I need to connect to my internet provider Wifi (“Free mobile” in France) through EAP-SIM protocol.
I do not know if the fairphone 3 Dual Sim causes the issue, but I cannot select the SIM slot to be used by EAP Sim, and the Wifi finally never get connected.
PS: Nokia 1 running Android 10 (also dual sim) connects perfectly, and allows to select the SIM used.
check out this comment by Philippe / Kariboo92 in Aug 2019 on FreeWifi. The issue is unsolved, an open implementation still missing?
he looked at how Samsung implemented EAP-SIM, using some wpa_supplicant compile options and a smartcard 3rd party library (libpcsclite) to interface with the SIM. It’s the same what a user did on a normal Linux to solve it. It links an Android smartcard project that has precompiled packages, as I don’t know if psclite could talk to the HAL for the SIM of an Android. A android SE thread should be updated if anything new comes up.
Is FreeWifi_secure working with standard Fairphone OS?
Does android r solve the issue?
in the FP forums, this wasn’t discussed for the FP3, only for the FP2: 🇫🇷 Pb avec freewifi secure - Fairphone 2 - Fairphone Community Forum and yes, seemingly was implemented for the FP2 (see changlog). Maybe start a thread there? not seeing a FP3+FreeWifi_secure post kind of makes me speculate it works with stockrom
I’m sorry I’m of no further help, cannot test EAP-SIM locally easily.
Yes, I can confirm FreeWifi_secure functions on FP3+ with FPOS (I’m running 8901.4.A.0012, Android 11).
However, I’m running /e/ (0.23) on a FP2 and it does not work in this configuration. One of my reasons for the FP2 is to prepare a move to /e/ on my main FP3 but this is a bit of a blocker. I’m happy to help with testing or in any way I might be useful. Though I’m partly a developer I haven’t worked on Android (yet )
This is not a problem for me, I can select the SIM alright, (in fact it gets selected automatically as there’s only one) but the phone then endlessly attempts to connect.
Here’s a link to a conversation I’ve had in the FP forum. In
Same problem for me, cannot connect to free WiFi secure anymore since migration with my FP3
Does someone know hie to make it work again ?
Hello, just a message to confirm that EAP-SIM works correctly on LibreMobileOS latest version for Xiaomi Redmi 10T lite (Gauguin) phone (Android 12)
And as LMODroid is based on LineageOS (just like e/OS) it should work.
(Note that I haven’t yet tested under e/OS).

interesting. Wonder where it’s implemented, but I’d rather guess it’s device specific (somwhere in vendor libs). If you have a logcat while you connect you get an idea what services are involved
I can no longer take a log because i just swapped this ISP for another.
