    Oh I see! Thank you. I wonder why keep the old version there...? EDIT: And, of course, I fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The first, is never get involved in a land war in Asia. But only slightly less well known is, never ask a question that's already been answered if you didn't...

    FWIW I'm not trying to deter you in any way but I've been running DNS66 for ad blocking for a while now and I'm quite impressed. Doesn't require root and it's super light on resources. It runs a vpn (i know, I know, that's total ****e and untrustworthy, except open source and it's really just...

    Post [GUIDE] Unlock/Flash/Root for the Pixel 2 XL (taimen)

    Having rooted and flashed many devices over the years I've been through many types of root management tools. Magisk seems to be yet another new flavor of root management. If I don't care about passing SafetyNet must I go through the hoops of Magisk or are there simpler root management schemes...

    Strangely enough, (and even with my Nexus 6,) in the booming megalopolis that is Tallahassee, FL, I don't run into any 3G/1X areas, and I live on the outside of town.

    I really want you to be saying this in a sarcastic tone, but since this is the internet and I can't read tone I'm just going to fly into a rage instead.

    It takes hours to get to 100%. I recently got hold of a USB-A to USB-C cable and plugged the phone into my Nexus 6 brick. The difference was astounding. Full charge in about 1.5 hours. It's sickening that I spent the money on this phone only to have it be so disappointing. I'm a diehard Google...

    How in the hell does Google let their devices languish in locked bootloader prison with carriers anymore? Why don't they give us the ability to root the phone if we're developers? You'd think you could just jump right in and unlock your bootloader on the Google Store purchased ones (unlocked...

    Great list... Now how about you tell us which versions of Android these work on? Since Android 6.1.x you can only change the DNS for tethered devices and nothing else. Everything else is ignored, no matter what you set or which app you use.
