Many OnePlus One owners still love their phone and have no need to upgrade outside of having a relatively current version of Android for security and stability. OnePlus has released a handful of new models since the original One release, and updates, although pretty delayed, were still coming to get the official shipping OS up to snuff. Sure, OnePlus and Cyanogen parted ways in 2015 and OnePlus developed OxygenOS as the mainstay OS for all their US phones.
This uneasy but stable situation all changed when Cyanogen announced they were shutting=down in December 2016. I snagged the last build and posted it for download on this post.
Here are the download links:
Sadly, the stuck tape for me was a symptom of a larger issue with the drive itself. But, we have an HP LTO4 autoloader displaying an odd error on the LCD
I tried everything via the hardware interface, but we knew a tape was stuck in there. So, I removed the drive unit and saw the tape.
Rather than just cutting into the mechanism, I found this video on youtube to at least try and extract the stuck LTO4 tape through the proper process.
I was able to extract the tape and found the post-it note jammed in the slot, but that wasn’t the ultimate issue that doomed the drive.
The drive mechanism that grabs and guides the cartridge broke and was not able to be easily repaired.
So, the drive was a loss, but hey, I was able to get the tape out. The video was absolutely key. Good luck to you.
Ran into a tough issue with a Samsung Digital Signage unit that turned out to be quite a hassle. The unit was inconsistent on the wireless network and unable to reliably push content from MagicInfo. After numerous attempts to correct directly with the unit, I called tech support and eventually got through this solution. If you are having the some inconsistency with a DBE series unit, be sure to go into the Menu/Support and get the latest firmware. The issue with the unit we purchased was that the unit was too many versions behind the current firmware, so it wouldn’t perform an over the air update.
Here is the manual way to accomplish the update. My unit model was a DB55E and my version was 1014.
YMMV but hope this helps you without consuming the time it took me to get to a solution.
I’ve read The Atlantic off and on for many years in print and online. The sure is a regular stop for me on daily news and I’ve appreciated many of their articles over the years. I’ve tweeted and linked to their content dozens if not hundreds of times over the years.
When I hit their site tonight, they seem to be taking a new approach to visitors. They started dishing the ad-blocker shame banner.
I understand the concept. They want to shame me into some conversion. But here is the thing, I took a few seconds to try and close the image to get to content but I just gave up and left. Isn’t that what most will end up doing?
I understand the predicament they must be in, but I struggle to see how executing a barrier like this would generate a reader to become a paying customer.
Shame and barriers can’t be the right approach can it?
