This is a community port of Jolla's Sailfish OS for the Nexus 5.
It features a gesture-based user interface with a unique design and ease-of-use in mind.
For more information about Sailfish OS please head over to sailfishos.org.

This is not an Android ROM, this is a different base of an operating system called Linux, running glibc library.
It only uses parts of Android for hardware enabling (drivers).

Special Thanks to the Nexus 5 porters situ & vgrade, and their helpers: alin, dmt, tbr, iKozzz, MultiROM author Tassadar, Jolla sailors especially jusa, spiiroin, phdeswer, Hannu Mallat, the HADK team, the Mer Project, the Nemo Project and all the fine people over at #sailfishos-porters

Release Notes:
This release is based on Sailfish OS 1.1.9.28
The Nexus 5 port is considered to be of beta quality.
Though depending on your usage it might be stable enough for daily use.

Download & installation instructions:
https://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Adaptations/libhybris/Install_SailfishOS_for_hammerhead

HW Support status:
(Look for Nexus 5 row): https://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Adaptations/libhybris

Bug reports, if internet search refuses to help:
  • First search XDA for keywords. Things like libsailfishapp have already been worked out by this amazing community
  • Software-related bugs (Sailfish OS): first search http://together.jolla.com . Tag your questions with "community-build"
  • Hardware-related problems: at the Nemo Project Bugzilla under Hybris-ing component
  • Please do not contact Jolla Care or Jolla Developer Care, as this is not the Jolla phone :)

Known issues:
  • Android app support is not available (unlike in Jolla phone), but you can already play classic Android games like this. On app side there has been some awesome progress on #sailfishos-porters on irc.freenode.net, status reports being on this XDA Thread
  • All remaining: In Bugzilla

ROM Kernel: Linux 3.4.0

Tips:

MultiROM users: if your primary ROM is Lollipop based, just install any Sailfish OS version accompanied with CM11 .zip, and you'll have best of both worlds working! Thanks to @julle131 for finding this!

Changelog:
Moved to Mer Wiki: https://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Adaptations/libhybris/Install_SailfishOS_for_hammerhead#Changelog.

This is really nice, thank you. I do have one question however, since the base is CM 11 M9, would this be compatible with MultiROM?

Edit : Nevermind, downloaded the image and extracted it, it comes with it's own boot image thus answering my question that it does not. Thank you.

You're very welcome, our team is non-the-less excited :)

Considering your question: Please volunteer to make this work under MultiRom et al. However for now you can always boot to underlying CM by doing "fastboot boot boot.img" or permanently flash it to recovery

not working for me, am I doing something wrong?
what I did:

1. flashed CM11 M9 then Jolla Image(not working stays on Google Logo, almost waited for 10 min and so then I rebooted phone by pressing power button, still dont work)

then i tried this:

extracted boot.img from cm11 m9 and flashed it via fastboot then flashed flashed jolla image from recovery, still no luck for me...:crying:

Any Help would be appreciated...

EDIT: never mind fixed the issue by flashing via twrp seems like phiz touch was having some issue...

This is great, thanks for the link and the heads up. Gonna try this out today.

On a side note: I am really tempted to get the Jolla phone, mainly to run my android apps (plus the OS looks great).

During install, or during setting up, there are several roms that ask for su permissions, like roms with lots of features like recents, stuff like that. If you don't give it permission you won't be able to use some features I'm guessing. Grant, always grant

my main concern is security. I know if someone wants your info they'll get it but guessing does not put me at ease. thank you for the reply

I'm a Jolla user and hope this awesome OS will work fine even in my N5, I've tried the previous build and I'm glad works continue with newer. :)

    Nice work. I'll definitely give it a shot!

    Thanks! We have just fixed the backlight problem, so wait for proper alpha4 release with latest sailfish and no battery drain

    Nice work. I'll definitely give it a shot!

    Today everyone's buzzing about Jolla Phone update 10 just out, but community has candy for those of you without a Jolla: Nexus 5 Alpha4 is out! Read the first post for downloads and Change Log!

    Jolla Store works! Re-sign-in with your account and enjoy those apps! (also coming soon to another Sailfish OS ported device near you ;) )

    If an app doesn't work well, contact their author and tell about it.

    If icons look too small/don't scale, you also can tell to the author, that after next release there will be SDK update for Jolla Tablet, then we'll also update https://sailfishos.org/develop/docs/silica , explaining how to scale your apps; author can also nag us bit more by writing to sailfish-devel mailing list ;)
