How to Install Pixel 3 Camera for Pixel or Pixel 2!

For those of you who want to get some of the Pixel 3 camera features, you can get it now already for those of you with a Google Pixel, Pixel 2, Nexus 6P Android smartphones. (And may work on other devices running Android 9.0 Pie but I am still testing.)  The Pixel 3 Google Camera APK has been floating on the internet since the launch of Pixel 3 this morning and this is straight off the Pixel 3 smartphone.  Luckily, it is 100% compatible with original Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL smartphones.  And no, no root is required to install, you just need to have Android 9.0 Pie running on your Pixel smartphone.

How to Shoot Stars w/ Android Smartphone! [Astrophotography]

In today’s tutorial, I will be showing you how to shoot stars with an Android smartphone.   For this to work, you will need an Android smartphone with shutter speed of 20 to 30 seconds.  I do highly recommend the latest LG V40 or Huawei P20 Pro, both which can do up to 30 seconds.  All LG smartphones also can do this such as LG G7, LG V30, LG V20, and LG G6 and I think most Huawei phones can do it also.  Just avoid Samsung for star photography as Samsung Galaxy smartphones are not recommended as maximum shutter speed is only 10 seconds(you will be able to get some stars but not enough). I will be using the LG V40 for this tutorial.

How to Film Professional Videos w/ Android Smartphone! [Part II]

In my first article about How to Film Professional Videos w/ Android Smartphone, we covered the basic of using a tripod, fluid-head, and using the LG V20 manual video mode to get professional quality videos from a smartphone.  In this part II, we go in more depth by taking our smartphone out in the field with the latest LG V40, which has a ton of improvements over the V20.  Of course, you do NOT need an LG V40 but preferably a phone that has good video quality such as the Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S9/S8, or even Xiaomi Mi8 or Pocophone would work.

Tip 1 – If your smartphone has EIS, TURN IT OFF!

How to OTA Update Rooted Pixel Phones Without Computer!

In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to apply OTA(Over-The-Air) update on rooted Pixel Phones(such as Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, and Pixel 3 XL) without a computer by using Google’s very own OTA files, which you can actually flash with TWRP recovery.  You can also keep root and TWRP after doing the OTA by simply flashing Magisk again and TWRP again.  And you can do this ALL without a computer, which makes it simple and you can do it from anywhere in the world.

How to Run Fortnite on ANY Rooted Android!

This tutorial, I am going to show you how to run Fortnite on ANY rooted Android device! While there have been many attempts to run Fornite on a rooted Android device, none of them actually work at the moment(as of 3:36PM August 10th 2018) but after reverse-engineering the Fornite app, I was able to figure out how to run Fornite on ANY rooted Android device.  Now, if you change your device ID using build prop editor, you will be able to download the Fornite game from the Fornite Installer app.  And you will be able to run the app and start the game.  The problem is that Fornite will STILL detect root when you jump off the bus!   Well, the last part took me about 10 hours to figure out and I almost gave up but here’s the full solution you can follow step-by-step.

How to Get Free Inflight/Hotel WiFi for Family & Friends!

If you have been paying for your Inflight WiFi or Hotel WiFi, you may want to learn about how to share your paid WiFi with your family or friends (or even by yourself).  In my recent trip back from Las Vegas, I paid $8 on SouthWest for their Inflight WiFi.  Well, I never got to use the “WiFi Sharing” mode on my phones so I decided to use it.  And voila, I was able to share my $8 Inflight WiFi with my dad and mom who were sitting next to me.  If I didn’t use this WiFi Sharing method, they would have also paid $8 each to use the Inflight WiFi.

How to Find a Lost Android Phone! [Find My Phone App]

Lost your Android phone?  Perhaps one of the worst places is your own house, which happens to me many times.  Before using this method, I would usually find my phone by simply calling it from one of my other phones.  But that method might fail if you have your phone on silent!  How to fix the issue?

How to Make DIY Dome Glass Tempered Glass for Galaxy S9, S9+, Note 8, S8, S8+!

In this video, I show you how to make DIY dome glass tempered glass for your Samsung Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, Note 8, S8, S8 Plus, and you can also use this method on pretty much any smartphone to apply loca glue with tempered glass so your touch sensitivity and glare stays the same as if you didn’t have tempered glass on.  I got this idea from the Dome Glass screen protector, which is good but I thought you could just do it yourself and save some money, especially if you have more than one phone.
