Brilliant, not sure if I'm happy or sad or feel a bit used. Kind of sly is you're making money off other people's work in all honestly.
You're very welcome mate, happy to help
Ok so here's my two cents on it.
You are talking about zRAM, any device that has 4GB or more simply does not need zRAM or swap memory.
Performance, stamina, speed is increased especially gaming performance as you don't have to rely on slower memory, the difference is massive on slower devices.
So yep, there is an option for it. But you genuinely do not need it, I promise you.
If you really want it on you can use Franco's kernel manager, click memory then zRAM and turn it on, but I have to say I really wouldn't; you don't stand to benefit from it at all, swap memory is just a lot slower and genuinely not needed.
Hope this help
No i never said i got paid for it.
I think they maybe realised that 12GB is more than most laptops and for a phone it's sort of insane.. so yea. I really don't think it's necessary and hopefully neither do they.Yeah google made a big deal out of it. it would be amazing and all.
But i share your 2 cents i was jus wondering if other people found the same when just looking for the extra ram. alltough it's not needed, I'm just wondering why it's disabled after the whole process. and if it's disabled after unlocking the bootloader or actually after you've rooted.
Because for me it's a first that I found out that things are blocked after rooting on oneplus. And that doesn't sit right with me.
The laptop im on now has only 8GB its a trasty workhorse and thats about it.I think they maybe realised that 12GB is more than most laptops and for a phone it's sort of insane.. so yea. I really don't think it's necessary and hopefully neither do they.
I had 12 on my old phone (8 pro) barely used 7GB
I would always turn it off just for performance myself but I found that I never needed to on the 10, it was already done for me, I honestly can't remember if it was present prior to unlocking and rooting, if they're disabled zRAM when you root, I actually find that to be pretty innovative but I'm genuinely not sure if it was in or off before hand, soz man.
8 pro is a beast, flash Evo X and you'll have unlimited photos storage.The laptop im on now has only 8GB its a trasty workhorse and thats about it.
I currently own the OP8Pro myself with 12/256GB my biggest bottleneck is internal storage.
reset it a couple of months back and already used 112GB.
have a nice day mate, Goodluck at work
Install to inactive slot only shows when you're already rooted. Now that you copied the patched image to the PC, you want to run: fastboot boot nameof.imgHi! I'm stuck here because the tutorial from the second part no longer agrees, namely there is not the option in Magisk "Install to Inactive slot (After OTA)" but only the option "Select and Patch a file"! After I used the APP OnePlus local install apk to install the 4GB firmware that I downloaded with the oxygen updater.
I have so far only unlocked the bootloader, copied the necessary files to the smartphone and created the pachted boot.img with Magistk 25.1 and copied it to the PC.
Tested to update from A.12 to A.13.2nd
Update from 12 stable to 12+ stable whilst retaining root
1. Download the relevant firmware for your device via oxygen updater
2. Open Magisk and remove all the modules you have installed, then reboot
**NOTE- At this point I tend to copy out the whole firmware to my computer, incase I need it in the future, the boot img and patched boot img are at the foot of this guide, I'll always upload the latest firmware as soon as it comes out for the UK/EU model
3. Install the OnePlus local install apk listed below in downloads. Click the cog and select "Local Upgrade" the file should be listed on screen, if not then move the file to the root of your phones storage.
4. Click install and allow it to go through the process
**NOTE- DO NOT REBOOT AT THIS POINT YOU WILL LOSE THE ABILITY TO PATCH ON THE FLY, SIMPLY BACK OUT OF THE SCREEN WHICH SAYS "INSTALLATION COMPLETED. RESTART TO EXPERIENCE NEW FEATURES"
5. Open up magisk and click install (you may see two install buttons, top one is magisk and the bottom is magisk manager, we need the top one)
6. You'll be faced with a screen that has several options, you want to select "Install to Inactive slot (After OTA)" then select "LET'S GO" once complete click reboot.
7. Once your phones booted back up your system / files should all remain as they were and you should have root access.
You can now install all your modules again so long as they're compatible with the firmware you've just updated to.
They're in the OP and also instructions on how to use them, have you managed to change region on your phone?
Lol no mate, just like to be a part of a good community, seeing toxic, or unhelpful users is a bad thing to see. So if I can help change that for the better then I will.
