My Jolla isn't working properly-it can load, but the only app that is working is terminal. I can't install telnet on my Windows, and I don't want to install Ubuntu. Are here any solutions?

Hi dnarik! You can use Putty available for Windows. To recover your phone using a Windows PC follow guidlines from this post:

Hi lakutalo. Can I check whether developer mode is turned on, or even turn it on via terminal?

I got you wrong in the first place. According to guidlines linked above you do not need dev mode at all.

But, as I said, I can't enable telnet on my computer-that's the main problem

You can always open a telnet session with putty. Use this instead of win telnet.

Then alright, I'll try it tomorrow, thanks

Maybe this helps?

(If it doesn't, you could always boot into live-Ubuntu and to the magic there, no need to install it :))

Thanks for the live-Ubuntu idea, for now, it's the best variant

A good alternative if you are familiar with linux. You do not have to install anything on your PC this way.
