Hi, a while back some FP2s had android 9 ‘Pie’ installed, according to this article:
One thing that Android users hate about the operating system is the track record when it comes to getting the newer version update. But, in a surprising move, a small company named Fairphone is trying to change it. The company has started rolling out...
but this has never appeared in my aboutPhone > Updater in Settings;
my phone’s still on 7.1.2 !!
How do I upgrade to android v9, or to 8 if v9 isn’t available now?
This upgrade has still to be officially released by Fairphone. Right now it is still in beta status.
Fairphone OS 19.11.2 (Android 7.1.2) is still the most recent official release.
Hi Fairphone 2 owners!
We would like to inform you about our Fairphone 2 beta program for software updates.
The Fairphone 2 beta program allows users to try out pre-release versions of Fairphone OS. Help the Fairphone team make Fairphone OS better by letting us know of any quality and usability issues you encounter.
This beta program is seen as a pilot, and a great way to let our community be involved in software development. We might expand the beta program to include future software develop…
…and for how long do you think? It still works fine for me, as I don’t need any special apps - the only one that would refuse Android 7 is the e-banking app of UBS, but I don’t use it on my main FP2 with Open OS 19.11.2 - all other apps still work fine.
Is there any other important security issue with Android 7 ?
Thanks for a hint.
I really don’t know, sorry.
Fine, then there is none that is known so far
I don’t think so, look at the security bulletins:
there are just no fixes for Android 7 since November 2019 anymore.
Well, are there any known serious security problems with all the users who still use an ordinary FP2? And there’s a lot of them. I haven’t heard of any and personnally experienced none.
Just look at all the serious issues, that are fixed in newer versions. These are potentially open in Android 7 and older.
