You already know where the post will lead, it’ll lead to some side project I ended up doing during the weekend.
But, there’s twist, this wasn’t done on a weekend. I did it on a weekday and that’s the only twist. Let’s get to the post.
It all started with a general day at work, writing features, fighting bugs, with my brain just imagining me to be a super hero.
Once I logged out, I just go sit with my parents and eat dinner or talk about random crap. During this I observed dad constantly patting
the back of his phone like it was a TV Remote and hitting it would magically make it work.
I grabbed his phone and randomly started doing intensive tasks to see that the phone wasn’t just slowing down but literally begging for resources to work properly. Shouldn’t be happening to a decent phone but might just have been a faulty piece and my dad doesn’t really tell me that it’s not working cause then I’d instantly order a new one instead of trying to get it fixed.
Anyway, with the new knowledge that the king’s telecommunications weren’t working, the prince went ahead to look for another phone and I remembered that I could just swap the current ROM with a custom one to see if it’s the hardware or it’s the software optimizations that are causing the issue. I reset the phone, the phone still hanged itself to death and then came back to life after 2-3 mins. Pretty irritating!
