I realized the today that bluetooth file transfer and maybe other protocols are broken on an Intex Aqua Fish with SailfishOS Should I re-install the factory image or wait for a bug fix? Re-instllation is very time consuming, because the phone is my productive one.

My MacBook Pro doesn't show the option to sarch files on the phone. I think, it is not a problem of macOS, because the option is shown for an Android phone. I tried to solve the issue by decoupling and re-coupling my Intex Aqua Fish wihtout success. I'm also not able to use an external Keyboad although it is coupled.

I just can send files to my Intex Aqua Fish. Has anyone a suggestion for a solution?

@rowling's comment is spam!

Yes @olf, they creep on here and yet admin/moderators don't always remove them. I guess they are not a priority, as many of us will simply recognise it as spam and ignore it. In general the links are not harmful.

For all TJC users; we should click the username, then from their profile, swipe the URL and then at the bottom of each page here in TJC, click on 'give feedback' and paste the URL. I guess if enough users here do that, then admin/mods will eventually remove them....no need to shout from the roof tops or edit anything posted - just simply and quietly report it to those who are paid to do such things here on TJC.

Well, if spam is posted as an answer, the "Flag offensive" button below each answer is surely the right method to get attention / a removal: To my observations, after three users flagged an answer as offensive, it is automatically removed and subjected to moderator review.

rowling's trick here is to use a comment for spamming. And in this specific case, the link does not seem to be harmful at all.

And @Edz, it took me a while to understand your suggestion:

we should click the username, then from their profile, swipe [i.e. copy] the URL and then at the bottom of each page here in TJC, click on 'give feedback' and paste the URL.

Well, I suppose a little note (to create context), e.g. "Potential spammer:" is needed by the moderators, as this is AskBot's generic feedback form.

@olf - The advice I gave came from directly from an admin/mod.

Bluetooth file transfer is broken in sailfish then why use Bluetooth at all , use dukto app , an open source app available for every platform except sailfish. and i can't say anything about the keyboards.

Bluetooth worked well the last time. I think it was before the last official update, that was provided by Index. So I'm not sure, whether bluetooth is broken because of any update or because of any other constellation. Maybe any cache has just to be removed.

What is the ducto app doing?

you can share data among devices with dukto app just like shareit but with less features. i am using it in my linux, n900, windows 8, aqua fish. simple and easy.

This app uses the local network via WLAN or LAN over Ethernet, right?


Are you using the Android App for your Intex Aqua Fish?

jsommer ( 2017-12-17 12:07:36 +0300 )edit

i always use it through WLAN never used it in other cases . I am using it on every platform. and yes i am using android app version in my intex aqua fish.

I’ve ordered a second Sailfish device to check, whether this is an issue because of continuous using of my Intex Aqua Fish as a productive one or whether it is a bug of version Can someone confirm bluetooth problems with this or any higher release?
