Continuing the discussion from Fairphone 2 (FP2) workaround:
Just to say I’ve seen this again today running the latest update. I hadn’t needed the phone for a while and when I tried to turn it on the battery was dead. Strange. I got it charged again, did the latest update and a few things. When I had finished, I turned it off in the usual way, but it immediately rebooted. It did this several times. In the end I managed to get it to turn off in the following way:
- connected to a power source (the computer)
- with the lock screen, long press on power button > Power > Power off
- the phone powered off and then went into “charging” mode
- unhooked the USB cable, it turned off instead of rebooting.
Having managed to do this, I can now power off normally again. I think the trick was to shut down from the lock screen, though this is no longer necessary.
Anyone else seen this?
I now suspect that the battery was run down if the last time I’d turned it off it had simply rebooted without my noticing.
