Welcome to the recovery tool!

The available options are:

4) Shell 
5) Try btrfs recovery if your device is in bootloop 
6) Exit

From here you are able to do what you want.

Reboot loop

If your Jolla is in reboot loop, Its only displaying Jolla logo, black screen, re-logo Jolla etc., You can try to repair the btrfs file. Select 5 and restart your phone.

Hack failed

If you attempted hacks on your Jolla and your Jolla no longer restarts? Know that you can easily repair your hack. Go to the shell by selecting 4 .

Then, mount the file system

mkdir / mnt / rootfs 
mkdir / mnt / sd 
mount / dev/mmcblk0p28 / mnt / rootfs 
mount / dev/mmcblk1p1 / mnt / sd

Then get in chroot directly to your Jolla

chroot / mnt / rootfs

And here, you can do the operations you want, such as restoring backups.

    And the “mount the file system’ instructions have way too many spaces, there should only be one after the first word on each line.

    Awesome, I was looking for information on how to mount the root file-system through recovery mode, and your instructions are spot on. Thanks!
