We have a general thread for the discussion of Fairphone (the company), but no thread for discussing the port of Sailfish OS for Fairphone 2 specifically.

Hopefully this can be it

The Fairphone 2 is one of the best supported devices for SFOS, and due to its modular construction the hardware should have a long life.

I ordered mine at the end of Feb but haven't got it yet. If you have yours, hype me up

Wait... I thought they licensed SFOS, so that would have meant Alien Dalvik too, no? Really curious about this.

I always forget that people rely on this, I've never used aliendalvik.

Hoping that the excellent work that has been done on sfdroid will make it to the other ports, at which point I'll start using it. The UI is already tied to the success of Jolla as a company, I don't want to rely on any more proprietary components that can't be maintained by the community of Jolla goes under.

I think it was just under discussion... I've been looking for news about this but haven't heard any.

They just announced cooperation with Jolla and more or less confirmed that Alien Dalvik will come to Fairphone, soon™.

Sfdroid experiments are under way, otherwise Sailfish works quite brilliantly on FP2.

As I have understood it, licensees of Sailfish OS get Alien Dalvik

This Fairphone port is community supported, not official. Strange given the alignment (at least in marketing terms) of both companies that this has not yet resulted in a spontaneous wedding.

I hope Jolla could focus on official Fairphone support soon after the Intex launch.

The problem is that for example, banking apps are only available on the 2 biggest platforms (Android, iOS)
So I don't have a choice

I've personally asked them if it will support dalvik, they replied that it's not coming since it's not an official port, but rather a community port, just like the Nexus one...

Would this actually work on the Jolla phone itself?
