It’s time for a new gaming console generation, so you know what that means… time to hopelessly try to get a new console! Like most new generational launches, the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S is difficult to find, and many are left waiting for seconds-long Xbox Series X and S restocks. It’s a frustrating situation for sure, and while we can’t offer you a surefire way to get an Xbox Series X or Series S, we can help by gathering everything you need to know in one place. Check out the below and happy hunting!

By the way, we also have a restock guide for the PlayStation 5!

When and where will the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S be restocked?

While we believe the information below is accurate, it’s important to note that sometimes restocks don’t happen as planned. Restocks may go up late, websites may break, or retailers may just change their minds. This information is to help you plan as much as possible for possible restocks.

Stock for the new Xbox series of systems seems to be doing a bit better than the PlayStation 5, but it’s still difficult to grab one. A Microsoft spokesperson even told CNET that stock will be limited until April 2021. However, with Black Friday coming up soon, some retailers are stating they’ll have restocks, so don’t give up hope yet!

Walmart promises a restock on Wednesday, November 25 at 9 PM EST. If the latest restock from them is any indicator, it’ll run out really, really quick. Microsoft generally also sells their consoles directly, but they appear to be out of stock now, with only a “find a retailer” option available. Best Buy stated in their ad that a limited quality of Xbox Series X and Series S consoles will be available on Black Friday, November 27, but hasn’t given a time yet.

Finally, Gamestop is saying they’ll have some of the consoles on Black Friday as well… but they’ll only be in-store. Gamestop is saying that there will be at least two of each console at every location, so it seems like a slim chance of getting a console especially with the risks of being around strangers in 2020, but whether you want to try it is up to you!

As for Amazon? In the US, Amazon likes to drop stock randomly and without warning. Appreciate it, Amazon.

General advice for restocks

Trying to get your hands on something with limited stock is really, really stressful. Make sure to give yourself the best chance you can by following the advice below!

  • Make sure you have an account at the store, and all personal information is updated. Restocks of popular items like the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S put huge strains on websites. On top of that, when it comes to items like these, retailers will only allow you to hold it in your cart for a few minutes. Don’t waste your chance trying to update your address or payment information!
  • Start refreshing the page early. Often, retailers won’t put stock up at EXACTLY the moment they say. It may be a few minutes early or late. Get to the store page of the item you want before the restock time. You might get lucky!
  • Use Ctrl+F5, not just F5. This gives you a hard refresh, that doesn’t pull store information from the cache. So, you won’t get outdated information and will be able to see the “Buy” button as soon as possible!
  • It’s usually better to be on the computer, rather than your phone. While that is not always the case, mobile websites aren’t always optimized for fast refreshing. Or optimized for mobile viewing at all, sometimes. However, sometimes you can have better luck on a mobile app than a browser site. It’s not very often, though, so it’s best to start trying with your computer browser, first.

The PlayStation 5 has, in short, been a nightmare to actually get your hands on, so far. With the limited pre-order stock, site outages, and random seconds-long PlayStation 5 restocks, consumers are being left frustrated and without a (massive) new console to adorn their entertainment center. It’s a frustrating situation for sure, and while we can’t offer you a surefire way to get a PlayStation 5, we can help by gathering everything you need to know in one place. Check out below and happy hunting!

By the way, we also have a restock guide for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S!

While we believe the information below is accurate, it’s important to note that sometimes restocks don’t happen as planned. Restocks may go up late, websites may break, or retailers may just change their minds. This information is to help you plan as much as possible for possible restocks.

Things might look a bit rough, but there is hope for some PlayStation 5 restocks! Rumors abound that many retailers will restock at or around Black Friday, though not all of them are confirmed yet. It makes sense, though — it is the biggest shopping day of the year, and retailers need some good doorbuster deals. What’s a better deal than just… having a hot new console in stock? Playstation has also confirmed via Twitter that more stock will be available at the end of the year:

Gamestop has confirmed that it will have Black Friday stock, but this stock will only be available in stores on Black Friday itself. Walmart will also have online-only PlayStation 5 restocks on Wednesday, November 25, at 9 PM Eastern.

Target is also stating that they’ll get a PlayStation 5 restock on November 26, so sometime on Thanksgiving. As such, it’ll probably be online-only. Finally, Best Buy has stated more PlayStation 5 stock will go live on Black Friday (November 27), but hasn’t stated what time.

