Hi,

as I wanted TextSecure for my my Jolla Device I looked at the sources and found JavaJens version which uses WebSockets instead of GCM.
As the SMS Verification does not work on ACL I patched the source to include a check if a Jolla device (or BlackBerry) is detected and skip the SMS verification.
So basically you need to use the Phone/Call verification which works fine.

You can find JavaJens Sourcecode here: https://github.com/JavaJens/TextSecure

The newest version is now based on Signal which includes WebSocket support. The above link is kept for historical reasons.

Update: 3.31.4 APK uploaded
You can get my APK from here: https://app.box.com/s/l9gt5jbd3jynitxego8rdo1oir3ew5l7

You can use this APK without Google Play Services installed.

UPDATE 2: Landed in the Jolla Store.
Github with SMS verification patch: https://github.com/llelectronics/tex...-edition-patch

Nice to see some action in this direction. I'm following this topic quite long now.

I'm not sure, if the sources of JavaJens are using the productive servers of textsecure. Have a look here: https://github.com/WhisperSystems/Te...re/issues/1000

I guess they are if you are able to see and write to contacts that are using the playstore version on their android devices.

Update:
You actually need to have SMS support activated in the settings for contacts to show up on the Jolla.
Though It does not seem to differentiate between normal contacts and TextSecure contacts.
I guess its a bug in Alien Dalvik as it is working fine on BlackBerry Android Runtime (Yeah I also own a BlackBerry)

However if you click on a contact that is a TextSecure contact it shows you an indicator in the chatbox that it is a TextSecure contact so the message is not send as SMS

Thank you sooo much! I waited for a looong time for a textsecure version that works without gapps.
I'm using it and it works fine so far.

I have a few questions:

Will you keep it updated and will you publish the updated link to the apk here or publish it in f-droid ? (so i can send it to blackberry/android without gapps friends)

Will the planed integration of redphone into the android version of textsecure work on the jolla too? ^^

Hey,

thanks alot for the APK. I'm using it for a while now.
What is the best way to get the push notifications?
While I am in a chat it's running really smooth. When Textsecure is minimized in a cover, there are no notifications most of the time.

hey,
since today I got in Textsecure the message that my version is out of date and I can't send messages anymore. Any known workaround or is a new jolla version in progress?

Yeah had that also.
I updated the apk and it is in Jolla Harbour verification process right now.
I don't think it will be approved today or tomorrow. Maybe the day after tomorrow.
(I guess they still have people there working until the end of the year)

As for now if you need it you can also install it from here:
https://app.box.com/s/0l48h01j368u43e7shfiwghld4dt9f9b

Btw. this is a big update as it includes the renaming to Signal. (originally upstream merged RedPhone and TextSecure to Signal)

This means generally you have also encrypted call support. But it crashes on me here. Might be that it needs some upstream approval after several days on the server for it to work though.
