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.

Adventage :

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

Voting to reopen - it's not very useful to close it without pointing to the duplicate.

Oops - clicked on "reopen" and it reopened it directly instead of casting a vote towards it like it works on Stack Exchange. I don't want to start a close/reopen war. Calling on to some moderator to take a decision on what to do.

Ok, I'll close it. But many question and proposal and no answer or explanation from Jolla. They can juste say, "no", "we work on it" or explain the situation and their policy. Fairphone do (https://forum.fairphone.com/t/will-sailfish-os-be-officially-supported-on-the-fp2/16839/31). Perhaps if they do it their is no more Again and again the same question. I have a JP1 since 2013 and And the comunication is always their weak point
