SFOS2 on XA2 possible? [answered]

Hallo, I've bought an Xperia XA2 some days ago and I want to try Sailfish OS even before the official release of SFOS3 in 2018-Q3. Is it possible to install SFOS2 on my XA2 already? And if it is, is there any instruction available?

Bonus question: I have a pending refund for the tablet - will it be usable for a licence similar to Sailfish X, maybe even the same?

Thanks in advance! drohhyn

No it's not possible yet to install Sailfish OS on the Xperia XA2 - so you probably will have to wait for the official release. With the appropriate knowledge it's of course possible to create your own port, following the HADK guide: https://sailfishos.org/develop/hadk/

If helpful, here's a link to a list of all available Sailfish OS community ports: https://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Adaptations/libhybris

There are no details available about the purchasing methods for the XA2 image. I assume it will be similar to how it was with the Xperia X image.

See first answer here - https://together.jolla.com/question/183153/how-i-install-sailfishos-on-gt-s6102/ I havr seen speculation about other devices besides X being officially added at some point, but not sure how real that is, or when anyone thinks might be... Don't know anyanything about X licenses.
