Many thanks to all - during the last 30 years I've been envolded in many user groups - TJC is by far the best!

I've been with Meego and it's decendants since the beginning - N900, N9, JP1, JPCE, X, XA2...

Thus far all have served me well - some of the list not great but well enough to use as my main phones - I still love the N9 the most - I simply cannot understand how Nokia was able to pack such a punch to that device.

Because of the lack of Android for XA2 I was forced to flash to Android in January - and due to deficiencies (eg. WLAN) delayed the re-flash to SFOS until friday last week.

I hate the Android UI - it's a piece of ** - but using the SFOS for the weekend forced me to flash back to Android. In short terms XA2 is unusable as a daily driver :( - nowadays even the native SFOS apps are not working properly (not even gonna mention the workability of Android apps)

So farewell for now - I TRULY HOPE that the captain in charge of roadmapping the development, would finally STOP mocking about with MDM and other fancy features and REALLY start paying attention to getting the basics working [=FEATURE REQUEST]

I'm very SORRY for thet state of things now and for the fact that I must abandon ship :(

Hoping to be able to re-board SFOS some day.

Keep in mind that SFOS for XA2 is released as a beta so this is to be expected.

Have been holding off buying an XA2 because my X is working fine and an accione is waiting in La Paz to be flashed later. But on saturday i went shopping with my family and managed to buy the last available XA2 in town. It will be interesting to see if the android version is good enough for the bank app. I'll keep my X as the daily driver for now, though.

Yes - I would recommend staying in the X - that was usable (not perfect but usable)

@Max-Might yes, and based on the last couple years of experience (mainly with X) with Jolla it will stay beta forever

@vattuvarg As banking apps go, the version of OmaMobiili (of OmaSaastopankki) from two months back works fine but warns of security risk because of rooted phone. The latest version on the other hand announces straight away that it refuses to work altogether on a rooted phone.

You may need to put a slightly older working APK for safekeeping, because chances are they will make a bigger problem of the "rooted devices" now that every Finnish bank is spouting out their own identification apps with which they (probably by law) have to be very stringy about that stuff.
