It may sound weird but how can I disable this update?
On my Fairphone 4 I read a “threat” that the update will be installed automatically in 29 days.
I don’t want it now or in 29 days.
My Fairphone is rooted, that means there are a few things to consider for system updates.
In Developer options you can disable Automatic system updates.
This info is for people who know what they are doing. For most of us, including me, it’s important to install new versions whenever they become available; some people like to wait for a few days which is why the 29-day delay is there.
Yes, I updated my rooted FP4, too (from A.170 to A.175). For me it ran into a boot loop, however. So I updated the phone and re-rooted it afterwards. As I did not have a 175 Boot-Image at hand I did this with the 170 Boot-Image and that worked out well
For the next few weeks I am not at home. That is the real blocker.
I remember you described to process needed to update a rooted phone. But I couldn’t find your posting. Would you mind to post it again and/or pointing me into re right direction?
The updates frequently mess up settings. I also gave up on Firefox shortcuts on the home screen. They are removed with every update. Also other settings sometimes get reset. Best is to #contactsupport.
I didn’t notice any settings getting reset this time though. But it happens.
