This update, nicknamed Mouhijoki, introduces a new simpler single item view in Gallery and Camera app, adds fingerprint unlock support and emoji keyboard layout 😎👍👏. VPN and MDM have become more robust. Android Support has been updated for Xperia X and Jolla C devices. There are several improvements for Email app. Remorse timers can be swiped away to commit immediately. We have dropped continuous focus from Xperia X camera - the camera stays out of focus when it starts until you either tap or try to take a shot - but the pictures seem to be better focused now. Last but not least Sailfish X now officially supports the Xperia X dual SIM phone (F5122).

Many thanks to you our active contributors for your feedback and proposals!

Issues reported by the community at and fixed in this update


For detailed changelog, see

Updating your device

Your device must be connected to the Internet and signed into your Jolla account. If your Jolla account is registered for Early Access releases you should receive an OS update notification when an update is available. If you have decided not to take the Early Access registration then you will get the OS update typically one week later.

We warmly recommend making some 3-4 GB of free space to the internal storage of your device before starting the update. Move your pictures and videos to the SD card (or to your PC or cloud service). After the upgrade turn on the option to save pictures and videos directly from the camera to the memory card (Settings > Apps > Camera). This is important particularly in case of "Jolla Phone" devices (product name "Jolla" in Settings > About product).

If you have a Sony Xperia X dual SIM device(model F5122) running Sailfish X already, please install the first official F5122 image (update by "flashing" the device - see chapter 6 in You can download this F5122 image from . Sign in with your Jolla account you used for purchasing the Sailfish X license.

This is the usual drill before attempting to update your devices:

Take a backup of your data before attempting to update your device and save the backup to an SD card or to some other off-device location (PC, your cloud service). Note that videos and images are not included in cloud-based backups. Do not reboot the device while the update is in progress. Do keep the phone connected to a battery charger during the whole process. Device screen may blank out during the update process; you may waken the display by a short press on the power key to monitor the progress.

For detailed instructions on updating software, visit Zendesk:

Notification concerning apps from Open Repos

  • If you use Phonehook or Callrecorder from OpenRepos, uninstall it before upgrading
  • If you use oFono from OpenRepos, revert to the official oFono before upgrading
  • If you use Patchmanager, revert all applied patches before upgrading.

About SD cards

New path to sdcard: Symbolic link /media/sdcard/<uuid>/, actual path /run/media/nemo/<uuid>/
Please read our help article on SD cards supported by Sailfish OS:
Please update your File Browser app to version 1.7.2 (Jolla Store).

Known issues

  • Please do not install Aptoide Store before Android Support as this may prevent installing the latter. Should this happen, fix the issue as follows: devel-su; pkcon remove apkd-config-default; pkcon refresh . Then install Android Support.
  • Bluetooth pairing and audio connections may still fail in some circumstances.
  • Trouble with signing in to Dropbox account sometimes.
  • Events View has been reported to remain empty in some cases.
  • Jolla Phone: clock alert is only played via headphones (if connected) - not at all via loudspeaker. This audio routing error may cause other sound-related problems, too. Apologies. Will be fixed to release 2.2.1.

Known issues specific to Xperia X

  • There are few observations (being investigated) where mobile data cannot be easily turned on after device restart. In such a case force the device to Flight Mode momentarily and back to normal mode. This will reset the modem.
  • [camera] Force autofocus mode for photos, and continuous for video. After this, camera focus is still not ideal - as the camera stays out of focus when it starts until you either tap or try to take a shot - but the pictures seem to be better focused now.
  • Issues with mobile data persist on some SIM cards. Reverting the device to Android and re-installing Sailfish X has helped. See our support article:
  • Xperia X does not power up when alarm time has elapsed.
  • Manual network/carrier search lists all networks by the same name (the name of the SIM provider). Use automatic search. If not possible, you need to try several items in the manual search results, unfortunately. The top most item is not necessarily the one that can serve you (still valid with most SIM cards).
  • Bluetooth: Still problems with car equipment, some audio devices and computers.
  • Waking up the device by double-tap does not work.
  • Loudspeaker volume level cannot be adjusted high enough (but echo cancellation was added to the audio path in 2.1.4).
  • Sensors:
    • Not working: barometer, step counter.
    • Compass working in Google Maps, not yet natively.
  • Issues with video playback and video recording (less than before).
  • FM radio missing.
  • Even though all CPU cores get eventually enabled, foreground apps do not always run on the big cores.

Is there specific reason for the download being so slow on Jolla 1, C and Tablet?

Updated Sailfish X and Jolla1, no problems (updated after 18:45 EET). Thank you! :)

My JollaC had duplicate media items in the gallery. After triggering a reindex, the dups were gone again.

The camera complained that the external memory was unavailable. After reselecting the SD card, the issue was gone.

