I installed the Update and tried to install Xposed, but my phone stops at the grey “Loading”-screen. When I press the power button ca. 5 sec, it says “Android starting” and then it stops at the “Loading”-screen again…
First it seemed to go smooth, but after all the app optimization and entering my PIN, it jumped back to the white screen saying “Fairphone”, and then starts again optimizing apps. Now I am stuck in a loop, as it tries to optimize apps again and again …
Update worked fine for me, but can someone explain the difference between the update you see when just starting the updater and what shows up when you choose “Advanced Mode” / “Android for Fairphone”. Both showed 16.07 and I tried both and both worked, but I probably just applied the same update twice
Alright, seems to run again.
I had openGapps pico installed, that seems to have caused the problem.
I downloaded the latest version and (re-)installed it via TWRP, and after the next app optimiztion the phone started again. Only the home screen, i.e. the Fairphone launcher, seems to be broken, so I need to configure it again.
Edit: Launcher problem solved thanks to Titanium Backup :-))
Interesting side note: I also tried to wipe Dalvik & cache in TWRP, which failed. I assume it is because I have the /data partition encrypted. Can someone confirm that the cache is on the /data partition?
I really really hope Fairphone will soon port TWRP 3+, it is really annoying that the current TWRP version cannot handle encrypted /data!! This steals a custom recovery most of its advantages!
TWRP 2 already handles encrypted data (I used it in my former Nexus 4), so it should be a misconfiguration. I cannot clear your doubt, though, because I won’t encrypt my FP2 until I consider the software stable enough.
About the Updater improvements, anyone can check if the storage folder is not being created now on the user data? (it shouldn’t be created, /storage already exists, and I had troubles in the past with some storage subfolder and MTP…)
Well, there has been a change in encryption with lollipop at least on some devices (Qualcomm?). If one checks XDA or twrp forums, you can see this problem. I successfully updated after quite some hassle, also probably because of too old opengapps. My devices is encrypted also, btw
I also got the error wiping cache, but at least on Android cache indeed seems to be on its own partition. Maybe some more investigation is necessary, but not this evening
And, after everything was OK again, I also flashed Xposed. Successfully
