    Post [ROM][OFFICIAL] Lineage OS 18.1 for Pixel 2 / 2 XL

    On my 2XL I have a pattern to unlock my phone. When I fastboot into TWRP, I am asked for my unlock pattern which then allows TWRP to decrypt and work with my phone’s file system.

    Post Question Google Play Services

    On my S21U looking at a week’s battery usage, Google Play Services has used .7 to 1.4% per day with daily background usage varying between 11 and 23 hours. Active usage is consistently zero every day though. So I am not seeing any battery issues from Google Play Services. How does this compare...

    Post Any way to eliminate Google’s unlocked bootloader on screen warning message?

    I have a 2013 Google Nexus 7 with an unlocked bootloader and the only "warning" is the appearance of an open padlock at the bottom of the boot screen. Following this the Google legal department must have decided that the current warning message was needed to protect Google from potential...

    My two and a half year old 2XL is working well with this LOS 18.1 ROM. The Google Maps app appears to be working perfectly. The only issue I have is a warning message after booting up telling me that the settings app has closed, which I ignore and click OK to. Every app I open works as...

    I have a Pixel 2 XL running LOS 18.1 (Android 11) rooted with Magisk which is working well. I ran your script to disable DM-Verity attempting to eliminate the Google warning message that’s now always displayed at boot once the bootloader is unlocked. The script appeared to run successfully, but...

    Using the Universal DM-Verity, ForceEncrypt, Disk Quota Disabler, which I found in an XDA forum, I disabled DM-Verity, but the Google boot up warning message is still displayed whenever the phone boots up. Either the script didn’t work or the warning message is not DM-Verity dependent. Any...

    Thread Any way to eliminate Google’s unlocked bootloader on screen warning message?

    Does anyone know if there’s any way to eliminate the Google warning message that pops up every time you boot up a Pixel phone once you have unlocked the phone’s bootloader? I just saw instructions for doing this on a Samsung phone and I’m just wondering if it’s also possible on my Pixel 2 XL.

    Post Question Black Screen of Death? 2 Month old S21 Ultra 512gb

    Try to boot into boot loader mode to see if the screen works before the operating system loads. With the phone off, hold volume up depressed and then press and hold the power button. You should see the phone turn on and display several boot options you can select and choose with the volume and...

    Post Question Oem unlock option not available

    Yeah, you didn’t buy an unlocked phone, not tied to a vendor such as T-Mobile or Verizon. They sell you the phone at a discount with a contract to use it strictly with their network so of course you can’t unlock the boot loader.

    Post Question The phone is great but a little heavy?

    A high performance processor, optical zoom lenses, 6.8 inch screen all requiring the use of a 5000 mah battery. There’s no way this phone could have been made much lighter with the features included, unless its battery life sucked.

    Since we are talking about a top of the line phone, the AOD features and options should be top of the line too. Currently, you can select AOD Always On or Scheduled or Tap To Display. The option to Schedule and Tap To Display AOD should both be available simultaneously not either or. Samsung...

    Post Question Always on display doesn't turn off when the phone is on it is face or the sensors are covered

    This is my first Samsung phone and I am disappointed to learn that Samsung is dropping the ball with this issue. For their top phone, they should provide AOD options to vary font size, have the screen go off when face down or in a case, etc. Instead, they provide an option to place an energy...

    Post Question Always on display doesn't turn off when the phone is on it is face or the sensors are covered

    Wow, you got your AOD power consumption down to 3%! The first week I had my S21U, AOD was using 25 to 30% daily I believe. Can you please tell me what you tweaked to get your phone’s AOD power consumption so low? That’s better than on my Pixel 2xl.

    Post Question Always on display doesn't turn off when the phone is on it is face or the sensors are covered

    Once I disabled full time AOD my S21U, battery life is no longer an issue. As I stated previously, I would like to see a Samsung software update making their AOD perform similar to the way it does on a Pixel 2XL.

    Post Question Always on display doesn't turn off when the phone is on it is face or the sensors are covered

    When I first got my S21 Ultra I set AOD to always on and battery life suffered greatly compared to my previous 2XL. The S21 Ultra doesn’t have an SD card slot either, which has nothing to do with my comments about AOD performance between the 2XL and the S21 Ultra. You are correct, it’s great...

    Post Question Always on display doesn't turn off when the phone is on it is face or the sensors are covered

    My previous phone, a Pixel 2XL, I had set to AOD always on. The phone would turn the display off when face down and even when in a holster on my hip. At night it would stay on all night as a night light/clock right next to my bed and my charger would come on via timer an hour before I would get...

    Post Question Always on display doesn't turn off when the phone is on it is face or the sensors are covered

    It would be nice if Samsung let you choose more than one AOD option. It would be great if you could both schedule AOD on hours plus enable tap to display for 10 seconds.

    Post Won't Connect to Pc?!

    This seems to be a frequent problem with our almost eight year old N7s. There is a ribbon cable connector on the motherboard, the top board inside the tablet, which is prone to lose connectivity over time.

The ribbon cable involved carries USB data, battery charging current, screen...

    It’s pretty funny, I had given up and I was going to put the tablet in the e-recycling bin in town here when I happened to accidentally press on just the right spot on the back of my N7 and I got a touch response. So I took out the ribbon cable and cleaned the conductors and the MB connector...

    I’m not that familiar with the flo version of N7, which are you having this problem with, deb or flo? On my Deb, there’s a wide ribbon cable for charging, SIM card and screen touch support and USB port data transfers. The flo version of this cable is narrower. If you remove the back cover from...

    I have a Nexus 7 Deb 2013 with a similar problem. I have traced the problem down to the internal connector on the motherboard where the ribbon cable coming from the daughter board connects to the motherboard. Only if I apply pressure on this connector, does my PC recognize the Nexus 7. The back...

The one thing I’ve learned is that there’s a lack of documentation available for kernel managers. I’ve been browsing relevant XDA forums and I have found some useful info.
