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!

Flashing the device with update now will ensure that it will work fine and that upcoming over-the-air updates can be installed successfully.

The new F5122 image is available from . Sign in with your Jolla account you used or purchasing the Sailfish X license.

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?

nthn ( 2018-05-31 17:59:12 +0200 )edit

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

cheers! finally, the fingerprint scanner :D

Beethoven ( 2018-05-31 20:45:01 +0200 )edit

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! :)

gnuheidix ( 2018-05-31 22:59:32 +0200 )edit

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

In the release notes it says:


Updated Android Support of Jolla C from version 1.0.69-1 to 1.0.89-1
Updated Android Support of Xperia X from version 1.0.85-1 to 1.0.89-1

So which corresponding Android Version does this mean? is it still the same as before just better or is it a higher Version?

edit flag offensive delete publish link more



Still SDK API 19, which means Android 4.4.

magullo ( 2018-06-04 17:52:35 +0200 )edit

thank you for the answer.. in general is there a mapping table where we can check this ourselves? or a simple cmd for terminal to see the correlation?

PatsJolla ( 2018-06-04 18:36:24 +0200 )edit

grep 'version.release\|model' /opt/alien/system/build.prop

should work

dirksche ( 2018-06-04 20:17:38 +0200 )edit

@dirksche well this gives me the following output:

ro.product.model=Jolla C

but I would like to combine this with the android support version, is there a cmd for this version number too?

PatsJolla ( 2018-06-04 23:58:18 +0200 )edit

Do you know Aida64 from the Jolla Store? This tool displays a lot of information. Look under "Sailfish". Maybe you will find there what you need

Today I upgraded my Jolla Phone 1

Now system sounds are dead and Ambiances forget their custom sound I set in the Settings when rebooting or switching them. Great :(

a root partition with 2.5GB is IMO still too small (Xperia X 29GB onboard) .. this causes troubles when upgrading (not deleting old fimages , etc. ) .. in my case upgrade need 500MB free but only 468MB available - i dont like to delete locales/ambience on console just to have an upgrade running through ..

I think 4GB for System would be a better choice

great tool

Still cannot update... 4th try, freezing every time, be it from UI or per Terminal. Sad.

Have you checked if you have enough free space? 500 MB should be free at least maybe a little bit more depending on the device.

Be careful with the patches. I never had problems before, but this time I think mazelock or devicelock-faith-text or the combination of both killed my lockscreen. It is just blank and fingerprint is not recognised either. Now I have to figure out how to recover, hopefully unapplying those patches suffices.

Question: I'm using F5122 now with 2sim mod - Do I need to reflash with official 5122 image? or is the regular update enough?

edit flag offensive delete publish link more


it's a good question. I deactivated before the update coz for me the statement f5122 is now supported meant it works automatically. hope it will be part of the official release thou

Dreej ( 2018-06-01 12:41:52 +0200 )edit

There is no automatic change to the F5122 version. I have a F5122 and after the update it identified as F5121 still and only one SIM-Card was active again (I used the 2sim mod before and didn't deactivate it before the upgrade). But I found a way to apparently convert my F5121 install to the F5122 one replacing some packages. I documented it here: It seems to work, my 2 SIMs are recognized without manually changing anything and the about product dialog in Settings states "Xperia X Dual SIM" as device name. There still might be differences to flashing with the official F5122 image, which I'm not aware of. Maybe someone from Jolla can shed some light on this and if there are other things that are different between the 2 images for F5121 and F5122.

seiichiro0185 ( 2018-06-02 16:47:40 +0200 )edit

We recommend that you install upcoming official F5122 image to your F5122 devices. This ensures a known baseline to the device and compatibility with the future updates.

The installable F5122 image is expected to become available in 1-2 weeks from now.
