same thing with lemmy clients, manually clicking through 100 check boxes of supported domains... can't the app ask to do it on first launch? or is my setup to blame?
I played Dragons Quest Tactics on and off for about a year but I never thought it was very good at all and there were a lot of annoying aspects I hated, recently the game decided to delete all my progress and characters so I'm done with it for good. Is there anything actually fun to play on Android in the same vein?
I'm using NewPipe but some functionalities are lacking. Looked at revanced but unsure about it's reputation. Also, will I get banned by using a modded YT client? Thanks.

How does sleep really work in the Android kernel?
I've been wondering about this for a while, but couldn't find anything about it. What exactly happens after the screen turns off? Does the kernel actually suspend and halt the CPU? If so, how are notifications received while sleeping? Is there a coprocessor involved?
I'm curious. It would be great if someone could point me towards some articles or videos about this.
Hi, I'm wanting to set up app locking on my Pixel 4a with only a physical device to unlock them. Preferably something keychain-able.
Here are some options I've looked into and considering:
- Bluetooth device with...
- separate Android profile + Smart Lock
- AppLock - Fingerprint app
- this is the only app of this type I found that supports Bluetooth
- NFC tag with...
- some app locker app, though I haven't been able to find one that supports NFC
- Tasker (related how-to)
Here are some options I've looked into and not considering:
- USB-C security key
- would prefer a wireless option to not wear out the phone's port
- I don't like subscriptions
- Smart Lock doesn't support NFC anymore (request to bring it back)
- I actually have an old Google Bluetooth Titan Security Key, but it doesn't seem to work with Smart Lock. It doesn't let me add it as a trusted device despite being successfully paired. I think it might operate on Bluetooth Low Energy.
- Seems like NFC might be better than Bluetooth for my purposes since I wouldn't have to worry about battery life.
- I don't know what Bluetooth device might work best for this purpose. I believe products like Tile also work on Bluetooth Low Energy.
- Any recommendations on NFC tags? Seems like Etsy might be good to get something somewhat customizable and better looking than the blank chips I've seen listed online.
Happy to hear anything you have to share on this topic!
The problem with most smartphone image editors is that they are meant for quick edits to photos. Usually they are limited to cropping, adding filters and drawing. I'm looking for something a little more capable, something more akin to a traditional desktop editor like GIMP. Open source is a plus.
Two years ago, a feature was added to Android 12 where the previous audio source would fade out when a different source starts playing (e.g. you start a YouTube video while music is playing).
A post was made on XDA on 18 May, 2021:
Audio focus is determined by the app in question that's playing media. Google explained that when an app requests audio focus while another app has the focus and is playing, the framework forces the playing app to fade out. This will be a nice change because instead of another app abruptly ending its audio stream whenever the user starts another session, Android 12 will nicely fade out the old stream that's lost focus.
I remember being very impressed with this feature and found it satisfying every time. However, after buying a Samsung Galaxy A24 running Android 13, I was disappointed to discover that this feature is missing.
This is yet another reason why I can't wait to install a custom ROM on this phone. For now, though, I guess I'll just have to wait.

Here is the English translation
In June, ASUS announced to employees through an internal letter that it would carry out an organizational reorganization, and although ASUS repeatedly stressed that it was not going to lay off employees, in July it cut the staff of the PC department, affecting the employees in Taiwan and Suzhou, China. However, ASUS's layoffs have not slowed down, and now an informed source revealed to the "Science and Technology News" that "this afternoon, some units in the commercial sector were called downstairs one after another, and the units including engineers and procurement were directly cut in half."
According to the initial ASUS internal letter, the commercial computer team planned and went to the mobile phone product department; People familiar with the matter pointed out that some talents have just been merged into mobile phone units, but they have been laid off; Originally, ASUS stated that after the organizational reorganization, the human resources association had internal matchmaking vacancies, but in fact, human resources did not want to match for these employees, and had to find internal vacancies by themselves.
As for why some employees were merged into mobile phone units, but then laid off? The person familiar with the matter pointed out that the Asus mobile phone has two series, ROG and Zenfone, but now the latest Zenfone 10 will be the last generation of this series, and the Zenfone team will be merged into other departments in the future, or directly into the ROG team.
It is understood that this wave of commercial sector employees who were laid off by ASUS will be until next month.
Best case is that they mean the Zenfone line is dead and the rog still lives. But even then that still hurts.

