After resetting my sisters laptop factory image of windows 8 I have had the pleasure of looking at a screen cycling through different coloured backgrounds with "Almost ready" and "do not turn off your computer" for 15 minutes.
That was after eight hours of installing updates and reboots.
It is now sitting with win 8.1 and no it is not ready for windows 10 yet as 8.1 now requires 32 updates combined to nearly 400MB.
Why these cunts don't offer a direct update to windows 10 from the earlier crap is beyond me. I estimate I could have at a minimum a dozen different computers installed and fully updated with Linux in this time.

So having just updated my test deployment of Windows 10 I decided to connect my Galaxy S2 Android phone. Using windows explorer I started browsing the contents of my SD Card and it showed the files OK. I had a backup of my contacts in a .VCF file and windows offered to open it with Contacts. Great I thought. I can import my contacts I thought. Big mistake!
One contact detail opened with an option to save it or close and I selected close. It closed and immediately the next contact opened and I selected close and the next one opened and I selected close then the next etcetera etcetera...
The only way to stop this behavior was to shut down the computer. So be aware of opening a VCF contacts file with Windows 10

Task manager worked but it is odd that contacts will only let individual entries from a VCF. Nobody got time for that shit.

Finally got it working after formatting system data & cache. Wiping data factory reset wasn't enough. Think it may have been something to do with my non standard partition sizes.

Tory bullshitter deflecting blame for Tory policy again.
Private agency staff costs where the direct result of Tory cuts to nursing staff and funding. It was his governments failures which once again led to these problems and now they want to blame the agencies which were the result of stealth privatisation going on in the NHS.

The Tories are the ones ripping off the people of Britain!

Root/ROMs  - 
 
Hi Nexi! I flashed and rooted the 5.1 factory image using wugfresh toolkit but now I have received the 5.1.1 ota incremental update. It is less than 10 MB in size but TWRP gives error if I let the system try and install it.

Is there a workaround without having to unroot to install this update?

The file is named update.zip
Here is the part of the log file

I:Zip does not contain SELinux file_contexts file in its root.
I:Legacy property environment initialized.
script aborted: Package expects build fingerprint of google/nakasi/grouper:5.1/LMY47D/1743759:user/release-keys or google/nakasi/grouper:5.1.1/LMY47V/1836172:user/release-keys; this device has Android/omni_grouper/grouper:5.0.2/LRX22G/dees_troy02171933:eng/test-keys.

Should better do a backup of your device and then flash it stock from scratch. You can always use titanium backup for apps, and app data.

The book is available from Amazon, Chapters and elsewhere.  Importantly proceeds from it go to Mr Badawi's family.  Wouldn't it be wonderful if it could be arranged to air drop a few hundred thousand across Saudi Arabia.
Raif Badawi's Book - '1000 Lashes, Because I say What I Think' is now available in English. The foreword has been written by Dr. Lawrence Krauss, Edit...
