System update on hold - hotfix available

A bug affecting new feature, alphanumeric lock code, has been discovered by two users after the Sailfish OS 1.1.1.26 Vaarainjärvi system update was released yesterday. System update was put on hold right after this discovery, but not for long.

If you've already installed the update, and changed your phone lock code to alphanumeric, you're about to be stuck with it - If you instead want to use a numeric lock code, it's recommended to switch back to numeric code before installing the hotfix (Sailfish OS 1.1.1.27 Vaarainjärvi) released today.

User cases: If you are currenty...

  • running on 1.0.3.x Naamankajärvi or older version: You'll be able to upgrade to 1.1.1.27 starting on Monday, December 22nd. Before updating, check this post 
  • running on 1.0.8.x Tahkalampi or older (until 1.0.4.x) - just wait for the update numbered 1.1.1.27 released on Monday, December 22nd, and prepare with 2Gb of free space
  • running on 1.1.0.x Uitukka (opt-in) - You should have received a notification of this hotfix already. If not, just some patience. Feel free to install.
  • running on 1.1.1.26 Vaarainjärvi, not touched to the new alphanumeric lock code - You should have received a notification of the hotfix 1.1.1.27. Just install it before using any alphanumeric code
  • running on 1.1.1.26 Vaarainjärvi AND switched to alphanumeric lock code - Before installing the hotfix 1.1.1.27, recommended to switch back to numeric code, or you might be stuck with using the alphanumeric one until the next release. Feel free to install.
  • running on 1.1.1.27 Vaarainjärvi - You have the latest version installed, without an option to switch between numeric and alphanumeric lock code. All the other improvements are worth it - at least in my opinion, they really are. Great performance on Jolla.
Note: The First One group should have received the notification of the update already by now, no matter what Sailfish OS version they are currently running
