    yeap, actually if you Root the phone then you may play with notification access options via gravity box app.Had the same problem on one of my android phones and solved it that way

    Probably not, as I put innocuous things like screen rotation and geolocation there to avoid this, but it keeps on happening Perhaps it's from the shutdown menu...

    Thanks, I'll look into that.

    I haven't tried the Gravity app yet because she's been having some hectic work schedules, but I'll report when I get the chance.

    If an Android phone has AGPS, is it possible to find my location and use maps without any sort of connection (no Wi-Fi and no SIM card inserted)? Online answers vary between "yes if you wait 15 minutes on an open-air location and have offline maps downloaded", "no" and "only iPhones can do that shit".

    I'm experiencing an issue: my moto e with cyanogen does not update the files on system partition and sd card. I see one set of files (new) on android and a whole different set (older files) on MTP in windows. The MTP on weindows just never gets updated, the files are there even when the folder is empty on android (es explorer).

    The android device is rooted and I hope this is not the cause of this. I have read online that it could be because MTP cannot read root files, only user files.
    Does anyone has a workaround? Tips, experience, anything?

    Thank you

    Hi, I have a 2013 Moto X, 1st gen. Installed the latest CM 13 before they ceased development and my GPS doesn't work anymore

    It can spot where I am with location ON, but navigation won't work, even with other softwares.

    Already tried fastboot erase modemst1 and 2, anyone had this?

    I may have found a temporary sollution: after a android restart the new files show up in MTP. Probably needs to be restart every so often?

    It does, and so do MAPS.ME and OsmAnd~, although I found the latter to be very slow in comparison with the other two. HERE WeGo has 3D buildings for most of my city, which is a nice touch, but the maps in MAPS.ME seem more complete, to the point of including the location of benches on parks

    Lineage OS is the new CyanogenMod. You may want to try that.

    What is a good text editor for Android? I currently use QuickEdit but my text files are not displayed correctly in it. QuickEdit does not respect tab character or multiple spaces.

    I'd like to know how it runs.

    My new cell phone came bundled with it, I only tested for reading some docs so far and it did the job well, fast and no errors.

    How much space does it take? I know the full suite installer is about 90MB.
