    Post **What phone should I buy next?** -- Not sure what device to buy? Ask here!

    Thanks for the suggestion. I've had a look and it certainly looks interesting. It does have some drawbacks though: * No NFC. I forgot to list this in my requirements; I don't use NFC that often but don't want to lose it in case I ever need it. * Most of my recent phones had AMOLED displays, so...

    Post **What phone should I buy next?** -- Not sure what device to buy? Ask here!

    What phone to replace OnePlus 3T? I've been the happy owner of a OnePlus 3T 64GB for the past 2.5 years. Unfortunately last week the display of my 3T cracked (although still functional for now). My company will not pay for repair, but will reimburse up to the equivalent of USD 350 for a new...

    Post [Script] [EMUI] Disable/re-enable swap on honor 5X KIW-L24 (USA)

    Thanks for your detailed explanation about this. As a programmer, I tend to believe what I see in code, rather than what someone is telling me. But apparently, in this case the code is misleading, in particular the comment saying that ZRAM is only enabled on devices with less than 1GB of RAM...

    Post [Script] [EMUI] Disable/re-enable swap on honor 5X KIW-L24 (USA)

    Not on my device (KIW-L21 with stock B130 ROM). On my device, the init.qcom.zram.sh (see attached) enables zram for devices with less than 1GB of RAM, and runs /system/bin/enable_swap for devices with more RAM. So in my case your script disables swap, not zram (zram will still be disabled though...

    Post [Script] [EMUI] Disable/re-enable swap on honor 5X KIW-L24 (USA)

    I don't know the details, but apparently there's a difference between zram and swap. I guess with zram all memory will be compressed, whereas with swap only the in-memory swap area will be compressed. According to the script, zram will be enabled for devices with less than 1GB of total RAM. For...

    Post **What phone should I buy next?** -- Not sure what device to buy? Ask here!

    Looking for dual-SIM LTE phone with recent Android version Hi all, I'm currently using a Moto X 2014 with a mobile subscription from my employer. Since my employer's subscription only allows limited data and no 4G, I'm thinking about adding a cheap personal 4G subscription. As such I'm looking...

    Thread [Q] Custom PIN Lock Screen Widget

    Hi all, I'm running CM11 Nightly (20140107) on my GT-I9195 (S4 Mini). I'm required to have a PIN lock due to Exchange Policy, but I am able to modify the lock screen widgets. Since I have lowered the DPI for my System UI, I have quite a lot of room available above the PIN lock. Apart from the...

    Post [POLL] Do you think ics is a failure??

    Back to GB After trying several ICS releases from Samsung over the last month or so, I went back to GingerBread. My main reason for going back is that ICS consumes battery a lot faster. I guess the main reason is the Exchange client, although I've also experienced the Audio_Out wakelocks. In...

    Post How long does your battery last on your SGS2?

    10 days and still going With all data disabled most of the time, almost unused, but still connected to the GSM network, mine is now at more than 10 days (and I think it wasn't even fully charged at the start of this period). This is with stock ROM, Apex launcher, almost no other custom apps.

    Post [ROOT]SGS2 Easy Rooting Toolkit(zergRush Exploit)

    Yesterday I updated my S2 through Kies to I9100XWKK2. Similar to mike with KK5, the exploit no longer works with this 2.3.6 firmware. I was previously using I9100XWKJ3 2.3.5 firmware (also updated through Kies); the exploit did work back then.

    Post Multi-CSC bug?..

    I'm seeing the exact same message (I've also got CSC XEN). I've only been using official firmwares; all firmware upgrades were done through Kies (so I never installed a custom CSC using Odin for example). I did temporarily install a custom kernel through Odin to get root access though, but have...

    Thread windowIsFloating=true & window size

    I'm developing an activity with a floating main window (e.g. windowIsFloating=true in the activity style). Unfortunately, within a floating window my layout (using fill_parent) is not expanded to the full screen size; fill_parent behaves like wrap_content instead. I suppose floating windows are...

    Thread [Q] CPU Tuner & battery life?

    Has anyone tried CPU Tuner (https://market.android.com/details?id=ch.amana.android.cputuner&feature=search_result) yet to see whether it improves battery life? For example, when playing a game like Angry Birds, it looks like the CPU scales up to full speed (1.2Ghz) even though only a small...

    Post Battery discharged by Nav app when Phone is connected to car charger

    I was using a Samsung Omnia II before getting the S2, and that one wouldn't even charge at all with a regular micro-USB cable on generic USB wall, car or emergency chargers. Using a modded cable with the USB data pins shorted, the phone will charge on any charger (probably shouldn't connect it...

    As I re-installed my phone I tried your code above. Although it correctly activates the NetFront window if already running, it causes problems if NetFront is not running already. One problem is that one of the ')' is misplaced in the If-statement (should be after 'NetFrontWindow' instead of...

    Post [APP] JZ SmartMort -Copy/Paste- Opera Mini & Mobile, NetFront, Skyfire, Iris & MORE!

    Thanks, haven't tried it yet but looks like it should work. Still, the code I provided earlier could be useful if you ever need to find a window by executable name. For example, if some browser uses only the page name in the window title without including the browser name.

    It is not the most elegant solution but the following quick hack seems to work on my phone. It can probably be improved a bit, for example leave the ForEach once the correct window has been found, and maybe limit the number of windows by supplying extra parameters to FindWindows. ### NF CODE...

    Thanks. I'm a software developer myself (mostly Java), so I'm used to being thorough :) I just had a quick look at the MortScript manual, and indeed there seems to be no way to switch to a window based on process name. According to the changelog, this will change however with MortScript 4.3...

    NetFront loads URL in background Thanks for this great piece of software. However, I'm having a minor but annoying problem with NetFront. If NetFront is already running in the background and I pass a new URL to it via JZ Browser, NetFront stays in the background. For example, if I'm reading...

    Post All Opera Mobile/Mini versions: Official thread

    Disable auto-rotation? I've installed Opera Mobile 10 (build 50433) on my Samsung Omnia II. Overall I'm quite happy with it, except for the really annoying auto-rotation. I would rather manually rotate the screen while using Opera (for example using a hardware button). Also, Opera even rotates...

    Post xImapPusher - based on ImapPusher-0.60

    I don't believe everything I see ;-). I was just trying to find an explanation why for example EmailScheduler drained the battery so much faster than Windows Live. After trying out xImapSync for the last few days, I now know that it is just caused by the way EmailScheduler is implemented. With...

    Post xImapPusher - based on ImapPusher-0.60

    Basically, I got the idea by reading somewhere that Pocket Outlook IMAP solutions are always less efficient than, for example, ActiveSync. This is because every time Outlook needs to retrieve mail, it needs to set up a TCP/IP connection, set up SSL if applicable and do a LOGON (and afterwards do...

    It's not that I don't trust your code; as a programmer (non-embedded Java and some C#) I'm just interested in what components like these exactly do. Anyway, I had some time left yesterday so I installed xImapPusher. So far it's working good, too early to compare battery usage with EmailScheduler...
