Bricked a Nexus 7 Gen II LTE, (help)
I might be shouting into the void here, but...

I tried to put #KDE #Plasma #Mobile on my old #Nexus7 a few days or more ago. It didn't go well and I posted to their GitHub about it.

Two days ago I tried putting #UBports onto it. It appears that the way I was able to run fastboot format cache and fastboot format userdata on a #Windows10 machine but not on a #Ubuntu18 #Workstation seems to have made that device impervious to the UBports super easy installer.



It worked great on my old #Nexus5 so I'm at a loss as to how I can proceed. Maybe the 7 is damaged internally? I tried the #UBportsInstaller with and without the wipe checkbox checked, as well as with and without the paths to the adb & fastboot executables.

#Help me #FOSS #Mobile #Developers you're my only hope.

Sorry, won't be much use to you, (It's been years since I rooted a mobile or tablet) but wish you luck. I'll try to amplify your post. Did you try posting at XDA?
Steve
@Michael Rupp I had good luck with this script in the past. Hope it works for you too - It may help with a bricked device.

PixelFed app on Ubuntu Mobile / UBports?!
Hey @dansup®

Am I late on the news, or is this news to you? I just installed that #Ubuntu mobile #Convergence OS (aka: UBports) on my old Nexus 5 and while browsing through their software finder (near the bottom of "Communication & Social") I see "uPixelFed Webapp" by "Web fed Pixel goodness" listed.

I thought the possible app was a long way off. I don't even have a PixelFed account yet, so theirs that, but...

You have an app, right?

Pixelfed does not have any official apps yet, we're working on supporting existing Mastodon compatible apps.

Stressed women are more likely to give birth to a girl, study finds
If you're looking for a #Upbeat #Happy #News #Story to talk about at the water cooler, this #Interesting #Podcast might just do the trick.

They have #Statistics to show the #Correlation, they have #Hypothesis to connect plausible & likely functional relationships between the cause and the effect. As a parent, I've heard a lot of things over the years claiming to adjust the likelihood of a child's gender through food or other silliness, but this is the first one I heard that made sense. I could be wrong, but it seems that—for example—if prospective #dads want #sons they should go to great lengths to not be an #Asshole and to woo their partner. If #parents want #daughters, they will have to try to walk that dangerous tightrope of #stress that could lead to failed attempts to #conceive.


If you want to get right to the audio highlight,
slide the cue handle to about 21:34.

Librem5 teardown with Purism CEO Todd Weaver!
This #Librem5 is something I'm waiting for, patiently. If you've ever tried to maintain your own device, like swapping out a broken screen or replacing an old battery, you will really enjoy seeing this disassembly and reassembly of a new phone.

Sometimes the server with this video is overloaded so try it later if it doesn't work at first.

Hey, @Lisa Stranger I think you might like this podcaster. Well, I'd toss a coin to guess if you'd like this particular episode. She throws up things she knows to call bullshit on the current case being used for impeachment, and doesn't have a nice thing to say about anybody in politics at the moment.
The creator, Jen Briney, is a really good person and as far as I can tell is unbiased. Typically, the show is mostly her reading congressional bills and then reporting on what they mean to the general population.

Screaming Into The Void: How Outrage Is Hijacking Our Culture, And Our Minds
[He said knowingly with a smug sense of #Outrage and #Righteous #Indignation.] The gist of this episode is that we have #Evolutionary reward systems to be outraged at a person's reprehensible actions, but that sub-system was developed with small groupings of humanoids in face-to-face interactions, not #Electronic #SocialMedia.

There are lots of things to say about this episode of the #HiddenBrain #Podcast, and I'll start with my own personal worry that I'm part of the problem. I feel like I'm posting important content that is worth people's time to think about and I'm convinced that it will lead to a better world, but...

I also have this #Hypothesis that EVERYBODY thinks they are doing the right thing for the right reasons at all times. If I scrutinize the state of affairs at the times in my past when I made regrettable mistakes, I could see how I was mistakenly doing wrong while thinking I was the hero doing the right thing, AND making the world a better or safer place! If I give a #Deplorable person's actions a charitable review, I can see how they are misguided and thought they were doing the right thing and were making the world a better place despite doing the opposite with their actions.

It seems like open-minded #Discourse with people who are #Disagreeable to your position (as opposed to you personally), is a great way to find out when your favorite idea isn't built on solid ground.

