Ambiances are not ordered with favorites first

REPRODUCIBILITY (% or how often): always
BUILD ID = OS VERSION (Settings > About product): 4.1.0.24
HARDWARE (XA2, Xperia 10…): XA2
UI LANGUAGE: Spanish
REGRESSION: (compared to previous public release: Yes, No, ?):

DESCRIPTION:

On last version ambiances where ordered with favorites first and that was perfect. Now they are ordered, by what I think, by the date they were added on the system.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:

  1. look at top menu or ambiances in settings

EXPECTED RESULT:

Ambainces should show favorites first

I’d add to this that it always seemed odd to me that non-favourited ambiences were included in the top menu at all. If you don’t ‘favourite’ the ambience, you aren’t planning to use it very often, so it doesn’t need to be easily selectable. Leaving the non-favourited ambiences out could possibly also save a little bit of memory. Perhaps that strange behaviour could be fixed alongside this bug.

You have a point, and so I made this over lunch break:

I think that this is definitely a bug/regression compared to the former SFOS version. What I noticed now is that all ambiences appears in the top menu. You can scroll horizontally through all ambiences … not sure if this was possible before. Maybe this bug was introduced while changing the concept of the ambiences management?

I can confirm that 4.0 does not have this issue, all Ambiences are available, but favorites are sorted first. 4.1 has “non-obvious” sorting.

Hi.
Now that I upgraded to 4.1.0.24 and I discovered this bug with the ambiances, I wanted to try your patch but… did you mark it “Compatible: 4.0.1.48” ?

I did, and cannot mark it for 4.1 as patchmanager doesn’t have that option yet.

I did test 4.1 though, so you’ll have to force-apply for now.

This is still the same for me on Xperia 10 II and version 4.2.0.19
