I had no problem with USB connection sharing till the previous release,, but last update broke it completely. After pluging the phone, the computer's network configuration starts but gets a timeout while trying to get the IP address. Is there a proper way to debug this failure?

It is a bit difficult to suggest something because it is unclear what you have tried already and might be missing. What OS do you want to connect to? What have you tried lsusb or lsblk for instance? It is difficult to offer a starting point.

I'm not sure I've quite the same problem, but the question is mine. After the 3.1 Sailfish OS upgrade, not way to get Internet Data from my Jolla to my PC.

Formerly (Sailfish OS 2), I had to set the Developer Mode and Remote Connection, at my own risk. After, I had to open the developer console and install (superuser) the usb-moded-connection-sharing-android-config package

I had to repeat it with the Sailfish OS 3.0 major upgrade, but with this 3.1 one, it seems not to work anymore.

After trying several proposals made here in tjc, the one that actually worked in my case is

this one.

@chalupa it would be good if you could confirm which device you are using as get no issues with F5121, F5122 or F5321 but XA2 series is a different matter as continually get "Preparing USB mode" with suggested fixes.

Same problem happened with both the Xperia X and the XA2 and this trick solved both cases.
