    Post Android Pie on the XZ1C

    Well, that depends only on your type of network area coverage. E.g. if you have a good 4G coverage, your battery will last longer than if you use 2G but with bad coverage. I'd suggest keeping phone off the 3G anyways since its development is abandoned quite much everywhere now, 4G should be the...

    Just bring back support for Missed It numeric badges notification provider. Or at least mention the support drop in the update description. It's not funny at all, making changes and cut out the features that worked.

    Post extended battery, gauge fix

    Well, to reply to myself - I found it. The solution to 'fix the gauge' with extended battery is to not let it drain to 0% but instead to drain only to the low battery indicator! I used 10% remaining indicator mark (didn't tried with 15% as suggested batteryuniversity or 5% when battery saving...

    Thread extended battery, gauge fix

    I changed the battery for a new one with 3400mAh capacity and of course android gauge reporting it wrongly. How do I patch kernel manually to change default values from manufacturer's 2300 to 3rd party 3400mAh? Any ideas?

    Thread 3rd party Li-Io batt and Android gauge fix?

    How do you override the default android manufacturer info on battery capacity? E.g I'm using Xperia C5503, rooted of course. Original battery comes with 2300mAh. I've got a new fatty 3rd party 3400mAh but the Android gauge simply can't get the correct reading of the new battery capacity. I...

    And the recent version of Flyne is rather downgrade than upgrade. After very unpleasant experiences with mostly all of his good looking, shiny but payed and soon to be abandoned apps, non-responsive to all bugs and feature request, this developer just has been blacklisted by me. Scam.
