If I charge my Xperia X when powered on then all works as expected. However if I power phone off and try charging this results in phone going into endless boot loop -> device unlocked warning -> white screen with Sony logo -> home screen -> phone powers itself off and repeats cycle.

Using charger that was supplied with new Xperia. No idea if this occurred with phone running original android, installed Sailfish X straight after purchase.

Yesterday I received my X, and it was still with Android. Battery was drained (a refurbished device), and when I plugged cable and tried booting, it went in bootloop. So definitely not a Jolla problem i dare say.

If it is quickcharger, then it might be due to and should be fixed in SFOS >= 2.1.4

Something like: Device gets powered on due to the charger connect and boots up to act dead mode to charge. Then, when the device switches from regular to high voltage charging, sfos mistakenly interprets that as a charger disconnect -> in act-dead charging mode this leads to shutdown -> after which the device powers up because there is a charger connected...
