3 Oct 2017

Mostly updated Hybrid Backup Sync references (mostly page 7) seeing as the new backup station replacement has finally gone official (non beta).

Also removed Crashplan references because they are no longer interested in servicing normal users. All cloud articles (mostly on page12) referencing crashplan also got edited as well.

Haven't really kept up with the current situation. Did users move to crashplan business and pay twice what they did before with other new terms of service, or did they move to something better which was closer to the previous pricing model?

Maybe this is an over reaction, and the business plan is good still for NAS applications? Cause even $10 is still far better than $50 monthly (which Idrive is trying to gouge users with, and thats only for 10Tb ish i'm told, compared to Crashplan unlimited). Maybe will update in future if i know more about it. Bit busy lately to find out myself.

Which was why crashplan removed for now from faq. If it's still good please message and i'll update accordingly.

How to install android onto smartphone, and other tips and tricks



24 Aug 2017

-updated (page16) *i've put a lot of work into editting the android FAQ section. I believe it's ready to go to final release, because it's sufficiently filled with most of the info you need. The target android device i use for it is for smartphones, though some of what is mentioned may also apply to other android devices using the same platform where applicable.

Topics covered is all the most important ones like how to root, how to secure android device, battery optimization, app recommendations, how to backup on android, how to modify sound audio with enhancements like viper4arise, etc....

I only added one android mention on the clean list rather than the many subtitles because it's not too relevant to qnap,
also i put them all under a single page so it should be okay even if i don't list sub headers for all of the android related stuff.