If you think you are an #Influencer somewhere on the #SurveillanceCapitalism #SocialMedia or on a #Federated system, I urge you to listen to this short and powerful podcast and reflect on yourself with unbiased scrutiny to see if you are part of the problem or part of the solution.

double binds | narcissistic ‘no-win’ mind games
This is a gem for the @Atheists in the open #forum. It's hard to notice how frequently you are caught in these traps until you hear him map out some examples.

Trump, the Ex-Lobbyist and 'Chemically Castrated' Frogs
This is an amazingly addictive #Podcast to listen to which tracks #Trump's past and current transgressions and documents them as #Journalists. This episode reveals how hard the Trump #WhiteHouse tries to protect their dirty dealings with people in the circle of #Government. This is the classic case of "what if some terrible person gets control of that super-weapon?"

In the episode (and on it's linked page below), they highlight another group of people doing work to document the criminal activity in the #USA's federal government. See the Trump Town to find out who is robbing the #Taxpayers now, or how you can help with the #Investigation...

Damn, Katie Goldin! You #Powned that fargin' #Jordan #Peterson character. #Lipstick is not a #Woman's way of saying, "have sex with me now!" #Shitposters, #Incels, #WhiteSupremacist's and many other wanna-be #AlphaMales think #JordanPeterson is an irrefutable #God of #Knowledge. Neither #Patriarchy or #Matriarchy is a valid solution for a social system. Get over yourself and just try being a tiny part of a bigger more inclusive system.
The powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse

'When is this going to end?': Indonesians shrouded in toxic haze
This appears to me, to be what we can expect if #Libertarians get what they want (and I think #Libertarianism is #Anarchism with a coat of paint). A world operating under #Unregulated #Capitalism is a #Hellscape. Upwind "farmers" don't give no fucks about the lungs of the downwind #Ecosystem because of #Profits high and Costs low.

Liberté, Égalité and French Fries
Damn, this #Podcast changed my opinion of #McDonalds
Typically I'm against monopolistic, centralized authority, and concentrated power as an ethical imperative. This side of the #American #Burger invasion on the world was something I would have never guessed. I'm tempted to have a #European trip adjusted so that it makes a stop there in #Marseille, #France as a central point of the trip. The whole show made this neighborhood attractive to me.

Trump fired us 'so they wouldn’t catch him,' his undocumented workers tell Samantha Bee

“Donald Trump and the Trump Organization,” immigration attorney David Leopold told Bee, “are running and engaging in a multi-state criminal conspiracy. You’re talking about forced labor and coercion, you’re talking about trafficking. The penalties for those types of crimes, you’re talking 20 years in prison. By the way, the Trump Organization is not this vast organization. We’re talking about Donald Trump, we’re talking about Ivanka, we’re talking about Eric.”

Protecting Privacy with MATH (Collab with the Census)
This is a really good video about #Privacy and Reverse Engineering #Anonymous data into revealing information. The @minutephysics host lays out some good ways to #Anonymize data. I have been personally lying about birthdays and age since decades ago. That's the main way he covers in the video.

He just did a follow-up video on the flip side of data #Privacy. It's a bit counterintuitive and I learned a tiny thing I didn't think about before.

Merriam-Webster's twitter account throws shade at US POTUS
This tweet is pretty funny. It's following #Trump's #Sharpie-gate. #FunFact altering #NOAA weather information is a federal crime.

The link to the tweet is M-W restoring #funny & archaic words to identify people in unflattering ways. #Mumpsimus was highlighted in the tweet (and it prompted #Trumpsimus), but that tweet links to a great list of fun words.

The Economics of Sports Gambling (Ep. 388)
This is so "nail-on-the-head" for @Fantasy Sports Discussion because it's touching on some of the best parts of #Fantasy #Sports in general despite being specifically about #FantasyFootball.

Early in the #Podcast, they discuss the #Auction type draft for a #Rotisserie #League.
GETHERS: So you put any sum of money that works — in the league I play in, the initial input is $260, and you have to put together a team roster, the same way the Yankees or the Mets or the Dodgers or the Kansas City Royals do, within a budget of $260. In my league, we do it by auction. So if you bid $8 for a player you then have $252 to pay for the rest of your players. And what the player you own does every day, that goes into your stat sheet and it’s cumulative. And at the end of the year, the team with the best statistics wins the pennant.
That's great #Economics and #Statistics and #Gaming in general! Somebody overpays for the best player in the first pick and that means he will be thin on money for the rest of the talent. One injury on their top player and they lose the season. Being too cheap though isn't a good strategy because you'll almost guarantee that you'll have the lowest scores. Everybody is forced to play toward the middle a bit. The outcomes are very hard to predict! Therein lies the #Fun!
