Resetting the OnePlus data limit behaviour

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/18

Somehow I managed to get a OnePlus phone to have the read data limit line stuck at ~5 gigabyte whereas the warning was at ~15 gigabyte.

This caused all sorts of havoc when I passed the 5 gigabyte mark: cellular data would turn off, I would get all sorts of warnings and – worst of all – I could not reset the red line.

The solution was at [WayBack] Unable to remove “Cellular data limit exceeded” notification even after changing the data limit on OnePlus 2’s OOS 3.5.5:

There are numerous discussions offering a solution to this:

  1. Goto Settings > Backup & reset > Network settings reset.
  2. Now select the affected SIM card
  3. Now click Reset Settings.

OnePlus OxygenOS built-in analytics: disable it as soon as you can

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/10/16

Remove the OnePlus Analytics service because of privacy violations:

Source: [WayBackOnePlus OxygenOS built-in analytics

We take a look at the analytics built into the OxygenOS, the flavour of Android built by phone manufacturer OnePlus.

The analytics data is sent over https, but it contains way too much information on your privacy.

This also taught me about this interesting project: [WayBack] OWASP Zed Attack Proxy Project – OWASP

These tweets describe how to disabled it:

It was also present OnePlus Five, I found it through:

  1. Settings
  2. Developer Options
  3. Running Services
  4. OnePlus System Service
  5. OnePlusAnalyticsJobService

Until removed, it restarts at every boot.

Removing the service seems more permanent than the alternative [WayBack] Dear OnePlus, please stop spying on my phone:

  1. Settings
  2. Advanced
  3. Join user experience program
  4. toggle this option to off

It is unclear to me what turned that option on in the first place.

Lock screen dialer shortcut gone in 6.0 – Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/09/02

Solution:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Click Apps
  3. Click
  4. Gear Icon
  5. Click Default Apps
  6. Click Assist & voice input
  7. Click Assist app.
  8. Changing that to None instead of Google App puts the dialer shortcut back on the lock screen, but it also disables long pressing the home button to launch the Google App/Now.
