I haven't seen any updates from any Jolla officials since the XA2 images were pulled because of the issue with bootlooping that was fixed later that day using a few tweaked commands.

Is there any ETA on when we can expect the XA2 images to be back online for us to use?

In the meantime I'd like to install the old image on my own risk. Can anybody provide me the file? Please? (Yes, I know what I'm doing.)

Same here, from what I could tell the workaround for the XA2 images wasn't too bad and I'd be willing to risk buginess to try it out.

I also was unable to grab the image before being pulled and currently have a dormant XA2 purchased specifically for this. I would prefer something to work with over continuously checking the status by doing a new purchase each time (for free trial). Otherwise, an official update or time frame would be appreciated.

I also want XA2-images to available right now. This XA2 is not my only phone anyway, and it is no matter, if image is fully functional yet or not. (I have functioning Sailfish-install in Xperia X allready)

@Sorrowful_North You can go to Jolla Shop - Downloads to check if the image is available. No need to repurchase.

Coming from a person fanatically refreshing that page. :D

PS. I hate the Android keyboard.

Haha... Thank you. It'd be cool if you could do that also for the commercial version of SF3... Please... :D

Thanks for the heads up!

@enrish I wish I could provide it to you. But also I don't have it :D
