Hello Jolla Enthusiasts. A third party developer has ported Persecute, a WhatsApp client for Harmattan to Sailfish OS, under the name of Mitäkuuluu. The app is still under massive development, but it will be available via the Jolla Harbour when the application will be stable enough.
In this article I will show you how to instal Mitakuuluu on the first Jolla smartphone, running Saiflish OS. Follow the instructions exactly, in order to get a successful installation:
1. Download the Mitakuuluu app from OpenRepos
2. Enable the Jolla Developer Mode and allow SSH-connection
3. Connect your Jolla device to your computer, via USB
4. Copy the harbour-tethering rpm package to the Jolla device
5. Install the package via the command line interface:
$ pkcon install-local harbour-mitakuuluu-0.1-18.armv7hl.rpm
For those who don’t know yet, 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, Yandex Store, Amazon App Store, Aptoide and 1Mobile Android Market.
