Fixed an issue that was causing, when upgrading from Android 9 directly to Android 11, some Bluetooth remote controls not working properly anymore.
Fixed an issue that was causing the phone not to be able to communicate correctly with certain glucose monitoring devices via NFC.
The “Sound Recorder” app, which was erroneously removed from the previous software, has been restored.
The automatic ambient brightness behavior has now been properly integrated with Google’s Device Health service app.
The network compatibility for various carriers has been enhanced.
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 3/3+ users may receive this update later. Once the update is available, you’ll receive a push notification to update automatically.
There is another topic asking for opinions that I’ve asked to be moved here.
In response and otherwise I have found that reducing the screen brightness manually to it’s lowest level left it so dark I couldn’t see any screen controls, I had to power off and on the first time, the next time I went into a really dark place and could just about see enough to pull down the menu and manually bring up the brightness.
Funny, I hadn’t had an update since the Android 11 upgrade in April and this one popped up this morning!
My partner still hasn’t had the notification for the A11 upgrade (we both have FP3s)!
We’re both with the same provider, Telecoop, a MVNO which uses the Orange network in France.
After this update, when I try to activate the internal camera in the video mode of Nikita’s GCam mod, the application crashes (before the update it was fine). I’m not complaining: I know it’s not an official port, it has no guarantees and it’s not related to Fairphone in any way, but I’m mentioning it because it might be interesting for the team to know.
In the default camera I have no problem activating any of the cameras in any mode
Just recently I noticed that after an update (also Google Play update) all my links/shortcuts on the home screen are lost. With links I mean e.g. a shortcut to the battery setting, or a link to a browser URL. Anybody does have the same issues?
