This time, I'm running the Sailfish SDK simulator image on the Iconia tab. I reused the HW adaptation that I created for the Mer one, with some new additions, A kernel that supports Radeon, and the free Mesa driver, compiled for Radeon as well.

I got a lot of stuff for free, like touchscreen driver, wifi driver, accelerometer, and could finally touch Sailfish OS on real HW. And it is really really nice.
