Got a free Nexus 6P from a friend who upgraded

Crashes every other day
Bluetooth cuts out if you fart in its direction
Gboard shits itself 3 times daily
I'm 6'3" with equally proportionate hands and it's nearly impossible to use this fucking tablet with 1 hand

I read through some old forum posts that said cyanogenmod can fix the bluetooth issues but it's dead now.
What should I use?

Niggets please help,reposting from last thread.


Well I'm back, I got xorg to work only under root, reinstalling does nothing. This is in arch BTW.

Instead of launching it would show this.

What file manager do you use. I'm using nemo but it's shit so looking for a change.

Ads have become beyond horrible. They're unsolicited, annoying, are used to spy on you, and may even contain malicious payloads.

How do you guy block ads? I'm using adblockers within my browsers, and my router to block ads [1] for devices which I can't run an ad blocker on, such as my phone.

I use AdAway on my phone, as well as Firefox Mobile with uBlock Origin. I don't see ads on my phone. On my laptop, I'm just using uBlock Origin, since I don't have applications that could have ads embedded in them.

You must castrate yourself and consume your own penis if you:
>don't use LuaLaTeX whenever possible
>use only a single space after a period/full-stop
>use any of Times, Arial, Calibri, or Minion
>manually push enter/return multiple times to fake spacing between paragraphs
>manually push tabs or spaces to indent first line
>use any of single-spacing, one-half-spacing, or double-spacing instead of exact 120-140% of point size as line spacing

Alright, pic related is a first gen iPad Air, it's almost 4 years old, will receive iOS 11, and can multitask even though it has only 1GB of RAM.

This thing still gets a solid 10 hour battery life, doesn't lag at all (A7 chip) and has a high resolution 4:3 panel that looks fucking great.

ITT: Try finding a 3-4 year old Android Tablet that is runnin Android 7, can multitask and doesn't lag.

Hard mode: find a android tablet that can multitask while having only 1GB of RAM

pro tip: you can't

I'm upgrading my integrated graphics to a 2008-era card. I'm trying to decide between an NVIDIA card and an ATI. I'm leaning towards ATI, but one of my use cases is using the TV-out on the card. I have read that NVIDIA's drivers are superior when it comes to custom resolutions. Is this true?

Also, any card recommendations? Looking for low power consumption. Performance isn't that important because I have a Core i3-530 so anything should be better (my i3-530 sometimes struggles to play 1080p streaming video)

ATI is long gone. Now it's AMD. It's like how Compaq is now long gone, it's now just HP.
>>
>>61233803
No, I specifically need a video card with S-video out, and that year is about when both companies stopped offering that as an option. And anything from that era is better than the integrated graphics on my i3-530 which I've been fairly satisfied with for 7 years now as I don't play games.

>>61233818
Yeah, I know, but it was still ATI in the 2008-2009 era.

MIDI was introduced as v1.0 in the 80s and has not been changed, modified or updated at all since then, even slightly. That's really cool.
Is MIDI the only truly perfect protocol?
