Hi there fellow FP-users.
I had some trouble installing the new Fairphone update. I thought I might share my story, for people who encounter the same problem.
After opening the “Fairphone Updater”-application, it did tell me there was a new update. However, I tapped the button “Download Update” a dozen times and nothing happend. Eventually - after restarting my phone twice and mashing the button some more- , it actually started downloading. After downloading it said “Reboot to install” (or something similar).
At this point, I thought everything was fine. During the reboot this appeared on my screen.
That didn’t look so well. However, after taking out my battery and rebooting and re-trying the update, the problem still existed.
I did find a workaround. When the “No command”-screen shows up (to which I linked earlier) press the “Power” button on top once. You’ll get a screen with options. Press volume down until you have highlighted “Update from SD”. Confirm with volume up/ (Be careful: you can not use “Volume up” to navigate through the menu.).
After this, scroll down (again, with volume down) to “/Updater”. Confirm with “Volume up”. When you’re in this menu, you should see a .ZIP-file named something like “fairphone-update-1.4.zip”. Highlight this and, once again, confirm with “Volume up”.
When this is done, you should return to the ‘main menu’. Here you must select te first option from the menu (“reboot now”) and confirm with “volume up”. Now, your phone should restart and the update will be completed.
I don’t really know why this happend, but I’m glad I did find a workaround. If anyone encounters a similar problem, please let me know.
If anyone can explain why this did happen, I would be very grateful as well.
EDIT: I’m currently unable to press anything in the new Fairphone Updater-app. So I can’t upgrade to the unified storage partition.
EDIT 2: After force quitting the Fairphone Updater-app and clearling all data, I was able to upgrade to the unified storage partition. Luckily, it all ends well .
