maybe you should contact @PiggZ as he left without notice.

No im here, and with news!

I hit a major road-block with sfos on the ACE....the graphics drivers would not work reliably, and didnt work at all with sfos 2. Now however, @Mustaavalkosta has updated CM12.1 to use new adreno drivers, and it helps sfos!

I dont have time this evening to post more info and downloads, but https://twitter.com/adampigg/status/695001435889614848

That is sfos 2.0.1.7, without any kernel hacks to get apps to work. i need to polish it up a little and i will post a download.

Status update. Sensors are working fine. audio shouldnt be a problem. but ..... regarding mobile network, i dont expect this will be a quick fix, the RIL version used on the phone by ofono (the sfos telephony software) is very old (v4) and is just incompatible with ofono. Its not a priority for Jolla to fix it, so im on my own, and its kinda out of my league. Im trying to modify it at the moment to get a data connection, so we'll see how it goes.

thats becuase i havnt yet uploaded the version with working sensors and sound. i think jolla-fileman was removed in sfos 2. i suggest looking on openrepos, which ive installed as you cannot access the jolla-store atm

Just did a day long experiment using using sailfish on the ace as my only phone. Worked pretty ok. Installed twablet and whatsup from open repos for twitter and whatsapp support. turns out bletooth doesnt work yet so couldnt pair with my car. Data and cellular seemed ok....twice i lost data connection and rebooted, but other times when i lost it, it came back ok.

How is performance compared to Android?

Hey piggz. Coming from a different device. Which branch are you building sailfish from lollipop or KitKat?

Make sure you have an up-to-date recovery. I used 4ext touch. Philz recovery doesnt have the required tar command.
Format/wipe etc
For version < pgz11 Install the latest CM10.1 and make sure it works
For pgz11 onwards Install CM 12.1 nightly 20120131 from http://forum.xda-developers.com/htc-...tlies-t3070621
Copy the .zip to the SDCard and install it. The installation script take a little time.
Hi I got a black screen after installing via twrp 2.8.7.0. What I don't really understand is why should I install cm 12.1 beforehand if you wipe all data?
Edit1
OK understood, it uses some cyangenmod files

    Sailfish OS for the HTC Desire HD

    Announcing Sailfish for the HTC Desire HD

    What is Sailfish?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sailfish_OS

    This is not Android!
    This should be thought of as a development experiment. It may be useful if you are a developer and want to write/port apps the the Sailfish operating system. It is not an end-user product, however, if you wish to experiment and try something different then feel free!
    Please do not contact Jolla Care or Jolla Developer Care, as this is not the Jolla phone

    Video
    Special Thanks
    To Mustaavalkosta for the CM11 kernel and answering my queries via Google Hangouts!

    Installation
    Make sure you have an up-to-date recovery. I used 4ext touch. Philz recovery doesnt have the required tar command.
    Format/wipe etc
    For version < pgz11 Install the latest CM10.1 and make sure it works

    Copy the .zip to the SDCard and install it. The installation script take a little time.

    First Run
    On first run you are presented with a language selection, after this time you should be presented with the first-run wizard. Complete as much as possible, but dont try and create a Jolla account as there wont be a network connection (unless you have inserted a sim and by chance it works, I havnt tested that). To get out of the wizard, scroll down because the 'skip' link is off the bottom of the screen.

    Hardware Status
    https://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Adaptations/libhybris

    Bugs
    Lots
    Several major graphical bugs, such as the keyboard struggling to show and corruption in the windows of minimized apps. This is probably down the the kernel hack I made to get apps to load. (no longer true as of pgz11)
    Cellular network is pretty unusable. No audio input! (fixed in pgz13)
    Proximity sensor is not working and blanks the screen (note, progress has been made on this)
    Mobile data is not working (being worked on) (fixed in pgz13)

    Progress update

    Small progress update. I built an image with sailfish os 1.1.1.27. It works but has a bug which currently requires manual intervention. An update to the MCE component stops the touchscreen working, so its config currently needs manually edited to disable the proximity sensor plugin.

    When i get it figured out i'll post an updated image.

    I may also try and rebase the kernel against the latest from the OpnDesireProject

    Version pgz4 is out now.
    Based on the new sailfish 1.1.0.39, other than that there is nothing much new as far as the ACE is concerned, apart from fixing some init bugs.

    Some progress has been made with the prox sensor, so that should be fixed in the next version.
    Enjoy!

    Sound is working

    Good news peeps, I got sound output working! A new rom will follow in a few days :)

    Ive been using this for the last weeks to allo developing sailfish applications, and for that purpose it is working just fine. Ive not attempted to get the mobile network up yet, but i'll make some enquiries.
