I was wondering if there is any way of restoring the theme stored in the Other Half's NFC chip. A friend of mine played with the White Other Half and his Android phone and I think he might have rewritten the tag so now nothing happens when I snap the White Other Half on the phone. The Poppy Red Other Half always works when I snap it on.

Afaik TOHs NFC chip only contains an ID which will be linked with your Jolla account and the Ambience will be loaded from the Jolla store. Maybe he brokes the pin of your TOH which makes the Jolla recognice that a TOH was attached?

yeah well, the question is if I can restore whatever was on the chip. and why is the data not locked so that noone can overwrite it?

there is no data on the toh, just an identification number, that should ne unique. When you have the TOH connected the ID of it should show up in settings -> about this device.

so the id might have changed then, when your friend was fooling around with it. Jolla should know what ID:s are assigned to your jolla account, ask for that information. And then check witch one of them you dont have on you tohs anymore and try to change it back.

hmm Jolla account page should list your tohs, now theres a new feature request. Or maybe it lists already? I dont have time to check that now.

Another solution might be that jolla gives you a new toh id that you assign to your toh.

I just checked my account. It only lists the IMEI of the phone but not the ID of TOH. I will write to them and see if they can help

AFAIK, the ambience is modified if and only if the one matching the newly plugged Other Half is in the favorite ones.

If not already there, add the White ambience to you favorites and it should work again.
