Some users here have noted strange behavior with MultiSIM (PIN requested randomly). Can someone confirm that this is not working? I don’t have two SIMs at hand this week.
Backlight does not power on again in Offmode charger (but it keeps charging). The battery is shown for a few seconds, and then you cannot bring the battery anim back on. Seems to miss a kernel fix for this.
The other reported issues:
Reboot into recovery: I cannot reproduce this. Can someone confirm that this is broken?
New cam module issues - They are not new in O and I think they also exist under Fairphone OS:
Camera flash not in sync with picture taking using Snap app (built-in camera app): I think this was already on cm-14.1.
Shutdown make it reboot: This is also with Fairphone OS apparently and not new in O.
I’m a bit concerned about the encryption situation. For now that’s a dealbreaker for me.
The LineageOS 15.1 test build can encrypt. That’s fine.
Current TWRP cannot decrypt this then. That could well be. But why?
What changed from LineageOS 14.1 (Android 7.1) to 15.1 (8.1) at this front?
What concerns me here is that the internet reports for months now that the respective TWRP on several devices can’t decrypt Android 8.1 encryption … and somehow there was no noticeable movement apart from a few fixes in non-official TWRP builds for certain devices. And now here we are on the official LineageOS/ official TWRP device Fairphone 2 with the same problem.
I somehow imagine a scenario now where the LineageOS side would think “Well, fix TWRP then!”, while the TWRP side would think “Well, fix LineageOS 15.1 then!”.
I do my system backup with TWRP. I briefly looked into other ways (dd-ing the encrypted partition block or using adb backup), and I’m not enthusiastic about moving away from the very convenient TWRP backup.
So, any definite idea who has homework to do? LineageOS 15.1 or TWRP?
Press and hold on a home screen until the screens zoomout and you get the various options to add widgets etc. On the tiles above you can switch between your screens and you should notice a little house. Tap this on the screen you want to be your main screen and you’ll see the circle goes white… and that’s it
With the version of 28th I still have one problem with the LED. I’m currently charging while the phone is on, but the LED was not lit. Then a notification came in, the LED went on, just to go off after a short while. Now, several minutes later the LED is on again. And just as I type it went off.
Edit: and I can confirm that adb reboot recovery and adb reboot bootloader both do a normal system boot (I have TWRP 3.2.1).
Interestingly there seems to be similar trouble over at Fairphone’s Android 7 beta when LinageOS based on Android 7 never had this … maybe it’s the same problem and Fairphone will do the necessary homework at least for their TWRP build … I’ll take anything that works .
