Issue#8695: Fairphone 2 - NFC Chip

  • @Tracy_Beckett wrote:

    Hi all

    I've been wanting to use Android Pay on my FP1 but I refuse to buy an Apple or Samsung phone to have a NFC chip. I was thinking about ordering the TP2 but wondering if anyone has the Fairphone 2 and found a NFC chip from elsewhere that works in that phone? If not I guess I will have to wait until something has been produced.

  • Issue#62709: Fairphone - FP2: Sync Issue with MS Exchange (contacts)

    @KleinerAdmin wrote: My Exchange account on FP2 in general works: mails, calendar and contacts sync fine. But entering or changing a birthday entry in the Android contacts app prevents syncing contacts with Exchange any more. Syncing works again if the birthday entry is dropped in FP2. If birthday entries are entered or changed in my Office Outlook or Outlook Web Access, these changes are successfully synced with my FP2. Searching the web gives a highly interesting result (androidcentral). In short, an internal format mismatch of the Androids date is most likely the reason my Exchange 2013 server rejects this sync request. I created Exchange server-side logs and found the following error message in the sync-log: SyncCommand_ConvertRequestsAndApply_Change_AcceptClientChange_Exception : Microsoft.Exchange.AirSync.AirSyncPermanentException bei Microsoft.Exchange.AirSync.SchemaConverter.AirSync.AirSyncUtcDateTimeProperty.get_DateTime() bei Microsoft.Exchange.AirSync.SchemaConverter.

    @janosch wrote: Continuing the discussion from FP2: How to use the Dual SIM feature?: Hello everyone, Since I am currently living in the United States, I am using the dual SIM feature of the FP2 to use my American and German plan on the same time. Like @moritzheinz, I also have the problem that my phone consequently uses the wrong SIM card. The steps he described (In the telephone app go to: Settings -> Call Settings -> Phone Account Settings -> Make calls with ... and change to the correct card), work fine. Nevertheless they are just a workaround for a bug in the Android system, which prevents the phone app from using the general settings (Only the option "Ask every time" seems to get synchronized). This is not only annoying, but also expensive. A call, which is routed from the United States to Germany and back to the United States is really nothing you want to see on your bill.

I located the problem, that Android fails to set the hardware clock (as the hardware clock is running from 01.01.1970) since you last removed the battery. For other: If you run the command "hwclock" you get the hardware clock time, which is set to the system/software clock every boot. If you run "hwclock -w" (which should set the hardware clock from the system clock), you get an error message.Cheers. Posts: 1 Participants: 1 Read full topic

  • Issue#740801: CaptivePortal issue on Fairphone Open OS?

    @freibadschwimmer wrote: Has anyone on Fairphone Open OS experienced some difficulties with CaptivePortal? I needed to use an open wifi connection last week, but my FP2 couldn't open the authentication page to log on to the open Wi-Fi.Since my notebook as well as other people's phones could connect, I suspected it might be an issue with CaptivePortal which was failing, though I'm not sure about it. I finally managed to workaround the issue, by simply trying to the connect to the router, which very often has the IP; this actually worked. However, without that trick I wouldn't have been able to connect to use the internet connection of the network. I have to say that I was still using 16.04, so I don't know if I would have the same issue with 16.05, and I also have to test possibility now. Anyhow, I was wondering if some my settings prevented my phone from connecting to the login page, or if this is a general issue with the Open OS. Did anyone weeks experience problems

  • Issue#794866: Fairphone - 1.4.2 rebooting multiple times a day - systemUI issue?

    @LaurieJ wrote: I upgraded to 1.4.2; on 1.3.6 my FP2 was basically fine, although once every couple of weeks I would get an apparently random reboot. 1.4.2 is very unstable. My usage pattern has not changed but now I am getting multiple reboots a day. They occur when I am using the phone most often but in different apps - I can be zooming in google maps, clicking send in FB messenger, selecting a photo in instagram. As a rule I am doing something on the screen though. There are two additional aspects. About 1 reboot in 6, it's not a 'quick' restart; it does the "optimising android apps" thing you get after an update. This takes maybe 20minutes and is a real problem - especially when it does it when I really need the phone! I know of no way to skip this. About 1 in 4 times, it's not just restarting - it is crashing / screen black / whatever and requiring a battery remove/replace to get it going again. Finally, I have had a few "system UI has stopped" errors at various points. P

  • Issue#800946: Fairphone - 1.4.2 wallpaper issue?

    @LaurieJ wrote: I'm on 1.4.2 (and have reinstalled this once). Sometimes when the phone has been asleep for a while, you click the power button and successfully swipe the unlock pattern, then the screen shows wallpaper (no icons) for a second before the screen blanks (black, but illuminated) and then relocks. This repeats each time I unlock (pattern unlock). After a couple of attempts at this, the next time you try to unlock it has reverted to the default wallpaper rather than the photo (my set wallpaper). The only way to get out of this loop is a reboot (then change wallpaper back to photo again). Never saw this on 1.3.6. I am using the same photo image as wallpaper as I have with both FP1 and FP2 since launch; all vanilla FP OS. Posts: 1 Participants: 1 Read full topic

    @root wrote: Hi! I've been a happy FP2 user for nearly 4 month now, running FPOSOS (self-compiled in the beginning, now on FPOSOS 16.05 and 16.06). My FP2 started to behave strange in the last week (reboots, empty battery in the morning after charging all night, etc. - all the good & known stuff). Tonight I wanted to find out what's wrong. I can say: Charging is fine when the phone is switched off I can transmit data in "fastboot" mode (e.g. "fastboot -w update ..." works) As soon as the OS is started, charging becomes a game of luck. And whenever I plug the phone into a computer, the USB connection choice dialog would not appear. Nothing, no "adb" etc. Strange, isn't it? What I did now: Data reset Wipe each and everything Re-install FPOSOS 16.06 Re-install FPOSOS 16.05 Removed all SIM cards and the SD card as well Repaired permissions from TWRP Completely disassembled the phone (all modules), cleaned contacts with alcohol (no, not with beer!), assembled the phone again

  • Issue#1070553: Fairphone - FP2 backcover NFC with PN533

    @tko wrote: Hi, NFC cover will be the deciding factor on whether I'll hold on to my FP2. I love many features of it, but the lack of NFC will eventually drive me away. I seriously hate that my employer-provided-POS-samsung works with the (NFC-based) public transportation of my home town, and my FP2 doesn't. Some NFC solutions have been proposed here on the forum, but their goals seem rather over-the-top for my purposes. I just need NFC. Since my time is rather limited at the moment, I thought I'd better ask here first for any apparent pitfalls or prior knowledge. Do you know about possible troubles I'll run into if I try to interface NXP's NFC controller PN533 [1] to FP2 back port (PN533 has a USB interface)? Would I need to create drivers for PN533? The drivers might already be present in the android kernel [2] (I'm not a kernel-developer), and adafruit has neat NFC schematics for the sister-chip (PN532) that may prove useful [3]. [1]

This issue is more visible when the brightness value cursor is in the first third. Note that after some seconds, the brightness get the correct value (the sensor is working). I didn't have this issue before. It sound like a minor issue but it is very annoying and make auto-adjustment unusable.
