N950 and Jolla Phone Repo's


I've been hacking around with the Jolla phone repos and the N950 for the last few days and wanted to share the kickstart method which avoids much of the manual zypper/ssu stuff 

References are


Nemomobile N950 Installation Instructions - https://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Nemo/Installing

Using the platform sdk create a filesystem image 

sudo mic create fs sailfish2-armv7hl-n950.ks -o . --pkgmgr=zypp --arch armv7hl  --pack-to=vgrade-sailfish.tar.bz2


Flash to N950

sudo tar --numeric-owner -xjf vgrade-sailfish.tar.bz2 -C /mnt






Please help as things still need fixing, time is not setting correctly audio not working as it was on the previous hacks etc, but this should allow more controlled development.

A pirate pad is operating at http://piratepad.net/nVuyI2uxrY you are very welcome to contribute

So is this an already compressed form of the rzr method. So no need to do all the zypper stuff?

Hey, thank for your shared!
I think wee can get audio working by compile and install gst-ffmpeg 0.10.11 from source.

Does this work for n9 or it's designed only for n950?

it works on N9 ()if using ububoot) however it seems maalit(keyboard) crashes so could not connect to wifi and second boot gave me blank screen.
