22.10.2014 – Firmware Update 1.1.0.38 (Uitukka) (opt-in)

os_11038Firmware Update 1.1.0.38 (Uitukka) (opt-in)

 

INFO:

Ihr bekommt das Update nicht einfach so über Einstellung und Update!

Eigentlich wollte Jolla mit dem Release noch abwarten, da sie die Stabilität von QT5.2 verfeinern wollten.

Schreibt Jolla eine Email (update9-opt-in@jolla.com) ohne inhalt.

WICHTIG: Mit der gleichen Email Adresse die ihr in euren Jolla Account zu stehen habt, sonst bekommt ihr kein Update-Aufforderung!

Es dauert ca 20-30 Minuten bis ihr das Update freigeschaltet bekommt.

What’s new

* Automatically save draft emails on page exit
* Accounts framework has undergone a fair amount of unification, making the account setup process more user friendly Fruux, Memotoo and Yahoo! now available as separate provider accounts in the ‘Add accounts’ page.
* Copy unsaved numbers from call log via context menu
* CardDAV support for Fruux and Memotoo service providers (experimental)
* Browser engine updated to Gecko 31 to improve compatibility with various web sites and improving scrolling performance
* Kazakh keyboard layout now available
* Perform general maintenance tasks such as cleaning up backup storage to free space, restarting network connectivity, android runtime etc via Sailfish Utilities app available in Jolla Store. Once installed, you can access it via Settings > System > Utilities

UI interaction changes
* Hierarchy indicator at the top left corner of the view replaced by a single indicator trailing off the edge of the view
* In accounts settings view, changes made are immediately saved. Previously, an explicit user action (pressing ‘Accept’) was required.
* App dialogs are now visually separated from normal app pages by having accept and cancel buttons from the page area to a persistent header

Fetch the update
* This is a huge update given that this brings in Qt5.2. Ensure that you have enough disk space before attempting to upgrade. More information on the possible upgrade issues and workarounds is available in the known issues section below.

Pre-requisites
* Working Jolla account configured on your device
* Charger connected
* Device connected to WLAN or mobile data network
* You have atleast 1.5GB of free disk space on your device

If you are unable to successfully configure the account, please visit account.jolla.com and try to reset your password.

Users running software version < 1.0.4.20
If your device is running software version lower than 1.0.4.20 and have WareHouse app installed (i.e you are using OpenRepos), disable all openrepo repositories before attempting to upgrade your device. Else, you risk breaking the device. Read important-steps-to-do-before-updating and how-to-disable-openrepos-repositories posts for more information.

Update the software
If your Jolla is connected to internet, an OS update notification should pop up shortly. If you just can’t wait, you can manually trigger an OS update check as follows:

* Open Settings app
* Go to System > About Product
* Pull down the pulley menu and select ‘Check for update’
* Once an OS update notification is received, tap on it and follow the instructions.

Do not reboot the device while the OS update installation is in progress. The process takes up to 10 minutes. During the update, the device screen might blank out. You can awaken the display by a short press on the power key to monitor the progress. When the upgrade has completed successfully, you will see the LED light up red before the device restarts.

In rare circumstances, you may have to try a second time to get through the update successfully.

* In addition to that, certain thresholds for when memory killer should kick in has been added

Lock screen
* Attempting to view events (via swipe-up gesture on the lock screen) while the device is locked now brings up the device lock keypad to allow unlocking the device

Events view
* Notification icon handing improved to display a separate error icon if the intended icon could not be loaded for some reason

Settings/Accounts
* Checks for duplicate Twitter, Facebook and Google accounts before saving a newly configured account

Note: Duplication detection can be done only with newly created Facebook accounts. Therefore, if you have a Facebook account already configured prior to this release, it will not be checked as possible duplicate while creating a new Facebook account

Previously, it displayed account’s provider and description
* ‘Add accounts’ page now lists generic accounts separate from named providers   (like Facebook, Google, Twitter, Microsoft Exchange)

Known issues

OS update process
* Currently, checks on available disk space happens very late during the OS upgrade process and will fail in the installation phase if the disk space is low. No error notification is triggered at this point, instead, the installation phase finishes almost immediately and the device reboots. Should this happen, free some disk space and try to install the OS update again.

* OS update may fail due to some other reasons too, for example it may have installed some packages from the new release and still have something left from the old. If the device can boot up, you can try to recover by doing the following. If not, you can attempt to recover the device using the recovery mode.
=> Delete the file /home/nemo/.cache/store-client/os-info
=> Stop the store-client process (for e.g. pkill store-client)
=> Reopen Settings app, check for updates again and attempt to install the OS update again

* We have also noted that if the OS update is attempted while there is long queue of installation of apps from the Store, the system may end up in mixes state (for e.g. select all the apps from startup wizard, and start the system update already while the apps are being installed).
=> In such cases, the OS update appears to be stalled, however it is just waiting for the installations to complete before attempting to upgrade the OS. Just wait patiently, the worst thing to do here is to reboot the device!

Others
* calDAV and cardDAV services are in experimental stage. You may face issues with certain service providers, in which case, please report it in t.j.c. We’ll take a look and try to sort it out.
* Device can get sluggish when it runs out of memory. In such cases, close your open apps to recover from the situation.
* At times, the presence status is as displayed offline even though the accounts are online. In such situations, the UI does not allow the status to be changed to online again.
* Occasionally, certain hidden WiFi networks may not be displayed in scanned results.
* Mobile data counters do not display correct values while on roaming.
* It may take several seconds before recent contacts list is displayed in People app.
* Photos and videos deleted from Gallery may still remain visible in the Camera roll.

