Patchmanager 2.0

Your rating: None Average: 5 (13 votes)

Welcome to Patchmanager 2.0 testing!

This new version allow install patches from web catalog:

Web patches features:

  • Every patch will have special "compatible" field with matching SailfishOS version: you will be notified if certain patch is not compatible with your SailfishOS version
  • Changelog for every release
  • Screenshots inside patchmanager client
  • Rating and activations count

General Patchmanager 2.0 improvements:

  • No more settings menu entries: patch settings will be opened from Patchmanager.
    Old rpm patches can be modified to move settings entry into patchmanager
  • Developer mode option is to (try to) install patch to incompatible SailfishOS version.
    Should be handy after new sfos version released.
  • Menu entry to unapply all patches.

Please consider posting bugs and ideas to forum thread:


Patchmanager allows you to apply patches: tweaks for Sailfish OS that might modify the user experience in order to enhance it, or personnalize it.

See this TMO thread for more information.

objectifnul's picture => 502 bad gateway

EDIT1 - fixed now. Some patches still displayed in red (means not compatible with current OS release I guess). 'catalogue web' in Patchmanager 2.0 unresponsive. Just wait?

EDIT2 - 'Catalogue Web' now working, some patches still appear in red.

EDIT3 - 502 error again :-(

An update is obviously badly needed at this point. Has the project been abandoned?

Do you have any problem with it?

The restart services function not working is a bit annoying but other then that I haven't expericened any other problems with it.

Hi. If I install Patchmanager 2.0 on Xperia X( all Sailfish-default icons are missing. But Patchmanager itself is working fine.
If someone else runs into this, you can get it back by reinstall the theme icons..
"pkcon install sailfish-content-graphics-default-z1.75-base"

The newest compatibility version available when uploading or editing a patch is, but the latest version of SFOS is so the patch manager doesn't let me install a patch that I know will work.

Saw that it's fixed now. Thanks!

2 months have passed since your comment, is there a fix in the making or have you abandoned Patchmanager 2.0?

Still here on last update.

Markkyboy's picture

I have also updated my other Jolla1, but the same problem exists.

I upgraded from patchmanager to patchmanager 2.0 today, and I could not find the icon to start the patchmanager 2.0 anymore. That's because it's within the Settings app now. Just a note for others, who are also searching for the icon :-) A big Thanks to you, coderus.

how to activate mazelock after installing it? it shows no menu or something like that... its a great app!

coderus's picture

You need to activate patch inside patchmanager, then restart system services in pulldown menu, or just reboot phone.

eisen's picture

i can't, there is no menu on top...

coderus's picture

inside list of patches click on glow dot to activate patch. Then use pulldown menu to restart preloaded services.
