Theoretically, a factory-reset wipes data only while any deep seated malware that injects itself into the /system partition isn't wiped. To that extent you have a valid concern.
Fortunately, you have a Nexus device. Google provides factory images for Nexus/Pixel devices (here). You can flash the factory image for your device following instructions on that ...
(tested on 6.0.1 on 2016-05-10 and 7.1.1 on 2017-02-09)
Flash TWRP 3.0
Root your system with superuser.zip
Download ES file explorer
Remount /system to be read-write
Goto /system and edit build.prop
On the last line enter: net.tethering.noprovisioning=true
Then, adb shell settings put global tether_dun_required 0
try removing these files also
Instead of removing files, appending the filenames with some random extension would be better. So, if anything goes wrong we can revert the changes.
eg: user.db -> user.db.xyz or xyx_user.db
I faced the same error too and this worked for me.
My understanding is that this is controlled by the google+ app.
according to this xda thread try:
Open Setting -> Apps -> All -> Contacts Storage -> Clear Data
Open Google+ -> Settings -> Your account (under Account Settings) -> Contacts -> Keep contacts up to date
In addition to the accepted answer, by flashing the official image and applying bootloader lock you have 100% spyware-free guarantee.
This because Android devices with a locker bootloader won't boot if the boot loader is not genuinely signed by the manufacturer, and the public key is buried in the firmware.
It appears that some keyboards offer something under their keyboards (e.g. a special key) to switch keyboards. However others, such as the Google Keyboard do not.
However, what I have discovered is that whenever the on-screen keyboard is up, no matter which keyboard it is, there is a new virtual button at the bottom right of the screen with the icon of a ...
This is for Google Camera v3.0 and up:
Open Google Camera app
Swipe from right to left for Video mode.
In the top right, touch the icons to turn features on or off:
Slow motion: Set slow motion to 120 fps or turn off slow motion.
Note: On Nexus 6P devices, there's an option for 240 fps. 240 fps produces a higher quality slow motion video than 120 fps, ...
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
There is no software fix because it uses physically different pins on the headphone connector. The hardware simply does not support it. There are plenty of good android compatible headphones out there though.
The Apple EarPods are working on my Nexus 6P perfectly, save the inline volume controls. The microphone button pauses music on a short press, and skips the current track to the next on pressing it twice in rapid succession. Long pressing it open Google Voice Search.
Based on the screenshot, there's an error saying cp: write error: no space left on device. It seems there's no space in /system partition of the device.
Flashing Xposed Framework would make use of the device's /system partition.
In case there are apps or anything bloating up the /system partition, try removing them and freeing some space from unused apps, ...
The Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P use USB Type-C for charging, so not all cables and chargers will work with these phones. We recommend using the charger that came with your Nexus.
Also corroborated here for LG Nexus 5X
Decent comparison of Type C Charging. Point to note is that current supplied can go upto 3A unlike ...
You do need to install security updates incrementally, as each release has its own /system image that has had all the previous patches already applied to it. When installing an update, most of the time, /system is completely wiped and then replaced with the new image in your update file.
About the negative performance, a common issue is that the update is ...
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:
I did some research and basically you need to
give it a few days, if that doesn't help try flashing it.
Here's a guide https://www.gottabemobile.com/2016/09/09/how-to-install-android-7-0-nougat-right-now/
You got an ac adapter meant for a different part of the globe as wbogacz stated, but if you still have the adapter from the Nexus or well any device just about you should be able to use it with no problems. You may be able to look in the packaging and many ac adapters sent these days can be converted (usually the plug face slides away and you ...
From what I understand, you said initially that the phone was unlocked and rooted, added to that, since you get the warning message during boot, the bootloader is also unlocked (evidence is the unlocked symbol that comes up at the bottom center of the screen). I used to run into this trouble while rolling back to stock and clearing userdata and cache before ...
On Nexus 6P the bootloader relocking method is contains the Factory Reset, there is nothing to do.
If you are trying to relock your device you should see a screen like this: image.
If you want to keep your files and data you should make a backup and when your device bootloader agian locked you restore it.
This is a normal behaviour but for example on OP2 ...
It is quite odd that it isn't syncing across devices. I know that recommending an application may not always be the best solution but I did just try Personal Dictionary Backup on my Xperia XZ running 7.0 and it was able to backup and restore my personal dictionary.
Do keep in mind that it backs up to a .dat file on your internal storage. The folders name ...
I suspect this strange behaviour is caused by some setting that requires developer options to be enabled, but itself is not deactivated for instance USB debugging., transitions/animations etc.. (this has been observed to enable developer options in some LG builds typically when the battery saving feature disables animations at 15% )
As a workaround try this:...
There is some critical error for the new android Oreo (for me is nexus 6p) which make a system crash on the desktop (google now launcher) and on settings (you can't open app list). It is can be created by any of your applications which you need to find. So only way to remove the app, in this case, it is to use a google play application or maybe some other ...
Boot.img has the kernel
in it (linked answers explain what they do). They are the first components that boot your device and subsequently OS comes into picture
Some reasons not to flash the boot.img meant for one OS on to another OS:
Hardware is usually different and so are the drivers for it. Which means hardware components may fail to ...
It seems like you are facing the unfortunate end for your device. I personally have gone through 3 of these devices that fell victim to the same sudden BLOD (Boot Loop of Death). You have a few options at this point:
Get yourself on the list to be part of the class action lawsuit against Huawei and Google.
Contact Google or Huawei (don't have the link for ...
Capturing and recognizing your fingerprint must happen in a secure part of the hardware known as a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE).
Hardware access must be limited to the TEE and protected by an SELinux policy.
Fingerprint data must be secured within sensor hardware or trusted memory so that images of your fingerprint aren't accessible....
Whenever you can input text, a "Select keyboard" notification should appear:
Select keyboard notification / default keyboard (click images for larger variants)
Clicking on that will bring you to a screen with all of your enabled keyboards for selection (second screenshot). Selecting one of these options will set it as the default keyboard anytime your ...
Adapters vary across the globe, and there is a World Standard body to differentiate them. You were shipped the incorrect one.
This is a Type "I" adapter, mainly used in SE Asia, comes in styles with 2 (yours) or 3 pins.
This style is used in Australia, New Zealand, China & Argentina.
See here for the different types of adapters.
You can reset the list of authorized devices by doing:
Under Debug Group select "Revoke USB Debug Authorization" (I'm translating from italian but should be something similar)
Unplug your phone and go to your launcher
Plug the cable to pc
Check when you connect the cable that Data transfer is enabled (from the notification ...
