It looks like Magisk is being developed again, so now it is the main go-to for rooting your device (or using it's modules). When superSU was still being developed it was the default rooting method for devices like the Samsung S2 - S5 and so forth. Then, when does superSU become a better choice over Magisk and vice versa?

There is no simple answer as each tool has it's strengths/weaknesses along with varying levels of 'compatibility' based on hardware, boot image, ROM and other factors - not to mention experience level of the warm blooded gizmo at the helm. FWIW I prefer the simplicity/stability of SuperSU on legacy devices; Magisk is the go-to choice on newer hardware. Magisk also supports a large library of modules and root cloaking if those capabilities tickle your fancy.

Need help w/ my Huawei KII-L05 (GR5)
Hi,
I own a Huawei KII-L05 as my main phone. It is slow, and at the moment I am saving for something else, so I cannot buy a new phone. I decided to speed up or at least "improve" my phone buy upgrading to Android 9.0 (Pie). One of the problems I have is finding the ROM and other software that is compatible with my Huawei KII-L05. Is it ok to use the software originally designed for an Honor 5X, since they are similar phones? Also, I can't seem to find a way to obtain my Huawei unlock code. Help getting that would also be appreciated.
Many thanks, Norqw.

Model #: HUAWEI KII-L05
Build #: KII-L05C654B360
IMEI: 860375030663681
Product ID: 41524442
Please tell if any additional info is needed.

What music FX (bass booster and equalizer) that isn't any variant of Viper FX, good for replacing stock Lollipop and Oreo? I've had some issues installing Viper FX variants, so I'm just looking for something simple that works for rooted phones that are on XDA or the Google Play Store. Thanks.

I just figured that these unlink methods are temporarily.Maybe the only way is to clone apps generally..but don't know we magisk users can do to solve this.if we clone with different package name,then probably y.y won't open by default..

Huawei no longer provides code unlock, without the ability to unlock bootloader there´s nothing to do to customize device at this level (root, custom recovery, roms), now unlock it have a cost (and much), you can read this post to have a better idea https://www.xda-developers.com/huawe...ootloader-fee/

Upgrading to a higher Android build probably won't yield much benefit in terms of performance and may introduce a boatload of problems. Especially if the kernel is not optimized for Pie. And no, in most cases you can not flash a rom built for another device even if they are close cousins. Your beat bet may be to perform a 'factory reset' which will clear out a accumulated clutter that can slow a device.

If I flashed a ROM with GAPPs and uninstalled or disabled musicfx, then will all frequencies be flat by default unless I install and run a third party equalizer? Would it default to music player's equalizer? Or, would the player stop working without a system equalizer (musicfx)?

[Note: For some reason, musicfx was having errors like "has not responded" windows randomly popping up sometimes after switching the option to use the music player's equalizer instead. Even after switching back to the system equalizer (musicfx) the errors still popped up. So, I cleared the data and cache for musicfx, and no longer seen the errors. But later I found that third party equalizers on the Google Play Store to be a little better for bass boosting and present frequencies (non-rooted though)].

Thanks!

Does anyone here know a way to be able to have more control over the volume with a bluetooth speaker? I have the Harmon/Kardon Onyx mini. Since I've got my Lenovo tab4 8 Plus, I've noticed that the volume on the tablet is in sync with the speaker. This wasn't the case on all my other tablets. I can certainly see advantages, but to me, it has produced a problem. The volume steps are too big. I only have about 15 options. Say if I wanted to listen to something really quietly, it is a bit too loud, then barely audible. Before, I could use the speaker volume separately (which had very small steps in volume), or could put the tablets volume to maximum, which made the steps on the speaker larger and quicker to adjust. Is there any app or anything that gives you more steps? Or a way to disable the tablet and speaker volume being in sync.

Thanks.

If the device is rooted and has custom recovery, try this:

https://www.xda-developers.com/how-t...e-slider-root/

You can also use root explorer to browse to the file that handles the devices audio input/output/volume parameters(what it is called and where it is located in your system partition is/can be different from one device brand or android version to another), then open that file in a note editor and change the values manually then save the file and reboot. Start with very small changes, then increase as needed, this way you get an understanding of how much increase gets how much result without going too far and damaging your hardware.
