Good news! :fingers-crossed:
I too had ERROR in TWRP (from TWRP site and treble TWRP), just removed from updater-script 1 line and it's working fine on treble TWRP.
Awesome work mate with this port. Do you tried to install alien dalvik? I found some instructions on maemo forum.
I set camera in 10MP mode and it's not working now, and I can't use app "touch" from jolla store.

Thank you for your replay. Camera must be set to low resolution, and third part camear app may not work.

Thank you for your replay. Camera must be set to low resolution, and third part camear app may not work.

Hi, I found some bugs, you mentioned GPS (network location working, I tested WhoGo maps and it's show close location), sensors and:
Low camera resolution, low maximum brightness (on sun I see nothing) and I can't do logcat with alien dalvik (I wrote to you in IRC channel). Torch is working fine, now I'm using system torch.
With latest update stock browser working fine.
I tested mobile data, sms, phone calls, wifi, camera (front, back), recording and playing it. All good :)
If you need any log or testing help just PM me or give instruction here. :D
I also wrote to MOD to move thread to development and it's happened.
Again thanks for work at this port.
