I just created an account to say a big: THANK YOU! to the developers keeping our phones patched with the latest security updates. This is much more important than getting the latest Android version, from a security perspective, and you guys are performing admirably.

While it isn’t perfect, FP Open has been a great experience for me and I love being free of Google Services.

Finishing this message as my FP2 finishes booting after yet another successful (and effortless!) update. Thanks again to the team that makes this possible :slight_smile:


Is the battery-drain-problem after update to 16.08/16.09 solved now? I see modem Firmware Images inside and hope, that is the case… :slight_smile:


Thank you for the update, went smoothly!
I think that the clock issue is almost resolved. Thumbs up!

Update went smoothly, so thanks on that side. However I would appreciate an update that does not “just” fixes some CVEs, but some real bugs like the extremely annoying and still present clock-reset bug.


Sounds great, in the RC2 it was not fixed.

Edit: Ok, just saw that also in the final release it is not fixed yet.

Cool … Now I have random crashes/reboots after I upgraded to 16.10.0. No other change. Just the upgrade done a couple of hours ago.

Works perfectly, thank you!

Hassle-free update with encrypted, opengapps and Xposed

unfortunately, after the update the Fairphone is stuck in a reboot/optimizing apps loop…

how do I get out of this? Any way to downgrade?

Do you use any flash-zips (I mean apps flashed via TWRP)?

After update the updater tells me:

aktuelles Betriebssystem Fairphone Open 16.10.0

Update ist verfügbar Fairphone Open 16.09.0


yes, opengapps and Xposed…

Did you follow the community update guide? (Especially step 3):

See also this topic, which is essentially the same question.

I am getting the same battery-draining wakelock as with 16.09 when an app like WaveUp is using the proximity sensor.

Thanks a billion!
this worked :slight_smile:

I have never experienced any problems with the proxomity sensor before, now with 16.10 it already happened twice that the screen did not respond as it should: one time it turned off the display when just laying on the table (call on the speaker), and once the display did non come back after a call.

I tried to use the proximity app again and will closely observe how this develops. In any case, with this version it is the first time I encounter problems with the proximity sensor.

Yes, this seems to not yet being fixed. No deep sleep if there’s an app using the proximity sensor.
But i prefer timely security fixes to this usability patch…

And definitely, chapeau, this one really is in time!


I did so.
At the ‘advanced modus’ it looks also wrong, but different:
