After seeing a lot questions about sailfish 2 loosing essential functions and because I really dislike updating because of my jailbreak experiences I think it's important that we can say "No, I don't want to update" and just remove the update message from lockscreen and the notification screen. It might be something we really need if 2.0 will have all those removals of useful stuff. Please don't be like Apple here saying every OS that's not the newest shouldn't be used at all and we'll annoy you extremely until you update.

A downgrade possibility would be nice as well, I'm still not sure about the new browser.

EDIT: I want to be able to DISMISS update notifications, to remove them from notification view using pulley menu and selecting clear notifications. Currently they stay after doing this which keeps the lockscreen item and forces me to open PyLeTOH app to turn off LeTOH notification blinking which is really annoying.

Saying No, I don't want to update. is like saying please keep my device buggy and insecure. So good luck with that. I think this post sums up TJC at the moment perfectly, there are so many posts dissing the new design of the OS, that I seriously don't understand why people complain so much. Please tell me if you are absolutely sure that the design you have seen in the demo devices will be final.

Now we have some options to choose how the UI works, so do you people honestly think that Jolla will remove the freedom to choose? Or perhaps they are implementing more options, have you ever considered this?

Personally I'm sick of people nagging but N9 this and MeeGo/Maemo that and... If those were so perfect, please go back, use those devices that you value so much and long after. I want to see Jolla and Sailfish evolve and develop. But hey, this is just me. I've had my Jolla only for a few months, I'm not one of the first. I'm the average Joe Chris the Consumer. And I'm looking forward fot the new spin of SFOS.

EDIT: And even now, you can set the phone update to Manual - so you can choose when/if to update.

All I'm saying is that I don't want to see that I have to update if it is out. I maybe will update after enough positive reviews are out, but at earliest one week after release. What disturbs me is that I have to see the update icon in lockscreen and notification screen for this week. It's there and it's annoying me.

@JakeTheChangeling - If you set up your phone to update manually, it will not show up until you choose to check for updates. If there are updates, it will be shown. I've not tried to hide the notification, I'll have to test if it possible to remove. People were complaining about the weather app getting in their faces and the solution was dead simple: long press - ignore - profit.

@Macilaci457 You do realize it's a smartphone, it's only purpose is to browse the internet. I use my Jolla only for Twitter, Tapatalk and browsing the internet with Web Pirate. Well, sometimes I listen to music via SailWave as well. All of this wouldn't work without internet. It's 2015, nobody ever uses SMS or calls someone anymore, that's why Facebook and WhatsApp exist.

@raketti thanks for the manual update hint, this might solve the problem
