I received my Fairphone from the last batch that was shipped this month (Feb. 2015). When I booted the phone, everything worked but the Fairphone Updater came up telling me that I run the OS version 1.5 and that I should update. I started the update and granted the Updater root access. It downloaded the software, rebooted the phone when the green Android came up and it looked like it installed the update.
When the system rebooted, the Fairphone Updater came up again, telling me that I’m still running 1.5. Even though there were no error messages during the upgrade process, nothing seems to have happened.
What I tried:
- Deleting all the App data from the Updater and running it again. Didn’t help.
- Upgrading to another version: 1.6, 1.7, 1.8 - Nothing worked. Still stuck with 1.5
I then thought I could just flash the latest image. But when I was looking for an image to flash, only version for the first (FP1) and the second (FP1U) batch of phones came up. Since my phone is from the third, 2015 batch, I had no idea what image to use.
Could you tell me how to get the updater to work or what image to use to update manually?
EDIT: Ok, I found out that those are also FP1U devices. But now I’m not sure what version to install. The tutorials are not clear about whether it’s ok to install 1.8 or not. Some tutorials claim that 1.8 is the latest stable version and others that it has been postponed.
