I would like to add some files to the emulator environment to test my App. Can I simulate an SD card with fotos, mp3s and stuff?

Hey, I know this is an old thread but as I had the same issue, here the solution:

There is a shared folder between Linux and the SDK/Emulator:

on the emulator: /etc/mersdk/share

on the linux pc: /sailfishos/vmshare

it is read-only for the emulator, so you can add your files this way.

For sending files from the emulator to the pc, you can use the scp-protocoll
