    Thread Disabling / removing safetynet entirely

    Apologies if there is another thread dedicated to the topic, but I couldn't find one after some extensive searching. I've been reading up on Google's "SafetyNet" and quite frankly, it's not something I'm comfortable having on my device. I'm sure I'm not alone on this one. Since my device can...

    Thread ROM Devs: fix GPS for all users by pointing NTP to localhost

    To all the Note 3 rom devs/maintainers out there, there still seems to be a lot of people suffering from GPS lock failures. There are in fact two unrelated issues - 1. Maps API does not properly trigger the hardware GPS (or causes it to reset during navigation) (issue resolved by Google as of...

    Thread Thoughts on Doze and its effect on safety applications

    I wanted to start this thread to discuss Doze and its impact on reliability, primarily on safety applications. I'd like to start with a general statement: the days of our devices being merely telephones are long behind us. We still call them cell phones, but as we - especially here - know, our...

    Hey everyone, Version 2.0.0 released! This version introduces performance tuning, power management control, and an optional MMC I/O queue extension/timing change. For those of you who have seen reboots / black screens that seem to be caused by Seeder, I suspect it may be due to the power...

    Thread [Q] GPS issues - check-in

    Hey guys, Ever since the ICS update, my GPS has been failing to lock, even when 10+ satellites are visible (according to various GPS utilities). I've tried all the GPS fixes (external_lna = 0, updating certificates, switching to non-ssl, adding time servers, AGPS reset/download, etc). I'm...

    Thread [Solved] Force close of phone app after ICS upgrade

    Hey guys, I figured out what was causing the phone app force close (after phone calls) for some users. After an in-place GB->ICS upgrade (maintaining existing data), there is a column missing from the contact logs DB (something to do with pinyin / Chinese input). You can see it by grepping...

    Success! Ladies and gentlemen, we are in business! :good: I've rebuilt ICS from the 4.0.4 + Samsung patch tree, with the a2dp max bitpool set to a more appropriate 64. For the first time ever, let your Glide sound the way it should over bluetooth! :) Updated library (and source patch)...

    Thread Requesting powermat for our devices

    Hey everyone, Even back in my n900 days I so wanted a Powermat. Now that I've got a (what could be) somewhat popular device, I was hoping they'd make one for it. Anyone else interested, or am I alone in this? If there are enough of us, I suggest we all send emails to them requesting that...

    Thread [Q] Help with KIES emergency recovery

    Hey guys, I've been working on rooting the new Captivate Glide, and unfortunately my kernel flash with ODIN failed (inexplicably). Now the device is complaining I need to perform an emergency recovery, but of course the device isn't listed in the KIES panel. Apologies if this is covered...

    Thread Full-screen notification list (like palmos) for WM?

    Has anyone ever heard of such a thing? I've googled around and searched through xda-developers, and doesn't seem it exists. (for those not familiar with it) - On Palm OS if there is more than one event in the stack, it pops up a fullscreen list of all outstanding notifications (ie. battery...