PlayStation Direct is doing something a little different with their PlayStation 5 restocks. They allow you to enter a queue daily, giving you a chance to order the PlayStation 5 or PlayStation 5 Digital Edition. So far, this seems to be a more effective method of trying for the PlayStation 5, but being in the queue doesn’t guarantee a console.

As for Amazon? In the US, Amazon likes to drop stock randomly and without warning. Thanks, I guess, Amazon? If it gives you some comfort, though, sources have told T3 that Amazon will restock the PlayStation 5 sometime this week. Nothing more definitive than that, though, so make sure to sign up for in-stock alerts so you can try your luck.

Unlocking a smartphone has become like second nature to most smartphone owners, and with biometrics, all you need to do is put your finger on a sensor or look at your screen. With the upcoming Galaxy S21, Samsung is apparently adding another biometric option, Bixby Voice, to the list.

According to SamMobile, Bixby Voice will be used as a new biometric method when unlocking the Galaxy S21. The feature will reportedly be part of One UI 3.1 based on Android 11, which is expected to launch with Samsung’s new device. SamMobile claims the updated software will be exclusive to the Galaxy S21 before rolling out to more Galaxy devices. That’s unsurprising considering Samsung typically debuts new versions of its Android-based One UI software on its latest flagship smartphones — One UI 2.1 debuted on the Galaxy S20, while One UI 2.5 debuted on the Galaxy Note 20, for instance.

SamMobile points out that Bixby did once offer the ability to unlock your device with voice wake-up features, but those features are no longer found in Bixby. “But we’re told One UI 3.1 will let you select Bixby voice unlock from the phone’s lock screen security settings, though the exact details of how it will work are unclear at this time,” SamMobile said.

The question remains whether Bixby Voice can be a viable biometric alternative to a fingerprint sensor or even face unlock. Voice assistants have become adept at recognizing a user’s voice, but there’s no telling if Bixby Voice can distinguish between a recording and real life. Biometrics in today’s market are more than capable, and I’m not sure people are necessarily yearning for yet another option. But there are those rare instances when fingerprints and face unlock aren’t convenient, leaving a voice unlock feature to fill the gap. While biometric voice authentication — like software-based facial recognition services — may be offered for unlocking the phone or even locking apps, Samsung will likely categorize it as a “weak” authenticator type so it can’t be used for confirming payments.

It shouldn’t be too much longer before we find out what Samsung has planned. The company is rumored to be prepping for an Unpacked event in early January, where we’re expecting to learn more about the Galaxy S21 (and any new features in One UI 3.1). Unfortunately, the same event may not include a sequel to the Galaxy Z Flip, so all attention will be on the Galaxy S21.

When Google introduced Chrome 87, one of the exciting new features was called Chrome Actions.

The feature makes it super easy to perform certain actions right from the browser’s address bar, rather than forcing users to clumsily dig through the browser’s settings menu. To help you utilize Chrome Actions, we’ve made a simple guide that highlights some of the actions you can take.

Chrome Actions

Chrome Actions recognizes hundreds of different phrases — seriously, the list is huge — and you’ll know when a phrase is recognized once you see a button appear below the search bar (or “omnibox,” as Google sometimes refers to it).

Below are just a few of the phrases you can type into the address bar.

  • Clear Browsing Data – type ‘delete history’, ‘clear cache ‘ or ‘wipe cookies’
  • Manage Payment Methods – type ‘edit credit card’ or ‘update card info’
  • Open Incognito Window – type ‘launch incognito mode‘ or ‘incognito’
  • Manage Passwords – type ‘edit passwords’ or ‘update credentials’
  • Update Chrome – type ‘update browser’ or ‘update google chrome’
  • Translate Page – type ‘ translate this’ or ‘ translate this page’

Google said that Chrome Actions is slowly rolling out, so not everyone will see it right away. Once it’s available to you in Chrome 87, simply type in one of the phrases above into the address bar, and Chrome will do the rest. As far as we can tell, the feature is turned on by default.

According to Google, Chrome Actions is initially available on desktop and focuses primarily on privacy and security. Google didn’t say how it plans to expand the feature in the future, but Chrome Actions already makes accessing certain settings so much easier.

The arrival of Chrome Actions comes as part of a larger update that also includes the ability to search tabs, along with what Google said are the biggest performance gains in years. Chrome 87 with Chrome Actions is rolling out to users now.

