  1. Be sure to have your phone rooted and the latest TWRP installed. TWRP download: https://dl.twrp.me/victara/ Lineage OS Unofficial build download: https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=125028&sort_by=date&sort_dir=DESC GAPPS download: http://opengapps.org/?api=7.1&variant=stock TWRP install instructions: fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.0.x.x-xxx.img fastboot reboot-bootloader Use the volume down to scroll to "Recovery" then use volume up to select. Use a computer to copy both the Lineage OS ROM and GAPPS that you recently downloaded. Copy to Moto X while still in TWRP main menu. Click on "Install" then click on your Lineage OS ROM, then click on add zip and add gapps as well. Click "Install" wait to complete then click on "Reboot" It will say Cyanogenmod but ignore this, because this is unofficial for now. Setup your phone, join the Google beta program, update Google. Enable Developer options by spamming the button build version. Enable root Apps Only install Build Prop, modify build.prop Add ro.product.model=Pixel Add ro.opa.eligible_device=true Click on "Save" Reboot, and wait. Then Go to Google Search on pixel launcher and click again on the "G" scroll down and you should be prompted at the very bottom to setup Google Assistant. After, go to smart lock and Trusted Voice and make sure all settings are enabled. If Google Assistant still does not work, try this.

  2. I have found a couple tutorials on the web that will work for our model. First is to gain root. Follow this guide: http://www.droidviews.com/easily-root-lg-devices-using-the-one-click-root-script/ then for the custom recovery follow this guide: http://www.droidviews.com/root-lg-g-pad-7-v400-v410-and-install-twrp-recovery/(Be sure to use the v410 Recovery!) I used both and can confirm it worked on my device.
  3. Alright, for those of you who lost root after ota update, or got the phone after ota update. Here you go. Long awaited root, LOL. Use this guide at our own risk, i am not responsible for bricked or broken phones. 1. Of course you'll need android sdk, and Motorola USB Drivers for windows, cause i couldn't get it to work on Ubuntu 12.04. Just google them. 2. USB Debugging needs to be on. 3. Phone needs to have unlocked bootloader. Google that as well. 4. Download files. 1. cw-recovery.img - http://www.mediafire...22r5i1771cs1nf2 2. SU-Busybox-Installer.zip - http://www.mediafire...mutqmcqakjkperw --UPDATE--For some reason this recovery doesnt work on some Electrify Ms, If you get to step 9 and can't get into cwm recovery, start over and you this recovery img in place of the one above. http://www.aosp.us/wp-content/files/cw-recovery.img 4. Put phone in mass storage mode and go ahead and copy SU-Busybox-Installer.zip to sdcard. 5. open cmd prompt, and type adb devices to make sure your drivers are working properly. Should return a serial number under "List of devices." Then navigate cmd prompt to the folder where the recovery img is 6. Then type adb reboot bootloader to enter fastboot mode. 7. to be safe type fastboot devices just to make sure fastboot recognizes the phone. Should again return serial number. 8. Then install clockworkmod 6.0.1.4 (might work with other version, just havent tested them) fastboot flash recovery cw-recovery.img 9. Once that finishes, you have to unplug the device, power down, then hold power + volume up to reboot to recovery. you should then be in cwm recovery. 10. Now for root, from cwm, volume down to "install zip from sdcard", then press power button, then "install from external sdcard", then volume down to "SU-Busybox-Installer.zip" and press power. Once that finishes "Go Back" to the main menu of cwm and reboot. 11. Then install Superuser.apk from Play Store. Should now be all set, Check with Root Checker from the market. Sorry if any of this is vague. Let me know if you have problems. It also occurs to me that version of cwm is the touch version, didnt try touch functionality. Someone let us know.
