Tomorrow is D-Day for the release of SFOS on XA2 devices. Finally! My XA2 is already excited and waiting for the new OS for weeks now...

Do we really have to wait until 16:00 CET (17:00 EET) before we can start the purchasing process of Sailfish X for XA2? Or can I tell my XA2 it can expect the joyful moment earlier?

I've already ordered my XA2 and it should have arrived when I'm back home at the weekend. I hope that there are no such issues like for the X where it turned out that a lot of models are not supported (model verssion that could not be unlocked). Is there anything we should do before updating a new phone? Maybe storing the original partitions? Hasn't there been an issue with licenses?

Supply badly affected in the UK by several mobile carriers offering Single SIM version, so numerous unwanted unopened upgrades for sale upon Ebay. If this follows previous procedure with Xperia X they will all show "Bootloader unlock = No". Remember for future resale there would be need to utilise Xperifix to restore full camera functionality as no way of saving/restoring TABackup:link text

Note there are no specific Sony USB drivers for XA2, XA2 Ultra and XA2 Plus from here: link text but for XA2 Ultra needed to use Xperia_XZ2 workaround.

I used the drivers I also used for my Xperia. It worked well on my windows pc. Unlocking the bootloader was done in a blink of an eye

@voorstad It is nice to see that people are as excited as i am to see sailfish3 running on the new hardware. But how do you know that they will start to make sailfishX available for the XA2 variants already tomorrow? I just read at they want to introduce sailfish3 to the press and to the public at that date. i didn't see any word about starting the sale at that date. I just wanted to mention that, because i see so many people are disappointed here because they don't properly read the announcements.
