  1. Hi there, yesterday i stupidly applied the latest official Lineage Nightly Update via the integrated OTA updater (skipping the two nightlies before that), now the system won't boot and after a long boot loop returns to the recovery which tells me to reset userdata. I pulled an image of the userdata via adb on ubuntu but of course it is encrypted. Does anyone have any recommendations how i could pull some data like my apks and such from the userdata image?
  2. Yep, see that corner in the right circle? That's where i ripped it with my bigass "wurstfingers" as us germans would say xD By the way, for opening the case without a scratch, one of those shaving blades that have a grip on one side and a blade on the other, also used for scratching stuff from automotive glass panels, works very well.
  3. oh yeah i should have mentioned it, you shouldnt sand those gold connectors down that much, just rough them up a tiny bit and nudge them to go outwards - the aluminium contact plates on the case side however should probably be sanded and roughed up a little
  4. I'll see what i can do, unfortunately i can't use the phone to take photos of itself while disassembled. But i had been planning on opening it up again to put a thermal conducting strip on the back of the battery, seeing how it warms up quite a bit during fast charging. I don't have any screenshot of the signal quality but beforehand you would almost never get any reception inside, walking by a radio/scanner you would not hear it transmitting. If i had any reception at all inside it was right at the window and then only like 1 bar of 4G, never anything else. Wifi connection was frequently

    Spare Parts

    Hi there, is it possible to order things like fingerprint sensors, screens or screw-sets for the pro1 should the need arise?
  6. I have already tried numerous new sims from other providers, they all worked even worse. However there are good news, i just disassembled the device and made sure all the contact-pads for the aluminum case (which seems to be the antenna itself, gorgeous engineering!) have better contact and all the coax cables are in place - now the 4g reception is a lot quicker and i finally can take calls from my desk again. I now have a similar amount of reception at my desk that i used to have with my old droid 4 🙂 So yeah if anyone else has those problems, you can disassemble
  7. That's exactly my situation right now, however to me there is no alternative - i didn't see any qwerty device that even comes close to this as a followup to the old milestone/droid line that motorola used to make.
  8. Would my warranty be void if i opened it up to take a look considering im working in the field? Does anyone know if the impedance of the antenna system is meant to be 50 Ohms? I tried limiting the bands, and so far only LTE seems to work. In the meantime ill give my provider another call, i called them yesterday to complain about my shoddy old sim, but i think they did not do anything yet as i have not received a confirmation of my report.
  9. Love these, especially the prawn one is awesome (crustaceans for the win). What does it stand for? Seeing this topic, does that mean you have fully disassembled the device before? Do you know how to reach the antenna assembly?
  10. Thanks a lot, the "turn on backlight" actually was enabled but still didn't work. Having flashed every available rom and datestamp at least 5 times it seems that CM17.1 works best at reconizing the sim cards and getting reception. I have now also tried sim cards from t-mobile and vodafone, it really seems that my apartment is the culprit in this case. I guess i will have to get one of these "legal" chinese 4g /3g repeater stations for my home. As soon as i go outside reception is normal - however i have so far only encountered LTE - which kind of confuses me, no EDGE, n
  11. Tried it and it looks really cool, however i don't seem to be able to receive any carrier with it at all.
  12. Gonna give that a try, thank you. What exactly does AICP Q stand for?
  13. I don't think so, the keyboard backlight works fine with lineage. Using the finQWERTY German Layout everything works fine, except for the ?/ß key, which has some sort of ß for both caps and lowercase character. Which settings are you using for O2? Did you select "Global" as preferred network mode? Are you "only" getting 4G reception, or is GSM and 3G also working? I'm gonna call them tomorrow, maybe there is an issue with my sim card Thanks 🙂
  14. I'll give that a try - right now i'm trying to get reception because i need to make an urgent phone call 😄 my carrier is o2 / telefonica in germany
  15. Hi there, i am running the latest stock rom on my fresh pro1 and i'm having some problems that completely ruin the experience for me. Maybe someone can help me, this is really unnerving. Firstly the keyboard flip out mechanism does not control the landscape orientation and does not force all aps into landscape. Auto tilt for landscape is so bad, it does not even tilt the phone 100% of the time when the keyboard is out and it is laying on the back. I used to use a motorola droid 4, where the screen orientation via keyboard would always work, so i don't get the problem here. Seco
