I have just updated to kola nut 1.8.5 and everything seems to be working fine. It is the first time I have updated my fairphone. I was not on 1.8 before.
I just have a question about this sentence in the main forum post about the update:
As i never had version 1.8 on my phone, I never experienced this ‘version 2 launcher’.
What is this? Is it something I might want to install? Is it possible to install and then revert back if i dont like it?
Version 2 Launcher was the launcher of the retracted version of kola nut (1.8).
It had bigger icons and some other changes. There was alot of negative feedback so 1.8.5 has the old launcher (v 1) again
Be AWARE: I think your settings of homescreens (incl. all your symbols) will be lost when switching between the versions.
At least this was the problem when updating from Cherry 1.6 (Launcher v1) to KolaNut 1.8 (Launcher v2).
So be aware, that this could happen also to you, and make a screenshot/paper note of your icons.
At the time of the 1.8 update, the new launcher’s icon size was bigger which resulted in somewhat blurry icons and in less space per home screen. Apparently they changed the icon size back to the old one?
