hi everyone, i'm here to learn smth new :)

Hey All,
I am a android CAR radio user and I am here in XDA to find a way to updating my device , if there is any possibility that I can upgrade the Android version as mine is stuck at version 9.

MTCE_MX_V3.37_1
PX5


look for a guiding for updates to newer version

11 years ago a friend of mine convinced me to get a Galaxy S2, which I immediately traded in for a Galaxy Note 2(for obvious reasons). I then took a stroll through the wondrous lands of XDA and had my horizons opened like never before. I loved that android with all my heart... Then she died. Since then I haven't really had the funds to afford something worth doing it again... Until now. I fell in love with an LG. Never thought it would happen. Samsung is still my favorite but this Stylo 5 got me. I've had it a while now and I decided it's time to bring out her full potential and see what she's got. So glad to be back. Can't wait for this new adventure.

Thanks for the warm welcome. The name's Rocky.

Nice to meet yall

Hey guys, this is a great forum. I've learnt a lot of knowledge about custom rom here and I successfully install a custom rom intp my new phone recently, I want to learn more here so I decided to register an account today.

Thanks for all your guys great work.

Hi, there XDA!
I haven't seen my note 20 ultra Exynos forum.


Hello: I'm studylinux. I love android and linux. I moved to Lineage O/S on the Oneplus 7 pro and really enjoy it. Happy to be a part of this great community.

Only my registration is new. I have been visiting this site for years but lost/forgot my login creds. Retired and my hobbies are now beekeeping and tinkering with everything electronic. I own two OP6T and am patiently waiting for a TWRP that will work with OOS 11.
Great bunch of folks here..........

I heve read the forum several times but first registration..
I hope to learn a lot and be able to help others.
Thank you

Hey Everyone, I bumped in on XDA when I was looking for custom rooms for my Device about a year ago, and fell in love with this forum since😍
All the developers here are simply amazing and all the works here exceptional. Finally created an XDA account after a long while. Thank you guys🙌

Hi guys. I´m looking for info about the Wanbo T2 Max. Thanks.

Hello Everyone,

I am new in the developer's field and want to explore & learn more with your guys.
From my graduation days, I am a techy guy and interested in coding and finally, I started it.

Thank you in advance.

Hello, I'm visiting the site for a while, I love it. I like the spirit of sharing knowledge, and many times I manage to run out of troubles thanks to many tips found in these pages.

Thanks to everybody, happy to be part of the community!

Hi . There is a great community here! Nice to meet you all! I am 42 years old and i need to replace the battery for an old Sony Z4 tablet to make my son happy again. He can't play brawl stars :) My problem is that i cannot find one

Hi! New on xda forum.
I'm italian, and quite interesting in phones and internet and tecnologies.

Hi guys. I´m around to learn and share, like iphone and tech.

Hi, my name is Adrian and I test ROMs from XDA :)

Hi, I'm T'Challa I came up with XDA when there was newer. I was more of a phone enthusiast back then with Android. In the early 2000s on xda they used to let us trade phones. I totally understand why they stopped doing it. I was on for a while after that but I just got bored with Android phones and stop flashing them and such. I think my old account got deactivated. I'm looking to maybe start back up as a hobby.

Hi! I am Chris and I am from Greece. Interested in discovering how to get the max out of my new android head unit. :)

Hi everyone, here's Mike, I'm amateur programist, I have some trips with my phones, used to I was in love with HTC SPV M3000, nowadays are different phones with different troubles , I wish you all good vibes with your gadgets :)

Hi, hope you all don't mind me jumping aboard ! There's a wealth of knowledge in here!

Call me Nepoleon,

I want to be a foss android developer (learning how to use a text editor at the moment), and maybe will also make new custom roms that can be used by most phones and lock the bootloader for better privacy.

Hello to all of you and welcome to the best site, XDA!
Enjoy your stay

Hello Oswald,

And yes, thanks, after rooting my XZ1c using Magisk and patched boot.img or kernels.zip, even if tried, my bootloader is still seen as unlocked, but that's not a real issue

Right now, I've been able to install TWRP using their application and root, and then, LineageOS, and I'm right now trying to create a software raid 0 (Android is derived from Linux, and it's possible in Linux)

I've just don't really seen a guide on this here, but, I've no needed data for now, I still have to restore, and after chrooting on Android, or seeing its partitions from any Linux, partitionning and creating a software raid could be great if possible, and as far as I know, I've no real risk to try

I'll try this evening and then reinstall LineageOS if needed and restore my backed up data:
Switching from 32Gb of internal storage to a raid 0 of 64Gb with my sd card, and keeping the other part for external data, with why not symbolic links of Android user data to my microSD should be possible on any Linux (With Link2SD for example, and Andoid is based on Linux kernel), I'll only have to redeclare my partitions and fstab-like entries

I don't know if it's possible, but creating a guide on this Linux manipulation will be a good idea if so, I didn't found a real one on XDA for now (but at least, I've just found this one, on how to use parted on Android with adb shell)

Hi, I'm new here. I have used XDA to understand some techy things that are hard to find. Right now I'm trying to understand firmware builds for the new Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G.

Hey All,

I just installed Fire Toolbox v25.2 today. I ran into an issue with the install as I was on OS 7.3.2.2. I clicked through all of the error messages. Fire Toolbox relaunched, I clicked on the Google Services option from the FT home screen and voila it loaded completely. Phew, so glad as I was not looking forward to troubleshooting the issue.

I do have a question. Should I not allow the Fire HD 10 version 11 to OS updates to occur going forward in time?

