We got another toy – Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Backpack (3,100 mAh). Model EP-TG935. It makes your S7 bulky and can charge it wirelessly for about 80% of full charge. Images of unboxing below.
A little bit earlier than usual, a little ahead of the official Samsung S7 edge launch, we got a new testing device.
- IP68 Water & Dust Resistance
- 4G LTE
- 64bit Octa Core Processor
- 4GB RAM
- 12MP front camera
- Black Onyx
Plus we got two presents – Gear VR and S Charger Vehicle Dock (Frost White).
First impressions? Feels very similar to Galaxy S6 Edge+, but screen is noticeably smaller. And Gear VR box says, that is not compatible with Galaxy S7 edge, but of course it is.
We got a new testing device – LG G3 (international model D855) with 32GB internal memory and 3GB RAM. It seems, that this is Asia’s model, not European. Manufactured Nov 2014, with Android version 4.4.2, LG Software version V10m-TWN-XX.
To root we used: PurpleDrake-Lite!
Then use this tutorial to Bump: Bump! Workaround for the LG G3 Locked Bootloader – XDA TV.
And do not forget to backup your stock ROM and all the partitions, including both EFS (your IMEI, etc.).
If you have only 64GB and 128GB MicroSD memory cards available (like us), then to workaround TWRP limitation (it does not support exFAT), use USB-OTG cable with any USB Flash drive (smaller than 64GB and formatted with FAT32). See image gallery for more details.
We used USB OTG cable and flash drive to install Cloudyfa’s ROM for LG G3, version 2.1 from TWRP. It comes with Aroma installer, and setup is very straightforward.
And at the end the new Google’s Android 5.0 (Lollipop) surprised us – it does not like the password provided by Google Two Factor authentication (aka App passwords). It shows error message: “Please enter your Google Account password”. It means that it recognizes your App password, but does not like it. It may be related to the fact, that two factor auth is built into Lollipop. Go figure…