Migrating from one Android phone to another, especially when switching to a new brand, is…not very easy, to put it bluntly. The situation has improved in recent years, with more and more apps and settings supporting seamless migration, but the whole process still needs a fair few steps and quite some time out of your day, especially since most of your older apps get installed one-by-one and then require user intervention for a manual sign-in. While Google is working on making it easier to sign into apps on new devices, they’re also working behind-the-scenes to speed up the bulk restore process through the new “install hints” feature, which aims to help get your most important apps up and running as quickly as possible on a new device.

As initially spotted by XDA Recognized Developer luca020400, Google engineers have described the “install hints” feature as a way for app stores, like the Google Play Store, to decide which compiler filter to use for dex2oat when bulk installing new applications, such as during a setup or restore process.

Here are the relevant commits:

This CL adds an “install scenario” field to several data structures used by the Package Manager. This value will be used by a following CL to adjust the invocation of dexopt based on the indicated use case.

Dex2oat is a compiler that takes an APK file and generates compilation artifacts that the Android Runtime (ART) loads upon installation, helping speed up app loading times. Dexopt is a program that optimizes dex files upon installation.

Based on these commits, it seems that Install Hints will allow for four different compiler filters to be passed during app installation: DEFAULT, FAST, BULK_CRITICAL, and BULK_NON_CRITICAL. We presume that, during a phone restore process, an app store can send the “BULK_CRITICAL” flag to dex2oat so that certain critical apps can be installed more quickly, at the cost of optimization (which can presumably happen the next time the app is updated).

Based on your history of app installation and usage, it wouldn’t be difficult for a pre-installed app store to determine which apps you use most frequently. And based on what device you have, an app store would have a predetermined set of apps that it knows are critically needed for functionality, like Google Play Services and other OEM software services. Thus, these apps can be prioritized during a bulk installation process, at the cost of the first-run optimization.

How would this change impact you as a user, you might ask? Well, the commits haven’t actually been merged yet, so our analysis is based on the information we can see in the commits at the moment (and our analysis could change when the commits are finally merged). As a user installing a bevy of apps on a new phone, the app store will be able to prioritize the apps that it knows that you have used a lot on your last-used device. So if you use WhatsApp Messenger a lot, for example, the app store will pass the flag to the compiler to let it be installed more quickly, so you can get started with signing into the apps that are more useful for you. On the other hand, for apps that you use less often, these can be installed and optimized as normal. We don’t know how much time this will save a user — this very likely depends on how many apps are deemed critical and how many apps are being restored in the first place — but it could shave off minutes on older or slower phones downloading hundreds of apps.

As mentioned, the commits have not been merged yet, so we do not know when these changes will make their way to Android, or if there will be further changes to the code. If these commits are merged within the next few months, then we will see this feature become available for app stores in Android 12.

Google has started the company’s traditional ‘death by a thousand cuts’ for outgoing products with the removal of group video calling from Hangouts. The messenger app, once known as Google Talk and soon to be replaced by Google Chat and Google Meet, has been updated to version 36.0.340725045, bringing in the first loss of functionality ahead of its planned switch-off in 2021.

Hangouts users are now greeted by a message at the top of the contact list stating “Video calls in Hangouts now use Google Meet. this gives you live captions, screen sharing and more.” followed by a link to a Google support page. If you try and start a video call in one of your groups, you’ll instead have a Google Meet URL pasted into the chat for everyone to join in the browser. Not the most elegant solution, perhaps, but the game here is to try and nudge our behaviours away from using Hangouts, at least for the happy few that still do. Bizarrely, you can still make one-to-one video calls through Google Hangouts, just as before, and audio calls appear completely unaffected thus far.

According to Android Police, you can still rollback to an earlier version of Hangouts and use group video calling, but we’re not entirely sure why you’d want to unless you’re speaking to a lot of people at once. The free tier of Google Chat is limited to 10 participants, whereas in Google Hangouts, it’s 25. Whatever the case, it’s probably just easier to switch to something else, as the Google MO suggests we’ll see more features being deprecated in the coming months.

Ultimately, it seems that Google is committed to bringing down its gaggle of communication apps down to just Chat, Meet, and Messages, which is frankly a relief, given that in the past few years we’ve had Chat, Meet, Messages, Hangouts, Allo, Duo, G+, Currents, and probably a few more we’ve managed to block out.

When OxygenOS 11 was released, one of the headlining features was Always On Display. Unfortunately, for OnePlus 8T owners on T-Mobile, that feature was conspicuously missing, but it has finally been added in a new update.

