I assume that officially they can't do it because of certification and stuff. However i assume you can install it. No idea what problems you are going to face. Most likely not much.

it wont run, not even nearly.

not without backporting the whole bluetooth subsystem in the kernel

i was under the impression that sfos wasn't using different kernels for each phone. Anyway. TIL

what on earth gave you that impression? because its completely wrong :)

@r0kk3rz Nothing in particular. Was thinking of SFOS as a normal distro with HW adaptation bits changing and only that.

I would not recommend to update to Bluez5. Read about Bluetooth problems on Xoeria X e.g. here.

My Jolla is perfectly working with Lancia Delta (Blue&Me) and Fiat 500L (Uconnect), with Xperia X there is a bunch of problems.

those problems have little if anything to do with bluez5...
