1. Are you ready for the Galaxy S20? Here is everything we know so far!

So you think you know your ROM?

    I've been using GV as my main ROM all year, and one of the features I use most is the notification power widget. So you'd think that by now I'd know what it does, right? But today I discovered that if I long press the buttons they take me to the corresponding settings menus!

    That's 4-5 months it's taken me to find this - longer if the same feature was in DeFroST :eek:

    So while I'm tendering my resignation as a ROM tester, I just wondered if other people had similar experiences of stumbling across useful features only after using a ROM for a long time?

    Redux doesn't do this.
    I think Redux is fairly bare-bones so probably not many undocumented/ hidden features.

    Yes, I have a confession to make as well. SUrooT has been helping me sort out one or two issues on my phone and during one issue he said I needed to reboot into recovery whilst I was in recovery. I had to ask how to do that and he pointed out in recovery there is the option Reboot to Recovery [under Advanced on first page]. I seem to spend a lot of time in Recovery but didn't notice that.

    Gotta confess I couldn't tell you from memory what all of the advanced options are - I think 9 times out of 10 I go in there it's to wipe dalvik.

    Damn! Just tried the PCW mod I have running and there's no long press options. Must be GV/Defrost specific

    Probably a cyanogen feature.

    Hadron - yes that is all I normally do but reboot recovery is top of the list and Wipe Dalvik cache is 2nd on the list!!

    It's still in miui. Didn't know it was in GV tho, thought it was miui-specific for a bit... ah well

    Any good feature is likely to be copied :)