I haven't found other issues yet. Thanks a lot for the great work! :)

@olf, there is no reason for that comma after 'notified', and no reason to lengthen 'don't' into 'do not'.

I don't know if I did something but here the link was working before update but wrong after (see last slash at the bottom of comment) so I had to recreate it:

Bug report: After the update the first app I tried to open was Gallery. First two times it failed to start: Cover page load animation was shown for about 5-10 seconds and the app crashed and killed itself. On the third try Gallery started with no problems and I haven't encoutered any problems using it.

Good job with the new Gallery view.

Great work! Jolla, keep it up, you guys are amazing.

I can see that the update has been made available to all users today, but I have also noticed the prominent threads pertaining to Bluetooth issues have yet to be addressed.

Not a single one of those has been answered, and as a daily Bluetooth user, my updating my device is crucially linked to these questions, especially the first one, sound not being routed through Bluetooth headsets is an unacceptable setback for me unfortunately. So could you please be kind enough to address my questions so I can update my Jolla 1 and follow the moving train? Merely some confirmation that these issues have been fixed would go a long way as well. I use Jolla 1 + Apple Airpods.

Thanks a lot in anticipation.

I have problems updating my JollaC (former Intex ) I always end up with the message: Update cannot be performed please try again later. All patches are turned off, but it is still stuck there and after restarting nothing changes I get the error again with the next try.

I already tried pkcon refresh but I didnt do version --dup since I wanted to try the official way. I uninstalled phonehook but also this didnt help. What else can I try?

Sorry, no solution. Just wanted add, that I have the exact same problem over here.

fl0rp ( 2018-06-08 10:30:25 +0200 )edit

@fl0rp I did what the others did: using version --dup I forced the update via terminal thenI had to do the steps described here to get the update message away:

now everything looks normal/ok

Thanks for sharing @PatsJolla!

The puristic approach: Backup, factory reset, install update, load backup. I know it comes with some work of configuring the phone again, but it's also a chance for a general cleanup. ;)

After "version --dup" i view following error. Error: cannot install both pattern:jolla-configuration-sbj-0.12.3-1.4.8.noarch and pattern:jolla-configuration-sbj-0.12.3-1.4.8

I'm also affected by this. Does anyone have a workaround?

asgeirr ( 2018-06-10 17:05:00 +0200 )edit

Most likely you have added some extra code repositories to your device.
Run the command ssu lr . If section "Enabled repositories (user)" in the printout has something else but "store", then consider removing them with command ssu rr <short-name> where <short-name> is the name of the repository (just like "store").

Version --dup should work now.</short-name>

Make sure to have third party keyboards disabled (okboard for example is known to produce that sound issue with keypresses)

Progress indicator for attachment of a mail to send.
@jovirkku i'm not an early access, and i saw that there is a lot's of improvement for email.
I have a question or request about the app.
In condition to send a mail with huge attachments, then the upload time for could be so slow (depends on the mail provider maybe).
Would it be possible to have the same feature as for downloading attachment with progress indicator?
Because i feel that it's a little bit inconsistent at this point.
After the act to join the attachment, the app seems to be ready to send pretty fast. And i know that it need a long time. If we do the sending then, the app crashs.

That's the problem on my jp1 with v2.1.4.14 Please see on this thread:

edit flag offensive delete publish link more


It is better to transmit "huge attachments" by first uploading them to a cloud service and then send only the link in an email message. Many email service providers set a limit to the size of attatchments - it can be as low as 5 to 10 MB.

jovirkku ( 2018-06-04 10:36:26 +0200 )edit

happened the same with data around 5mb yeah... would be always better. super you provide such a service with care of private sphere?
what i don't understand is, i try to explain that it works under computer, but something slow. not on the because user (here me) fall in a trap because don't understand what's happened in background. i see that the dev team is ready to deploy a great function for the attachment download.but don't do it for the upload. that's not that bad. i must not understand the dev strategy. bring up functions step by step in small parts is good, secure. but if i ask if it's possible to have it one day, and i get an answer which is not in topic. without asking for further details, or send to an other collegue. i'm ready to test some other things, give logs or i don't know what... you could tell that you're not the right one for this, or you give the info further, or that's not interesting because of explained purposes, or maybe wait for it, it comes one day. where is the best place to ask for it?

cemoi71 ( 2018-06-04 17:54:42 +0200 )edit

or give own observation?

cemoi71 ( 2018-06-04 17:55:48 +0200 )edit

by the way, currently before speacking further about fix or alternative, i would like to have tipps on how i may delete the duplicate media data properly. in the mentioned thread ii get some info, found the attachments but not the mail files... please that's for me now more important

cemoi71 ( 2018-06-04 18:20:56 +0200 )edit

@cemoi71: The best way to propose new features is to file them here in t.j.c as separate posts and tag them as "feature-request". In that way they are easier to find (compared to these comments on the n'th page) by everyone, and to vote for them. Thanks.