T-Mobile this week released OxygenOS 11.0.4.06 for the OnePlus 8T, which finally includes the Always On Display feature. It’s unclear why the feature wasn’t there to begin with or why it took so long to introduce. But it’s finally here, just in time for the holidays. The same update also includes the October 2020 security patch.

The Always On Display feature has been one of the most requested features from OnePlus users. And after years of asking, the company finally delivered after weighing how it would affect battery life. In our hands-on from earlier this year, we talked about OnePlus’s implementation of Always On Display and how it compares to other options.

Since introducing Always On Display in OxygenOS 11, OnePlus has iterated on the feature by introducing a Canvas AOD option. It essentially draws a wireframe picture based on a Lock Screen photo on your phone. It suits the feature well and allows users to personalize their experience in a fun and unique way.

OnePlus has since launched a second campaign to crowd-source more ideas, which ended at the beginning of November. On its IDEAS website, some of the most popular new suggestions include a Dark Mode that is black instead of grey, lock screen customization, and other features.

OnePlus 8T Forums

Some of these suggestions have already been given the seal of approval by OnePlus, so fans can likely expect them in the coming months barring any major issues.

T-Mobile subscribers who own a OnePlus 8T can check their system updater to download the latest OxygenOS 11.0.4.06 now. We don’t have any download links to share since T-Mobile—not OnePlus—is pushing this update.

Samsung’s next Galaxy Z Flip foldable could have a display with a 120Hz refresh rate, bringing it into line with the company’s other flagship smartphones. This leak comes on the heels of news from earlier this week that the ‘Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 2’ has been postponed, in part, at least, to distance itself from the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S21 launch, giving both product lines more exposure.

According to a post on Weibo from renowned Samsung leaker Ice Universe, the wait could well be worth it, with a 120Hz display seemingly in the pipeline. There had been some disappointment when the original Samsung Galaxy Z Flip launched alongside the Samsung Galaxy S20 that the 120Hz display in the main flagship line hadn’t been included on the clamshell-foldable which has a display clocking in at a more standard 60Hz.

Given the mixed reviews it got, despite its brand new form factor, it could well be that Samsung has decided to take its time and get the second version right. Actually, did we say the second version? According to the same leaker, it will actually be called the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 — with the 5G variant of the original being counted as the 2nd. It’s not dissimilar to Microsoft’s decision to skip Windows 9, to create some distance between people’s associations of a not-so-successful predecessor.

There’s not a lot else we know for sure, but we can probably deduce that the Flip3 will have 5G by default, and that probably means that it won’t be dramatically cheaper than the original, another reason not to let it share a keynote with the Galaxy S21 range. The Galaxy S21 Ultra is likely to be on par price-wise, and it may muddy the waters as to which is the flagship. Whereas the first Galaxy Z Flip was essentially a mass-produced proof of concept, sometimes at the expense of its specifications, the second (oh, alright, third) seems to be heading into the luxury tier, with its own identity and update cycle.

When you drop a few hundred dollars on a new piece of tech, you’re probably going to want to protect your purchase from scratches and dings. The Nintendo Switch is no exception! Since Nintendo has abandoned the clamshell design of the Nintendo DS line, Switches are prone to their screens getting scratched up if you carry them with you on the go. Actually, they can even be scratched when they are simply sitting in the dock!

Screen protectors are an easy, and often cheap, way to protect the Switch’s screen. But, with a deluge of options available on Amazon, it quickly becomes difficult to tell the difference between quality protectors and ones that won’t fit the screen or peel after a few months. We have you, and your screen, covered, though! Check out our picks for the best Nintendo Switch screen protectors below!

Before we get started, there is something important to note: You need to buy the right screen protectors based on if you have the Nintendo Switch, or the Nintendo Switch Lite! The two Switch models have different screen sizes, so protectors will not be compatible with one another.

Nintendo Switch Screen Protectors

If you have an original Nintendo Switch, you know that the screen can easily get scratched or scuffed moving it in and out of the dock. Help prevent damage to your console with these Nintendo Switch screen protectors:

Happy Wednesday! It’s time, once again, for OnePlus Day, and it’s another flash sale oriented event. If you thought the Black Friday discounts on the OnePlus 8 Pro, 8T, and 7T Pro were a little weak, now is your chance to grab additional savings on them! You just need to be in the right place at the right time.

