Can an Xperia X Hossa user please let me know if the Hotspot works. The hotspot can be activated but when devices connect they all report no internet access.

BTW the phone's mobile data is working fine

I'm using hotspot every day with Xperia X and Hossa, and it's working fine.

I have had the same problem for the last few days. It was working fine before.

It was working fine before. It worked a few days on then, same as you. It works for 20s when I activate it, then it stalls. Someone know where the error log is ?

Downgrading to fixes this issue for me (by factory reset). Factory reset and go back to did not work, so it seems the issue is in the last update.

Update : problem came back 24h later. After I received a call while hotspot was activated, I had to restart hotspot several times, and it stopped working completely after 30 min. A factory reset later, the issue got solved again.

I tried to downgrade via a factory reset but there was no option to reset to a previous version (probably because was the first version installed on this phone).

I then downgraded to using this method

But I still have the same problem with the hotspot (clients can connect but no internet access)

Not so sure that the downgrade was successful, the update page now shows the Hossa image & title but the version is reported as It says my device is up to date

Since I had to factory reset again I didn't bother to update and I am still on I think my hotspot is broken again after I exchanged some text messages while it was on. So it might not be linked to version, since it broke three times when using both hotspot and network at the same time.

@jetset maybe try reflashing if downgrade doesn't work ? If it does, can you try reproducing the bug by using the cellular network with hotspot on ?

OS versions and for Xperia X are practically identical. There is nothing that would make the hotspot work differently with these two versions. If they do then this is caused by something else (e.g. some settings changed, an extra app removed, device restart,..(just guessing)).

Sailfish OS does not support downgrading (other than via factory reset). An attempted downgrade may lead to a state of malfunction. Consider saving and keeping the Sailfish installation zip of your favorite OS version (this concerns Xperia products). The download page of Jolla Shop has the latest versions only.

I had some dialogue with Jolla support and they assure me that the hotspot code is no different from to I cannot obtain a copy of the install to try reflashing. So it looks like I have to wait for the next update to see if it is fixed then.
