    Post TWRP 3.2.3-1 for Pixel Devices

    I had a similar issue when I flashed the new 3.1.1.1 zip from fastboot booted 3.1.1.1 over the October release with a custom kernel. I had to simply reflash my kernel to boot into android, and this did not wipe away the flashed TWRP. This non-booting should not happen if you were on the stock...

    I'd suggest that if you can get your head around the gapps-config concept, you do that method rather than using an apk you extracted, as it is a solution that will propogate automatically when you update or clean flash (assuming the gapps-config file is still present in the location of the gapps...

    Using the standard Nexus adapter I got with the phone, I get a maximum of 1100mA as per the "Ampere" app. Over USB with fastcharge turned on in FkU, I get a maximum of 600mA from a USB3.0 port on my Dell laptop. But it would depend on the source and possibly the cable too. Old cables in my...

    Good news is that the google setup process does receive the 2fa code via SMS even without an SMS app, so that's not an issue. But to install the app from TWRP, I'd recommend copying the apk to the /system partition since you already have the apk on your sdcard. 1. In TWRP make sure system is...

    Sure, now that I know Slim7 doesn't have an SMS app in /system, I will be doing just that. And hopefully others who have read this conversation here. But since receiving SMSes is one of the primary uses of the phone, it's a cleaner solution if the software ensures such a loss of service doesn't...

    Yeah I agree, I haven't used the aosp/default one ever since Google put theirs in the play store.

    I finally got around to wiping my phone and switching to slim7. Flashed beta 0.9 with the 20170202 opengapps micro, and looks like there is no SMS messaging app installed in /system. Is this likely a gapps error, where it wiped out the app while flashing itself, or is it not included in slim7...

    As far as I know you are right in that the N5 doesn't have (or doesn't use?) a low power sensor core/cluster in the SD800. The DT2W issue however is unrelated, that issue is because of how the display/touchscreen power connections are wired up. ie they are powered together, not separately.

    You can't push directly to /system. Push files to either /tmp or /sdcard and then run 'adb shell', su, mount system as rw, then move them over to the right place.

    The easiest/cleanest would be to flash an sbf back to moto stock, root, install 2ndinit recovery, flash 2.6.3.0 recovery, then flash slim. Also you'd have to repartition your sdcard back to regular I suppose.

    Yep that's what I had meant when I said one needs to fully unroot the ROM first. I haven't tried any custom ROMs based on 6.0/x yet, so wasn't aware of the unSu.zip :) I'll keep a copy of that zip for when I do flash slim6 when yank gets around to it :p

    You can get the gapps package to place it in /data, just like you are doing manually now. That way no need to look for the en-gb version in the format that's placed on /system.

    Reliability and functionality is the same as system based ones, it's just simpler to root using systemless on 6.0+ Stock, because using the system based one would still necessitate modifying boot image, that too manually (probably, I haven't seen any automated scripts for it). So might as well...

    Post Android Builders Collective - [Learn][Build][Share]

    Systemless just modifies the boot image, so it shouldn't need anything special since it's designed to modify the stock boot images. That's assuming none of your kernel additions hamper that process :P One would just have to fully unroot the ROM first I think.
