Software update: FP4.FP4I.A.175.20221207

Hi, the pipeline is full of bugs to be fixed. These changes seem to be part of the overall A12 migration.

Let’s hope so… Your guess is as good as mine :slight_smile:

Is there a download for the boot image already?

I think you need to pronounce the word somewhat more. We’re still missing the December (first of December) update, which fixes four critical errors.
But butter then being still on the one of September. I’m still hoping for the best.


Update went smoothly, no problems noted so far.


10 posts were split to a new topic: Pixel vs. Android security patch

A post was merged into an existing topic: Pixel vs. Android security bulletin

I’m using a F4 with Telenet as provider in Belgium. After the update I got a notification that I needed to redo my settings. I ignored it, and everything seems to be working fine.

Update installed with no issues by now :slight_smile:
Android security update : 5th November
Google Play services update : 1st November


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.


What’s your blocker? :thinking:
I regularly update a rooted FP4 for a family member and it’s less than a minute of additional work …


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


Sure :open_mouth:
Or do you mean re-rooted :wink:

I like to decide myself when to update my systems (phone, PC, server). It should not be read as “I don’t update forever”.

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?

Thank you, is disabled. Does that prevent updates even after the 29 days period?

Still no vibration intensity option available and I still didn’t get a reply to the ticket that I opened on the 18th of december… :frowning:

The last ticket I opened said 5 to 6 working days (minimum)

Well the 18th was a Sunday so, 19, 20, 21, 22 we are only on day four. You’ll be lucky to hear much this year given 24, 25 26 which are weekends and holidays etc. etc. etc. 2023
