What works

  • Compiling the kernel from the Jolla sources which should provide everything to run Wayland since that's what Sailfish uses
  • Flashing
  • Booting
  • USB
  • SSH (after some manual configuration)

Flashing mode

The Jolla phone uses fastboot from the Mer project rather than Android. To enter fastboot shut down the device, then plug in the USB lead while holding down volume down.

USB connection

The USB connection works, but needs some manual configuration (as found here).

First, find the interface name using ip a. Then, we have to assign the device a mac address (replace the interface name with what you found from the previous command).

# ip l set enp1s0f0u3 address 12:12:12:12:12:12

An IP address will be assigned automatically.

You can now use SSH to connect to the device on
