The weakness is actually in the fingerprints themselves and not the way Nexus 5x implements it. Fingerprints are less secure because they cannot be changed like a password and cannot be revoked if compromised. Fingerprints are also left everywhere such as, at a glass. They can then be captured and reproduced. Think about this: Android uses a touch screen. ...

I had this issue, but only with the Alarm media files. Use a file explorer, like ES File Explorer: Using the ES File Explorer, navigate to the folder you have place your custom alarm media files. Click on the file you want, and in the "Open with" prompt select "ES Media Player" Open the menu in the top right, and pick "Set ringtone" (the entry with a bell ...

Turns out that some old adb tooling was in my PATH variable, so I was using an old version of fastboot.. It all worked well when I used the right version! Will accept this as an answer in 2 days.

It won't work with slimport! The Nexus 5x has a USB type c port. Also google has stated that the 5X will not work with USB type c to HDMI adapters. The only way currently to get the video signal from the 5X or 6P is to use screen mirroring with a supported device (chromecast or Nexus player).

Surprisingly, the analogous trick doesn't work with alarm tones. I added an alarm tone to /sdcard/Alarms but the alarm clock app doesn't notice it or add it to the list of available alarms on my Nexus 5x. (To be sure my Samsung audio clip was OK, I tested it by putting it into the /sdcard/Ringtones folder, where it works as described here by others.) ...

Okay I finally found something which helped me. The Media Feature Pack for Windows 10 N & KN (all editions) alias KB-3010081 is for the first version of Windows 10. But for the Windows 10 with the big update we had a few time ago, there is an update which supersedes the KB-3010081. This is the KB-3099229 : https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/...

Depending on what version of the Nexus 5X you have it might not have the same WiFi bands as your router. I'd force your router to band 11 just to test it out. Your router also might be set to a security standard your phone can't recognize.

Currently, No. Locking the bootloader actually requires a wipe as well now so you would have to back up your device and then restore after locking. I was in the same scenario with my Nexus 6P and as I didn't need the bootloader unlocked any more i have locked it. I used a combination of adb backup, copying files manually off my device and the built in ...

I'm not an expert in this field, but reading the explanation of infrared thermometer on Wikipedia, I don't think general Android pdevice has sufficient component to do the reading. Here's the explanation from Wikipedia: By knowing the amount of infrared energy emitted by the object and its emissivity, the object's temperature can often be determined.... ...

I have found a app called Vysor that has done the job.

If you click on the 'Other' section (or the 'Explore' option at the bottom of the screen) it will allow you to browse the files/folders and delete any that you do not need. The 'other' data is actually just files on your device which it does not know how to categorise e.g. downloaded files, files that are used by apps (which are stored outside of the /...

This worked for me (without having to download the media feature pack). On your phone (after connecting to PC): Open the notifications bar. Tap USB connection notification (USB for charging) Select PTP-option (this one worked for me at least) Done! You can now open your phone on your pc.

Yes. Do as the hint says: grab the corresponding factory image (in your case MTC20F) here, extract vendor.img from it (you might need 7-Zip), then flash it in fastboot mode via fastboot flash vendor PATH_TO_VENDOR_IMG. Reboot and you should be fine. Be sure to also update the bootloader (fastboot flash bootloader PATH_TO_BOOTLOADER_IMG) and baseband (...

The coverage issue will have something to do with power usage. When comparing 5 GHz battery drain vs. 2.4 GHz, a lot depends on the coverage you are in with respect to each frequency band. 5 GHz (for the same power) lacks the range of 2.4 GHz. Objects (depending on material) can obstruct 5 GHz more than 2.4 GHz (sometimes not depending on material). So,...

ADB devices was detecting the phone, but fastboot devices wasn't. I had to do the following to get it to work on Win 7 64bit: Reboot Win7 and Press F8 on boot screen and select: Disable Driver Signing Boot phone into bootloader Device Manager you should see an Unknown Device popup Manually install the driver by selecting: android > android adb (screenshot) ...

Google search on XDA forums shows both phones support OTG Nexus 6P. USB OTG. Shows connectors and retailer info Nexus 5X Nexus 5X OTG support from Google product forums USB standards from USB.org also has pictures of three types of connectors and general info

It was a permissions thing for me. Upgraded no problem and it was all OK. Factory started and although I could see the file in notifications it wouldn't play as a message tone. Settings, apps, messages, added storage to permissions.......happy me!

The LG Nexus 5X is the first device with Android 6.0(.1) so it's running SDK23. X86 is only for x86 processors, which except for the ASUS Zenfone, no one is using. ARM is for usual 32-bit ARM processors (and 32-bit ROMs). This was the standard about 1/2 to 1 year ago. ARM64 is the newest generation of 64-bit ARM processors and ROMs supporting this ...

Under Security and under Smart Lock, go to Trusted voice and check the option that says Always on. That's how I got "OK Google" to work when my phone is locked. I use the fingerprint lock as well.

Although some Android devices are capable of true remote control, i.e. where you can control your phone from your computer, Nexus 5X isn't one of them. From your computer you can only view the Nexus 5X screen, as you self noted, but unfortunately you can't use TeamViewer to control the Nexus 5X device.

I've found the root cause for awake state - it is Viber. To detect this I've completely removed all third party software and left only one came from Google (my Nexus 5X comes only with Google and no bloatware). So adding apps one by one I was checking the issue appearance after every. The issue back after adding Viber and immediately has gone after removing ...

You generally need the latest vendor image but since we (CM), unlike Google, support all CM13 devices using the same code branch the build number you see in Settings -> About doesn't always match up with the build number you see for the stock images. Solution: Run 'getprop | grep fingerprint' on a terminal on the device or via adb shell. From the output, ...

Charging a new battery for x hours before use is a "legacy hangover" from the days when Nickel Cadmium batteries were used. Those batteries had a "memory effect". As a result, over a period of time, they "remembered" lesser battery capacity than rated capacity. To prevent this, it was advised to always fully charge these batteries This is not the case with ...

I had a similar issue to Vivek. This is what I tried and worked for me. Before attempting, SEE NOTES. This assumes you are rooted. So first I went to google playstore and downloaded a build.prop editor. I focused on these attributes for my Moto X Pure: ro.product.model=XT1575 ro.product.brand=motorola ro.product.name=clark_retus ro.product.device=clark ro....

Android depiction of battery consumption isn't very accurate- see How does Android calculate battery consumption by apps? and I am not aware how much it has improved with the latest version. Having said that, the discrepancy in battery percentage as shown is large and it could be due a) Inaccuracy of measurement b) Wakelocks (see tag wakelock for more ...

I had the same issue with my Nexus 6P. Tried everything but nothing worked. Visited service centre and got it fixed. They told some hardware issues with the fast charging chip. I read somewhere that flashing the firmware again using Fastboot on the phone solves this issue for some users.I didn't worked for me. Might you wanna try. Good Luck!!

Your device comes with USB Type C which is equipped to handle higher power for charging and hence that is recommended over using the USB C to A conversion USB 3.1 – Type-C Connector ....Rather than using four-pins as in the classic type-A and type-B, the type-C connector has 24 pins and is reversible, meaning it can be plugged in either way. It supports ...

From XDA Developer's [GUIDE] Unlock/Root/Flash for Nexus 5X, I went away and: Downloaded the OTA zip file Installed the Android SDK tools, connected my device and rebooted it into TWRP Then went to Advanced -> ADB Sideload Then from the command prompt, typed "adb sideload /path/to/OTA/zip/file" and hit enter It took a few minutes to 100%, then I rebooted my ...
