  • Ente Auth: open-source Authy alternative for 2FA

    If you have an Android phone (even if just an old one you don't use anymore, or a cheap one you're willing to buy) and you're willing to root it and wipe all data on it, you can:

    1. Unlock the bootloader (if not already done) (this will wipe your device)

    2. Install Authy on it and log into your Authy account

    3. Root your device (I used Magisk [1])

    4. Once rooted, you can access the system partition and extract the TOTP secrets, then import them into a different app (there's a script to make this easier here [2])

    It was somewhat of a pain in the ass to do this, but Authy really annoyed me with how difficult they make it to migrate off of their bullshit, so it was worth it to me to finally be able to delete their app after extracting the secrets this way.

  • Rooting the Boox Tab Mini C
    2 projects | /r/Onyx_Boox | 29 Oct 2023
    At this point download locally the Magisk APK onto your computer found here: https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/releases. Reboot your Tab Mini C by holding the power button until you see the power come back on and the default power on screen begin loading. Once it has fully booted copy the Magisk APK, `boot_a.bin`, and `boot_b.bin` files via USB. Make certain to have backups of the `boot_a.bin` and `boot_b.bin` files in case something goes wrong (such as you bricking your device) and you need the old firmware. Install the Magisk APK. For the rest of this we will be following a summarized version of the instructions here: "https://topjohnwu.github.io/Magisk/install.html". Once the Magisk app is installed open it and press the "Install" button. Then click "Select and Patch a File" and select `boot_a.bin` then `boot_b.bin` files to install Magisk on both. At this point one should rename them to be `magisk_patched-boot_a.img` and `magisk_patched-boot_b.img` based on which one Magisk patched to make it easier for you. At this point transfer `magisk_patched-boot_a.img` and `magisk_patched-boot_b.img` back to the main computer over USB. Open up QFIL and once again run `adb reboot edl`. FAIRLY QUICKLY to avoid errors click the "Select Port" button and click the USB port which the Tab Mini C is plugged into and then click OK. Still quickly click "Tools" -> "Partition Manager" and then click OK on the popup. Within the partition manager find `boot_a` and `boot_b`. For each individually right click on the partition and then click "Manage Partition Data". Then click "Load Image" and point to the corresponding `magisk_patched-boot_a.img` and `magisk_patched-boot_b.img` depending on which partition you're patching. Once both of them are patched, quit out of QFIL. Force the reboot of the device by holding down the power button. Open the Magisk app and click on "Install" at which point their should be a new option "Direct Install". Use that to install directly onto the device after which it should give you the option to reboot. Reboot it and you now have a wonderfully rooted device. Happy reading
