We just discovered an issue in both 1.0.0.5 and 1.0.1.10 today which causes update of the store token required for accessing store repositories to fail. A fix for that has been pushed a few minutes ago: The update to version 1.0.1.12 you might be seeing on your device soon contains exactly this one fix to keep store access working.

My Jolla arrived this morning, and I've been playing with it all day. It is by far the most exciting device and operating system I've used in a long, long time. When it arrived, the first update to the operating system was already waiting for me to be installed - and only a few hours later, another update is hitting the device. They have promised another large bugfix and stability update before the end of the year, with updates with new features arriving early next year.

These men and women know what they're doing. They're not overselling, and they keep their promises. A very promising start.

I wouldn't say they were crappy (everything works), but as a retired engineer, I'd say that this is a developer phone and I don't drop it on the floor very often (I did accidentally and it burst open but wasn't hurt). I have a ZTE Open and for $79 (unlocked) I think the value is there. It could use more system memory. But everything works. I can make calls (just put in a SIM card), play music, play games, and write programs that run on it.

If anyone wants to know more about the practical Firefox OS programming, my blog is http://firefoxosgaming.blogspot.com/.

Firefox OS is still growing but growing fast. And the main point is that the barrier to entry is very low.
