Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

Starting with Jolla C/Intex Aquafish Sailfish OS switched to the (IMHO much more robust) combination of EXT4 on LVM.

As for the issues with BTRFS, the main issues were likely caused by the...

Re: [Announce] Native offline maps: OSM Scout Server

This is really sad - it's already really hard to write non trivial native applications and apparently not well though out changes like this don't make this any better.

In any case, huge thanks...

Re: Transponder, a native messaging client

It's basically a component set I wrote so that modRana (and any other apps using Universal Components) can have a single QML UI codebase that is independent of Silica/Qt Quick Controls or any...

Re: Jolla - alike, or how Jolla adopted the Google's anti-open-source practices.

Sure, that's definitely an improvement over a closed source & immutable UI and already enables a lot of stuff via patches.

But without an open license and a functioning upstream, the ammount of...

Re: modrana

I'm afraid it's not going to work.

The modRana offline routing guide (ModRana_offline_routing_guide) on the wiki only applies to Maemo 5/N900. The N9 version of modRana never got routing support...

Re: Jolla - alike, or how Jolla adopted the Google's anti-open-source practices.

That's more or less the point - I don't think there is any good reason anymore. A modern Linux distribution is not really that different from what Jolla is trying to achieve with Mer - some pieces of...

Re: Jolla - alike, or how Jolla adopted the Google's anti-open-source practices.

I don't think Jolla and Google are really comparable like this.

While Googles agenda is clearly apparent & nicely described by that rather well known Arstechnica article, in Jollas case the...

Re: Transponder, a native messaging client

Well, no. From observations so far (2013-now) basically every time a community initiative hit any UI work in the closed source components only Jolla developers can do things ground to a halt and have...

Re: Transponder, a native messaging client

Also if I remember correctly, there is still the closed source UI layer, so even if community implemented all the backend stuff, someone from Jolla would have to do the UI bits to actually make it...

Re: Why do we have iphb in the whole Maemo family

Yep, it's the same thing as on Android (wakelocks) - when the screen of the device is turned off, the device will basically do a suspend to RAM (you can check fro that in the journal), freezing all...

Re: [Live] Youyota 2-in-1 Tablet

I as another backer have no issue with the delay as long as the device actually arrives eventually, so I definitely prefer a device (even if delayed) to a refund.

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

I don't think this is correct. IIRC (based on Jollas press releases) it's a different & presumably substantial not yet named third party in China.

It will likely not be easy to support everything modRana does (routing/navigation/POI/on map...
