Hotfix available for Storage Upgrader 1.8.5

Hi all,

We are happy to announce a fix is available for users who are unable to reinstall Google Apps after installation of the faulty Storage Upgrader 1.8.5 on the software update release day (19 May).

The fix is easy to install, just visit this link: through the standard browser on you device and you should be able to install the APK file from there. If the short url link above doesn’t work for whatever reason, here’s the full link:

After that you will see this screen:

Just press “FIX”, allow Superuser access when asked and restart your device after this.

After the restart you should be able to install Google Apps through the Fairphone Updater app as normal.

Good luck with the process, and we are sorry for the inconvenience this issue has caused some of you.

For further discussion, please continue in this topic.
