This is still in beta!

You may (or may not) still encounter issues. (please report them if you do)

A patchmanager alternative for Sailfish OS which doesn't modify any files on disk.
Please read this thread before installing.

If you installed this manually before (without this package) simply remove /etc/ld.so.preload and install this package.

After installing you may have to reboot before patches take effect.

Many thanks to Fellfrosch for the icon!

What do you mean 'start screen'?, do you mean lockscreen?

Please, make a GUI for Prepatch.

I'm not quite sure what the gui would be supposed to do.

Toggeling patches is already safe and easy by simply installing/uninstalling the patch-packages using storeman.

If you have ideas as to what a gui would be useful for please voice them :)

Can you please make sure that you have the latest prepatch-version installed? (0.2) And if not, reboot after updating.

This was a known issue on 0.1 but for one person in the tmo-thread 0.2 solved it.
