Sailfish OS Has Been Ported To Work On Nokia N9

Hello Linux Geeksters. As a reminder, Sailfish OS has been ported to  work on Nokia N950, a while ago. Also, Sailfish OS 1.0.1.10, the latest Sailfish OS version available, it has been successfully installed on Nokia N9, another Nokia device that uses the Nemo/Meego Linux system as default.

There is no official guide yet, for porting Sailfish OS on the Nokia devices with support for Meego, this portings being done by third party geeks.

For more information, see the presentation video above.

For those who don’t know, Jolla is a project developed by former Nokia employees. The first Jolla smartphone is running on Sailfish OS, a modified Megoo Linux system, which is Android compatible, uses Wayland as the default display server , uses Nokia N9′s Maliit touchscreen keyboard and comes with interchangeable covers, allowing the users to easily switch them, in order to change the color/model of the phone and comes with impressive hardware specifications. Apps can be installed via the Jolla Store, which will provide both Jolla and Android apps, or via F-Droid and Yandex Store, but some tweaking can be done, in order to get apps directly from the Google Play Store.
