No, it´s due to FRP protection, the partition where is allocated IMEI/s remains unmounted. Sorry, I can´t help you further, it´s against the rules.

TWRP Recovery
I have a tablet IBall Slide Snap 4g2 to with I ported a recovery for Panasonic Eluga ray x. I succeeded in porting but there is only one problem, that is , screen. You see, Slide is a tablet. So twrp will have landscape orientation (screen) for it. But the touch is still vertical orientation. So I tried searching every post on XDA as well as on the internet . But I only found one solution and that is also not working. Please help.
Thanks in advance

Try connecting a mouse or keyboard to the device, then use the mouse or keyboard to make your selections.

As you have ported the binary from TWRP, you are approaching building it. I would suggest the thread https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho....php?t=1943625 for building TWRP. You will find many posts on how to adjust the mapping of the screen co-ordinates. However, I do not know if the changes will need to be compiled in.

I discovered the version of Android I'm on has severe security flaws I'd like fixed as soon as possible.

I'd like to know if it's possible to manually apply a security patch on a specfic system component without rebuilding the whole system ?

I'm using a custom ROM where OTA hasn't been implemented and that is no longer updated.

This ROM is based on AOSP (AEX) so I think I can apply the patch on the affected components without breaking everything. But I'm not sure about if I can simply compile/take the fixed version and replace the flawed component with it or if I should replace it in the source of the ROM, build it, then flash it, considering the later as less than ideal.

What should I do then ? I already searched the web but I've found nothing but unanswered questions.

A "security flaw" if a very broad statement.

If you have a specific security flaw, it may be localised to an update-able portion/component of your ROM. However, many security updates need to be compiled into the ROM.

A common security fix, and simple possibility is through adding a SELinux deny. A change like that can be coded as part of the boot through Magisk.It really depends on which security flaw you are trying to fix.

Thanks for answering ! The security flaws I'm trying to fix are here: https://threatpost.com/google-critic...s-flaw/150764/
One is about the Framework component and the two others are (again) from the Media Framework. I don't know if these two system components are updatable, though. What do you think ?

Lots of references to "framework". Without looking at the changes specifically, I would estimate the way would be via a merge and compile. I would *guess* is that you would most likely have to merge in any other prior security updates, since your current build, up to this one.

The easiest way to get the latest security patches (if they are not already in the latest build of your ROM) is to upgrade to the latest stable version of android for your device.

Arg, that's definitely bad news. Anyway, thank you so much for your answers !

Hello everyone,

I want to ask; suppose I formatted SD card as internal memory (in Android 6+) as I know this will format, encrypt and transfer existing applications+data to SD card.

My question is, if I want to move back to internal storage and unmount SD card will it transfer latest application data from SD to internal? if no how to do this?

Thanks
