Sailfish OS (also styled as SailfishOS[4] or abbreviated to SFOS) is a general purpose Linux used commonly as mobile operating system combining the Linux kernel for a particular hardware platform use, the open-source Mer core stack of middleware, a proprietary UI contributed by Jolla or an open source UI, and other third-party components.

https://img.xda-cdn.com/5dGe4LAbLo9FcvMwgfIMsKK8Kto=/https%3A%2F%2Fencrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com%2Fimages%3Fq%3Dtbn%3AANd9GcQHAuqvr7XmonwSPe5DHrOulENRuxL91-M8xDXQD0gZyqa1XdPP

It's a beautiful OS developed by the Jolla and the mer team. The UI is totally gesture based. So say good bye to your boring Android navigation bar. The OS is fast and butter smooth with zero lags. This is a totally new experience and certainly a delightful one from the same old boring mundane Android which has had almost the same UI since 5.0.

Bugs:
Please note, this is a BETA release. This ROM has some bugs and I will look forward to fix them in future.
1. Bluetooth some times misbehaving
2. Android apps are not supported
3. Screen turns off while making any calls or received any calls (Press Power + Vol UP or Down to access dial pad) Due to Proximity Sensor issue call progress screen gets off (Possible Workaround follow the steps below :-
Connect to internet,
set the ssh password in developer tools
open terminal application
type following commands carefully
[nemo@Sailfish ~]$ devel-su (it will ask password which you have saved in Developer Tools,
[root@Sailfish repos.d]# mv /etc/zypp/repos.d/ssu_adaptation0_release.repo /home/nemo/ ssu_adaptation0_release.repo.bkp
[root@Sailfish repos.d]# rm -rf /etc/zypp/repos.d/ssu_adaptation0_release.repo
[root@Sailfish repos.d]# zypper in mce-tools
[root@Sailfish repos.d]# mcetool --set-ps-mode=disabled
Now try to access dial screen
4. Proximity Sensor issue
5. On miscall it produce 3 loud beeps (Not found any fix yet to resolve this issue)
6. Reboot and Shutdown is not properly working (Need to keep pressing Power Button for 2-3 mins.)

Flashing process – (Flash Lineage OS first then Sailfish OS – Follow the below given steps)
1. Boot in TWRP recovery
2. Backup your existing OS with all partitions to /sdcard location and keep this backup safe on your pc or other location before proceed further
3. Wipe cache, dalvik cache, system, data.
4. Flash downloaded Lineage OS 13.1 zip file
5. Go back (TWRP Home screen), Click on Mount and uncheck Data only
6. Now go back, Click Install, select SailfishOS zip and flash it.
7. Once flash gets complete reboot
Reboot will take some time. (There is no boot animation so you will not able to see any logo or animation during boot)

@halifage
as mentioned above currently very few apps present in Jolla store for moto g4 plus, once I switched to OBS then we can see more apps for our device. email is present in current store.whatsapp is not there because whatsapp has restricted access using third party application. In future I will look for the android apps support for our device.

Thank you very much Mukesh for this ROM,
I was waiting for this since a long time.

But can you help with some few things please :
1. I am currently on June security patch, so the bootloader can't be downgraded.
2. Should I try flashing sfos on this firmware?
3. Any precautions I should take?

Your help will be appreciated
Thankx.
