I know its generally recommended to not enable dev options for many reasons, increasing exponentially as the user's knowledge of the options decreases.
I'm curious about a lot of them, and I don't run in such technical circles. I figure we could atleast get a nuanced discussion going!
I do have two burning questions I need answers to, though, and I CANNOT find the answer on search.
1) Tethering Hardware acceleration on by default at first boot, never-enabled dev options
Its on by default with a fresh install of GrapheneOS. You can see it when you enable the Developer toggles the first time. However, if you turn Dev options back OFF (having touched nothing) it then turns tethering hardware acceleration OFF. And forever it will stay without further interaction. Even if you turn them back on, which was my initial thought. Maybe it's a visual misrepresentation? What do fer and why come do?
2) Logger buffer size.
This one is just stupid when you google it. You just get a massive spiral of mouth breathers all repeating the same audio-delay explanation almost verbatim.
Obviously this does not refer to simple audio processing alone, right??
My personal experience has been that higher seems to make my phone extremely responsive to almost any type of input? But I remember a few android versions ago when I first learned about it (and most recommendations since), it was always stated to lower it to the minimum. Why? I definitely get stranger performance with it on the lowest. I can't be crazy, right? Its not laggy, by any means, it just seems worse at multitasking and network response times.
Who tf knows? WTF is this setting and just give me it like a five year old, less means ? higher setting allows ?
Anyway, seriously those are my main two. I never mess with anything there since maybe last year. But these have always stuck out and never have met resolution to me.
Thanks to the future angels who grant me the wisdom to see.
