I don’t think so. Lineage relies on the AOSP, but Fairphone gets the patches directly from Google. They were able to release the update (as a beta) with the November security patches more than a week ago.
Flashed this version today. Worked fine this time even the method is quite time consuming. But today I wrote down some notes what I did, which fit to my settings and my level of knowledge. I hope this will help me to speed up the next update.
For those who are interested …
Xposed (XPrivacy is the only module I use)
currently not encrypted as I would like to use Snooperstopper again and I’m afraid that I will run into this issue again.
My update notes:
Backup backup backup … oandbackup (app+data) of all apps + TWRP Backup before doing anything. Just to prevent data loss if something goes wrong while the update
unzip and remove that the recovery.img flash part, that it will not be flashed to an eventually older/outdated TWRP recovery version: ✏[HOWTO] Upgrade FPOOS without overwriting TWRP (don’t forget to delete the recovery.img from images folder, remove it from SHA256SUMS and MD5SUMS files as well and replace the checksums of the flash-for-unix.sh [make it executable in advance] with the new generated checksums)
Flash procedure itself:
-Prepare like described above
-Go offline (disable WLAN and mobile data) and disable xposed framework and afwall+ (optional but maybe safer) → reboot
-Boot into fastboot e.g. via „adb reboot bootloader“
turn it off and use the hardware buttons → press „power Button + Volume Down“ (test connection via „fastboot devices“)
-Flash the update via „flash-for-unix.sh“ (it should not flash a maybe outdated TWRP revocery.img after the preparation under point 3 - this is more important when the device is encrypted, but maybe Fairphone added a newer TWRP in the meanwhile, not sure)
-Boot into TWRP recovery → press „power Button + Volume Up“ for some seconds
-Flash latest version of all modifications you use (here xposed framework + fdroid privileged extension)
-Reboot to system.
Notes which might be interesting if parts of the procedure are not clear anymore:
Worked nicely here as well. Used OTA update and after the installation got into TWRP again and installed fdroid and xposed and every thing went fine.
Only one thing, as noted before: Security Level is still on October 5th. Can someone from Fairphone confirm that you simply forget to update the string, but the patches are all in?
