My update lost Amaze file manager, so I spent a while figuring out how to reactivate Google Play store, setting up a new login ( forgot my old one), getting amaze again, and trying to disableplay store. Bit peeved.
Now I need to play around & find out all the new ways to do things. It does look as if there are improvements.
EDIT: I am not saying we are supporting root ;), just that the archive is available.
As always, be careful if you have modified system (e.g. by using Xposed) - you can hit walls there and have to wipe userdata.
Hi there! Everything looks different now. Is it about the update to Android 6? I’m looking fir everything now. And also I miss my application for sms. I can not find it anymore. I don’t want to use hangouts and I can not find another one, so simple and supporting two sim cards as there was before the update? Did this really need to be deleted? Can’t see any approvement there. Can anybody recomand a new app to me please? I don’t need to send gifs or voice messages. I want to write normal SMS and I want to be able to chose, which sim I use for that…
Thanks a lot! Only the link for the sms app - I allready installed that one again, but it doesn’t ask me anymore, which sim I want to use :(( I have it in the main settings, there is “ask every time”. It’s just not asking… Do you have a tipp for that?
There is still a sms app on your phone after updating to Android 6.0, but it’s now called Android Messages (blue icon). The default app also supports Dual Sim.
Please refer to the the blog post for all the info and changes from 5.1 to 6.0.
for months I was quite happy with my Fairphone in silent mode, as is was - silent.
Now, after a reinstall and subsequent update to OS 17.07.6 the shutter, screenshot and video start/stop noise suddenly reappeared. Like at the beginning of FP2, when only specific apps could disable the shutter sound - video and screenshot no included. Switching to “all silent”, i.e. “Alarm Only” does not help, the noise appears always in high volume. I even use the “Silent Mode Lock”-App - no chance.
Is there some regression / does anyone else have this problem?
If not - what can I do other than root / reinstall again?
Interesting, tell us more about the new memory chip inside the new batch. Why was it changed? What else is changed in new FP2 Series? I know about the faulty SIM slots which were breaking a lot. They also change in newer versions, aren’t they?
