Updating your device

Your device must be connected to the Internet and signed in to your Jolla account. If your Jolla account is registered for Early Access releases you should receive an OS update notification when an update is available. If you have decided not to take the Early Access registration then you will get the OS update typically one week later.

We warmly recommend making some 3-4 GB of free space to the internal storage of your device before starting the update. Move your pictures and videos to the SD card (or to your PC or cloud service). After the upgrade turn on the option to save pictures and videos directly from the camera to the memory card (Settings > Apps > Camera). This is important particularly in case of "Jolla 1" devices (product name "Jolla" in Settings > About product).

This is the usual drill before attempting to update your devices:
  • If you use Phonehook from OpenRepos, uninstall it before upgrading.
  • If you use oFono from OpenRepos, revert to the official oFono before upgrading (or else you may face problems with LTE etc.).
  • If you use Patchmanager, revert all applied patches before upgrading.

Take a backup of your data before attempting to update your device and save the backup to an SD card or to some other off-device location (PC, your cloud service). Note that videos and images are not included in cloud-based backups. Do not reboot the device while the update is in progress. Do keep the phone connected to a battery charger during the whole process. Device screen may blank out during the update process; you may waken the display by a short press on the power key to monitor the progress.

For detailed instructions on updating software, visit Zendesk [ ].

Known issues
  • Reliance Jio SIM cards (India) work in SIM slot #2 only according to some reports. We are not aware of similar issues in other networks.
  • Bluetooth pairing may occasionally fail (on Jolla Tablet, in particular), or turning Bluetooth ON may fail. In such cases it is best to restart the Jolla device and try again.
  • Bluetooth pairing may fail with some car models. Sometimes synchronizing the phonebook may fail, too, and some problems with audio playback appear. Especially on Jolla C. To be investigated and fixed.
  • OpenVPN does not always work.

Aliendalvik [on Jolla C devices: version 1.0.63]

•Vulnerabilities in Alien Dalvik fixed (Jolla C only)

No Android Runtime updates and security fixes for the first Jolla? Owners of the classic Jolla punished for having been there to support Jolla too early and for too long?

They say it is a licensing issue.

Which most probably translates into "we'd need to pay Myriad (or whoever now has the rights to Alien Dalvik) some more money to have it licensed for update not only on the Jolla C but also on the original Jolla".

Anyway, that the Android Runtime will never go past Android 4.x is a known thing, but that owners of the Jolla won't be getting even just security updates anymore is a wholly different thing. So, basically, for them Android support has been frozen.

But the most bizarre part of it is that:

- Jolla knows that they will never be able to go past Android 4.x support as Google doesn't permit it

- Jolla knows that they are fully dependent on whoever owns the rights to Alien Dalvik and can either stop developing/supporting it at any point, or freely increase licencing fees and terms

... yet it has absolutely no impact on their approach of still fully relying on Android compatibility and doing absolutely nothing to finally start building a native ecosystem.

Even with security patches and updates of Android Runtime for selected few latest devices, how long can they still rely on Android 4.x when Android 8.0 is about to come out?

This is a SUICIDAL path.
