  • Open Settings app
  • Go to System > Sailfish OS updates
  • Pull down the pulley menu and select ‘Check for update’
  • Once an OS update notification is received, tap on it and follow the instructions.



  • Working Jolla account configured on your device
  • Charger connected
  • Device connected to WLAN or mobile data network

If you are unable to successfully configure the account, please visit account.jolla.com and try to reset your password.

Do not reboot the device while the OS update installation is in progress. The process takes up to 10 minutes. During the update, the device screen might blank out. You can awaken the display by a short press on the power key to monitor the progress. When the upgrade has completed successfully, you will see the LED light up red before the device restarts.

In rare circumstances, you may have to try a second time to get through the update successfully.
