I have Fairphone 3 with /e/ OS. Everything fine so far. Today i got my FP 3+ Camera module, which is not working after installing. Now I see that i still have Android 9 after installing all updates in phone settings…
My FP3 runs now on: /e/OS 0.13-2020120889008
I think to get the camera work i need: /e/OS 0.13-q-2020120789006
How can i easy install the Android 10 update on the device?
Or is there another solution to get the camera run?

We had a developer work on modifying this and he was able to get it working for a Samsung device. That means for one particular model of Samsung we were able to upgrade the OS by sending the ROM OTA. The development stopped at this point mainly due to lack of resource and also because further development would require detail testing on multip…
