    Post [KERNEL] [September 8] Pixel 2 XL ElementalX 4.07 (Android 11)

    flar2 Do you think you'll get a Pixel 4? To all: I haven't been able to use this kernel in a while. However, does it fix the ability to use Google Pay? Or, is that a lost cause? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Post Got Verizon and want WiFi Preferred for WiFi calling? I just found the way!

    I think I may have an answer for rooted phones. In October, I installed the beta of Android 9 and started tinkering with some mbn files deep in the system folders. Using a hex editor, I found a file that controlled when WiFi calling got used. Since then, I have upgraded to the RTM (January...

    Post Modify Radio and Modem IMG for VoLTE

    I have tried editing Verizon's .mbn file with a hex editor and used Magisk to replace the file at boot time to enable WiFi Preferred Calling, it doesn't work. I also took out my SIM card, activated fi, then put my SIM back in, that didn't work (with the file edited). So, if you spot something...

    Post Who's upgrading to Pixel 3 or 3XL?

    There are mods that have not been carried over from Oreo to Pie, namely, WiFi Calling > WiFi Preferred. I have decompiled almost every file that has to do with WiFi calling and found little to nothing. So, don't be ignorant, there are some mods that can't be transferred. Sent from my Pixel...

    Verizon was supposed to get the rebuttal to the FCC last week, I still have yet to hear from the FCC. This could be great news. Verizon has no reason other than 'it's a corporate policy' to block WiFi Preferred calling. I'm not sure how the fcc will take that but it sounds like a big f-u to...

    Just looked.. It doesn't look like there are any differences. The problem here is that when we were on Oreo, we still had the ability to do Wifi Preferred.
