Sailfish OS for Nexus 5



MultiROM ≥v28 ability is now in the image (starting alpha2). New to MultiROM? Read here.


This is a community port of Jolla's Sailfish OS for the Nexus 5.
It features a gesture-based user interface with a unique design and ease-of-use in mind.
For more information about Sailfish OS please head over to sailfishos.org.

This is not an Android ROM, this is a different base of an operating system called Linux, running glibc library.
It only uses parts of Android for hardware enabling (drivers).

Special Thanks to the Nexus 5 porters situ & vgrade, and their helpers: alin, dmt, tbr, iKozzz, MultiROM author Tassadar, Jolla sailors especially jusa, spiiroin, phdeswer, Hannu Mallat, the HADK team, the Mer Project, the Nemo Project and all the fine people over at #sailfishos-porters

Release Notes:
This release is based on Sailfish OS 1.1.9.28
The Nexus 5 port is considered to be of beta quality.
Though depending on your usage it might be stable enough for daily use.

Download & installation instructions:
https://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Ada...for_hammerhead

HW Support status:
(Look for Nexus 5 row): https://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Adaptations/libhybris

Bug reports, if internet search refuses to help:
  • First search XDA for keywords. Things like libsailfishapp have already been worked out by this amazing community
  • Software-related bugs (Sailfish OS): first search http://together.jolla.com . Tag your questions with "community-build"
  • Hardware-related problems: at the Nemo Project Bugzilla under Hybris-ing component
  • Please do not contact Jolla Care or Jolla Developer Care, as this is not the Jolla phone

Known issues:
  • Android app support is not available (unlike in Jolla phone), but you can already play classic Android games like this. On app side there has been some awesome progress on #sailfishos-porters on irc.freenode.net, status reports being on this XDA Thread
  • All remaining: In Bugzilla

ROM Kernel: Linux 3.4.0

Tips:

MultiROM users: if your primary ROM is Lollipop based, just install any Sailfish OS version accompanied with CM11 .zip, and you'll have best of both worlds working! Thanks to @julle131 for finding this!

Changelog:
Moved to Mer Wiki: https://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Adaptations/libhybris/Install_SailfishOS_for_hammerhead#Changelog.

This is really nice, thank you. I do have one question however, since the base is CM 11 M9, would this be compatible with MultiROM?

Edit : Nevermind, downloaded the image and extracted it, it comes with it's own boot image thus answering my question that it does not. Thank you.

You're very welcome, our team is non-the-less excited

Considering your question: Please volunteer to make this work under MultiRom et al. However for now you can always boot to underlying CM by doing "fastboot boot boot.img" or permanently flash it to recovery

not working for me, am I doing something wrong?
what I did:

1. flashed CM11 M9 then Jolla Image(not working stays on Google Logo, almost waited for 10 min and so then I rebooted phone by pressing power button, still dont work)

then i tried this:

extracted boot.img from cm11 m9 and flashed it via fastboot then flashed flashed jolla image from recovery, still no luck for me...

Any Help would be appreciated...

EDIT: never mind fixed the issue by flashing via twrp seems like phiz touch was having some issue...

So finally a thread was made in Development.

Here's some more images: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2&postcount=78

I do hope the thread doesn't get spammed with useless non-contributive posts like "how to flash this", "x doesn't work" or "my phone is brick" like the Sense 6 port.
