Version 1.20 is simply a disaster.
The browser drag battery like hell. New PDF reader has a terrible interface and a shitty pinch to zoom that interferes with turning pages.

The average battery life with version 1.19.1 was around 48 hours, now it is 8 hours. :expressionless:

It’s safe to downgrade to 1.19.1? Via recovery or adb sideload? Or maybe to 1.17 (with the good Bromite browser)?

Working well so far but I’ve encountered one small issue: When trying to delete a newly taken photo in the Galery-view (the one that opens when one taps on the small icon in the lower right corner) of the Camera App (, v1.51.1). The confirmation dialogue appears but selecting “OK” doesn’t do anything. Editing and sharing both work fine.
Thanks for the continuous updates and improvements for /e/OS, cheers!

No problems so far

OK for my S9+ (Samsung S9+ SM-G965F - star2lte (purchased in /e/-shop) not rooted).
updated from 1.19.1 to 1.20

All functions/apps seems OK, also the #citymapper app (no freeze).

Thanks all for the work !

    Update went smoothly.
    Everything is working fine.
    I like the new PDF-viewer.
    Thanks to the team!

Apart for the now-classical eternal lock of the #Citymapper app, all correct as usual

All went fine. Rooting to inactive slot after OTA in Magisk also worked fine. But I was surprised, I believed 1.20 will be released with Android 13 for the Fairphone. Hopefully we will receive it next time. Thank you e/OS team for your work, I really appreciate it and also very happy with the system.

@Mr.V everything has been explained in great details here:

  • Version of /e/OS:1.20-t-20240222382228-dev-kiev after OTA update original install e-1.19.1-t-20240113373116-dev-kiev
  • Is the device Rooted / Not rooted: Not rooted by me, but dev version is loaded due to that being the version available to install for my device. I did not use easy installer.

When I loaded the 1.19 version everything seemed fine after the OTA update to 1.20 the App lounge will not load anything. When you open it and select “Anonymous mode” it will show the app icon grid with the “Wave effect” going across it but will never populate it. If left there for a long time (15 min) it comes back with an error pop up that says

“Anonymous login failed! This can be because token could not be generated / verified or other reasons.”

Clicking the more info button gives

“Unable to resolve host “” : No address associated with hostname Status: -1”

I have tried clearing the cache and data for the App lounge app but get the same result.

  • After the update, I’ve lost biometrics. I’ve added them again, and biometrics worked, but after I rebooted the device, they were lost again.
  • When I listen to Spotify, and close the app from Recent Apps, music is still playing (that’s good), but I’ve lost control over music playback from notifications - the music control center is still there, just not responding to anything - this only happens when the app is closed, I can control music from notification when the app is open.

Only one question : VoLTE icon is not present in status bar (but VoLTE is working perfectly). Is it possible to activate it (it was present in LOS) ?
