However, if you're using the device for development, I don't understand why you would want to run an aftermarket ROM.
They patch the OS and they send the patch to a bunch of handset makers. They integrate the patch and push the update.
Only the first sentence is true. Google does not integrate the patched version of Android with the manufacturers finished OS. And Google certainly doesn't push out OTAs.
The main point of my post was questioning the logic that major drug manufacturers are outsourcing significant portions of their manufacturing leading to this issue. Rather than it being caused by smaller genetic manufacturers. Especially since the bulk of antibiotics are generic at this point.
Not to mention the hair-splitting the alastronomers use to keep from admitting that the Earth and Moon are a binary planet such that the orbit of either one around Sol has a strong sinusoidal component.
I thought the distinction was that the center of the Earth and Moon's mass was still within the physical circumstance of the planet. While binary planets have that center of mass somewhere between the planet's. That doesn't seem like splitting hairs to me. That seems to be a pretty clear distinction.
Who here can fix a motherboard on a washer or dryer? anyone?
That depends on what component is fried. A dried up or blown electrolytic capacitor, no problem. Some small poorly marked discrete component, might be tough to figure out the proper capacitance (or whatever). Some mystery IC, good luck.
The problem isn't the physical act of replacing the component (except in size constrained devices, like smartphones). The problem is identifying the failed component.
And yet, we still have small website operators here. They just don't manage their own checkout process. It does sound like you have more strenuous record keeping regulations though, and the tax inclusive price thing would be a pain.
All this "fix" probably does is heat and cool the board evenly to cause it to flatten out.
