N950 Sailfish OS Jolla

This has been around for a few days, and for some reason I thought I had posted it, but clearly I haven’t. So if you follow what’s been happening in the N9 porting effort, you may or may not be aware that recently the community ported Wayland (the software running the Sailfish UI) to Nemo (the base of Sailfish). Pretty much what this means is the community managed to get Sailfish compatible with the N9, it was just missing the Jolla specific UI.

Well, it seems that some adventurous community members have tried (and succeeded) in installing the packages from the SDK onto the N9 and have a very early (Pre-Alpha if you will) build of Sailfish running on the N9. This is not intended to replace Harmattan in anyway at the moment, but its great to see how close we are to having Sailfish fully operational on the N9.
