Android 5.1 Rumors

Android 5.1 Rumors

Statue

Android 5.0 (Lollipop) isn’t even available for most Android phones yet, but Google may already be working on an update for the software.

A new version of Android called 5.1 is reportedly coming in February, according to the blog “Android Pit

The blog claims to have spoken with two “trusted sources” familiar with the situation.

Based on the reported list of new features coming in the update, it sounds like some minor improvements and bug fixes are coming.

One notable fix, for example, seems to be the addition of a silent mode to Lollipop.

When Android 5.0 was initially released in November, users complained about the lack of a “silent mode” for notifications. Rather, users can choose from three options when it comes to notifications: None, Priority, or All.

“None” keeps your phone entirely silent, which also means your screen doesn’t light up when you get a text or notification. “Priority” mode silences almost everything except for alarms, and only allows notifications from certain designated contacts to come through. And “All”, as you can imagine, just allows all notifications to come through normally with sound.

Here’s a list of features and bug fixes that will supposedly come with Android 5.1.

  • Silent mode added after missing on Android 5.0
  • General improvements in system stability
  • Improved RAM management
  • Fixes for sudden app closures
  • Improved battery management
  • Excessive consumption of network devices when used Wi-Fi fixed
  • Issues with wireless connections fixed
  • Problems with Okay Google function solved
  • Notifications problems solved
  • Some sound problems experience by certain devices fixed
  • Other improvements and changes
  • Changes in the Material Design color palette (after users complaints, possibly for a higher version though)

RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless File Wireless Filehub

RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless File Wireless Filehub / Portable Travel Router

Something i never used before is this RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless Filehub / Portable Travel Router  but theres so much more to it than just the title. It is probably the best investment I have made for ALL my mobile devices. I was on the fence about what wireless wifi storage to get Seagate, Kingston Wi-drive, Airstash and lots more but decided on the ravpower. Main reason was that it had a micro SD card slot and USB port to connect a multitude of different storage devices. And lets be honest, how many SD cards, microsd cards, portable hard drives and usb flash drives do we have laying around? There is soooo much potential with this product and some very nice surprises that I found out that makes this wifi disk a MUST have for all the tech geeks in us.

Bonus, it doubles up as external battery pack. 6,000mah may not be a lot but it does come in handy in those critical must have a charge situations. Specs:

Wireless wi-fi storage and external battery pack 6000mah
Micro SD card slot
USB slot

The size of the wifi disk is about the size of a small portable hard drive, fits perfect in the palm of your hand and thats perfect size in my opinion.

To connect to the device you must make a wifi connection to it. It is named “WiFiSD-158E” and the password is “11111111”. That is 8 ones BTW.

Performance:

I was able to pick up a wide array of storage media. SD card, microsd , Flash drives ranging from 4gb to 32gb with many different brands. It was able to power a Seagate portable hard drive no problem while a SD card was also in the sd card slot.

Many different devices were used to connect to the wifi disk: Nexus 7, Nexus 10, Ipad 4, Acer laptop, Coby Cryos android tablet, galaxy S3, Iphone 5 and a t-mobile S2.

It says that up to 5 devices can be connected to it.

I was able to play all sorts of video files from it, divx/xvid, avi, mp4, mkv, mov…..720p,1080p. It handled it like a champ.

I connected 5 devices and tried to stream a divx file all at the same time. It worked flawlessly, no stutters, no audio drops.
Now I dunno about HD 720p or 1080p files with 5 devices trying to stream from it. Will try more tests later.

You can access your connected storage via 3 different ways:

Now, you can use the recommended mobile apps mobile fun (android) and airstor (IOS) to connect to the device to see your connected storage options. They are nice clean simple apps. Reminds me of an “ES Explorer” type file explorer. Pretty fast, smooth and it simply just works. The one thing the APP is a must for is to make it a wifi hotspot. What that means is that you can configure it to connect to your regular home internet router so that when your device is connected to it; you can still have internet access. Basically it acts like a wireless bridge for your router. Once configured you don’t have to use the apps ever again.

You can even use your browser to go to “10.10.10.254” and connect via a web interface. The default username is “admin” and there is no password. You can configure it to have a password; which I did via a wizard tutorial. This is nice since you can connect your laptop to it and access the connected storage.

