Hello all, I need a community help. My jolla slowly dying and I do not know what to do. It has begun few month ago with a lot of led blinking, random freezing, app crashing etc etc...

3 weeks ago I reset it to factory configuration but now it's even worse than before. I can't enable repo on open wharehouse, the app crahs and all my previous repo enable are vanished. with the madia player and QuasarMx I randomly have my music gone. this morning I would stop the weather overlay from Coderus I have done it several time it's keep comming back again and again. All apps crash ramdomly. I keep having the app library error notification even if I use the utility. One last thing the other day when when I have reset it to factory the phone generate a lot of (null) files.

Please help me, I love my phone, I just want to learn how to fix it. Thank a lot

Could you please enable developer mode (settings app -> developer mode), open a terminal, and issue:


(enter the password you configured for developer mode), then run

btrfs fi show

as well as

brtfs fi df /

and past the output of both commands here?

Also, after running those, please collect the latest system messages (also on the terminal in developer mode):

journalctl -n 1000 -m

and get back to us with the output.

All commands should be safe to run w/o side effects.

-_- I can't manage to copy message from terminal, I feel really dumb...

@Xurb an easy way to do this is to SSH into your Jolla instead of opening a terminal (you can see the IP address in Settings -> Developer Mode) and then go on from there.

Does it say 'size 13.75GiB used 13.75 GiB'? That's the important part.

Yup! you're right nthn that's what the first command line say whereas the phone say 11gigs of 13gigs... weird!
