DISCLAIMER: Flash this at your own risk.
I won't be held responsible for any damage done to the device,
you guys should know the drill by now.
This page is for tracking the status of the Sailfish OS port for the Samsung Galaxy S3 (A.K.A i9300) with detailed information
||Samsung Galaxy S3 International
(A.K.A. rusty88 in xda-developers, IRC)
The procedure to flash is very simple and can be found in the HADK Chapter 10, page 29. But here's a quick recap, although it is recommended reading that chapter for first timers:
Be mindful that the image is not production ready and some parts of the system are not working.
Refer to xda-developers thread for more information.
- Is necessary to flash the official ROM 4.2.2 (is really necessary to be the 4.2 version of android). HADK describes why.
- Flashing CM10 10.1.3 stable
- Flashing the sailfish os rootfs.
- reboot and hopefully you'll boot into sailfish os. :)
PS: If the image does not recognized you SIM card, you need to download the helper tarball and follow the instructions.
How to build it
Jolla released the Hardware Adaptation Kit that guides anyone willing to port
Sailfish OS to a new device or how to build an image for an already supported device.
Currently i9300 is not mainline with the mer repositories, I've trying to pushed
changes upstream. In the mean time you can use my repositories for building the image
or start from scratch.
