Since the last update the other half don´t work anymore on my phone. When I attached it nothing happens. The ambience doesn't change. Has anybody the same Problem?

I think this is intended behavior, in the release notes for it says:

On connecting the Other Half, associated ambience will not change unless it is being used for the first time or the ambiance has been earlier marked as favourite.

The Snow White ambience is one of my favorite. So it should switch to it when i attach the white TOH, but nothing happens

I tried my TOH LE for the first time today and nothing happened. Am I supposed to change the other half when the phone is on or off? Maybe it doesn't matter but I tried both ways.

@Charly okay if it is favorite this actually seems to be a bug

is there a way to trigger my jolla to read the tag on the other half. i think that maybe the switch dont work anymor

Make sure you've removed the workarounds (e.g. masking tohd.service)

@paperboy change it while the phone is on. You might need to do it few times before the phone recognizes TOH and starts to install the ambience.

Today I get my Aloe and Black The Other Half. Both work fine. So i try my original white one and it works. So this couldn't be reproduced anymore.

Yea I also noticed this bahaviour today. I also got my Aloe TOH today. I always had the problem that my ambience won't change by de- and re-attatching my white TOH. But after I attached and installed my Aloe TOH it will change the ambience each time - even with the white one.
