    Post [BOOTANIMATION][MM] Android Marshmallow bootanimation in multiple resolutions

    Okay, my bad, I thought the bootanimation you uploaded was not rotated yet, so I rotated it and that made it into portrait again. I've uploaded a new file into my previous post.

    Post [BOOTANIMATION][MM] Android Marshmallow bootanimation in multiple resolutions

    Hi, I think there are two possible things that could have gone wrong: 1) You forgot to swap the dimensions in desc.txt - I think if you forgot that, the animation would just have weird proportions, but would still work somehow, so this is less likely 2) The bootanimation.zip file must not use...

    Post [ROM] [sailfish] [8.1] [LOS-based] **crDroid**OMS**v4.7 (10/12/18)

    I've been using OpenGapps for quite a few months now, without any issues. I'm using stock gapps with the ForceNewCamera keyword, so it installs the right camera libraries. Can't tell if visual voicemail works, because people never use voicemail in my part of the world, but it does install the...

    Hi, I think I had the same problem, often I didn't get a notification until a second email arrived, and then I got two notifications at once, but I think I found where the problem was. Can you look into Gmail - Settings - your account - Inbox notifications and see if you have everything enabled...

    Post [ROM][Pixel-XL][11.0.0_r45] PixelDust Android 11 for marlin [30 Sept 2021]

    I'm using Measure and ARuler (which use ARCore) just fine on Resurrection Remix and crDroid on my smaller Pixel. I'm using opengapps (the stock package with ForceNewCamera option), though, maybe that makes the difference, because it includes some needed native libraries? No idea.

    Post [ROM][OFFICIAL]Resurrection Remix v6.0 [Android 8.1][05/20/18]

    You have to disable pocket detection, it's broken. If it's already off, try turning it on and back off again, there's some mismatch between the toggle and the actual preference value.

    Post [ROM][OREO][OFFICIAL] lineage-15.1 for Pixels (marlin/sailfish)

    You could try downloading OpenGApps Stock from the OpenGApps website, and then putting forcenewcamera in .gapps-config. I'm not sure Stock gapps will fit in the system partition on the Pixel, though, so you might have to unselect some non-critical apps through .gapps-config as well, you can...

    Post TWRP 3.2.3-1 for Pixel Devices

    That's probably it, you have to have a completely stock boot.img before flashing Magisk, so that when Magisk restores it the OTA is able to patch it.

    Post TWRP 3.2.3-1 for Pixel Devices

    Yeah, I have not actually tried this, since I'm not running the stock ROM, so as Sheeezy says, definitely do a backup before listening to any internet stranger's advice. Sheeezy - I wonder, did you have TWRP installed, or do you just fastboot boot it? I think that if you would install TWRP...

    Post TWRP 3.2.3-1 for Pixel Devices

    If you have only Magisk installed, it's quite easy, Magisk supports uninstalling itself before OTA and then reinstalling itself after OTA but before reboot. Look here: https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/blob/master/docs/tips.md#ota-installation-tips

    Post [ROM][OFFICIAL]Resurrection Remix v6.0 [Android 8.1][05/20/18]

    I had a similar issue, it looked like the screen would half turn on and touch would work, but the image stayed completely black. What helped me was to disable Pocket Detection in Settings - Configurations - Buttons. (I actually had it off in the first place, but toggling it on and off again helped.)

    Post [BOOTANIMATION][MM] Android Marshmallow bootanimation in multiple resolutions

    Apparently on Huawei devices the bootanimation is either in /system/etc/media (on Marshmallow) or in /product/etc/media on Nougat. Try to take a look if it is there and maybe replace it, it should work. I don't have any Huawei devices, so I can't test it, sorry.

    Strange, for me cleaning the button with alcohol didn't help, but knocking works. I have to knock with my knuckles on the display just next to the power button, and it manages to get it unstuck somehow. Also, a quick tip for people without a working power button - you can add a new button to...

