Another "uglier" workaround involves using terminal , but it has an advantage if you already have terminal installed in your device. Simply type ip neigh in terminal and you should see an output showing connected devices' ip addresses as well as mac address (but it looks a bit cluttered though) See screenshot: Screenshot (click image for larger ...

Some basics first: NoGAPPS is deprecated and got replaced by its successor, µG (read: microG). µG includes the core (basically, GServices) and also UnifiedNlp. No GService replacements will support the Google License API. That's much too hot an area. While we all love dentists, we better not see them working on us (replace "dentists" by "lawyers" in this ...

I had this problem. I'd half installed Pinyin so continual prompting for a login account. Go to Google play store and search for Google Pinyin Input. When that appeared there was an option to uninstall it (because it had already been installed).

Manually granting permission For rooted devices, there is a way to inject a specific permission inside the /data/system/packages.xml file, which details any and all installed apps, alongside their signatures and permissions. The permission mentioned above is <item name="android.permission.WRITE_MEDIA_STORAGE" granted="true" flags="0" />, which is ...

In short: Nothing to worry about, unless you have downloaded an app suggested by the pop-up. In More detail: It's an old issue. You visit a normal website, and suddenly you see pop-ups telling you that your phone has a virus. It's called scareware. It's basically "ads" which scare you into downloading their "anti-virus" apps. Many times, the apps you ...

Most of the solutions known to me require root (as I noted in comments). However there is a third-party application that seems to be able to handle this task as well. Hotspot manager claims to be able to monitor all connected clients on the hotspot. It gives the MAC Address as well as IP address of connected clients Some other features include: Managing ...

This is a because Pixel (and also Nexus) devices do not support app badges. More specifically the launcher does not. It is the launcher that must support them rather than the app itself. Your Galaxy S4 supported this because Samsung built support for them into their launcher. You could install a new launcher (Nova launcher supports them via an additional ...

Android uses dnsmasq as its DHCP/DNS server (up to Pie). So create the configuration file /etc/dnsmasq.conf with option dhcp-host=<MAC>,<IP> (1). Root is required to place this file. Since /etc is a symlink to /system/etc, /system partition needs to be mounted R/W. Make sure you don't break dm-verity if enabled on your device. Set permissions: ...

You can try to achieve this by automation. I prefer MacroDroid being easy to learn and free I don't have Nougat , so can't test it. I also recall reading that dnd mode is behaviour is different compared to Marshmallow ( and don't remember how), so this may need further tweaking based on your revert The way I understood your need and accordingly configured ...

As far as I can tell, Android OS (sometimes called OS + others) is not actually a real application to say. Basing this on one data application I've used it is explained; It is a "catch all" pseudo-application accounting for the difference between global usage (displayed in the main screen) and the sum of all installed applications usages. Initially ...

All apps you've bought via your Google account are bound to that. Not only they cannot be updated without your account then (which is where they're bound to), but some of them will even stop working if you remove the account (those which use Google License Check to verify a valid license whenever you start them). And no, there's no way of transferring ...

Searching the web gave me a clue: While before Android 7 one could easily flash a custom recovery without fearing side-effects, starting with Android 7 the system enforces DM Verity. That is, at a very early stage in the boot process, the system checks whether any partition was "tampered" with – which in my case meant the /recovery partition. As far as I ...

OK, so I figured it out. For posterity, here's the process I went through. I took a complete backup using TWRP before I made anything any worse. I was fortunate in that I had a pretty clear idea what I had done to make everything go wrong (restore "App+Data"). That meant I could do it again and try to get a sense of what the app had done. I used find on the ...

Stock android only supports mounting FAT32 drives as portable storage if mounted system-wide (r/w). Supported partitions may vary depending on device to device. Its dependent on manufacturer/customized Rom maker to provide system-level drivers for volumes of different formats. As your are using lineage OS (cm fork) it might be provided. And in case it isn'...

If 'journaling' is a requirement, then the EXT family (preferrably ext4) mighy be your only choice. Otherwise exFAT is the best. Just FYI, data safety depends more on your hardware rather than software (assume there's no malware), including filesystems. Any FS on a bad drive fails, and any FS on a good drive makes few differences. It is definitely sure that ...

After thoroughly debugging this issue, I've found the cause. It seems to be a bug with how Adoptable Storage is implemented on my ROM. Any apps that are stored on external storage are not shown in the Device Administrators screen. When using Titanium Backup, I came across the same issue as newly installed applications were not visible. As Android ...

Had this problem a couple days ago. Solved it by bypassing the SetupWizard. Steps to skip: Tap the top-left corner of the screen. Tap the top-right corner of the screen. Tap the bottom-right corner of the screen. Tap the bottom-left corner of the screen. Repeat this until the SetupWizard skips.

Unfortunately, there is not a way to do this with stock Android. There may be OEM (Samsung, LG, etc) features that allow this but I'm unsure if they exist. There is an app that allows you to lock Media Volume, though. It's called Rocker Locker: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tomwandroid.rockerlocker&hl=en [Edit] The above app ...

Yes. Since Android 7.1 the method is a little different (not gonna mention the old method here) - fire up adb shell then use the command settings put global captive_portal_https_url **site domain here**. In the past g.cn (Google's remaining Chinese domain) worked alright, but since Nougat for better reliability I'm using one hosted by V2EX: captive.v2ex.co/...

You can try using ip command. How it compares to ifconfig Edit: To set up an IP address you can use: ip address add 192.168.0.77 dev eth0 or the long form ip addr add 192.168.0.77/24 broadcast 192.168.0.255 dev eth0 look up current config using ip addr show

Starting from Android 6.0(API level 23), app permissions are listed as normal permission and dangerous permission Depending on how sensitive the area is, the system may grant the permission automatically, or it may ask the user to approve the request.

Reducing the gap also reduces the sizes. If you are using the default launcher Trebuchet, you should also see Custom in the Grid Size settings. Clicking it allow to set the number of icons per columns and rows. Select a high number for colums and rows. Confirm your choice, then go back to the Home screen and rearrange the icons. You will be able to fit as ...

Before KitKat, this worked well: am broadcast -a android.intent.action.MEDIA_MOUNTED -d file:///sdcard The above command doesn't work now, obviously. I beg to differ with this view. This works perfectly well on my stock Android 7.1.1 (Nexus 6) having only Internal Storage. It is limited to system applications, so you can run it as user 1000 or as ...

Yes and no It does take energy to reboot, but it isn't the phone rebooting that takes this energy. The energy is lost through hystersis which the battery algorithm is accounting for. Krexington_III, who worked for a summer as a fuel gauging engineer for a major cellphone manufacturer in northern Europe and says: Hysteresis is simply the fact that once ...

Sounds like encryption is blocking the recovery from accessing the internal storage. Try using the latest version here.

There is only lockscreen pattern that locks the phone for authentication. You don't have a system lockscreen separately. Same applies whether you are using numeric PIN as password based lockscreen. If your device is encrypted, the pattern or PIN is the basis for encryption of key generated by system
