T42<Himself Is Meself> Why does sailfish want your Imei?15:43
T42<Himself Is Meself> If this is a stupid question, please be gentle.15:43
T42<Mister_Magister> does it?15:46
T42<Mister_Magister> my sfos device doesn't have imei and sfos doesn't ask for it15:46
T42<Mister_Magister> what exactly do you mean Himself Is Meself15:50
T42<Himself Is Meself> When i go onto sailfish website to download it, its one of the fields i have to input about my device.15:52
T42<Himself Is Meself> I'm gonna check it again.15:52
T42<Mister_Magister> why are you asking about official port on sailfishos porters15:55
T42<Mister_Magister> but to answer your question its most likely because either of jolla store or its tied to your device15:57
malI think the imei is asked because the image you the official images are tied to one device so you need to tell the store the device id and in sfos imei is used as id for the device15:57
malso when device later checks for new releases the store can use that imei to check that the device has valid license15:58
malthat is the one thing it's used for16:00
mal*only thing16:00
KetoUmm nope, "sailfish download website" does not ask for the IMEI. For unlocking the bootloader on Sony device the Sony website does ask the the IMEI, I assume the unloc code is somehow tied to that16:07
malah, it's been so long when I used store16:16
Mister_Magisteri've never used store xd16:23
Ketowell, it is true that Sailfish uses IMEI to identify the device to the store, but user does not need to enter it anywhere16:24
Mister_Magisterthat's what i assumed16:25
Mister_Magisterhence more specific would be more useful16:26
T42<Himself Is Meself> Because i prefer your opinion on things (re @Mister_Magister: why are you asking a...)16:40
T42<Himself Is Meself> Your as in you guys.16:40

T42<Himself Is Meself> 'Yours' as in you guys.16:41
T42<Himself Is Meself> Thanks (edited)16:41