  4. Want to root your S2 without losing any data/configuration? Then you're in the right place. This guide is a compilation of bits of information I found scattered about the interwebs, as well as instructions/files by JTuck, droidroidz, and the development community, so thanks/credit to them. I'm not going to skip any of the details that anyone with any experience would find blatantly obvious, so if you have almost no clue what you're doing, you might still be able to follow this pretty well. Before you follow this guide, make sure: You have a US Cellular Galaxy S2 (SCH-R760) with the latest updated stock ICS (Android 4.0.4 Build# FL26). Settings>About Device to check that.The phone's It's decently chargedYou've got your drivers installed (Odin won't detect your phone without them; if your phone's not being detected, try installing Samsung Kies)You understand nothing bad should happen, but in the off chance it does, I'm not responsible for your phoneUSB Debugging is enabled on your phone (Settings>Developer Options)Your phone is off and unplugged from your computer.You have read through the instructions before beginning, and are capable of completing them all.If you're good to go, then lets begin: Download and unpack S2 Root.zip (attached to this post) In the extracted folder, open the Odin folder, then run the Odin3 application. Under the "Files [Download]" section, click "PDA". Navigate to the S2Root extracted folder, and select the SCH-R760 tar.md5 file. This is the stock kernel, except with ClockWork Mod installed, which we will use in a minute. Check that the PDA check-box is now ticked, and the correct file is selected. Hold the volume down and power button on your phone (which should be off) simultaneously to boot into ODIN mode. A warning will appear. Press the volume up button to proceed. Plug your phone into your computer with the standard cable. Wait for your computer to finish detecting your phone. The Odin3 application on your computer should say "Added!" in the message box to indicate your phone is detected. If it does not, check your drivers. Be sure that under the options pane, only "Auto Reboot" and "F. Reset Time" (the defaults) are checked. Click "Start" in the Odin3 application. Wait while the new kernel is installed. Wait for your phone to completely reboot into its normal OS. A yellow triangle will appear during the boot process. This is normal. The Odin3 application should display the message "Leaving CS" to indicate the process is done. You may now exit the Odin3 application. Your phone should now be on, with the updated kernel, but operating as if nothing had happened. Open up your phone's directory on your computer, and drag the file update.zip (from the S2Root extracted folder) into the root of your phone's SD card. Be sure to put it on the native SD, and not an external if you have one. This is usually called "Phone" (vs "Card" for the external) in your phone's storage directory. Once you have both files in the root directory of the SD card, safely unplug your phone, then power it off. With your phone off, hold the power button and the volume UP button together until you see the first logo. The will boot your phone into CW Recovery (which we just installed a few steps ago). In Recovery, you navigate with the up/down volume keys; the power button is enter. Knowing that, select "install zip from sdcard". Select the second option, "apply /sdcard/update.zip". If that's not available, you put the file in the wrong place. Either move it with your computer, or find where you put it via "choose zip from sdcard". Select "yes" from the next menu and wait for SuperSU (which is what is in update.zip) to finish installing. Go back to the main screen, and choose reboot system now. A menu should pop up warning you that the phone might revert to stock kernel. Do as it suggests, and disable this reversion. Your phone will reboot, and you now have root! Install Titanium Backup to back up your phone and remove bloatware if you want.Things to note: The yellow triangle on boot will persist. You can try triangle away, but I didn't have any luck with it on this kernel. Don't follow this guide if you can't deal with it.Rooting using this method will not delete any apps/contacts/data/configurations etc. It only affects the kernel, and adds SuperSU.Flashing a custom ROM (not done in this tutorial) does delete data.You might want to try some of the one-click methods first (google one-click root or easy root, etc), but none of them worked for me.Despite what your system might say, you're now on an FK19 kernel. That means you're vulnerable to the security exploit present in that build. Consider patching it.Questions? You're probably better asking one of the long-timers, but I'll try to help out where I can.

  5. About the S-Pen: --------------------------------- The S-Pen can be used as a stylus, tapping much more accurately on the screen than you could with your finger, but it also functions as so much more. The technology used in the S-Pen is Wacom's. Wacom is a well known company that makes drawing pads, used by artists to draw on a computer. You can read more about the technology here: http://www.wacom-com...nology/emr.html The Menu and Back buttons on the bottom of the device are capacitive. As the S-Pen is not capacitive, you cannot press them with it. See below under 'Device wide functionality' for a way of using back and menu anyway without just tapping them with your fingers. While the S-Pen is detected as pointing at or touching the screen the capacitive sensor and buttons will not be functional. This is to prevent you from accidentally pressing something while resting your hand on the device and using the S-Pen, but it isn't very reliable if you don't keep the pen very close to the screen at all times. The S-Pen can now be used by developers! Which means that non-samsung apps are starting to pop up which make use of the full functionality of the S-Pen. Right now only a few drawing applications have chosen to support it, but hopefully more will in the future. To find more S-Pen enabled apps open the Samsung App Store and select S-Pen Apps. As it uses wacom technology, the S-Pen can be replaced/supplemented with any wacom pen. Pens with two buttons where one normally functions as an eraser can also be used! Remember to enable S-Pen detection when the pen is inside the device, or just remove the S-Pen for the wacom pen to be detected. The S-Pen is pressure sensitive. In some applications where you can draw you can press gently for a slimmer line, or harder for a thicker one. Configuration: --------------------------------- You can configure Popup Note to open when you remove the pen. Go to Settings->S-Pen. Other useful configuration options exist here, so take the time to browse them. Checking the battery saving option is critical and has no downsides. The S-Pen Keeper option purports to sound and alert when you walk away from the device without the s-pen. The device has three things to work with to implement this functionality: Being able to detect when the pen is in the device, detecting when the pen