Sailfish X on Xperia X Compact?

I accidently bought an XA2 ultra thinking it would be the same size as an XA2. WOW it is giant. 6" is too much for me. If only my wife felt the same.

Anyways, Barring an XA2, is that compatibility layer for the X compact still working? Is anbox working on it?

I might be able to live without android app support. Otherwise, a standard X. those were solid.

Anbox is canceled. Android on Xc is 4.4 - fading quickly into unusability… You can pretty much consider it Android-less as far as Sailfish goes. Nice phone, though…

Anbox is superseded by Waydroid, which is available from Chum. It doesn’t work on old kernels, though.

I have a Xperia X compact which is still working with Sailfish - nice little device. I haven’t installed the latest update yet, but imagine it should work as well. But like @levone1 wrote, you’d have to live with the very old Android app support.

Can cinfirm 4.5 works as expected on the XC!

I patched a 4.2 image and OTA updated from there.
