I want to install experimental QTWebkit 5.212, but this repalces the system components and you need to revert back e.g. before system update. When I did that a year ago I had problems going to original ones.

I want to know the best way to revert to Jolla packages. What is the best way? Is this the correct way? Any way to use pkcon? Should I back up original RPMs?

 rpm -U --oldpackage --replacepkgs  --replacefiles <package> # reinstall rpm package

My Xperia 10 is on the way, which will replace my Jolla 1 and XZ1 Compact (Android). For that I want a capable web browser. I will use my poor Jolla 1 as a guinea pig.

Thank you very much, installing this package completely changes the web experience!

I am getting a fatal error: installation aborted by user, whenever I try this command to get back to the original packages.

@orangecat It does work for me (Jolla 1 on 3.2.0) after disabling the repo through Storeman. Dumb auestion, but are you sure you are executing it as Root?

Yes in root. I restarted the device, and then the install went through.
