It took a long time before we delivered the previous update (2.0.2). Our goal now is to start providing updates in shorter intervals.

This update, 2.0.4 alias Fiskarsinjoki, introduces quite a few new features and bug fixes. One of the key new features is the option to save pictures and videos directly from the camera to the memory card. This helps to keep the Phone Memory from getting cluttered and in good shape. Another long-awaited new feature being introduced is conference calling. You can now rotate the device to landscape in Calculator to access the new scientific mode with support for high-precision, brackets and trigonometric and exponential operations. And, you can use Gallery edit options to adjust brightness and contrast of photos. You can also launch the synchronization of Calendar in the app itself, and share files from the File manager of Storage page (in Settings). Last but not least, we have upgraded the Browser engine.

Thank you for your valuable feedback!

Upgrade version history

  • 2016-10-05: Early access release
  • 2016-10-19: Early access release #2. Fixed memory leaks in Tracker and call creation with Bluetooth car kit.
  • 2016-10-24: Roll out to Jolla 1, Jolla C and Jolla Tablet.

Release Highlights

This list contains examples of new features (and some bug fixes) added to SailfishOS since the 2.0.2 release.

3rd party apps

  • HERE WeGo app (formerly known as Here maps app) updated in Jolla Store.


  • Credentials of Jolla account dropped from backup data because the access token is used to identify the device in Jolla Store backend. Restoring the backup to different devices would then cause confusion.


  • [Aqua Fish] Origami, Party, Sailing and Work included in the preloaded customer content.



  • We have made the utility more robust. It should work reliably with different SD cards now, and allow spaces in filenames.


  • Reliability of Bluetooth audio operations with car audio systems improved.

  • Youtube full screen mode works correctly now.
  • Small corrections to rendering web page content.


  • Added possibility to trigger synchronization manually from calendar pull menu.
  • A line showing current time added to day view.
  • Remorse timer added to events opened from alarm dialog.
  • Fixed issues of calendar widget in events view not showing.


  • Turn device to landscape in Calculator app to access the new scientific mode with support for high-precision, brackets and operations like sin, cos, tan, log, !, square and power.


  • Make picture names more unique by adding also time to the filename, so that pictures from different devices would not clash when uploading to a cloud service.
  • Re-opening Camera starts it in viewfinder mode.
  • Camera application in the background goes back to viewfinder mode after some time.
  • Saving creation time and date to EXIF data of photos fixed (https://together.jolla.com/question/110063/creation-date-not-saved-in-photo-exif-metadata-11928/ ).
  • Settings overlay doesn't hide when clicking inside button column.

Developer mode

  • Developer mode now includes libraries needed to debug and profile C++ and QML application code with Sailfish SDK.


  • Stability fixes.
  • Document can be zoomed more due to partial rendering capability - contributed by Damien Caliste among bug fixes.


  • More information about attachments shown, for instance to avoid downloading big ones over slow connections.
  • Attachments show mime-specific icon.
  • Document picker is no longer limited to documents in Documents folder, but e.g. also shows documents downloaded with Browser to Downloads folder.
  • Fix to ensure successfully entering the sleep mode between sync sessions.
  • Gallery editing options allow adjusting brightness and contrast of the photo.
  • Gallery editing now supports multiple picture formats (e.g. PNG, BMP, etc.) and not only JPG.

Home and Lock screen

  • Notification highlight made work correctly.
  • Ensure that Power key locks the screen also when applied right after a phone call.

Input and keyboard

  • Usability improvements and some other fixes to Kazakh, Czech, Finnish, Swedish, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, French and Danish keyboards.
  • Issue with paste button popup on split keyboard fixed.


  • Support for Mozilla Location Services finalised



  • Improvements to opening various MMS attachments.


  • Notes now returns to the text view correctly after changing text color of a new note.

For detailed changelog, see https://together.jolla.com/question/146274/changelog-204fiskarsinjoki/

Updating your device

Your device must be connected to the Internet and signed in to your Jolla account. If your Jolla account is registered for Early Access releases you should receive an OS update notification when an update is available. If you have decided not to take the Early Access registration then you will get the OS update typically one week later.

