RE: Should I seperate my API tests from E2E tests
I want to test the correct data is represented on UI
The target system is the UI, so, you have to explore two aspects:
1 - Does my UI integrate correctly with the service(s)? 2 - Given that (1) holds, is the UI displaying the data correctly?
(1) can be tackled with https://pactflow.io/blog/what-is-contract-testing/ . In (2), you should have control over the inputs of your system (the UI), thus you can explore the data provided by the service(s) - this control comes from using test doubles, like mocks. Their acceptance tests and API documentation (e.g. OpenAPI) can be good source of ideas for what the services can provide.
Android dialer does not show call history
I am using a One Plus 9R and somehow I cannot see the call history for callers.
In all my past Android phones I used to be able to get a list of past call times and durations etc by clicking on a particular caller name.
Any idea what could be wrong? I seem to be having the "Phone by Google" app installed and presumably that's my dialer.
I tried clearing the cache for that app. Anything else I should be trying?
RE: Remote access to Android local network
You can use Servers Ultimate (com.icecoldapps.serversultimate) from Ice Cold Apps to ran VPN Server on your Android device. But it has limitations:
- VNC Server: doesn’t work on most devices.
- ARM based: Caddy, VPN, Port forward, MySQL monitor, Nginx, Traceroute
- Root needed: Port forwarder, VNC, VPN, SMB Native
- Permission SMS: start/stop rules
- Permission coarse location: wifi selector tool

RE: Phone's download speed doesn't go over 10 Mbps(1.2 MBps)
The issue got fixed, the issue was with the ROM. I had flashed a stock ROM from ASUS' website a month or so ago and due to that even factory resetting didn't help. I flashed a new Pixel Experience ROM on it by unlocking the bootloader and it fixed the issue. I'm now getting full speeds, 50 Mbps+
RE: Native Linux on Android's SOCs
The main reason:
There is no revenue-generating stream for Linux on smartphones in comparison to Android.
Technical reasons, which can't be solved without heavy investments
Just porting Linux to SoC is not enough. Linux is only a kernel.
You will need to develop a distro suitable for a smartphone.
Android = 1. AOSP + 2. patches and blobs from SoC vendor + 3. user apps`
Patches and blobs from SoC vendor
#2 in the equation has restricted access. SoC vendors don't share internal details even with OEMs, only providing a minimum description for available APIs. Typical Android-capable SoC has a lot of proprietary peripheral modules (such as mentioned GPU or Audio, Image processing, radio modules). Some of them require OS drivers, others even specific complex FW with a separate OS. Even for some desktop peripherals, this factor blocks Linux support.
There were attempts to develop an open-source smartphone. As we can see, they didn't get widespread till the moment, and some of the projects were discontinued. The main reason is the same: the model didn't prove its sustainability.
What is the location of recorded call files from Call Recorder?
I have https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.appstar.callrecorderpro&hl=en&gl=US installed and it is recording phone calls, which I can see in the application. I would like to see these files in filesystem too. Where are they?
I see location
Internal storage/CallRecordings, but it contains only few very old recordings, no any new ones.
Device doesn't show up in fastboot [OnePlus Nord]
- the latest platform tools from google
- the universal adb driver
- the OnePlus USB driver
USB debugging & OEM unlock are on.
With the phone turned on everything runs fine. I can copy files onto the device and it shows up in adb and the device manager just fine.
But when I go into the bootloader, fastboot does not list or recognize the device and I noticed in the Device-Manager the phone shows up like https://i.imgur.com/Y4s4EEv.png . Idk if this is normal or not, but I'm out of ideas.
Any help would be much appreciated.
