Announcement from beidl: Port of Jolla's SailfishOS for the Galaxy Nexus.

SailfishOS for Galaxy Nexus (GSM)



This is a community port of Jolla's SailfishOS for the Galaxy Nexus.
It features a gesture-based user interface with a unique design and ease-of-use in mind.
For more information about SailfishOS please head over to sailfishos.org.

This is not an Android ROM, this is a different operating system.
It only uses parts of Android for hardware enablement (drivers).

Special Thanks to vakkov, sledges, mugna91, the Mer Project, the Nemo Project and all the fine people over at #sailfishos-porters

Release Notes:
This release is based on SailfishOS 1.0.8.19 (Tahkalampi).
The Galaxy Nexus port is considered to be of alpha quality.
Though depending on your usage it might be stabile enough for daily use.

Bug reports:
Please issue bugreports at the Nemo Project Bugzilla.

Known issues:
  • Due to an issue with ofono, reading from SIM does not work. You'll need to remove your PIN lock before flashing.
  • Setting an ambiance (color theme & wallpaper) causes hangs. Either needs the battery to be pulled, or you can SSH into the device and run:

    systemctl --user restart lipstick
  • The startup wizard is getting skipped for now, due to the issue above.
  • The Jolla Store currently does not work. As an alternative you can try Warehouse for OpenRepos.
  • The camera does not work.
  • Due to redistribution issues the codec for MP3 can't shipped. To enable the codec run the following command:

    devel-su zypper in gst-av

Instructions & Download:
  • Make a backup
  • Factory Reset (Wipe /data & /cache)
  • Wipe /system
  • Install CyanogenMod 10.1.3
  • Install SailfishOS on top:
    Mirrors:
    beidl.eu
  • Reboot

Awesome! I'd love to check this out, as I've been following the progress in the other thread! (And because I'd actually like to check sailfish out, I never experienced Maemo and Meego so this will be an entirely new experience). However the XDA download link is unbelievably slow (Topping out at like 30 KB/s maximum on a decent internet connection). Does anyone have a download link from a service such as Google Drive/Mega/AFH? I'd be extremely thankful if someone did have a mirror, and would return the favour by uploading it. (If the OP allows for mirrors).

Ubuntu 14.04 recognizes the device as a ethernet cable connection..
I've played around the USB settings and all the others are charging-only.

Alright, definitely something nobody has tested, for whatever reason. As you are using Ubuntu, a quick sshfs mount to [email protected] might do it for now.

Also, powering down the device while connected via USB to the PC, reboots it instead of shutting it down.
Can't try sshfs since i've just restored my Android backup bc Gnex is my daily driver, I'm sorry.

As mentioned, the "Alpha" tag is pretty much justified. Thank you for testing.

Also, the "untrusted software" switch is pretty useless and installing 3rd party applications
is supposed to be done through the command line for now.
