updated 2019-11-14 11:03:30 +0300

Oulanka brings in some new Sailfish OS features, with 44 TJC reported issues fixed: the Top Menu has new switch for silencing ringtones and there's a new battery saving mode to make the most out of a low battery. Email supports sending read receipts. Connectivity was improved in terms of firewall and global proxy. Also several security vulnerabilities were fixed, front camera focusing is better, the home screen has been tuned up, and Sailfish copes better in environments with large numbers of Bluetooth and WLAN devices. As well, this update improves Android™ 8.1 App Support Beta for Xperia XA2 devices.

Many thanks to you our active contributors for your feedback and proposals.

T.J.C: Issues reported by the community and fixed in this update

All of the links below may not open up for everyone, sorry.


Detailed changelog is available here.

For those porting Sailfish to other devices

The following two fixes must be included to be able to use the 3.0.2 SDK for porting Sailfish to other devices:

Updating your device

Your device must be connected to the Internet and signed into your Jolla account. If your Jolla account is registered for Early Access releases you should receive an OS update notification when an update is available. If you have decided not to take the Early Access registration then you will get the OS update typically one week later.

We warmly recommend making some 3-4 GB of free space to the internal storage of your device before starting the update. Move your pictures and videos to the SD card (or to your PC or cloud service). After the upgrade turn on the option to save pictures and videos directly from the camera to the memory card (Settings > Apps > Camera). This is important particularly in case of "Jolla Phone" devices (product name "Jolla" in Settings > About product).

This is the usual drill before attempting to update your devices:

Take a backup of your data before attempting to update your device and save the backup to an SD card or to some other off-device location (PC, your cloud service). Note that videos and images are not included in cloud-based backups. Do not reboot the device while the update is in progress. Do keep the phone connected to a battery charger during the whole process. Device screen may blank out during the update process; you may waken the display by a short press on the power key to monitor the progress.

For detailed instructions on updating software, read our help article in Zendesk:

Notification concerning apps from Open Repos

  • If you use Phonehook or Callrecorder from OpenRepos, uninstall it before upgrading
  • If you use oFono from OpenRepos, revert to the official oFono before upgrading
  • If you use Patchmanager, revert all applied patches before upgrading.

About SD cards

  • Encrypted cards must be unlocked by the user to make them available for Sailfish applications.
  • Non-encrypted cards are mounted automatically when the device is turned on.
  • Encrypted cards can be formatted only when they are locked. Formatting removes the encryption in this case (the card becomes unencrypted and unmounted). You can then format it again with the option to encrypt, if needed.

Known issues

  • Jolla Phone & Jolla Tablet: Installing this OS update uninstalls Sailfish Maps app, unfortunately. It can however be reinstalled from Jolla Store once the OS update is completed (fixed on March 20th at 16:45 EET)
    • Bluetooth pairing and audio connections may still fail in some circumstances
    • Some Facebook services (syncing FB events to calendar; uploading pictures to FB from gallery) do not work (independent of your OS release) due to some changes at the FB end.
    • Light ambience concept of Sailfish 3 needs polishing and tuning up. There are still issues with the colours of different objects when using the ambiences that have light background colours.
    • Disabling a calendar account does not necessarily prevent the appointments from alerting.
    • The chacha20-poly1305 cipher is not currently working, which is often chosen for SSH. It has been disabled in the sshd configuration file, but if you have manually modified it then it will not automatically update. You can ssh into your device using 'ssh -c aes128-ctr' and check the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file against its 'rpmnew' version if present.
    • The threshold of battery saving mode must be changed once to make the saving mode turn on automatically. Therefore set it to 15%, or first to 15% then back to 20% [to be fixed to 3.0.3].

Known issues specific to Xperia X

  • Not implemented features: NFC, fingerprint detection, FM radio, double-tap, step counter
  • Issues with mobile data persist on some SIM cards. Turn the Flight mode on and off to reset the network setup. Reverting the device to Android and re-installing Sailfish X has often helped. See our support article.
  • Manual network/carrier search lists all networks by the same name (the name of the SIM provider). Use automatic search. If not possible, you need to try several items in the manual search results, unfortunately. The top most item is not necessarily the one that can serve you (still valid with most SIM cards)
  • [camera] Force autofocus mode for photos, and continuous for video. After this, camera focus is still not ideal - as the camera stays out of focus when it starts until you either tap or try to take a shot - but the pictures seem to be better focused now
  • If device is powered off alarms are not functional
  • Bluetooth: problems with some car equipment, some audio devices and computers may appear
  • Loudspeaker volume level cannot be adjusted very high
  • Not all SD cards are recognised and mounted.

