmania.com/showthread.php?t=836297)

Word is that user Davidvaz is responsible for this work and all credit goes to him as such, as I said I didnt' build this, just found it.

Low and behold, someone built a working Sailfish OS port for our Nexus 5... and it's actually pretty dang functional... You had to flash it on top of an existing CM 11 install and stuff.. but I combined the two and rewrote the updater script into one flashable zip.

Here's a rough idea of what works and what doesn't:


Also not working: Terminal Application. Installing applications from the Jolla Market.

This is very much a work in progress but it's very functional and I'm very impressed with Sailfish. Have fun!

Oh! And I'm pretty sure you can make it work with MultiROM if you have a primary that utilizes a kernel with kexec hardboot support... Don't quote me on that! I don't use it so I'm not sure... I'm sure someone will make it work if it doesn't already, though.


Download Mod Edit:Link Removed.. sorry copy.com is lame I guess, haha. Once someone downloads if they could mirror it on mega or someplace.. upload stinks.

Issues with the rom, however, I probably won't be able to assist you with.

Thanks for finding will give it a go....never enough roms for this rock bottom crack flashin fool.... Thanks for feeding my addiction... And glad you checked HTC Mania Ive found a few there, VampSkyDragon (lol that name cracks me up) and SlimVamp (again lol)... Probably one of the least likely Nexus 5 Rom places you'd think to look but they do have some so good lookin out.

No need to flash cm11.

It is clearly stated in the op that it is combined and there is no need to flash cm before flashing sailfish os.

Thanks for the time you spent on this. I'll try out multirom now. Can't even begin to express my excitement!

EDIT: I spoke too soon. The download is not working.
Code:
{"result":"error","error_code":"1048","error_string":"Link 'NiiPOdORFQSo' has been flagged as abuse"}
EDIT 2: If you can figure out a way to get it to me, I'd be happy to host it for you. Mega, perhaps?

Yikes, Yeah for sure I'll try to figure out why copy flagged it.

Edited OP,
