When I hold down the shift key during boot I get to the grub menu but once I select advanced the screen is just grey with some text shortcuts along the bottom of the screen. If I tap the down arrow once and hit return i can get to the recovery menu but it doesn't show the options of kernels or anything else before that. It was just by guessing. How do I get it to show?

I was donated an old Samsung laptop which is maxed out with 2.5GB of DDR 2 ram and no dedicated graphics. It would boot up from a Ubuntu Mate 16.04.4 live USB with fully working display but after install would not display the login screen.
If I booted in recovery mode I could add nomodeset to the end of the line about display and it would boot to the login screen as normal. But this would always revert to the blank screen on the next reboot.
Rather than mess around with config files I rebooted the live USB and from the installer I selected nomodeset from the options on the bottom far right menu. Proceeded with the install and this setting seemed to do the trick and I was presented with the normal login screen on reboot.
Hope this might help someone who has had a similar issue.

I see crapple are now promoting misogyny and the subjugation of women with their new emoji.

I have reverted to RR marshmallow and latest magisk 13beta and still cannot get android pay to work. Using magisk hide for android pay, my banking app, Google play services.

When I hear that criminals who have been seriously dangerous to civilians, even resulting in the loss of life, have used secure apps to plan their activities - I genuinely wondered whether the proposed backdoors for law enforcement might actually be a good thing.

After reading this, I don't think so any more. The comments are worth reading too: https://boingboing.net/2017/06/04/theresa-may-king-canute.html?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=gplus

I have an HTC one m8 and a Samsung galaxy S5 klte, NFC does not seem to be working but didn't know which one or of its both. Any suggestions? NFC checker shows this.
