Thanks a lot for your kind help Paul. What I did to unroot was precisely that, however I’m willing to try it again but in the Updater’s Advanced Mode I just see one entry for 17.04.8, and nothing for 1.13.0
One question, if I follow the full update procedure whenever the binary file is available, I will lose my user data, or it is safe on this regard?
Did the update just now. Except draining the battery down to 0% it worked as smooth as can be. All apps I have tried so far are functioning, the home-screen has been migrated nicely, and all accounts I have tried still connect perfectly. Good job!
Thanks, I was referring to the procedure described in the “4. Flash the binary images from a computer” of the manual update page (you are right, they were updating it and now we all can access to the 17.04.8 files, this morning only 1.13.0 there).
In that section it describes how to install the full 17.04.8 package, via fastboot, instead of the delta from the 1.13.0. A bit unusure if that will flatten the phone to a factory installation…
So far looking good! However already noticed two things that I’m sorry are gone. The ‘peace of mind’ feature (as I mention elsewhere), and the option to put the phone on complete silence (including no vibration, ie - ‘do not disturb’) from the locked screen. Correct me if I’m wrong, but now to be able to put the phone on do not disturb, you have to unlock the phone, pull down the setting menu, and tap it from there. Not the best process when you need to silence your phone quickly…
OK, I finally managed to get it right… First I downloaded the 1.13.0 update file, copied to the phone and installed it by opening it with the Updater via Amaze. That effectively de-rooted the phone (I think the previous time, I just restored the boot loader but not the OS itself).
After reinstalling 1.13.0 I was able to install 17.04.8 seamlessly… Thanks a lot to the Fairphone team for the great work you are doing!
