We’re excited to announce that the new software update Kola Nut 1.8.7 is here. From today, the update will be available once you connect to a Wi-Fi network. Your Fairphone will check for the update automatically, or you can open the Fairphone Updater app yourself to begin the process.
Kola Nut 1.8.7 is an important software update with security fixes, including those for the Stagefright bug.
For the full list of changes, please have a look here.
How to update
There are two steps to install the new software update. You can see how these steps work in detail in the interactive tutorials we’ve created (available in German, Dutch, French and English).
Here’s how to update:
Step 1 will download and install the Kola Nut 1.8.7 software update from the Fairphone Updater app.
Step 2 will reinstall Google Apps. If you wish to exclude Google Apps from your Fairphone, you can skip this step.
We want to thank the people who were part of the beta testing for contributing valuable community feedback.
