Fetch the update
First to the first ones
The software update will be first available to our dear users owning “The First One” covers. The rest of our user base will be able to update their devices on the same day, but a few hours later.
Heads up: Android apps will be reinstalled
The Android runtime upgrade will reinstall the Android apps on your device. You will see a visual indication (spinning on the app icons) in the launcher area. The app icons may get re-arranged after the re-installation. Your data however should remain intact.
•Working Jolla account configured on your device.
•Device connected to WLAN
Users running software version < 188.8.131.52
If your device is running software version lower than 184.108.40.206 and have WareHouse app installed (i.e you are using OpenRepos), disable all openrepo repositories before attempting to upgrade your device. Else, you risk breaking the device. Read important-steps-to-do-before-updating and how-to-disable-openrepos-repositories posts for more information.
If your Jolla is connected;to WLAN network, an OS update notification should pop up shortly. If you just can’t wait, you can manually trigger an OS update check as follows:
•Open Settings app Go to System Settings->About Product
•Pull down the pulley menu and select ‘Check for update’
•Once an OS update notification is received, tap on it and follow the instructions.
Do not reboot the device while the OS update installation is in progress. The process takes up to 10 minutes. During the update, the device screen might blank out. You can awaken the display by a short press on the power key to monitor the progress. When the upgrade has completed successfully, you will see the LED light up red before the device restarts.
In rare circumstances, you may have to try a second time to get through the update successfully.
