Sailfish OS 2.1.4 Lapuanjoki is now available to early access. See Blog or TJC.


Release notes 2.1.4 / Lapuanjoki

Update version history

2018-02-20: was released to Early Access subscribers. Japanese and Korean removed from the list of new languages (not yet quite ready).
2018-02-dd: 2.1.4.x to be released to all users (not Aqua Fish).

Size of update

The download size of the update depends on the device type and on the OS version currently in the device. Some typical values below:
- Jolla C from to 380 MB
- Jolla 1 from to 340 MB
- Xperia X from to 390 MB
Release Highlights

This list contains examples of new features (and some bug fixes) added to SailfishOS since the 2.1.3 release. The release notes of upgrade 2.1.3 can be found here:

Instructions for installing Sailfish OS to Sony Xperia X devices are here - covering Windows, Linux and Mac computers.

CalDav syncing getting stuck fixed
CalDav reminders no longer trigger twice after sync
Dropbox account creation failure fixed (recent regression)
Active Sync settings UI polished
Weather service in Events View now tracks network connectivity status, and automatically refreshes when connectivity is regained.

Add support for camera HAL introduced in Android 7.
Prepare for notification improvements.
Update device configurations.
Improve camera startup speed on Android 7 based devices.
Solved an issue where certain apps (i.e. Wechat) were unable to record voice messages.

Device management (MDM)

Activation displays a disclaimer to user
Date and time API extended to support all time zones.

Fix search losing focus after backstepping from Email viewer
Downloaded attachments can now be picked as attachments for new emails.


Facebook is going to enforce "Use Strict Mode for Redirect URIs" on 2018-03-19. Because of this we have had to change a redirect URI in application settings of Sailfish OS. See ng/ .

HW adaptation

Xperia: support of BTRFS filesystem for SD cards added
Xperia: low memory killer enabled.


Hungarian and Slovenian layouts added.


New system languages: Chinese (Taiwan), Czech, Dutch, Estonian, Greek, Hungarian, Portuguese (Brazil), Slovenian, Spanish (Bolivia), Turkish.
Many thanks to you our valued community people for the translations!


Show the correct playback state when the playlist playback stops
Order music albums by date released, instead of alphabetically.


Send button in Messages app touch area enlarged for easier use.


Qt framework updated 5.6.3, including hundreds of bug fixes
Tracker updated to the latest V1 version to possibly fix some metadata extraction failures.


Search is now supported.


Notification banners can now be swiped away with horizontal flick.

OS updates

PackageKit framework upgraded to newer version
OS updates are now a privileged operation run as proper system-side service
OS update process rewritten to reduce dependencies and thus potential causes of failures
OS update descriptions now support links.


Enable (hint) showing apps in fullscreen on emulator
Resize mode set for created views to resize root object conveniently.
App icon size variant 172x172px introduced for Full HD displays
3rd party app icons finally scale properly to different display resolutions.

relocated in development repositories to make the app resistant against API changes.

For detailed changelog, see .
Updating your device

Your device must be connected to the Internet and signed into 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:

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:


If you installed update manually from command line you need to do the following fix to get the repositories working:

[nemo@Sailfish ~]$ devel-su
[root@Sailfish nemo]# sed -ie 's/' /usr/share/ssu/repos.ini
[root@Sailfish nemo]# ssu ur


Installing OS update 2.1.4 automatically removes **Warehouse** (versions <= 0.3) and **Storeman** (versions <= 0.0.15) applications.

This is necessary because 2.1.4 brings in the new PackageKit that has changed its API. Warehouse and Storeman are locked against the older version of the library. If they are not removed during the update, they block the upgrade of PackageKit-Qt5, which then breaks all further updates (Settings page would get stuck on 'Preparing update' and version --dup would fail with an InvalidArgs error).

Warehouse and Storeman can only be installed again after they switch to the new PackageKit API.

In addition, take the following advice into account:

If you use Phonehook or Callrecorder from OpenRepos, uninstall it before upgrading.
If you use oFono from OpenRepos, revert to the official oFono before upgrading.
If you use Patchmanager, revert all applied patches before upgrading.

About SD cards

Please read our help article on SD cards supported by Sailfish OS:
Known issues

Bluetooth pairing and audio connections may still fail in some circumstances
Utility "Clear tracker database" ("Refresh media database") is failing - will be fixed in update 2.2.0 (the next one)
VPN is still at beta level.

Known issues specific to Xperia X

Screenshots are placed to the end of the thumbnails list if Gallery app is open while taking the screenshot.
Issues with mobile data persist on some SIM cards
Xperia X does not power up due to an alarm
Manual network/carrier search lists all networks by the same name (the name of the SIM provider). Use automatic search. If not possible, you need to try several items in the manual search results, unfortunately. The top most item is not necessarily the one that can serve you. (still valid with most SIM cards)
VPN does not work.
Bluetooth: still problems with car equipment, some audio devices and computers.
Waking up the device by double-tap does not work
Loudspeaker volume level cannot be adjusted high enough (but echo cancellation was added to the audio path in 2.1.4)
not working: fingerprint, barometer, step counter.
compass (or gyro?) working in Google Maps, not yet natively.
Issues with video playback and video recording (less than before).
FM radio missing.
Even though all CPU cores get eventually enabled, foreground apps do not always run on the big cores.
