    Thread Fire 7 (2017, 7th Gen) Downgrade and Debloat

    Ok, I have a friend who won a Fire 7 running FireOS 5.4.0.1 from a raffle and wanted a bit less Amazon and a bit more Google, so through reading various threads, the following is the best I could do for him: 1. Download and Install Amazon Kindle/Fire drivers from Amazon Dev site...

    Thread Phone Replaced, still broken

    The first Moto G started off fine, though fairly constantly laggy (which I blamed on the low/mid specs of the phone.) Then it started getting quite warm while using it, then it started turning off with 5-10% battery left and would not turn back on, even after charging, unless you tried to turn...

    Post [CLOSED][ROM][OFFICIAL] CyanogenMod 13 For Moto X

    I was afraid of that. I really like my battery life on KitKat though. Is this because the latest firmware updates the radios? And if I make a TWRP backup of KitKat, flash latest Lollipop, what issues will I have restoring my KitKat backup if I decide to go back after upgrading?

    Post [CLOSED][ROM][OFFICIAL] CyanogenMod 13 For Moto X

    Unlocked bootloader, TWRP 2.8.7.2 flashed as recovery, running stock KitKat 4.4.4, never upgraded or flashed anything newer. Is there anything I need to do or know before flashing this ROM?

    Post [APP] PokeMod EX for Pokemon GO & Ingress

    It might take a while to get the log, but I'll let you know when I do. I didn't figure this was a problem on your end with the app, so I'm happy for the help to be able to point it back at them to fix the bugs. Thank you!

    I tried uninstalling and doing a manual install per the instructions you get when it fails and the app runs fine with Pokemon Go, but still random reboots. Sometimes it's only a minute or two, sometimes I can play 10 minutes before it does it. I posted about it being a bug in Fire Nexus and they...

    Post [DISCONTINUED][AOSP] Fire Nexus ROM - KTU84Q [17 Oct 2016]

    I am keeping a copy of Fire Nexus in the TWRP/ROMs folder I made for safe keeping in the event of a disaster. I also have a backup of FireOS 4.5.5.1 before I flashed Fire Nexus to go back to as well. I like to be prepared.

    Thread Stuck on nVidia Logo, Can't Unlock Bootloader

    I tried turning on my Shield (WiFi) tablet today and it just stays stuck on the nVidia logo. I tried booting into recovery and it also just sits, stuck on the nVidia logo. I figured it might be corrupted (bad update, possibly), so I decided to restore it to factory settings by using the latest...

    That seemed to do the trick! Thanks! Google Voice doesn't replace talk. Google Voice lets you manage a Google Phone number, Google Talk is the Gmail Chat with Voice and Video.
