Hi, is it planned a procedure for a "flash to factory default image" of the phone? Like flasher for N900, sliding out the keyboard, powering on the phone pressing "U" key while connected to the usb cable, sending the phone into "upgrde mode".

This is coming in an update soonish, as mentioned in the roadmap document:

"enablers to allow factory reset operation to reset the OS to the latest available public version instead of the age old factory image provide an API to check the system update size"

We're not able to provide flashing images for the Jolla due to 3rd party restrictions. We provide as of a recovery menu that allows you to factory reset in difficult situations. This recovery menu will improve further in later updates.

For technical details, view my post on TMO.

Unfortunately Apple iPhone features like locked down code is not one Jolla should seek to emulate.

Code writers prefer a FOSS system and Jolla needs to lean on Qualcomm to open up.

when you recovery (i have done it today) system return to versione ... and after recovery, available update is version but where is version it's better if recovery mode recover system to last image firmware!

Let's try to get the material (flash and recovery) to this site also, if possible.

Should this question be closed? If not, does it deserve a roadmap tag?
