    Have you tried flashing the stock rom using recovery/ adb sideload?

    So here's my SOT after clearing the data/cache of Google Play Services. Still horrendous. What I've noticed is that it consumes a whole lot more battery while the data is switched on, even if the screen is off. For instance, I had switched the data on in the morning today and used the phone for about 15 minutes in the 5 hours that the data was on. The battery still went down from 65% to about 25%!

    Anyway, I used GSAM monitor (Screenshots included) to find out what was draining my battery so much and it turns out that the culprit was a process called 'Service (adsprpcd)' which had used about 21% battery alone! Is anyone else facing any such issue too, and if so, has anyone found any cure for this?

    Is it still bad when Location is turned off? Also try clearing cache in recovery mode.

    Yes everytime I updated my Android Note 4 it always unroots itself so I imagine it will do the same with any Android phone.

    I knew how it looked and I can live with it. It doesn't mean it's perfect. As for leaving Cyanogenmod, I, in my naïvety, assumed that they wouldn't, ahem, settle for a bare bones OS (why didn't they just fork it? T_T). Obviously, I was wrong.

    Tried your battery suggestion (nice job hiding it, Google), doesn't work - percentage still disappears while charging.

    My OP3's vibration started clicking today. It doesn't happen every time, but it makes a tapping sound like is breaking. I did update to OOS 3.2 yesterday, but I didn't notice any issues till today.

    I tried that first thing and it didn't get me anywhere. I even reflashed the ROM and didn't root it again.

    Can you maybe tell me what this does?
    My router is a provider-provided one with very limited possibilities to 'adapt'...
    Thanks in advance!

    It stops the router from limiting the bandwidth depending on the thing that is being used

    There is only one hardware variant of the OnePlus 3. If your phone works with 4G and if you are not getting 4G+, the problem is different. Maybe check your APN settings if you haven't already

    Developer options:

    APN settings depend on network, find them by searching:

    (your carrier) (your country) APN settings

    E.G. T-Mobile US APN settings
    in to Google.

    Also check these links on things to do with android:

    Just quick question which is confusing for me. Apn.... So my is preset to something like epc.Tmobile. I am getting lte and it's fast. Reading forums it says to use fast.tmoble since it's faster and more reliable. Then there is one WITH iv4/ iv6.... Agh

    So I read you have to load some lines and skip others.. I get that but in the settings it just shows the buttons with a click box to choose. So CAN I just try each one out and the setting preloads or do I choose a different one and then have to enter line by line??? Thx
