Software Update: 3.A.0132.20211027

Hi everyone :sunflower:

And here it is! Our latest software update for Fairphone 3 and Fairphone 3+ users is now available.

Software Version: 3.A.0132.20211027

Security Patch Level: 5th of November, 2021

List of changes:

  • Fixed an issue that was causing, under certain conditions, the incoming caller ID to appear as “unknown”.
  • Fixed an issue that was causing, under certain conditions, the brightness level to go to zero when set to Automatic.
  • The network compatibility for several carriers has been enhanced.

Please note:

Together with our partners, we test the software before its release, and in some instances where a software update might result in some problems for users on a specific network or in a specific country, we prefer to delay the software release for that specific customer base and fix all the potential issues before making the software available to everyone.

That means that depending on your network provider, some Fairphone 3 and 3+ users may receive this update later. Once the update is available you’ll receive a push notification to automatically update.

I got it on Vodafone Germany too, just installing. When ready, I will check the caller ID issue.
It’s restarting.
And it works, could see, that I was calling myself :smile:.


Unfortunatly the same in actual FP4 release. And not fixed in this FP4 Version.



Available in Germany… i have high hopes… dont dissapoint me again fp

I just installed the new update and still have the issue that I can’t see who called me. :frowning:

Oh! Thanks for the information, then I will not yet do the update (I am still on the software version with working caller IDs, as I skipped the previous one).

Do you use Vodafone Germany?

With Vodafone Germany it works now:


Thank you, I was not aware that you updated your post :wink:

This update is only for FP3 not the FP4 and Android 10

I thought the FP4 uses Android 11 so has nothing to do with this topic ???


Hello, since i updated my fairphone 3 i get issues with this game : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=air.com.midjiwan.polytopia

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
