    That's great news! Also, that chargie usb thing I told you about a while ago, I received the item and have used it for a few days. It works well and the app has an auto plugin detector. But I still prefer having the software control because it would be a hassle to carry that usb everywhere I go...

    @mindyabiznis So I updated my phone to the May update and looked for charging switches. Despite what I told you previously, don't trust what the terminal tells you when you do "acc -t". What I found was that ElementalX kernel v1.07 and Cleanslate kernel v1.8.1 adds a charging switch called...

    Post Activate Volte om Pixel 4XL - Android 11 R

    Even if someone does get a hold of your device, I don't think it will be easy to retrieve files. The internal storage is encrypted so cable transfer requires the phone to be unlocked and TWRP requires data format.

    Some do, some don't. Best thing is to ask the developer of the ROM first, but I wouldn't risk it at all. You can permanently brick your device by locking bootloader if the ROM doesn't support it.

    Zest kernel img only contains the executables to patch the kernel which is why you have to "fastboot boot", not "fastboot flash". Containing only executables means it doesn't have the actual "bootable" code on it to boot the phone. This means, you have to: First, flash a stock...

    For me, it only works if I have the app installed without the magisk module. Once I install the ACC module from magisk manager, it stops working. So you must uninstall the ACC magisk module and only have the app installed.

    Hey @tbalden, Do you think you could implement "Bypass Charging" (or Battery Idle Mode) into the kernel? This means the phone will draw power directly from the power cable instead of the battery. I think it's a very good feature to have for extra longevity of the battery. Asus ROG 3 does this...

    It's not possible to do this without root. You need root to change some device settings to open a Diag Port, which is the bridge to the EFS Partition. This can only be done if you have root.

    it could be that your carrier has a set list of "allowed" device models. (can also definitely be a problem with my module too). My carrier is Vodafone NZ and I tried using other vodafone mbn files like UK and Germany but I still can't get IMS registered too. I'll keep trying to make it work, though.
