Unofficial XDA Glossary, WIP

Android - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 12:25

I decided to make a glossary of terms a Android modder new to the scene should know. I got the idea to make it after someone in my device community was without WiFi for a week because he didn't know what a clean flash was. Without further ado,

Please leave a comment on the glossary if you have any suggestions.

What is your setup?

Linux - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 12:01

Is there a sub/community where people share their linux setups? I don't mean like r/unixporn but more along the lines of partitioning, filesystems, local and remote storage, personalised scripts and workflows. Basically what is your environement like? I would be keen to test out some more exotic setups in a VM as a learning experience and would be keen to hear how people have customised their systems. Cheers

Anyone here using Google WiFi? Impressions requested.

Linux - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 11:53

This was posted to /r/linuxhardware and received no comments, so I'm trying again here...

I've heard great things about Google Wifi's mesh coverage and speeds, but I'm curious about the customizability of the configuration. The marketing materials tout an easy app-driven interface, which gives me pause.

I use PiHole, plan to build a NextCloud server that I want to be able to access remotely, and so on.

(I'm not asking in a general PC sub because it's my observation that Linux users care more about the admin granularity of their hardware, and are better-versed in networking.)
