It would be nice if we could have a Sailfish Tablet again. One that has more power as the official Jolla Tablet. Archos just released the Oxygen 101 S during the MWC 19. Any change we can get Sailfish OS up and running on it? Or better, official supported images?

why users posting such questions again and again for every new smartphone / tablet, if the answer is always the same? I don't get it. Please somebody explain me what happening in user head?

Official Supported images - No Chance i would say Community Port is possible when:

  1. Bootloader open or unlockable
  2. Kernel Sources
  3. Android BSP (Board Support Package)
  4. AOSP or CyanogenMod or LineageOS for this model

Archos delivers a special developer edition firmware

Will that be sufficient?

Unfortunately - not. 1st thing is to check if the bootloader is open. When its closed and can't be opened - all other things are not interesting anymore...

To be honest, Archos smartphone line is more interesting Link.

I haven't seen new phones with removable battery since Faiphone 2. And the price is pretty good too. Sadly I can't find a lot of info about source code, bootloader, etc...
