Does someone know, whether and when Intex will offer an update for Aqua Fish. They offer the update usually with a delay, but it seems to be rather long for Sailfish OS 2.2.0. Maybe someone of Jolla is reading this question, who has contact to their - at least former - partner.

I thought Intex has discontinued AquaFish.

And wasn' there some lawsuit that prevented them selling any phones, regarding some trademark issue with some competitor...?

I would be surprised if they still are in the business.

why wait for the update when u can enable developer mode, use terminal and voila. show int@x the middle finger.

Thanks for all recommendations.

@juiceme Intex offered the last official release Lapuanjoki. That’s why I expect, that Intex will offer the recent update Mouhijoki,

@hardy_magnus Sounds good. How? I can only see the option for developer rleases in the settings, but I would need a username and password and a SSU domain. You mention terminal. Should I establish a SSH session and use a terminal command for the update? It’s my productive phone, so I don’t want to break it.

If would be nice, if someone of Jolla could say something about the partnership of Intex and their support of their Sailfish OS device.

jsommer: updates for AquaFish are always delayed compared to original Jolla hw-s. Sometimes only a few days, sometimes months, but sooner or later it comes (at least it was like this until now).

@jsommer: pal, updating fish through terminal is very easy. 1) enable developer mode in settings. donot enable developer updates because it requires username and password. 2) then enable remote connection and set root password in the developer section in settings. 3) after enabling developer mode you will get terminal in your device, now open it and you are 3 commands away from the update. 4) open terminal then ” devel -su”. give the root password. 5) ”ssu re” 6) ”version --dup” incase any of this doesnot make sense then open the link

the method is safe. good luck.

Convert your Aqua Fish to Jolla C and update to latest version OS. You'll find some nice methods on this forum and unless you like the preinstalled Aqua Fish softwares, there is no disadvantage.

i won't recommend this, this could cause problems. using terminal to update is the safer way and through settings is the safest.

My Intex runs just fine as a Jolla C since 1.5 year.

Thanks for each response. I appreciate the community support.

@danfin I tried to convert my Aqua Fish to a Jolla C two times. Unfortunately the conversion failed and the system was broken, that I had to recover the phone. The scripts, that are published on this forum can only be used for an old version of Sailfish OS, that was originally shipped with the first batch of Aqua Fish phones.

@jsommer I converted to Jolla C within the last month, the first stage with the scripts failed, I didn't notice anything obvious broken but didn't look hard. I just went on to the next stage, replacing the Intex factory image with modified Jolla C factory image, then recovered which did the job, obviously you have to deal with setting your phone up again from scratch unlike the script method, but at least you can still convert to Jolla C.
