In Hossa there have been many upgrades under the hood, fixing security vulnerabilities and improving stability and compatibility in several fundamental components such as Gecko, GCC, and the GNU C Library. This technology update mostly paves the way for new features in the next update (3.1.0) though it does also finally fix the long-standing IMAP idle problem. For XA2 devices we have solved the high WLAN-related power drain and the issue of the display turning off during phone calls, plus in Alien Dalvik there's improved file access and notification behavior, and mobile data now works with both SIM cards.

Technical blog about Hossa.

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

Technical changes


Detailed changelog is available here. - Several fundamental components upgraded such as the browser engine Gecko (esr45), toolchain GCC (4.9.4) and the GNU C Library (2.25) - Gemini PDA: a memory fix to allow booting from Android 8 bootloader.

Behavioural changes in Sailfish OS

  • /home is no more mounted at init - it is handled later by systemd; this is to avoid problems when the /home directory is encrypted

For those porting Sailfish to other devices

  • (no particular news this time)

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 the 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.

NOTE: Sailfish OS does not support downgrading. Never try to downgrade the OS as this would brick your device.

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

  • 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 colors of different objects when using the ambiences that have light background colors.
  • 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.

Known issues specific to Xperia X

  • Not implemented features: NFC, 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 an automatic search. If not possible, you need to try several items in the manual search results, unfortunately. The topmost 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 a 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 recognized and mounted.

Known issues specific to Xperia XA2

IMPORTANT: do not update your XA2 device to Android 9, or else installing Sailfish OS will brick your device. Currently, Sailfish OS requires Android 8.1. UPDATE: The flashing scripts for XA2 devices included in update (and now prevent installing Sailfish OS on Android 9.

The renewed flashing scripts of update and prevent installing Sailfish OS on top of Android 9 (which has baseband version 50.2.A.xx.yyy).

  • Not implemented features: fingerprint detection, FM radio, double-tap
  • Bluetooth: there are problems in connecting to some peripheral devices
  • XA2 does not power up when alarm time has elapsed
  • 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.
  • With v17B Sony vendor image we have observed a decrease in the perceived signal strength of the 5GHz WLAN access points (investigations ongoing). Version v16 may work better in this respect. Therefore we would not recommend flashing v17B for the time being if you use WLAN networks in the 5GHz band. The renewed flashing scripts of update allow you to use either of the two versions. You can also reflash just the vendor image of your choice (and not Sailfish OS) by following the instructions in here.
  • Voice calls with Whatsapp are not usable as the voice volume level is minimal (if can be heard at all).
  • Video playback in Whatsapp requires special actions: 1) Tap on video 2) Tap the share button (top right) 3) Tap back arrow 4) Tap Play on the video. Now it starts playing...

Known issues specific to Gemini PDA

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

Excellent, this update came earlier than expected. I can confirm that I can use mobile data <edit>on XA2</edit> now with Android app "DB Navigator" (Ticket app of Deutsche Bahn) with SIM1, SIM2 and on Wifi. Its network access has been very sensitive so far. Hope it will stay like this in every days use.

Cheers mates!

jollajo ( 2019-04-24 15:59:28 +0200 )edit

Interesting in my case it doesn't even work on Wifi. Also the other Android apps that had no mobile connection before are unable to connect.

scharelc ( 2019-04-24 17:28:20 +0200 )edit

@scharelc it didn't work instantly. First I updated my tickets and then checked for connections. Loading tickets has been more robust on XA2 than searching for connections. Just tried my banking app by Sparda-Bank, which used to be also rather picky and it also works. However switching from SIM2 to SIM1 didn't work without restart of the app.

Gecko engine upgraded to esr45 version

This is the single most important thing in this update. 45 is a lot better than what we have, but it's not enough. Is there a plan for when Gecko will be updated the next time, and to what version?

bocephus ( 2019-04-24 19:37:49 +0200 )edit

"Issue with proximity sensor is fixed - now the display does not go blank during phone calls" sounds good.

But my problem was not only that the display went blank, it was that the touch display was not disabled and I've inititated unwant actions with my ear, such as turning microphone off.

Is this also fixed?

Browser regression: editing browser bookmarks impossible

On J1, if you have a lot of bookmarks (like two pages), you can't edit the bookmarks in the last line(s) of bookmark icons. The menu can't extend below the area of the bookmark grid and thus is only partially visible (in line n-1) or not visible at all (in line n). As bookmark reordering is not possible, all entries in lines n-1 and n are not editable.

I haven't checked whether this is a regression or also a bug in earlier versions.

Same behaviour on the GeminiPDA. Because of the landscape screen the last Line in the item menu is missing, and therefore deleting bookmarks is not possible.

The updated installed flawlessly on XA2 Plus.

The browser seems to have benefited from the update of Gecko engine. It runs much smoother now.

However the bug where the XA2 is loosing 4G signal and switching to 2G until mobile network is turned off/on again is still happening a lot.

This is the weekly selling housing complex with facilities called Kopar At Newton condo situated at the heart of Newton, sandwiched by employment hubs Orchard shopping belt and Novena medical cluster.

A nearby freehold popular development is The Avenir condo, boasting of high grade fittings and fixtures for the socially elite at River Valley area; exclusive yet bustling with restaurants.

