Known issues

Regarding adoptable storage

If you have it configured it will in some common configurations cause issues with the OTA (the updates cannot be verified and installed).

The Developer Preview is a preview of P and is under active development and it is expected that there will be issues like this. We are currently looking into if there is anything simple we can do in the area but it might not be possible.

At this time, due to these issues, we strongly recommend that you turn off Adoptable Storage. If we find a working solution that can be implemented with a reasonable effort we will update the recommendation.
