SAILFISH 1.1.4.28 FOR THE HP TOUCHPAD (SFOS 2.0 will be out soon)

What works?
Bluetooth, Wifi, Sound, Codecs, Sensors, Graphics.
What does not work?
If you toggle Bluetooth, it will not work... Camera does not work (never really tried).. mtp server

Note: SailFish 1.0 is meant for phones... Keyboard orientation is wrong in most apps. Just an FYI. Don't gripe.

RNDIS is currently how I am transferring data to the device.
sudo ifconfig usb0 192.168.2.2
192.168.2.1 port 2323 for telnet or port 22 for ssh
Or use the ip address via wifi.

Orientation: Go to Settings, Display, and set the Orientation for Landscape, if you like. SailFish does not support Landscape in "lipstick" but 2.0 should support that as they are releasing the Jolla Tablet and it looks like it is Landscape.

Copying Media:
Login as root and set a password for nemo, login as nemo. Copy files to your folder (ie Videos\Jolla) and chown the files for nemo.

You MUST install the CM-11 ROM that goes with SailFish.
Both Kernels for CM11 and SailFish have been compressed with XZ.

I use ClockWorkMod that supports /data/media roms.

SailFish 1.1.4.28 https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0ERXWZfh_RJdENKY25ieGFHME0/view?usp=sharing

(If you disable system.mount and create your own /system folder that contains the CM11 rom, then you could use another rom of your choice in your cm-system partition)

One day jolla might enable the store, for the touchpad... rom needs to be tested.

Status Update

Graphics are now stable, and we are using hwcomposer now instead of fbdev.

That is great. Wifi works... I am using the 3.0 kernel.. 3.4 would work as well... but for now I am staying on 3.0. Plus the backlight is better. :)


Working out orientation issues. I got half of it to be right..
SailFish OS 2.0 actually supports Landscape but it is not realeased yet.. And it will be running on the jolla tablet.

Instead of buying a jolla tablet..... ;)

Orientation is working, so is Sound and Pulse through libhybris and droid-sinc instead of using the ucm files without pulse.. Which probably would not fly with sailfish without pulse...

I tried to use pulse with the ucm files, only seems to work without pulse and just alsa.. sure would like to know why, but oh well.. hybris works...

Orientation is in landscape.. kinda strange, I think it would be better in SFOS 2.0 which should be out soon. Had to edit a QML file.

Anyone want to play with it? I wasn't going to upload anything until SFOS 2.0 (where the orientation is actually right) But if someone wants to play, I will upload something.

No long winded posts for now. So don't except to see anything for about a month regarding Sail Fish 2.0

I'll undust off my Touchpad if you want to upload it!

It works for me, except after installing zypper and rebooting it just gives me a black screen.

OK, got the files, flashed CM11, then Sailfish. Got the new boot menu entry, but after selecting it I get a "BOOT FAILED!" message. Tried several times, same result :(

I have it working again now, I wonder if we can fix keyboard issues with tweaking its qml files.

So as I haven't yet, thank you for this. I haven't used my tablet much since I lost my Nexus 7(2012) and gained my LG G3. But with Jolla Sailfish OS I've found new life. Really this is the perfect Linux based mobile OS. I just wish Ubuntu touch was this stable on here. I'm installing so many developer tools and porting my code like crazy! Again thank you!!!
