Note : I used the test channel to get 1.21-t stable build in advance.

An issue that affects me since 1.19.1-t (initial install from Stock FPOS A.141) is still in 1.21-t:

Issue that seem to have been fixed with this patch :

Current state: Usable with workarounds (rebooting the phone on bug occurrence).

Previous Version of /e/OS: 1.20-t (stable)

Fairphone | FP3+ | FP3 | previously on /e/OS 1.20-t-20240222382228-dev-FP3 | not rooted

Update (dev) became available briefly after midnight (Germany time), installed without major problems. I did get (twice) an error message “Android Web View was repeatedly stopped“ (my translation) during the installation process (apparently without affecting the latter). Device remained cool. Did not explode.

EDIT 12 hours on:
Not an issue, but an observation. I’ve got the Telephone+LTE icon in my status bar for the first time now (note: I have data and Wi-Fi off).


I assume this indicates my calls are enhanced by VoLTE now? Any suggestions how to handle this (like will it impact battery)?


No update for AsusSake zenfone 8 ?
still 1.19.1

1.19.1 would mean you are still on Android 12 (S) according to

Upgrading to the new underlying Android 13 (T) and with this to /e/OS 1.20 or now 1.21 on your phone means installing manually. Remember to backup your important stuff on the phone to a safe place beforehand.


I think the new feature is just that the icon is being displayed. You may have been using VoLTE even before. At least that is how I interpret this item in the release notes: when Voice over LTE option is available to make a call, an icon appears in the status bar.


Thank you very much! I actually did check the Release Notes, but missed that bit – always good to have a second look (or a second pair of eyes :wink: :+1: ).

Fairphone 5 (not rooted), attempting upgrade from 1.20-t.
The update is not coming up even after repeated refreshes.
Will try later.

Are you on the dev or on the stable version? (If you bought the FP5 from Murena, you are on stable)
As of now, v1.21 is not available yet for stable.

I see. I’m on stable yes.

Strange, i’m on stable (20240323388918) but my FP5 is just a normal one or ist this another “stable”?

I’m glad to report that the horrible “self”-discharge of 1.20T seems to be gone now (1.21T).
