Since a few weeks, I get the notification that there is a new Fairphone update waiting to be installed on my phone. I have already installed the new update over 20 times - but I still get the notification. Every time, I fully install the new update, install Google Apps, and set everything up with my Google account. But the notification keeps coming.
How do I know whether the installation has been successful or not? And if not, what can I do to actually make it successful?
Thanks in advance for your help!
I have the same problem so would love to hear the solution!
If you open the updater app and it doesn’t tell you that your current OS version is 1.8.5 then the update wasn’t successful.
In that case go to settings > developer options and tick “stay awake”. Plug-in your phone and try updating again. That should do it.
If in fact you did already update successfully then you shouldn’t get the message that a new update is available but the updater will just check if there is. The frequency and timing of these checks is not as intended which is why there is a bug report about it. Check that topic for a workaround.
I went to settings > developer options > and then ticked the box “stay awake” (since “keep screen on” is not to be found there…). I plugged my phone in and tried again. At the moment, it is downloading Google Apps - and already I get the notification in the top of my screen that a new Fairphone update is available. Meaning it again didn’t work. My phone is still running now on Fairphone Cherry 1.6.
Do you have other options? Thank you!
I did the same and for me it seems to be working as i now do get another update but this is the kola nut 1.8.5. version. best Eveline
Sorry, yes it’s called stay awake. Usually that does the trick but if not maybe you need to install manually.
Perfect. Thank you! I’m gonna try it right now!
Great. You’re welcome
