Jolla has released the first builds of Sailfish OS for the Nexus 4. Installation isn't exactly easy, and the builds are far, far from complete or stable (the display is even watermarked to say as such), but it does constitute Sailfish' first steps beyond the Jolla phone.

Take note of all the disclaimers - and if you're okay with taking the plunge, have fun.

They get this working on the Note 3. I would much rather be running SailfishOS over Android.

Going from my N9 to it... I almost feel violated every time I use it. Bring up a browser "Hey, where are you located? Tell us!!!" Uhm, how about NO?

I know exactly how you feel. I used a Nexus 4 followed by an iPhone for quite a while after an N900. They were both beautifully designed devices and worked very well, but I never felt comfortable with them. In both cases it always felt like I was using someone else's device.
