mediatek exploit - from what I read it is in the bootloader should shouldn't be a security risk

But, the software necessary for the rooting is somebody's stuff, fully-compiled, and thus vulnerable at numerous levels

So, it can't be monetized

Fire 7 soft rooting through mediatek expolit - current model

I got my 6 yr old a 7 which is a nice tablet. I thought I cancelled the order and re-ordered, but I got two orders (does amazon do this on purpose?)

So, I will hack the 2nd tablet..

This uses a mediatek exploit that exists on every mediatek device and can only be fixed with new hardware

I feel so lonely liking android - only problem w it is that it is captured but there is rooting of course

can you boot from a graphics card? - why tf not?
- they cost more than computers fast enough to keep up w them

intel core i5 is all you need for a $100 nvida card

Has any one doe TFTP boot (encyr-tunn, of course) aka linux X terminal ? (ram is so cheap, storage so volatile)
- and, I asked b4 - can you do games, vid editing, etc over network'd X?
- gee I wonder where wayland is wrt to the network!?

@rob and I were discussing low-cost home storage - upshot, you can load linux on any android phone (f-droid catalog), and easily support 3 USB-enclosed drives while still getting power with an 'on the go' multi-cable

set up the phone as a 'hotspot,' login thru wifi, and save/update files as you (probably) already do with shell scripts incl xcopy

really, all the security you need is a complicated password / phrase

super easy esp considering the phone would be off most of the time

Still running win 7 here (for kid's roblox - anybody else?

I am hopefully relying on 0Patch and put free avast on it and some firewall software

I hear there will be a last update today which includes a scary patch for Crypt32 (which should make anybody choose a non-microsoft OS)

at least 20% of the world's computers have win 7 still on them.. seems that govt's should be concerned about them... even enough to reverse engineer MS patching and supply beneficial viruses - that actually happened in the early 2000s but nobody's govt of course

Video-editing over X-windows over LAN, can I do it?

Quest is: will I be able to export a video editor or games to another linux box if I get it a good graphics card for it?

My kid needs windows for roblox and her win7 box is doomed of course. I bought a win 10 core i7 with good graphics for her, but I need access to it to do vid editing. I have linux running on it.

Signals from the CPU to the GPU can go over the net (right?) Is this efficient enough for intensive graphics?

Thanks

I haven't gotten any responses for info on free&open graphics and video graphics basic questions - this tells me that there are no answers
What I feel about this is that 'FOSS' is really looking to create apps like commercial ones but free
What I hoped to see are individual graphics methodologies made accessible to frameworks, such as a browser
This will never happen
NOT because is evil, but because there is no methodological framework that is free which goes back to stallman/gnu fake unix

I need a wireframe modeling tool (free&open) for making theoretical boat designs in blocks (like a 3D InkScape) converting to geometrical lines (sine wave, ellipse, hyperbolic --but not bezier) would be good (but not necessary at moment)

this is a little awkward - I have been wanting to leave FaceBook (for many reasons) but a sailing group I started years ago just hit its stride based on my design ideas (self-pat on back)

I am editing ideas on beta.wikiversity:
