I cannot succeed to boot Sailfish [SOLVED]
« on: June 27, 2018, 12:05:46 pm »
hi,
after triple flashing (Android, Linux, Sailfish OS), I reboot, press ESC+gray button and I get always Recovery Menu, not Sailfish.
Am I wrong or SFOS is not installed?

Help,
salvo

I had the same problem, then I read the Flashing page carefully...
Press Esc until the Gemini vibrates, then stop pressing Esc and then press the silver side button until the screen turns on.
The buttons you press depends on the boot order of course so check the page used to create the scatter file if unsure.

hi Mark,
then I succeeded so:
restart; after buzz (vibrate) press silver button and soon ESC until the led over TAB became purple and appeared the logo, then related both and SFOS booted.

Same happened to me before taking care to release the Esc (On) key after first vibrate, then press the side key (I choose to have SailfishOS on Boot menu #2 on my Gemini).

@salvomic, may you add '[SOLVED]' to your initial post?