The OnePlus Day flash deals this week only go for an hour apiece, so you need to be sure to grab these coupons as soon as they go live! Even though the OnePlus Day website doesn’t state there are limited qualities, they are limited, so don’t leave it up to chance.

The times for the flash sales this week are as follows:

  • OnePlus 8 Pro for $699 (Round 1) : 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EST
  • OnePlus 7T Pro for $599: 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST
  • OnePlus 8 Pro for $699 (Round 2): 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST
  • OnePlus 8T for $649 (Round 1): 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST
  • OnePlus 8 Pro for $699 (Round 3): 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM EST
  • OnePlus 8T for $649 (Round 2): 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM EST
  • OnePlus 8 Pro for $699 (Round 4): 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM EST

Yeah, it’s a lot of flash sales! You’ll get only one chance at the OnePlus 7T Pro and two chances at the OnePlus 8T, so definitely set some reminders if these are your phones of choice.

Anyone that participated in last week’s OnePlus Week knows that things didn’t… quite go as well as hoped. These coupons will probably not be so hotly contested, but make sure you’re prepared to grab yours by following the below:

  1. Sign up for your OnePlus account, and make sure all of you’re information is right.
  2. Head over to the OnePlus Day page. Don’t head directly to your item’s store page! The coupon is only on the OnePlus Day page.
  3. While you’re waiting, claim the all-day free shipping coupon at the bottom of the page.
  4. Claim your coupon, then head over to your chosen phone’s store page (OnePlus 8 Pro, OnePlus 7T Pro, OnePlus 8T) and check out!

Good luck!

    OnePlus Day Flash Sales
    This week's OnePlus Day has even deeper discounts on Black Friday sale phones. These discounts are only available via flash sales, though, so make sure you're prepared to grab a coupon for the phone you want by reading the above! Also, be sure to clip the free shipping coupon that's available all day.

If you missed out, you only missed out on an extra $100 off the phones. The OnePlus 8 Pro and 8T are still available at their Black Friday prices!

    OnePlus 8 Pro
    Missed out on the flash sales? The OnePlus 8 Pro is still only $799! You'll also get a free pair of OnePlus Buds with your order.
    OnePlus 8T
    Missed out on the flash sales? The OnePlus 8T is still only $749! You'll also get a free pair of OnePlus Buds with your order.

As you may be well aware by now, the stable version of Android 11 has now been released to the masses. Google’s Pixel series of phones and a handful of Xiaomi devices have joined the update train so far, while official beta builds are available for the OnePlus 8 lineup, the Samsung Galaxy S20 series, and several other smartphones from different OEMs. Source code for the newest iteration of Android is up and available at AOSP as well, which is undoubtedly a vital ingredient for compiling Android 11-based custom ROMs. Matter of fact, the Redmi K20 Pro/Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro has already received a fairly usable vanilla AOSP 11 ROM.

The Redmi Note 8 and the Note 8T duo got a unified Android 11-based AOSP ROM. If you are ready to ignore the glitches in Wi-Fi Display and ADB over USB, the ROM appears to be in good shape for something that is being based on a new OS version that was launched just last week.

17.21. Redmi Note 8 Pro

LineageOS 18.0 based on Android 11 for the Xiaomi Mi 5

17.26. Xiaomi Mi 5s

Android 11 on the Mi 5s is available in the form of LineageOS 18.0. There are a few bugs that you would need to deal with, though. For instance, the fingerprint sensor is buggy, and SELinux is set as permissive.

17.29. Xiaomi Mi 8

The Xiaomi Mi 8 received the taste of Android 11 courtesy of PixelROM. The big news here is that SELinux in this ROM is set as enforcing. However, the current build deliberately spoofs the device fingerprint in order to pass SafetyNet.

Android 11 Google Apps

Apart from the ROMs mentioned above, we are going to be seeing a lot of custom builds of Android 11 released in the coming weeks. However, not all custom ROMs ship with pre-installed Google apps. In case you’re looking for a suitable GApps distribution, then you’ll be happy to know that several GApps distributions have already been updated to support the latest version of Android.

1. NikGapps

XDA Senior Member Nikhil has stepped up and published an updated version of the NikGapps package. The SetupWizard module within this Gapps distribution is known to be problematic, but you can remedy this by skipping the module using nikgapps.config or flashing the variant without SetupWizard.

