What does this have to do with Sailfish?


I thought, that “the last possible version” of SFOS on Xperia 10 III could by now rely on Android 13 instead of Android 12. With good luck, I could you use my Xperia 10 III longer.

That is not how SFOS works, and actually SFOS needs “Android 11”* drivers to work.
That is what you downloaded from here.

*A longer and better explanation is needed here.

Maybe I don’t fully understand SFOS by now, but in your link I read:
" Software binaries for AOSP Android 11.0 – Kernel 4.19 – Lena"

So I thought in future there would be something like:
" Software binaries for AOSP Android 13.0 – Kernel 5.x –…"

And a user of SFOS with newer binaries would profit somehow of that. If this nonsense, this thread should be erased ;-).

might it not result in refreshed aosp packages in the open devices program, perhaps fixing some of the hardware driver related problems with camera, etc?

Does anyone know is it safe to flash Sailfish on Xperia 10 III if the device autoupdated itself to Android 13? If not, could someone give/link for instructions how to downgrade back to safe Android version? Is the factory reset good option?

It is “safe”, but it will maybe possibly most likely NOT work :upside_down_face:

Follow 1 2 and 3 here: Reverting Xperia device to Android OS and reinstalling Sailfish OS

Changed the wording from 100% sure it will not work to more weasel word like “info”…

Has anyone actually tried it yet, possibly also in combination with the latest Android 13 based Sony AOSP binaries for the 10 III?
