    Post [SOLVED] How to monitor network connections in Android 12?

    Hi giostark, Thank you very much for your research! I can't believe how little information is available in the net on such an important topic. Actually I think, each OS should be able to show the user which app causes how much traffic right now, like in the Windows Task-Manager. Unfortunately...

    Post KERNEL ❯ PIXEL 5 ❯ Proton Kernel

    Guys, we are wrong - or at least I was wrong. This kernel DOES work with ProtonAOSP 12. One just has to disable verification first. See instructions here: https://divnectar.com/blog/android-guide (section VBmeta.img and Veritity) To check, if you are running Proton kernel, go to Settings -...

    Post [KERNEL] [Nov 17] Pixel 5 ElementalX

    Alright, thank you for clarification. I've just read that it wouldn't work with A12 either way. Is there a recommendable kernel (optimized for performance and battery life) for Pixel5 with A12?

    Post KERNEL ❯ PIXEL 5 ❯ Proton Kernel

    I also confirm that this kernel does not work on ProtonAOSP 12. Error: "Failed to load/verify boot images". This should be stated clearly in the description @kdrag0n.

    Post ROM ❯ PIXEL 5 ❯ OFFICIAL ❯ ProtonAOSP 11

    I installed Proton 12.4.0 via the web installer. Some questions: 1. Why is TWRP not included? In my last custom roms, TWRP was always included in the installer. I always liked it. And I'm having a hard time trying to install TWRP myself under A12. 2. Is the Proton kernel included in this rom...

    Post ROM ❯ PIXEL 5 ❯ OFFICIAL ❯ ProtonAOSP 11

    Which features of Lineage did you like, that Proton doesn't have? EDIT: Answering myself after I directly messaged Sewdohe: mainly UI reasons: black/white reading mode, extra dim mode, nav pill hideable.

    Post Galaxy S7 Free Unlock Code Through Samsung Canada Chat

    Did not work for me. They said that my IMEI is not in their system. Well, I didn't buy it there actually, but that was not explicitly stated as a prerequisite in this thread.
