This is a testing version port of SailfishOS to Motorola Droid 4 (maserati), based on CyanogenMod 11.0.

What works:
  1. Graphics
  2. Sound
  3. Mobile data and calls
  4. Wi-Fi
  5. Camera (for taking photos/videos)
  6. Hardware keyboard

Known issues:
  1. [s]Video recording doesn't work yet[/s]
  2. Bluetooth discovery works, but no proper connection
  3. CDMA networks are completely untested and probably don't work
  4. No FM radio

Installation:
It's intended to work with SafeStrap, due to device's non-unlockable bootloader. SailfishOS install/init scripts were modified to allow booting from secondary slots and safe rom slot.
  1. Boot to SafeStrap recovery and switch to the slot you want to use
  2. If it's not a new slot, please wipe data/system to avoid potential issues. [s]Don't install it to stock slot[/s]. Stock slot install is fixed now, but please be careful and have device fully charged.
  3. Flash cm-11-20160104-UNOFFICIAL-maserati.zip
  4. Flash sailfishos-maserati-release-2.1.0.11-test.zip on top of it

Thanks to carepack, who initially started the port, and all the great people at #sailfishos-porters and SailfishOS community.

26.04.17 update:
New image with SailfishOS 2.1.0.11.
  • A lot of small but troublesome issues mentioned in the topic fixed.
  • Video recording works now.

There is no update path from older image yet, I'm still waiting for OBS to be set up for the device.

Getting a Bluetooth keyboard to work on a device with a keyboard built in is probably not very important anymore. Thanks for expanding the reach of Sailfish!

Bought it from eBay (this seller) and used Russian forwarding company to send it from USA to Russia, since the seller doesn't send here and often it's actually cheaper than seller shipping directly.

That's why they use prices like that. It's 25$ not 24!

That works pretty well. For only 299$ it's 300 not 200 and something

Hi TheKit,

Thank you so much for this - excellent work, and great to have a new OS to try on my Droid 4.

Were you able to access the phone's internal storage or an external SD card at all? I'm not sure whether it's me not knowing what I'm doing, or something that hasn't been implemented yet?

Thanks

Hasn't been implemented yet. Actually internal storage is mounted for SafeStrap to /ss folder. To access it as nemo user, set developer password, go to terminal and:
Code:
devel-su
usermod -a -G media_rw nemo
reboot
I will fix this in new build. As for external SD, it probably won't mount yet due to OS considering mmcblk0 (external SD) as internal storage and mmcblk1 (phone NAND) as external storage, since it's usually the other way around. I'll look for workaround for this.
