  • [Xperia 10] User data encryption was added for Xperia 10 (in fact, it was included in 3.2.0 already - we repeat the key things here for new customers).
    • user data encryption is not yet available for other products but Xperia 10
    • It is present by default.
    • You have the following options (in case of Sailfish installed just now):
    • a) Setting the security code during the initial startup of your device. It will be used to unlock the encryption (during device startups) and for the tasks related to the device lock. There is no way to disable the security code, the encryption nor the device lock other than re-installing (re-flashing) Sailfish or running the factory reset (which requires the security code)
    • b) Skipping the security code dialogue in the initial startup and set the security code later in Settings > Device lock. Until then, encryption works in the background (no code queries) but you cannot enable the device lock.

      More information in this help article.

Settings

  • Encryption information added to "Settings > Encryption". Visible if user data encryption is installed - currently possible on Xperia 10 only
  • Ambiences settings page now follows the current ambience colouring instead of the colouring of the particular ambience list item
  • SIM card error (SIM not unlocked yet, locked permanently) pages now work properly on landscape (only affects tablet variants)
  • Certificate details are now translated
  • Backup settings page should no longer get stuck indefinitely, searching for backups

Storage

  • File opening broke due to filename/url encoding. This is fixed now
  • Folder details view shows the number of files in the folder now
  • Encryption information added to Settings > Encryption

UI components

  • Tab header design aligned with header components, right-aligned like page header. Previously, each tab was given one-third of the page width, and the labels were horizontally centred. Now, one header can take less than one-third width, giving more room to others.
  • "GridItem" provided for 3rd party to ease development of grid layouts for native Sailfish apps
  • Content deletion use cases redesigned to reduce confusion new users face. The work that was started in the previous release and continued in 3.2.1
  • Opening portrait-only page from landscape orientation fixed
  • Allow context menu deletion action on menu item delayedClick()
  • Fix remorse item colouring when not following the global theme
  • Fix crash with using label component within delegates

VPN

  • Improved VPN connection request handling. Having a VPN with invalid server IP, for instance, or when the VPN server is down, no longer causes VPN settings page to be unresponsive if the VPN is attempting to connect to the server for a long time and always failing. This was caused by improper management of D-Bus calls in ConnMan and is now fixed.
  • Improved the VPN settings of OpenConnect to support different authentication methods (cookie, credentials, public key authentication and PKCS#1/#8/#12. PKCS#8 is not working at the moment).
  • Improve VPN authentication error detection and interaction with VPN agent (all VPN types). An authentication error is shown in VPN agent dialogue if such happens.
  • Fixed the issue of opening multiple VPN agent dialogues on top of each other with OpenConnect, VPNC, L2TP and PPTP in case the VPN agent request or VPN process timeouts.
  • A VPN connection can no longer be stuck on "Problems with connection" state in VPN settings. This can be reset by enabling the VPN again or by going to VPN connection settings and saving the settings (VPN goes to idle state).
  • Fixed L2TP VPN connectivity and settings. All advanced settings are properly saved, CHAP is used as a default peer authentication method with new L2TP connections.
  • Fixed PPTP VPN connectivity on Xperia 10.
  • Fixed PPP settings pages available on L2TP and PPTP VPNs. If authentication via MPPE is required in settings either of the MSCHAP or MSCHAPv2 is used (both cannot be disabled).
  • The issue of OpenVPN forgetting credentials in various non-authentication errors is improved. OpenVPN should not forget credentials when the connection is terminated for reasons unknown.
  • Improved the situation with OpenVPN when an invalid password for the encrypted private key is given.

Device specific notes

Xperia X, Xperia XA2 & Xperia 10

  • Support for HEVC/h265 hardware decoding added to Xperia devices

Xperia 10

Gemini PDA

  • Incorrect WLAN MAC address fixed

T.J.C: Issues reported by the community and fixed in this update

All of the links below may not open up for everyone, sorry.

