Hi fellow Sailors ! Recently I have bought second Xperia x For sailfish this time I have myself switched from Jolla Phone (had hardware related problem) I have bought license again and flashed with files I already Had on my computer. Then after all I updated sailfish X to and noticed some problem. When I originally flash xperia x for my mother I have added quick action to turn off dalvik (various reasons) and it works. I did the same on my Xperia X and Sailfish wont stop dalvik ! When I want to stop alien dalvik it simply gets restarted and then is still on. I cant turn it off like I did on Jolla Phone using.killdroid app or even on my moms sailfish x (she havent updated yet so I dont know if this will stop.working on her device as well) Please advise me how to make it work again :) thanks mates !

On my SailfishX on it ssems to work, at least from alien control in settings. Since last update I need to stop alien dalvik everytime it is not needed, because it causes 100% CPU usage under unkown circumstances and so a massive battery drain.

Unfortunately I can't help - just want to add that it also works for me on my Xperia X with the latest available Sailfish OS version.

Write me a path, I will try it and maybe will look for some command to set this off :( I dont know why its such a problem suddenly :/ my last try will be Jolla support I guess they will know whats going on :) edit: I have tried systemctl stop aliendalvik.service and also it gets restarted afrer a second or two ;(

@Marold, if you are using jakibaki's Patch "Back-Button Gesture for Android-Apps", you are likely experiencing this issue.

P.S.: This is fixed in "Back-Button Gesture for Android-Apps" v1.0.3 (2018-04-22).

I fixed that issue a few minutes ago and will push the new version as soon as the pm-webstore goes back online :)
