Any good backup solution for non-rooted android device ?

I want to backup some apps and app data in a zip file and be able to restore it into a device.

It's okay if I have to use something like shizuku to enable backups.

  • I find Boost for lemmy to work really well for me. I also use Voyager as a backup.

  • Is there any solution available for controlling the volume without pressing the physical volume buttons ?
  • Thanks for sharing this, but I have found another way to control the volume. I'm using back taps on my phone to control the volume now. It's very convenient.

    I have edited my post to include how I enabled this.

  • Is there any solution available for controlling the volume without pressing the physical volume buttons ?

    So I just bought a OnePlus 12 recently, I was used to controlling volume using the onehand operations goodlock module in my Samsung galaxy S23. I basically never had to press the volume buttons to control the volume unless absolutely necessary.

    Possible ways I've thought of (it would be really great if at all possible) -

    1. Using the curved edges in phone screen for volume control.

    2. Using the gestures to control volume when the screen is off.

    3. Setting Diagonal swiping gestures to do different functions, controlling volume in this case.

  • Bruh I just got the OnePlus 12... Welp..

    Pixel pricing is horrendous in my region anyway.

  • My msi motherboard randomly erases boot entries, I have to keep the computer on for a few minutes and reboot so that my other boot entry appears.

    It maybe a problem with the m.2 slot, but it has been the case ever since I bought the motherboard.

    Anyways I'm gonna stick to a different manufacturer for my motherboard if I'm building a new PC.

  • MOONDROP MIAD01 English product page
  • I was surprised to see moondrop releasing an android device. If they can keep it affordable it will sell well.

  • Earphones for mobile gaming
  • I think the 7hz salnotes zero (not the zero 2) don't have that much bass. It may fit the bill.

  • And then you get hooked on it and start using it for real
  • At that point BSD will take the place of linux I guess.

  • Which of these VPS providers would you recommend?
  • I have tried Buyvm when I was getting into selfhosting during the pandemic.

    They were pretty cheap too, not sure about the pricing these days but you should take a look.

  • What's your fave "No thoughts, head empty" music to listen to?
  • Recently I have started using this app called Nightwave Plaza. It has a surprisingly good selection of chill music that I can play in the background.

  • Am I the only one whose "shorts" feed is all basically softcore porn?
  • From the image, I have seen 3 of them on my youtube homepage.

    It's such a distraction while you are browsing for videos... Recently I have been trying this extension to block off shorts. I think it works for the most part.

    Hope this helps someone.

  • In search of a non-existent thing
  • I still try interesting distros but the ones I daily drive are usually Arch or Tumbleweed (Void linux came close)

    My favourite arch based distro is CachyOS so far, been working really well for me for the past 5 months or so.

  • Which DE/WM do you prefer?
  • I daily drive Window managers but occasionally I also check out Desktop environments. Here is my personal preference -

    DE

    1. XFCE
    2. KDE
    3. Cinnamon

    WM

    1. Hyprland
    2. BSPWM
    3. Openbox / Labwc
  • Which DE/WM do you prefer?
  • Don't wait. Get Linux Mint Cinnamon / LMDE on a USB and install it.

    If you don't like Debian based or Linux Mint for some reason, then check out Nobara or Fedora KDE spin. EndeavourOS is also great.

  • Hate it when that happens
  • Hah.. I used to search up an issue and see my own unanswered question on reddit as the first result. ಠ_ಠ

  • C O L O N I Z E
  • Nah it needs more red, but it's getting there.

  • Opera is testing letting you download LLMs for local use, a first for a major browser
  • Thats a cool feature for sure but I don't trust opera.

  • What are some underrated yet well paid jobs that one should consider and why ?

    Looking forward to seeing some interesting jobs I haven't really thought about. Bonus points if it's an IT job.

    How can a person be very sad, irritated or angry and still not show it on their face ?

    I'm not good with masking my emotions sometimes, although I do try to process the things before I take any action.

    My face and body language on the other hand can reflect what I'm going through at the moment.

    Are you aware of any ways to control yourself under difficult situations (apart from things like meditation) ?

    [SOLVED] Steam on hyprland is not launching most of my games

    I'm using CachyOS (arch based), the steam package being used is from CachyOS's repositories. I'm using an AMD RX6600. Monitor is using 144hz refresh rate (set using hyprland config file)

    All my Games are in an NTFS partition.

    So far CS2 is the only game that opens up when I click on 'Play' and it is playable with some occasional frame drops.

    I had the same issue with flatpak steam when I tried earlier.

    I have tried setting the my monitor as primary by using xrandr but that didn't help at all.

    Has this happened to anyone ? What can I do to fix this ? I can attach any logs if required.

    Edit: thanks to @[email protected] my issue has been solved.

    (Mentioning the solution here in case the reddit post gets deleted)

    • Look for a directory called "compatdata" under ~/.steam.
    • It'll probably take some digging, as it's often buried in something like ~/.steam/steam/steamapps . . .
    • The "find" command would be useful in this situation!
    • Make a symbolic link from that folder to the identical location on the NTFS Steam Library.
    • ln -s ~/.steam/foo/bar/compatdata /path/to/ntfs/SteamLibrary/compatdata
    • That's it.

    How do I add a udev rule in NixOS to set my AMD GPU's performance level to 'high' ?

    So I have been experiencing screen blackout when I use any refresh rate above 60Hz. On Arch I was able to solve this by setting a udev rule as mentioned in this ArchWiki article but it seems like I can't do the same in NixOS using the traditional way. Is there anything I need to add in the configuration.nix file to achieve the same ?

