Software Update: 3.A.0132.20211027

Hello, since i updated my fairphone 3 i get issues with this game :

the ui is disapearing randomly during the game and never comes back (wich make the game unplayable)

is there anyway to come back to an older version or fix the issue ?


FP3+ user here with Magisk (root), was able to successfully install this update by restoring stock boot image in magisk + installing ota update (without rebooting) + reinstall magisk with OTA option and then reboot. I did need my laptop to set the boot slot to B but after that all was grand :+1:.

For those of you that run a module to force basic attestation pass… I don’t run one so don’t know if that would be affected by the update.

Thanks for taking the time to push out the update FP team :grin:!


Hi, Vodafone from Italy update received and installed! I’d like to notify that the update’s message was referring only about security update (5th of November), no mention of these bugs fixs.


Vodafone Germany and yes the update was successful


Then check, whether you made some changes to your settings, as it was not working with the older software. 2G/3G/4G for example.

I tested my phone now with calls from Vodafone and O2 both in my contact list and both worked.

The Bluetooth icon bug is still there.

Which Bluetooth icon bug?
Anyway, it’s not mentioned in the ‘List of changes’. So it would be more helpful to talk about the addressed bugs, and not what wasn’t addressed.

P.S.: You mean that you have to tap the BT icon twice to enable it? I have that too, but as I said, it wasn’t mentioned in the list of changes.

You have to hit the Bluetooth icon 2 times. You tap once it lights up then switch back to off. Bluetooth does not come on. You do it a second time then it works as expected. It was mentioned in the forum a while ago because it persists over 2 or 3 updates and does to this day

No. But her phone to call my phone. :wink:

Please, could 2-3 people with Vodafone DE or O2 DE test whether WiFi hotspot works i.e. the issue reported for v3.A.0130 is not present in v3.A.0132.2021027? I can live well with missing caller ID and backlight issue is not too much interfering, but missing WiFi hotspot would be a major issue for me - so I’d prefer to stick to older v3.A.0129.20210805…

I confirm VodafoneDE on 4G : unknown caller bug is fixed


Yep, same here, can confirm too.

Can confirm this too (Bluetooth icon bug)…

Nope. Update’s description was “New security update”. Luckly I used to surf on this forum, other users (not in this forum) could argue that Fairphone has not fixed these bugs.

Well, I guess it’s better not to talk about something, but doing it right, than the other way :wink:.


Hi, the update is available for me. My provider is Vodafone Germany.
But now the very interesting thing:
I haven´t installed the update, but since today, i can see the caller ID.
Today in the evening i received a phonecall and i was really surprised that i could see who is
calling. So i took a look in the Forum…and i saw : the update is here…but i really haven’t installed it.
This is really spooky, what do you think
