    Thanks for the thorough reply. I'll see if I can catch the issue for GPS. For me in SafetyNet, basic integrity is failing and I'm not sure where to go from here. Edit: I got it working with magisk :)

    Currently I've seemed to have rendered my xperia compact unable to flash twrp. (I reapplied the xperia firmware from xperifirm), so after i untangle myself from this mess I'll give it a shot. Sidenote: The error I receive when flashing TWRP via fastboot is a simple "FAILED ()", with nothing in...

    I've followed the steps with flashing the v3 loire to oem, then I wiped all data except for otg and sd card I then rebooted to recovery then flashed, now its stuck in a boot loop. I'm able to return to recovery. My twrp is version 3.2.3-0 What could be going wrong?

    I'm having a lot of trouble getting this to boot after flashing. I've flashed v3 of the beta kernel, and did a data format, but it just gets stuck in a boot loop. When you say 'clean wipe,' what does that entail? Also for some reason in my twrp I get an error about unable to mount/dismount...

    Post S905x (Android 7.1.2 ) TV Box GamePad support

    I know this is old, but after doing searching, it seems like no one replies to these threads with gamepad issues. Is this just something that's troublesome for devs to implement? Are the driver modules just not available? I am in the exact same boat as you, I'm hoping in the future I can turn...

    Thanks Aluminum for the reply. My situation looks rather dire. 1. Yes I have changed my partition table to resize GROW and userdata, and it worked. 2. I have followed the instructions for this procedure a year ago. I don't know how to confirm if they both are formatted or not. My linux...

    unfortunately my phone is using the old recovery, and I cannot boot normally. As per instructions, I am required to boot normally to even install the new boot image. Edit: Upon further investigation, there seems to be some inconsistencies between the adbb.bat file and my flash_boot.sh . For...

    Hmm I thought I replied to this. I experience overheats as well, but mostly when using maps. However, I haven't been able to see a correlation between reboots and overheating. I have a feeling that when available memory gets too low the system becomes unstable and inevitably reboots. With...

    alex-kas after successfully applying your custom recovery and resizing my partitions i seemed to have lost my boot animation and sound. It just shows a black screen. Is this intended? Perhaps with the new build.prop?

    My nieces phone for her upcoming birthday. The excuse I'm making to myself is that I'm "test driving" it. It's called the Xperia Tipo, she's only 9 and would be using it at more or less a little toy; no SIM card. I have better ones actually, HTC One and a Moto X (2013), the latter being my...

    it seems that there's no way to use fastboot with this phone. I may have royally screwed my phone up! Maybe I can do an adb boot recovery.img? Update: I managed to get out of boot loop thanks to 0x29a I doubt my situation is common, but I'll give a few details just in case someone ends up in...

    Negative, I can't boot into anything, except bootloader. Perhaps I can fastboot flash the recovery.img if I can get a hold of it. Otherwise, i'm stuck!

    RW was on when I applied the new font. I can't boot into recovery, and both normal boot and rw boot send me into an ATT bootloop. I can detect the device via adb devices, but can't do much beyond that.

    Thank you! I just want to say thank you both, alex-kas and 0x29a for the hard work! Many of us appreciate it :good: Edit: By the way, for those of you who applied the root solution, what bloatware have you removed and what root-only apps do you suggest be installed? Xposed? Greenify?