Known issues specific to Xperia XA2

  • Not implemented features: NFC, fingerprint detection, FM radio, double-tap
  • Battery drain high when WiFi on
  • Bluetooth: there are problems in connecting to some peripheral devices
  • XA2 does not power up when alarm time has elapsed
  • Display blanking is unstable during phonecalls or alarms (due to proximity sensor). Quick triple-tap on Power button in the problem situation helps.
  • Flashing Sailfish X to XA2 might still fail (so far seen to happen on Ubuntu 18.04 when using USB3 port). Please read this article.
  • Mobile data doesn't work with with certain SIM/operator on most Android apps
  • WLAN does not work on channel 13
  • There are two working versions of vendor binaries: v16 and v17B. Both have been tested to work on XA2, however, we recommend using the newer one (v17B) if you flash/reflash Sailfish OS to your device.
  • Sailfish flashing script of Windows was broken on the public release of update The problem has been fixed today (Friday March 29th). If you have downloaded the Sailfish OS zip package already, you need to do it again now. Download from here.

Known issues specific to Gemini PDA

  • Gemini Screenshoot Button Fn + X does not work
  • Not possible to answer calls when Gemini is closed with side button
  • Alarm not working
  • Some 3rd party apps have issues in Landscape mode.

I'm curious, what's the holdup for a fix for the WLAN battery drain on XA2? Is this dependent on kernel / kernel drivers? I.e. do we have to wait for a fix from Sony/Qualcomm?

I was very enthusiastic because of the Android App Support -> Memory leak fixed to fix my problem with the Payback app. But another disappointment. Either it fixes just the Android Support of XA2 or just very rare cases.

For anyone wondering what this part is about

Camera - Supported values of each device's camera parameters are now passed through to Qt, enabling more camera controls in apps. Thanks to Adam Pigg (piggz) for this contribution.

You can try it out with this application:

Which exposes a lot of different scene modes and controls that the camera hardware may support but haven't been exposed by the middleware until now.

Regarding battery life: I've charged my XA2 (dual sim) yesterday morning 7:00am to 100%, have been paragliding (mountains, bad reception, high altitudes, low temperature <0 C), took photos, traveled 350km by car, used Bluetooth, 4G Internet a lot and today 32h later, the phone tells me it's still at 61% battery! I'm impressed!!! Before the update, it would have shut down due to depleted battery yesterday evening.

@jovirkku, regarding the following recommandation:

There are two working versions of vendor binaries: v16 and v17B. Both have been tested to work on XA2, however, we recommend using the newer one (v17B) if you reflash Sailfish OS to your device.

Would it be possible in far future to upgrade the vendor binary through the sfos update?
Or it won't be possible so far?...
Currently i have the v16, for me it's currently ok for the short term.
If I think about it for the long term, i get some weird feeling.
And flash it new, for having all new, means make the big job to backup, doing the flash and reinstall all, make me nervous. If it's done totally automatically, is maybe better....
But the interest is maybe with binary in OS-UPdate (if it's possible)...
Could you please check it with "trusted" Colleague if it's possible?
Many thanks for understanding and effort.
Have a nice continuation

It seems that with this update the CPU sleep feature is much more reliable and efficient on my Xperia X than before. Usually CPU sleep had been working during the first day after each reboot, after that it went to about 0%. I couldn't figure out if that was due to flightmode toggling, services restart, or something else. As a result the CPU was never really sleeping.

Situation has changed with Oulanka. Sysmon shows that the CPU sleeps nearly 100% during the night (with flightmode on, Aliendalvik and EAS services stopped). This behaviour seems to repeat reliably:

I don't know if that is mentioned somewhere else, but battery life of my Xperia X has indeed increased. Thank you very much for that!

Thanks for the statistics...I also recognized it, but didn't monitor it for evidence. It is really great. Is it maybe due to the updated connection manager?

First of all: Thank you for the update!

I have a question regarding the vendor binaries: I learned that there are v16 and v17B and both can be used. Is possible to update the vendor binaries on my X or XA2? What would be the benefit? And how can I do so?

edit flag offensive delete publish link more



Hi, the v16 ad v17B binaries are only for XA2, and there are no changes that Sailfish OS benefits from. This is why we have not released instructions how to upgrade the oem vendor partition separately.

Once 3.0.2 XA2 images are available in the Jolla Shop, you will be able to reflash your device if you want to have the v17B.

Since you now recommend v17,

There are two working versions of vendor binaries: v16 and v17B. Both have been tested to work on XA2, however, we recommend using the newer one (v17B) if you reflash flash/reflash Sailfish OS to your device.

is there any issue with upgrading the binaries without fully reflashing SFOS via

fastboot -s ... flash oem_a ...img

? (procedure extracted from flash.sh)

I flashed 3.0.2 to 17B and back to 16 with no issues. I plan to do it myself later. AFAIK there should be no issues (but as always, be careful whenever flashing whatever).

Updating the binary file need to be done in fastboot mode?
