    These guys are ready to blow up. And about time too. I've been waiting for them to mature.

    Sailfish OS and Sony Open Devices Program

    Not just that, but look how they've bounced back from almost toppling over the edge. These ex-Nokia meego folks are tough. And if you've ever demoed Sailfish you know it could be the cat's meow. Gesture driven and well thought out. Love the "Live Covers" as well.



    Anybody excited to see Sailfish OS coming to Xperia X with an official ROM?

    So, as luck would have it I traveled to Portugal for vacation and Sailfish X is currently only available in the EU, Norway and Switzerland.

    Yup, I downloaded it. I'll install it on my Xperia X single SIM when I return to the states.

    Looking forward to hearing about your experience with it.

    When I get back home I'll install it. I hope to do a review video to post to the sites.

    I'm pretty excited to install it, but it isn't fair to my wife if I spend days of our vacation flashing and setting up.

    Looking good so far. Had a bit of confusion over the USB drivers for Fastboot. Two different instruction sets and I was following the wrong one at first. Got it sorted and got Sailfish X installed on my Xperia X F5121.

    Have the phone jumping through a few hoops already. Microsoft Integration is pretty deep. Loving the UI.

    A couple of hurdles to get over still. Need a YouMail apk to sideload and trying to get my Iron browser to sync from desktop. Other things have proceeded pretty easily. So far it's a pretty good return for the time I put in setting up. Very pleased.

    Moar soon.
