Всего Вам самого светлого, вы не думали добавить опцию *empty folder name* как в патче MoreFoldersIcon ? Патчи между собой не совместимы...посоветуйте что нибудь.

After update and applying the patch the homescreen and launcher are empty and no ap is shown. I can still see the events from and the ambience switcher. I connected via SSH. How can I remove the patch? Please help!

Good thing I read your comment! I was just about to reinstall this essential patch after upgrading to, but now I'll hold off and hope for an update. Sorry about what happened to you, but at least your warning will help others...

I also have problems applying the patch with latest SFOS update. Do you know the cause? Release notes from Jolla mention some launcher related fixes, so that's most probably an issue? Would be nice if ca figure it out. Thanks in advance.

coderus's picture

It's EZ, but i have no time for that right now. Not a problem for you to open folder icon and revert to default icons for now.

naytsyrhc's picture

No, no problem at all. Take your time. Your effort is really appreciated. Thanks for looking/confirming. Looking forward to a patch soon.

Hi, there is some problem with new OS update Folder icons are disappeared.

naytsyrhc's picture

The patch will be removed on system update (in fact you should have unapplied the patch yourself before updating, as Jolla always recommends in release notes). Without patch, icons from folders disappear. But the problem is that reapplying patch doesn't seem to work on, have the same issue.

Can't apply the patch in - fast update would be worth 5 bucks ...

Getting a bug where app drawer become empty.
How to reproduce : open app drawer, open one app ( warehouse in my case, cause the launching time is long > for the bug ) open right now app drawer again, go to a folder, launch an app.

1/2 time, all my apps and folders disappear from app drawer.

Currently rebuilding my environment after factory reset and SFOS update to (not ready for 2.0.xx)

Missing a compatibility table for this patch and some others: try, fail, try next, fail, etc. Cumbersome. Note: v0.1.4.1 is OK with SFOS

malibu's picture

Thanks for this note ;)

coderus's picture

I'm not supporting old outdated releases and peoples using it :)

objectifnul's picture

I know. It's a problem.

 The only idea is to find a better home for your Jolla Phone, where new owner will use it with more love than you :)
