Hi people!

I would like to install SaiSailfish-OS onto my flytouch-7 tablet, to replace android! I dont want to try iit on the scratch! So an install-disk and a HowTo would be helpfull. And Yes I am willing to pay for this service if the price is reasonable and some kind of official software release.

Thanks in advance for infos about this.

Those "install disks" would have to be specific for a certain make/model of a device, meaning many images and quite a lot of work indeed.

There already exist community ports for about 30 different devices or so, if your tablet exists on the following list, then you can do it: https://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Adaptations/libhybris

…And there may be some legal issues with device manufacturers (licensing etc.) if Jolla would try to sell those images.
