I have a Fairphone 3 running /e/ on it, I’m running the most up to date /e/OS 0.20 on Android 10.
I have a number of issues that started a few weeks ago (these issues continued on /e/ 0.17, 0.18, 0.19, 0.20 - I tried all of these different versions to be sure it wasn’t that I just needed an update or to revert). I have also cleared data and restarted the phone many times, nothing has fixed it. Please help!
- Camera app doesn’t work, opens and reads “Failed to open camera. Camera may be in use by another application? ID:0” I can open the camera settings and look at photos but the camera simply won’t work.
- Also, the flashlight tool does not work. Where the flashlight button is in the drag down tool menu, it just looks greyed out and you can’t click on it or if you touch it nothing happens.
- Calling… when I call or someone calls me (any calling, on apps or regular calling) I can hear the person but they cannot hear me, then when I switch to speaker phone, suddenly they can hear me but I can’t hear the other person. I can use headphones to get around this issue but headphones are now not always reliable.
- Audio… I cannot listen to anything through the FP3 speaker, music or podcasts or an audio message - it is totally silent. On the screen it appears as though it is playing it aloud and I can click up and down on the volume but it remains totally silent.
To summarize - I never dropped my phone or put it in water, there is no damage to it. I use it regularly and update it. Nothing seems to fix these apparent software glitches. Any advice is helpful thanks !
