Thanks for the prompt reply. Installed without problems this time. Only walked through the tutorial and used the phone app, but that all works flawless.

I plan to do a new build to fix this and some other issues from the thread later.
Marvellous, thank you - working perfectly.
For my purposes, at least, this is now fully usable.
The only other little thing I've noticed, which I'm not really going to miss, is that the keyboard doesn't light up.
Thanks again.

I've spent a few minutes navigating Sailfish and selected Landscape mode. It did change apps behaviour but very inconsistent in the GUI. Sailfish issue?

The OS is pretty snappy and touchscreen responds very well. Battery life seems to be not too bad as well. Now 60% so -40% in 1 day. Not played around with it very long though, without WIFI connection.

Hi TheKit,

I couldn't seem to get Windows to recognise my phone when I connected via USB to transfer files? But then I realised I could just use WinSCP over WiFi which is miles better anyway, so I can't think of any reason, personally, to use USB again.

I can't believe how little attention this has got, given that CM/Lineage 13 and 14 aren't that stable at the moment, and this is very stable and fast. I reckon that once you post on XDA this could be quite popular - I'm certainly sticking with it!

If you do make any more improvements, it would be wonderful if you could post the commands required for existing users (like me) to save a reinstall, but I appreciate that's a lot to ask.

Many thanks again

IMHO nobody on XDA will really care about this. They are so Android-centric they don't even want to know SFOS exists...

Nexus 4 & 5 have their threads on XDA and they have much more pages then in here

https://forum.xda-developers.com/goo...2841266/page79
https://forum.xda-developers.com/nex...2969823/page78

I think some people think that this is another custom rom for their devices.

I love this OS and i'm never gonna use android on nexus 4 or nexus 5. From now on i'll be choosing smartphone based on if it can run or not SFOS. It's great sony will support it officialy on their xperia devices, that makes it easy to buy a smartphone with decent hardware and camera and play with SFOS.

I miss the real XDA- aka windows-mobile-days of XDA-DEV, without all these cyanogenmod repackers and the lack of interest in anything besides android..

Something went horribly wrong! First I wiped everything excluding internal storage. Then I flashed CM11 and SFOS. I tried to boot but got black screen for about 10min. Then I rebooted to safestrap and selected ROM slot 1 instead of stock ROM. Then I tried flashing again and got black screen for 10min.

After that I was not able to boot safestrap again. I was able to boot AP Fastboot so I tried to flash FXZ. After 5min FXZ failed because I was out power. My Droid 4 doesn't charge anymore. I guess that I need new Droid 4 with fresh battery so that I'm able to recover my old Droid 4.

I don't know what I did wrong

Booting from stock slot doesn't work, as it was found in the topic before, I should have updated the first post to say this explicitly. For modern phone I would connect it to charger and leave for some time even if it doesn't display anything on screen, but not sure if this phone will charge without OS running, need someone who is more familiar to it to confirm. In the worst case you can use universal battery charger like this one.

Sorry that it went this way for you.
