@flar2 Would it be possible to add lzma compression into your kernel? I am guessing its not currently included as you like to stay close to stock. I am trying to get twrp working with the fastboot boot method but ot clearly states in the twrp docs:
Please note that you cannot install this on stock, unless you are running a kernel that supports LZMA compression.
So was hoping you could either add it in or bake me a test kernel with it to see if this will allow twrp to be used.
Significant update to EX Kernel Manager version 5.70. Now you can choose a directory for kernel downloads and backups. This will make it a lot easier to access your kernel backups and kernel downloads.
This required a lot of refactoring and new code, so let me know if there are problems.
Also, please check out my new app, it's the ultimate apk tool, app manager and backup solution. You can tag and backup your apps, including data. It can install, analyze and extract split APKs, XAPK, APKM, etc. It will show you the most detailed info about any app or apk, including the full manifest.
I need to unroot my Pixel 3A XL and reset it to the factory settings and lock the boot loader so I can trade it in. It is currently on Android 10 Build QQ1A.191205.011 and I used ElementalX. I never took the more recent OTA updates. So, I am wondering do I need to download the newest stock file for Android 10 or the newest from for Android 11?
Also, it was rooted with Magisk a number of years ago. I don't know a whole lot about this whole process, so was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. Can I just uninstall Magisk from inside the app to remove root?
I have seen some guides but they are generally older and I am not really sure which files I need to download.
