As the question says, can sailfishOS be ported to the p7? The button less front design of the phone is sleek, however, the virtual toolbar and emotion UI are far from sleek. I mean the phone works ok but the toolbar looks like a sore thumb sticking out of a machined surface (It looks odd). also, SailfishOS has better multitasking and uses less resources than android, while still having a android compatibility layer. sailfishOS would combine looks, performance and functionality. Who would want more?

FYI, SailfishOS ports do not come with the android compatibility layer.

i thought they did if you built it on android (cyanogenmod).

I believe this TJC forum is primarily meant for Jolla device discussions. I suggest the below for anything related to installing SailfishOS on other mobiles.

  1. IRC channel #sailfishos-porters where you can get help.

  2. http://forum.xda-developers.com/jolla-sailfish/general

  3. http://talk.maemo.org/
