  1. S8+ Root, anyone?

    If it doesn't work I don't think it would hurt anything. It would just fail and maybe reboot. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  2. Boot Animation

    It's incredibly simple all you have to do is replace the boot animation that's there with the one you want so when you copy the new one into that folder you replace the original and then change permissions to rw-r--r-- Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  3. Virus'?

    Yup. I had a lady who swore her phone was hacked by someone and whoever that someone was was taking control of the phone and doing things remotely, like changing settings, setting lock codes and passwords, making calls and even talking to her through the phone. It was, hands down, the single most crazy thing I'd ever heard of happening. After looking at it for 3 mins it's lock code was set and it was impossible to get around it without wiping it, which she absolutely refused to do. This was an Apple iPhone 6S, Apple told her that she needed to have her Apple ID and password in order to reset the phone so that it can be used which she "did not create and does not know what it could be". Lol. So she got a different phone, an S6, exactly the same thing happened. Exact same thing. (Wow) Except with Sammy it's IMPOSSIBLE to bypass the lock unless you know the Samsung account that locked it, which she "didn't make" and "didn't set up" - so the 4 day old S6 was rendered useless all of my efforts to get a working phone we're in vain. Yeah... That was the weirdest one. She insisted she had nothing to do with it however I know that what she claimed happened is not even possible so.... Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

  5. Virus'?

    It's not really a thing no. Anybody who says that simply doesn't understand something that's going on with the phone. There is the extremely rare off-chance that if somebody had a rooted phone and an APK that had been modified into some form of malware or virus but was designed to imposter a legitimate app that was given Superuser permission by the user - then yes in that scenario of virus could be a thing. However in all my years, I've never seen it happen or heard of it happening to anyone. But for 99.99% of instances where somebody says that it means, precisely, nothing. As for antivirus programs for a phone they are completely and utterly useless if you have a stock device. If you're rooted and use alternative apps or hacked apps, then they could be of use, but still, I've had a rooted device for going on ten years now and I sometimes use illegitimate apps and have never found the need for one and I've never had anything happen.

  6. Me too, let me know. I also have professional data recovery tools and software should you need it (I can provide temp use copies also) if the data is on a SD card then it's easier, if not then it might be trickier but not impossible. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  7. I actually JUST dealt with a similar issue with a G4, I pulled the battery and put it right back, powered it on fine. However, for the previous 2-3 hours it wouldn't respond to anything, not plugged in or power button, nothing - dead. Something must have been funky because just a quick battery pull made it work again. As for recovery, if it has a knock code or other password protection, I doubt it could ever be recovered by anyone other than LG. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

  12. Unlimited on US Celluar

    Yes, on uscc. the fine print is right on their homepage https://www.uscellular.com/uscellular/plans/showPlans.jsp?plan-selector-type=voice-messaging&type=plans#listing if you had read the first few pages you should have seen this, also.

    I can personally confirm that in CF/Waterloo VZWs coverage is on par with uscc, speeds are better (lol, for sure) - I'm in Newton and travel there quite often. also, i brought up the plans speeds on page 1 - where i got confirmation of a perm. speed throttle. Even if youre on the SD plan, 0.xx mbps is still garbage

    They were pretty misleading to customers that bought into this, i'll agree, but we posted about it well before it happened. I feel for you, truly, I just dont know where to point you to make a difference in it because they don't care about you, or most of us on here - the best way to show them that this is crap (and it is) is to leave. It sucks but I dont think theres a more productive way to go about it.
  15. MobileOdin?

    Mobile Odin hasn't been stable or safe for a very long time. I would NOT recommend you use that. Iirc the last phone that it actually worked on was the S4 and S5 - with issues happening after 4.4, then at 5.0 it stopped working altogether. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
