    Post Top 5 Xiaomi Mi A1 Back Cover, Cases, and Tempered Glasses

    Yes! After lots of trial & error, this is the first that has adhesive on all the surface, and looks great: there is no rainbow effect and when the display is off it looks black and not gray. Thank for sharing :good::good::good:

    Post [TOOL] Google Camera without root/magisk (Enable Camera2Api, EIS)

    The two methods are almost identical, the main difference being that Aridane created a tool to automate the process. From a technical point of view, Aridane sets the required properties while the phone is temporary booted in TWRP, while flex sets the properties while the phone is temporary...

    Post [GUIDE] How to enable Camera2 API persistently and keep bootloader locked

    I installed it to handle the root authorization dialog, I'm not sure it's really necessary. AW it doesn't do any harm, it's just an apk :)

    Post [GUIDE] How to enable Camera2 API persistently and keep bootloader locked

    Yes, you are right! I just enabled HAL3 & EIS by unlocking the bootloader, booting from patched_boot.img with Magisk Manager installed, setting the persistent properties and relocking the bootloader. Great work!

    Post Pouch cases which will fit the nexus 5?

    Hi, I recently fitted an Ultraslim Sena case for the HTC One to my Nexus 5. I shaped a piece of balsa wood to resemble the shape of the Nexus, split it in two pieces and then used a pencil to stretch the leather of the case. To achieve a better result, I also soaked the case with water. After...

    Post Nillkin LG Nexus 5 Anti-Explosion Tempered Glass Screen Protector

    I applied my Nillkin with the hinge method and got two spiderweb lines across the screen, which wouldn't go away. After 6/8 days from the installation I was able to remove the webs by pressing hard on them with my fingers for 30-60 secs! I'm really happy of this screen protector!:good:

    Post Pouch cases which will fit the nexus 5?

    It is quite slim, actually it is even slimmer than Sena Ultraslim. As for the overall quality and experience, Sena cases are in a different category. Let's say that it is a good temporary case while I wait for Sena to release their Ultraslim for the Nexus 5 :) Inviato dal mio iPad con Tapatalk HD

    Post Pouch cases which will fit the nexus 5?

    I just received this sleeve. It is very tight, but I hope it will get more loose with time. The height of the sleeve is a perfect match for the Nexus 5. The leather is fine, perhaps a little too thin. Overall quality is good for the price. Inviato dal mio iPad con Tapatalk HD

    I can confirm this. As long as you send the book to your device (I use a folder on Dropbox :) ), Calibre updates the epub's metadata. Alse note that Calibre holds its information in a SQLite 'metadata.db' file in the root of the library folder and in a '.metadata.calibre' file in the device...

    Post [Solved] On the problem of broken bookmarks

    There are no DBs in the update zip (actually there is nothing there that belongs to /data partition...) so it is not possible. You could add the sqlite3 binary and modify the updater-script to add the triggers, but I believe that the NST check the zip signature before updating, so it still...

    Post [Solved] On the problem of broken bookmarks

    I don't think so, the SQLite DBs are not included in the firmware and are created by B&N software when needed (at least this is what it looks like: if you delete the DBs and reboot, most of them are immediatly recreated on next boot, but not all of them). So I think you need root for this.
