Well, not exactly crash, but it seems like the compositor straight out ignores the alpha layer, but it doesn’t block the user input, at least for Tint Overlay.

Luckily the pulley menus give haptic feedback, so closing tintoverlay is not a big problem.

This is very-very sad :frowning_face:

Please uninstall all my overlay applications before upgrading to 3.4

Update Aliendalvik Control to 9.3.0-2 or later before upgrading to 3.4, removed onehand control helper

Thanks for the prompt fixes, highly appreciated

Unfortunately, I already updated and am not able to enter GUI again.
During the update process a message appeared like ‘Something went wrong, please try again later. REBOOT’.
After reboot, I have no GUI (only some kind of flickering white/black a few times).
ssh and devel-su into the phone are working.

Is there a list of potential overlay applications? Any suggestions?


pkcon refresh

version --dup

EDIT:
I solved it with ‘pkcon update; version --dup’
Now I am back at version 3.3.0.16 and give the upgrade another try.

Phonehook causes this blackout as well.

Update failed.
Reboot and flashing white screen.
“pkcon update” was enough for my XA2+ finished the update and as soon as the required packages installed the screen came up.

Thanks.
