Using LineageOS on the FP2

I did as advised (there isn’t anything setting in the TWRP App) but google play still list it.
Any idea how to get rid of it?

Just go to Settings -> Apps -> 3 dots in the top right corner -> show system

The “Deactivate” button is grey for this app, I can’t use it on my phone :-/
Anyway, with Titanium it works, thanks :slight_smile:

Does the Dual SIM feature work yet? If so, I would move from FP Open to Lineage on Friday evening… :slight_smile:

I’ve just tried the first time since I’d switched to LineageOS, no problems here.
Is there anything special I might try that possibily cause problems?

Works for me on the latest build (from LineageOS 14.1 with OTA updates for FP2).

No, just receive and make calls. Thanks.

no problems encountered

(I just would have written “works” but the forum tells me to write at least 20 signs :wink: )

If you don’t want to use adb you can also use TWRP to copy the file. I did this with the NetworkLocation.apk and it worked well.

Hey, everybody. A screenshot of the initial wizard setup with the logo centered would came handy to make a splash screen.

PM me one while you enjoy using such a great OS, :slight_smile:


After having used the first version of Lineage for a week or so, I had to send my display for a replacement.I do have my display back and have updated Lineage through OTA updates.
Unified NLP works perfectly. I moved it to the system/priv-app folder using TWRP.
I am very happy with the results.
The ONLY thing I am missing is the Fairphone Ringtone. :slight_smile:

I am using LineageOS on my FP2 since a few days now, and so far without any problems. :slight_smile:

I formatted the SD-card as internal (adopted) storage and was surprised that the storage is then automatically encrypted. This is great and works well for me.

But there is also a downside and a warning for all who want to use the SD-card as internal storage: since the storage is encrypted, there is no easy way to access the data from the SD-card slot of your computer. You will need a Linux system and some experience with the Linux command line (more info about this e.g. here or here). You should also backup the key from /data/misc/vold since this is the only chance to get access to the data on SD-card if something breaks the system on your phone or you did a factory reset.


I’m using Lineage for 1 day now and have two questions:

  1. I keep having the info thatn WiFi is connected, but no internet - but the internet still works. Does this have to do with the MAC-Problem? (See pic: WiFi with x)
  2. In my status bar I have the hashtag-icon. Where does this come from?

The hashtag icon says, that an app has root access this moment.


The only issue I face is this:
Call Volume too high even on lowest level. This is a known issue which will be investigated and should be fixed with the next Update of Fairphone OS or Fairphone OpenOS.
And then, with the new modem files, it should be fixed on Lineage OS as well, right?

Is the non-working UPnP a LineageOS or a general Android 6 or 7 issue?
I did not notice, if it was working with FP Open and Android 6.
Anybody with a different device with UPnP working?

Lineage uses the Trebuchet Launcher - which is fine. On my old FP Open OS with the FP-launcher you could assign a different launcher to a click on the home-button. I added KISS-launcher there to quickly search for contacts (sadly not music). Is this possible on Lineage aswell, or do I have to install the FP-launcher again?

A single tap on the home button will always get you to your default launcher, which you can define any way you like.
You can also set KISS as your search app so it will be started on long pressing the home button (or define any other activity).
