Sailfish OS alpha build arrives for OnePlus One owners

We have been following the story of Sailfish OS coming to Android hardware for some time now. Back in March of last year an “Early Adopter Release” was made available for the Nexus 4 and now, almost exactly one year later, we have a similar build arriving for the OnePlus One.

Warnings abound for those that are interested in trying this out, as the current build does not support Wi-Fi, camera, Android Apps or OTA updates. So yes, this is for the folks living on the bleeding edge only, but if you are using the OnePlus One there is a reasonable chance, that is a fitting description.

Here’s a video demoing what you can expect should you decide to take the plunge.

If you are a OnePlus One owner and feel compelled to give this a shot, just follow the link below to The Jolla Blog to get the installation instructions and relevant download links.

As we have said in the past, we like many of the ideas in Sailfish OS, but still haven’t seen anything so compelling that we could imagine leaving Android for it. Have any of you tried Sailfish OS yet or would you consider doing it if a stable build was available for your phone?
