I finally have a custom ROM! My Moto G5S Plus is now running LineageOS 16 - far better than Android Nougat (v7.1.1) which was provided by Motorola. I have been very disappointed by their update speed since they were taken over by Motorola; on the contrary, I love the new navigation layout in Android P!
Recently I have started a few projects as well:
- AquaPi (aquapi.github.io) - an innovative water-saving solution for the smart home, involving Raspberry Pis connected to flow maters at all water points around the home, which send their data to one main RPi - the hub - which in turn broadcasts a localhost website. We also aim to integrate this with the new Google Home app
- The FLL (in Black Thunder - rs-blackthunder.blogspot.com) - Reading School's FIRST LEGO League team has begun preparation for this year's competition. See our blog for more info.
- An RC car with VR capabilities built-in, with a range of around 150m. Stay tuned for a link to our blog and more details.
Keep up-to-date with the linked websites for more information.
I have started learning Java; this should be done within the next month or so.
