    Post Are there any VPN apps with builtin firewall?

    Had no idea work profile has its own VPN slot. Thx for the suggestion. The setup is working pretty smoothoy. Only concern: work profile apps can't automatically read OTP. So far, all the apps I use allow manually entering OTP. Hopefully it would be an issue. Also, I can't disable notifications...

    Post Are there any VPN apps with builtin firewall?

    Unfortunately that's not a solution. There are many apps that need to bypass VPN while still being able to connect to Internet, like banking apps. While I can always just turn off the VPN before using such apps, that would also turn off the firewall feature, right? Going by that logic, I can...

    I wanted this for the screenshot feature. Did not work. But I found a possible solution of the issue of binary download getting stuck at 99% . I used a VPN. The download was considerably slow, but it finished.

    I tried this method because I have somehow already lost stock persist. My /persist folder is totally empty now. I have nothing to lose. But it is not working. Upon reboot, the persist folder is getting automatically erased. Is it because I am on 8.1.0? Will a Nougat stock make a difference?

    Thanks for keeping this old phone alive through these updates. However, there seems to be some incompatibility between this ROM and every version of TWRP I tried. Every TWRP gave me ERROR 255: Can't execute '/tmp/updater': Exec format error Only thing that worked for me is the LineageOS...

    60FPS video recording is crashing. Since the stock camera is only 720p 30FPS, this is a big bummer. I do not need 4K but even 1080p 60FPS would have been nice. But if I turn off 4K in Gcam, the camera crashes. Edit: I got 60FPS working on stock. No idea why that option was greyed out.

    Quad Bayer 48MP means only 12MP after pixel binning. I do not see how choosing one from every four small pixels is better than simply having regular sized pixels without binning (other than being able to market it as a 48MP camera). The photo quality is not crap. It has less noise than my older...

    The device looks great. I was really thinking about buying it because my current phone is starting to have charging issues. Simply getting TWRP will not be enough. The device likely has dm-verity. So it will require a custom kernel too. But development for that can not even begin until TWRP...

    Files get decrypted every time you access it. TWRP lets you browse the contents of internal storage. It also lets you connect the phone to PC in file transfer mode. If you can flash Magisk from TWRP then TWRP can decrypt the storage. How else is it gonna write to the data partition? Maybe if...

    Encryption is pointless on an unlocked device because TWRP can decrypt it without requiring any password. Encryption works only in combination with locked bootloader. Even if a thief unlocks the bootloader, the unlock process deletes the encryption keys. It is possible to use some devices with...

    I think I should change the battery then. The phone is only usable between 84% and 29%. (about six hours of medium usage). It never goes above 84, and never goes below 29. As soon as it drops below 29, it shuts down.

    Why is battery not going above 84%? This is a significant issue on a phone that has an useless 3000mAh battery to begin with. Once it crosses the 84% mark, charge amount goes down to 10mA. I tried charging overnight, but it never went to 100.
