Upgrading your devices

This is the usual drill before attempting to upgrade your devices,

  • If you use Phonehook from OpenRepos, uninstall it before upgrading.
  • If you use Patchmanager, revert all applied patches before upgrading.
  • Take a backup of your data before attempting to upgrade your device. A successful backup operation is indicated by a green dot in the UI.
  • Do not reboot the device while the update is in progress.
  • The device screen may blank out during the update process, you may waken the display by a short press on the power key to monitor the progress.
  • Do keep the phone connected to a battery charger during the whole process.

For detailed instructions on updating software, visit Zendesk [ https://jolla.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/201836347 ].

If connected to the internet, and your account is subscribed for Early Access releases, your Jolla device should receive an OS update notification shortly.

Known issues

  • Google contact sync may sometimes hang up and drain the battery
  • PC connection mode (MTP) does not work with Windows 10 in all cases
  • In some cases pending updates for store applications or applications installed from 3rd party repositories may block the system update. Installing the application updates first should fix this.

soo finishes the Update still works fine except...

there is one big issue (for me): this "uggly" new Button that directs to the Eventview Configuration. Why? or more important: is there a way to remove it? As one now have to swipe down even more to open the shortcuts.

is this update available for ported devices also?

Since last update, wav files are no longer indexed. Old wav and flac files are indexed and playable.

This is for Jolla employee. I hope you shall read this. When I and many other people can get working flashlight and cameralight to our phones? I mean that light doesn't work at all. I really hope that you shall make it as a hotfix. I'm still wating for it . It's embarrassing to tell other that our Jolla has that simple failure. And it's important, too. Please, fix it.

Edit for other Jolla together users: please don't vote +1 or -1. This is not a joke, nor is this or not relevant in your opinion. This is just a request for Jolla emloyee.

its working. perhaps your hardware is not working? you should open a new thread for that problem

mettska ( 2016-01-21 07:45:01 +0300 )edit

Er ... the Flashlight app from the Jolla store works fine here.

strongm ( 2016-01-21 10:19:55 +0300 )edit

I can confirm that both the flash when taking photos and the flash-light app from the Jolla store both work following the upgrade on my device.

timearp ( 2016-01-21 11:07:23 +0300 )edit

@ari.jarvio not working flashlight at all is something for Care-> open a ticket please https://jolla.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

Also the torch shortcut for eventsview is working still perfect after the update - must be your phone not the OS...

till now there is no problem, but only problem is with browser unable to download any files this problem is from earlier version, and unable to find option to format sd card

edit flag offensive delete publish link more


As far as SD card formatting is concerned, this was just a mistake in initial draft of release announcement.

As far as download in browser is concerned, in my experience it's more or less working, but (i) download is completely silent, (ii) all downloads are named "download(x).html"
