    Post Question Anyone experiencing very slow charging on 5V 2.4A?

    I'm using my old 4a charger, usually under 2 hours. I just can't believe the SOT!

    Post Question Anyone seen the trade-in kit?

    Post General Pixel 6a OEM Unlocking Greyed Out STILL in August Update

    I did the sign up for beta, get ota 13, sign out of beta, thing. Got 13 instantly (although takes 45 minutes to install), and unlock bootloader is still available.

    Post General Pixel 6a OEM Unlocking Greyed Out STILL in August Update

    Odd, when I got June update it became available. But I haven't received any update since, just waiting for ota. I think I'll wait rather than sideload, maybe it will stick.

    Post Question Anyone seen the trade-in kit?

    Finally got my return kit! Post lady put it in the wrong box (that wasn't used by any neighbor). Packed ready to go. Does the post office give you a drop off receipt like UPS does? Be nice to have proof of drop off.

    USPS keeps getting worse! Why on earth would Google use them? Maybe to make them disappear so they don't pay?

    Post Question Anyone seen the trade-in kit?

    Can someone post a picture or two what the kit and return form looks like? Since mine says delivered and I never got it, I'm about ready to just pay to mail it back myself. Just want to be sure I get the paperwork/return address right.

    Post Question 6a from Google: Can't unlock bootloader

    Only fixed if you factory reset again. Think I'll leave things stock for a while.

    Post Accessories What case/screen protector did you go with?

    Does dust gather in all those crevasses? I like the Rugged Armor because the camera area doesn't bulge out. Looks like they both have the same side ribbing. Is it called "air" because it's spongier? If so I may try one.

    Post Question 6a from Google: Can't unlock bootloader

    I really don't want to factory reset, do you think the August update will remove the grayed out unlock? I'm in no hurry to root, but it would be nice to use Swift BU again. Don't know why Google doesn't backup data on most apps!

    Post Accessories What case/screen protector did you go with?

    I bought Caseology and Spigen. Returned the Caseology, thought it didn't have enough grip. At least the Spigen has ribs the entire edge, much better grip.

    Post Accessories What case/screen protector did you go with?

    Tried Caseology Nano Pop, thought it too slippery. Ended up with what I had on my 4a, Spigen Rugged Armor. Would like a spongier feel, but at least it has texture all the way up on both sides.

    Post Question Recently got a Pixel 6a and...

    So if I had my 4a rooted a couple years ago, but went back to stock, I should be able to just factory reset, right? No flashing needed? Does it matter if you send it back with bootloader unlocked?

    Post Google Files Default Sort

    Any updates on this? Everytime I want to find an image to post, I always have to go to the sort by tab. Very time consuming, especially with small image thumbnails making it easy to post the wrong image. If I wanted to post an image here (or anywhere) it will take me 3 or 4 clicks to find it!

    Post Question Are you getting a Pixel 5a?

    Undecided. Would like the larger screen. If TWRP was an easy install (compared to 4a), would jump on it. Will probably wait another year (or two).

    I had the same concern, and sure would like TWRP on a11. But I'm on the latest, and easy to root. I use Swift BU, which does good batch backups weekly. So far haven't had the need to restore. But upgrading monthly security is fairly easy (5 minutes). Magisk gives me QS columns, font change...

    Post Any way to change boot animation

    Looking at the zips of the files in product/media, the files are different from normal boot-animation zips. The desc file is different, and there trim.txt files in the part folders. I haven't played with it yet, but would be nice to change change the G one.

    So, if I got the February patch OTA, all I need to do is fastboot flash boot --slot all magisk_patched_boot.img to root? Did you patch with Canary, Beta, or Stock Magisk or does it matter if I'm just flashing your patched?
