  • iode 2.4 (04-07-2022)
  • with locked bootloader
  • (the avb key was flashed along 2.4)

The changelog on the github release is a little frightning

No problem. I did it that way. Just sideload the zip in recovery without wiping the data.
No problems at all. Everything’s running fine.

Just two things if you update to 3.0 that way:

You have to clear cache and data in bluetooth app after first start in 3.0. Otherwise if will crash permanently.
Settings/apps/ - show system apps - bluetooth apps

Enable developer settings
Enable “deactivate bluetooth a2dp hardware offload”
Otherwise bluetooth audio is not clear


And using the updater is not recommendet?

Why are such informations not documented in the changelog?

You can also use the updater

Maybe you still have to do the two steps. Happen only on updating from 2.4 to 3.0.
Not if installing from scratch

Using the updater worked flawless. But i also needet to clear the cache oft the Bluetooth service

At the weekend I updated my FP4 from iodeOS V2.5 to V3 Over the Air (OTA) with no issues. All my data was intact, only the bluetooth cache needed to be cleared to enable bluetooth. The only extra work was ensuring I backed up my SD Card as Android 12 insists on reformatting my SD Card before I can use it. (I have reposted this on the Fairphone forum too)

Nice work iode team, thank you

A quick update on the iodéOS updater:

Updated Over the Air (OTA) from V3.0 to V3.1. No data loss, no issues seen so far, smooth update. Used WiFi to download. Biggest imeadiate improvement, which may be a placebo, was the perceived improvement of the quality of the pictures using the Open Camera app.

Is iodéOS 3.0 still in beta? On XDA the last entry is from 02/05/2022 with iodéOS 2.4:

I would say official source is Github and thats up-to date