Or let's also explore another weekly winner called Avenue South Residence condo, situated along Silat Avenue with an upcoming MRT station completing nearby to service the residents. Its also near Harbourfront for easy reach to Supermarkets.

The Dairy Farm Residences condo is the westerly home within the Bukit Timah nature reserve that's introduced here. It's special because it is a mixed residential and commercial development, probably the last one in the Hill view area.

[Penrose condo] (https://www.penrosecondos.sg/) is the only East Side Residence recommended today, because it is priced competitively with the older condos. So you get a new condo at an old condo price. Talk about a good deal!

Last of all are 2 upcoming mid West developments Clavon condo and One North Eden condo which is near to each other, only 2 Mrt stops away, but servicing 2 different types of residents.

Do not invest in properties that you do not like. Obviously, it ought to be a fantastic investment on paper and look through the Kopar At Newton condo review first. You shouldn’t buy a property which you dislike just because the numbers are still great. You’re certain to have a terrible experience and be miserable with The Avenir condo review.

Compute your financing expenses, any repairs and upgrading that might have to get accomplished in addition to how long you may be left holding Avenue South Residence condo review. Though the selling price might seem great, there are many other aspects to think about prior to purchasing.

Always know the dangers which you’re coping with at Dairy Farm Residences condo review. Normally, the greater the threat, the larger the possible payoff will be. But along with this greater risk comes a larger prospect of not earning any money in any way. Thus assess the Penrose condo review.

Do not put all your money into a single venture. By diversifying, you’re lowering the danger of losing Clavon condo showflat. Every investment may reveal unique gains and losses however they need to average out to a good yield you will be well happy with One North Eden condo Showflat.

You should add to your update description that the update will silently abort without notification if there is too less space on the /opt partition, for example because of an backup of the system.img after modifications. This was already the case for 3.0.2. After this the user could believe the update is installed fine but later discover wrong behaviour of alien dalvik

Do you know Hong Leong the Penrose condo developer that is well known in Singapore? They also work with other developers like Gucco land to build the famous The Avenir developer.

Unknown to many, Hong Leong also has a stake in TID which is the One North Eden developer.

Another famous construction company is UOL, with successful projects like Clement Canopy and the upcoming Clavon condo developer. They are also the people for the fastest selling mega project at Greater southern Waterfront called Avenue South Residence condo developer.

Lesser known property teams like Dairy Farm Residences condo developer builds commercial mixed residential buildings, and also have a track record.

Same for the district 9 new residences along Bukit Timah and Region of Orchard called Kopar At Newton condo developer

/home is no more mounted at init - it is handled later by systemd; this is to avoid problems when the /home directory is encrypted

Oh, that's cool.

It means that more adventurous community members could even try experimenting with different filesystems for /home

(I'm personally thinking about BTRFS for the checksums and snapshotting, but other might be interested in filesystems that include encryption on the flight)

If you delete the folder "/home/nemo/.mozilla" then sailfish-browser crashes when you try to open any webpage.

But if you restore "/home/nemo/.mozilla" from a previous backup, then sailfish-browser works fine.

Why is this bug important? Because now you can't run sailfish-browser in firejail anymore, I mean now "/usr/bin/firejail --private /usr/bin/sailfish-browser" crashes when you try to open any webpage, while it works fine until version

EDIT: Thanks a lot to Eugenio who found a solution! The bug is that it creates an empty "prefs.js", so in order to run the sailfish-browser in firejail, now you must run this script in the jail just before running sailfish-browser

Never managed to upgrade OS without using CLI.. This time, though, I got the following error:

you're out of space on your root partition

So I ran into the same issue. Doing stat -f / and df -i / showed I had very little inodes remaining on /. I installed ncdu(I got a static binary from https://dev.yorhel.nl/ncdu) and did ncdu / and then pressed the C to sort by number of items. This show A LOT of files in /var/lib/connman. I saved all the wifi directories which had a settings file in them (ls -l wifi_*/settings) and deleted all other ethernet_* and wifi_* directories. This dropped the number of files in that directory from 250k to 75, dropping my inode usage from 99% to 21%. Then I could install the update.

Looks like this issue is fixed this release by "[connman] Don't create directory for counters/history. ".

I don't think that's the problem, since I have 500Mb+

samule ( 2019-04-25 20:05:58 +0200 )edit

Thank you @aerique: it worked! I just deleted /var/lib/connman/ directory..

samule ( 2019-04-26 09:59:48 +0200 )edit

Then I suspect you had the same problem as I had, although I would not have dared deleting the whole /var/lib/connman/ directory :-)

You might have had enough space, but you (like I) did not have enough inodes left. To put it bluntly: inodes determine how many files you can have, indepedent of the size they take up.

XA2 Ultra Dual Sim updating from hang after downloading the update via the smartphone gui. After choosing "install" it warned me that it could take long for the update but after that it would only show me the black screen with the words "Einen Moment..." (something like: please wait...) about 2 hours long. I then became unpatient...

Reading about other previous Sailfish updates also hanging in the forum I then followed the solutions in these threads saying to update via command line. Connected via USB, ssh'd into Sailfish OS (Oulanka), changed to devel-su and using ssu release which stated Device release is currently: updated with version --dup which worked flawlessly (1 package removed and 802 packages installed).

Very nice.
