As suspected by OP, the hardware is 64 bit but it is running in 32 bit mode as mentioned in this reddit which in turn refers to geek bench for proof. Apps like AIDA 64 can reveal this Source Also Antutu, if you have it installed, as it is removed from Play Store As general info, see How to find ARM processor version on android device?

Clearing cache of apps is one of the to-do things if your app is laggy, unresponsive or misbehaving. It's absolutely safe, unlike clearing data of apps which makes you lose all the app data, accounts, settings etc. For 1,4 a definite yes. For 2, 3 it is no. Re: safety being app dependent, it is possible that the cache is used for storing data and in the ...

Open the Google Settings app on your device (called Google Settings or Settings, depending on your device). Scroll down and tap Google. Tap Ads. Turn on Opt out of interest-based ads or Opt out of Ads Personalization. Reset the ad id, or user id. This is the only thing I've been able to find on the subject. Like you, I run a background app while doing ...

I found the answer and am posting it here for anyone that's having the same issue. Open the calendar app, go to three dots at the top, select settings, go to set default reminders, set both to none. That should stop the anniying pop up. I am still looking for a way to rearrange color order. Apparently they will let you do it with stickers but not with ...

You need to check whether there is another phone (in this case with the same model) that used the same account by going to Google Dashboard. From there select Android. The number of devices using the account will be shown and listed. If there are 2 Samsung SM-J327A models, to differentiate between them, you can go here to use Find my device and compare the ...

dmesg calls C library's klogctl wrapper function for kernel's syslog syscall which reads kernel's ring buffer by accessing /dev/kmsg character device. adb shell dmesg returns permissions denied error because adbd which runs with context u:r:shell:s0 is not allowed by SELinux to read kernel log. You need to explicitly allow it (requires root): ~# supolicy --...

If you go through How Magisk works and How to manually root a phone it would be easy for you to figure out why it's impossible to achieve what you are looking for. init is the very first process started by kernel, which at its early stage sets SELinux enforcing (if it's not already enforcing). Before that happens, we need to modify SELinux policy so that it ...

I got exactly the same problem with my Phone(Oneplus 5). I've tried a lot of things software side but nothing helped.

So I replaced the charging plug and with it the bottom microphone. Afterward all worked ...

Here's an incomplete solution, since the notification itself says "These notifications can't be turned off": Touch and hold on the notification in the notifications dropdown Tap "Details" When "System UI" opens under "App notifications" in Settings, it will briefly flash the "Ongoing" section Tap the "Ongoing" section Tap "Notification Style" Tap "Silent ...

I really hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if you have an integrity failure, you probably wouldn't want to boot your device even if you could. Allow me to explain. The "integrity failed" message means that a part of your system has been modified and might not be safe to boot. It might have been modified by a malicious app, program, or it could have ...

Android's built-in Accessibility really focuses on reading/speaking items on the screen and using gestures to move around. For voice control, one possibility is Google's Voice Access app in the Play Store, and the intro tutorial does give a good example of the app's features, but there seems to be some problems with the form-filling (speech to text into a ...

I've encountered this issue before and in the end it turned out to just be a server-side outage / traffic. Either wait it out after submitting or try again in a bit if it times out, but don't spam requests as it'd likely contribute to the delays. Feel free to confirm it's not an network/carrier/ISP connectivity issue on your end first (e.g., switch to ...

Following @alecxs advice, I managed to exit loop and enter download/odin mode: 1) Just drain the battery until it turns off. 2) Hold vol+ and vol- while connecting usb cable. 3) Press vol+ to enter download/odin mode. ps. The fix of the system is subject of another question.

The data of the power supply indicates that it is compliant with the USB Power Delivery Standard (USB-PD). If it has an USB logo there should be some sort of "power flash" within that logo to indicate that it supports USB-PD. The USB Power Delivery standard defines backward compatibility, this means that by default the charger will output 5V and only ...

UPDATE: there are apps for isolating environment and e.g. hiding other apps. Check Island. Unfortunately, lots of Android capabilities are limited by producers - that's the case, too.

The usage time is the total time when the app is/was in the foreground; meaning the total time when you are/were interacting with an app. When the app is in the background, although in use (for example, a music app), that time is not included in the total time under "usage time".

Hoping that you have not wiped your data while flashing firmware using Odin, the process of data retrieval can be variably difficult. The best way I can think of is to flash a custom recovery on your device then mount desired partitions. PS I have no information whether your phone is rooted or not, so just providing the most workable way.

Based on the iFixit tear-down of the Samsung Galaxy S9 you can see that the flash chip in this model is a single chip soldered onto the motherboard - it is inside the orange rectangle below, a 64 GB UFS (NAND flash + controller): Therefore theoretically it may be possible to unsolder this chip and read out the content if you manage to get the chip working ...
