[Bug] Alien Dalvik prevents Jolla to lock the screen

Of course this must be verified, but I noticed this weird behaviour. Sometimes, my Jolla refuses to lock the screen after the tme-out and it keeps it on until I manually lock it. I tried to stop and then start the Android environment via command line and everything gets back to normal. I don't know if that is caused by some Android apps, but it seems to happen randomly.

Has anyone faced this issue, aside from me?

Yes, I have the same issue every now and then. I have a strong feeling that android applications can't always be the issue because i currently have 0 installed and i still seem to have the issue. Not entirely sure does Heebo + Mitäkuuluu count as android applications.

Yes, I also noticed that the screen remains lit occasionally until I press the power button. However, I did not yet recognize any relationship to previous actions. Alien Dalvik is installed on my headset.

Thank you for your reply. Do you still have the Android vm installed?

I have the same suspect on Mitakuuluu, but I first stopped the alien dalvik and that seemed to fix the issue...hope there will be further investigation from the Jolla crew.

Could you try guys to stop the vm via the command systemctl stop aliendalvik.service next time it happens? So we would have a starting point
