    Running Stock Android Without Using Google

    ASOP runs on the Linux kernel. As such, it depends on the chipsets used and whether they use free firmware or if you need manufacturer-proprietary blobs. Nonetheless, I think that since the Galaxy S4, an Android AOSP Generic System Image... Second to that, the sad thing is that AOSP doesn't...

    apple unsecurity

    Yeah, Apple devices are strongly targeted by NSO group. They invest millions of dollars in the exploits needed to inject Pegasus in those devices, I bet that is because they research what devices are most used by the targets of such industralialised malware. Nothing really surprising, I would say.

    Running Stock Android Without Using Google

    The only support officially pixel devices for production, but they state that the compatibility at a source code level is the same of AOSP. That means that if you manage to package it for your device, it may work. Anyway, I get that you want something to download and flash, which I understand...

    One Instance of Linux inside other

    That sounds like when we use chroot to test a development kernel that drags with itself a lot of unstable dependnecies. Check this as a lead to read more: chroot and kernels The only thing is that we would only be able to run one kernel at a time without a virtualisation solution, so probably...

    Running Stock Android Without Using Google

    What about GrapheneOS? You can choose either to not run Google Services at all, or follow their "official" way to sandbox them if you'd chose to.

    Mud dauber nest on motherboard?

    I was very skeptic and I haven't tried this yet, but water seems to be OK, provided that: you remove all the charge on the motherboard by taking the CMOS battery out and leaving it connected to ground for a while after powering off. you dry it quickly. This can be done by submersion in...

    Not loading battery to 100%

    Good luck, let's see if the TLP documentation is wrong!

    Not loading battery to 100%

    Lastly: if you run sudo tlp-stat -b after plugging the AC adapter and you can't see the thresholds applied, unplug the AC adapter, and then replug it, and re-run sudo tlp-stat -b. TLP is tricky on what conditions over the power source would trigger the changes in thresholds to take effect (that...

    Not loading battery to 100%

    So, here's the thing: Manjaro Gnome Live (the full thing, not the minimal) loads both TLP and natacpi by default. So what you need to check is whether your battery supports thresholds, not your laptop, and it's going to be a feature "declared" by the battery and picked up, is possible, by...

    Not loading battery to 100%

    I am running a ThinkPad, but I'm not so sure that it's only for these. As it depends on a module which is not part of the TLP project, you may find some support, too. Anyway let me reboot in a live boot and come back to you to see whether or not you can give it a try.

    Not loading battery to 100%

    You should be able to test this with a live system, but if the live image doesn’t install natacpi by default it may require some good advanced terminal usage to load the modules without rebooting. Depending on the distribution it may or may not be possible at all. Later today I will be able to...

    Not loading battery to 100%

    For Windows needs to be manufacturer-specific, as it is a function of the battery embedded controller that the ntacpi exposes for Linux if your laptop supports such module. For example in my case, when I had Windows for my laptop that was done through Lenovo Vantage (I have a ThinkPad).

    Not loading battery to 100%

    Yes, that's supported, subject to hardware compatibility. If your laptop supports the module natacpi, then you can do that with TLP. As you can see in the next screenshot I start charging my laptop when it goes below 75% and stop charging at 85%. You need to configure the thresholds in the...

    If you are thinking of using WSL you may want to think again.

    Yeah, it is complex, and it's hard to understand if you don't grow your knowledge starting from the basics,... but that's the same as everything in security. Starting with the password and second factor of authentication basics, and all the way down to the rest. We think everything is safe by...
