Updated list of non-conflicting Patches (which I have installed), and Patches conflicting with or being an alternative to them (which I have looked at, so far), for SFOS with Patchmanager 2.3.3-10.41.1 (post #2340 was for SFOS
Note that in order to install some of the Patches listed below from Patchmanager 2's web-catalog, one has to activate "Enable developer mode" in Patchmanager 2's pulley menu (so it shows "Disable developer mode" there), as a few the Patch authors missed to mark their Patches as compatible with SFOS; never mind, because if a Patch is really incompatible to the installed SailfishOS version, it will not apply when trying to activate it in Patchmanager's main menu.

Format: - <Patch name> <my rating>, <Patch author>, <Source: wc (Patchmanager2's web catalog) | RPM (e.g. via Storeman)> [, <alt (alternative) | cts (contains) | "cts" (contains similar or same functionality) | cnf (just conflicts)>: <Patch name> <my rating>, <Patch author>, <wc | RPM>]

"My rating" resolves as follows:
- (+): Nice to have
- (++): Very good
- (+++): IMO a must
No "rating" indicates, that I have not used this Patch long enough to rate it.

Patches listed as an alternative (alt) to and / or contained (cts / "cts") in a Patch implicitly conflict with it (i.e. they cannot be applied together in Patchmanager, as they are patching the same locations of the SFOS UI).

And if you like to disable these functions:
- No automatic launcher hint, cornerman, RPM
- Less home animations, cornerman, RPM

... or add this functionality:
- MazeLock, coderus, wc,
alt: Scramble lockpad buttons, coderus, wc

Unfortunately, these Patches are not (yet) compatible with SFOS
- Notifications count in Switcher (++), coderus, wc (last working under SFOS 2.1.2)
- GPS supplier (+; solely for Jolla 1 phones!), Schturman, RPM (last working under SFOS 2.1.0)
- Show month and days of the week heading in Calendar (++), pichlo, RPM (last working under SFOS 1.1.9)

P.S.: As YMMV (just as everybody's, including mine over time), please refrain from criticising my preferences (WRT chosen functionalities) or my (certainly) subjective "ratings".

And still, any suggestions to enhance this list are welcome.
