Sailfish OS for Sony Xperia 1 and 5

Sailfish OS 4.4.0.68 for Sony Xperia 1 and 5

These release notes cover Sailfish OS 4.4.0.68 for the following devices:

  • Sony Xperia 1 (J8110, J9110)
  • Sony Xperia 5 (J8210, J9210)

Intro

This is the first public release of this port. The devices have the same functionality level as the Xperia 10 II port made by Jolla, except in areas such as VoLTE where public packages are missing or in relation to Sailfish X features which are (currently) unavailable.

Flashing

To install Sailfish OS on your device please follow the install instructs in the flashing-readme.txt file included in the archive or read the offical flashing instructions for either the Xperia 10 II or Xperia 10 III:

Just make sure to download the software binaries for your device instead of the ones mentioned in the instructions:

Known issues

  • SailfishOS-SonyXperia/bugs#33

    • Because of a missing package inside the adaptation-common repository Windows binaries for flashing are missing inside
      the zip archive. To workaround that issue have added another zip file that includes these files as “droid-flashingtools.zip” to this release.
  • SailfishOS-SonyXperia/bugs#37

    • The launcher icons on the Xperia 1 are to small because there’s no bigger graphics-theme size than 2.0.

Project

The Github project that hosts this repository and other ports can be found here:

About

The goal of this project is to port additional Sony devices on top of Jolla’s existing adaptations while staying as close as possible to the existing ports and contributing back to the upstream where possible.

Most of the changes from Jolla ports are adopted in both directions since the issues that one port has usually apply to the sister device of the same generation (e.g. Xperia 10 II → Xperia 1/5).
This is the reason why changes from Jolla’s port end up in the changelog for these port,
in many cases because they also affect the specific port but not always.

Where possible changes that were done for this port go back to the Mer-Hybris repositories such as the kernel or droid repositories.
