I received FP2 two days ago and am complete newbie in Android and phones in general. Something I do not get about OS, the advanced mode proposes an update from Onion 1.0 and even download the new system (Fairphone FP2-GMS36 1.1.7), reboot, and nothing has changed, this I did twice. Now it announces that this version (GMS36 1.1.7) is outdated. So I wonder what’s up?
By the way if I remove GAPPS through rooting, which I intend sooner or latter since I like to be root on my system and do support open mode as much as possible, do I loose the support of FP or the warrant?
The current google apps do not suit me, for example I find it difficult to find as simple a thing as a contact address book that does not synchronize to google account. Some may find that trendy and convenient, I find that intrusive, or at least I want to decide what does what. And since I am new to Android (previous phones were just phones) I find it time consuming to search an app that would suit my taste.
