Only if every phone used some kind of actual useful backup and restore like twrp natively instead of requiring users to root and unlock bootloader's almost all errors of this fashion would be eliminated. Sigh

Real talk, Google play services is decimating people's batteries... Both in battery consumption and over all battery health. Ever since android 5.0, life expectancy of the batteries of phones went from an average of 4 years with removable battery down to 1-2 years average with non removable battery, on a device that costs 2‐3x more...

My non-smart phone was once suffering freezing up because of a picture message someone sent, which was simply too large for it. Luckily I could just delete all of that person's messages at once, in the message list.

You can screenshot that picture and maintain the colors, and put it as a wallpaper Screenshots are usually sRGB so you won't get the problem, just don't save the original image and use it as a wallpaper, otherwise it will crash

ok genuine question...isn't "do error catching code for everything" like one of the first things you learn programming? I suppose these ssystems are more complex than a simple program, but how is there not mass number of error catching logic that checks for out of bounds exceptions and things?

The image didnt crash because of the colorspace.. Alright, yes it did, but not in the way you explained it. Android can and will convert the formats of colorspaces to fit srgb, and thats exactly what its doing here too, but it incorrectly rounds some number up, so a pixel should be at intensity 256, wich... Isnt possible, wich android detects, so it kills the process... Side effect of killing the process... Android itself is the process, so it bootloops forever...

Actually, it's not just the expanded color space that caused the crash with the wallpaper. Android automatically converts these images back to SRGB, using numbers with more bits than SRGB during the conversion process and bring each pixel back to the SRGB range. The crash was actually caused by one pixel where after the conversion was left at 256.

At least my Shoutmon (Digimon) Wallpapers are safe from triggering these crashes. Sense there are art pictures.

Why do the in-video links to other videos the host sometimes points to in the upper right corner not work? It's been the same for all your videos I've watched. I've even tried a different browser, and right clicking and copying the URL link, but that always only gets the primary video's URL.
