I have had Sailfish X freeze several times before when launching any Android app using camera like in this topic but this freeze is completely different. I was playing music on Spotify Android app and opened up a new tab on Sailfish browser when my phone completely froze. I tried pressing power button for more than 15 seconds and even the power button fails to respond. I tried to ssh to the device through WI-FI and USB but neither works. Don't know if there is some emergency key combo but after pressing volume buttons, camera button and the power button together it rebooted itself.

So, 4-buttons long press does force reboot a frozen Xperia? That's a useful finding, specially for a non removable battery device. Will try it at once.

Vol Up (first) + Power, hold for 3, 4 seconds should do this job, I found in a similar situation.

Just happened to my phone. Thank you for this key-combo.
