    Thread Black version of stock boot animation?

    Hello there! Is there a black version of the stock boot animation? It is quite blinding for me, especially in darkened rooms. A black version would be better for the eyes and it'll fit nicely with this: https://forum.xda-developers.com/mi-a1/themes/mod-custom-boot-logo-elegant-t3800498 There...

    Post Is it still a good idea to update Android to the newest version?

    When Nougat was released. some users reported shutdowns before 0% charge was indicated and for Oreo, BLODs. Note that in both cases, the hardware issues appeared post-update. It may be possible that the software triggered hardware problems. Additionally, when I meant that fixes required...

    Thread Is it still a good idea to update Android to the newest version?

    I originally bought the Nexus 6P because of the fast updates and the greater degree of customization than many other device lines. However, the Nougat and now the Oreo updates are beset by hardware issues that occur after installation. Even when there are fixes, these usually end up compromising...

    Post Request for development of other operating systems

    Spurring other OS development To help kickstart bringing other OSes to the Nexus 6P, I've made an initial port of Halium for future ports of non-Android Linux distributions to build upon. Ignore this; this is an accidental double post.

    Post Halium port for Nexus 6P

    My involvement with the project, my role, and the question of thread categorization 1. No, I'm not a dev on the original project.

    Post What do We Need?

    Porting Plasma Mobile You don't really need to port Ubuntu Touch per se to get a Plasma Mobile port working. Just getting an Ubuntu 16.04 rootfs working should suffice for a base to build on. Additionally, porting Halium components should be enough to get the ball rolling. I was working on a...

    Post Request for development of other operating systems

    On the (probable) end of Ubuntu Touch Despite various users and developers planning on continuing UT to some extent, for now it seems that Ubuntu Touch is essentially dead. What would you want in place of Ubuntu Touch? Update: Ubuntu Touch lives on in the form of UBports, a community fork of...

    Post Request for development of other operating systems

    Plasma Mobile and Ubuntu Touch Plasma Mobile is no longer based on Ubuntu Touch proper. It uses a customized Ubuntu container, but it's not the one from UT. It's (as if time of posting) using an AOSP/LineageOS core as a base. However, it doesn't use ART or Dalvik; this is what makes it a...

    Post Request for development of other operating systems

    MIUI is Android This thread is for requesting ports of non-Android OSes to the Nexus 6P. MIUI is a heavily skinned distribution of Android, hence it doesn't belong here. Please discuss about it in a more appropriate thread. :D

    Thread Giving a computer ADB debug permissions from CLI

    Hi! I'm testing a port for someone, but I can't use ADB for debugging since debugging seems to be disabled error: insufficient permissions for device. The ROM is bootlooping, so I can't figure out what's going on. What can be done?

    Post Request for development of other operating systems

    Ubuntu Touch Canonical support It seems that they're holding off until the new Snap-based system is fully in place. Until then, it'll probably stay in maintenance mode. Maybe go see Plasma Mobile? :D