Technical changes

  • Fastboot tool (for Windows computers) was upgraded (from v.26) to version 29.0.5. This is included in the downloadable Sailfish X images of 3.2.1.20.

Changelog

The detailed changelog is kept here

Updating your device

Your device must be connected to the Internet and signed into your Jolla account. If your Jolla account is registered for Early Access releases you should receive an OS update notification when an update is available. If you have decided not to take the Early Access registration then you will get the OS update typically one week later.

We warmly recommend making some 3-4 GB of free space to the internal storage of your device before starting the update. Move your pictures and videos to the SD card (or to your PC or cloud service). After the upgrade turn on the option to save pictures and videos directly from the camera to the memory card (Settings > Apps > Camera). This is important particularly in the case of "Jolla Phone" devices (product name "Jolla" in Settings > About product).

This is the usual drill before attempting to update your devices:

Take a backup of your data before attempting to update your device and save the backup to an SD card or to some other off-device location (PC, your cloud service). Note that videos and images are not included in cloud-based backups. Do not reboot the device while the update is in progress. Do keep the phone connected to a battery charger during the whole process. Device screen may blank out during the update process; you may waken the display by a short press on the power key to monitor the progress.

For detailed instructions on updating software, read our help article in Zendesk.

NOTE: Sailfish OS does not support downgrading. Never try to downgrade the OS as this would break your device.

Notification concerning apps from Open Repos

  • If you use Phonehook or Callrecorder from OpenRepos, uninstall it before upgrading
  • If you use oFono from OpenRepos, revert to the official oFono before upgrading
  • If you use Patchmanager, revert all applied patches before upgrading.
  • If you use Defender, remove it as it will probably prevent your Xperia 10 (at least) from booting up. See this, please.

About SD cards

  • Encrypted cards must be unlocked by the user to make them available for Sailfish applications.
  • Non-encrypted cards are mounted automatically when the device is turned on.
  • Encrypted cards can be formatted only when they are locked. Formatting removes the encryption in this case (the card becomes unencrypted and unmounted). You can then format it again with the option to encrypt, if needed.

Known issues - generic

  • VPN does not work in case of Android apps
  • Sailfish can connect Bluetooth Low Energy devices now. However, Android apps cannot use peripheral devices via Bluetooth - other than for playback of the sound. Therefore smartwatches, for instance, cannot be controlled from Android apps
  • Bluetooth pairing and audio connections may fail in some circumstances
  • Developer mode/SSH: The chacha20-poly1305 cipher is not currently working, which is often chosen for SSH. It has been disabled in the sshd configuration file, but if you have manually modified it then it will not automatically update. You can ssh into your device using ssh -c aes128-ctr and check the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file against its rpmnew version if present. (will be fixed in OS update 3.3.0)
  • In case of many recent device models, clock alarms (RTC alarms) may not be functional after turning the device off. Please test this feature before using for a real need.
  • Tutorial app has graphical problems on older devices (e.g. Jolla Phone)
  • Contents in an encrypted SD card, unlocked for use, are not visible in Gallery and Mediaplayer although they are visible for File Manager, Backup/Restore and the like.

Known issues to Android App Support 8.1 - Xperia 10 & Xperia XA2

  • WhatsApp: playback of video clips in messages may not work by tapping the Play button - tap the Share button first, cancel sharing and then tap the Play button (expected to get fixed in the next OS update)
  • Pictures/videos on SD card are not visible to Android apps.
  • SD cards are not accessible and visible for Android apps (neither read nor write)
  • The alert of incoming WhatsApp calls does not work well - unless the app is already open when the call comes. If the display is locked and black, then there is no indication of the incoming call. If the display is on but locked, then the ringing tone is played but the touch display does not offer any buttons to take or reject the call.
  • Android apps cannot use peripheral devices via Bluetooth - other than for playback of the sound. Therefore smartwatches, for instance, cannot be controlled from Android apps.
  • The voice of an incoming call is not automatically routed to a wired headset. However, if the user directs the voice first to the HF speaker and then back to the headset, the voice can be heard at the headset.
  • VPN does not work in case of Android apps

