How to access files from call recordings?

I’d like to access the call recording files. This has been made impossible in the last os update. I can still listen to the files on my phone (jolla 1), but I want to be able to sent the files to my computer as well.

There is an option to sent the files via email, but this doesn’t work because the mail app has no access to the files either and just sends an email with an empty attachment.

It would be greatly appreciated if anyone can can help me with this.

Fire(Sail)jail stroke again?

Just check /home/$USER/CallRecordings directory.


Thanks for helping me.

I don’t know what that means. Sorry for being such a noob.

This is where I used to find them. But since the the last update “call recordings can no longer be accessed by normal apps” and I no longer see that folder. The folder either moved or its rights have been changed.

edit: I also tried “files as root” from open repos, didn’t help.


if it helps…


Thanks @amaretzek, But I don’t think that’s the same problem. My phone records fine. My problem is that I don’t know how to access the files. Also the topic you linked is about sailfish and I’m on 3.4.0 as my phone no longer receives updates.

Ah, yes. Of course. You said Jolla1!

Then @amaratzek 's hint is not for you (but me on my test device :frowning: ).

You need to enable developer mode and get root (I do hope you what great responsibility comes with great power? :wink: )

Then take a look at

You may use file-browser-beta as root from openrepos as well.

Thanks! while you were typing I found the same path in the comments of the topic @amaretzek linked. A while ago I installed the ‘file browser as root’ app and can access the files that way. So Yaay, no developer mode needed.

Now I can use root to copy the files to a folder that nemo can access and push them to my desktop with KDE Connect. Not the most elegant solution, but as long as no-one posts a better one I can live with that.

A big thanks to both of you for thinking along with me.
