    Post [HOW-TO] Install Android x86 on any media ! [OPTIMA-TEAM]

    My computer doesn't have a BOIS setup, but it does have a BIOS setup; regardless, I should've mentioned that my windows is running in UEFI mode, secure boot is off (not supported in the first place), and windows is on a GPT partition style, so it shows up on BIOS as windows boot loader; when I...

    In the end I uninstalled McAfee for my phone, and when I went to set my phone to max power saving mode, instead of 10 hours of battery life, it jumped up to about 3 days worth of battery and the Wi-Fi stopped turning itself off. Means that McAfee's new update is eating more power than it has...