Known issues specific to Xperia X

  • Not implemented features: NFC, FM radio, double-tap wakeup, step counter, RTC Alarms
  • Issues with mobile data persist on some SIM cards. Turn the Flight mode on and off to reset the network setup. Reverting the device to Android and re-installing Sailfish X has often helped. See our support article.
  • Manual network/carrier search lists all networks by the same name (the name of the SIM provider). Use an automatic search. If not possible, you need to try several items in the manual search results, unfortunately. The topmost item is not necessarily the one that can serve you (still valid with most SIM cards)
  • [camera] Force autofocus mode for photos, and continuous for video. After this, camera focus is still not ideal - as the camera stays out of focus when it starts until you either tap or try to take a shot - but the pictures seem to be better focused now
  • Bluetooth: problems with some car equipment, some audio devices and computers may appear
  • The loudspeaker volume level cannot be adjusted very high
  • Not all SD cards are recognized and mounted.

Known issues specific to Xperia XA2

  • Not implemented features: FM radio, double-tap wakeup, RTC Alarms
  • Bluetooth: there are problems in connecting to some peripheral devices
  • XA2 does not power up when alarm time has elapsed
  • Flashing Sailfish X to XA2 might still fail (so far seen to happen on Ubuntu 18.04 when using USB3 port). Please read this article.
  • With v17B Sony vendor image we observed a decrease in the perceived signal strength of the 5GHz WLAN access points (investigations ongoing). Version v16 may work better in this respect. Therefore we would not recommend flashing v17B for the time being if you use WLAN networks in the 5GHz band. You can reflash the vendor image of your choice by following the instructions in here.

Known issues specific to Xperia 10

  • Features not yet implemented: FM radio, double-tap wakeup, support for dual-lens camera, RTC Alarms, Hall (lid) sensor
  • Fingerprint recognition may sometimes fail to work. In such a case, restart the device and it works again.
  • Rarely, audio playback and sensors (display rotation) may stop working. If this happens, please restart the device
  • In some cases, the acceptance of the PIN code of a SIM card may take up to 12 seconds
  • During the decryption of user data in device start-up, there is a period of 10-20 seconds such that the display is black
  • White balance and HDR (of the camera) do not work.

Known issues specific to Jolla Tablet

  • There is no progress bar during the installation phase of OS upgrades. This makes it difficult to follow if it makes progress or not. However, if there are no problems the device will restart itself in the end - please wait patiently. If you feel that you have waited enough, wait for yet another 20 minutes before you turn off the device to allow some more time for it to complete the job. Interrupting too early may break the tablet.

Known issues specific to Gemini PDA

  • Features not yet implemented: double-tap wakeup, RTC Alarms
  • Gemini Screenshot Button Fn + X does not work
  • Not possible to answer calls when Gemini is closed with side button
  • Some 3rd party apps have issues in Landscape mode.

Not yet. But 14:00 GMT ? Does that utc mean that?

Edit: Uct gmt 14:00. Now it goes!

Yes, Universal Time Coordinated, that's essentially the same as the "old" GMT.

However, Android apps cannot use peripheral devices via Bluetooth - other than for playback of the sound.

Note: In my experience as a user, bluetooth keyboards also work on some devices (Jolla 1, Xperia X) for the exact same reasons (bluetooth handled on the Sailfish OS side of things, android side only sees standard input - except there are a few bugs on XA2 and not all input is correctly passed).

But...

Therefore smartwatches, for instance, cannot be controlled from Android apps

yes, indeed, this bit about low-level acces by android apps holds true.

Any chance of Jolla Devs working one day on a BlueDroid/Fluoride-to-BlueZ translation layer? Pretty Please?

Why does shuttering happens when android navigation is triggered then?

santhoshmanikandan ( 2019-12-11 15:38:53 +0300 )edit

By the way ... When do smart watches be able to be controlled by android apps. It helps nothing to just writing they do not ... Is there thus any yet secret but promised in the air ...

