Hi dear Fairphone community,
I’ve just spent the last hours trying to find a solution on the forum that fits my needs, but I haven’t…So here it is: I wish to upgrade my rooted FP2!
My phone: FP2, flashed and rooted in march last year (still Android 5.1). I would like to update my OS to Android 6. I am a Google Service user (almost all of them) but I need root access to run my antitheft app.
Question 1: Would you recommend installing Fairphone Open, root it (i understood it’s very easy) and install all Google Apps, OR a rooted Fairphone OS (as i previously did)? I’d say Fairphone open would allow me to upgrade easily but I would need to install all apps after each upgrade. Correct?
Question 2: How can i upgrade my rooted phone? Do i need to “unroot” first and then upgrade, or can i just reinstall a new updated version straight?
Thanks for your support,
