    Post Anybody with project Fi got their bootloader unlocked or otherwise?

    Probably everyone resolved this already, but in my experience Pixel 3s from Google all come with OEM unlocking turned off and grayed out (ie can't be unlocked), at least initially, then during setup, something is downloaded or something is queried that makes the option selectable. I had 3 of...

    Post After unlocking bootloader can I restore stock, relock and have Safety Net work

    Thanks so much for trying that out for me. Two other quick questions: 1) did the bootloader stop complaining about boot verification after relocking 2) under play store->hamburger->settings, at the bottom does it say Device certification - Certified? Thank you very much.

    Post Moto X4 Models (NO Bootloader Unlocking)

    That is just the default warranty if you don't have a purchase receipt. They take the manufacture data and add like 2 months grace period to get the phone sold, then 12mo from there. If you bought the phone in May, you'll have 12mo from purchase date. They'll probably ask you to provide proof...

    Based on your personal experience with doing that on an X4 or based on your understanding of how it should work? That's the way it has worked on other platforms I've used, but I've seen a couple of posts where people say that isn't the case here. They say you still get a warning message on...

    Post After unlocking bootloader can I restore stock, relock and have Safety Net work

    I don't think signed images is necessarily the issue. Even if the images released so far weren't signed (which I haven't verified is the case signed or unsinged), by the time you apply an OTA, they would be signed. Otherwise, it would be impossible for the stock (never bootloader unlocked)...

    Post Official OTA Files - Android One XT1900-1 Only

    I recall in the past on Nexus, except for the full version updates, the incremental updates were specifically targetted to whatever source version you had installed. For example If the new version was 8.0 release 3 and there were some people on 8.0 release 1 and other people were on 8.0...

    Thread After unlocking bootloader can I restore stock, relock and have Safety Net work

    In the FAQ thread it was stated that once you unlock the bootloader you can NOT completely return to a pre-unlocked state. Coming from Nexus, I usually unlock my bootloader and leave it that way, just in case I do something stupid and bootloop the phone. I run everything stock, except for...

    Post 5x hardware bootloop cause / fix ?

    If you could even flash the factory images, then it is likely you didn't have hardware bootloop in the first place. If you want TWRP to stick, you need to install root (which modifiies the boot image) or modified boot image.

    If you have the hardware bootloop, it cannot be fixed using unbrick method. If you have software bootloop it can.

    Post Nexus 5X stuck at Google Screen. Won't boot stock recovery.

    It has pretty much been confirmed that there are issues with the CPU and/or eMMC solder joints developing micro-fractures over repeated heat/cool cycles. Many folks have had success putting phone in ziplock bag and sticking in freezer for 10minutes. Leave the USB cable plugged in and stringing...

    Factory reset and set it up with new google account with no additional apps installed. See if it is still happening. If so, maybe it is hardware. If not, then it is software and you need to figure out which. I used to get something like that after upgrading to 7.1 but then I updated the...

    Post [FIX] Touchscreen freeze / dead zone(s) after MHC19J

    You can remove TWRP. There is no kernel patch. Touchscreen firmware is loaded directly into touchscreen processor, which has separate storage from the OS and is unaffected by flashing ROMs (unless the new ROM comes with newer touchscreen firmware) I'll check if the latest OS releases have the...

    Post 5x hardware bootloop cause / fix ?

    To fix these things for real, they probably need to figure out what went wrong with manufacturing and do a manufacturing design change. It is much cheaper to just give your money back. Even the parts they are using for repairs probably suffer from the same problem. LG cannot reball using...

    Post N5X stuck with Device Corrupted screen after sideloading 7.1.1 DP2 OTA

    Post how to know if the nexus 5x will bootloop help me

    Look at back of phone. If it says LG it will bootloop. On a serious note, it happens with 791 and 790. The most you can do is keep the phone cool and don't run the CPUs all the time. Heat/Cool/Heat/Cool causes expansion and contraction, adding stress on the weakened solder joints.

    Post Android 7.0 OTA Installation Problem

    Actually most of the time if you just have custom recovery it will install. If you have modified boot, system, vendor then the partial OTA won't install. If you got a FULL OTA (as in when you sign up for the beta releases) then it will install even with modified boot, system, vendor.

    Post Disable Big Cores on Nexus 5X to get out of bootloop?

    The details are actually important. For example if the 32GB MB is still in stock and you send in the phone, they might make you wait 2 weeks then send the phone back repaired (or not repaired making you do a 2nd round) If on the other hand you know your service center is out of 16GB MB then...

    I am also guessing that if you open up the unit and fashion some sort of shunt from cardboard box then use non-conductive tape to tape ontop of cpu and memory chip so that when you put the phone back together, pressure is applied to the chips, you can probably get it working for a while, at...

    Post 5x hardware bootloop cause / fix ?

    It is not difficult to diagnose if you know what you are doing, but because it is surface mount SMT FBGA packaging it isn't something you can fix with soldering iron. There are lots of solder "balls" under the chip. Looks something like this: http://www.lapis-semi.com/en/package/fbga.html...

    Post Nexus 5x boot loop issues shoud i be worried that mine will do the same ?

    It is solder not weld. Only Google/LG know how widespread the problem is on 5x. My guess is it is far more than normally expected for phones but nowhere near as prevalent as posts on forums might make it seem. So normally you might expect .01% of these types of solder problems. If the...

    Thanks for confirming. IMO for this phone sometimes it will be the CPU (marked in red in the pic) and sometimes the eMMC (marked in orange) This is based on different symptoms for the bootloop problem. Some phones will just go into qualcomm loader mode which is probably the CPU solder joints...

    Post probleme responsive screen nexus 5x

    There is nothing wrong with your phone. The stock charger is putting out too much noise interfering with the touchscreen algorithms. If you ask nicely google/lg will send you a new charger. There are some big threads about it from many months ago. YMMV on the new charger.

    I didn't go back and read a lot of context into what you guys were discussing, but if the question was whether disabling dm-verity would help system-based root, it would IMO be a requirement (but not guarantee) for system-based root to work. The reason is in Android N they added reed-solomon...
