Hi, I was having the same issue on my Galaxy S10e, and I assume I was also in stock recovery, not the LOS recovery. How did you reboot from stock recovery to LOS recovery?
Good question, that was months ago.
Try any and all of the following:

  1. with the phone switched off: power + volume down
  2. with the phone in stock recovery: power + volume down
  3. with the phone in stock recovery: boot to system, then power down, then 1
  4. adb reboot recovery (probably wasn' what worked for me but rather put me back in stock recovery)

Okay, I'll give it a shot again later today. Thank you.

Thank you for this Magisk module. However, the ultrawide camera does not work as intended: I can see the picture from this lens, but the camera does not take or save pictures. After I press the shutter button, nothing happens.
Has this been fixed in the meantime? Is the ultrawide camera usable now? I searched iodé and /e/ bugtrackers but couldn't find anything about this issue there. I'm just aware that ultrawide camera isn't exposed through Camera2API using stock Android, but maybe iodé was able to fix this issue?

Hello all forum and in particular to iode staff.
I have buy a Fairphone 4 and I would like install iodè os but I'm not sure at this point:

fastboot flash recovery_a <recovery for FP4>
fastboot flash recovery_b <recovery for FP4>

I have to repeat the same operation by writing: recovery_a iode-3.4-20221215-FP4-recovery.img and recovery_b iode-3.4-20221215-FP4-recovery.img?

Is it basically the same image file?
Thank you in advance.

Thank you in advance.
Yes, you flash the same recovery file to both slots (A/B) of recovery partition.

It was a nice rom until it just entered in a "safe mode" bug where I can't use my apss at all. Tried restarting it, messing around in developer options but nothing seems to fix this. Extremely annoying rom, can't recommend it.

Sounds to me like you activated the working profil.
I use it since 1 month and didn't entered such "safe mode" automatically.. Can you provide a screenshot of your homescreen & notification center?

No because it doesn't allow me to do that because of this safe mode bug. Just gave up and installed pixel OS. Google apps are horrible, but at least the rom is not full of bugs.

Is there a known issue with the Phone app? For some reason, when I call someone, they can't hear me unless I toggle Speaker Phone on, then back off. Then they can hear me for a bit, then apparently I cut out and have to toggle it again. Keeping it on Speaker Phone seems to remedy this problem.

This seems to happen whether I'm on wiki calling with no cell service turned on, or only cell service with no wiki. It doesn't seem to matter which. Would another dialer do the trick?

FP4 with iodeOS version 3.4-20221215-PF4

Edit: Meant PF4, not PF2.

Another issue while I'm here. I'll put this one in its own post:
The fingerprint reader rapid-fires when it's touched rather than trying once and stopping. The result is, when picking up the phone, if any part of your hand touches the scanner, the fingerprint reader fires several times very quickly, then reports that you can't use the fingerprint reader because there were too many tries forcing you to unlock the phone with the pin.

Thanks!

    Introduction

    iodéOS is a privacy-focused operating system powered by LineageOS and based on the Android mobile platform. iodéOS aims at protecting the user's privacy with a built-in adblocker and by freeing the smartphone from snitches.

    The objectives in the conception of this ROM are threefold:

    1. To keep the stability and security level of LineageOS, by minimizing the modifications made to the system. Apart the system modifications required by the adblocker, we mainly only added a few useful options commonly found in other custom ROMs, made some cosmetic changes, modified a few default settings to prevent data leaks to Google servers.
    2. To ease a quick adoption of this ROM by new users. We especially target users that are concerned by the protection of their privacy, but are not reluctant to still use inquisitive apps like Google ones. We thus included MicroG as well as a coherent set of default apps (all open source, with one exception), and simplified the initial setup of the system. Particularly, an initialization of MicroG has been made with GCM notifications allowed by default, a privacy-friendly network location provider (DéjàVu) pre-selected, as well as Nominatim Geocoder.
    3. To provide a new and powerful way of blocking ads, malwares, data leaks of all kinds to many intrusive servers. We are developing an analyzer, tightly integrated into the system, that captures all DNS requests and network traffic, as well as a user interface (the iodé app). Compared to some other well-known adblockers, this has the advantages of:
      • Avoiding to lock the VPN for that use. You can even use another adblocker that uses VPN technology alongside our blocker.
      • Being independent of the kind of DNS server used by the system or set by an independent app: classical DNS on UDP port 53 or any other one, DNS over TLS (DoT), DNS over HTTPS (DoH), ..., as we capture the DNS requests before they are transmitted to the system function that emits the DNS request. What we do not support, is DoH when it is natively built into applications, i.e. when an app communicates directly with a DoH server, without asking name resolution to the system. It would require to decrypt HTTPS packets between such an app and the DoH server, which may create a big security hole.
      • Precisely mapping DNS requests and network packets to the Android apps that emitted (or received) them.
      • Deciding which apps have a filtered network usage (by default, all apps), and which ones can communicate with blacklisted servers.
      Since its first versions, we added many features to the iodé blocker: several levels of protection, fine-grained control over the hosts that should be blocked or authorized, displaying statistics on a map to see the quantity of data exchanged to which countries, clearing statistics... We are actively developing the blocker, and new functionalities will be regularly added.

