Today software version FP5.TT3P.A.112 was published.
Change log says:
“DC Dimming has been added as an option to the Display settings.
When enabled, this feature helps alleviate eye fatigue or headache for those that can see a flickering effect on the display while the brightness level is low.”
What is your experience until now? Especially is the AoD battery drain fixed?
I do see a difference in backlight bleeding with DC dimming enabled. It seems like option does make the screen behave as it should, deep darkened blacks. But if that solves the battery drain remains to be seen.
as FP5 is for EU yet, try contactsupport with question about OTA avaiability for Non-EU SIM’s
alternatively you can install latest full rom from november when unlock bootloader:
but for FP5 is only fastboot methot which wipe all data…
BTW: in above link is at this time zip for previous month (v106), for latest(v112) look here
if this problem be longtime… maybe create thread where users can publish(i can if remember) monthly OTA “diff/patch” (official!) links, with it can be maybe doing montly offline/sideload update without data lost… similar as regular OTA online update (is same zip file ofcourse) this links can be simply grabed with “LogCat Reader” (app on phone) or “adb logcat” (on PC with usb cable) when OTA is found and downloaded on Phone…
In general this always need have on phone previous system version, not possible install this small update with skipping, is differential update to previous version…
BTW: before some year i’m doing this in XDA thread with Nokia 7 Plus, as some users in some countries not have OTA notify, but with link i (or others) grab can be possible sideload without data lost, of course not sure if this work on FP5…
Did you do something special on your phone? Install a firewall? Disable a service? Install some kind of “ad-blocker”? Did you try the update while connected to a wifi router? Maybe try while being connected to a different wifi network?
The SIM was the trick.
I set “Use SIM” to off
And suddenly I can see
“System update available”
Download is possible even with SIM turned back on.
edit: @FrancescoSalvatore The SIM which blocks system updates is from Consumer Cellular, MVNO of ATT. Thjs is an American SIM, not a European one, which appears to be blocked.
If you need further testing, I can provide it.
Before that update my phone used to have the VoWifi symbol in the bar on top, that has disappeared now. I can still recognize VoWifi being active in the phone app where the wifi symbol is shown in the telephone earphone symbol. Is this a correct behavior, is there a setting for this that I’ve overlooked?
