Early access to releases

From the Yliaavanlampi 1.1.2.16 (this update) onwards, Jolla will provide a means for users to "opt-in" to Early Releases.

Early Releases are the next intended public releases, but advanced users are given an option to try it out before the public.
 

Prerequisites

Please ensure that you have some free disk space before attempting to upgrade your Jolla. Check that the upper figure in the circle (see the picture below) on menu page Settings > System > About product does not exceed 11 GB. If it does then delete some video clips or pictures from Phone Memory.

If connected to the internet, your Jolla should receive an OS update notification shortly.

As usual,

  • If your device is running software version lower than 1.0.4.20 and have WareHouse app installed (i.e you are using OpenRepos), disable all openrepo repositories before attempting to upgrade your device.
  • Do not reboot the device while the update is in progress.
  • The device screen may blank out during the update process, you may waken the display by a short press on the power key to monitor the progress.

For detailed instructions on updating software, visit our Help Center.

Once the device has rebooted after a successful upgrade, Android runtime starts to update it's environment. Allow a couple of minutes for it to finish its stuff before taking the phone into regular use. Using the phone during this period can appear sluggish.