We warmly recommend making some 3-4 GB of free space to the internal storage of your device before starting the update. Move your pictures and videos to the SD card (or to your PC or cloud service). After the upgrade turn on the option to save pictures and videos directly from the camera to the memory card (Settings > Apps > Camera). This is important particularly in case of "Jolla 1" devices (product name "Jolla" in Settings > About product).

This is the usual drill before attempting to update your devices:

  • If you use Phonehook from OpenRepos, uninstall it before upgrading.
  • If you use oFono from OpenRepos, revert to the official oFono before upgrading (or else you may face problems with LTE etc.).
  • If you use Patchmanager, revert all applied patches before upgrading.

Take a backup of your data before attempting to update your device and save the backup to an SD card or to some other off-device location (PC, your cloud service). Note that videos and images are not included in cloud-based backups. Do not reboot the device while the update is in progress. Do keep the phone connected to a battery charger during the whole process. 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.

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

Known issues

  • Editing a picture (in Gallery) of aspect ratio 4:3 on Jolla1 tends to crash the app. Please use ratio 16:9 for now (change in Settings > Apps > Camera). Will be fixed to the next release.
  • We recommend taking a backup of your data before seeking for OS update. This is because the backup option in the Sailfish OS update dialog tends to stall in some cases (after which the device must be rebooted). Backup works okay if initiated from Settings > Backup. In any case, make sure there is plenty of space in the card.
  • Backup/restore can fail if jolla-email is not installed, due to an invalid assumption in the restore code. If you have difficulty in restoring a previous backup, please ensure that jolla-email is installed, and try again.
  • If you have multiple Jolla C devices and backed them up to a cloud service, then in this case it may be difficult to select the wanted backup to be restored. Consider deleting the unwanted backups from the cloud (or moving them to another cloud folder temporarily) and then try again to restore.
  • Very rarely Jolla tablet fails to boot to the home screen after update. Workaround it is to reboot the device.
  • Rarely the pulley menu gets stuck on Jolla. Workaround is to swipe to enter home, and then go back to app and now the pulley menu should work again.
  • Currently the backup and restore operations are limited to the size of the /tmp partition, which is typically around 1GB when empty. If this condition is not met, the backup operation creates an erroneous backup, or the restore operation fails to restore the backup correctly. A fix is underway for this, but in the meantime, you can clear the contents of /tmp before doing a backup or restore to maximize the available space. Do it easily in Settings > Utilities > Clear backup storage. If you have very large files that cannot be well compressed (e.g. videos) or a sizeable collection of large files (e.g. photos) that will cause the /tmp limit to be exceeded, move these to the memory card or some other off-device location before starting the backup/restore. Note that videos and images are not included in cloud-based backups so this is predominantly an issue for memory card backup/restore operations.

Following update suggestion (remove photos and videos on internal storage before updating Jolla 1), I found myself with no more photos on SD card. This is what I did:

  • Moved Pictures/Camera and Videos/Camera folders from internal storage to SD (same folder structure)
  • Updated Jolla 1 (no problem here)
  • After updating, I changed Camera settings to store photos on SD card

This ended up with an empty SD/Pictures folder.

Just be warned to move photos to a different location.

Many thanks for your report and sorry for your photos

I had them in a backup, so I could easily restore them, but thanks nonetheless. :)

magullo ( 2016-10-06 14:39:48 +0300 )edit

good. i understood that you might definitively loosed them, and don't want to explicitly ask if you did a backup (sensible theme if not done...). fine ;-)

cemoi71 ( 2016-10-06 18:00:45 +0300 )edit

Ahah, thanks for trying, I first moved them keeping the same structure too, imagining that this scenario was too obvious for not having been tested. But since we don't know if there is a QA anymore, I renamed it afterwards. I worth a separate bug report IMO.

