Firstly, thank you for being such a proactive and dedicated developer. You're so enthusiastic and innovative.

However, Sonar just hasn't been working for me. I tried using the feature on my Nexus 6P (7.0, Stock, Rooted, No customizations or frameworks), and it just isn't working.

You can see that the Monday image highlights the lack of movement and sound, and general sleeping updates before the critical update, but there was no change on the Tuesday after the update. The phone was on my bedside locker, plugged in at all times, facing me, less than 30cm from where I sleep. Airplane Mode was on, but this makes no difference.

Do you have any idea why this may be the case? I can forward some logs, but I wouldn't publish them on this forum without stripping data from it.

On a side note, Sonar seems to give loud 'smacking' noise every few seconds when the volume is up full blast. It keeps you from sleeping! But, this isn't as relevant as the current Sonar issue I'm having. Do we have to keep the media volume (most likely the Sonar output) on full, or can it be one or two 'pips' down? At most, I've turned it down one 'pip', but this still shouldn't be the issue.

I look forward to hearing from you. 

PS. I have all permissions for SaA allowed, so sensors, speaker, microphone and the like are good to go.

So, FRP has locked me out.

As I type this, I'm using a slow Huawei Y6. It's an awful handset. It's not like my Nexus 6P.

On Sunday evening, I reset my phone via TWRP, rather than the system settings menu. On other versions of Android and other devices, this would just wipe my data. However, as I'm on Marshmallow, it considers the phone as lost. You are locked out for 72 hours, even if you have he right password.

It's frustrating that I've had to resort to a budget device to get me by, but there is simply not a way around beating FRP. That said, fair play to Google for making such a powerful security feature.

My service will resume from my 6P later this evening, and hopefully the message goes away and allows me to login, but until then I shall be using the cheap handset to get me by. But, genuinely, good on Google for making such a simple and effective security method. If I was a robber, I'd have given up on this phone.

On the other hand, be careful wiping your device. Remember to remove your account first!

For years I've been searching high and low for this song. Tonight, by sheer fluke, I came across it as some wonderful person uploaded it to YouTube. I can't explain how great it is to hear a song that you couldn't find for such a long time. Especially since I never knew the name.

I first heard it on Phantom FM when they were doing their test broadcasts on 97.3 in Dublin. It was something so different to anything I had heard, and it is a song I always associate with the station even after it has, unfortunately, come to be no more.

I'm thrilled to have heard this again. This uploader has brought back some real memories! Thank you!
