In the "valid interfaces combinations" it clearly shows that "AP" and "Managed" are separate features, thus the hardware does not support being both an access point and a client at the same time.

Using the command iw dev wlan0 link on SailfishX I can see it is now using the channel 13 (frequency 2472 MHz) at 72 MBit/s speed.
Thank you for the information.

Running iw phy phy0 info gives:

	Band 1: 
[. . .]
			* 2412 MHz [1] (20.0 dBm)
			* 2417 MHz [2] (20.0 dBm)
			* 2422 MHz [3] (20.0 dBm)
			* 2427 MHz [4] (20.0 dBm)
			* 2432 MHz [5] (20.0 dBm)
			* 2437 MHz [6] (20.0 dBm)
			* 2442 MHz [7] (20.0 dBm)
			* 2447 MHz [8] (20.0 dBm)
			* 2452 MHz [9] (20.0 dBm)
			* 2457 MHz [10] (20.0 dBm)
			* 2462 MHz [11] (20.0 dBm)
			* 2467 MHz [12] (disabled)
			* 2472 MHz [13] (disabled)
			* 2484 MHz [14] (disabled)
Is there any way to enable channel 12 and 13? The firmware flashed to bring the device up to 34.3 version was the Central Europe 1 version, so channel 12 and 13 should not be restricted in those regions, and yet it is. Or does Sailfish restrict it based on the timezone or IMSI?

iw reg set [2 letter country code, eg BE, DK, RU, AU, etc] works but does not survive reboot and it changes back to the original settings.

Further testing seems to show that dead SIMs from a variety of countries do not change the regulation setting, while live SIMs do, and the reg setting is changed to the country of the connected network. One wonders what happens on the Xperia dual-SIM version if one is using two different SIMs in a border area, eg, Uzbekistan (1 - 11) and Kazakhstan (1 - 13).

I just realised my X has been quiet all day despite emails arriving...

A quick check shows no sound output at all. Checked volume in settings, ambiences and from the volume key.

I saw this previously on the community build, but this is the first time it's happened since the official build arrived.

I use sailcron to switch to a silent ambience overnight and back to a noisy one in the morning. It certainly switched back to 'noisy', and the 'muted' icon wasn't shown.

Back to normal after a reboot.

Next time I will check the phone audio, and anything else I can think of. Anyone had anything similar?

Hmm... this is too funny to not to mention it here.

After exporting contacts using vcardconverter, I also exported the entire database of calls and SMS messages from old Jolla phone (now without SIM) to Xperia X.

First, export message groups and phone calls lists to a binary file: log in via ssh on Jolla and execute:
commhistory-tool export -groups -calls mystuff
then move that binary file to Xperia X and execute:
commhistory-tool import ./mystuff
(you can safely ignore the bunch of warnings).

and everything gets in place and sorted by date, no UTF8 characters lost, added to the already existing recent calls and SMS text messages in its database.