    Post [ROM][7.1.2_r24][UNOFFICIAL][grouper] LineageOS 14.1 for Nexus 7 2012

    I think there is some issue with the SELinux contexts, I think, to fix either open a Terminal emulator app or connect with adb shell and run: su restorecon -FR /data/media/0 That should fix the problem.

    When does it show you this error? When you try to add a new card, or simulate an existing one? Also, are you rooted via SuperSU, or Magisk? And did you maybe try the option Advanced / Unlock system partition in the menu of the app?

    Post [ROM][LOS15.1][8.1.0] DARK ROM BETA [Pixel features][04/16]

    Where do you see that the MAC address is changing? In WiFi settings? Since Android 5.0, Android is randomizing the MAC address when scanning for WiFi, to prevent hotspots from tracking you. But the MAC address used for actual connecting should always be the same.

    Post [BOOTANIMATION][MM] Android Marshmallow bootanimation in multiple resolutions

    Did you mount /system before? Normally when you start TWRP, /system is not mounted and only the bin folder shows up inside. The purpose of the permissions system is to disallow unauthorized users to change the files on the device. Permissions 644 / rw-r--r-- mean that the owner of the file is...

    Post [BOOTANIMATION][MM] Android Marshmallow bootanimation in multiple resolutions

    That's super weird, even if the bootanimation was malformed, the phone should start normally, just not showing the bootanimation. How exactly did you install it? Can you check in TWRP if the file /system/media/bootanimation.zip has the proper permissions (644 / rw-r--r--)? Did other...

    Post [BOOTANIMATION][MM] Android Marshmallow bootanimation in multiple resolutions

    I sure could! But what orientation do you want it? Should it be 768px wide, or 1024px wide? By the way, if you're playing with bootanimations a lot, I made a tool for resizing them, maybe you'll find it useful.

    Post [BOOTANIMATION][MM] Android Marshmallow bootanimation in multiple resolutions

    No need to do anything, basically, there's just an extra file /system/media/bootanimation.zip on your device, you can delete it, but there's no harm keeping it there either.

    This bootanimation will NOT work on newer Samsung devices with stock ROMs or TouchWiz-based custom ROMs. Samsung uses a proprietary QMG format for its bootanimations, and doesn't support the bootanimation.zip which is used here. There's not much that can be done about this, I can only recommend...

    Post [BOOTANIMATION][MM] Android Marshmallow bootanimation in multiple resolutions

    No problem with me, the animation was made by Google anyway, I'm just repacking it. And I think CM Theme Engine resizes bootanimations to your device's resolution. xdagee already made a theme with the animation, you can find it in his thread.

    Post [BOOTANIMATION][MM] Android Marshmallow bootanimation in multiple resolutions

    That shouldn't happen, strange. The bootanimation is not really important, and even if it's missing, Android should boot perfectly without it. The rebooting might be caused by some bug in TWRP 3.x, but I really have no idea now. Could you try to read what's written on the TWRP screen just before...

    The problem might be that the Galaxy Nexus has a GPU too slow to play this animation in 60fps. The Galaxy Nexus has the same PowerVR SGX540 GPU as the Nexus S, albeit clocked a bit higher, but it has a much bigger display resolution, so when it has to play this animation, it has to push 2.4x...

    If you have any CyanogenMod theme for bootanimation installed, then the animation will not change. You would first have revert back to the built-in system bootanimation theme, and then install this bootanimation.

    Post [BOOTANIMATION][MM] Android Marshmallow bootanimation in multiple resolutions

    That is simply not true. The animation should theoretically work on any Android device, and it should properly show the final part on any device with Android 4.1 or higher. Sure, some manufacturers like Samsung or Micromax change the bootanimation process in their ROMs, but in general it should...

    You should use the 800p version. And wiping cache or dalvik cache isn't useful at all when changing bootanimation, so you don't need to do that.
