I think I found a easter egg on my phone. A handy tool indeed! It's with the Alarm Clock.

First you need a text tool like nano. Example will be nano. To install nano:

pkcon install nano

And then you'll open up the terminal and login as devel-su.

Then run this one in case of broken codes and so:

cp /usr/share/jolla-clock/clock.qml /usr/share/jolla-clock/clock.qml.backup

File to open:

nano /usr/share/jolla-clock/clock.qml

and change onlyCountdown to false.

Now, have a look at your Alarm Clock (Scroll down in the list if you got more than 20 alarms?!)

Thanks Jolla for that one! :)

If you got any easter eggs to share feel free to add it in a post or edit this text!

You bastard, now clock app doesn't turn on at all! And I can't reverse it! The screen becomes white and that's all. Hope alarm will activate in the morning.

Show me how whole file should look like, please.

for the next modifications.... try in your "how to" every time with "Backup your files" like

cp /usr/share/jolla-clock/clock.qml /usr/share/jolla-clock/clock.qml.backup

if someone goes wrong, you can delete the broken file and copy/past the working backup back

You don't need to install nano or any other tool to edit text-files on this Linux device, there is already vi installed by default (as many distros do).. To edit a file, just type:

vi file.txt

Help on how to use it with

vi --help

and lots of resources on the web to familiarize onself with vi's (admittedly quite peculiar) commands for changing modes and editing and saving files.. some examples:

to sart editing type i

to save the changes type ESC :w

and to exit from vi type ESC :q

Yeah, I knew about vi/m. But for a beginner like me i suggest nano instead :)

Well, you have to know and learn the nano command syntax too even if some of the most used key commands are visble in the UI (but not all).

Yeah I noticed it too. Setting the time for one minute. And the real time would be 12 hours and 1 minute :P
