Glacier UI homescreen on Jolla

PLEASE NOTE!
Tampering with custom repositories on Jolla might leave you with a bricked device, please take care to follow instructions and do this only if you really know what you are doing! This requires developer mode to be enabled on your device.
THERE WILL BE BUGS! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
PLEASE NOTE!

First, download a couple of RPM packages, package1 and package2 (for glacier gallery download this package). Then in your device, preferably do this over ssh, do this:

devel-su
ssu ar http://repo.merproject.org/obs/nemo:/devel:/mw/latest_armv7hl/ nemo-devel-mw
ssu er nemo-devel-mw
ssu ur
pkcon refresh
cd /home/nemo/Downloads
pkcon install-local qt5-qtquickcontrols-nemo-5.1.0-nemo1.armv7hl.rpm
ssu dr nemo-devel-mw
ssu ur
pkcon refresh
pkcon install-local lipstick-glacier-home-qt5-0.0.0-1.armv7hl.rpm
# Then do this:
systemctl-user restart lipstick.service 
# After you have done testing it
pkcon remove lipstick-glacier-home-qt5
pkcon install lipstick-jolla-home-qt5
systemctl-user restart lipstick.service

Thats it then, you have successfully tested the Glacier homescreen experience on your Jolla device, good luck testing it 🙂
