How to Install Android 9.0 Pie ROM on Xiaomi Mi8!

This is a tutorial on how to install Android 9.0 Pie ROM such as the LineageOS 16 ROM, Pixel 3 ROM, or Pixel Experience ROM on your Xiaomi Mi8.  There are several guides floating on the internet but none of them work 100% of the time so I had to figure out exactly how to install Android 9.0 Pie ROMs on my Mi8 and here’s the process I came up with that works everytime so you don’t have to spend 2 days like I did trying to install a ROM and end up in a bootloop.   The Xiaomi Mi8 is slightly complicated beast compared to other Android phones and even as an Android expert, it took me a quite awhile to figure this out so follow the tutorial if you want to save yourself some headache and most importantly spend more time with your family.  Doing it right will only take you 10-20 minutes.

How to Convert AT&T/Sprint/Verizon LG G6 to Canadian!

In this tutorial, I show you(well more like make a video while doing it) how to convert AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon LG G6 to Canadian. For AT&T & Sprint users, this will also FULLY unlock your SIM. For Verizon, I think it actually unlocks all the GSM bands(not 100% sure yet) and also gets rid of Verizon bloatware/warning messages.  You WILL need a Windows computer as LG tools are only for Windows.

How to Install Pixel 3 Camera Night Sight on Pixel/Pixel XL/Pixel 2/Pixel 2XL/Pixel 3/Pixel 3XL!

Google Pixel 3’s Night Sight is available now if you install the modded Pixel 3 camera APK for all Pixel smartphones including Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2XL, Pixel 3, and Pixel3 XL.  Now, this is a “beta” Night Sight that Google is probably working on, this is not the official Night Sight.  Upon trying the Night Sight, it looks very promising.  From what I understand, the Night Sight is basically HDR+ Enhanced super powered by taking more than 5 exposures and stitching them together to bring  you even brighter photos in low light.

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 Fix Magisk “Response is Invalid” Error & Pass SafetyNet! [Android Root]

If you are not passing SafetyNet recently or getting the error, “The response is invalid”,  there’s a few ways you can fix it and pass SafetyNet check.  Earlier this month, Google has updated their SafetyNet protocol with SafetyNet Attestation API, which means that developer of apps must get a private key and also gets a “limit” on how many times they can use the API.  In layman’s words, this means that after a certain number of API requests(or people checking SafetyNet on Magisk Manager app), it will give the response, “The response is invalid”.  Now, this DOES NOT mean your Android device does not pass SafetyNet.  It simply means SafetyNet must be checked using other methods.
