I am a noob... but I need your help guys or gals...

I have searched the threads and not found any answers to this problem. I am not even sure that I am in the correct thread. I am using a Motorola Droid Turbo(not 2) Verizon and have been rooted for about 6 months. I have used numerous custom ROMs to include Resurrection Remix versions and CMs. I was stoked to see that Marshmallow came out for my model(XT1254). So tonight I installed ResurrectionRemix-M-v5.6.5-20160311-quark. It ran perfectly!! I really like RR's style...Thank you!! After that I installed Pitch Black, nandroid and the BHB27-Kernel-V126-CM-RR-Test-15-M with Slim_zero_gapps.BETA.6.0.build.0.x-20160314-1420. I restarted, flashed the rom and Gapps at the same time using TWRP3.0 as instructed. When I rebooted into recovery mode, in order to install a logo fix, the logo zip runs for about five minutes and freezes. When I try start, nothing happens, except with recovery mode where it freezes after a few minutes. The same with all other options. When I go to Boot Loader Logs my phone says "Invalid boot image header". Also, when I push the power button on any a other setting, an upside down M and the word Android in light blue appears and disappears quickly. What did I do wrong? If I'm not mistaken, if I can just access TWRP, I would flash a clean install of Marshmallow and Slim Gappswith the Lollipop kernal and should be good to go... but I cant even get to the beloved TWRP. I never thought I would miss that piece of software so much...

Please help !! I'm sure the issue has something to do with "Invalid boot image header", but I am at a loss... And Thank You ahead of time for your help with this matter...

Double tap lockscreen notifications

Hey guys, I was wondering if there was a stock feel rom anywhere for the S5 that allows you to access lockscreen notifications with a double tap rather than the weird tap and swipe way of doing it. I don't want to move to a none samsung rom as I really like their camera app and functionality as well as the multi-window and one handed mode features.

Thanks,

What phone should I buy??

So, I want to buy a new phone. but I don't want to spend too much money.. I usually spend around 200$
all I want to be able to do with my phone is listening to music and making photo's( I know sometimes with 5mp and good autofocus you can make quality photo's, as with an 8mp without any autofocus it can sometimes still be hard to get it sharp..)
but also I'd like to have some ROM's available for in the future when I get used to my phone.. :p
can someone advice me on this? I tried looking for phones in the shop and then comparing them with the forums here, but I'm never sure if I really made a good comparison or looked at everything..

MM 6.0.1 Xposed Update!

So, i recently have tried flashing Xposed on the MM 6.0.1 on G920P a.k.a Sprint S6
( ALL_SPT_G920PVPU3CPB6_G920PSPT3CPB6_CL7280193_QB86 64149_REV02_user_low_ship.tar )

I have root and recovery, but Xposed doesnt seem to comply with me.

from multiple sources or builds.
And each Xposed file that i've tried so far that i've been flashing over and over again, rinse and repeat.
( Flash Stock through Odin, Go through setup process on the phone, Reboot Back to Download mode to Flash TWRP, Reboot, Back to TWRP to Flash Xposed, Once flashed i Restart it again, back to the s6 screen to becoming a black screen bootloop, thus having me restart the whole flashing process again )

from android file host website. And Default xda unofficialy build on this website.
xposed-v79-sdk23-arm64-by-romracer-20151218
xposed-v80.0-sdk23-arm64-custom-build-by-wanam-20160211 - ABDYASAR 7.8MB
xposed-v80.0-sdk23-arm64-custom-build-by-wanam-20160211 - SANOC 7.8mb
xposed-v80.0-sdk23-arm64-custom-build-by-wanam-20160211 -WANAM 7.8MB
xposed-v80-sdk23-arm64-by-romracer-20160202

It would go from the Galaxy S6 Boot Menu startup to black screen and bootloop back to the original BootMenu or screen.
NO LED cycles nothing, but i can access Download Mode and Recovery But Updating Nor Uninstalling doesn't do anything to the rom, it just keeps boot looping unless i Flash the Stock back into place.

I'd like to have Xposed working i havent found a version for me that would work for this but i would really appreciate if everyone could help out.

Google location services / google play services

Hi guys,

i try to keep my phone free from google apps but due to requirements of some apps this is not 100% possible. some apps require at least google maps framework. one does not need to install gapps for that. instead you can just copy 2 files to your system (http://ift.tt/1VyHlc5).

i was wondering, if there is a similar possibility to install google location services. again, this is a requirement of some apps like geohash droid. if there is none, i am willing to install google play services, but can anyone explain to me what this software/app does? does it connect to google / phone home / whatever? do i have to register an gmail account in order to activate it?

Thnx

S7 Edge stock contacts app not working without google contacts storage!

