Re: SailfishOS 2.0 Nexus5 based on CM13 alpha release

Interesting. MMS never worked for me in older Sailfish (images just didn't go through). Never thought about cleaning a SIM card.

Re: SailfishOS 2.0 Nexus5 based on CM13 alpha release

Yes, same here. Still, it doesn't connect in 4G. Good to know that at least it can work in general.

Re: SailfishOS 2.0 Nexus5 based on CM13 alpha release

Does 4G work with T-Mobile (US) in this build for anyone? I only get 3G, and even that can't connect to the Internet (calls work though).

My model is LG Nexus 5 D820, so it should support local 4G...

Re: SailfishOS 2.0 Nexus5 based on CM13 alpha release

A few questions:

1. Are links to new builds updated in the first post? I.e. if I'll install using those links, will I get the newest builds?

2. Is mtp fix included in build 3?

3. Does fixing...

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

Will there be community (free) version? I don't care about Alien Dalvik and stuff like exFAT. Or even drivers need to be paid for?

Re: SailfishOS 2.0 Nexus5 based on CM13 alpha release

What is the state of this build? I have a spare Nexus 5 to flash. Should I use this one, or one based on cm 12.1?

Re: SailfishOS 2.0 Nexus 5 CM12.1 Alpha1 | Sfdroid Pre-Alpha/Early Preview

Is there any progress with moving this to Mer wiki as udpated installation method?

And is sensorsfix3.zip still needed by the way?

Re: SailfishOS 2.0 Nexus 5 CM12.1 Alpha1 | Sfdroid Pre-Alpha/Early Preview

Thanks for the pointer! I'll try experimenting with upstream kernel to see what works and what not. But I never did it before, so it will take time for me to figure out what's where and how to do it....

Re: SailfishOS 2.0 Nexus 5 CM12.1 Alpha1 | Sfdroid Pre-Alpha/Early Preview

Can you enumerate, what exactly is usually using a blob? WiFi I suppose? Touchscreen? Interface to the modem?

Some of that stutf could be in those upstream patches already, some might not. It's...

A bunch of Nexus 5 related commits here: https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/log/?qt=grep&q=hammerhead

Re: SailfishOS 2.0 Nexus 5 CM12.1 Alpha1 | Sfdroid Pre-Alpha/Early Preview

What about using customized Android kernel, but normal userspace like Mesa?

I also saw this: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Linux-4.9-ARM-Pull

is it accurate? It claims:

Re: SailfishOS 2.0 Nexus 5 CM12.1 Alpha1 | Sfdroid Pre-Alpha/Early Preview

Now that Freedreno is progressing quite nicely, is it possible to use proper upstream kernel on Nexus 5 with Mesa without any Android blobs?

There was a talk about such possibility for Nexus 7...

Re: Mer-based OS on a Tablet: what would you like to see?

Mer still made some bad decisions such as using some outdated core packages because of avoiding GPLv3 (for example bash). I hope they'll address that.

Re: Mer-based OS on a Tablet: what is needed?

Plasma Mobile is still in early development, so the way it looks is really an ugly prototype. I'm sure it will change a lot.

Thanks, I look forward for it to mature. We need a solid open option. While Sailfish was supposed to be open sourced according to some recent news, we don't know when and how it will happen.

Did anyone try Plasma Mobile on Nexus 5? I saw the video, but interface looked not as streamlined as Sailfish one.
