I was trying to figure out how to change my jolla's device name from "localhost" to "jolla" for example.

I couldn't find an option to change the name in the settings. How's that done?

One possibility is to create an /etc/hostname file and reboot, than systemd should set this hostname.

After set the new hostname in your /etc/hostname file you can restart only the network service if you enabled the developer mode except restarting the entire OS: Open terminal, and type the following:

devel-su systemctl restart network

The operation require a password. Follow the instructions here: http://forum.jollausers.com/sailfish-news/devel-su-password/
