Early access has been a very successful program in the Sailfish community since we launched it in 2015. It has helped us find certain bugs with the community's help before releasing each update to the masses, and has also greatly improved how our community impacts our software releasing speed and quality.

With the release of Sailfish 3, we are committed to continue this program.

The early access programme is still very much intended to be used by technically minded users who can handle potential problems.

Details about the early access update in short:

  • The early release access is meant primarily for advanced users, and/or developers
  • To sign up for the program there is a checkbox in the Jolla accounts profile page
  • Sign up is required only once, it's then valid for all later releases
  • If you choose to opt out from the early access program just uncheck the box in the account profile page
    • After that you will not receive future early access releases. Note that any installed early-access release will not be downgraded
    • The only way to downgrade from early access releases is to do a factory reset after removing the sign up check from your account profile
  • Early access releases should be considered "stable". Issues found during that period will either be fixed, or added to "known issues" on the release notes
  • Signing up for the early access releases will not void warranty

Happy updating!

How can I check for opt-in? There is no checkbox shown in my Jolla Account profile settings...

@coderus as I tried to explain, for now only some reasonably stable RC close to release. We'll evaluate the results after each update, though. This is just a point needed to get started with the whole early access thing.

on 1.1.7.27, after entering the Jolla account credentials, the dialogue says "creating account..." instead of "signing in...". Also, when failing to authenticate the Jolla acount, it says "failed to create" instead of "faied to authenticate".

As it actually signs in to the Jolla account instead of creating it, this seems to be just a UI issue.

Just an idea, post bug reports as individual posts, see for example this post: bug-reports-posted-as-answers. Makes it easier to find them and track them.

About the issue, I have the same thing with the latest stable (1.1.6.).

I have problem with backup. When loaded new update phone asked to make backup. It never did it. I shut down that window and get update loaded and installed. Still when I go to backup, there are only that circle that means loading and after while on the upper side of screen comes notice "settings are not responding, wait or close".

And now phone has start to shutdown. Always when Android Facebook app is open. I have to press power button. The previous software update closed all opened apps by itself. But that is now remarkably decreased.

When I updated I didn't remember to disable Warehouse repositories...

After selecting upgrade, my phone is not booting back. My phone charger is connected.
