2019-06-19: trying to get files (photos) off the phone via Termux built-in sshd. I have set up keys etc, and started sshd via 'sshd' in Termux. Then connect via sftp

hmm, not good. How do I get access to my pictures on the phone now? Ok, with termux-setup-storage I get a 'storage' directory in home with links. I can access it like so
tingo@kg-core1$ sftp -P 8022 10.1.161.3:storage/ Connected to 10.1.161.3. Changing to: /data/data/com.termux/files/home/storage/

2018-12-02: apps - installed Mobvoi 3.1.0-333.212, permissions: camera, contacts, position, phone, text (SMS), storage +++. The app requires me to register with email address, so I do that. The only thing the app can (supposedly) do, is to upgrade firmware on the earplugs. When I try "Headphone update" it answers "Already the latest version". It doesn't tell me the version number of the currently installed firmware - bummer.

2017-05-10: system update - a new update was downloaded. Version G900FXXS1CQD2 / G900FNEE1CQB9 / G900FXXS1CQD2 size 90,41 MB. I selected "Install now", the phone rebooted into Recovery and started the install. A while later it rebooted, the white Samsung logo blinked on the screen for a (long) while, then it started optimizing apps (332), which took a while. Afterwards the phone starts up and reports "Programvareoppdatering - Enheten er oppdatert.".
2017-05-08: battery - after 3d 2h 24m the battery is at 8% (estimated 4h left) and I put the phone on charger.
2017-05-05: restart - I powered off the S5 and on again. Reason: battery time has been down the last few weeks (less than 2 days), perhaps a power off / power on will help.

2017-04-14: subscription - during the first 14 days of Telia Smart Kontant, I used 34.9 MB (yes, megabytes) of data over the mobile network. This is very little. Today I "charged" with NOK 50.- and got a message saying that it is 215 MB (texts: 19973, MMS: 19973, speech: 19972 minutes) in my account. I will see how all this plays out.

2017-04-06: today I tried fixing up the contacts from a web browser, in Google Contacts. Still, only 90 of them syncs to the phone. Must be something wrong with the import.
2017-04-05: I removed the google account from the phone, and set it up again. Perhaps that will fix things. Nope, it did not.
2017-04-05: contacts sync problem - try something else: turn off contacts sync in settings, accounts, sync. Then in settings, applications, manage applications find "contacts storage", storage, clear data. Then go back into accounts and turn on contacts sync again. Nope, I still get only some of the contacts in my Google account, not all of them. Crap. Ok, this post might help.
2017-04-05: reboot - I rebooted the phone to see if the contacts sync problem is fixed with a reboot. Nope - it is still not working.
2017-04-05: (phone) contacts - since I converted all my contacts on the phone to google contacts (by using a .csv backup file and importing it into Google contacts) the phone only shows some of the contacts in google contacts.

2016-07-05: update - Android 6.0.1 - I booted my Asus U35jc into win7 to run Kies3 and update the phone. Backup - first I did a backup of the S5 with Kies3. There is a lot of stuff on my phone, so this takes a while. Update - the update needs 3 GB free, so I had to delete some temporary files, uninstall some apps and so on. Retry - ok, now it is "Downloading files for GALAXY S5 software update..." (this takes a while), then the S5 reboots into ODIN mode and starts downloading It says ODIN MODE PRODUCT NAME: SM-G900F CUURENT BINARY: Samsung Official SYSTEM STATUS: Custom REACTIVATION LOCK(KK): OFF KNOX WARRANTY VOID: 0x0 QUALCOMM SECURE BOOT: ENABLE (CSB) AP SWREV: S1, T1, A1, A1, P1 UDC START and a progress bar. When the progress bare reaches 100%, the S5 restarts, and Kies says that the software update is finished, and that I should disconnect and reconnect the cable. The Samsung logo blinks slowly for some minutes, then "Installing applications...", after that I unlock the SIM card, and get a "Welcome!" screen. I select English (United Kingdom) language, connect to my Wi-Fi network, (smart network switch = off), EULA, No diagnotic data to Samsung, set up Google account (email and stuff), turn off diagnostic and more stuff to Google, Restore apps and data (SM-G900F) - 71 apps, I unselect a few preinstalled ones and select "restore" Samsung-konto - skip,
2016-07-05: update - Kies3 is still the newest version, I connected my S5 and checked. Update available - "PDA: PFH / CSC:PFI / PHONE:PFD (NEE)". Unfortunately Kies3 wants to upgrade some usb driver, and on my work machine I can't do that. Crap.
2016-06-22: rebooted the phone to see if MWM would connect to my new Strata - it didn't, because it is not the correct way to do it. More info on the Strata page. 2016-06-22: app - upgraded MWM (MetaWatch Manager from 2.1.7 to 2.1.9.

2015-10-14: today at work (on the train back to the office from a meeting) the phone suddenly rebooted when I pressed the home button. I took the phone from my pocket, was going to check mail and as soon as I pressed the home button it rebooted. Battery level was at 78%, so I do not know why it rebooted.

2015-05-27: battery - huge battery drain again. This morning the phone was off due to drained battery (it was recharged yesterday), and I charged it again today. Now (at about 14:10) the battery is at 53% again. The culprit (or victim?) seems to be the process System (medietjener) - media services which has consumed 79,9% of the battery so far. Since I haven't added or changed any files on the SDcard, the problem is to figure out which of the recently upgraded apps is misbehaving.
