  • EPO: I noticed a few small changes in settings (Update period setting), but with the servers at Mediatek being so unstable, that doesn't really help. This solution by @BlaY0 seems to be the best, but since I am a noob regarding baksmaling, I'd appreciate it if this could be implemented into the next update. How about it, @_keesj?
Organizational issue: This thread is getting too long to read - I think it's time to start separate threads for issues like GPS accuracy and so on. What do you guys think?

And last but not least: Over a year since the first post, this subforum is finally dealing with the topics it's meant to deal with: Not just feedback on bugs, but actual ROM development - and that is awesome.

Problem with the battery suddenly dropping from 1X % to zero also occurs with FPOS after update to 1.6 and repartitioning.

True! Maybe we should move bug reports etc to another thread?

Yes, that's what they are for. Also to have a nice overview over everything and being able to help each other (usually the OP must include everything in their post) use the wiki! http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki...hone_Fairphone

I appreciate to bring up other threads, like bug reporting. And for developing threads it's always better to start a DevDB thread, where you can assign a Q&A thread and you have options to display, like feature requests and bug reports.

The wiki needs some work I think. For example there is another Fairphone out there, means, for the Fairphone 2014 you can remove the "M" from the SoC. Maybe we can push it a bit more? Can you place it in your signature? I included it in the (still very unknown) Fairphone index.

xda:devcon 2014
Hi,

We will be joining the xda devcon this year. I hope we can get in touch with some of you. I personally hope to get a better understanding of the XDA eco system and I am also looking forwards to talk to some MediaTek people.

See you there!

Good to hear you want to get in contact with Mediatek. Maybe you can get a hint why they're disclosing information about their GSM baseband processor that much. Harald Welte gives in chapter 7 of his phone "anatomy" paper [1] reasonable arguments why there's no need for it.

I wish all of you a good conference and best wishes getting in contact with the Mediatek guys.

Is the Fairphone vulnerable though the AOSP browser bug?

Are there plans for a security patch?

Regards