    Need advice on buying an IEM (under $50)

    I have been considering buying an IEM that would be a step up from my older BLON BL03 and QKZ x HBB.

    So far I have narrowed down to these 3 -

    1. Truthear x Crinacle Zero (red)
    2. Simgot EW200
    3. 7hz Sonus

    I found one more IEM - KZ PR-2 or PR-3

    I mostly listen to Rock, metal, jazz, blues and some occasional cinematic soundtracks (like Hans Zimmer). I also want to use the IEM to play games like Apex Legends.

    I want it to last for sometime (if possible) unlike my blon - the shells come off every now and then and its annoying.

    If there are any other IEMs I should consider please let me know. I just want the best value for money IEM that sounds good

    Does anyone know a gtk theme that has similar aesthetics to this gnome shell theme ?

    Marble Gnome Shell Theme

    I want to have a similar aesthetics on xfce.

    Also please feel free to mention your favourite xfce or gtk themes in general.

    P.S - I'm sorry if this is not the right place to ask.

    Has anyone tried ZLUDA yet ?

    I'm really curious if it works with Stable diffusion frontends like Automatic1111, webui-forge, fooocus, comfy-ui etc.

    What's the best Anime watching app available for android currently ?

    The app needs to be open source. Being able to watch Kdrama and things like that will be nice to have but not really a big deal for me.

    So far I have tried Saikou, Dantotsu and Mangayomi. Recently been having issues loading anime episodes in Dantotsu and Mangayomi. Saikou seems to be no longer maintained If i'm not wrong.

    Please mention your recommendations in the comments. (Also if these apps use any extensions like Aniyomi/Tachiyomi does, please also mention your prefered one)

    Edit : Latest version of Dantotsu and Mangayomi seems to be working fine.

    Can I run a different GPU driver in distrobox ?

    I don't want to change drivers on my host Distro as I want to game on it. I'm currently using the open source amdgpu drivers for my rx 6600.

    The idea is to use the distrobox containers for running software like oogabooga text-chat-webui and stable diffusion, fooocus etc.

    I don't know if that works but I thought I'd ask.

    A question about running LLMs with an AMD card

    On my machine I'm running opensuse tumbleweed and has the amdgpu driver installed. I use it for gaming and recently I've become interested in running LLMs. So I would like to keep a balance of both without compromising too much on performance.

    I know that there are proprietary drivers for AMD cards but I'm hesitant to install it as I've heard that it performs less efficiently in games when compared to the open source driver.

    I'm mainly confused about this ROCM thing. Is it not included with the opensource amdgpu drivers ? Or is it available as a separate package?

    So what driver to use ?

    Or perhaps, is it possible to run oogabooga or stable diffusion within a distrobox container (with the proprietary drivers) and still keep using the open source gpu drivers for the Host operating system.

    What will happen to my esim if I unlock and root my android device ?

    I have never used esim, but I'm considering trying it out on my Samsung galaxy s23.

    The thing is - I will probably unlock my device when the warranty period is over. So If I unlock the device while esim is enabled, what will happen to the esim(s) ?

    Will I have to register for a new esim or use my physical SIM card again to get back my esim ?

    Noob here, what's the best overall model for getting started with ?

    I have an rx 6600 and 16gb of ram and an i5 10400f

    I am using oobabooga web-ui and I happened to have a gguf file of LLama2-13B-Tiefighter.Q4_K_S .

    But it always says that the connection errored out when I load the model.

    Anyway, please suggest any good model that I can get started with.

    Display blacks out while opening and closing applications on Wayland KDE.

    I just got a AMD RX6600 because I was having issues with my old gtx 1660 super. It's not a big upgrade but I got this card for $120 (and it was only lightly used for 5 months by the seller).

    I wanted to give wayland a try and It was working fine for a few hours but now, the screen blacks out every time I open or close an application.

    I have tried restarting, logging out and logging back in. Also updated the system, mesa packages etc. (This is on a fresh install of Opensuse Tumbleweed, but I also had the same issue on my Artix install with xfce)

    Strangely enough, the issue doesn't seem to affect my Hyprland session much. Now it's also coming in my Hyprland session.

    The GPU works fine on Windows too. No black screen there.

    EDIT: I fixed it. I enabled the packman repo at some point, which had slightly older packages and that caused the problem. Everything got sorted out once I deprioritized the packman repo and updated the system.

    If the motherboard debug led for VGA lights up, does that mean that there's an issue with the GPU or is it possible that the PCIe slot is faulty ?

    I have a gtx 1660 super which turns off in the middle of doing something. I don't get any output to my monitor and even restarting doesn't solve the problem. It is quite random and very frustrating to say the least. The only solution I have now is to wait for an hour or so and restart - I'll get display output if I'm lucky.

    When the gpu stops, the motherboard debug led doesn't light up. The led lights up only when I restart the PC.

    Is there any way to check if the issue lies with the motherboard or the gpu without using another graphics card ?

    (I dont have integrated graphics either, because I have an i5 10400f)

    My motherboard is - MSI B460 M Pro VDH wifi

    EDIT: Got a 4 month used rx 6600 for ~ $120 and now this problem no longer happens. it's not a substantial upgrade from my 1660 Super but an upgrade nonetheless.

    Is it possible to fix an unlocked Xiaomi device at an authorized service center ?

    My grandfather has an old redmi note 9 pro which was slowing down so much and was having a lot of issues with call connectivity.

    Outgoing calls won't connect and incoming calls would hangup automatically, so It was kind of impossible to use the phone for calls.

    I unlocked the device and flashed a few roms based on android 13 and android 14, but all of them had the same issues with calls.

    So if it is a hardware problem, will Xiaomi service centers accept it ?
