Remark: The installation of the correct CM (12.1 for SF 2.x) image is only necessary once. So if you already did this the first time you can skip steps 2 and 4.2
1. Boot into your custom Android Recovery and make sure that the sdcard is mounted
2. Upload the CM release: adb push cm-12.1-20151117-SNAPSHOT-YOG7DAO1K5-thea.zip /sdcard1/
3. Upload Sailfish OS: adb push sailfishos-thea-release-220.127.116.11-guhl171102.zip /sdcard1/
4. In the Recovery on the device:
4.1. Clear data and cache (factory reset)
4.2. 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)
4.3. Install Sailfish OS by picking the SFOS image (this will take quite some time)
5. Reboot the device
After the initial boot (that will take some time) the language selection and initial setup will show.
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.
- Recorded-Video playback: Works but uses a nasty hack that might have stability and security effects.
Known not to work
- There is an issue switching from video-playback to camera. Sometimes the camera app hangs afterwards -> reboot.
- updated to version 18.104.22.168 (complete rebuild and code cleanup)
- fixed screen startup on reboot (aka lipstick-hack) -> stable reboots
- probably the best and most stable build up to now.
- updated to version 22.214.171.124 (fixes also USB "Alwas ask" mode)