@DrYak note that for photographer there is the possibility to control their camera with an android app. that issue for this kind of application could be frustrating (i mean with xa2 devices). You can add on your ticket that is quite the same for wifi too

I just tried the same from another device that still have 3.2.0.12 and result is the same. So it is not SFOS regression, but some Google fault :-( I should clarify that I have enabled 2nd factor authentication, but I believe that it was not problem in the past.

After the upgrade, all calendar entries from the Google calender were duplicated, so I thought I'd remove and re-add the account, but got stuck at the screen with a code and instructions to copy it (although it's impossible to copy) to the app. No way forward, only back. Going back just shows the terms acceptance page again. I don't have 2FA enabled.

Pictures/videos on SD card are not visible to Android apps.

Well, actually...

Coderus' Aliendalvik contains sd-mounting scripts that make sharing possible. (Though, exactly now, there's a hiccup if you upgrade the package in-place. You need to manually separately un-install/re-install)

There's also the ghetto solution of manually adding into /var/lib/lxc/aliendalvik/extra_config :

lxc.mount.entry = /run/media/nemo home/nemo/android_storage/sdcard_external none bind 0 0

Hi. Is it true that Uninstalling and reinstalling coderus aliensavik fix the SD link it had created and was working before SFOS 3.2? Thanks

campeon ( 2019-12-13 01:08:27 +0300 )edit

@campeon Not for me, the /sdcard/sd entry leads to an empty directory. @coderus Are you aware if I should I carry out some cleanup before reinstalling to get the SD card link back to work?

@campeon : you need to uninstall and reinstall the current 9.1.3 version. (It's the last version which need a reinstall, from this version onward future upgrade should work).

Once you have reinstalled: - Sailfish OS' /run/media/nemoi/ (where all the removable media such as SD cards and USB stick pop-up when mounted) will show up inside android as /home/media/. And when in Saildish you pick "Share to" -> "Android" -> (some android app), you can now send e.g.: image on your SD card with WhatsApp, Instagram, etc.

@Giacomo Di Giacomo : Actually, with CodeRUS' AlienDalvik-control, it's /home/media inside Android (not /sdcard/sd )

This. Can't wait next release to get a remote back-up option that doesn't send all my data unencrypted to either Microsoft or Dropbox...

Any idea what Nextcloud features will be supported ?

From reading the detailed changelog, file sync seems to be pretty much certain & likely also contacts and/or calendar. But an official listing of what's planed would be nice. :)

Not to mention if some advanced features, such as todo lists or notes sync, would be supported. :)

Tab header design aligned with header components, right-aligned like page header. Previously, each tab was given one-third of the page width, and the labels were horizontally centred. Now, one header can take less than one-third width, giving more room to others.

This looks ugly and like a bug to me! I hope I get used to it soon.

Which program/component does this refer to?

Phone & Calendar. It sure looks ugly.

What a progress?? Sailfish manages Google accounts, impressive. Then the little world can keep turning. What about the SFOS bugs? That would be more important.

With a (traditional) dark Ambience, the popup keys on the keyboard show white-on-white. Not very practical. Only light Ambiences work for typing text now.

Seems to work fine over here, on both light and dark ambiences. Are you using any patches or third-party keyboards, perhaps?

Android support is getting worse with updates. Many bugs,and all apps stutter badly. Some apps still couldn't connect to the internet with no obvious reason...still. Still cant listen to voice notes through earpiece in whatsapp yet. Apps must be open to receive calls...

Jolla are taking their time with fixing the basics In Aliendalvik.

Some day Im sure Im going to lose hope in this OS and Jolla, as many others already did.

Calendar

  • Google calendar sync improved by replacing sync-interval method with sync tokens
  • Support ActiveSync event responses without original invitation
  • Various fixes to CalDAV-based calendars integrated

Looks like this introduced a synchronization bug: [3.2.1] New CalDav Calendars not syncing anymore (XA2)
