Attempting to flash TWRP on Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 simply doesn’t work

I’m attempting to flash and boot into TWRP to install LineageOS, but try as I might the process described on the LOS website simply doesn’t work. My first step is to attempt to flash TWRP via Heimdall. I boot into Download Mode, and run the following command:

 heimdall flash --RECOVERY twrp-3.2.3-0-gts28vewifi.img --no-reboot 

It’s not really clear whether this works. Heimdall claims it was 100% successful, but a progress bar shows up with what looks like 1% remaining, that never completes. If I shut down here and attempt to reboot into recovery mode by holding Power + Volume Up + Home, the device just hangs at the splash screen that says Samsung Galaxy. I’ve tried literally dozens of different guides and nothing works.

Browser Client com plugin proprio openGL flash

Como eu poderia fazer um browser em c# e c++ que o mesmo possa rodar plugin openGL e Flash proprio, exemplo o Maxthon 5 que baixa um flash que roda um openGL, nos demais browser, esse openGL da um erro que acaba não rodando as texturas, então a ideia era criar um CLIENT nessa linguaguem que rode igual o maxthon mas apenas pro client do projeto, rodando o link como se fosse um browser

Yongnuo Updated YN600EX-RT II Flash not linking with Canon 77D

I think I’ve done everything in the manual and instructional videos I’ve watched, but I can’t seem to get my new Yongnuo YN600EX-RT II flash to link up with my Canon 77D using the Easy Wireless setup. I want to use it as a wireless slave. Optical slave works fine, but the 10-18mm lens casts a shadow from the onboard flash. It also works fine onboard the camera.

I asked on an Amazon product page (I needed it soon!) and someone said it’s compatible, but Yonguo doesn’t list it in the product description. I love the 77D, but it seems like an outlier in Canon’s line.

Any ideas? I don’t want to buy a wireless trigger. This CNET video tells me I’m not misunderstanding the concept!

Here’s the back of the flash:

What camera shoulder bag to choose for small DSLR with 2-3 extra lenses and flash?

I would like to purchase a camera shoulder bag to fit a small DSLR camera with an attached lens, 2-3 extra lenses and a flash.

The collection of lenses I am planning to carry can vary depending on the situation, but I would like to be able to carry at least these selections in a manner that one lens is attached to the camera and 2 or 3 others have the lens caps on both sides:

  1. Zoom, telezoom and 50mm
    • Canon 55-250mm
    • Canon 18-55mm
    • Canon 50mm f/1.8 prime
  2. Many zooms
    • Canon 55-250mm
    • Canon 18-55mm
    • Canon 10-18mm
  3. Primes and ultrawide
    • Canon 24mm f/2.8 prime (pancake lens)
    • Canon 50mm f/1.8 prime
    • Canon 85mm f/1.8 prime
    • Canon 10-18mm

Note the 50mm and 24mm together are the size of a zoom lens, so even though one of the lens selections has 4 lenses, in practice it still counts as 3.

I also have a small DSLR (Canon 2000D) and a flash (Canon 430EX-III RT). I also ordered a MagMod MagGrip and a MagMod MagBounce.

There are several criteria I have:

  • Weather sealing is a must
  • Weight of the bag should be reasonably low (I calculated the shoulder bag would add total max weight to about 2.6 – 2.8 kg depending on the bag weight if carrying lens selection 3, flash and MagMod equipment; that’s the worst possible case — although I hate weighty equipment, I have carried temporarily a laptop in a shoulder bag with 3.5 kg total weight which is slightly uncomfortable, so 2.6 – 2.8 kg should be barely acceptable)
  • Should be durable
  • Shouldn’t be excessively large in external dimensions; no need for “future expansion” as the amount of equipment I can carry is anyway limited by weight

My research has led me to believe that of the Lowepro bags, Nova 160 AW II and 170 AW II would be too small and thus I’ll have to purchase Nova 180 AW II if going with a Lowepro bag.

Can anyone recommend what bag to choose? Is my estimate correct that Nova 180 AW II would be necessary? Any other good choices than Lowepro?

One option would be to go to a retailer that has various Lowepro bags on the shelf and try to fit all the equipment to the bag, but this is complicated by two things: (1) the 10-18mm and MagMod equipment I ordered haven’t yet arrived, (2) one of the retailers I frequently buy stuff from doesn’t have 170 AW II on the shelf, so I can’t try all three.

I’m not going to use the bag for foreign travel. If I’m someday visiting another country and carry a DSLR for the trip, I’ll buy another, smaller camera bag for the trip.

Are any good flash diffusers available apart from DIY paper one?

I built a homemade flash diffuser from paper:

Flash diffuser 1

Flash diffuser 2

It diffuses the flash, while at the same time directing much of it to the direction of the subject. Of course, some flash power is wasted by lighting up the ceiling (the paper transmits some light through), but at least there’s some directionality.

It achieves excellent results (on the left, with diffuser, on the right, direct flash):

With and without diffuser

My question is, are there any similar diffusers commercially available? Of course I don’t mean an exact replica built from paper, but rather a more durable diffuser that achieves the equivalent functionality and is somewhat directional like my DIY diffuser.

By a diffuser, I mean something that can be used on the camera and something that is so lightweight it’s feasible to carry it and the camera around. Of course, with an off-the-camera flash, you can use umbrellas, but they are too large to be carried around.

Yongnuo YN600EX-RT II Flash Speedlite

I have a typical newbie question. I’ve done HDR for a couple of years now and I see its limitations, so I’m ready to start using flash.

I do real estate photography with the Canon EF-S 10-18mm lens on a 77D. I’m not quite comfortable using manual mode, so I set it on Av with f/6.3. Almost all the homes I shoot are less than 4000 sqft.

I plan to use a flash or two on stands just outside of the frame. I assume I’ll have to use a diffuser because of the ultra-wide angle lens.

I’m thinking about buying this flash. My question is, is this overkill? If not, what would you recommend?

Also, will it work in E-TTL mode using the Canon Easy Wireless system?

Thanks, Bruce

Error when Installing Flash Lubuntu x32 18.04 & opera 45

I read & followed along post How do I install Flash in Opera?

When I ran “sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin” I got … “Reading package lists… Done Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done Package adobe-flashplugin is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source

E: Package ‘adobe-flashplugin’ has no installation candidate”

Some background info: I downloaded & unzipped adobe flash PPAPI version. The readme.txt said to “Unpack the plugin tar.gz and copy all the files to /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/ ” I didnt have an adobe-flashplugin directory in /usr/lib but created one /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/flash and put ALL the files in there.
