Upgrading your devices

This is the usual drill before attempting to upgrade your devices, - If you use Phonehook from OpenRepos, uninstall it before upgrading. - If you use Patchmanager, revert all applied patches before upgrading. - 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. - Do keep the phone connected to a battery charger during the whole process.

For detailed instructions on updating software, visit Zendesk [ https://jolla.zendesk.com/hc/en - us/articles/201836347 ].

If connected to the internet, and your account is subscribed for Early Access releases, your Jolla should receive an OS update notification shortly.

Known issues

  • Google contact sync may sometimes hang up and drain the battery
  • PC connection mode (MTP) does not work with Windows 10 in all cases