I Just got the s7 edge two days ago, prior to getting this phone, I had no experience with rooting, or root apps. I looked into rooting, and found out how useful it can be so today I decided to root for the first time. First thing I installed titanium backup made a backup of all apps and started deleting away any duplicate google apps that I wasn't using. Gmail, Play Videos, books, etc etc, nothing major I thought. I saw contacts storage by google, and right above that I had the stock contacts app, so I thought I wouldn't need it. I uninstalled google contacts storage and my phone right away started acting up, giving me the error, "android.process. acore". I have looked all over google for answers with other phones, and tried everything but nothing has worked.

I have tried:
  • Erasing contacts data and cache
  • Reinstalling google contacts
    Actually it gets stuck on the installation cursor when I click install, and titanium back up won't let me perform another operation BUT when i reboot my phone the app seems to have been installed however the error comes up again. At first I thought there was something wrong with my app, so I tried to reinstall another app and same thing, it got stuck, I suspect the issue is HERE, but I have no clue how to get past this issue. I tried to buy the pro version of titanium back up and I went into prerferences and changed AUTO/direct to AUTO/indirect but still the same issue.
  • LAST OPTION: to flash a stock rom for s7 edge (couldn't find one though)

When contacts storage is uninstalled there is no error but I cannot sync contacts from ANY other account, like my microsoft account. I can't even add contacts into my contacts book manually when it's uninstalled. I haven't tried much when it is installed because the rate that the "anroid.process.acore" error comes up make it fking impossible to do anything on the phone! :mad:

I am really hoping someone on here can help me. I have been looking all night for a solution, browsing forums, but nothing has worked for me. If anyone can link me to a stock rom for s7 edge, I will have to just try that.

Custom ROM with best camera?

Hi all,

Since December I'm using a Redmi Note 2 Prime. I like the phone, but not a fan of Miui.
I tried one of the CM roms on here a few months ago, which was a big improvement in user experience for me. Only the poor image quality and slow focus speed was a big let down.
Is there any non-miui rom out there that equals the stock miui camera's image quality and focus speed?

[HELP] No service after flashing CM13 on LG LS990 (spark) in China

The installation went without any issue but I have no signal so no call/text and no data. However I checked the APN information and they correspond to China Unicom APN.

Do you guys can help me and suggest some solution? I really like how smooth and fast the cm13 is compared to the older version I had so I kinda want to keep it and I feel like fixing this is not a hard thing but I just don't know how...

HDMI-CEC RPi2 with Kodi seems to conflict with Chromecast

My RPi2/Kodi goes nuts when I turn off the TV+AVR. It constantly sends some signals that turn on the AVR, turn off the AVR and the Standby LED from my TV goes crazy, like it is turning on and then immediately off again. There is some fighting going on over something.

Setup: Philips TV connected to Sony AVR that has Chromecast as HDMI1 and RPi2 running latest stable OpenELEC connected to HDMI2. CEC is enabled in Kodi with everything on OFF or IGNORE (like auto power on/off).

Here is the log where I turn off the TV and the crazy starts: http://ift.tt/1VyxBP1

Problem started a few weeks ago or so. I had the OSMC Jarvis build running when it came out without a problem and suddenly the problem started happening. It's the same with the latest OpenELEC (Isengard and Jarvis builds) now.

If I disconnect the Chromecast this "CEC command fire" from Kodi stops. I had this setup running now for 6+ month and it worked without major problems.

Anyone know what is going on here? I asked in the Pulse-Eight/libcec Github but no one answered there.

Any idea where to get a specific part of the Z3C Bezel ?

Hi,

My Z3C must've randomly lost part of the bottom bezel at some point - I still don't understand why and how.
Phone was always in a TPU bumper case so it can't fall off or out. Must've gotten loose and dropped at some point when I removed the bumper to remove the sim card. :(


The part that's missing is the edge part between bottom bezel and SIM card flap.

Phone was just sent in for repair for another issue(vibration more had a loose connection) and I got it back without issues..but that part of the bezel is still missing. Didn't mention it when it was repaired in fear of Sony denying a warranty repair.

Fixing it would be 5s job with super glue....so any idea where and how to get that part ?
Did lots of googling but couldn't find anything.
Only other option I could think of would be buying a broken/dead Z3C and ripping that bezel piece off.

I want to fix the speakers

Upon using this device for few days, I found out how bad the speakers sound. The highs are extremely muffled out. I also found why it sounds this bad. There is a significant bass boost effect already applied, and you can't un-bass-boost it. You can check this in the equalizer settings in Google Play Music. In fact, after I messed around in the eq app I downloaded, turning the highs way up, it sounds significantly better. But still, it can't give the same effect as reverting the bass boost effect. That's why I want to know if there is a way to override the factory settings and revert back the bass boost effect. And yes, I don't mind the root methods.

How to fix battery life problems in stock rom or fix speakerphone echo in cm 12.1?

