Hi folks,

coming from another thread where we discuss patches vs. updates (here), I wanted to start a survey which patches would make sense for upstream? -> Which patches should become part of the SFOS Settings.

There are so many good patches some that really change the usability of SFOS in a great way. So lets collect which are the most famous ones.

For those who need an overview, here are the lists of patches:
https://coderus.openrepos.net/pm2/projects/ for patches from Patchmanager's web-catalog and
https://openrepos.net/search/nod/patch for RPM patches.

Post your favorites as answer, the most upvoted I will collect here in the OP.

Edit: Now it's a wiki... :-)

TOTALLY aggre ! I just can't understand how Jolla think about updates. They never give settings to the users when new features comes, they only choose for them.

@PatsJolla I woud like to see one survery more: "which patches did you used on jolla OS 1", because it would give all an overview, how use-cases changed, so even Jolla can see how the use of the phone changed after redesign the UI complete. The patch as answer and vote if someone used it. I think there was not so heavy use of patches at all...

I'd like to vote for "Jolla should not add any more choices to the settings". Once it's an official feature, it's behaviour with each of the possible choices needs to be tested for each new software release. I'd rather not have Jolla's limited ressources be spent on this as long as more basic functionality is missing and the intended behaviour can be achieved through patches anyway.

I think this question and all answers should be labeled as community wiki. Beside this I agree with @ossi1967.

I agree with @ossi1967. That said, some features like swipe to lock were removed for no good reason, because the ambience switcher is completely useless, and it would be good to have these back. I'd just get rid of the ambience switcher altogether, but I'd already be happy with just an option to re-enable swipe to lock.

This is the best feature which has been removed with Sailfish OS 2.0. The patch and its settings are great and really should be integrated into Sailfish OS. :)

I like that patch, but it is just required because of the superfluous profile/theme-switcher. And so the patch needs to handle with both lock and theme, with and artifical threshold (awkward but genius by the developer of the patch). The important feature everyone needs is changing the volume, which is handled by the volume-buttons. The shutdown, reboot and theme menu is anyway well served by the powerbutton. Feels like the awkward profiles from the old Nokia days were ported to Jolla O_o

What does this patch actually do? I have J-C and have only ever seen SFOS v2. The OpenRepos page doesn't explain apart from 'restoring' the previous functionality.

I agree. This is a very useful patch and should be a part of sailfish launcher settings.

Mystel ( 2016-10-24 11:15:02 +0200 )edit

I think this is an essential patch. No Sailfish OS without it!

Double tap to unlock

Not a patch, but worth of a switch in the settings. So unlock to home screen directly is meant:

"mcetool -M unlock" vs. "mcetool -M show-unlock-screen"
