Feedback for v1.11

Vendor Name: Fairphone
Device name: Fairphone 3+
Device CodeName: FP3
Version of /e/OS or Stock which existed previously: 1.10
Device is not Rooted

I updated to 1.11 without any problems.

However, since the upgrade to 1.9, my phone STILL loses WiFi-Connection after a random time. This can range from 20 minutes to 2 hours, but when the screensaver is on, my phone will definitely lose WiFI-Connection at some point.

Apart from this (and the horrendous Android 12): Thanks for keeping my FP3 alive!

I’d still recommend to change the formatting from phone storage to portable storage if there is no “portable storage” (or “Mobiler Speicher” line) directly shown at Settings > Storage. Phone storage has kept producing lost photos on FP3s and other phones ever since it was introduced with Android 9 or 10.

The warning that was shown to me when I formatted an SD card in my FP3+ in /e/OS Q or R:

Portable storage won’t let you move apps to the card, but phone storage has just kept causing the errors described.

EDIT: SORRY, the "portable storage" / "Mobiler Speicher" line unfortunately does not show anymore under Android 12. Here's what is shown in FILES with my portable storage SD card – I think if it was phone storage, the EJECT symbol probably would not show (if the card is listed there at all):

After the (strangely) long update process, the bootloader on my Sony XA 2 no longer finds a bototable Android system.
Update ota failed.

Working very well, thank eOS.

Hello @HarryRag ,
Just to mention:
FP 4 murena
Previous version: 1.10.s-stablefp4
When manually updating in AppLounge, since v1.11 update, the update all button doesn’t trigger the update of all apps anymore.


Version 1.11 feels a lot more sluggish, especially compared to v 1.10, which felt much smoother than its previous versions.

On a side note, I’ve found out that all my issues were down to one thing: 4G not being accessible (or something approaching) until I toggle it off and on again. Let me explain: if I launch the browser, the navigation app, etc… they won’t work with mobile data from the get go.

I hope a fix is still in the realms of what is feasible, considering my provider is Orange Reunion, and I’m probably the only one using /e/OS with said provider. However, I am more than willing to provide anything (e.g. logs) or try some settings to troubleshoot this issue.

Please let me know what I can do.

And, last but not least… You guys rock! I may have this problem (since 1.4 or 1.5, i.e. the then current version when I first installed /e/OS), but your project has been nothing but awesome. :wink:

Rooted: No

Update via OTA processed at 10.05.2023, no issues detected since then. Roaming (DE-CH) also working perfectly / WLAN w.o. issues.
Update went without problems.

Noticed the first time that there is a battery limit to prevent the update if battery is to low. Nice feature.

Many thanks to all who were involved in provide the /e/ OS 1.11 release.

Can´t await 1.12 :slight_smile:

One thing to note: I had to press several times the refresh button to get the update.

    /e/ Os Version: 1.11-q-20230509288094-stable-starlte

Updated flawlessly. I am a very happy /e/ user.
But I noticed I didn’t get any OS security updates over the past two monthly updates: the security patch dates back to February, 5th. Is this normal, since the security patch and the kernel version used to update together?
Thanks for your answer,

Android 10 now counts as End of Life in terms of Android security bulletin.

Android Security Bulletin—February 2023 show a few fixes against Android 10, the following month there are no updated Android SPLs for Android 10.

Not very easy to spot, but just the same is revealed in /e/OS Release Notes. Search the page for Security fixes we see

This /e/OS v1.xx includes the Android security patches available until {month}.

but when we follow the link mention of Android 10 is absent since March.

So the samsung s9 Murena phones that are being sold won’t get security updates?
Maybe there’s an Android 11 upgrade on the way?

Yes; it is “Under development” as an OTA Android version upgrade.

One can keep up with Development and Testing Updates in this weekly bulletin:
Development and Testing Updates, specifically to learn when this might happen, OS OTA upgrades.

Thanks very much for the info, Aibd. I think /e/ is indeed a very, very important project. When I started using Linux, at the very beginning of the century, I tried Redhat, Suse and also Gael Duval’s Mandrake. I’m confident /e/ is going to succeed.

Everything looks fine to me :slight_smile:

It seems that the usb files transfert did not work no more. All choice button are in grey and I cannot use them.
It seems to be similar to this one and I made a few tries with the original cable and others with thesame result : nothing.

I answer me : I succeeded to copy the file with a new cable : those of my Galaxy S6 tab instead of the original cable or others.

Issues experienced:
EDIT : Bad timming for my update. The issue was caused by a big network failure in France.

  • Normal calls are not working anymore: I can’t hear the ring tone when I call. When the other person answers, I ear a very distorted/not audible voice.
  • The sound quality in Signal/Whatsapp is very, very bad (calling possible but painful)

Everything else works smoothly :slight_smile:
