Dear Community, We’re launching updates to the Fairphone 2 every month. But before we bring new updates to thousands of Fairphone 2 owners, we hope to get feedback from our community. We’re currently beta testing with a dedicated group of Fairphone community members, and their insights are very important for helping us make better, more reliable software. We would like to continue and expand this successful cooperation between our developers and the community. This is an open call to anyone who wants to test and try beta software for the Fairphone 2. What is the plan?
Every few weeks we release a beta-update through Fairphone Updater app. Beta testers can download and install it on their Fairphone 2. In the days after every release, we hope to receive as much as feedback as possible to can determine whether we can release this new update to everyone or if we need to wait and continue development.
Who is it for?
Anyone can apply, but we are specifically looking for people who:
- Own a Fairphone 2
- Can explain fastboot, ADB and how to restore a Fairphone to their 8-year-old nephew
- Are aware that this update might erase data on their Fairphone and are ok with that
- Want to support Fairphone in their journey to fairer electronics Want to join?
Send a mail to our developers at firstname.lastname@example.org with your forum username and explain why you want to join the beta testers group. Once you are approved, you’ll be added to the beta group and will be able to write in that category on the forum.
Update: This call for additional beta tests has ended. Instructions for applying to the beta program can still be found in the original forum post.
