After some experimentation I am left with a system that seems to up-to-date the user-space (4.1.0), but the kernel from the recover image:

~ $ uname -a
Linux jolla #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Nov 18 03:00:49 UTC 2013 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux

I guess I am lucky I can still access the phone over WLAN, but the UI is not working at all.

How do I force a re-installation of the current kernel version?

It seems that kernel-adaptation-sbj contains the image, but pkcon install kernel-adaptation-sbj does not work; it does not seem to know about this package.

So where would I find the rpm for kernel-adaptation-sbj- If someone can provide me a copy, that’d be great.

The jolla-customer and adaption0 package repositories are currently not working on my phone, it seems. This might be related.

@nomeatapkcon search name kernel-adaptation yields 2 results.

Perhaps to try pkcon refresh and see if the missing parts of your system are 'picked up'.

I reinstalled since then. My problem was that the repository sources that require authentication were not working.
