    Might be cool to make an android tv out of it?

    I guess, with a Bluetooth keyboard or something like that. If performance inside a VM was also good, it would be tempting to have Spotify mods, offline maps and perhaps Signal (all of which have no Windows equivalent I know of) on the desktop, but I have very little use for a second computer running Android exclusively.

    I was thinking of showing the laptop to my mom next time she visits and seeing how well she can use it, like a social experiment

    Doesn't signal and others need an actual phone number? I'd love to use the service but I don't want to use my number. That defeats the purpose as we are no longer allowed to have anonymous numbers in my country

    I'm afraid so. Their server only sees a hash of it, but others still need to have your number to talk, of course.

    Silence is a fork that offers end-to-end encryption for SMS, it could be situationally useful.

    Same here, but the registration system is a joke. I activated a line using a former president's name and national ID number just to see what happened - it still works. The funniest part is that this measure is supposed to prevent cell phone theft by allowing easy reporting and identification of stolen phones, but thieves can just "repair" the IMEI or sell them on neighboring countries.

    Today I tried Limbo, a port of QEMU to the Android system. My experience with QEMU told me I shouldn't attempt to virtualize anything more demanding than Windows 9x, and that was indeed the case. Performance was very low - it took around 40 minutes to finish Windows 95's installation phase (first screenshot), and them some 10 more for the post-install setup. Once it was finally installed, there were noticeable delays in all operations. However, all of this is to be expected from emulating a completely different processor and instruction set on software, and on a low-end phone to boot.

    Sound was laggy to the point of unusability, but their wiki lists that as a known bug. I didn't try networking, but apparently only NAT is available unless you can root and install a TAP adapter on the host. And if you can somehow compile an Android kernel with KVM support and install it, that gives a significant speed boost.









    In its current state, this is little more than a novelty, although I do admire and wish the best for current and future development. And if you have an uberphone or want to run something with very low hardware requirements (DOS, Tiny Core Linux), you may find it more useful than I did!

    Revised debloating script for the XT1528. With this, MTP works and apps don't crash when they attempt to talk to the WebView that wasn't there.

    Favorite apps so far:

    Name Internal name Free software? Notes
    Audio Recorder com.github.axet.audiorecorder Yes Highly configurable.
    Hacker's Keyboard org.pocketworkstation.pckeyboard Yes Has Ctrl, Alt and function keys, supports multiple languages, doesn't send what you write to Google to "improve the quality of our services"...
    Lawnchair ch.deletescape.lawnchair.plah Yes I was using Rootless Pixel Launcher before, but this is a lot more configurable and can set the wallpaper!
    Material Files me.zhanghai.android.files Yes Uses Linux system calls instead of screen scraping. Very fast and has everything I wanted.
    MX Player Pro com.mxtech.videoplayer.pro No None of the alternatives, free or propietary, are as good. There is a Lite mod that enables all paid features and removes advertisements, analytics and other things.
    OpenCamera net.sourceforge.opencamera Yes Highly configurable, supports HDR.
    Simple Gallery Pro com.simplemobiletools.gallery.pro Yes A very usable picture and video viewer that doesn't crash.
    Terminal Emulator com.termoneplus Yes This phone can't be rooted and each app runs in an isolated user account, but I thought this could still be useful.

    Remote desktop for Android, running over ADB (which can itself run over a network). It works very well and doesn't require root or installing a "server" app in advance. Potentially useful for phones with a broken screen, but the question is how do you enable ADB in that case...

    `adb exec-out' redirects the stdout and stderr of a command to the stdout of the adb process itself.

    Code:
    # Backup the contents of /sdcard/ to a local TAR
    adb exec-out "tar c -C /sdcard/ . 2>/dev/null" >"C:\whatever\sdcard backup.tar"
    busybox can be installed and used without root. Find the binary that matches your processor architecture, copy it to a subdirectory of /data/local/tmp/, chmod +x, run `busybox --install -s .' to create symlinks for all the applets, then put that directory first on your $PATH.

    Can anyone confirm the following commands work for disabling Bluetooth?

    Code:
    adb shell settings put global bluetooth_on 0
    adb shell am broadcast -a android.intent.action.BLUETOOTH_ENABLE --ez state false

    https://m.apkpure.com/null-keyboard/...m.nullkeyboard - Null keyboard. Saves screen space when you're using a physical one.

    Total Commander has a free Android version, but I haven't tried it yet the interface doesn't convince me (even accounting for the fact you can't have an NC-style dual panel on a tiny portrait screen), but the file search and plugin support are great.
