Fairplay JJF. Appreciate that.
What’s a plug and play usb 3?


#382

Plug and play is ya don’t need a ac power adapter harddrive gets its power of the device it’s plugged into. USB 3 is the latest in usb connectivity so if your laptop has usb 3 as well it we’ll transfer data at a much faster rate. If your laptop has usb 2 it will transfer st that rate. You whop a load of video files on that and if you had a smart tv with a built in player it can play back the files on the drive.

Thanks. Sounds like it’s worth getting.

I find Argos good, get a email receipt and keep it safe.

This suits your budget three year warranty I have two in work and they are fine!

Flashing an old Asus tablet , running android 4.4.2
Any links for downloading some ROMs ( any version of android above that version ) & reliable methods .


#387

Worth a punt

YouTube there’s a Savage amount of Tut’s on there


#388

Well , i was pleasantly surprised at how this turned out. I installed the Intel drivers for Android devices on the PC .Then installed MeMO_Pad_7_RootKit.zip ( specific to the tablet ) onto the pc. Connected up the tablet & then ran the root file . It worked in minutes.Then downloaded Titanium Backup from Google Store . So the tablet is rooted , next step is to find a file for lollipop or upwards. That’s the end game .And that’s for another day…

???.₩TF… in the meantime I bought 2 new colouring books.


#390

Did you try GitHub?


#391

Im just trying to figure out is there a stock download for it . There seems to be restrictions on these old tablets where they just don’t bother giving updates for the android os.


#392

OK so unless the tablet can update OTA i don’t think ill be able to upgrade the OS as its too old / probably not supporting the model .
Seems you can download a launcher to resemble the look of android oreo . Will give it a spin.


#393

Them launchers never really work to be honest. What version of Android do you have it on?


#394

Really ?
Its kitkat 4.4.2 i think . For all the benefits of android , installing a new os unless it updates itself is a pain in the hoop . I’ve yet to find a site where it simply says " download lollipop" for example .


#395

You need to be buying devices with the Android one programme. Hopefully when Android releases fuchia it will solve a lot of problems. Take that tablet and sell it KitKat not worth a damn, far too old.


#396

Yeah , it’s not worth a ■■■■ really .
I don’t use that much but was hoping to give it a new lease of life .

I’ve a couple of notification issues on Android at the mo, wonder if anyone has similar?
1st is with an Android watch.
I’ve been having trouble where it has stopped giving me notifications from WhatsApp (all others are working fine like email, text messages, calls etc).
It was working grand until a couple of weeks ago but just stopped.
I’ve gone through all the settings I can find and can’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be working, however I’ve seen somewhere online that it might be a WhatsApp issue when they last updated their app, so just wondering if anyone else has the same issue?

Other issue is on my phone, where I have a few different gmail accounts, but for some reason just 1 of them has stopped giving notifications of new emails (it still seems to be getting the new mails, just not notifying me when they come in)
All the other accounts seem to be working grand, Again I have gone through and compared everything and can’t see any difference. Anyone ever come across this before?


#398

Are you using Google inbox to manage multiple accounts? What Android watch are you using?


#399

No, just the gmail app, worked fine for me for years that way!
