Sailfish OS release6 for Fairphone 2

Sailfish OS release6 is now ready. Installation and update instructions can be found at Adaptations/libhybris/Install SailfishOS for fp2 - Mer Wiki.
Note that updating to this release is required before updating to the next release. If you are updating from a release older than read the instructions carefully to see which intermediate updates are needed. Latest image (and also changelog with instructions) can be found here. Highlights of the new release:

  • Updated to Sailfish OS
  • Based on Android 6 (18.04 release)

MD5sum for the installation zip: 1636356aa8a6c581f9eac59e61b4223a

Sorry again for the delay with the release.

IMPORTANT When updating from releases older than Sailfish OS be very careful to update first to following the instructions at

Known issues:

  • Camera configuration files are no longer used. If you encounter any issues with camera please report them.

Upgraded about an hour ago. So far no camera issues - front, back and video recording all is fine.

Btw. regarding “devel-su version --dup”:
The instructions state to run “devel-su ssu release …” instead of the usual “ssu release …” when upgrading from 3 to 4 (I had this situation). IIRC this involved copying some config file manually. Do you think it is worth checking for future releases?

Thanks for the good work as always! :+1:

I added the missing devel-su to the instructions.


Does anyone know if there are md5 or sha256 hashes for the Sailfish OS release? The download site is simple http, not encrypted https. I would love to be able to confirm from another site that the file I downloaded corresponds with what its supposed to be, and though its not fool-proof (no security measure is!), a cryptographic hash would at least show me that my download was correct. Thanks!


I could of course add some hashes to the release notes in these threads. Edit: added md5sum to the initial post. I can also add that to the wiki page so then we have two places for it.


Thanks you for your quick response!

I see that Sailfish OS is available on the server and update works best as ever :smiley:. May thanks @mal :clap:.
