#General: My Nexus 5X has bootlooped! Temporary fix!


I have a Nexus 5X or I had a working Nexus 5X, and last week it turned black and has finally bootlooped! I bought it from Google Store, so I decided to contact Google. I knew that the warranty was expired on Dec. 2017 (Google repeated it), but this is a common problem of the Nexus 5X, so I thought that maybe I have a chance! But NO! The support was nice, but the solution was to contact LG. A death path! Meaning: No goodwill from Google! Nothing! I contacted LG, and the solution was to send the phone to this address:

DUX Logistics & Tech Services GmbH, Neben dem Mühlweg 20, 65474 Bischofsheim

which doesn't have nice reviews (search the company name on google and you'll see).

#Ubuntu 16.04 LTS: Broken SD Card Reader Support


I am writing this post as a tutorial or a 'keep' note for myself, but I think it could be interesting for a lot of people. At work I'm using a Latitude Dell Laptop with dual boot (Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Windows 10). The laptop has a SD card reader. Usually I work under Ubuntu while I am programming, and the SD card reader support is broken! But typing the following on a terminal, makes it works again:

sudo rmmod sdhci_pci sdhci_acpi sdhci
sudo modprobe sdhci debug_quirks2="0x10000"
sudo modprobe sdhci_pci sdhci_acpi sdhci

It seems to be a problem since Linux kernel version 4.1.8. A bug report here confirms it, with the possible workaround here.

To make this workaround permanent, you need to create a .conf file with the debug_quirks option in the folder /etc/modprobe.d/. Executing the following command on a terminal creates the needed file:

sudo sh -c 'echo options sdhci debug_quirks=0x10000 >> /etc/modprobe.d/sdhci-pci.conf'

Update: if it doesn't work with that, try with this value. It should be slower, but it works:

sudo modprobe sdhci debug_quirks2="0x4"

#Photo Gallery: Melbourne


As I promised some photos of Melbourne (Australia). Bangkok photos are coming this week. I don't know if you noticed, but I added two new repositories to GitHub: Both repositories are extensions for PageKit. The first one allows you to add Google Adsense ads to the posts. The second one extends the PageKit blog plugin to add categories and tags to the blog posts. I was/am quite busy these weeks, but I am writing the README files. I need to check them again. Enjoy the photos!

Happy New Year!
