How to Install GSI ROM on ANY Android Device w/ Project Treble & Unlocked Bootloader! [TWRP Method]

For those of you who want to install Project Treble GSI(Generic System Image) ROM on your Android device with unlocked bootloader, you can use TWRP recovery to install them.  The process is actually not entirely different from flashing a regular custom ROM in TWRP, the only difference is that you will be using “Install from image” option instead of the default “Install from zip” option.  (If you don’t know what Project Treble is, please see “What is Project Treble for Android”.

What are GSI ROMs?

How to Install Android 9.0 Pie w/ Root on OnePlus One!

For those of you who have a OnePlus One, Android 9.0 Pie is now available through a custom ROM called PSOP(Potato Open Sauce Project).   Now, this ROM has pretty much everything working out of the box including voice calls, 4G LTE, Bluetooth, NFC, etc…etc… Developer says GPS is a bit wonky but seems to work fine for me after using the GPS Fix app on the Play Store.  Battery life is excellent(as you will also be able to benefit from Android 9.0 30% improved battery) as the new Android P will prioritize apps and save battery by shutting down apps wasting battery life.  Performance is also excellent with Antutu scores of 66,000.  For right now, this seems like the best way to experience Android Pie 9.0 on your OnePlus One.  I’ve also tested calls both on speakers and bluetooth with my car bluetooth and they seemed to work flawless.  While many other Android devices have trouble with bluetooth, OnePlus One does well as it was designed to work well with AOSP(What is AOSP?).

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 Clean Smartphone w/o Scratching the Screen!

Cleaning a smartphone’s screen may be one of the simplest daily tasks but do you know how to properly clean your smartphone without scratching the screen?  I asked my Twitter followers the same question and over 50% of the people clean their smartphone with their shirt.   While that seems like the simplest logical answer, you may actually be scratching the screen every time you do this.

How to Cheat ANY Android Game w/ Macro Auto Click! [Bee Swarm Simulator Hack][Android Game Hack #1]

Recently, I started playing a Roblox game called “Bee Swarm Simulator” with my daughter Peony and the game requires the user to collect pollen.  Now, on Android devices, this requires the user to repetitively press the touchscreen for 10-20 minutes to acquire more pollen to make honey.  Well, I am almost 40 and have trouble with my hands when it comes to tapping my screen repetitively.  I couldn’t play the game for long on my Android smartphone and wanted to find a better way to do it without hurting my hands.
