Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

According to user feedback (haven't tried myself yet) USB tethering is currently broken in Sailfish OS 3:

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

I'm still wondering if the trial-version was a planed move or just a side effects not having Android emulation ready for XA2 at launch.

Anyhow, still a really good idea IMHO. :)

Re: Sailfish X for XA2 variants

I think there is no real difference from before ? The third party licensed stuff (Android emulation, predictive typing, Exchange, etc.) never was on the image & you installed it from the stor on...

Re: Problems while installing Modrana

Yes, that is correct - the old QML UI can no longer work anywhere else than on N900 and even here horrible hacks are needed to make it run, while the user experience is dubious vs the "classic" GTK2...

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

Indeed! So far I have been always testing OSM Scout Server related functionality on my Sailfish OS device, but this way I can work on it directly on desktop as I do for basically everything else. :)...

Re: Pure Maps

Yep, that's also something I had to tune in modRana and my WiP Twitter client to make it look sane on desktop, even with Universal Components. It's definitely doable to have a shared flexible UI,...

Re: Xperia XA2 vs X

IIRC, bits of Linage OS are used by Sailfish OS/libhybris to provide hardware adaptation/android drivers for a device. So Lineage OS supporting a device means it is more likely to be supported in the...

Re: Xperia XA2 vs X

It really depends. I would say that for "normal" smartphone usage in 2018 2-3 GB RAM should be enough, especially if applications are reasonably optimized (eq. drop non-critical resources when they...

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

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

Base on modRana user feedback I recently got an idea (or possibly even RFE) - would it make sense if the OSM Scout Server Location search API could also parse geographic coordinates ?

Re: [Announce] modRana: a flexible GPS navigation system

modRana 0.52.18 has been released !

This is still a rather small update that adds support for deleting individual stored POI and makes creation of new POI more intuitive.
