NB The first run sometimes stalls before the tutorial. Reboot and it starts from setting the security pin.

The homescreen may be locked unless you boot with a sim card inserted. An old expired sim will do. If you do not have a SIM card on hands, do NOT set a security code on first boot. When a screen with a loading circle is displayed, just left/right swipe it away.

May 4th 2020: 3.3.0.16 release. Nextcloud integration.
Sept 17. Calls work.....sort of. Volunteer troubleshooters required. 4G works. Nextcloud sync works. Camera is work-in-progress.
October 10. The most recent build still has call problems. The battery indicator stays at value on boot and the battery discharges very quickly. Apart from all that SFOS is still the snappiest most responsive UI, with none of the scaling and lagging problems that make phosh such a drag.
October 20. New build improves battery indicator but it's still erratic. Calls still problematic. No camera.
December 1. New image updated to 3.4.0.24. If you SSH, the user is "defaultuser" instead of "nemo".
On the pinephone the boot process still takes 2 or three attempts before getting to the enter security pin screen.
   
   
If you're not familiar with SFOS 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 limited selection of apps available from the Jolla store, the vast majority are hosted on openrepos.net. The Storeman app for openrepos is now preinstalled, and also Webcat browser as the built in browser is not working at the moment.