is pointed at or touching the screen, and the accelerometer. When the pen is not or pointing at the device and the accelerometer has "shaken" enough the notification will sound. If you don't shake much when you walk, it will take it a -long- time to sound. Under Settings-Lock screen, you can select if you want to be able to use Popup Note on the lock screen. Decheck this for a slightly faster screen turn on rate if you don't use it. Air View: --------------------------------- When enabled in Settings->S-Pen air view tracks the s-pen as it hovers up to half and inch over the screen. When hovering over an area where simply hovering will not take an action the cursor is an empty circle. In areas where it will take an action the cursor changes. Other cursors include a filled circle and arrows, for example. In most stock applications you can hover over a button to view its function. Hover near the edge of the screen (top, bottom, left, right) in almost any application (even non-stock) where you can scroll and the screen will scroll in the desired direction. In many applications the hovering cursor is viewed as a mouse cursor would be. This can be used to play flash games where the cursor location is important. It can also be used to display drop down menus on websites. Stock applications like Gallery and Video Player have additional air view functionality. Hover over a gallery folder to preview pictures inside it. Hover over the video timeline while playing a video in Video Player to preview the video at that point. Device wide functionality: --------------------------------- Some functions of the S-Pen can be used almost anywhere on the device - even in games! Most of the functionality requires you to press the button found near the bottom of the pen and draw on the screen (while touching, not hovering). Press and hold the button and draw around any area of the screen, such that the ending point touches or comes near the starting point. A screenshot of the encircled area will be taken and displayed on the screen. Tap an icon on the bottom of the screen to send the screenshot to your desired program. It will be saved the the sdcard/Pictures/Screenshot directory and copied to the clipboard as well. If you touch no icon, it will still be saved and copied. Quickly hit the 'X' near the preview of the screenshot to discard it. Press and hold the button, then touch anywhere on the device and hold still to take a fullscreen screenshot. The screenshot will then be displayed in an editor. You can draw and write on the screenshot using the S-Pen. See the options at the top of the screen to switch drawing and text options. Click the checkmark to save the screenshot, or the 'X' to discard it. Any text that can be selected, even in most programs that do not support the S-Pen, can be selected by holding down the button and then drawing a line over it. The normal text selection brackets will then appear and can be used to refine your selection. Press and hold the button, then quickly tap twice anywhere on the screen to bring up S-Memo. You can then write anything you wish without closing the running program. Press and hold the button, then draw a line from near the bottom of the screen to near the top. This will open Quick Command. More information on Quick Command can be found below. Press and hold the button, then draw one of the predefined symbols below anywhere on the screen to activate the corresponding function. Back: An arrow (with no tail) pointing to the left. Menu: An arrow (with no tail) pointing up. Undo: (Where applicable) Draw a line from right to left. The Samsung Keyboard: --------------------------------- If you select the Samsung Keyboard in Settings->Language and Input you can use the S-Pen for handwriting recognition input anywhere you can use the keyboard. To activate handwriting recognition, press and hold the microphone icon on the keyboard: Then select the 'T' text input icon. Write in the center box that appears. The system will turn your input into text with a slight delay. It is quite accurate and can even interpret cursive - if your cursive is very clean and proper. While in the keyboard, draw a line from left to right to put in a space. Draw a line from right to left to press backspace (you can also just tap the backspace icon on the top). Tap the 'A' icon at the top to change the keyboard to numeric input mode, which is more accurate at recognizing numbers and equations. Tap the '123 Sym' icon to bring up a quick, tappable menu of numbers and symbols. Press and hold the microphone icon, then select the keyboard icon to return to the normal keyboard. Quick Command: --------------------------------- Quick command can be used anywhere on the device to take a predefined action or execute a macro. Access quick command by pressing the S-Pen button and drawing a line from the bottom to the top of the device. Any length of vertical line should work, it doesn't need to be precise. Once the Quick Command screen pops up, you can draw one of the predefined icons followed by text, or define your own macros. To define your own macro, press the settings button in the upper right of the Quick Command screen, then add a command. You can open an application or select functions. In functions, you can set more than one action. "Mute and enable bluetooth" for example. Once selected, you can draw or select one or more characters and symbols to activate the action, and then use those symbols in Quick Command! S-Note: --------------------------------- S-Note is one of the applications always pinned to the bottom icons in the Touchwiz Launcher. It is the showcase app for the S-Pen. If you take partial screenshots with the S-Pen and send them to S-Note, they will appear in the Scrapbook. To create a new Note, use the '+' icon. You don't have to be in a folder. Once in a note you can write and draw as you wish. Hover over icons to see their functionality, or press and hold them to bring up more options. The third icon on the top row allows you to switch between drawing, formula match and text input modes. While in drawing mode and not touching the screen press and release the S-Pen button to switch between eraser and draw modes. Tap the image icon for a menu allowing you to insert pictures, video, etc. This menu can be scrolled down for more options, if in landscape mode. One cool option is 'Idea Sketch'. After selecting it you can write the name of something you want a quick image of, and the device will search for it. Tap the red circle icon to begin (and then stop) recording your drawings as a video. To playback these recordings close and save your note, open it and press the 'Play' button. A full, useful tutorial on S-Note can be found by pressing the menu key, scrolling down in the menu and pressing Tutorial. I'm sure I've only scratched the surface of what is available when using the S-Pen. If you have any new tips or tricks, or want to write up a section on another app that uses the S-Pen, make a post and I'll add it to the guide! I also plan on making an S-Pen quick reference screen in the future, if there is any interest.