I've just released the first version of Eternity (after changing the name from Infinity for Lemmy). It's been long overdue, but I wanted to finish a few features before this update. This release includes various fixes and new features, such as:
List blocked users/communities
Separate up/down votes (can be disabled in the settings)
New themes (including a new default one!)
Fixed various crashes.
And a huge thank you to everyone who provided feedback, translated the app, or contributed in any form during the testing phases of this release. Your insights and suggestions were invaluable in making Eternity better for all users. I'll continue to gather feedback and make improvements in the coming updates, so please don't hesitate to reach out with any further thoughts or issues you might encounter. Your support and engagement mean the world to me! Happy browsing!

Hello! I'm trying to make google maps go work on my android smartphone. Google maps go is basically a wrapper of the website, that should provide navigation feature with another app called "navigator for Google maps". I have both installed, but when I click on "navigate in app", the link "maps.app.goo.gl/somethingverylong" is redirected to the play store website instead of being opened with the navigator app. Both apps have all permissions granted. What am I doing wrong?
Bonus question: do I really need the google maps go app or is it also possible to redirect to the navigator app from the browser?
Bonus question #2: would the navigator app work without google play services, on a degoogled rom?
Thanks in advance!
Share some thoughts if you tried GrapheneOS camera app on any stock or custom rom besides graphene, thanks
I recently discovered F(x)tec Pro1 X, Cosmo Communicator and the upcoming Astro Slide. Anyone having these devices? Wondering how it performs, how battery life, how the keyboard.
I know about supply issues, but I saw a few options on e-Bay.
Also looks like only F(x)tec Pro1 X supported by LineageOS.
I know it's very specific, lol. But my Samsung S8 is basically just a portabel 4G modem for me now. Since the screen is cracked and I don't want to spend money on that old phone. I usually access the phone to scrcpy, it works but since the screen is unuseable, I can no longer give adb access to another devices.
So I just want to know whether is it posible to give it some short of webui that I can access to do basic stuff like turning hotspot on or off, etc.
My mother uses a prepaid phone plan where mobile data usage is charged by the megabyte. It is currently not cost-effective to switch to a monthly fixed-cost subscription plan.
- When she is at home, she should:
- Switch off mobile data.
- Switch on WiFi (because her home WiFi has a fixed monthly cost).
- When she is outside home, she should:
- Switch on mobile data (so that others can contact her using messaging apps such as Signal and WhatsApp).
- Switch off WiFi (to conserve battery).
The problem: she often forgets to do the above. Sometimes she leaves home without switching on mobile data. Sometimes she accidentally uses lots of mobile data when at home.
Is there an app that can automatically switch on/off mobile data and WiFi based on the phone’s location? Location should be detected based on all the following data: latitude/longitude coordinates (if location is enabled on phone), WiFi networks in range (if WiFi is enabled on phone), and cell tower signals (if airplane mode is not on).
We would strongly prefer to use a privacy-respecting open source app for this. Phone: Samsung Galaxy A series. OS: Android 13.
Similar to the very random Share suggestions this has been a pet peeve of mine for ever: How in god's name does Android decide which 3 devices to display in this screen? Two of those I have not connected to in ages and one of those only maybe once or twice ever. Is there any way to change this? I would so love to have my most used devices there to save me a click and searching through the long list of saved devices. Any ideas? If not, that's fine as well, I'm also happy to just have ranted a little.
