edit: latest 14.1 base out with fixed camera and booting

edit: alpha6 is out, sensors fixed, but camera is completely broken

So I finally have a decent enough port of SFOS on bullhead

Thats an old video but a quick demo.

Flash the latest stock image for your base and boot into it. for android 7 thats 7.1.2 (N2G48C, Aug 2017) and android 6 thats 6.0.1 (MTC20K)
Reboot to twrp

Issue with install apps from the app store or warehouse?

Quote:

need to setup password in developer options
devel-su pkcon refresh

also since store is sometimes a bit meh, you can use

https://openrepos.net/content/basil/...use-sailfishos

best way to copy files onto device is through ssh, setup password in developer options

store is sometimes broken, you need to do devel-su pkcon refresh in terminal, need to set password up in developer options.

OTA - Over the Air update

Best way to update SailfishOS is by using an ssh connection to the phone.
Disable all patches and Openrepos repositories before updating.

Before updating use

Set desired release version, for example 2.2.0.29:

Quote:

ssu release 2.2.0.29

Refresh the package cache:
Quote:

devel-su pkcon refresh

Upgrade SailfishOS:
Quote:

version --dup

Reboot the phone and enjoy the new release.


this wouldnt of been possible from the immense amount of help from the guys @freenode#sailfishos-porters

Holy crap this is awesome! I was waiting for a sailfish os port since I switched from my nexus 4. Is there a way for me (as an non-coder) to help you out somehow?
Oh and do you think it is possible that camera will work in the future or is this a missing driver code thing?