Settings>Storage shows the internal memory twice user data and system data. That doesn't make sense.
I hope it is not releated to BTRFS, it seems like to make everything more complicated and difficult than with EXT4 or XFS :p

// edit
Should look like this:

It also shows that "Android files" takes huge space (5.6 out of 6.6GB), which I think is not accurate... All this is a bit confusing indeed.

Sthocs ( 2016-10-06 02:13:32 +0300 )edit

@hoschi: You are right that the issue in the Storage menu of Jolla1 is related to BTRFS. There is no separate partitions for user data and system data on this device. Both of them reserve storage space from the same pool. That is why the Storage menu may look odd. Anyway, it is like intended.

jovirkku ( 2016-10-07 13:54:08 +0300 )edit

Oh. This really awkward for people who aren't aware about the internals of BTRFS and assume such a behaviour. If I can recommend a solution:
Just remove "user data" or "system data", showing both is physically wrong, bascially it tells twice used and twice free space than available. Taken from the screen, my phone has still 16.8 GB of free memory...there are only 16 GB.

hoschi ( 2016-10-10 14:57:35 +0300 )edit

@jovirkku: technically you are right. But the normal user doesn't know anything about BTRFS and is confused. @hoschi proposal looks good to me.

axaq ( 2016-10-10 23:48:27 +0300 )edit

Reported thanks. The settings page used to show only one internal partition "mass storage" for Jolla 1. This is regression caused that went unnoticed before early access.

I managed to not make the Update quit on me after about 3% with an "update failed - try again later" disclaimer by resetting the app registry with sailfish utilites - but now it's stuck at 50% for about 40 minutes already. What can I do? Pull the plug and risk a broken OS?

I unapplied any patches, disabled some critical openrepos repositories and had about 5.5GB free and a balanced BTRFS.

Any clue on what could cause such hickups?

Thanks for the massive update!

Update is Not available in my Aqua Fish ,It is showing up to date , Please Help, I am waitng for 2weeks for these updates

I had the same problem, phone was practically unuseable. Fixed via this link. Which essentially is: Boot the phone into recovery mode, telnet in, start a shell, do mount -o subvolid=0 /dev/mmcblk0p28 /mnt/, go into @home and delete all your large media files, umount /dev/mmcblk0p28. Reboot phone, fixed problem. Was able to optimize and update after that.

tetris11 ( 2016-10-05 22:53:42 +0300 )edit

Thank you for the hint. However the reason was not a lack of space for balancing BTRFS. I managed to update by taking out the battery. Luckily the phone booted and reoffered the update (this time 120mb instead of the full size) It went through properly this time.

@p_pahare: Updates to partner devices (like Aqua Fish) are distributed once our partner's quality assurance has approved it. Our aim is to have the public software update available to all devices at the same time. Early access is unfortunately not available for partner devices.

1) After the update Sailfish Utilities didn't open, I had to uninstall - install it from store. 2) After the update in Store app, going from pulley menu to "My Apps" shows only empty list of apps, how to fix that? Fixing app registry from Sailfish Utilities didn't help.

Ok, I got it fixed. I I tried this: https://together.jolla.com/question/105220/since-update-to-117-my-apps-empty-in-jolla-store-app/ and this: https://together.jolla.com/question/7988/problem-with-store-unable-to-install/?answer=37218 but finally after re-entering login information into Jolla account made it to work... It didn't show any errors that I would have had an issue with Jolla account.

since SailfishOS uses the telepathy framework, OMEMO must be implemented there first, see: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=93090

Since this update I am having trouble sending longer sms. I get "Cannot send SMS to (nr)". Sometimes I manage to send it after a lot of retries. This is very annoying!

If it has to do with the operator, I'm in Norway and I am using the Telenor network.

How long SMS you send? I send regularly 600 character SMS. Maybe this will be bad update for me too? I'm still on

alloj ( 2016-10-21 08:44:00 +0300 )edit

Not really sure, but 600-ish sounds about right. Not so sure this is a general problem though, I'd expect a lot more complaints if everybody had this. I am guessing it's something to do with the combination Jolla & Telenor.
