Hello fellow Linux bros,

I saw this thread today Sailfish OS 3.0.0 released to early adopters today
(https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=35592&st=0&#entry290497)

I have to keep type this up quick since it is literally 2:00 AM for me and I am recovering from recent sickness with work tomorrow- so I apologize for the formatting.
Also thanks to Depscribe and Yoram for the thread, it also had some useful information and links for me to get this done.

I was on SFOS 2.1.3.7 initially, but flashed the SFOS 2.1.4.14 build since I wanted to triple boot.
So these are the steps I performed from a fresh install on that build.

Step 0)

Enable early access to SFOS releases at https://account.jolla.com/
(Requires Jolla account; Not sure if required but I enabled it)


Step 1)

I enabled SSH under developer options.
I used SSH for this next task.
CODE
ssh-keygen -f "/home/meganerd/.ssh/known_hosts" -R 192.168.2.15
ssh nemo@192.168.2.15



Step 2)

CODE
devel-su
vi /usr/share/ssu/features.d/adaptation-community-common.ini

(Press 'i' to enter insert mode, modify text, ESC, then enter :wq)


change this line:
CODE
adaptation-community-common = http://repo.merproject.org/obs/nemo:/devel:/hw:/common/sailfish_latest_%(arch)/


to:
CODE
adaptation-community-common = http://repo.merproject.org/obs/nemo:/testing:/hw:/common/sailfishos_%(release)/



QUOTE
If do not change from devel: (state: unstable) to testing: (state: testing) you get trouble with your sensorfw (sensors not working, only a software problem). Before next step you can verify that the change is done with:

CODE
ssu lr



You must go to 2.2.0.29 before going to 3.x
So start the update to 2.2.0.29:


Step 3)

CODE
ssu re 2.2.0.29
ssu lr
pkcon refresh
version --dup
sync
reboot


(if you get "Fatal error: File ... not found" on you made a typo on the adaptations file)


CODE

After reboot, and attempting to boot into SFOS the device looks like it is in a powered off state.
But I can hear the USB sound from SFOS when I plug it in... so I SSH in to the device. This works.

(Eventually the screen started working so you can SSH or wait)

CODE
megaman@machine:~$ ssh nemo@192.168.2.15

[nemo@Sailfish ~]$ devel-su
Password:
[root@Sailfish nemo]#




Step 4)

Modify these 2 files to the following using vi

/usr/share/ssu/features.d/adaptation-community-common.ini

CODE
[adaptation-community-common]
repos = adaptation-community-common
pattern = Feature adaptation community common
description = Common packages needed by community's HW adaptation

[repositories-release]
adaptation-community-common = http://repo.merproject.org/obs/nemo:/devel:/hw:/common/sailfish_latest_%(arch)/



/usr/share/ssu/features.d/adaptation-community.ini

CODE
[adaptation-community]
repos = adaptation-community
pattern = Feature community adaptation
description = Enable ssu for community ports

[repositories]
adaptation-community = http://repo.merproject.org/obs/nemo:/devel:/hw:/planet:/geminipda/sailfish_latest_%(arch)/




Step 5)

CODE
ssh nemo@192.168.2.15

ssu re 3.0.0.5
pkcon refresh
version --dup
sync
reboot




Finished! What now?

Patch orientation file: /usr/lib/qt5/qml/Sailfish/Silica/Page.qml
(You can use nano or vi; Install nano via "pkcon install nano")

CODE
$ devel-su
    # cd /usr/lib/qt5/qml/Sailfish/Silica/
    # cp Page.qml Page.orig.qml
    # nano Page.qml


Modify this part:
CODE
    property int _allowedOrientations: {
        var allowed = allowedOrientations & __silica_applicationwindow_instance.allowedOrientations
        if (!allowed) {
            // No common supported orientations, let the page decide
            allowed = allowedOrientations
        }
    return allowed
    }


To this:
CODE
    property int _allowedOrientations: {
        var allowed = allowedOrientations & __silica_applicationwindow_instance.allowedOrientations
        if (!allowed) {
            // No common supported orientations, let the page decide
            allowed = Orientation.LandscapeInverted
        }
    return Orientation.LandscapeInverted
    }


