    I have been working with technology of all kinds for more than 30 years. I was a DOS expert and coder back in the day, and have used every version of Windows. I work on Unix boxes for fun. I have made a hobby of learning about all sorts of technology and how to make it mind by connecting it to a computer and taking charge. My latest fascination is getting Android phones to bend to my will. Yes Android, you will do my bidding.

    The only way your gonna "bend android to your will and have it do your bidding" is on a rooted phone or finding vulnerabilities and creating exploits of your own. Generally if an OEM locks it down, it's not happening. (Samsung is a good example of total lock down on non international models)

    I always welcome new root developers, so welcome and good luck. ;)

    I have a post awaiting moderator approval. You are correct - and that is what makes it so fun! Watch for my post about using ADB to solve the irritating pop up Just a few moments while we prepare this application for use

    Nice!
    Indeed, playing with linux and android is a treat. In the meantime while we wait, which popup are you referring to?

    edit:
    Guessing you may be talking about the heads up display since those annoy me sometimes?

    In which case, this should nuke them...
    Code (Bash):
    1. adb shell settings put global heads_up_notifications_enabled 0
    As annoying as they can be, I still keep them enabled.

    “Just a few moments while we prepare this application for use” kept popping up in a window on my phone. Then, a second window would pop up with “error code 1001” and instructions to call a Verizon customer service number. All day long. But the thing is, my phone isn't using a Verizon sim card, but the phone was originally provisioned with Verizon. I figured out that it was likely the culprit was these Verizon system apps that kept loading into memory, but which I could not disable or uninstall. I would use a cleaner program to get rid of them, and they would immediately reload along with the pop-ups. ADB gave me the solution as the phone isn't rooted.

    But I love what you just showed me!
