@DanBrown Yeah. Next step was doing a full backup from TWRP, which failed – that was when the boot-loop came in then. I'm still not sure what part it was: TWRP not finding /data and borking things, or me misinterpreting the progress bar of "formatting cache" to hang while it simply took >5min to complete...
@DanBrown Or maybe both. I just wonder what will happen if I now trigger another full backup via TWRP. Will it break again? As long as TiBu isn't working either, I'm somehow not in the mood to try that again.
how nowdays online app providers come to know that I have tampered with their installed application?
in my country banking system provide their own android application for mobile banking..my friend and I modified their app after installation by patching the odex file and add some patches in the installed directory..basically the patch was to save decryption key in the text file. When we tried to login it says "You are not authorized to login. Service is tampered with which breaks section 2 of our ToS". I wonder how did they come to know.
obviously if I reinstall their app..it will work normal again
@DanBrown yes, and a repo behind that. And you can get "historic versions" and all that. That all makes it sound interesting (thinking about including them with my app lists, as you can e.g. also get apps which are otherwise "locked down" for your country). And thinking whether to mention it as good "playstore alternative" for free apps at least.
@DanBrown That makes a good point indeed.
@DanBrown No offense, but if I say "Dan approved it" people will ask me "Who?" :)
Is it safe to download and install Google Play from apkmirror.com? How can I check this is a safe download?
I had to factory reset my original Samsung Galaxy Tab as it refused to start up. After the reset, I haven't been able to update Google Play. Every time I try, it crashes with '...
Well, google Likes It, avast has heard nothing but good stuff, I've got APK's with matching signatures to Play store versions, and BlueStacks even likes them, And they provide .xapk, which is apparently .apk's with an OBB cache.
@Izzy Its more of a case of Making sure I've some sources and entertaining stuff-Doing a little 'How-to' On adoptable storage or all devices. This'll be fun. Doing Something one for something the week after, no idea on what yet.
