Does anyone else read this as saying if you buy Sailfish X you might be able to install the licensed bits on any (single) Sailfish device linked to your account? Even if there's a vendor check the compact could still work...

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if it's linked to the model if not the IMEI number. Your Jolla account tracks that stuff here: https://account.jolla.com/devices

Interesting - never checked my account. What does it say for an Xperia X? Android works on the dual sim so it's not entirely locked to the official X's model number.

After some testing, I realized that when I use Whatsapp, even if I close the app through the launcher, it still shows online. Is it normal or is a know thing?

Open the Settings app, go to Apps > Whatsapp and uncheck the 'Allow application background services to start on bootup option'

I'm not sure if the 3.4.xxx generation of kernel with which we are stuck (thanks to Qualcomm) will be able to support all the required LXC features.

It also requires on the android-specific kernel mods (as far as I remember: mostly the weird android message bus). So even if you're on a recent/rolling distro, you need to compile and load a couple of modules.

Did someone with a community Xperia compact build and a Sailfish X license on their account actually tried it ?
That would be very interesting...

By default (if you don't do the config mentionned in the previous post) that's the *normal* WhatsApp behaviour. (They got criticized a lot because of that, specially at the beginning when 2.5G/3G data plan used to be expensive) You cannot shut it down, it's going to *always* be up, no matter what - according to WhatsApp because that "mimics the always-on feature of SMS".

Whilst subsequently removed, if device treated as AquaFish the latter application could be installed although not advocated.

So, is it just me or does the VPN stuff not work at all? Lol. I can get "connected" but it doesn't create any routes or do anything useful.

Has anyone successfully formatted an sd card from the settings menu on the official sailfishX port?

I have an empty 128 GB card i was trying, but when i select format it takes me to the 'delete all files' button, which i press, but when i try to format again the same thing happens and no format.

If i want to use btrfs on a card this size do i need to format this externally to the phone, or is this pointless because of the btrfs driver issue mentioned up thread?