    Features

    Changes in LineageOS to prevent data leaks:

    • Default DNS server: Google's DNS replaced by Quad9's 'unblocked' servers in all parts of the system.
    • A-GPS: patches to avoid leaking personnal information like IMSI to supl server.
    • Captive portal login: connectivitycheck.gstatic.com replaced by captiveportal.kuketz.de for connectivity check.
    • Dialer: Google default option replaced by OpenStreetMap for phone number lookup.

    Pre-installed apps:

    We included many useful default apps, but our choice cannot suit everyone; so we added the possibility to remove them. It can be done at the end of the phone setup, or at any time by going to Parameters -> Apps & Notifications -> Preinstalled apps.

    • MicroG core apps: GmsCore, GsfProxy, FakeStore.
    • NLP backends for MicroG : DejaVuNLPBackend (default), MozillaNLPBackend, AppleNLPBackend, RadioCellsNLPBackend, Nominatim Geocoder.
    • App stores : FDroid (with F-Droid Privileged Extension) and Aurora Store.
    • Browser: our own fork of Firefox (with Qwant as default search engine, many other ones added, telemetry disabled, parts of telemetry code removed) instead of Lineage’s default browser Jelly.
    • SMS: QKSMS instead of Lineage's default SMS app.
    • Email: p≡p (Pretty Easy Privacy).
    • Camera: our own fork of Open Camera, with a few tweaks.
    • Maps/navigation: Magic Earth GPS & Navigation (the only one free but not open source).
    • Keyboard: OpenBoard instead of AOSP keyboard.
    • PDF: Pdf Viewer Plus.
    • Personnal notes: Carnet.
    • {Ad/Malware/Data leak}-blocker: iodé.
    • News: to keep users informed about our developments, as well as a FAQ.
    • Meteo: Geometric Weather.

    Pre-included FDroid repository:

    The apps that we tweak or develop (microG services, the browser based on Firefox, the News app, Open Camera ...) are available through a repository that we included in FDroid (check the "Apps for iodéOS" category). For this purpose and to avoid name conflicts of some apps, we also had to make a few changes in FDroid.

    Useful options from other custom ROMs:
    • Smart charging (disables charging when a given level is reached, to protect battery health).
    • Fingerprint vibration toggle.
    • Swipe down to clear all in recent apps (Android 10 only).

    • 07/02/2023 (build 20230131):
      • Upgrade to iodéOS 4.0 based on Android 13 / LineageOS 20
      • Blocker:
        • Improved blocking settings. You can now choose 'Standard' blocking (ads, trackers, malwares, etc) or 'Reinforced' blocking (same objective but more extensive), and then select additional categories.
        • The 'Porn' category has been extended to a wider 'Sensitive content' one, that also includes fake news, gambling, drugs, piracy, torrent..., with mainly child protection in mind.
        • The 'Extreme' category has been removed, as it is now part of the reinforced blocking.
        • Improved blocking lists. We merge several acknowledged and up-to-date sources, and have diversified our sources to produce more complete lists. The standard list has however been reduced a bit, to avoid as much as possible interference with apps expected behavior.
      • Added a new network location provider: Local NLP Backend. It is an improved version of the DéjàVu NLP backend which was already available in iodéOS. Like DéjàVu, it builds a local database connecting localizations learned from other NLP backends and apps using GPS, and mobile antennas/Wifi; but also has an active mode (not preselected) that can trigger GPS requests. To configure it: Settings -> System -> microG -> Location modules

    Add-ons

    • recovery-fp4-permissive.img: as the recovery we include in the rom is securized and does not allow flashing a package not signed by us, here is a more permissive recovery that allows flashing anything. It can be started in bootloader mode, by running 'fastboot boot recovery-fp4-permissive.img'.

    The OTA upgrade to 3.1 itself went fine, but since the device was rooted, there were a few additional things to do:
    a) re-enable the developer options in the settings,
    b) reinstall the permissive recovery from the OP, and
    c) adb sideload the Magisk zip file to re-install.
    After that, everything runs perfectly just like before the upgrade.
    Hi jackspeed,
    no need to do your step c). Install the OTA update via updater app, but don't reboot your device yet. Open Magisk app and tap on "install". Then you choose install method "Install to inactive slot (after OTA)". When Magisk installation is complete, reboot your device and root/Magisk is still present.

    Thank you for this Magisk module. However, the ultrawide camera does not work as intended: I can see the picture from this lens, but the camera does not take or save pictures. After I press the shutter button, nothing happens.
    There are some problems indeed. I removed the module, not usable yet.