Download NikGApps

2. BiTGApps

XDA Senior Member TheHitMan has also updated the BiTGApps package. The latest release, tagged as R16, is now compatible with Android 11.

Microsoft is rumoured to be considering adding Android apps to Windows in 2021. Although runtime apps such as Bluestacks can offer Android emulation, the move from Microsoft would see apps available to download and run, alongside UWP and Win32 apps. According to a report from Windows Central, internal talks are ongoing over whether it would be possible to add an Android runtime to Windows 10, probably in time for a major revamp of Microsoft’s operating system, expected in the Fall of 2021.

Microsoft first adopted Android as its preferred mobile operating system when Windows 10 Mobile was all but abandoned in 2017. The company already offers a mobile version of most of its apps for Android, and users of the Windows Your Phone app are able to run multiple apps from compatible smartphones on the desktop, but this service is currently limited to Samsung users.  Adding direct access to Android apps would be a major upgrade to Windows 10, putting it on a direct collision course with Google’s Chromebook range which can run ChromeOS, Android apps, and Linux packages simultaneously. With access to the Chrome browser, and rumours of a GUI for the Linux runtime in the pipeline, the addition of Android apps would make Windows a near-universal operating system.

Meanwhile, the company is said to finally have Windows 10X, a version of the OS that will eventually be aimed at multi-screen devices, ready to RTM before the end of the year, with an expectation that we’ll see products running it in early Spring of 2021. Windows 10X has been branded as Microsoft’s “Chromebook killer” and if Android apps were a part of the offering, that moniker might well have been earned.

Whilst there’s no concrete information on this, we’re already musing on how it could even work. Would it run Google Play Services, and if not, does that mean no Play Store either? One idea is that Windows could include an Android section in the Microsoft Store, but that presents its own problems for existing Android owners who could end up paying for an app at two different stores, and have different save data on different devices.

It’s clear that the idea would need a bit of fleshing out, and indeed, let’s not forget that it could all come to nothing. But if it does, it could represent the biggest shake-up in the desktop/laptop market for some considerable time.

Official LineageOS 17.1 based on Android 10 was released earlier this year for a handful of smartphones, but over the past few months, the build roster has grown to include many more devices. For those of you who still feel left out, there are plenty of unofficial builds floating around on our forums as well. These unofficial builds range from completely broken to surprisingly stable, and they’re undoubtedly a good way to test the custom ROM weeks or months before the build is stable enough to be made official. Now, unofficial LineageOS 18.0 custom ROMs based on Android 11 have appeared on our forums for the OnePlus 8T and the OnePlus 8 Pro.

OnePlus 8T XDA Forums || OnePlus 8 XDA Forums

Although both smartphones have official Android 11 releases available for them, the OxygenOS 11 skin can’t be said to be stock Android-like any more. The OnePlus 8 Pro received its stable Android 11 update back in October, while the OnePlus 8T launched in the same month with Android 11 out of the box. In fact, OnePlus published the updated kernel source code for the 8 series in September, subsequently resulting in official alpha builds of Paranoid Android “Ruby” being made for it. The company also released the kernel source code for the OnePlus 8T, which is how aftermarket developers on our forums are able to cook custom ROMs for this relatively new device. Now, XDA Recognized Developer LuK1337 has independently ported Android 11-based LineageOS 18.0 for both devices.

Download unofficial LineageOS 18.0: OnePlus 8T || OnePlus 8 Pro

Installation of the custom ROM is slightly complicated, as a compatible custom recovery solution for these devices isn’t available at this moment. We advise you to read the forum threads carefully before attempting the flashing process. The developer will also share updates on the aforementioned threads, so subscribe to the post(s) if you’re hoping to see new builds for your model.

Samsung kicked off the One UI 3.0 public beta program for the Galaxy S20 series early last month.

Then, earlier this month, Samsung announced that it would be expanding the One UI 3.0 beta program to more devices, including the Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Z Flip 5G, the Galaxy S10 series, and the Galaxy Note 10 series. As promised, the company has now opened the One UI 3.0 beta program for the Galaxy S10 series in South Korea, India, and the UK.

According to recent posts on Samsung’s Community forums, the first One UI 3.0 beta build has now started rolling out to Exynos variants of the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 5G, Galaxy S10+, and the Galaxy S10e in India and South Korea. The build is based on Android 11, and it comes with the Android security patches for October 2020.

