What I did:

  • In /usr/share/lipstick-jolla-home-qt5/layers/TopMenuLayer.qml change "hintDuration: 600" to "hintDuration:1200"
  • Restart screen by using helping programs ("Hilfsprogramme") in settings app
  • Reboot because screen didn't start, resulting in white screen
  • Use sshd in recovery mode to undo change in TopMenuLayer.qml ( /rootfs/usr/share/... )

But that didn't help. Any idea what went wrong?

Edit - my Jolla C starts properly now. I replaced TopMenuLayer.qml with TopMenuLayer.qml.webosinternals.orig. I don't know what I went wrong while modifying TopMenuLayer.qml...

Thanks for reading :-)

What is "Hilfsprogramme"?......ah, never mind, it's German for "Utilities" - I had to Google that one ;)

Sounds to me like you already had applied a patch to TopMenuLayer.qml, hence you had the TopMenuLayer.qml.webosinternals.orig to revert the problem.

Without a patch being present, you would not have had the TopMenuLayer.qml.webosinternals.orig available.

It's best to edit files that do not have a patch applied, unapply the patch, remove the patch and then try your edit again.

EDIT: As i do not have a patch installed affecting the file in question, I have just changed 600 to 1200 and restarted lipstick (systemctl --user restart lipstick.service) and the device restarted without a problem.
