Help my friend Joel out!
Today I put my hand up to help maintain +LineageOS for the Android phone that I use, the Zuk Z1.

The official builds have been disabled because of the lack of security
updates. My initial goal is to get the CVE page green so we can
re-enable official builds:

https://cve.lineageos.org/android_kernel_cyanogen_msm8974

I will be cherry picking security fixes into the kernel tree. You can
see the patches that have already been merged here:

https://github.com/LineageOS/android_kernel_cyanogen_msm8974/commits/cm-14.1

If you want to help with testing, please do a build for your Z1 which
will pick up the latest kernel tree and verify that there is no
regression. Let me know how you go.

If that works for you, I suggest pointing at my test tree with some
more experimental patches for testing.

sweet as.
Ever wanted to download adb or fastboot without having to download the whole of Android Studio?

...but didn't want to download executables from some random warez site?

Good news this week:

https://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools-latest-darwin.zip

https://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools-latest-linux.zip

https://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools-latest-windows.zip

These links will always return the adb/fastboot binaries currently shipping with Android Studio. No need to guess what the current version is, or update your own links: just follow these and get the latest binaries, direct from the source.

This is thanks to +Siva Velusamy and Kevin Quinn, not me.

+Steve Kondik was one of my (indirect) bosses at Cyanogen Inc and we'd worked on stuff in the community together. Please show some respect since I've got nothing but respect for that man. I think others who were at Cyanogen can testify. Not so nice to see some people leaking posts already.

Yet there is still so much misinformation by people who don't know the full story (but it's not my position to correct the record). It's actually kind of sad.

Glad to see the TMZ of Android chomping at the bit to selectively quote from posts in a private forum.

Need to get those clicks, even if it means misinterpreting the goals of the discussion and attempting to capitalize on a guy pouring his soul out.

WTF America?

The next few days are going to be a test for Americans. The whole world is watching :-)
Earlier this week untold millions of Americans have willingly allowed their young children to go knock on strangers' doors, asking for candy that, if consumed in that quantity, will give those kids a lifetime of trouble with their teeth.

Early next week, untold millions of Americans are going to willingly vote to have a petulant con-man get access to nuclear codes, and to empower unabashed bigotry, chauvinism, racism and plain human indecency to take hold of one of the most powerful positions in the modern human history.

There's trying something different, and then there's happily sitting in a tree and directing a ballistic missile to take out the entire forest that tree grows in.

Probably the best Cyanogen device. Really liked it in Lisbon so production ("marmite") units should be the same.
