I hope Jolla starts offering commercial support for SailfishOS on this device, like on the Xperia X phone.
Certainly Sailfish OS looks great on this device, and being an armv7 device you dont have that problem where all the apps need recompiling into x86 to run, you've just got the usual display scaling issues.

I don't think we will see commercial support from Jolla on this though, the base AOSP is not good enough and the hardware is a number of years old now and probably not that easy to buy anymore. In fact its been a few years since Sony has released a tablet at all so maybe they have a new one in the works.

I also fixed the lockscreen, and so the only major outstanding bug is the fact that sometimes it takes 6-7 attempts before it succesfully boots.

I've got an image for SailfishOS 2.1.2.3, so hopefully Jolla can make this one a full release sometime this week
2.1.3.7 is the latest official release. Any updates or intentions for a public release? Thank you.

Sony seem to have given up with tablets as for that matter have most of the manufacturers making higher end Android tablets. My z3c tablet is still in use almost daily and when I've occasionally looked for a better 7/8" tablet, I've not found a one. There's only the iPad Mini that has advanced significantly since 2014 and despite being a Mac user, I find iOS too simplistic and confusing.

It would be nice to see a Sony XZ1 Compact tablet. Then I might be tempted to mess about with Sailfish (again) on my Z3c.

I havent really been working on it for a little while, but I build a 2.1.3.7 image last night and haven't yet managed to get it to boot.

Now i get the fun of figuring out if i need to do something or it's just the same bug thats been annoying me for a while now where it takes 10+ attempts to get it to boot...

Sounds weird, nothing relevant in the boot logs, what do the porters say about this issue?

Is it working well with older builds, maybe we need at least one more sailor to test and reproduce the issue?
