+2 - I'm excited to see this OS, 'in the wild'. I would prefer to get it directly from Jolla though. This method feels a bit grey.

I'd really like to be using sailfish as my main driver. Gemini not due until June but would like to be prepared! If PMing is an option then yes please!

As stated earlier, Explit will send the download link to anyone who'll ask for it on Telegram. This might be annoying for anyone who doesn't have an account there, but please understand that he's not allowed to release the link in the wild, and that he needs to keep a list of all the users who are downloading it. Also, it's much easier to maintain the list if all the request come from one source only.

I have read some comments on IRC from an user testing it. The installation was apparently a pain, apart from that it was much more finished and faster than Debian. Everything seemed to be working except for camera and gps, the display also tended to go upside down if the device was tilted forward, probably because the accelerometer is in the keyboard part and that was confusing it.

I found this use full info below if anyone does manage to get it and want to take it for a spin.

Installing Sailfish
It's now in "closed beta". Don't ask me where to download it from. Hopefully it will be public soon. Here are the steps to install it in it's current form:

Install Android + Linux image, set up Debian (at least run resize2fs if you don't run the full script)
Make a backup of linux_boot: sudo dd of=linux-boot.img if=/dev/disk/by-partlabel/linux_boot
Download the sailfish .zip file to Android's Download directory. For some reason TWRP didn't find it if i just copied it to Android filesystem via Debian. MicroSD card should also work.
Boot TWRP.
Select the .zip from Downloads and install.
Power off and boot to Linux. Sailfish should start. The tutorial is a bit broken but you should get past it.
In Sailfish make a backup of linux_boot: dd of=sailfish-boot.img if=/dev/disk/by-partlabel/linux_boot
Switching between Sailfish and Debian
Overwrite the linux_boot partition with image you made earlier. For example to get from Sailfish to Debian, use dd if=linux-boot.img of=/dev/disk/by-partlabel/linux_boot

I was going to install this, but decided to wait for the full sailfish 3. It has functionality specific to the gemini (hardware keyboard) and is designed to run on it. From the limited demo videos available online, it looks really slick. Good things come to those who wait - 1yr for my gemini, worth the wait........