Hey everybody just bought 2 gs5's from sprint and using them on boost mobile. Everything has been good except battery life. I hear its the android 5.0 update that ruined the gs5's battery life. I tried flashing a bunch of different roms to fix the battery life issue but they all seem to be clockwork mod clones. Once I found that out, I flashed the official version of cm12.1 from their website for the s5 with a boost mobile apn fix. Everything works as it should I'm getting lte and fast performance.

One problem, there's an echo on the other caller when using speakerphone. Only they can hear what it's really doing, but it's still annoying. I pretty much talk on speakerphone exclusively I would like to know if there's a fix for it. I do not have any gapps installed except the bare minimum.

2nd question is, if this is not an option, how to get better battery life on the gs5 sprint? Is downgrading to 4.4.4 a good idea? or should I flash moar 7.0? That's the only rom I haven't tried pretty much. I have tried exodus, blisspop, fusion, cm12.1, cm13 they all seem to be a variant of cm12.1 (except cm13) so I am using the official cm12.1 release (no nightly).

Let me know thanks.

[TUTORIAL] How to unbrick Nexus 7 using NvFlash

Hey everyone.

After recently hard-bricking my Google Nexus 7 2012 (nakasi/grouper) I managed to unbrick it using NvFlash. As the official guide only taught us how to back up the blob files, I had to experiment a bit.
So, after only a few hours of messing with NvFlash commands, I found a solution to unbrick the Nexus 7 by reflashing the bootloader.

IMPORTANT! This guide requires that you have already made a back up of your device's blob files by using AndroidRoot.Mobi's tutorial, located here: http://ift.tt/1WEG7dF

Step 1: Download and Install the APX Drivers
From a powered off state, connect your hard-bricked Nexus 7 to your computer, then hold down the power and volume-up buttons until your computer recognizes your device.
Download and extract the Universal APX Drivers package from the download section below. Open the Windows Device Manager, right-click on anything that resembles your Nexus 7 or an APX device and click Update Driver.
Instruct Device Manager to search for drivers in the recently extracted driver folder.
If Windows displays an error while installing the drivers, you may need to disable Driver Signature Enforcement via Windows Startup Settings.

Step 2: Set Up NvFlash
Download and extract the NvFlash package from the download section below. Open a terminal window in the recently extracted NvFlash folder. Ensure your Nexus 7 is in APX mode (power and volume-up).
Type "wheelie --blob blob.bin" without the quotes. If necessary, replace "blob.bin" with the location of your Nexus 7's blob.bin file.
NvFlash should now load, and the Google boot logo should appear on your Nexus 7.

Step 2.1 OPTIONAL: Boot the system
To test NvFlash's connection with your Nexus 7, type "nvflash -r --download 5 eks.img" without the quotes. If necessary, replace "eks.img" with the location of your Nexus 7's blob.bin file. Your Nexus 7 should reboot into the ROM you previously had installed. Just keep in mind this is a temporary way of bypassing the bootloader to boot the system; the device is technically still bricked.

Step 3: Flash the bootloader
Type "nvflash -r --download 4 bootloader.img" without the quotes. Replace "bootloader.img" with the location of the bootloader found in any Nexus 7 stock factory image. NvFlash will flash the bootloader and boot to Android.

Step 4: Access the bootloader
By now, your Nexus 7 should be unbricked. However, to be on the safe side, I recommend that you reboot into the bootloader and flash whichever factory image you find to be the most stable.

Congratulations! If you completed the above steps and are able to access the bootloader, you have successfully unbricked your Nexus 7. I recommend that in order to prevent hard-bricks in the future, make as many backups of your "blob.bin" and "eks.img" files as you can. Keep them on multiple disks, upload them to the cloud, share them with your Facebook friends or even burn them to a CD. You cannot complete the above steps without them.

See you next time.

Cellular Data Restrictions for specific apps in Android 6

Hi... I'm new to this forum and I'm new to this, but was told this was the place to find an answer to what I was looking for. In short, I want to restrict cellular data on specific apps, for example YouTube. I want my daughter to be able to use YouTube on Wi-Fi, but not cellular. This is and has been a feature on iPhone for years. I was under the impression that Android 6 has this feature, but I can't find any confirmation on this. I know I can use for example 'no root firewall' (her phone will not be rooted), however the issue lies with when you pull down the 'drop down screen', it shows the VPN/firewall. If you click on it, you can disable it. I want to avoid this from happening. (Even if I use an 'applock' type app on a no root firewall, you can still disable the restriction from the drop down screen)

I hope I explained this correctly. Bottom line, I want to be able to pick and choose what apps have access to cellular data? Can the latest version of Android do this and if not, what do you suggest?

Any thoughts, ideas or feedback is appreciated.
Thank you.
J
