By the way guys, I have found that reinstalling the Google services and Google Framework APKs did something, and certain google things that were not working before that, worked properly after. Just see what exact versions you have and download the same ones from apkmirror or somewhere else. I have also downloaded the latest Play store from there too as it was not updating on its own. For instance, I think this finally fixed my connection with my Ticwatch 3 Pro Ultra. ( Wear OS)
Same thing here play store stopped working all of a sudden tryied installing un installing. Would you please tell me exactly what you did Thanks

Vivo X Fold
Anyone know how to get the ad blockers working on Samsung browser on this phone? They all stop working after you open and close the browser. Thanks

I had a problem creating a Vivo account with my email so just an FYI use a different email if it happens. I don't know why but it worked for me 😎👍

Did you get a pop up message saying that since the SIM card was not from mainland China that you may not get 5G services? Just heard that some UK SIM cards trigger this warning
I got that pop up here in the US but I get 5G mostly 80% of the time. If it’s not 5G it will switch 4G but I work close to the airport so it might interfere with the towers. I think it automatically pops up because it's a Chinese and not global rom. Hope that helps 😎👍

Those two. If anyone is having issues with google contacts syncing, you can try also reinstalling Google Contacts sync. Just click on the current one ang get the same version.

Eventually nova launcher has its issues with fullscreen gestures. Is there any way to install new icons and fonts. The vivo ones are chinese and ugly:)

How can we change fonts, I only see chinese alternatives from the settings, the current fonts are showing turkish characters in bold :)

I'm reluctant to sell mine, I really do love it, but I've been locked into apple for so long it's almost impossible to switcht to anything else.

Look how amazing it looks 😍

So does the pixel launcher actually. I thought it was the pixel launcher installed with root. But if it is happening on NOVA Launcher it tells me there's a bug in the gestures for Vivo X Fold. As a work around I used Classic Navigation which is fine I suppose

    Well, it seems that I have skipped the last update and got a more recent one. Now all apps can be added to the sidebar and can be put into floating windows, which is just great.
    i went to their forum, nagged about their OS and lacked of multiwindows features and finally they listened.

    I have had a chance now to try the Fold 4, Vivo X Fold, the Oppo Find N and the Xiaomi Mi Fold 2. Overall, I think hardware wise, the Vivo takes the cake. Software wise, the Xiaomi is much more usable as an English-only device (except the stock keyboard). The build quality is solid and it came with a really nice case in the box. The Oppo offered the least amount of customization, but the small form factor has its place and was really great on a recent trip when space in pockets was tight. I am most disappointed with the Fold 4, as it barely seems different than the Fold 3, which was a lukewarm device for me in the first place. Vivo will gladly be my daily driver.

    Could you please provide the link to the exact one? Ultrasonic fingerprint scanners are picky especially with glass tempered screens and I definitely don't want the UV glued ones.
    Here you go, I bought the Edge glue.

    Finally successfully root my X Fold.
    System Version is 15.7, here's my original boot.img without patch, hope this is useful to you guys.

    And this is the 15.7 OTA package link which I intercept by wireshark.

    And is there anyone know how to connect Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 to Vivo X fold?
    Tried for a few hours, but didn't get any solution.

    Hey guys, two days ago I got my X fold delivered. Big thanks to Wonda Mobile for a 3 days delivery from Asia to UK!
    Interestingly enough I am getting notifications on I think everything with dark mode enabled! Have not deleted any of Vivo's apps and I have not disabled anything. The only place I don't see notifications, other than calls and smses is the always on display.
    I'm in London on Smarty (runs on the 3UK network) and have 5G everywhere I had it with my S21 Ultra (it is even better I think) getting more than 700mbs
    I have checked and all UK operators are running their 5G networs on bands supportd by the phone.
    The only major problem I have is the connection to my Tickwatch 3 pro ultra gps. The Wear OS app (from play store) will connect to the watch but not go through the setup proces after selecting my google account. Just spins and nothing... Tried with the Chinese Ware OS app but during setup it tells me that for decices otside of China I should use the one from the play store. Any help on this would be helpful.
    Regarding notifications I just went and enabled everything in app info notifications and permissions sections for the apps I need and also in the single permissions section.
    Ask me for specific things and I might be able to test them for you guys.
