Software update: FP4.SP28.B.065.20230420

I struggle to find this, anyone with more luck?
I did use the Search function in the settings to no avail.

Update installed without problems, rebooted and “System update completed” (or similar) displayed. I even gave it another reboot hoping the setting would emerge. Feeling a bit like someone hunting for an easter egg :blush:


I can’t find it either. However, it seems to be turned on by default. The accent color changes correctly according to the selected wallpaper.


It seems there was some miscommunication about this change. As @Razem pointed out, it’s enabled by default. An easy way to check this is to change your Home Screen wallpaper to one with a different predominant color.

I will update the post and release notes accordingly, and ask for more clarity in regards to whether we can expect a manual setting.


I’ve tried Repainter again after this update and now it works without root, just follow the instructions!

Then you can manually set the theme color in the free version.

A good thing is: They already provided the boot image on Fairphone 4 Kernel Source Code — FAIRPHONE open source documentation

Things improve…


I think the “too dim” screen problem introduced with A12 is corrected. Can’t find the topic for reference, sorry.

[edit] Random brightness decrease after A12 update - #98 by chantoine


It’s not working on my FP4 and I use Hyperion Launcher. Is this only for the stock launcher?

I have also now noticed an issue with the keyboard now and this bug also happens with 3rd party keyboards as well. If you bring up the app selector or if you stop typing and then come back to the keyboard it stops working. Tapping on the keyboard or swapping to different ones doesn’t fix it.

Where can I report bugs?

I can’t confirm. I open Messages, start typing, switch to another app, go back to Messages. Keyboard still working.



Another shameful update(

Anyone noticed anything else having changed? (Question)

(Yes, the update only mentioned the material thing, so I guess that’s all besides the security patches, but one can always hope…)

The only change - Material You- I did not really notice since I already had Repainter in use before :wink:

Sorry, dimming bug is back since this morning.

Sofar, I did not receive the update on my Fairphone 4 in the Netherlands

As you know from last time it can take some days


This is total garbage. Instead of fixing issues (!!AptX!!) you get a useless cosmetical function which cant be turned off.
Fairphone get your s*** together.


When in update

fix this problem widget.
