    Post [UNLOCK][ROOT][TWRP][UNBRICK] Fire HD 10 2017 (suez)

    I'm not very familiar with gitHub, but it looks like all old releases are there. Newer ones are listed first, so you may have to advance to a subsequent page to get the one you want. https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/releases

    Post [UNLOCK][ROOT][TWRP][UNBRICK] Fire HD 10 2017 (suez)

    I got a notification about a new Magisk version 22.0 today. It is a combined app and zip file. I thought maybe this boot problem would be fixed on our Fire HD 10, but no luck. And yet it looks like this problem was closed out the day after we mentioned it. I wonder why. Has anyone else...

    I am also having problems with 21.3. (The difference is that I have a custom rom installed). I also tried 21.2 and that fails. But 21.1 does work (and 20.4). I'm not that familiar with GitHub, but it looks like someone reported a similar problem #3636, 15 days ago on a Sony Z1C. It's about 9...

    Post [Guide] How to Install TWRP & Root Essential PH-1(Method 2)

    I'm not sure if this will help. But I have two of these essential phones, both from eBay, so they had been used, but seemingly in okay condition. I had some problems with the first one failing doing fastboot commands now and then. But generally, it worked pretty well. But with the second one, I...

    Post [ROM][10.0][PRE-OFFICIAL][TREBLE][X72x][OTA][VOLTE] AOSiP-Q

    For the hardware buttons, I have preferred that they not be lit, yet still function properly. That was allowed in the pie version of aosip. It was under owlsnest, hardware buttons, then there were tabs called navigation and backlight. Under navigation, I could disable them entirely. I was not...

    Post [ROM][10.0][PRE-OFFICIAL][TREBLE][X72x][OTA][VOLTE] AOSiP-Q

    Now I have the newer version, and I'm happy to see OwlsNest! Under Statusbar, clock and date, the Pizza (Pie) version allowed me to place the date and time at the rightmost side of the statusbar (Clock/Alignment = Left, Center, or Right). I only see the option to move the date to the left or...

    Yes, I do not have that! When you click settings, Owlsnest used to be 4 or so down in that screen, i.e. the screen where Network and internet, Connected devices show. But it does not show for me at all. And if I search the settings for owls nest, it is not found. Where does it appear for you in...

    I did not think that the prior pie version had to be installed before installing this one. It seems like any of the settings like OwlsNest would be available in the new one, even if we did not update from the older one. EDIT: I think I misunderstood you. You were not saying I had to be on the...

    Will Owlsnest with all the extra options be added in this version (pizza had it)? I realize this is just released, so this question may be premature.

    Yes, I installed the Opera VPN app and tested the court TV problem, and the problem did not occur. So I guess you thought I installed the app and didn't test after that? That would be pretty crazy of me! I realize there are other ways to get things to work. As I mentioned with the Miracast...

    I'm confused. I thought you asked me to try the original Opera with VPN, not Opera Mini. That's what I did. I have not installed any thing else related to VPN. I only installed the app that you suggested, and it did work. As far as installing your zip, I read a post about using something from a...

    Yes, Opera VPN works. But here's the strange thing. The exact same problem occurred with ggow's 12.1 lineage ROM. I told him about this problem, and he fixed it in his next release. I did not need to use another browser. So maybe when he returns, he can figure out the fix he used then and the...

    I have both of those files, but I have an 's' on codec. That's probably what you meant. I have only installed the ggow 14.1 rom one time, and I copied the unzipped files from the OMX fix into system/lib. YouTube works fine after copying those files. It is only Court TV live stream that I am...

    I spoke too soon about my court TV problem being fixed. I just went to that site and stream live, and the error message no longer came up. But I didn't watch to see what actually occurred. Now I see that the video plays for only about one second and then freezes. Audio is fine.

    I know that I can use something like the localcast app. Is that what you were going to suggest? That's fine for getting around the problem. But ggow did say a while back that he didn't think it would be too difficult to fix. So I was wondering if it was already working on other fire devices...

    The built-in cast feature does not connect. I'm sure the exact error message depends on what TV you're connecting to, but after about 5 seconds, TV says something like unable to connect. Mine is an LG TV.

    ggow, I mentioned a Miracast problem in this thread and also in the 12.1 thread. One sentence I wrote there said: "This seems to be related to something about Mtk OMX". That was just a guess after I looked at the logcats, so the Miracast problem may have nothing to do with OMX. But since you...
