I have been using SFOS since 2020. Now I got a new device and went for a fresh install.
In other words, I’ve been upgrading the first phone since SFOS 3.x., all the way to 22.214.171.124, which is the same version I installed on the new phone.
I noticed some subtle differences and a vague feeling (probably just placebo) that it’s snappier.
If you went through a similar process I’d like to compare notes.
I’ll go first:
- Bluetooth: On my old XA2 I had problems for years, creating workarounds because even a Utilities restart did not help. On the new install, all is good (so far, knock on wood)!
- I’m pretty sure zypper (frontend) was installed previously; the new version doesn’t, apparently in favour of
pkcon, which still uses the libzypp libraries.
- Not sure but I got the impression the installation of original Jolla apps before and after registration has changed and feels more streamlined.
- the username has changed from nemo to defaultuser which has an effect on badly coded applications.
