Aleksi Suomalainen created a blog dedicated to his Sailfish OS port on Raspberry Pi 2. The “SailPi” web-page will provide tutorials and updates for Sailfish OS running on the small single-board computer. The new Raspberry Pi 2, which features a quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU and 1GB RAM, can run the full range of ARM GNU/Linux distributions and is necessary to run the Sailfish OS port.
On SailPi you find a complete and easy to understand tutorial including download link to Suomalainen’s latest “SailPi” image. Other than the Raspberry Pi 2 you need of course a microSD card (minimum 8GB), a computer to prepare your microSD card as well as necessary cables. Have a look at the complete instructions at sailpi.wordpress.com/installation/
Following video shows the Sailfish OS home-screen on a 3.5″ PiScreen:
There are no (barely any!) limits to your creativity with a Raspberry Pi – one example is the PiPhone, a working cellphone by David Hunt.
Therefore a big thank you to Suomalainen and his work. It’s exciting to see his project progress.
Also, Mathias Lindström for the SailPi’s banner design and original idea on the blog!
