After careful consideration and entirely too long trying to make sense of the xda-developers forum, I have decided to downgrade the firmware on the newer phone and see what difference that makes

For a supposedly open-source system, android hacking inevitably seems to involve installing way more random binaries from dodgy-looking file sharing sites than I am frankly altogether happy about

makes me happy: author of ANTtester replied to my email, his sources are on Github makes me sad: running Simulant+ seems to involve qemu and windows ISOs and getting a windows license key

(I don't know why this machine seems not to have a DSDM ACPI table. It did have a windows 8 sticker on the underside but years of use have worn out any text that may once have been displayed there)

I have working ANT+ on my backup phone, but it's buggy and keeps erroring on my primary phone - it says it works but it doesn't stay connected to the sensors. Both Moto Potter, both running exactly the same ROM image. Could be

  • something "left over" on one or both when I flashed them
  • slightly different hardware (XT1865 vs XT1864)
  • different baseband version (primary phone is newer)
  • actual hardware problem
  • something else?

I can't make the backup phone my primary because the camera lens is cracked and the battery is going downhill, guess I have no choice but to debug it