Fetch the update
The software update will be first available to our dear users owning “The First one” covers. The rest of our user base will be able to update their devices on the same day, but a few hours later.

Pre-requisites
* Working Jolla account configured on your device
* Charger connected
* Device connected to WLAN or mobile data network

If you are unable to successfully configure the account, please visit account.jolla.com and try to reset your password.

Users running software version < 1.0.4.20
If your device is running software version lower than 1.0.4.20 and have WareHouse app installed (i.e you are using OpenRepos), disable all openrepo repositories before attempting to upgrade your device. Else, you risk breaking the device. Read important-steps-to-do-before-updating and how-to-disable-openrepos-repositories posts for more information.

Update the software
If your Jolla is connected to internet, an OS update notification should pop up shortly. If you just can’t wait, you can manually trigger an OS update check as follows:

* Open Settings app
* Go to System > About Product
* Pull down the pulley menu and select ‘Check for update’
* Once an OS update notification is received, tap on it and follow the instructions.

Do not reboot the device while the OS update installation is in progress. The process takes up to 10 minutes. During the update, the device screen might blank out. You can awaken the display by a short press on the power key to monitor the progress. When the upgrade has completed successfully, you will see the LED light up red before the device restarts.

Note to developers
As a follow up to the Changes to RPM side-loading and packagekit authorization thread in the mailing list, we will introduce a polkit UI in one of the upcoming releases, so users can confirm installation requests. Some apps such as Warehouse will be affected by this change and need to be updated, i.e the app needs to either white-list itself in the polkit policy rules or provide a built-in polkit authentication agent as described in freedesktop.org documentation.

Fetch the update
The software update will be first available to our dear users owning “The First one” covers. The rest of our user base will be able to update their devices on the same day, but a few hours later.

Pre-requisites
* Working Jolla account configured on your device
* Charger connected
* Device connected to WLAN or mobile data network

If you are unable to successfully configure the account, please visit account.jolla.com and try to reset your password.

Users running software version < 1.0.4.20
If your device is running software version lower than 1.0.4.20 and have WareHouse app installed (i.e you are using OpenRepos), disable all openrepo repositories before attempting to upgrade your device. Else, you risk breaking the device. Read important-steps-to-do-before-updating and how-to-disable-openrepos-repositories posts for more information.

Update the software
If your Jolla is connected to internet, an OS update notification should pop up shortly. If you just can’t wait, you can manually trigger an OS update check as follows:

* Open Settings app
* Go to System > About Product
* Pull down the pulley menu and select ‘Check for update’
* Once an OS update notification is received, tap on it and follow the instructions.

Do not reboot the device while the OS update installation is in progress. The process takes up to 10 minutes. During the update, the device screen might blank out. You can awaken the display by a short press on the power key to monitor the progress. When the upgrade has completed successfully, you will see the LED light up red before the device restarts.

In rare circumstances, you may have to try a second time to get through the update successfully.

New connectivity stack for opt-in testing
We’ve been working for a while on updating connman ( the connection manager in SailfishOS) to a newer version. While it fixes connectivity issues in some environments, it comes at a regression risk in some networks. If you are interested in helping us out with testing, you can find more details in the hotfix-opt-in-hotfix-for-connectivity-in-upcoming-update-7 post.

Note to developers
* GConf has now been replaced with DConf. If you are using MGConfItem from mlite or the declarative plugin (declarative plugin is not harbour-whitelisted) then no action is required. mlite MGConfItem has been patched to use DConf as the storage backend. The class MGConfItem name though misleading, has been retained in order to prevent API and ABI breakage.

All GConf data will be migrated from GConf to DConf during the first boot after the update. Schemas however will not be converted to anything.

If you use gconf directly then please consider moving to MGConfItem instead. If you cannot then please realize that DConf API is not stable at all and it can change and break your application. Please consider moving to MGConfItem. gconftool-2 is now gone also and /usr/bin/dconf is the replacement. However care should be taken not to run dconf as root.

Fetch the update

First to the first ones:
The software update will be first available to our dear users owning “The First One” covers. The rest of our user base will be able to update their devices on the same day, but a few hours later.

Heads up: Android apps will be reinstalled:
The Android runtime upgrade will reinstall the Android apps on your device. You will see a visual indication
(spinning on the app icons) in the launcher area. The app icons may get re-arranged after the re-installation. Your data however should remain intact.

Pre-requisites
* Working Jolla account configured on your device.
* Charger connected
* Device connected to WLAN

If you are unable to successfully configure the account, please visit account.jolla.com and try to reset your password.

Users running software version < 1.0.4.20
If your device is running software version lower than 1.0.4.20 and have WareHouse app installed (i.e you are using OpenRepos), disable all openrepo repositories before attempting to upgrade your device. Else, you risk breaking the device. Read important-steps-to-do-before-updating and how-to-disable-openrepos-repositories posts for more information.

Update the software
If your Jolla is connected to WLAN network, an OS update notification should pop up shortly. If you just can’t wait, you can manually trigger an OS update check as follows:

* Open Settings app Go to System Settings->About Product
* Pull down the pulley menu and select ‘Check for update’
* Once an OS update notification is received, tap on it and follow the instructions.

Do not reboot the device while the OS update installation is in progress. The process takes up to 10 minutes. During the update, the device screen might blank out. You can awaken the display by a short press on the power key to monitor the progress. When the upgrade has completed successfully, you will see the LED light up red before the device restarts.

In rare circumstances, you may have to try a second time to get through the update successfully.
