I never got the white THO ambience... dont know why. Would like to enjoy it. If somebody would point to where or how I can get it, I would be thankful.

Taking your TOH off and putting it back while the phone is on should start installing the ambience. Might take few tries for the phone to recognize it though, so don't give up, just take it off once more and start over.

I have tried "taking off and putting back on" more than 10 times and nothing happens. The phone emits the "TOH connected beep" but does not change. Only happens with the white one. Disappointing.

Keep trying more. Don't trust the sound, keep trying until it says it is actually installing the ambience.

Haha, wasn't even aware there was an ambience with the white TOH, I just reenabled the NFC and it started installing straight away :)

To be honest, don't think that you are missing much ...

Is ambience-snow-white - install via cli

the preloaded like grass and babyflower are jolla-preload-ambiences package, also install via cli.

EDIT:sorry linked the wrong package at first but updated with the correct package name

Where is this package to be found?

From the TOH or install it from dev console.

jolla repository! you need to install it from cmd line - for the record: the white ambience is one background image only

installing on cli does not work if you never been able to install it together with the other half, you would need the .rpm package. i've got the same problem, i think there are some kind of repo's, which get only activated if you you use the half.

There are bug reports a month old on that issue - one might think he is asking for an rpm to downlaod

I suppose the original owner of my phone installed the white TOH, so I cant have access to its content.

There should be a way of selling or giving the TOHs properly, content and all.

Have you tried to restart the toh deamon service? Helped me at least when i had "problems" with TOH. cli commands would be devel-su to become superuser and then to stop service systemctl stop tohd.service restart would be systemctl start tohd.service.
