Review: The 2024 Motorola Razr+ will not give up its throne
  • My bad. Well, obviously Motorola has 14 configured and available for this device, so I don't know what to tell you.

    Luckily, my gov't now forces providers to un-network-lock devices after a certain waiting period (60 days?), and the bootloader seems to be unlockable! I'm not feeling like a slave, just paying more for the phone than what I signed up for.

    Edit: I'll always trust Motorola over, say, Samsung, where the Galaxy S-whatever (US version) and the same name device (International version) even have a completely different processor!

  • I have a Verizon Razr+ 2023 (on an MVNO), and it's now running Android 14.

    Ask your service provider why they are holding back updates.

    Edit: 14 fixed one of my annoying issues with this phone; the outer screen did not play nice with certain keyboards (I like Unexpected Keyboard). Now you can choose different keyboards for each screen.

  • Spectrum Mobile makes offers that they won't honor. Phone trade-ins through Assurant are a bait-and-switch scam. AMA

    I sent in two phones for an offered $1600 total promotional bill credits.

    One phone rejected, for the reason: "won't power on". I videoed myself opening the box on the returned phone, pressing the power button, and turning the phone on, booting into Pixel setup.

    The other, Spectrum is trying to give me $200 credit for.

    I spent hours on the phone with support from both of these scam companies. Do not deal with either of them, you have been warned.

    PC gamers are finally embracing the controller, as usage triples [increase to 15% from 5% over the last six years]
  • It's interesting that using Xim-like devices (Cronus Zen/Cronus Max) is a bannable offence on some games. They have to draw the line somewhere... one could build a device using OpenCV to recognize enemy characters and auto-aim towards them, basically adding aim-assist to games that don't have it.

  • I just played through Portal again, using a DualShock 4... up until Test Chamber 18. It was simply not possible to look left/right without ever-so-slightly moving, enough to miss falling back into the portal. Mouse and keyboard- cleared it instantly.

    Edit: I may try again, using a controller that has 8-way detents on the analog sticks (i.e. GameCube gamepad)

  • Are there any games you're planning to pick up during the Steam and GOG sales?
  • Thanks, I'll check it out! Recently also got Celeste, Blasphemous 1 & 2, and the Metroidvania Humble Bundle: Axiom Verge 1 & 2, 9 Years of Shadows, Cookie Cutter, Death's Gambit, The Knight Witch... building a backlog. 😂

  • The fuk? Please help me complete this insane captcha
  • I had to put my wife's LG-made Google Nexus phone in the fridge to wirelessly back it up without it overheating.

    Also got a free 65" Samsung TV because original owner couldn't stand its blue blotches.

    Everyone, race to the bottom!

  • Bootloader equivalent to Rufus
  • I maintain older hardware at work. We have a platform based on a Biostar motherboard with no USB3 ports, and it will not boot from any USB3 drive I've tried. Any USB2 drives work fine. Picky, picky! 🤷

  • Good to the last drop
  • I've heard a bit about the "Cowper's gland"; female version of the prostate?

    Like you say, I'm fine with it, pleasuring her until she loses control is my kink and it's less messy/dangerous than scat. 😂

    Marketing's job is to warp reality. 🤪

  • GRUB on 32-bit UEFI (Nextbook 2-in-1)

    The only distro I can find that successfully configures a functioning bootable GRUB on this (bastard) machine is Nobara, which looks very cool but is way too heavy! Some things are glitchy; attempting tab completion seems to freeze Konsole for ~5 seconds and does not complete the command as expected. We're working with an Intel Atom [email protected] and 2GB RAM here.

    How can a noob figure out what it's doing differently so I can apply that to Linux Mint Debian Edition or Crunchbang Plus Plus?

    The weird thing is that once the system is installed, it does not seem to have what I think are the required packages for GRUB to be set up correctly with this type of UEFI.

    nextbook@nextbook:~$ sudo grub2-install /dev/mmcblk

    grub2-install: error: /usr/lib/grub/i386-efi/ doesn't exist. Please specify --target or --directory.
