Hello fairphone users,
I recently buy a fairphone and I want to manage my permissions. So I must be root.
In this post https://www.fairphone.com/2016/04/28/releasing-the-fairphone-2-open-operating-system/ I see that’s is easy with fairphone OS. See:
Therefore, root access is not supported in the default software your Fairphone 2 ships with. (We are aware this decision is arguable, but we believe it is the best for the majority of users). If you would like to have root access, we advise you to move to the Fairphone Open Source OS. Once you install this build, you can easily enable root access under the developer settings.
So I install fairphone OS from here: http://code.fairphone.com/projects/fp-osos/user/fairphone-open-source-os-installation-instructions.html
I’m now on fairphone OS 16.07 I think. I’m not really sure… because in parameters -> about phone, the version of android is 5.1. But yeah, version of build is …FP2…16.2
And now ? How can I enable root access ? I try with the app SuperSU but it say that I’m not root…
There is some tutorial to do that (by flashing, build, etc) but the releasing-the-fairphone-2-open-operating-system post seems to say that’s far more easy…
Thanks to help me
