Hi,

I installed the new SailfishOS3 form merproject.org. It work´s really great on fairphone 2, but in the jolla Shop there was no "android support" app. I need this to use threema, nextcloud, f-droid,....

How can I enable the android support?

Regards

No Android support, no Microsoft Exchange support, no predictive text input. Compare with "Sailfisg X free" (https://shop.jolla.com).

Community ports don't have Android Support. This is the short answer.

As you can see in the comments, you have a couple of other options (very interesting, but also more or less incomplete) and an illegal one (that hasn't been mentioned yet AFAIKS).

AFAIK there are some ongoing community experience with OSS Android emulaion technologies such as Anbox, but the official Android emulation support is indeed available only on officially supported devices.

Hi,

Can you provide a link about these experimentations?

@louisbob I have found a few:

But the best option would be to ask in the #sailfishos-porters IRC channel on freenode.

In adition to Anbox mentionned by @MartinK above, we should also mention SPURV (which has Collabora pushing it)

Which is also yet a third "AOSP in a container" solution with yet another different mechanism to translate the graphics (Anbox uses the special API used by the SDK's Emulator to channel requests over a tunnel to the host, SPURV straight makes Wayland surface as an available output to the android display driver. Alien-Dalivk uses some proprietary tech upon which Jolla bought the rights from Myriad)

(Don't pay attention to the date of the oldest post. It's just a coincidence that it was released on a 1st of April. Later posts about development prove that it was a mere April Fools' Joke)
