Hi guys, All the buzz around Huawei adopting Sailfish Os. A Sailfish port for huawei/honor device at this point of time will have a great impact & support from the Internet to Sailfish. Right time Right Place Right Thing

Is it possible for any talent from community to port ? We can raise Crowd Funding for this port.

Honor 10 lite may be a feasible option as it is,

  1. Available in europe, Asia.
  2. Its a lower Mid Ranger costing around 170 euros + 49 euros for bootloader unlocking, thus it is affordable.

please provide your opinions on this idea and other device recommendations in the comments section and upvote if you like .

You want to buy bootloader unlock code from 3rd party companies for $50 or so?

:( that's too expensive. Lucky if any one of the porter has an huawei device unlocked. @coderus.

Found some one named Martin Ghosal has ported sailfish 2.0 before , found it on youtube

@coderus yeah , its not gonna work. Even if we put money and port, no one is going to pay a further 50$ to port. Sorry !

Closing the topic.

Whats all the excitement about Huawei? In dont think they are a good partner for this.

I think it would make more sense to support the PinePhone and piggz with its community port.

Huawei is the second largest oem afta samsung. Thet have got processors, cloud, cameras, 5g etc.. Its like an another Nokia. They have got plenty of resources that too cheap labours. They can turn the tables of sailfish os . @makarch. They will flood the app stores with apps which at this point we cant imagine
