* Sometimes the first run stalls before the tutorial. Reboot and it will start 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.
* If you're not familiar with Sailfish OS, pay attention to the tutorial - the interface works great, but not immediately obvious. If you are familiar with it, you can skip the tutorial by touching all 4 corners starting top left.
