Maybe a bit more patience is needed. Certainly if you can get a Jolla Phone it will do everything a Jolla Phone will do.

I don't have that option. Jolla is not selling in the US yet. So I wait and see. But the team working on the port seem to be making great progress.

azazel i'm a bored owner of a Samsung i9305 (s3-4g) there's any chance for me to try sailfishos on it? 08:13
sledges faenil: to where you have extracted/rsynced gapps (/opt/alien/.. iirc ?) 08:14
faenil sledges, yes just found it thanks anyway 08:14
tbr it's been surprisingly silent around the 9305 08:14
sledges azazel: give me your email and you'll receive porting guide when it's out 08:14
tbr it's all just nx4 08:14
chriadam pp: thanks. I'll poke matt about it tomorrow anyway 08:14
sledges (pm your email azazel , not on this channel that is) 08:14
tbr given that sledges, a sailor just implicitly said that azazel will need to port it himself, I'll conclude the i-9305 port by Jolla is dead in the water, for unknown reasons. 08:15
azazel oh 08:15
*** jukkaeklund_ has quit IRC 08:15
suy which was the way to get additional packages installed on the virtual machine? (e.g. QtContacts, QtPositioning) 08:16
azazel that's sad 08:16
Stskeeps long story short we hit some issues with modem part that we didn't have capacity to sort out, but, it'll be possible to build images for i9305 and other bits that are quite functional when HADK finally does come out 08:16
azazel i already have CM on it 08:16
Stskeeps just that we're focusing on making one good reference image 08:16
