Update: We'll start rolling out this release to everyone today (15.6).

Please ensure that you have ~1.5GB of free disk space and connect your Jolla to a charger before attempting to upgrade your Jolla. If connected to the internet, and your account is subscribed for early access releases, your Jolla should receive an OS update notification shortly.

As usual,

  • If you use phonehook from OpenRepos, uninstall it before upgrading.
  • If you use patchmanager, revert all applied patches before upgrading.
  • If your device is running software version lower than and have WareHouse app installed (i.e you are using OpenRepos), disable all openrepo repositories before attempting to upgrade your device.
  • Take a backup of your data before attempting to upgrade your device. A successful backup operation is indicated by a green dot in the UI.
  • Do not reboot the device while the update is in progress.
  • The device screen may blank out during the update process, you may waken the display by a short press on the power key to monitor the progress.

Security fixes

Upgrade version history

  • (8.6.2015): Initial early access release

Known issues

  • If you have phonehook from OpenRepos installed uninstall it before upgrading.
  • Currently, checks on available disk space happens very late during the OS upgrade process and will fail in the installation phase if the disk space is low. Normally there should be an error note asking you to free some disk space and try again, but in some marginal cases it might not be shown. Should this happen, free some disk space and try to install the OS update again.
  • OS update may fail due to some other reasons too, for example it may have installed some packages from the new release and still have something left from the old. If the device can boot up, you can try to recover by doing the following. If not, you can attempt to recover the device using the recovery mode.
    • Delete the file /home/nemo/.cache/store-client/os-info
    • Stop the store-client process (for e.g. pkill store-client)
    • Reopen Settings app, check for updates again and attempt to install the OS update again
  • We have also noted that if the OS update is attempted while there is long queue of installation of apps from the Store, the system may end up in mixed state (for e.g. select all the apps from startup wizard, and start the system update already while the apps are being installed).
    • In such cases, the OS update appears to be stalled, however it is just waiting for the installations to complete before attempting to upgrade the OS. Just wait patiently, the worst thing to do here is to reboot the device!

I lost some contacts..Investigating... Thanks for the update!

I did a Cardav resync with owncloud and now it seems to work again. Had to relink some contacts, tough.

Highlights missing Flattr support in Store which is in the Changelog. I'd consider that a fairly big highlight and worth mentioning to non-developers

Anybody else getting a permanent "Voicemail available" since this update?

I've now always got a casette tape icon on my status screen (i.e. just after double-tapping the phone to wake it up). If I tap on the this icon, it tells me to swipe up to access my notifications, and there it says "Voicemail available." But if I check my voicemail, there's nothing (UK, O2 network btw). Have tried rebooting a couple of times.. Anybody else seeing this?

Not for me, and I'm on giffgaff (UK) which also uses O2 network. Are you tapping on the voicemail icon in the notifications?

Since I installed this latest update, battery is behaving erratically. Like, when battery indicator says it is 60% charged, it drops automatically to 4% while using it and suddenly announces low battery and shuts down. When I plug it to charger back, it takes couple of boot attempts then finally it starts and says battery is 70%. Also, after Aaslakkajarvi random reboot issue has appeared and never had a day without 2-3 reboots (count separately for battery issues). Please help me solve this guys, my work involves great amount of travelling and can't afford this. My sincere thanks in advance :)

Hi There is many small bugs since the last release.

  • The most annoyng one is the problem with phone calls. When you call someone and close the discussion, the phone gets stuck for some second until you receive a notification "call ended". This make me very nervous when ure calling multiple contacts and each time you end the call it gets stuck :(

Am i the only one with this issue ?
