    Post Tablet constantly downloading something

    Well disabling had a bit of an unwanted side effect - Google Play won't open! I'll keep looking to see what's requesting the Download Manager to download stuff, starting with disabling DeviceSoftwareOTA.

    Post Tablet constantly downloading something

    Thanks Richard. Although the app doesn't show the individual network usage, I think because it needs to be granted 'Usage Data Access' which doesn't appear to be an option on the HD10, it did show that the Amazon 'Download Manager' was chewing the most CPU time. Forced stopped that and the...

    Thread Tablet constantly downloading something

    Hi, I've just found my rooted HD10 is constantly downloading at a rate up to 20Mbit/s. It shifted 20GB overnight. . Unfortunately I have no idea what's doing it. Are there any apps that work with Fire OS which will display the network usage of apps? Ones I've found so far require an android...

    Post [TUT] ROOT HD10 (2017), HD8(2016-2017) - EASY SuperSu

    I'd set up lots including installing all of the Google services and it rooted fine using this method (from 5.6.0.1). If you run into problems then look at restarting from a factory reset.

    Post NO ROOT REQUIRED: Completely disable and enable your lock screen

    Sadly disabling the lock screen this way didn't work for me. HD 10 (7th Gen) 5.6.0.1, rooted.

    Post [Help Thread][Fire HD 8 and HD 10](7th Gen/2017) Ask Any Question, Noob Friendly

    OK, with the discussion above about Google's services potentially blocking uncertified devices, maybe I'll bring rooting up the priority list... In which case, once rooted, how would I go about adding the accounts functionality as above? Cheers :)

    Post [Help Thread][Fire HD 8 and HD 10](7th Gen/2017) Ask Any Question, Noob Friendly

    I did, but was trying to get it where I wished without going down the rooting route. Not having the accounts isn't a show-stopper, just an annoyance as I like to have multiple Gmail accounts on the device, but only sync the emails and turn off all the rest. It's only 24 hours old so I'll see how...

    Post [Help Thread][Fire HD 8 and HD 10](7th Gen/2017) Ask Any Question, Noob Friendly

    Hi, I've just received my Fire HD 10 and got Google Play working fine, along with Gmail & contacts. What I haven't been able to find is a section in the settings which manages all the accounts on the device. 'Accounts' or 'Accounts and Sync' usually lists all the accounts on the device, e.g...

    Post [APP] AppStarter v4.0 | AppDrawer and Kodi / SPMC Updater for Amazon FireTV

    You can accomplish that using a custom keymap for the Fire TV remote. http://kodi.wiki/view/Alternative_keymaps_for_Fire_TV_remote (and other Google search results) I set a longpress of the back button to take you to the Kodi home screen: <keymap> <Global> <keyboard> <browser_back...

    I believe so - this article seems to describe it. Agreed - you'd think they'd hang on to something that differentiates Android from iOS but...

    Post XCam LG v6.2.4 [G3]

    Thanks for the reply. As far as I can tell it's a one-off request for the location - certainly ES File Explorer has only asked the once and its write access over the card has remained.

    Post XCam LG v6.2.4 [G3]

    I'm on stock, unrooted Lollipop and can't root due to other app's paranoia over rooted devices so I can't use the SD Fix per the first posts. My understanding is that Lollipop re-introduced the ability for apps to write to the external SD Card again. The app needs an extra permission and it...

    Post [Q&A] [ROM][5.0.1][LOLLIPOP][i9300]RESURRECTION REMIX 5.2.1[CM12-BASED]

    Hi, this is the first ROM I've put on my S3 and I'm very impressed. Bang up to date version of Android and faster than the Samsung stock 4.3 I came from. My S3 is born again - Many thanks! Running 5.3.8 Stable from a clean install with PA GApps. Only two real issues I've come across so far: 1...
