Hi there. I am jolla1 user since the first moment. Now I bought a xperia and the good old jolla1 will be prepared for my doughter as her first smartphone. "All my friends have snapchat!!" is her only demand... So I am working on it and trying to simulate google play services with microG to get snapchat running. To get clean and slim the jolla1 I am trying the snapchat install first on my xperia. BUT: on jolla1 I can find F-Droid in jolla store (to get microG) - on xperia I can not find F-Droid in Jolla store. Strange, no?

are you using official Xperia SFOS or community version?

using the official version and Android support is installed already

Use Yalp, it takes the apk's directly from Gplaystore.

OK. Now I know how to install FDroid. Thanks a lot :) I will try to get snapchat running now.

But anyway - whats the reason that on my xperia I can not find Fdroid in Jolla store but on my Jolla I can? I tried it with both accounts (SFX and my normal Jolla1 account) but can not find it in the store. Are there more apps that are "blocked" for xperia?

Only android apps you can find with Sailfish X and Xperia are android store and here maps.
