Updating LineageOS 15.1 for microG via TWRP + feature test

There is a new version of OpenCamera in the PlayStore, not yet on F-Droid… perhaps there are also fixed for FP2 users :)?

After updating microG Services Core from version 0.2.5.12879 to 0.2.6.3280, the services crashes repeatedly.
A downgrade via F-droid is not possible. Do I have to wait for the next update of the services or is there another way of downgrading?

How exactly did you update?
My F-Droid doesn’t list the microG Services Core.
Yalp lists it, but as microG tries to mimick Google services and Yalp accesses the Google Play Store, I would suspect Yalp would take microG for the real thing and try to install the real Google services if I would let it, but I don’t know that for sure, I’m just careful :slight_smile: .

You could try to install the last LineageOS for microG build again, I guess.

I have the MicroG-Repo activated in F-Droid.

But I solved it by myself. Stopping and deactivating MicroG Services sufficed, then I was able to reinstall the 0.2.5.12879 version.

Hi @marvelart1234 !

What do you mean by custom ROM? LineageOS+MicroG is just a flavour of LineageOS, automatically build, so IMHO there is similar risk as installing LineageOS official.
By official ROM, do you mean supported by Fairphone company, so only FPOS and FPOOS ? Or do you consider LineageOS community-supported as official ROM?

The OTA-installer of LineageOS uses TWRP anyway, so installing directly the update from TWRP (due to the bug that prevents lineage to reboot in recovery) doesn’t change much IMHO, do you have other experience?

Not with a Fairphone 2, that much is certain judging by the profile and the posts so far :slight_smile: .

Is this happening to someone else or is it just me?

It’s due to the (famous/infamous?) new-camera-reboot bug…
Workaround: turn on your flash before starting the LOS update :smiley:

EDIT: or just maintain volume up during the reboot triggered by the LOS updater…

FP2 with the old camera modules.

Seems to be somewhat random. I’ve never lost them (currently running LOS+mG 2018/10/15).

Actually I wouldn’t have thought much about it, as I inexpertly consider Bluetooth a mess along with e.g. WiFi and USB, where unexpected stuff can happen at any time :slight_smile: … but I thought I’d mention it, because …
