Regarding your other points, thank you. I admit I have been out of touch for a while and did not follow all the latest advances. This is mostly because I no longer use Jolla as my main phone. I switched back to N900.
Dear @pichlo, sorry, but You are demagogue, not E(!)ngineer. If You havn't desire to help, then You keep quiet please.
May be You think Rinigus and other suffer from idleness?..
HERE(MapsMe...) for SfOS? You may pay to here.com(or Mail.ru...) and use it after...

Wow!

First, I said I do not have the time to contribute, not the desire. I may not have the necessary skills either. There are different kinds of software engineers, just like there are different kinds of doctors. Would you go to your dentist to take out your appendix?

Second, I acknowledged my lack of awareness and thanked rinigus for his contributions and bringing my attention to it.

Lastly, this is exactly the kind of arrogance that gives FOSS a bad name. "If you don't want to help, then shut up." If you cannot see why that attitude can put the users off, then there is no help for you.

Let's keep the discussion on topic and non-personal. In the end, we all want to help and resolve the problems that we have - otherwise we would do something else than being at TMO.

Thanks for a reply - I do understand the trade-offs and we cannot always contribute as much as we would like. I wouldn't mind to have people working professionally on SFOS and its apps. However, I guess, we are not in the position, in terms of the market share, where we can pay for many developers.

In terms of satnav, we are fortunate to have a very hard problem that is solved by professionals in open source manner. This could be not the case for other problematic cases. However, there is a hope that with the movement to Wayland by Linux distros, we may get more coverage through "regular" libs.

Oh, who was it asking for XZs TA save? You might be lucky - new BT kernel bug was disclosed.

If it's the same way as with android at the very least it will work with one sim if you flash the single-sim rom.

They hinted that they work on F5122 dual-sim support, too. Which would be logical.

PS I have dual-sim X, too.

No thanks!

Remember the old adage that if it's "free", you're the product.

I wonder if we can use the built in bash on Windows 10 to do all of this?