The last option was a little thing I figured out and was pleasantly surprised! The wifi disk can be accessed via ANY file explorer app that can make SAMBA/SMB connections! File explorers such as “ES Explorer” and “Solid Explorer” have this ability. I personally recommend solid explorer (more on that in a bit).

You just have to set it up

For solid explorer press the “jump” button, then “Network” and then “SMB/CIFS” button. Jump>Network>SMB/CIFS
Now press the plus sign button at the top right. It will cause a popup that you will need to fill in the appropriate info.

Display name: can be left blank
Computer name or ip address: enter 10.10.10.254
Authentication method: can set as “Log in as guess” if you did not use the web interface to make a pass word. If you did make a password set it as “store encrypted password”
Username: admin
password: whatever password you made via the web interface

Now you should be able use the file explorer to navigate the connected storage options:

SDCARD-Volume1 = SD card slot
USBDisk-Volume1 = USB port connected storage

Now you don’t need an extra app to use the wifi disk. Use the file explorer you love and know!

Solid Explorer is my recommendation because it has the two pane option when in landscape mode. With the two panel mode, you can navigate to the “SD card” with pane 1 and then navigate to the “usb port” with pane 2. This will allow you to transfer files between the “sd card” and the “usb port” storage seamlessly and easily! There was a step by step guide on amazon how to transfer files between two attached storage options on the wifi disk, but this makes it sooooo much easier!

Build Quality: Seems solid, not too flimsy but quite light. Nice colored LED’s that aren’t too bright.

Gripes about it:

Only comes in white; no black option. It sticks out like a sore thumb next to all my other devices.
Does not come with a wall charger; but will use any usb charger which in my opinion are VERY minor.

If you would like to pick on up you can get it for about $50.00 from Amazon HERE

Installation

  1. Download Framaroot on to your device
  2. Install it with a file explorer or directly from your internet browser, if android warn you about security risk, say OK  ( most android rooting apps with be flagged as a security risk since they are a exploit of some kind ) and check Unknown sources to allow install of applications.

CF Auto Root

CF Auto Root

CF Auto Root is a really easy to use Root method created by Chainfire hence the CF and he is also the creator of SuperSU app along with many other awesome Android Apps. This root method is compatible with most Samsung and Google Nexus Devices it works with either the Odin Program or Fastboot commands for the Nexus devices check here to see if your device is compatible with this amazing CF AUTO ROOT TOOL 

NOTE- When selecting the Right CF auto root files to download it will be helpful to go into your device setting and then about phone or tablet and look at the info there then match it up with the info on the site downloads.

How to use Odin and Fastboot

ODIN flashable devices

odin

 

BASIC INSTRUCTIONS

All downloads contain .tar.md5 files flashable in ODIN as PDA.

Make sure your device is in ODIN download mode (usually you can get there by holding VolDown+Home+Power when the device is turned off), then start the included Odin3-v1.85.exe file, press the PDA button, select the .tar.md5 file, and click Start. You can find more detailed instructions and assistance at XDA.

A modified recovery and cache partition will be flashed, which will install (only) SuperSU, then clean-up the cache partition and re-flash the stock recovery.

For the root to work, the device must reboot into recovery. Most devices will do this automatically after flashing these files, but in case that does not happen, please boot into recovery manually.

UNLOCK BOOTLOADERS

If you have locked bootloaders, flashing one of these will probably brick your device – with the exception of Nexus devices, which will usually automatically “OEM unlock” and wipe your data !

 

Download the Odin Program you will need HERE

Download the samsung usb drivers for your computer if you dont already have them HERE

 

Fastboot flashable devices

fastboot

BASIC INSTRUCTIONS

All downloads contain .img files bootable through Fastboot.

Make sure your device is in Fastboot mode (usually you can get there by holding VolUp+VolDown+Power when the device is turned off), then run the included script for your OS. On Linux and Mac, you may have to chmod +x root-linux/mac.sh before the script does anything.

A special boot image will load, which will install (only) SuperSU, then reboot into Android.

UNLOCK BOOTLOADERS

The included scripts perform an “OEM unlock”. If this fails, the root will not work. If it succeeds, and you were not previously unlocked (first time rooting ?), it will probably wipe your data !

For some device (Sony, Verizon, etc) you may need an OEM-specific tool to unlock the bootloader. Please do not forget to check and use this tool, if provided by the OEM.

Download the fastboot files you will need for WIndows HERE
