Note that after baking µSD card and booting phone, as per [https://www.reddit.com/r/pinephone/comments/f1l7bm/sailfish_os_on_pinephone_best_os_so_far_in_my/fh8o0s2/ Reddit comment] you have to adjust autobrightness settings in order to actually see interface.

SFOS for pinephone no longer has a defect with the auto brightness! There is currently a problem with the lockscreen not displaying unless you have a sim card in the phone - doesn't have to be an active one. If you're not familiar with SFOS, be prepared by having a (free) Jolla account and pay attention to the tutorial - the interface works great but isn't immediately obvious. If you are familiar with SF you can skip the tutorial by touching all 4 corners starting top left. There is a poor selection of apps available from the Jolla store. To enable openrepos.net install the Storeman app by downloading the rpm from https://openrepos.net/content/osetr/storeman. You may need to get the rpm onto the phone by other means as the built in browser is not working at the moment. Press the rpm file and you will be asked to install it. Once you have the Storeman app installed browse the store and add repository first from the pulley menu before installing the app you want. The Webcat browser on openstore works.
