This time the update worked without problems. But I have the issue (for longer now) that a restart from the software does not work. If I klick on restart in the on/off-menu or after an update, the phone hangs up. I have to press the on/off-button for longer to restart the phone.

Yes, still running, everything is fine so far.
Updated to 1.16-s-dev via OTA, took a while but finished OK.
Thanks for your work /e/ - Team!

Updated from v1.15-s-stable to v1.16-s-stable
Not rooted

Usual straightforward update in just under 40 mins.

Initial testing so far shows all working OK, just the same couple of long standing issues mentioned previously (VPN not reconnecting on reboot / changing VPN server, upward swipe to return to home screen very unreliable).

Thanks for all the good work.

Update from 1.15-r-stable
Not rooted

App Lounge : “The anonymous account you’re current using is unavaible…”
Hit “Refresh session” but the message appeair again and again.
Clear cache and data.
No way…

Edit: problem seems appeared only with wifi, not with 4G !

no update to 1.16 possible but this page show the update from s to t into stable version for my pixel 5.

OTA upgrade is “under testing” at the moment, so i think you can expect this soon…

so there is no 1.16 stable release for redfin (s or t) ??

The 1.16-t-stable release is there, as your link shows, the upgrade can be done manually in case of need …

OTA upgrades via the updater to new major Android versions (in this case Android 12 S to Android 13 T) need to be specially prepared by the developers per device per upgrade step, which needs considerable time and effort. As @MRTN already pointed out, this is under testing for redfin currently.

I have still the same “com.mediatek.ims.ImsApp keeps stopping” -problem after 1.16 installation, that started after 1.15 update. I have cleared caches, reset apps, called operator (just getting instructions to clear caches and reset apps). There was advice to check “adb logcat” on this forum, but after previously bricking one phone with lineageOS installation, I’m not willing to try that advice. I really don’t know how to, and on the other hand, what to do after seeing the log…

I’m sending SMS-messages to manage my smart home devices and I don’t feel very smart after this update either.

Would anyone have any suggestions how to proceed?

No issues. Thanks to the Team! Works perfectly.

After 1.16-s update I still get “com.mediatek.ims.ImsApp keeps stopping” when sending SMS-messages. First SMS goes, but if sending more, “failed sending message” appears. This started to happen after 1.15-s update, and continues still.

OTA update went well without issues.
No problems so far with my daily driver.

Can´t confirm issue with sending SMS. It might be a device specific problem.
Because we run two GS290 with /e/OS and face sometimes issues on the second device.

Many thanks to Manoj and the whole murena team! :+1:

Works very well,

Thank you for your comment. My household has two GS290’s with ready installed eOS, and both of them has had same problem after 1.15-s update. I don’t know if Gigaset builds same phone models with variable components, or would that affect with ImsApp problem?

Hi @mok wanted to understand the issue…you are facing an issue on a GS290 after v1.15 s update in sending sms messages? @obdi you are facing this on one GS290
