As a result of this, the launcher/home screen might lose previous data from 19.1. So, please try to have a backup of any important links or bookmarks if you have any.
The biometrics strength has been restored temporarily. A decision shall be taken later. So, it now works for 3rd party apps as well.
Storage permission for ThemePicker was removed from compatibility perspective. As a result, it might crash right after the update to LineageOS 20. Please clear data of Wallpaper and Styles app in Settings to restore the bahavior.
I think I have covered most of the points. I shall update if I have missed any. Please do share if you encountered anything.
So happy as this allows an easy migration from my current deteriorating phone (non-FP) with LOS20. Really looks good and one would expect Fairphone to release an update of their vendor OS with new kernel and blobs.
Yes, I’,running LOS 20 with mindthegapps. Please be advised that for the upgrade you also have to flash the according mindthegapps package, that is MindTheGapps-13.0.0-arm64-20221025_100653.zip for Android 13… Otherwise, you’ll get yourself into trouble.
So, follow the instructions on lineageos.org, and you’ll be fine.
About the microG-release, you are probably right with your suspicion. I use iode 4.1 (LOS 20 + microg + tracking-blocker), it is a beta-version that is already available, maybe that’s an option for you.
MinMicroG offers a magisk module with a modded playstore that is working fine for me (you don’t need MinMicroG for that). I am doing it like this for years at this point, I never heard that google would take action against it, after all they earn money with this because it enables in-app-purchase on the playstore for MicroG-users.
The upgrade went smooth. Almost everything works just like before.
The only thing not working: Signal Backups fail. It goes to 99,9% and then says backup failed. Using external storage for signal backups.
Clearing the cache in the App settings did not help.
I think the only way is to install iode 3, install the updater app v3 from beta · master · iode / ota · GitLab and upgrade to 4 from there. Or what I did is, after installing the updater-app, I copied the link from the updater to download iode 4 ROM for a fresh install. Oooor if you can wait, i can later look on my PC if the URL is still in my browser history or I could send you the whole ROM which is still on my PC.
I don’t know why iode team is handling things this way sometimes.
I just found out that this is because it says the external SD card is full, although it is not. OSM keeps crashing too, may be because the downloaded maps are on this SD Card as well.
Ejecting it and reinserting it did not help.
I will investigate more and keep you all updated.
Using OpenMTP and deleting few maps of OSM from the Sd card helped create some space. However, strange: There were 40 GB of free space before the ugrade to Lineage OS 20. After the upgrade: 0.
Anyhow, I can now back up Sgnal to the Sd Card and OSM does not crash anymore.
