There are now many community port that work (I have a fairphone and I'm happy with it.), more than official phone. https://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Adaptations/libhybris But the main problem is that there is no ommercial components. My idea is : Can jolla sell the alien dalvik registered customers, who paid for aliend dalvik and / or other commercial components like Exchange Activesync or XT9 from Jolla Store.
strengthening the link with the community.
Make earn money to Jolla (and I think Jolla need money)
Increase the number of user / developer
Return jolla independent of the manufacturer
Allow the community to have one more wide selection of device
It's a truly unlike way of make business
