    Post [SOLVED] How to monitor network connections in Android 12?

    Hi giostark, Thank you very much for your research! I can't believe how little information is available in the net on such an important topic. Actually I think, each OS should be able to show the user which app causes how much traffic right now, like in the Windows Task-Manager. Unfortunately...

    Post KERNEL ❯ PIXEL 5 ❯ Proton Kernel

    Guys, we are wrong - or at least I was wrong. This kernel DOES work with ProtonAOSP 12. One just has to disable verification first. See instructions here: https://divnectar.com/blog/android-guide (section VBmeta.img and Veritity) To check, if you are running Proton kernel, go to Settings -...
