Well that took all day, but after a lot of efforts I did finally get my upgraded SFOS Not entirely sure whether the problem was at my end or Jolla's.
But anyway things seem to be running well now.

Hmm. Upgrading not going smoothly. Using the manual upgrade method. The gemini is repeatedly retrying 'REFRESHING CACHE AND DOWNLOADING PACKAGES', then failing with either,

a) 'Error: Timeout exceeded when accessing '' etc. etc.,

or b) after successfully downloading 3 packages warning that 'The upgrade could NOT be finished. Make sure you have a working Internet Connection and SSU is properly set up... REBOOT AT YOUR OWN RISK'

Or finally, c) 'Error: Permission to access '' etc. etc. 'denied.'

So far it has been all day like this.

It *could* conceivably be the Virgin Broadband connection playing up, but everything else in the house is connecting just fine, so I'm inclined to think there is something else wrong. Guess I need to find out where to ask questions of knowledgeable Jolla Sailfish people. (I haven't found google very helpful with troubleshooting Jolla stuff ...)

I mean the "Use battery manager, detect when apps drain battery". Turn this OFF.
Cosmo Communicator - General Discussion / Car Cup Cosmo Mount
« Last post by jakfish on October 16, 2020, 11:35:12 am »

A suction mount makes me a little nervous, so I wanted the secure cup mount and this mount fits the bill, and so does the reasonable price.

The Cosmo is held by a spring-loaded clamp that has enough padding to protect the device from the tight grip. Releasing the Cosmo is a little tricky, since you have to pull back the grip and retrieve the phone at the same time.

That's my only reservation. All else is fine, the adjustability, the security, the price.

Whether it's worth the hassle of mounting/unmounting, I don't know yet. I have a 2016 Accura, whose dashboard gps is recessed enough to sit the Cosmo inside, on top of a no-slide mat. The Cosmo is not as visible as when it's in a cup mount, but it's an easy in-and-out.

Hello everyone,

I've created another update to GCam for the Cosmo.  Please download v2 here:

New v2 fixes and features:
1. Front-facing camera now takes photos instead of crashing.
2. Video now works. Supported resolutions are 1920x1080 and 1280x720, selectable in the settings menu under "Ultra-high resolution video (1080p)" (so named because it was meant for 4K, which the Cosmo cannot do).  Be forewarned: the video quality is merely the same as that of the stock camera app.  Video is recorded through MTK's software stack.
3. Space bar can now operate the shutter button.  In the settings menu under Gestures, select "Shutter" for the volume key action.  This will allow both the space bar and volume keys to operate the shutter.  The buttons on back of the LCD (on the fingerprint reader) also work, as they are actually mapped to volume keys.  You can also use the space bar to start and stop video recording, but note that you will hear the space bar click in your video.
4. Added an HDR OFF button to the pop-up options to disable HDR, but I'm not yet convinced that it actually disables it.
5. Removed the HEVC option which doesn't work on the Cosmo due to MTK library limitations.
