P.S. Most of the community doesn't live in the US. Which is why I am asking for the experiences of our American community members if there are US-specific issues we need to watch out for
The concern is real what with what seems to be standards followed by the United States of America (with Canada and Mexico in tow plus maybe a few other nations) and The Rest of the World in regards to many things like vehicle safety and emissions standards, electricity generation, product safety standards, and radio-magnetic frequency utilization.

There have been no reports of issues with Sailfish X connections in the USA using the community recommended firmware.

Fun fact: The original Jolla works in Canada (some regions like Toronto and Montreal and some carriers like Rogers and Videotron) with 2G for voice and 4G for data. No 3G. The switching from 4G to 3G (oops, no 3G, let's look on 2G) to 2G takes ages so by the time the device switches through a decade-and-a-half of network technology the network has already given up and either the attempt to call is dropped or the incoming call is redirected to voicemail. But it otherwise works if the switching is done pre-emptively and manually.

I appreciate the response. I will go ahead and try the linux install using the recommended files.

Regarding US standards: it's frustrating that Jolla does not put in more (i.e., any) effort in the North American market. But I can't say I blame them with our different telecommunications standards and requirements. The carrier-centric model of phone purchasing in the USA (Americans are used to buying their phones subsidized in conjunction with a phone service contract) makes it difficult for phones to make headway in this market without carrier partnership. Sadly, it is what it is.

I'm in the US on T-Mobile and 4G/LTE works great. I'm in Chicago, so my area is typically heavily congested, but everything works well.

For the record, I flashed on top of the latest Emma image (coming from the community build, I just wanted to make sure). I flashed a EU version on accident (I was still on my Finland VPN, so Emma populated based on that) but everything still works as it should. I don't think there are any region issues.

I am going to purchase a second hand F5122 (only one available here in Vietnam) and give Sailfish X a go for the sole purpose of adding another one to the count.

Due to being behind with other works I came to dislike digging up procedures from forum based on "just read this thread" rules and the prospect of having to spent hours just to flash the phone OS.

Is there already a complete and up to date step by step guide here or on together.jolla.com?

Starting with "how to know if bootloader can be unlocked"
via DRM key backup (optional)
to Flash officially via Windows
or unofficially via Linux / Mac OS with warnings?

Normally I am not lazy but I think this guide is really really needed.


Edit: This looks like a good base. Many thanks to the author.

Yes. There is official instruction which is really good one.
https://jolla.com/sailfishxinstall/

So instructions I used:

1. backup DRM keys (OPTIONAL)
http://sailfishmods.de/2017/07/howto...ys-bootloader/ (I used this guide translate google com ..)
https://forum.xda-developers.com/xpe...ria-x-t3590476

2. Install SailfishX
https://jolla.com/sailfishxinstall/
(if mac or linux use together with this. http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p...78&postcount=1 )

Voila.
