I just purchased my Jolla, and Im going to so much trouble with the OS update, in the first try was because I accidentaly enable developer mode, after reset to factory settings I still couldnt update the OS , and as explained before in this channels it is because I update apps before updating system.... grrr so I will be going for the second reset... I am wondering if somehow it will be possible for this kind of issues unable the Phone to get updated by the internet, or manual download from pc to Phone? maybe it will save as a lot of trouble and factory resets.... as well the internet store should have the applications we need so if they crash we can repair it in that way

Looking forward to a better solution than reset to factory settings :)

Update via host pc would be good for those with bad WIFI. In my case I was unable to add apps, update etc due to latency problems on my network, although other devices install and update happily. I simplified my net, the latency disappeared, I could activate developer mode, update, install apps etc.

The reason could come from a weak wifi router that didn't support well some wifi power mode. You could as temporary solution keep pinging in a terminal an other device to keep the network responding. That s what i do at work office.

I fully second the idea of a non-OTA update. With the quite high number of posts and reports regarding the OS update problems over all sites dealing with jolla, I believe eliminating the OTA as a possible source for a failed update is a very good idea. It will make troubleshooting much easier.
