Sailfish on Nexus 4 [answered]

Hi, I need little help with few problems with my Nexus 4 Sailfish

1) not important, but USB mass storage mode is not working

2) bluetooth is not working - there is no quick action to turn it on or off, in setting > bluetooth tells me that bluetooth is not available

3) everything related with GPS is not working - I tried some android apps like Sygic, Navfree and OSMand, gpsinfo tells me that some sattelites have fixed signal, but it is not showing longitude/latitude etc. and those apps still are just searching signal, but will never find.

I think it won´t be a hardware problem, because I have dualboot with android 5 and there is everything working ok.

Can you help me please?

Nexus 4 port is one of the better ones, but not everything is working - this includes USB mass storage mode.

For Bluetooth try: pkcon install bluez and reboot.

GPS issues could be because unofficial ports don't include proprietary software for assisted GPS - even though ported devices should be using Mozilla Location Services afaik. So it can take a while until you get a GPS lock... I'm not a Sfos porter, but I also used it on a Nexus 4.

I have the same issues with my Nexus 4. I never looked into the issue, though. So not that it helps, but at least know others have the issue. I need to reinstall it, but I think I'm gonna install and that has bluetooth and gps working.
