Its the best phone os. Android turned words like smart os and multi tasking into joke. To describe this os I have to add the word true. Its a true smart phone os with true touch ui, multi tasking is super, they really stay opened until u close them. Task lists are live, even with windows 8,8.1 and 10 couldn't do it like sailfish. Its a true smarts os for touch screen smart phone with true touch ui, true multi tasking and true everything else. The only thing its missing is an Ubuntu touch like toggles from top.
This os would make the moto g3 great. I have been waiting for this os for looong, i just hope this gets ready before I decide to through away moto g 3 for moto g 4.

Just backup your internal storage because flashing it will wipe it. Twrp>wipe>advanced wipe>dalvik,cache partition, /system.
Then, TWRP>Wipe>advanced wipe>check only /data>repair/change file system and change it to ext4. Now flash CM12.1 first, then the sailfish. Done.

Be Kind, please rewind..

No offence dude but XDA doesn't allow place holders.. �� and Ima waiting fo this!!

You're authorized, and requested as a representative on the behalf of XDA-Developer's? Sure doesn't sound like the community I've been here along through the years with. The one we, as testers, developers and contributer's have come together in an OPEN SOURCE COMMUNITY, to bridge the lack of what device manufacturer's fail to provide.

Nobody here is "place holding", nobody from what I can see has claimed to have invented, innovated or be sole-bearer to the rights, designs nor developments that this fine, newfound Developer has gone as far to provide yet something unique and different than another bug-riddled build of Android.

You should consider giving him credit, this is not how extend gratitude wether its offensive or not. This is very offensive, don't make light of demeaning and slandering someone who has made the comittment and dedication it takes to become a credible, self-made developer. I think myself, as well as most other poster's from the community can agree, if you feel that morally or credibly a poster, developer or anyone who falls into the criteria, that you could handle this in healthier, non-offending, positive and respectful manner. If you feel you need to voice your concerns, do it over a PM, or take it up with the attending Moderator's, otherwise keep negative feedback that is otherwise a irrational judgement. We build things up here, not close them up and isolate someone who in an open source development community depends on fair criticism and feedback that he/she will use to better themselves and projects and grow to be like so many Dev's we owe it to for providing what we are grateful to have. Unless, of course you are good with bootloader-locked, stock firmware with no modifications nor customizations?

This, this is meant with no offense. Tough but firm, Drama belongs on Facebook. This is a community not a dumping ground. Please post within reasonable expectations, or just don't say anything at all. Constructive criticism is what it is, but you are blessed with the keen-ability to demean somebody? Think about it, I don't know if you contribute or have any development background, but this is alot of hard work, long durations glued to a screen driven to not stop until not possible to do so, or achievement is made.

A developer in numerous languages, platforms and arch's. I speak for myself, this hardworking port this poor guy has struggled to provide....for nothing, no pay, no reward. As well as other developer's. All I can ask is, please be nice on behalf of developer's and the blood and sweat they sacrifice for everyone else's enjoyment and leisure.

Good job to OP, keep it going. This is a little off the beaten path from Android in a sense. Let me know if I can be of assistance, I've some pretty in-depth knowledge of the sailfish project while designing my own, independent platform. Happy developing. -mkocmut:D:good::good:

Do i have to find the link myself in xda, or is that the fun of it, searching. I don't mind doing that but usually something else will catch my attention and I will forget what I was originally searching for, a link would be really cool in the OP

    Reboot and run again modprobe wlan with user root

    I was wondering exactly the same thing.Taking windows loaders and xposed thingies in mind; it may be possible to inject the modem files to the setup or fool it to think they are in required location.But I admit I have never seen anything like that before.

    Guys i have already tried with syslink, but i have not success.

    Try yourself, extract all file that are in /firmware/image, in another directory.

    Do a syslink in /firmware/image (first mount partition with mount -o remount,rw /firmware).

    The only result was a device reboot.

    P.S: For connect to device telnet 192.168.2.15 2323
