I got my JollaC today and it has quite old kernel and quite some options disabled inside the kernel. I found kernel sources for old Jolla, but not for the new one. Can you please either point me somewhere or release it?

just curious: what kernel version does jollac use?

3.10.49, current LTS version from 3.10 branch is 3.10.102 and newest LTS version is 4.4

wrong, current 3.10 is not 102. You have to look android kernels, not vanilla.

version 3.10 will be fix forever, as Qualcomm drivers are used

I was talking about the kernel, not about state some fork somewhere is in. And I'm not asking Jolla to get latest vanilla kernel in next update (not that naive), just for the sources, so I can build more stuff in and maybe do some updating as well.

The source code dumps of all Sailfish OS releases since would also be much appreciated.

Looks like code name for JollaC might be l500d - at least kernel for that device has the same version. Huge datadump contains various kernel sources, hard to figure out what belongs to what. l500d sounds promising, will give it a try later.

@miska, yes, l500d is codename for Jolla C and Aqua Fish platform.
