    Thread Systemless Root on Ulefone Armor 10 5G: How I did it...

    I'm pleased to report I've successfully done systemless root with MAGISK on the Ulefone Armor 10 5G. Turns out the process is nearly identical to the Armor 8. My thanks to all contributors to this thread and this one. Here's what worked for me, developed with pieces culled from both. WHAT...

    Thread Rooting Ulefone Armor 10 5G - Help needed

    Fellow techies, I just got my new Ulefone Armor 10 5G. Terrific phone, but (of course) I want to root it, ideally with a systemless technique (a la Magisk and a patched boot.img file). However, I'm not having a lot of luck. I've tried following the process described here...

    Well, in the words of Gomez Addams -- "Now you've done it!" :P Here's what happened. My V20 was running just fine, rooted, with TWRP, on H91810k.

    Thread [Q] Springboard system sounds: Where?

    I'd like to replace the start-up chime sound on my Springboard with something a little more earthy (the default T-mobile chime Just Doesn't Cut It). With that in mind, where are the system sounds contained in the file system? More specifically, which one is that silly T-Mobile chime? Yes, I'm...
