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!

Update version history

  • 2018-05-31: was released to Early Access subscribers (Jolla devices and Xperia). The flashable image of F5122 is not yet available in the download repository.
  • 2018-06-07: was released to all Jolla customers having the following devices: Jolla1, Jolla C, Jolla Tablet, Xperia X (f5121 and f5122). Installable images for Xperia X devices are available at https://shop.jolla.com/downloads/ .

Size of update

The download size of the update depends on the device type and on the OS version currently in the device. Some typical values below:
- Jolla 1 from to 2.2.0: about 300 MB
- Jolla C from to 2.2.0: about 400 MB
- Xperia X from to 2.2.0: about 350 MB

NOTE: The download to Jolla 1, Jolla C and Jolla Tablet is known to be slow. Be patient and keep your device connected to a charger.

Release Highlights

This list contains examples of new features (and some bug fixes) added to SailfishOS compared to the previous release 2.1.4. The release notes of 2.1.4 can be found here: https://together.jolla.com/question/179223/release-notes-214-lapuanjoki/

Mouhijoki 2.2.0 adds the support for Sony Xperia X dual-SIM (model: F5122). Hence Sailfish X can be installed to this device, too. Renewed instructions for installing Sailfish OS to Sony Xperia X devices are here - covering Windows, Linux and Mac computers. The same instructions are valid for F5121 and F5122, however, there is a dedicated flashable image for each device model.

NOTE: If you have a Sony Xperia X dual SIM device (model F5122) running Sailfish X already, please install the official F5122 image of this update (by "flashing" the device - see chapter 6 in https://jolla.com/sailfishxinstall/). Do not try to update your device over-the-air, as your existing device software was never meant to be used in F5122 devices. 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 https://shop.jolla.com/downloads/ . Sign in with your Jolla account you used or purchasing the Sailfish X license.

Issues reported by the community at together.jolla.com and fixed in this update


For detailed changelog, see https://together.jolla.com/question/184470/changelog-220-mouhijoki/

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 https://jolla.com/sailfishxinstall/. You can download this F5122 image from https://shop.jolla.com/downloads/ . 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: https://jolla.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/201836347

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: https://jolla.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/201997993.
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: https://jolla.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115004283713
  • 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 +0300 )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 +0300 )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 +0300 )edit

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

Okay, slow it is then, but only 19mb(home WiFi) in 2 days?, what kind of 'slow' is this?, grass grows quicker! :D

Note: My network is in fine fettle, my laptop, my mother's iPad and Samsung phone are all connected to the wifi and have good upload/download speeds......yet, my original J1 downloaded 400mb in a matter of seconds??, none of this makes any sense to me,

The download should work as expected now on June 18th. It may last 1.5 hours in case of JollaC, updated from, even with an Internet speed of 10 Mbit/s.

Is it not being released to Intex Aqua Fish?

edit flag offensive delete publish link more



Intex is responsible for updating the Aqua Fish, unfortunately you will have to wait until they release the update. You can also unofficially 'convert' the Aqua Fish to a Jolla C, which means you can receive the updates at the same time as other Sailfish users. If you're interested, you can follow the guide over here: https://together.jolla.com/question/148893/how-to-make-aqua-fish-to-think-its-jolla-c-not-modem/

nthn ( 2018-06-07 22:26:04 +0300 )edit

this is also what i would highly recommend you ...you are then completely independent from Intex and much closer to Jolla, so far I didn't even see a good reason to stay with the initial firmware. If you follow the instructions carefully it should take around 1 hour to change the phone.

PatsJolla ( 2018-06-08 09:23:13 +0300 )edit

@"Pats Jolla", @nthn - Thank you! I didn't know I could do that kind of conversion. For the update issue, Aqua Fish was mentioned in previous update release notes as you can see here: https://together.jolla.com/question/179223/release-notes-214-lapuanjoki-released/#179223-update-version-history I got that update the very same day after announcement by Jolla. That's what made me think that updates are controlled by Jolla. Is that not the case? If it first had to go to Intex, I think it would have been minimum a week before I could get the update.

addydon ( 2018-06-09 05:51:11 +0300 )edit

@addydon: We have still not received the permission from Intex to roll out for Aqua Fish devices. The roll out itself is quick.

I needed a version --dup (because of the upgrade problem...) And now I cannot remove the "system upgrade available" message in Events view. Is there any recipe to get it away (yes, I know, that seems to be an old prob).

edit flag offensive delete publish link more



See this thread (also the comments if you want to force remove the notification) https://together.jolla.com/question/112217/persistent-update-notification/

leszek ( 2018-06-01 15:57:57 +0300 )edit

Not sure if it's really the same problem.

I too went the version --dup way after the normal update didn't run trough and have now the system upgrade message stuck. The Updater seems unable to connect to check for updates. When I start the Updater and look in the journal (cournalctl -xa) I see the following messages:

Sailfish [6101]: [D] unknown:0 - System update already in progress. Check request ignored.

and several minutes later

Sailfish [6101]: [D] unknown:0 - -- quiting, inactivity timer expired

Sailfish [6101]: [D] unknown:0 - telling PackageKit daemon to quit

Sailfish PackageKit[6115]: daemon quit

Sailfish estart[4296]: [D] unknown:0 - Update check timed out!

The time of the last sucessfull check for updates stays the time from before the update to To me it looks as if the updater doesn't check anything because he believes to be in the middle of an update. There is probably an lockfile of some parameter still set after the faile first update with the updater that wasn't reset properly when we went the version --dup way.

Sadly I don't know what exactly is stuck.

removing /home/nemo/.local/share/system/privileged/Notifications/notifications.db only removes the notification till the next time I check for an Update. After that The problem is exactly the same as described earlier.

I also have problem with update on all my devices (Jolla 1, C and tablet)…
From terminal:

Fatal error: File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium 'https://store-repository.jolla.com/releases/'

and from setting:

"Problem with store: Could not determine size of update"

Any idea how to fix and update my devices ?

I'm not sure if this is correct procedure, but first you can (temporally) disable repository with aliendalvik via 'ssu dr aliendalvik' command and then do the upgrade. Maybe uninstall aliendalvik as very first step is recomended?? (just silly beginner thought)

flanker ( 2018-06-02 00:32:55 +0300 )edit

Thanks, already did it... Finally updated all devices, but have strange problems:
1. On Jolla 1 and C inside Settings -> Transfers I can't delete content... Not one by one and not by Clear all, it just don't do nothing...
2. On the Tablet in the Settings (under security) I don't have option "Untrusted software".
Can someone confirm?

I see in this weeks on my Jolla 1 this little problem: I don't see led notifications after a miss call and sometimes message and email notification led. I think is synchronize problem. After that, I have a little curiosity: is possible a Grayscale mode for display? I see this function on Androd and I'm interested to see this function on Sailfish

@arcadia - please try to keep your questions separate from each other. As an example, your request for gray scale display mode really should be posted as its own question/new thread.
