Hello,

Jolla SailfishOS seems interesting option as a mobile operating system, at least for a linux enthusiast like myself. During the last week news about interesting hardware adaptations have come to life. I had to try out the rom for the Nexus 7 (2012 grouper) available at the XDA Forums Nexus 7 discussions.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/nexu...alpha-t2859817

I was surprised how well it worked! Yes there are bugs and things that didnt work, but for a first alpha release it was quite good. Im actually still using it although I will soon switch back to some android rom. Yesterday there were some early rumors about HTC Desire HD port not available yet: http://www.jollausers.com/2014/09/sa...htc-desire-hd/

SailfishOS uses Cyanogenmod/Android for hardware drivers (libhybris) just like Ubuntu Touch.

Jolla has released a Sailfish OS Hardware Adaptation Development Kit Documentation giving quite detailed information how to build a version for different Android devices.

For hardware requirements a device with an ARMv7, supported by CyanogenMod 10.1.x is needed. I quess this should be ok. (Still memory, hardware keyboard support etc. are a question.)

But what do you think? Would you be interested to see this running on the HTC vision and are there anyone advanced enough interested to try porting this? Im quite sure my own skills would not be enough to handle this task

Hi demkantor,

I never said that I will abandon the Vision and it's community, I only said that I will abandon Android

Have fun - Guhl
