Since the release is nearing, we might have a special thread for this.

Check out the new installation instructions for XA2 that apparently got released already:

https://jolla.com/sailfishx-linux-instructions-xa2/

Keep in mind that dual SIM device images have a problem and in order to flash them correctly, check this:
https://together.jolla.com/question/...post-id-192729

There is now a new shop page, where there is a "free trial" without Android, Exchange and etc.

https://shop.jolla.com/

Btw, the fastboot -i option mentioned was missing in my v28 fastboot, but it wasn't necessary.

We now have the official blog post:
https://blog.jolla.com/new-sailfish-...ts-free-trial/

"The full software package will be available later this year."

The event video shows that the new Android runtime will be 8.1. Also the licenses are per device and that's it.

Successfully unlocked my XA2 H4113 with above linked instructions.

Be advised, after unlocking with fastboot (step 4.7), the first reboot literally takes ages for the android startup wizard to show!
There is no mention of a 5-10 minute first reboot, so be patient and do not hard reset.

Now waiting to complete steps (3.1) and (6).

The rest are "coming soon".

The previous downloads disappeared for me in my account. Can you confirm?

Looks like they're buying time.

It seems the idea is that the core OS is free and you pay for the upgrades. I guess they will offer some kind of upgrade "licenses" to the people that bought the original X.

Getting the free trial unlocks all OS downloads.

On the plus side this might be an indication for app purchases in the store.

Downloads for Xperia X are back with new layout.

EDIT, and after clicking the trial shop link, the downloads for XA2 variants appear in the same account.

Hmm, now I'm not sure if I download X, will the images will be trial or full? Since I've already got these two after clicking the free trial button.
