Non-removable batteries and bootloops

OK, so when I get in a boot loop with a phone I am modding, I pull the battery, reinsert and go into recovery or download mode. With a non-removable battery, the manufacturer would have to put a power off button combo on it. I just spent 15 minutes trying to power off my Galaxy Tab and it kept doing a reset with Vol - and Power... man did I feel stupid when I tried Vol + and Power and it turned off. I can just about imagine someone trying to mod the RAZR MAXX, making the same mistake as I did, and waiting 17 days for the battery to die. :lol:

That's one or the issues that hasn't been addressed well with these now phones with integrated batteries. The OEMs can do a lot with the design and redesigning components for a slick design, but they haven't thought out issues for the end user. I see a lot of hard resets with these phones when a simple battery pull would have done the trick.

It probably works fine for iOS because nobody changes anything on an iPhone "Apple got it perfect when they stole the phone from the heavens" :puke: But Motorola NEEDS the ability to pull the battery, without a doubt. The wife has had her MAXX since Wednesday and it is entirely too buggy for a 3-day old phone that is complete stock with a half dozen programs on it. It's not like the OS is new either. It's gingerbread with the exact same software as the RAZR, they should have worked out the bugs by now. I am VERY unimpressed with Motorola after seeing this pure junk. Then you add that they scare off all the good developers with a locked bootloader. Motorola might know how to make radios, but they have no clue on software. My sister has the RAZR MAXX and complains about the battery life. The main selling point of the phone... probably because the software is awful.

 

Also- I had to do a software reset already on her phone to try to resolve issues with a earpiece that is what I would consider level 1 but is turned up all the way.

I just read that a Volume down, Volume Up, and a Power combo will turn most devices off when in a bootloop. Haven't tried it, so I'm not sure if thats an option

    • I see it as more of an economic calculation.  Basically go after the areas where they have the best odds of retaining or attracting customers versus their MVNO arrangements. The quicker they can switch back and forth between 5g and MVNOs the finer grained this decision zone can be.  Field results will beat theory.  In Sprint days this was up to 15 minutes in theory. In practice AT&T could be quite sticky.  I remember driving by 3 Sprint sites while still stuck on AT&T roaming. Dish will need to do better to thrive. Both their MVNO arrangements reportedly now cost them about $1.50 per GB. With volume that may fall to $1.
    • Man I wish I could get on their beta right now.  Looks like I'll have to wait until Dec or so.  The report is not surprising really.  Largely only have employees roaming around running tests and what not.  I am sure lots of testing is needed to iron out bugs, fix things.  Though a lot of it might be denser network.  Only so much you can do and money is spread out very thin when you have such a large target to hit. 
    • Found some AT&T c band live in Cincinnati today. Not too bad considering I was driving past on the interstate at speed.  
    • Hey Mike, a couple other things you might be able to post for S22Ultra owners, In particular, these deal with the *#0011# menu. The following are true for even the June update:   1. Does not show the second n41 carrier (when it is connected) on LTE+NSA. It shows "NR_NumCC:2" but no additional Carrier. It simply states "CA-Not Config 0 0"This works fine on the S21.  2. There is a line that states "Code Review Required" 3. There is a line that states "Unknown 0"    
    • The see Dish as the Beta network for a while. Basically once they have secured their licenses and have inexpensive phones that utilize all their bands I hope to see them reduce the edge space of their network or improve the transfer performance so customers have more of an invisible handoff experience. This will likely be late 2023.
