When I booted my Jolla C this morning it displayed a Jolla licence agreement and required me to accept it. It then went through a 'new device' dialogue - did I want Android etc. - and confirmed it had set up a Jolla account! Then it required me to do the tutorial (restarting during that went back to the beginning). After all that it was back to normal - nothing apparently damaged.

This was rather alarming. I thought it had done a factory reset.

Edit 1: It installed a weather app that I never had before; presumably a default that I failed to deselect.

Edit 2: I see admin has removed the 'bug' tag. I've put it back. Or is Jolla claiming that for a phone that I have owned and used for two years and updated continuously to suddenly ask me to re-accept the licence and force me to re-run the tutorial, is not a bug?

Maybe the changed the licence agreement and you need to accept it again? In this case its not a bug...

In that case I would expect a lot of people to get this!

It could be a hardware error, though. I turned it on, plugged it in to recharge, and went to make coffee - so I wasn't watching it. Sometimes it vibrates several times when I do this, sometimes not - it's quite inconsistent. But it clearly entered a 'device not set up' procedure. My guess is something to do with starting to charge during bootup.

For the record: the next update, to, failed and rendered the device unresponsive - booted to a black screen. I had to factory-reset.

So I think the OS was half-screwed-up - perhaps when the previous OTA update failed and I had to resort to terminal.