The second ban followed in July, and it included 47 more apps with Chinese connections, like TikTok Lite, Helo Lite, ShareIt Lite, and more. The second wave essentially cracked down on functional clones of the apps that were banned in the first wave. Sadly, MeitY hasn’t shared a complete list of all the apps that were banned in this phase.

Apps banned in Wave 3

MeitY then shared another notice in September this year, banning 118 Chinese apps in the country. These included popular apps like PUBG Mobile, PUBG Mobile Lite, Baidu, ShareSave by Xiaomi, GO SMS Pro, and many more.

Note: All the apps mentioned above have been removed from popular app distribution platforms, like the Google Play Store and Apple App Store, in the country and they’re no longer available for download. However, some of the apps may still be functional if you have them installed on your device.


In all of the notices shared by MeitY over the last few months, the government body cited Section 69A of the Information Technology Act, 2000 to ban the Chinese apps. Section 69A of the IT Act reads as follows:

69A Power to issue directions for blocking for public access of any information through any computer resource. –

    1. Where the Central Government or any of its officers specially authorised by it in this behalf is satisfied that it is necessary or expedient so to do, in the interest of sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of the State, friendly relations with foreign States or public order or for preventing incitement to the commission of any cognizable offence relating to above, it may subject to the provisions of sub-section (2), for reasons to be recorded in writing, by order, direct any agency of the Government or intermediary to block for access by the public or cause to be blocked for access by the public any information generated, transmitted, received, stored or hosted in any computer resource.
    2. The procedure and safeguards subject to which such blocking for access by the public may be carried out, shall be such as may be prescribed.
    3. The intermediary who fails to comply with the direction issued under sub-section (1) shall be punished with an imprisonment for a term which may extend to seven years and also be liable to fine.

We’ll update this list if more apps are banned, or if apps within are announced to be unbanned.

The latest version of Xiaomi’s custom Android skin – MIUI 12 – is finally here. The company has dropped the curtain yesterday, alongside the Mi 10 Youth Edition launch event in China. Compared to MIUI 11, the stable version of which was released less than six months ago, MIUI 12 brings in a slew of improvements, visual overhauls, and many new features. We have already extracted the new wallpapers, and now we are presenting the downloading links of the first set of MIUI 12 beta firmware packages for a bunch of Xiaomi and Redmi devices.

It is worth mentioning that these closed beta builds are meant for the Chinese variants, as Xiaomi suspended the rollout of MIUI global beta since last year. As a consequence, you have to flash these recovery ROMs using TWRP to bypass the MIUI beta account whitelisting. Do not expect Google Play Services or any pre-installed Google apps in them. Language options are likely limited to English and Chinese only, too. Xiaomi did launch MIUI 12 globally, and we are waiting for builds to appear for that too. Meanwhile, you can try out the closed betas from China.

The beta MIUI 12 builds listed below are based on either Android 10 or Android 11, depending on the device. If you are looking for MIUI 12 stable releases, you can find those here.

Download: MIUI 12

You can download the latest beta of MIUI 12 for your device from the links below. You can also visit our linked forums in case you need further assistance. While all of these download links are directly from Xiaomi, users are advised to proceed at their own risk. We warn you once again, this is not intended for the average consumer and is recommended only for users comfortable with flashing ROMs.

Project Mainline is one of the biggest changes to Android in recent years. While you as a consumer may not notice this change, it fundamentally alters how Android operates as an open-source operating system, with more power now resting in the hands of Google than ever before. Whether this increase in control is good or bad is a topic for a different debate. Now, Google plans to include the Android Runtime (ART) as an updatable Mainline module in Android 12.

What is Android Runtime (ART)?

Android Runtime, or ART, is the default runtime on Android that was introduced back in 2013 along with Android 4.4 Kitkat. As Google mentions, ART is the “managed runtime used by applications and some system services on Android“. Here is an XDA TV video from 2014 that explains ART with reference to the changes it brings about from the erstwhile Dalvik VM:

Long story short, ART essentially translates an Android app’s bytecode into native instructions. It uses ahead-of-time compilation to compile apps into native machine code directly upon installation. As you can guess, this is a pretty important function that ideally should perform in the same manner across the entire Android ecosystem.

ART as a Mainline Module

As spotted by XDA Recognized Developer luca020400, a Google engineer has revealed that the company plans to make the Android Runtime (ART) an updatable Mainline module in Android S/Android 12.

