    Post Stuck in RESCUE MODE screen in Huawei p8 lite

    so here I am 6 years later with the same exact problem: just wanna confirm that in this situation there is no way to get data (photos) from the phone right? If there is a solution, then it's only with data reset right?

    Post How to re-lock bootloader

    Hello, so here I am in 2022 and I have unlocked my S10 to install TWRP, not knowing it will be erased (because it doesn't say anywhere on the screen!), but in the end it was probably worth it because phone runs better after reset (especially the battery lasts much longer from some mysterious...

    is there some dev around who could explain this please?

    something happened to traffic log - I see only UIDs but if I tap on it and on the number in context menu it no longer shows me process name and details - just an empty page. Why is that? and I get this and it's not just this 1051, but other numbers also.

    OK figured out red, but you didn't answer completely - there are three colours, so what's the difference between red and light red?

    another question: I haven't blocked anything yet and notification says 571 rules allowed, 0 blocked. But if I open traffic log it keeps logging uid 1051 android.dns as blocked about 4 times every 20seconds or so. Why is that?
