    More people than you might think use Bing

    Pretty sure they are, Also didn't Apple change Siri to use Bing? Not sure if it's still like that but that could also bolster the results.
  2. This seems a bit over dramatic. They're not blocking it. It's just not available in "Exclusive Fullscreen" mode However something seems not right here. These seem like limitations Microsoft created within the Universal Windows Platform. Is Destiny 2 going to be a UWP game. I really hope not, but this makes me think it might be. They even call the display mode "Exclusive Fullscreen" Perhaps Bungie is trying to take flack for some of the lacking features before they announce it as a UWP game. (I really, really hope I'm wrong)

    Google survive Genericide

    Perhaps it's only me, but when I tell somebody to google it. I mean use Google specifically. Chances that most of the other search engines will provide anything useful as quickly or as highly ranked is at most very slim. If I was generalising for somebody to look online I wouldn't say to google it. I'm pretty sure bing only gets reffered to as a joke. I've never heard anybody say "bing it" without being sarcastic or facetious. (Sure somebody probably has but I've never heard it)
  4. Have you tried this: adb shell pm hide com.amazon.phoenix with adb enabled
  5. It looks like amazon replaced the pre-loader in their 6.6 update in september. It prevents this method of rooting. I can't find anybody who has managed to root it since.
  6. That's all I can think of sorry. If you really want root I would suggest getting a new phone. Something more power user friendly like a OnePlus or a Nexus (Not so much pixel) (I'm sure there are plenty of other choices) What is it you're trying to accomplish. Perhaps there is a way to do it without root (Although I imagine you've already checked this)
  7. That is the same method. Might be set out a little differently but it is doing the same thing in the same way. If you have to non prime version you can enable adb and oem unlocking. Reboot into your bootloader. fastboot oem unlock (phone will be wiped) turn on the phone. enable adb reboot into bootloader again. fastboot boot path/to/twrp/twrp.zip flash supersu.zip
  8. I probably should have asked this before. Do you have the amazon version of this phone?
  9. Hmm that's unfortunate. Have you installed the MTK preload driver? it can be found here. It could be your USB cables like it's suggesting. (I know you said you've tried 2 cables but micro usb B connectors are horrible and are known for failing) It could be the USB port on your phone. If your phone is up to date it is possible that they've since patched the way they root the phone.
  10. We really could use a little more information. have you enabled usb debugging on your phone? Are you plugging it in while it's waiting for download? Then you press the power button until you hear the new device tone in windows, then let go?
  11. Hmmm So brexit was just the UK preparing?

    Oppo A57 Released-16MP selfie cam?!?!?

    It makes sense since both Oppo and OnePlus are owned by BBK. It is probably the same camera. The whole phone actually looks very similar.

    No mouse or keyboard at login screen

    You're just trying to use the machine as a media center? You could use any Linux Distro you like with something like Kodi on top. or go with something like OpenELEC which is basically Kodi bundled with a super minimal OS that is just a Media Machine.

    No mouse or keyboard at login screen

    Well that sucks. The only real option you have is to boot off of installation media to get to the command prompt. Then remove your USB drivers. Easier to re-install at that point. :-( If you can find a way to enable RDP you could possibly remote in. However there is no way I'm aware of to do that with access to the machine directly (not via installation media)
