OTA updates
To upgrade to a new Sailfish OS release, enter these commands as root

Anbox(Broken after 3.0.1.11)
Yeah, it works on vince now, but it is experimental
Code:
devel-su
ssu ar birdzhang-anbox http://repo.merproject.org/obs/home:/birdzhang:/anbox/sailfishos_3.0.1.11_armv7hl/
ssu ur
zypper in anbox-sailfishos anbox-sailfishos-image-mixed-32-64-bit
systemctl start anbox-container-manager
systemctl-user start anbox-session-manager
And click anbox icon, it will start.
How to install apk to Anbox
Code:
cp your_app_name.apk /var/lib/anbox/data/
#lxc-console -ndefault -P /var/lib/anbox/containers/ -t0
/usr/bin/anbox-shell.sh
cd data
pm install your_app_name.apk
No keyboard?
You need install one input methed, and enable it. (tested GooglePinyinInput_v4.1.1)
