Running Debian sid on Sailfish OS

This assumes you have a Debian/Ubuntu host computer on which to run debootstrap. Theoretically you can run this on the device, but it's not as easy as on Harmattan (where you can just install the debootstrap package. On the host, run the first init and create a tarball:
    sudo debootstrap --arch armhf --foreign sid sid
    sudo tar czvf sid.tgz -C sid .
    du -sh sid.tgz 
    # 98M     sid.tgz
    scp sid.tgz nemo@
To unpack the chroot tarball:
    ssh nemo@
    # password

    mkdir sid
    cd sid
    tar xvf ../sid.tgz
    chroot /home/nemo/sid/ /debootstrap/debootstrap --second-stage
    chroot /home/nemo/sid/ apt-get clean
    echo "deb sid main" \
To enter the chroot:
    ssh nemo@
    # password

    mount --bind /proc /home/nemo/sid/proc
    mount --bind /sys /home/nemo/sid/sys
    mount --bind /dev /home/nemo/sid/dev
    mount --bind /dev/pts /home/nemo/sid/dev/pts
    cp /etc/resolv.conf /home/nemo/sid/etc/
    chroot /home/nemo/sid/
    apt-get update
