Secure Updating to 3.4

Hi

I have a Jolla 1 and want to update to 3.4 but my experience updating Xperia X is not good, what i need to do?

Uninstal Storeman and aliendalvik and after update install both again?.. How to uninstall aliendalvik?

Thx.

I had 0 troubles with my JollaPhone (had massive issues with Xperia 10). I didn’t any of the known offending applications/patches installed on the JollaPhone, but I had both Storeman and AlienDalvik on it. You can always install app called sfos-upgrade from Storeman if you don’t trust the GUI method.

Hi there, I have never had any issues with updating the J1 via GUI. I don’t use patches and always carefully read the release notes. For what it’s worth, here is my “checklist” for updating:

  • Make a Backup to SD-card

  • Delete unnecessary files, etc. to maximize space (I have at least 5GB open)

  • Enable Developer Mode, Remote access and enter a password

  • In terminal, as devel-su: btrfs-balancer balance

  • For openrepos/Storeman: In terminal, as nemo: for i in $(ssu lr 2>&1 | grep openre | cut -d" " -f3); do ssu dr $i ; done
    (This will disable all openrepos repositories. Don’t worry about the warning messages.)

  • Uninstall all problem-causing apps as per release notes (I uninstalled Storeman before 3.4 update, just in case)

  • Switch the phone off and back on. Stop Android support.

  • Under Settings, SailfishOS Updates: Select “Check for Updates” from the pulley menu again. When ready, select “Download” from the pulley menu. When ready select “Update” from the pulley menu.

  • Once update is complete and phone is finished booting, open terminal and as nemo run for i in $(ssu lr 2>&1 | grep openre | cut -d" " -f3); do ssu er $i ; done to enable openrepos repositories again.

  • In terminal, as devel-su: pkcon refresh

  • In terminal, as devel-su: zypper refresh

  • In terminal, as devel-su: btrfs-balancer balance
