There has been severe defect in Emoji Keyboard RPM packages older than v0.4.1-3. If you install older package on SailfishOS 1.1.4 or newer it may change system directory permissions so that fonts disappear from applications, no new application can be started, logging in with ssh fails and if you restart your phone it does not boot up any more.


You have to start your phone in recovery mode. Read instructions from Jolla: How do I use the Recovery Mode?.

From recovery menu select 4) Shell and type to command prompt

mkdir /myroot
mount /dev/mmcblk0p28 /myroot
chmod +x /myroot/usr{,/share{,/fonts{,/custom}}}
chmod +x /myroot/usr/share/maliit{,/plugins{,/com/jolla{,/layouts,/custom_emoji}}}
umount /myroot

Now you can restart your phone from recovery menu and it should boot up correctly.
