22 July 2116 -- wrong Date & Time
#1
Hi guys,

once every few days, sometimes weeks, my phone's system time leaps to 22 July 2116, which of course has a lot of side effects (on axolotl, geary, calendar and so on). 

Has anybody else experienced this? And is there a fix?

Best, Anna

I don't have this exact issue, but I do get the time mess up. What I've noticed with the time messing up is: sometimes my phone locks up, and I can't get the screen to turn on. I end up resetting it by holding down the power button for 15 seconds. I noticed that if I do this out of range of my wifi network, the time can switch to a few hours previous to the current time. Sometimes the date gets messed up. If I don't do anything else, it never fixes itself until I get back in range of my wifi network. It's like it only syncs the time over wifi. I think the time should sync with the phone network time, not the wifi network time.

This was fixed with a recent kernel patch https://lore.kernel.org/linux-sunxi/2021...and.org/T/

You can apply the patch and recompile the kernel https://gitlab.com/mobian1/wiki/-/wikis/Kernel-Build

Distributions based on the megous kernel have the patch already. https://github.com/megous/linux/releases...10519-1214

Manjaro, Arch Linux Arm, have the patch. U-Boot has also been patched, it would sometimes hang at boot without it.

thank you! great info!
Although....I have to admit, I have no idea how to recompile a kernel - any chance I can just get the update through the plasma discover app? If not, don't worry about it, I'll just wait for the fix to become "general".

ok, maybe I spoke too soon- I looked at your https://gitlab.com/mobian1/wiki/-/wikis/Kernel-Build - it actually looks do-able. I will study that and see if it's something I can do..... thank you!

I simply set the correct time and date in settings,    and turn off the 'Automatic Date & Time'

Even after reboots and updates it keeps showing the correct time.

Unless you are crossing time zones  often ?   That should work until the Dev's  get that resolved.

Thank you guys!

Switching off Automatic Date and Time seems straightforward enough.

I wonder whether the issue might already be resolved: I haven't encountered any problems since my post and recently there have been so many updates and so many great improvements that I am presently really happy with my phone. Heart Heart Heart

I have been doing that for months and I have not noticed any negative effects,

While I do regular 'updates' I also do complete fresh installs pretty often.

BUT I am also still running from the sd card.... I still have the Post Market OS on the eMMC from the factory.
