What is it exactly that brings you back to 4chan?

For me its the fact circlejerking and self-promotion pretty much doesn't exist here, and if it does, its easy to ignore.

Get something better. It was amazing when it came out, but now it hardly competes. The screen, battery life, and camera are all absolutely terrible and the build quality is pretty shit is you plan on keeping it for a while. I know because I had one for two years. It's great for development and the ROM/Kernel scene is unbeatable, though.

Androids lowering the bar yet again...

"Android Nougat Crash Rate is Higher Than iOS 10’s"

"To put things into perspective, Android 7.0 Nougat has an overall app crash rate of 6.4% compared to iOS 10’s 4.1%."

"But things don’t end there, Android Nougat has a failure rate of 2.5 times more compared to iOS 10 when it comes to fetching data from the cloud."

null modem or serial. Serial will let you send FTP/SSH data at 9600 bit per second.

It's been a while since I've done anything, but I know's possible. TFTP, who knows.
>>
>>56832950
>>56832822
oh yea, should be noted that serial is pretty slow, and it only really going to good for sending small files, playing multiplayer games, using IRC, etc

if you want to move large amounts of data, it'd be quicker just to take the hdd out and attach it via a usb ide adapter

There's other things going on that basically make my phone a brick right now, that can't be fixed unless i fix this rom, so I would have probably had a $700 piece of hardware that I could basically just use to make calls if it weren't for you

Hey /g/, need some support from people who are familiar with builds. I've had my pc for a couple years now and have had to have it shipped back and forth from uni multiple times. UPS fucked something up as always, and I noticed my hard drive was no longer secured in the case, and sliding around. The sata data cable was also no longer attached to the hard drive. I found the loose cable, and noticed the connector was bent to where the rectangular shape that allows it to fit in the slot had one side that was no longer attached to the rest. I tried reinserting it, and while it fit it was very loose and would not lock into place. I then tried reversing the cable, plugging the bent end into my mobo. It locked into place just fine. The end that is in perfect condition that was previously plugged into mobo would also not lock into place in the hard drive, though it was much snugger than the bent end. I'm thinking that maybe the bent end is new because of shipping, but it has always been lose and maybe I just didn't realize it while doing my build. It's a WD Black 2tb, is it possible that the hdd doesn't support locking sata cables? Is it safe to use as is now, even if not locked into place?
>>
bump, also the reason the whole hard drive came lose is because it wasn't screwed in. And now the screws are nowhere to be found. How the fuck did that happen? any alternatives to screws for keeping a hard drive in place?
>>
>>56832828
The alternative is screws. 4mm. Are you saying the HDD is damaged or the SATA cable? If it's the cable, just get another one. Assuming you leave your computer stationary, it shouldn't matter if the SATA cable doesn't lock in place. As long as the copper wires are making contact, it will work.
>>
Your first mistake was shipping it

I work at ups and your box was probably thrown muptiple times. We dont care .

What probably happened was that during one of the attempts to throw your box the top of a wall of boxes inside a trailer the hdd came undone from the chassis and put unneeded pressure on the connectors.

You probably got a fucked up motherboard headers and possible hard drive ones too.

Get a new hdd and transfer files but be careful the connector is not completely secured
>>
>>56832853
>4mm
6mm. Always get that confused.
>>
>>56832853
yeah, the sata cable got damaged on the end that connects to the hdd. I just put the damaged end in the mobo instead, and used one of my case screws as a temporary fix for keeping the hard drive in place. I've been doing a bit of searching and it seems that the wd blacks sometimes don't support locking sata cables. At least I have the non-damaged end in there now so it's less likely to come lose.
