I’m again having the effect that the clock in the status bar does not update. Only after rotating the screen. If i pull down from the bar, the clock in the settings date is correct. This seems to only happen if the phone is running for somewhat longer. Mine’s running for more than 40 hours now

Edit: here’s a screenshot, showing the clock app and the status bar:

Do the other icons in the status bar (battery, network signal, WiFi) update/change while the clock is frozen?

Yes, they do…
It kicked in again and shows the current time. As it looks like this is only happening in the morning, maybe it’s related to my (automatically) putting the phone into airplane mode in the night, from midnight till seven workdays and nine on the weekend…

Edit: no, it happens also in the evening (right, now, for example)

We had this several times with the “unofficial” Lineage already; Reboot your Phone to get mobile data again. And before, send a dmesg to @chrmhoffmann! :wink:

Is it possible to define a preference of APs? Say I can connect to 3 APs, and there is one I prefer over another. Can I define that somewhere?

When this happens please capture logcat, dmesg and logcat -b radio. Then you can reboot :slight_smile:

Sounds like good news :wink:
–> “sounds” because I am not really sure what it means (i guess i do but still) and, more importantly, what the implications are.
It would be great if you could provide some information regarding these two points – maybe in the first post for visibility?

Specifically, people might want to understand:

  • how is the “1st official build” different from the “last unofficial build” – what makes it official?
  • who is maintaining + hosting the OS – is it now in the hands of the lineage developers? or is it still just mainly a single person?
  • is there some kind of “quality control” (not only regarding functionality but also security issues)?

I think these points are really important! – while i am sure that everybody did great work, I will not rely on an OS that is maintained by a single/very few devs. And this is for two main reasons

  • if something changes in the devs personal life (kid born, new job, illness, …) the development comes to a full stop :unamused:
  • (i am hopeful this is not an issue here ;), but still) for a tiny user base like in this case (FP2 Lineage OS Users = some 10s to few 100s tops?) the potential for undetectably pushing some malicious functions to the users phones is much higher than for something like, say, a linux distribution. or, for that matter, FP Open.

It would be great, if you could shed some light on these questions/concerns :slight_smile:

The hosting is now officially done by LineageOS instead of unofficial 3rd party (snevas).

Whole LineageOS website including wiki. www. and download. are hosted by Linode (NY, USA) and the links to the checksums and zips are hosted on mirrorbits. (OVH, QC, Canada).

The FP2 port developers can set when the build is going to be build which is every Tuesday.

I don’t know if there’s deterministic builds.

[quote]- is there some kind of “quality control” (not only regarding functionality but also security issues)?
[/quote]Its a weekly release on Tuesday.

Do the developers of the port use nightly builds to test out?

I don’t know how this compares to the official QA in FPOS.

There’s a useful app Lineage Downloader which allows you to switch between builds, see changelogs of your current and future build, and contains links with changes to Gerrit. The Pro version without ads costs ~2,5 EUR. But it doesn’t allow you to try a nightly build.

My 2 ct,

Amazing!
But I got one question:
In the how to was this warning:
Warning: Your device must be on bootloader version , otherwise the instructions found in this page will not work
But the bootloader version is missing…
Which version is needed?

I’m not a 100% sure what that means either - I’m sure someone else will explain - but if you come from official FP OS or FP Open OS and never changed anything in the system you can definitely ignore that warning.

I think that the powerdrain might be fixed now.

Update to 14.1-20171031-NIGHTLY-FP2 went smooth.

No further reboots until now, but the OTA Update did’nt work:
"Das Herunterladen ist fehlgeschlagen. Bitte überprüfen Sie die Internetverbindung. I did the Update via TWRP.

I had that too. After some time, the update worked via OTA.

For me too via OTA without any problems.

  • modem-17.09.3.zip (unchanged, not installed again)

Update installed via TWRP:

  • lineage-14.1-20171031-nightly-FP2-signed.zip
  • open_gapps-arm-7.1-pico-20171031.zip

The following things work for me so far:

  • call / be called
  • send SMS / receive SMS
  • internet via WiFi
  • internet via mobile network
  • location
  • compass
  • screenshot
  • main camera (new module)
  • selfie camera (new module)
  • USB connection to PC / MTP
  • alarm (incl. swiping it off)
  • MyPhoneExplorer
  • root
