Here’s a quick tutorial on how to unbrick/unroot your Xiaomi Android device stuck on fastboot. Sometimes your Xiaomi device can get stuck on fastboot like it did several times for me on my Xiaomi Mi 9 while installing a custom ROM. If you happen to flash the wrong stuff, this can easily happen but no worries, there’s an easy fix.
In this tutorial I show you how to update your firmware(OxygenOS) to latest and install custom ROM on a rooted OnePlus 5T. Why do this? Well, a lot of custom ROMs like Havoc ROM I am installing here does require you to have installed the latest factory firmware(OxygenOS) at least once before you can even install the ROM. This is case with most newer custom ROMs.
Every year, Samsung releases the Galaxy Note series about 6 months after the S series. For example, the Galaxy S10 was launched in March earlier this year and the new Galaxy Note 10 will be available at end of August. This timing “gap” allows means you are getting much of the same but paying a lot more.
FCC accidentally put some of the upcoming Galaxy Note 10 photos on their website.
According to the photos, Galaxy Note 10 will have no notch(as usual with Samsung thank God) and the camera seemed to be in the bezel area, not in-display like the Galaxy S10/S10 Plus. Which I think is much better since I am always swiping over the front camera with my Galaxy S10.
So, I own around 200 Android smartphones, have grown from smartphones with Gorilla Glass 1 all the way to the latest Gorilla Glass 6 and have never broken a screen when dropped onto flat surface. On my 3rd day of using my brand, new Google Pixel 3A XL with a case(that Google sent me), I dropped it while taking out of my pocket but thankfully it was only a 1-foot drop as I caught it sort of in mid air and didn’t catch it. Upon picking it up, I notice two cracks that appeared. Since I dropped it on a flat surface with the case on, the case’s lip actually prevented the screen from touching the ground. So it got me wondering, how did it break?
