Carsten Munk, chief research engineer at Jolla, announced the third ‘Early Adopter Release’ of Sailfish for the Nexus 4. Let me stress that this is very much still a work-in-progress, and your device may explode or kill hummingbirds. This release brings Sailfish for Nexus 4 up to par with version 22.214.171.124 that’s current for Jolla phones.
This installation image is for early adopters only, meaning we know that some things are not functional or perhaps even broken — please see the release notes below. We are excited to get all of you properly included in the early stages of the project. Do note that this SailfishOS image is strictly for personal and non-commercial usage only.
If you have a spare Nexus 4 lying around, this might be a good moment to give Sailfish a try.
I hope they get to the point where they can release images for other phones. I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 that is just aching for something besides Android being on there.
What I’d really love to see is something like the N900, but with the thinness of my Note3 (don’t really need the extra screen) but would not mind at all for a little more thickness for a hardware keyboard.
Maemo 5 ran nicely enough on a 600mhz phone, Throwing the quad core monstrosity that the Note 3 has at it would be epic.
Granted, I understand this is a SailfishOS post, but I think it could do extremely well on meatier hardware. Especially since it has ‘real’ multitasking.
