The installation instructions in the wiki page are the ones to be used. Fastboot method is not supported anymore for installation of Sailfish OS to Fairphone 2 and the installation should be done using TWRP recovery as instructed on the wiki page. If you already have Sailfish OS installed on your Fairphone 2 you should use the OTA update instructions to update it.

i tried "WIP Over-the-Air updates" these commands:

  • devel-su sed -i -e 's#^adaptation=.*$#adaptation=' /usr/share/ssu/repos.ini
  • ssu rr dhd
  • ssu rr extra
  • ssu ar extra$RELEASE/
  • ssu release $RELEASE
  • ssu lr**
  • ssu lr | grep openrepos
  • devel-su zypper clean -a
  • devel-su zypper ref -f
  • version --dup
  • ssu lr
  • devel-su touch /usr/share/ssu/features.d/adaptation-community.ini
  • devel-su touch /usr/share/ssu/features.d/adaptation-community-common.ini
  • ssu rr adaptation0
  • ssu rr extra
  • sync
  • poweroff

but update not completed. Maybe i am too newbie. Luckily old OS version is operating still normally...

did you do RELEASE= before running those commands?