By making ART a Mainline module, Google will be able to exercise much more control over it, in line with the overarching theme of mainline modules. As we mention in our primary explainer on Project Mainline:

Project Mainline extends the efforts of Project Treble. While Treble reduced how dependent OEMs were on SoC vendors for every single OS update, Mainline reduces how dependent Google is on OEMs for delivering security updates to key OS components. Project Mainline extends the Treble philosophy to more critical parts of the Android framework, removing OEMs as the dependent middlemen from this equation. The purpose of Project Mainline is for Google to wrest control of framework components and system applications that are critical to security and maintaining development consistency away from OEMs. Project Mainline is rightfully referred to as the biggest change to Android since Project Treble.

ART as a Mainline module would allow Google to update it without needing a system OTA update. If Google makes it mandatory for OEMs to preload a Google-signed ART module (likely delivered in the form of an APEX), then Google will be able to retain control over pushing updates to ART on all Android devices. Google would be able to push updates to ART through the Google Play Store, and OEMs wouldn’t be able to make modifications to ART. This in turn inches towards the behavioural consistency that third-party app developers would expect across the ecosystem.

The TWRP custom recovery is an essential tool for Android enthusiasts who wish to install third-party software on their devices. With the recovery, you can flash new custom ROMs, take full data backups, modify protected files, and do much more. But to do any of these things, you need to have a device that’s officially supported by the TWRP project. Thankfully, the team behind the project keeps adding support for new devices ever so often. Recently, the team officially extended support to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e LTE, Xiaomi Mi 9 SE, Mi 8 Pro, and Mi 8 Explorer Edition.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e LTE

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e LTE is a mid-range tablet from last year, which features a 10.5-inch display and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 670 chip. It was recently upgraded to One UI 2.1 based on Android 10, and while that’s great, what’s even better is that you can now install any custom ROM on the tablet thanks to the TWRP support. If you’re not sure where to begin, we’d recommend checking out the recently released LineageOS 17.1 build for the device.

Xiaomi Mi 9 SE

Xiaomi Mi 9 SE is a Snapdragon 712 powered mid-range device, which recently received a MIUI 12 build based on Android 10. The device features a 5.97-inch Super AMOLED display, up to 6GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of storage, and it even comes with a capable triple-camera setup. While Xiaomi’s latest Android skin does bring a bunch of improvements to the device, if you want to take things to the next level with third-party software, you can now flash the TWRP recovery on the device by following the link below.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro

Xiaomi’s flagship from 2018, the Mi 8 Pro, features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chip, a 6.21-inch Super AMOLED display, up to 8GB of RAM, and a respectable 12MP dual-camera setup. While the device was launched with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, Xiaomi upgraded it to Android 10 with MIUI 11 earlier this year. It also received a MIUI 12 build recently, but we’re not sure if Xiaomi plans to upgrade it to Android 11 anytime soon. So, if you want to experience the latest version of Android on the device, we’d recommend flashing a custom ROM based on Android 11. To do so, you’ll first need to flash TWRP on the device, which you can download from the link below.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition

Finally, support has also been added for the Mi 8 Explorer Edition, a special version of the Mi 8 Pro with a better 3D facial recognition system and a translucent back panel. The device was also launched with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, and it was recently updated to MIUI 12 based on Android 10. You can download TWRP for the device by following the link below.

OnePlus has an interesting tradition of releasing special variants of some of their smartphones weeks or sometimes months after launch. With this year’s OnePlus 8T, the OEM launched the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Edition following the customary period of leaks and teasers. This particular variant is available for purchase only in China and it features a unique camera module that spans almost the entire top third of the device’s back. We did a thorough hands-on of the special Cyberpunk 2077 Edition which gives you a good picture of how it differs from the regular 8T model, but in case you are wondering what that cool boot animation and the new theming assets look like, here’s a quick video showcase.

Interested in these goodies? Thanks to a wonderful port from XDA Recognized Contributor linuxct, you can get the Cyberpunk 2077 Edition’s exclusive live wallpaper on your regular OnePlus 8T or any other Android smartphone. Note that the target device needs to have good OpenGL performance in order for the live wallpaper to look as fluid as it would on a OnePlus 8T.

The boot animation, FOD animation, and the icon pack have also been ported in the form of a Magisk Module, courtesy of XDA Senior Member AndroPlus. Visit the post linked below to download the module.

Here are compressed and resized previews of the 5 wallpapers, but if you’re interested in trying them out we recommend downloading the full resolution (2400×1080) images from the archive.
