Sad that Jolla won't ever provide a configuration option that you could use to provoke a situation without coverage. This was the only way to ensure no GSM connectivity and during train rides it was really useful :)

Could you evaluate support fpr, seems like i cant and some others have reported their modem being stuck at 2G, even though with the same hardware and mobile data provider i used to be able to 4G/LTE.

Hi Coderus. If we can buy your time, how much for updating and keeping updated ?

Thanks a lot, Coderus! :-)
It would be a major patch.
Good job!

You should never try old ofono with new releases.

Just a suggestion, would it be possible to add a warning on "4G Only" mode that voice calls are not possible? Currently Sailfish OS and/or hardwares lack VoLTE support, and LTE does not support traditional circuit-switched voice calls "per specification". As a result, switching back to 3G/2G on voice calls are required, which is disabled by 4G Only mode.

i am receiving calls in 4G mode with no problems, sorry

Did you know, coderus, that this patch (or the ofono version, actually) has a pretty serious bug?

coderus's picture

works for me.
you just dont use it if it is not working for you, because it is a free software :)

Older version compatible with Taalojärvi removed?

coderus_ofono's picture

Removed, because you should not be able to install old version to 2.0.2

objectifnul's picture

Okay, but currently the official release is still (Taalojärvi).

EA is latest official releases for me

objectifnul's picture

Too many disappointments with early access OS releases in the past (Jolla is my default work phone).

coderus's picture

No any issues in EA for me for ages :)

objectifnul's picture

Anyway, making any app deliberately unavailable for users of an official OS release is beyond my understanding. Sorry if this sounds like a rant.

coderus's picture

EA releases are 100% official

This patch is amazing and so usefull. I hope you'll update it.

I have an issue with installing this patch:

Ofono is installed according to warehouse 1.17+git22+master.20160415161238.3.g8376174- . . . Ofono was installed via devel-su -> pkcon refresh -> pkcon install ofono -> reboot

Sailfish version is

Error is:

Transaction /903_ecadaccb

Status: dep-resolution-failed

Extra details: sailfishos-more-network-modes-0.0.6-3.armv7hl requires ofono = 1.16+git14-10.14.1.jolla, but this requirement cannot be provided.

Ofono was also downloaded from warehouse to the local device ofono-1.16git14-10.14.1.armv7hl.rpm (seemingly what is missing) and attempting to install it via pkcon install-local <local file path> lead to a dependancy requirement for ofono-configs, which I have no idea where to get. pkcon install ofono-configs doesn't lead to any available packages.

What else can I try doing to resolve this issue?


coderus's picture

i just need to update patched ofono version

dalas_revo's picture

hi coderus,
i have the very same problem. will it be complicated to update?

coderus's picture

not complicated, but need somje amount of time. I did not updated anything to new releases yet.

I found the same bug, after setting 3G + 4G and restarted, are no longer 'able to change the network settings, as described by babba2, if you uninstall the patch does not change the situation, I can not' to set the network ... thanks.

coderus's picture

in warehouse disable coderus_ofono repository

then in terminal do:

pkcon refresh
pkcon install ofono

and reboot
