    Post Worth it to upgrade from Android 10 Sept 2020 to Android 11 right now or wait?

    Does using Magisk to dl / install the OTA, then patch the non-live and newly flashed partition, then finally rebooting not work? When I was rooted that was always the easiest way. And based upon the post 2 above this one, Magisk now supports A11 without ẞeta, right? From Coral, with Tapatalk.

    Post Google extends warranty for power related issues

    While I haven't had any power issues (yet), and I've waterbed the daily life is Mr battery by making heavy use of focus mode, this is still good news. From Coral, with Tapatalk.

    Post Worth it to upgrade from Android 10 Sept 2020 to Android 11 right now or wait?

    I'm not rooted, but I've been running R since the first public ßeta. It's been the smallest update so far in a long time for Android. Very little has changed, compared to previous major version upgrades. If you can root (and from what I read i think you can with Magisk), make a full backup...

    I don't see the flickering on my device. Yes to using dark mode, force dark mode, enabling 90 Hzv display (no more force), and playing a couple games at well as watching videos, reading news... It never shows. Or else I am not recognizing it - and I'm pretty sure I know what flickering...

    OK, so I'm late to the party. I only found out about this (well, was reminded about it) last week. I have a Taimen Running Android 11 DP 2.1, so I'm not gonna fool with that, yet. Maybe later. My Coral, though, is in dire need for a clean install of the OS, and I figure - why not, might as...

    I've moved to the Coral, but I haven't sold my Taimen, and don't plan to anytime soon. It's a great backup, especially since I am on Fi - eSIM FTW! I'd at least wait until the prices drop on the P4 line. I have my phone financed through Fi, no interest, and $100 Fi credit coming soon which...

    Agreed. The more I go out to locations within the city, the more surveys it sends me. It especially likes sending me surveys when I make a purchase from a retail location (and I always decline uploading my receipts because paranoia).

    Traitor! ;) j/k - I've decided to hand on to my Taimen for a while, at least - I like having my old devices for various reason, including nostalgia, and making other useful devices out of them.... I'm converting my Shamu, for example, into a n on-demand music player to give to my mom for use...

    A while back, there was mention that DarQ dev was going to see about possibly making the app auto apply force Dark Mode enabled at boot (thereby avoiding having to go into the app / DevOps to force dark mode on). I've since retired my Taimen for a Coral, which is *not* rooted - not yet, anyway...

    Yeah, the Fast charging I was referring to the phone. Not the charger. It definitely doesn't officially have EPP. I'm trying to figure out if there is a way I can verify what power is actually being supplied to the phone a week as being used by the phone to wirelessly charge. As soon as I...

    Post Pixel 4 Wireless Chargers Compatible at 10w

    I've received the 3 I ordered of this product. After doing some research, I noticed something. The Fast Charging uses the EPP (Extended Power Profile) for the full 11 W delivery. However, if you look at the embossed metal info plat on the back, it says that, if a 9V charger is used, the puck...

    Seidio had several listed for the P4s as well. Including a few that also offer wireless charging. Sadly, the 10kmAh with a flashlight does wireless but only at 5W, not the full 10W the P4s can handle. But they may have another one that offers full 10W wireless charging. I asked by the contact...
