Update sailfishOS from 184.108.40.206 (Aurajoki) to 220.127.116.11 (Fiskarsinjoki)
(for Intex Aqua Fish, Model: l500d)
Latest preview build for SailfishOS - Fiskarsinjoki(18.104.22.168) is released and available for download. SailfishOS uses Mer middleware, has Linux kernel and developed by jolla. The latest release is not yet available on air but can be upgraded using developer mode.
Enable remote SSH
With SailfishOS, debugging a phone is quite simple, one just needs
to enable Developer mode & Remote connection from
Developer tools. Provide the password for user *nemo*(Yes, the
default user is
nemo) or generate password if you choose not to
enter password of your choice.(I never managed to ssh to
IP-address 192.168.2.15 even by setting similar network space)

Login as root using the command
1: [nemo@Sailfish ~]$ devel-su 2: Password: 3: [root@Sailfish nemo]#
Verify the current release by using the command
the latest release on wiki. Say you want to update to latest
release(126.96.36.199, at the time when this post was published), set
the release version using command
ssu release VERSION
1: ssu release 188.8.131.52 2: version --dup
This should take a while.
Remove default package
To remove preinstall package like gaana, search by name using the command =pkcon=(PackageKit Console client).
1: [root@Sailfish ~]# pkcon search name gaana 2: Searching by name 3: Waiting in queue 4: Starting 5: Refreshing software list 6: Querying 7: Installed sailfish-content-partnerspaces-intex-gaana-0.1.5-10.8.1.jolla.armv7hl Gaana partner space application for Intex
Once the exact name of the package is found, go ahead and remove
the package using
pkcon remove PACKAGE_NAME. Exclude version
pkcon should behave like any other package manager found
in various GNU/Linux distros.

Verify & install package
Sometime you may want to check the integrity of an OS. In this
case the command
version --verify will come handy as
Verify an update
After an upgrade, login to the device and verify few parameter as show below.
Finally here’s a screenshot of About product screen showing latest release and device info.
I found SailfishOS much more comfortable to use. The best part is
it has very good user interface as compared to other mobile UI
like Android. Once you have an Jolla account, the device has
access to all package repositories. It has early access to latest
version and upgrade is quite simple. The device comes pre-rooted
with entire GNU/Linux OS and package-manager(
pkcon). One can
install all Android apps either from Jolla store or using Google
