Call Recorder app no longer works after OS update

Ever since updating to Vanha Rauma this app doesnt open. I found it using the Storeman app incase anyone was wondering.

After reading the comments for the app in storeman, i found this comment but dont know how to apply the fix:

Disable sailjail in /usr/share/applications/harbour-callrecorder.desktop

if anyone can help me get this app working I would GREATLY appreciate it! I know how to use the built in call recording feature in sailfish, but its not ideal (plus i cant figure out where the recorded call files are actually kept)

I cant believe it, but i actually figured it out myself.

i used a text editing app tinyedit to edit the file harbour-callrecorder.desktop (located in /usr/share/applications) and added to the end of the file:


then saved it to my Documents folder. Then i downloaded ToeTerm and used the command devel-su to run as root, then I used the command: cp harbour-callrecorder.desktop /usr/share/applications

It replaced the file, and now it works great! Hopefully this helps someone else out here.


I have recently accidentally record one call with original OS function and it worked great. No changes needed.

I’m glad you fixed it yourself.

Could you please tell me what device do you have?
I have a Xperia 10 II and I can’t use call recorder, because mic stops working after recording an outgoing call:

I have an xperia 10 plus, and sometimes ot doesnt record both sides of the phone call also, but it seems random whenever it wants to work properly or not. Also, I LOVE my sailfish phone, the price of the phone and price of Sailfish X was worth every penny! In the future if I have a problem with an app, I will try the same fix

edit: does anyone know where the recorded call files are kept when using the built in call recording feature? I know how to display and play the recorded calls, but cant seem to find the files themselves

The recorded call files are in ~/.local/share/system/privileged/Phone/CallRecordings