Here I am, some years after first discovering these fine forums, where I’ve been successfully walked through restoring, refreshing, and repairing the phones of friends and family

Now I own a fine Nexus 5, which I am learing the ins and outs of. Bear with me if I ask stupid questions (though I will try to avoid it). My primary devices are iOS, the last android I used daily was the Nexus 4 (a lovely little guy).

Fello, You may call me Beau.
I'm Jamaican, a digital artist, and an aspiring game designer. My life is admIttably a rather- poor one. I'm mildly autistic, and have an interest in games and technology, despite only having an old Windows 7 laptop.

I finally caved in and joined XDA on-and-off reading for years, because I need help with flashing an off-brand phone "LOGIC X50" because a neighbor managed to forget their password, there seems to be no way to bypass Google FRP on it, and I have little idea where to start. 😅

    Hi all,

    Well, I'm a "Linux" and "opensource" technology fan.
    Even if I consider myself as an eternal newbee, I try to promote the world of opensource solutions to the general public.

    I'm doing a lot of installations of Linux distributions (Ubuntu / Xubuntu / Linux Mint) on PCs to people around me. I do the same (when I'm able to) on smartphones and tablets by installing LineageOS & /e/OS ROMs, giving them a second life!
    This website has been a great help to me on many occasions.

    I'm also an active member of Ubuntu Touch/UBports community.

    I don't have any technical computing knowledge and I'm not a developer at all, but I like to follow all those exciting projects.

    I'm pretty happy now to be member of the XDA forum community.

    Best Regards,

    Stanwood

    Hello everyone I have just started my project to acquire and use a de-Googled phone. The first mistake I made was to buy a phone I thought was on the list of supported Lineage OS devices. Then finding it is not yet supported I set it aside for future use since it is common, a Motorola G Play (2021) and can expect support. I have now found a local used Motorola g5 Plus that is in good shape and started to get the software from the Lineage OS site. But GREAT DISappointment ensued when the model numbers listed for the phone run only in different series than that which the phone displays!
    Namely I have what appears to be an "in betweenie" with regard to LineageOS supported releases! Here's all I could find on their sites.

    Used to make cook custom roms in the PPC era. I loved XDA devs! Ive been so busy with work I hadnt had time to enjoy my hobby with this community. Im back looking to flash some android roms and possibly make my own too!

    Hi. I am new at XDA. I am very happy that i stumbled around this good community. I like to experiment around with phones

    So now about me.

    I am Franzi, and i am from Austria.
    I use a Samsung Galaxy A32 (A325F) as my daily driver, which is rooted and runs the normal firmware, probably changing to PixelExperienceGSI in around a week or so.

    If anyone also wants to change their OS to PixelExperience on their A32, here are some links that will help you:

    Hello... im joining xda to find solution to update my samsung s10 plus to latest version or at least latest security patch. As i'm a beginner, i kindly request assistance..

    Sick, sick, SICK of bloatware, and not having complete control over my Android. It's getting harder and harder just to keep apps disabled and in forced stop mode since switching to a Samsung. I can't take away permissions of Samsuung and Google apps to track my location, body sensors, microphone, camera...blah, blah blah!

    I'm very security and privacy conscious.

    I'm sick of Google, Samsung, Facebook, my cellular carrier, Microsoft... ALL OF THEM forcing and tricking me into allowing them to track me and collect data on me. My life is none of their business!

    I'm in the process of figuring out Linux and I've finally made the decision to root one of my old phones before doing the same with my current phone. That's why I'm here. I'm going to have a LOT questions. So thank you for being here and thank you in advance for helping me figure all of this out!:)

    Well hi all, I'm 'new', but not really that new, since I've been searching through XDA topics on many occasions for quite a few years now. Not sure why it took me so long to actually make an account, but here I am.
    So about me - half geek, half creative, F/LOSS enthusiast for over 20 years, full time Linux user since 2006, interested in way to many subjects to ever become a specialist in any of them within at least a dozen of life spans. Hence I don't think I'll ever be able to call myself a developer, but hey, we'll see ;-)

    HI you guys are awesome

    More than anything, XDA is a community, and we're all here for different reasons.

    Some are here to mod their phone--some joined just to ask a question. Or perhaps, like many, you joined so long ago, you have no idea why you're here (which is totally fine! we've been around for almost a decade). :cool: And we're in the process of making XDA more useful to everyone here now that we've moved to much better forum software.

    But we'd love to know your XDA story: why are you here, and who are you? What's your day job, what phones do you have, where do you live, what do you like to do for fun? We'd love to get to know you!

    Also, be sure to spend some time filling out your profile:


    And also adding what phones you have to your inventory:


    :cowboy: thanks and welcome. I'm one of the guys in charge and my DMs are always open if you ever want to chat or even complain.

    Go ahead and make a new thread in this forum instead of replying to this post.

    Hello everyone, i'm back here after a long, long time

    I used to read alot here when i was 10 - 15 but I think i switched to iOs during 2010s and i never really had my phone in the center of my occupations so i bought some macbook & iphone and i started to learn code. (mostly js)

    I would be really happy to help users here, if i can, and discuss about my new device. ;) 2020s seems to be redditable as **** tbh, the xda lost kid became some kind of creative dev who's going back to the r00t

    Thank you for everything I have read here over the last years!

    My story? I'm not paying over $150 for a phone anymore. I am sick and tired of companies bricking phones and taking my cash when they're perfectly usable and up to spec. I registered a few minutes ago as I find this forum to be great for mainly the old(er) Samsung devices I buy. You flash a custom ROM on one of those old babies and you have yourself a new phone. My next plan to is to hunt down a Note 7, stick a safer S7 edge battery in it (as it's compatible) and have fun.
