Seriously and with all due respect, to people who want to help out, I can recommend to install Matrix/Riot/Freenode and join #wearefairphone since this is where developers (z3ntu, mal, chrmhoffmann, …) are hanging out and collaborating.
Hi Pulsahr! I read your message a while ago. Now, having my own phone since half a week, I realized, that we don’t even have a way to root the phone.
I googled a bit about TWRP and found a guide on how to build your own TWRP.
even a fairphone 2 experience on that:
this would be a great step so far. even if you just get started, others could join in and help testing. I would. thought about starting it on my own, but my studies are quite… consuming right now.
well. I am not a dev myself. but I googled about that and there was some
way to find the partition mtp list via adb. I’d try it myself - if my
FP3 wouldn’t have problems with the USB jack. (wtf, it’s brand new!! OT)
and you can even run TWRP via fastboot without flashing it, then
sometimes you’re even able to backup the stock recovery image. again, as
far as I understood.
Thanks for the information. So Lineage OS development has not even started. Damn, seems like I have to stick with a borrowed phone for a while.
Can these instructions clean the FP3 from any Google app? I didn’t read everything, but I’m not sure I should try without knowing perfectly what will happen. And as there is no boot image ready, I’m not sure I want to try without a rollback plan.
Back then it was a little bit more easy to port TWRP because the source code was available. However seems that some people already asked for the source code. And I’m optimistic that it will be published in the near future.
I also got my FP3 already. And needed to realize that I’m very happy with LineageOS (for microG) on my FP2 and don’t want to switch that fast to a non-Google-free Android OS. So don’t know why I ordered the FP3 that fast. I feel little like one of these crazy Apple fans Let’s see what will come. As I’m still happy with my FP2, I’m patient for that.
I haven’t been able to find an answer anywhere, but can someone tell me if there’s a MicroG+LineageOS being worked on for the Fairphone 3?
Recently decided it was time to deGoogle my life. But my current phone is so old it’s not supported. And I’m looking for something durable. Hence Fairphone.
Pretty new to all this, but from what I can tell the LOS build is pretty well underway, right?
