Hi Coderus, got a problem - I updated Nurmonjoki to 3.0.0.8. Is some compatible version of this patch available? Thanks for reply :) 

coderus's picture

the one from web catalog should work, if not - let me know.

Malakay's picture

Yeah, working :) Great. One suggestion - I have patch manager 3 and it is checking compatibility of patch with current system version. So your patch cannot be installed via patchmanager, because there is written, that patch is compatible with 2.1.0.10 and 2.1.0.11 and older versions, not 3.0.0.8 > it cant be installed via patchmanager. I had to install via storeman.

you can use godmode

What is godmode?

oh, by the way, patch "always show close icon in app-switcher", made by ancelad, looks like it was not updated for a while and ancelad looks "inactive". Can you help with making SFOS3 compatible version?

Look up "God mode" (video gaming) on your own, but in the context of Patchmanager it addresses the "Developer mode" in its top-pulley.
It does not make you invincible though, rather the opposite. ;)

And only use RPM-Patches (e.g. from OpenRepos), if there is no version of a specific Patch in Patchmanager's web-catalog!

Ah, okay :) Thanks :)

But is not better to make some minor change that patch will show compatibility with SFOS 3.0.0.8? I think more "uninformated" users like me will appreciate it :)

Hi Coderus, I have Nurmonjoki 2.2.1.18 and patchmanager 3, it tells me "failed to apply patch". Is some newer, compatible version on the way please? :)

coderus's picture

works just fine on my 2.2.1 device. you should check possible incompatibility with some other patch?

coderus's picture

Wow, i should check it)

Sorry, everythings fine. Stupid me! I simply had to restart the UI. Because of my stupidity and your hard work I will donate to you right now. Cheers.

broncheoli's picture

Well, sorry to bother you again!

I checkt and all the rotations that are done are built in. It seems the patch does not work any more at all.

Thanks, broncheoli.

Dear Coderus!

This great patch used to rotate even the "home"-screen. After updating to SOS 2.0.4 yesterday, still all the apps rotate but "home"-screen stays up right (and also all the minimalised screens). Because also this rotation is some kind of usefull I thought I report this issue. On my AquaFish with SOS 2.0.2 this feature still works.

Thanks for your great work and greetings from Austria, broncheoli.

Is this responsible for Alien Dalvik free rotation too? As that seems not to affect it properly.

Guys, you should fix one thing. I had incoming call today, pulled out my Jolla (with your patch enabled) and pulled screen to answer... - Hello! Hello! I can't hear you! Damn, phone app was rotate too so I hold my Jolla with the mic pressed to my ear :)

coderus's picture

No

Awesome

Seems to work fine, though I did notice a problem with app grouping (swipe up from bottom)  . A  folder with lots of icons (i.e. more  than 7)  will only display the first 7 icons when viewed in landscape.

coderus you are great, at least you're patches are. Thank you so much.

On 1.1.7.28 homescreen rotate too, and it's unusable. But applications rotation works great.

MoritzJT's picture

This patch is awesome! It allows orientation of any QML interface it seems. Spacings should be fine if coded correctly from the beginning regarding ancors and padding etc.

Just WOW!

 

Thanks so much coderus!

coderus's picture

"should be" is how the things are works for some apps :D

MoritzJT's picture

Yeah, a white-/black-list for this would be the right way to go for now. Talking about how things should be done by every dev facing UI design ;-)

coderus's picture

this is a single-line patch, it would never have any settings, lol.

Only working on 1.1.9 ?

coderus's picture

Tested only on 1.1.9.x but probably should work on 1.1.7.x also
