LineageOS 14.1 with OTA updates for FP2

Can someone explain me why the official nightly is so amazing? Running lineage now for 3 month and it works really great. So what are the advantages?

4 posts were split to a new topic: Official LineageOS is here!

I had this myself with my first FP2 and the 2 other people I personally know (running FPOOS) have the same thing with their (brand-new) FP2s. Additionally the reboot problem seems to be a common thing seeing this forum.
With my first FP2, every OS (Ubuntu, Lineage, Sailfish, FPOOS, FP OS) had the same reboot issue. Rebooting randomly, when it was in use but also when it is lying still on the table. Fitting the battery as instructed elsewhere on the forum didn’t fix it for me.
Fairphone confirmed that mine had a hardware malfunction causing these reboots, and I got a replacement. Ubuntu, FPOOS, and now LineageOS haven’t rebooted even once with the replacement phone.

If you have tried more than one OS and additionally it also reboots when lying still (to confirm it’s not the battery being loose), my bet is that your phone has the same hardware issue as I had and you need a replacement to fix it.

It’s a bit offtopic here, but I want to mention this to prevent you needlessly spending hours of debugging your LineageOS install, while it may have nothing to do with it :wink:

I see the advantage mainly for new users, who will be able to download LineageOS from their official webpage. I think they also have their own app that simplifies switching to official builds of LOS.

Ps: I’m closing this topic. Let’s continue here:

There will be no more updates on this OTA-server. LineageOS will take over the building / updating.
To receive new updates you’ll need to switch to the official release!
It was always the goal to get it official.

Ok, thanks! That’s the first serious reaction I got on my question.

Since I’ve also accidentally have broken one of the sim readers (the card got stuck behind the copper pins) I’ve moved to a different phone brand. So this is solved (sadly, after almost 4 years of owning a FP1/2) and I’m keeping my FP2 as testing device for app I’m developing.

For the people watching this topic, please switchover to the official release:

This OTA release will not update anymore!
