    Post De-branding Moto G5

    I wrote things for which I had quite good information about : you may take the time to read the Free Software Foundation Europe speech about this [here] Or, if you prefer to read the official EU Directive ("Directive 1999/44/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 May 1999 on...

    I had no time yet to investigate, but after dirty installing latest build yesterday, I got two soft reboots today (so kernel messages would be useless to read I think) Other than that it works pretty well :)

    Post g5 keeps rebooting into twrp

    As I see, this is a very common question, and people don't seem to read your twrp FAQ as often as they should.. Either we should duplicate this specific question or linking to your thread from the general FAQ one ?

    Same here, Had no time to investigate, but I noticed a similar behavior on my device: battery stats show some activity spikes while unused at night and it sometimes wake up while lying on my desk. I don't know if it is one of the sensors' threshold that is set too low and reacts to signal noise...

    Post G5 charging slow on 99% of cables

    If I have some time, I may test internal impedance of the cables, it is possible that the device somehow probes the cable (or the cable + charger) and then decides if it can or not draw that much power without overheating/melting the cable; and then it will negotiate the quickCharge with the...

    Post I got wet my phone and touchscreen doesn't work

    Is your device properly dried? If so, it might be time to open is and see any water damage on the digitizer connector. In the mean time you might use an external mouse and keyboard plugged on to a hub in OTG.

    Keep your Falcon if it still works Cedric is far from being a bad device, but I would have wait a little more if my own falcon had not died too soon. Cedric doesn't have a big enough community for any efficient dev teamwork.

    At least the governor is properly configured for the 4-7 cluster on stock ROM (that's something that I was starting to doubt about...) If you ever install LinageOS in the next days (but I hope it will be fixed before) you may need to force the governor of the cluster 4-7 by 'echoing' it to core...

    If I understand HMP correctly, it works this way : - the scheduler is energy-aware and knows which core are performance ones, which ones are power-efficient. thus can send a process to a specific cluster depending on the demand. - big cores are mostly idle or off by default - LITTLE cores are...

    cpuZ fails to detect the two different clusters and assumes core 1-7 are slave of core 0 If you are rooted, the app "Kernel Adiutor" can tell us more about this by looking at CPU menu, and governor for the LITTLE cluster Or cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu4/cpufreq/scaling_governor
