And the FP2 is getting the update before basically all the other Android phones, and the Iphone.
Yeah, awesome job! Thanks a lot, Team Fairphone!
Update went flawlessly. One thing I noticed, though, is that the info of the security patch level does not fit.
Might this be due to the fact, that this update is based on the old Android patch level as the next one still lies in the future?
Everything o.k. here too. Many thanks to the team!
No, AS @BertG mentions, the security patch level is correct. To get a higher security level, all security fixes in for 1.11./5.11. need to be implemented. This is „only“ patch level 5.10. plus the Krack fixes.
Ah, okay! Thank you all for the info.
That’s exactly why I bought a Fairphone, thanks folks!
I installed the update yesterday manually. As always, it works like a charm.
Ha, I misread the title. Of course I installed FP O OS on my phone.
Update successful. Many thanks to Fairphone for being on the ball. The other phone companies could learn a lesson or two.
It was already available yesterday and even offered by the updater app.
