Our latest software update for Fairphone 4 users is now available.
Software Version: FP4.FP3V.A.116.20220414
Security Patch Level: 5th of April 2022
List of changes:
the network compatibility for several carriers has been enhanced
The update size is 84.63 MB for those who update from the latest software version.
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 4 users may receive this update later. Once the update is available you’ll receive a push notification to automatically update.
PS. I realise @UPPERCASE has already posted this afternoon (great job…beat me again! ), but I thought I would post anyway as I usually do because our social posts link to this forum topic. @Moderators, please feel free to merge these if that is preferable.
I was still waiting for A.107. I got the December update in late February. But here I am updating to A.0116. Nice
And I can confirm that the installed SIM card influences whether you find the update or not. I swapped cards with a friend yesterday and my phone instantly found the update to A.107, I downloaded it (but did not install), and swapped SIM cards back, but once I was back on my original SIM the updated was no longer available xD
The point is that it seems that Fairphone pushed an update for FP3 on FP4 because of the name starting with FP3 following a dot. If FP3 was somewhere random in the middle like fufykhfykffp3ukofro658ejo9 nobody wod have cared, a chuckle from a trained eye perhaps.
Yeah, it seems to me that this is yet again just a security update with minor tweaks. None of the more severe issues have been fixed. And once again, all of my Chrome shortcuts are missing. (Actual PWAs are fine.)