Terminal with orientation patched: https://gitlab.com/Meganerd.eth/Sailfish-De...0-1.armv7hl.rpm

Other problems I notice (currently)

* App drawer icons are too large and overlap after I patch orientation
* On/ESC key does not turn off display
* Wake from sleep is significantly slower than before (This is actually bothering me the most, sometimes its very slow to wake from sleep)
* USB tether not working
* WLAN0 hotspot not working (even on previous builds I could get it working with connmanctl from CLI)

So now I need to get to 3.0.0.0 or 3.0.0? (I am guessing the build is this)

UPDATE - I got stuck:
It is way past time for me to get to bed, unfortunately I will have to pickup on this tomorrow.
If anyone who was successful could help me figure out what I am doing wrong that would be awesome


I read that Yoram said he had to switch his adaptation layer to salfish_latest

so I modified the file back to its original state
(/usr/share/ssu/features.d/adaptation-community-common.ini)

Then attempted multiple releases but got an error from here
CODE
ssu re 3.0.0.0
ssu re 3.0.0


Both of them throwing me this error

CODE
Error: File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium 'http://repo.merproject.org/obs/nemo:/testing:/hw:/planet:/geminipda/sailfishos_3.0.0.0/'


I see that the output is still trying the first modified syntax even after updating the adaptation-community-common.ini file?

I took a brief look at the ssu command but no luck.
I have run out of time to get this going for tonight- sorry!

CODE
[root@Sailfish nemo]# ssu --help

So it looks like the reason why the upgrade didn't work is there is no listing at http://repo.merproject.org/obs/nemo:/testi...net:/geminipda/ for 3.0.0.0

So I just did this on my lunch break- and unfortunately I cannot have my phone on me in our lab environment.
I will take a look next chance I get.

However just looking at the repo I do not see any mention of AlienDalvik RPM

So, for clearness, could someone post the content of both files: adaption-community.ini and adaption-community-common.ini, please.
I think I messed something up because of the similarity of the filenames and the wiki guide from togher.Jolla.com for gemini.
I am still on 2.2.0.29 and still get the error repomd.xml not found.
thank you!

I will do the full file for you when I can. But these are the lines you should take a close look at, and the only lines you modify from the file.

/usr/share/ssu/features.d/adaptation-community-common.ini
CODE
http://repo.merproject.org/obs/nemo:/devel:/hw:/common/sailfish_latest_%(arch)/


/usr/share/ssu/features.d/adaptation-community.ini
CODE

Also be sure to perform
CODE
ssu re 3.0.0.5



Edit:
Everyone, I will be updating the OP of this thread tonight to make the instructions more clear.

Edit: I checked, I did not see any option for AlienDalvik in the Settings application. From my understanding if it was on here I should see it there.

You might check and see if it (and Microsoft Exchange) are available to you in the Jolla store.

Reason I bring it up is that those things are available usually only in paid purchases from Jolla -- such as I did with my Xperia X -- so it would be interesting if they were now available. Unless you have a paid Jolla subscription for your Gemini. And now that I think of it, I believe that I did have to download and install them.

I checked the Jolla store (Official Jolla app), I did not get any search results for it. I tried a few different queries.

Okay, that makes sense. Then the free -- "community" -- edition is the same as the Jolla edition, only no aliendalvik, MS exch., etc.

I should say that having used aliendalvik on my Xperia, I'm unimpressed, partly because I need it for ProtonMail's app and it does not offer alerts, even with every known hack, and partly because Googledroid apps are kind of icky.

Now that you have SFOS 3, what do you think of it? Like the new top menus?

I havent gotten too much time to play around just yet.

The top menus seem like they have utility for sure. I am curious if I can customize it with more than the system options, like a specified app.

I am not noticing too much different off the bat. Certainly I appreciate it has security fixes.

Regarding the Android app alerts- I did see some mentioning of a hack to get that working but it was only a thread I read once while researching AlienDalvik- I am sure you know more about this than I and likely tried it.
