    Thread [APP][5.0+][Giveaway] Nate, an app to help you track your subscriptions

    These past few months, me and a friend have teamed up as a developer and a designer with the goal of building a subscription manager that does the basics really well. This was a problem that we both had faced, and none of the other apps that we had tried fit the bill. Features Quick overview...

    Post Corrupted cache partition

    Favtory resetting from TWRP seemed to solve the problem! I had kept on wiping the partitions (data and cache) separately in advanced wipe instead of performing factory reset as I assumed that it was exactly the same, however as you mentiond, performing a factory reset rebuilds the cache...

    Thread Corrupted cache partition

    While updating the watch to Marshmallow, somehow I managed corrupted my cache partition. The watch is now stuck in a bootloop (always entering recovery). The stock recovery doesn't work anymore (black screen and some occasional text). I flashed TWRP and when checking the partition details, the...

    Post [App] Speed Wear

    Odds are that the apps hasn't yet synced to the watch. You can either wait a while for it to sync automatically, or else go into the Android Wear app, go into Settings, select your watch and press Resync Apps.

    As pbanj said, it's available in the last page. However, the Play Store issue should be fixed by now and you should be able to download it from there.

    Thanks everyone for all the kind words regarding TV Boot! Thank you for uploading the apk. I'll start to include an .apk in the main thread for future updates. I have fixed the compatibility issue and it should be available on the Play Store again in a couple of hours. On another note, would...

    Thread Bootloader locked with no OS installed

    Whilst upgrading to Oxygen OS, I ran into an issue (wiped all partitions however ADB Sideload did not work so I got stuck with no OS). In an attempt to completely wipe the phone, I tried to lock and relock the bootloader, forgetting that the phone required to be booted up in order to unlock the...

    Post TV Boot (Reboot and Shutdown App)

    Thank you for the feedback and for letting me know :) I'll look into it however I doubt that I will add an option to kill background tasks as I believe that Android does a good job by itself and closing the apps manually does more harm than good.

    Post TV Boot (Reboot and Shutdown App)

    Thanks I appreciate the feedback! Didn't know that as I am yet to flash 5.1. However the added features such as reboot to recovery as well as the fact that it's faster than going through the settings should set it apart.

    One of the things that I found lacking with my Nexus Player was the ability to reboot straight from within Android. As such, I decided to write a small app which allows me to do just this. I have also added some other small features, such as Reboot to recovery, Reboot to bootloader and Shutdown...

    New build is up! This update switches to Linaro GCC 4.9 instead of the previous Google GCC 4.8 compiler, so there might be a slight increase in performance due to this change. More importantly, the bug which caused the weird Play Store icons is fixed, so the rom should be void of all the bugs...

    Not yet, I might add it in the future though as soon as I fix the current bugs. The icons should also be a side effect of the O3 optimisations. I just fixed the ART bug and will be uploading a build with it fixed soon, the release after that should have the icons fixed (I had already noticed...

    For now I think the best alternative would be the PA micro gapps. However if I understood correctly, BaNKs has contacted TKruzze (maintainer of PA Gapps) who will start producing a smaller package, which would be very similar to BaNKs gapps.

    Flashed the ROM yesterday and it seems that every one was right about the speed :P So far I only had one issue; when Lockscreen Notifications are enabled, the phone doesn't lock properly and everything becomes messed up up on locking the phone (don't really know how to explain what happens :P)...

    Post [DER KERNEL] Trinity for Nexus 5

    From what I found it might be related to the Qualcomm Time Daemon, and it seems to have be a pretty common bug on the Note 3.

    Post [DER KERNEL] Trinity for Nexus 5

    I have a feeling that as you say, the recovery might be the culprit. When the problem first happened I was running TWRP 2.7.1.0, now I have downgraded to 2.7.0.0 however the problem still persists. When I change the date manually and reboot, the date still goes back to 1970, which led me to...

    Post White Nexus 5 with Black Back Cover

    Thanks! The lens trim is a bit rough due to wear and tear (I use the phone without a cover so it's pretty much always resting on the lens). Polishing will not make the surface any rougher as all it does is wear of the paint layer. What I suggest though is that you take the lens part out of the...
