Also using LOS16, and I do have connectivity problems as well.
After the first (clean) install I had to manually add the APN because LOS
wouldn’t implement the ones retrieved automatically.
If I don’t use the Internet connection for some time I get randomly kicked out of the Wifi.
Since the last update (17th August) I encounter random app freezes (Spotify, Facebook et al) did anyone do so as well? And if so, can provide a solution?
It depends on the smartphones cpu, which systems can be used. It is the same at my Galaxy S5 with Snapdragon 801: Glonas and Beidou satelites are seen but not used. Galileo satelites are even not recognised.
Looks like there’s a problem with today’s nightly update (lineage-16.0-20190824-nightly-FP2-signed.zip) : when rebooting after update, my phone was stuck on the boot animation for about 3 min and then automatically rebooted into recovery.
Did it 3 times before I eventually downgraded by flashing yesterday’s update (20190823) through TWRP. No problem, my phone started nicely after that, no data lost.
Anybody else experiencing this?
Same issue. Luckily - or so It hought - I had a previous TWRP backup from a nightly in July.
Did a TWRP restore, it says it succeeded - but doesn’t boot. Did a restore to an older TWRP backup from April - doesn’t boot. Keeps stuck on Fairphone boot screen, no LOS 16 boot animation.
I wonder why I bother to make TWRP backups, if they simply don’t work.
Now I have to try and connect to my laptop and learn again how to sideload, pfff…
Nu luck restoring my backup. Had to reinstall 20190823-nightly.
Discovered a tricky LOS 16 bug:
When you want to restore the google apps and settings , you have to confirm with the pattern unlock of the previous installation. BUT, google only shows a 3x3 grid pattern lock.
If you had a 4x4, 5x5 or 6x6 grid pattern lock, you can’t unlock the backup with a 3x3 grid!
LOS makes different grids possible, but at least should show a big warning that this breaks the backup restore!
