  1. Any news on this topic? I found out today, that the caller volume in Signal is only too loud (and not adjustable) when I call someone. When I receive a Signal call, the caller volume is fine. I don't know yet if the phone app is similar ... Wow, this issue is so annoying, it makes me (almost) hate my Pro1 at times ... 😞
  2. I see these errors as well. Looks like an SELinux issue. As with so many apps, libraries and other blobs, I would very much like to know what they all do ...
  3. I did some more testing, thanks to having numerous home office meetings these days :-) The call volume adjustment does in fact work do something. To me it seems to adjust the volume between 60 and 80%. Obviously, its not as noisy as before, but it still won't adjust below 60%. And missing a setting above 80% proved to be an issue during a conference call, when I could barely hear anything. I also noticed that the phone speaker struggled a lot with low frequencies. This made things much worse and should be taken care of by an equaliser. Human (male) voices do not transmit information below 80 to 100 Hz. There is something beeping in the background as well. I guess the audio circuit picks up interference from the modem/antennas. Although, it sounds as if the beeping comes from "behind" the phone speaker, and not the speaker itself.
  4. Is it really fixed though? I installed the latest OTA (2020-03-06) and still cannot adjust the call volume in Emerald Diler or Signal. The caller volume is fixed to "crazy loud" and I have to hold the phone away from my ear. When I go to Settings to adjust the call volume, my phone plays the alarm chime in different volumes, without any effect on the call volume. In GravityBox, I activated all volume adjustment sliders, seven in total (!), and none affects the call volume.
  5. Good question 😄 You could give oandbackup (opensource) or Appwhererrabbit (closed source, paid) a try. Both support backing up /data/data with root.
  6. TaiChi is closed source, unfortunately. Although Riru is opensource, I have an icky feeling using it. But TaiChi is something I would not even consider installing on my phone 😉 SafetyNet and other root detection methods in e.g. banking apps are a nuisance. In your case, I'd rather do without NFC than have TaiChi on my phone. Sometimes you can be lucky with an old version of an app. I am using an old version of a "photo TAN" app successfully 🙂 If/when it stops working some time in the future, I will simply tell my bank "f*** you!" ...
  7. Did anyone here update Riru EdXposed to " (4510) SandHook" already? The thought of updating and getting stuck in a boot halt terrifies me ... but my OCD wants to klick the download button in Magisk manager 🙂
  8. I am too lazy to get ye olde oscilloscope out of the cabinet, but I too suspect it to be electrical noise. Possibly not even from the charger itself. The ghosting only happens when the phone sits on the plastic surface of the table. IT is a height adjustable office table with a laptop and two screens on it. Maybe the table itself acts like a capacitor and the surface of the phone gets charged electrically when it is in contact with the table surface while connected to a power outlet. Oh my, so much text and I bet @[email protected] is not even struggling with ghost touches only while charging ... 😄 I too would like to have a setting for the touchscreen sensibility. Or get to know if a configuration file can be edited manually. This applies to countless other things too. E.g. the width of the swipe up unlock gesture, the minimum volume and volume steps, ...
  9. I see these ghost touches when a certain charger is connected. On another phone, I had ghost touches in strong winds...
  10. Yes, AppWereRabbit can be confusing and it is still in development. E.g. the author wants to implement batch data recovery, which is missing so far. Looking at the list of issues with oandbackup on GitHub, you can see for yourself whether oandbackup would work for you or not. The author is still active and does release new versions every now and then. The last update made oandbackup ready for Android Pie. IF you are a messy like me, and have 500+ apps installed, any backup solution will fail for at least one app 😉
  11. A while back, oandbackup had problems with symlinks. I tied out AppWhereRabbit and came to like the UI and the possibility to categorise data backups. If I hadn't bought AppWhereRabbit, I would probably just use oandbackup today.After all, oandbackup is opensource. All in all, I think things look rather grim when it comes to "offline solutions". Google is pushing the cloud, same as Apple and Microsoft. You are not supposed to have local backups, local contacts storage, local e-mail, or even use something as devilish as an SD-card! 😉
  12. You have a good point here. The apps that get permanent root on my phone are apps that I use daily. Thankfully, Magisk has an option to revoke root privileges automatically when an app gets updated. Edit: Was I wrong about Magisk revoking root after an app update? I can't find a corresponding setting in the Magisk Manager. Did I mistake Magisk SU with SuperSU? Was I blinded by wishful thinking?
  13. Appwhererabbit and oandbackup are two of extremely few backup apps that do backup data properly using root. XPrivacyLUA lets you set the Android ID, serial number and other things globally or individually for each app. I had to use this feature to keep Sygic working when I messed with my Android, or when I got a new phone. The official way is to contact the app developer, but that becomes cumbersome quickly for weirdos like me who experiment with their phones a lot ... and mess things up on the way 🙂
  14. You might want to read about SELinux 😉 As others pointed out, you may grant root only once, or just for a few minutes. Although I don't quite get the point of restricting root like that. Trusted apps get permanent root on my phones. Untrusted apps never ever get root, not even once. Getting root one time is enough for a malicious app to compromise your system (privilege escalation) ...
  15. No, none of the Xposed modules causing a boot halt ever "worked randomly sometimes". They all crashed Android a few seconds after Android finished booting, whenever I managed to get Android to boot up. One exception might be MyAndroidTools Xposed, which did work when I booted without my SIM. And it continued to work after I put the SIM back in while Android was running. My Pro1 does not pass the SafetyNet checks. Whether that is caused by XPrivacyLUA or by EdXposed itself I don't know. Thankfully I don't have anything running on my phone that requires SafetyNet 🙂 (I have to use an old version of a TAN app for my bank account though) Regarding backups, I use oandbackup and AppWererabbit to backup app data. Restoring data from an older version never was a problem for any of my apps. When you switch phones or upgrade/change Android, some apps detect that they were restored when they compare e.g. the Android ID from the data backup against the new ID. These apps can be fooled with XPrivacyLUA 😉
