When I run this command, only channel 14 appears to be disabled. 12 and 13 are working. I think I flashed the version for "The Netherlands, Other".

You could create a systemd unit file to execute this command on boot.

Create a file /etc/systemd/system/enablewifich.service with the following
Code:
[Unit] 
Description=Change region to enable WIFI channels 12 & 13  

[Service]
Type=oneshot 
ExecStart=/bin/sh -c "echo OFF > iw reg set GB"  

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target
then enable the service

Code:
systemctl enable enablewifich.service
This was adapted from this link:
https://unix.stackexchange.com/quest...pt-for-systemd

No need for a shell; just use something like:
Code:
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/iw reg set IT
Once enabled the service, just reboot. Note that iw reg set... takes one or two seconds to change to a different wifi regulation setup.

The wifi "channel" is actually the center frequency - adjacent channels frequencies overlap. This is why most of the commercial wifi access points and routers use either channel 1, or 6, or 11 (and this is why I use 3 in the garage and 13 at home).

Btw I see that XperiaX wifi is even better than Jolla1's - also the WoW (wake-on-wifi) is better, quickly recovering from energy saving modes (no need to try non-default values).

Wow, I just associated my Logitech K480 Bluetooth Keyboard from SailfishX.

It works.
When some text input is required (that is: when the cursor is on) and the keyboard is on, the virtual keyboard disappears.

Note that in my Settings I have Language "English US" and Text Input / Active keyboard "Italian", Text Input / Keyboards "Italiano", Text Input / Active Layout "Italiano" (my K480 has an Italian layout).

I would suggest http://opengapps.org/, but I haven't tried it yet.

You should use:
  • 32bit ARM - Sailfish X only use 64bit for the kernel, AFAIK
  • KitKat 4.4 version (That's the one supported by the aliendalvik on Jolla C, Tablet, and Sailfish X. Jolla 1 is still stuck with Jelly Bean 4.2, thanks to qualcomm drivers)
  • either the pico (bare strict minimum for Play) or nano (pico + a few extra google services not available on the playstore).

Note that in theory, as your Xperia was licensed for Google's Android, you should in theory have the right to run google service on your Sailfish X installtion.

(But your local jurisdiction's software copyright laws might be nitpicking because you don't use the exact verison that came with your phone - by extracting it - but download a different but more or less functionnally equivalent from the web).

Just follow HtheB workaround here:https://together.jolla.com/question/...n-tablet-or-c/

You would need to stop store updating by one or other of these:

Yup, Sailfish OS has supported physical keaboard since ages.
My favorite keyboard to use it the bluetooth "4 parts W-shaped" foldable by think outside.

(this one).

Very high quality. The size of a laptop 5 rows keyboard, (numbers on a separate row, unlike the later "2 halfs V shaped" foldable).

The K480 is a nice keyboard for around the house. You can pair it with three devices (eg TV, phone, tablet) and easily switch between the three. Then there's a slot at the top perfect for holding your mobile devices.

Hi,

Has anyone noticed the email client is slow to open emails on X?

Opening the emails with Sony X side by side with Jolla phone, and Jolla phone is noticeably quicker.
