Edit: I just saw there’s a preliminary new modem.zip, but I didn’t use that yet …

So … you can flash the new modem files, and you will get the fancy fastboot mode LED and vibration, and you can turn on the phone again while charging, but if you want the modem files for fixing e.g. the shutdown bug, those fixes are somewhere else, as explained here …

There was no new update yesterday right?

The LineageOS community seems to be in the process of rescheduling builds, because they recently set 15.1 builds back to weekly in order to be able to have nightly 16.0 builds (for supported devices) …

There’s no new LineageOS for microG build for the Fairphone 2 yet.
