This is a port of Sailfish OS to the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 (aka chiron).
At the moment this is a very early state port.
Current state: Alpha 1
Sailfish OS Version 2.x (work in progress)
Alpha 1: sailfishos-chiron-release-184.108.40.206-guhl180103.zip (current)
Be warned. This will wipe all your data and you will get a very, very early user experience!
Remark: The installation of the correct LOS (14.1 for SF 2.x) image is only necessary once. So if you already did this the first time you can skip steps 1,2 and 5.2
1. Boot into fastboot mode and format the data partition using the command:
fastboot format userdata
3. Upload the LOS release:
adb push lineage-14.1-20171229_174133-UNOFFICIAL-chiron.zip /sdcard/
adb push sailfishos-chiron-release-220.127.116.11-guhl180103.zip /sdcard/
5.1. Clear data and cache (factory reset)
5.2. Install the CM release by picking the CM image (this is needed so that the correct version of the binary libraries and firmware files are in place)
5.3. Install Sailfish OS by picking the SFOS image (this will take quite some time)
6. Reboot the device
After the initial boot the language selection and initial setup will show.
You have to skip the WLAN connection because there is no working WLAN or modem atm.
After that it will take a while and then the Jolla tutorial should come up. You can skip the tutorial if you want by clicking the corners of the screen in the following sequence: Top-Left, Top-Right, Bottom-Right, Bottom-Left.
- Telnet access via USB to the device on IP 192.168.2.15 and port 2323
- ssh access for the user nemo after Remote connection is enabled in Developer tools in Settings
- You can play Galaxy Attack if you enable the on screen controls as sensors do not work yet (click on top-right corner)
- everything else
