There for it seames to be CODeRUS is not longer aktive at our boot (his patch isn´t working since last update), could it be possible that anyone take over and fix it.

BTW: @Jolla Black Launcher background sucks, why couldn´t be a transparancy option implemented as default? (Black brake the UI Experience!)

maybe you should ask @coderus. His last visit on this forum was 9 minutes ago.

My situation is that I had the launcher patch working fine, (and many others), and I ended up wiping the phone and starting from scratch, and now I get 'patch installation failed' error anytime I try to apply it, (and some other patches, but some work). I've tried unapplying all patches, disabling all repos, uninstalling all apps, etc., but never works. I tried 2 versions from coderus in 'web catalog', (seems like ancelad version is gone?), and both versions in openrepos, (coderus and thadeos, [or whatever]). I've tried with patchmanager 1, 2, and 3. I have a feeling something is screwy with system files somewhere, because there is discrepancy between what shows on my 'installed' list, (like in 'This Device' menu in Storeman, for example), and what I actually install. I think I must have installed/uninstalled/applied/unapplied some things without enabling/disabling repos properly, or something... I remember in the old WebOS, (still the best imo), there used to be ausmt recovery scripts that could check for errors, etc. Not sure if sfos has anything like that... Any ideas? - Update - Just wiped system and userdata and reflashed rom, and same result. I guess that confirms that some files have changed? Maybe patchmanager or ausmt?

Sadly this doesn't work for Sailfish, most pathes won't install via webcatalog in patchmanager
