    Post [APP][MOD][ROOT/NONROOT] YouTube Vanced Edition

    Anyone tried the most recent non-root release? I seem to recall that the login bug was "fixed" in the previous release, but I see in the newest release notes that it's being listed as "finally fixed." Anyone know if it's *actually* fixed, or should I just stay on MicroG 0.2.16.204713 and YT...

    Post [APP][MOD][ROOT/NONROOT] YouTube Vanced Edition

    Yep, that's exactly why I'm asking. Shall I take it from your response that there are indeed issues and I should remain on the versions that I'm currently using? Well now I'm confused -- you responded with this to my post. Does the 100% mean sit tight, or go ahead and update?

    This is my current non-root setup. I'm not having any real issues, but I do know the new versions are out. Are people having problems with them? Should I just continue to sit tight for now?

    Post [APP][MOD][ROOT/NONROOT] YouTube Vanced Edition

    Back a while ago there were a good number of reports about YouTube just force-overwriting the root version which then made for a lot of hassles trying to work around it. I'm not talking about accidentally updating it either, I'm talking about it being force-updated. I had it happen more than...

    Post [APP][MOD][ROOT/NONROOT] YouTube Vanced Edition

    Yes, as some of you have pointed out, this recommendation is for those using the non-root method. Based on my previous experiences with the rooted versions, they were significantly more prone to breaking, either by new YouTube releases, or other issues. Resolving those problems was also much...

    Just checking to see if this is still your opinion of these apps. As I understand it, OAndBackupX has been actively developed right along. Just wondering if it's a Swift Backup competitor / on par at this point. EDIT: Never mind - the XDA page for the app is telling enough. Seems like it's...

    Hi there, I've been having issues with my Pixel 2 XL somehow becoming corrupted while mid-use. I'm still on Android 9.0 where I can still make customary nandroid backups and restore them fully to bring me back exactly to a point in time without any additional setup required. My phone just...

    The symptoms have been the same both times. For no discernable reason, suddenly my apps start malfunctioning and won't let me use them while I'm in the unlocked system. When I lock the screen or reboot, it goes to the lockscreen as normal but won't let me unlock using my pincode. I boot into...

    I just added that step. While it did seem to prevent Magisk Manager from reappearing, once I reflashed Magisk in TWRP, and reinstalled Magisk Manager, Hiding Magisk Manager still doesn't work. It just clocks forever and creates another app called Magisk in addition to Magisk Manager.

    I appreciate all the info. To clarify, on a few things: 1. I only use stock android - no ROMs (they always seem to be more trouble than they're worth with the stuff they end up breaking) 2. I don't want to restore the system when I update. My plan was to download the most recent Android 10...

    Post TWRP 3.2.3-1 for Pixel 2 XL

    So I read a bit more. Seems like 3.4.0-1 works for most of what I need. I'm gathering that it decrypts Android 10, installs zips, wipes, etc. As I understand it the one "shortcoming" (if you can even call it that) is that it doesn't allow one to backup the system. The thing is I guess I'm...

    Hi all, I'm still back on Android 9 with my Pixel 2 XL b/c of concerns about TWRP not functioning properly. It seems like what I'm reading in this thread is that 3.4.0-1 actually does decrypt Android 10 as normal. Is that correct? Does backup and restore work (with fingerprint and password...

    Interesting. That's similar to the behavior I experience with Schwab. Just tells me I have the wrong ID or password. I do have AdAway, but I've tested Schwab when AdAway is disabled. Same result. Is it possible Schwab is looking for and detecting that AdAway is installed, even if it's not...

    Any other Schwab Bank users get the app working again? All my other CC and banking apps still work properly, but Schwab constantly throws me an error and won't let me log in. I assume they've found a way to detect root that the others haven't yet adopted. Been like this for a few months now.

    I'm pretty sure that Schwab Mobile is detecting root for me. The app runs but tells me my username or password is incorrect when I enter it. I confirmed that it's actually working properly, so I have to assume that's what it is. I've done some troubleshooting, but can't get it resolved. Anyone...

    Getting notified by the app that 2.20 is available, but I don't see it on the website. Probably being overly cautious, but I just wanted to make sure that 2.20 release for the Pixel 2 XL is actually correct, and that the app isn't looking at a release for the Pixel 3 or something like that.

    Post [MODULE] Smali Patcher 7.3

    That's good to know. Any suggestions on making sure they're the most accurate? My thoughts are maybe apps that specify random movement in an area, or ones that allow you to specify the interval between reporting location -- presumably, more frequent location reporting, and relatively small...
