Last month, Google released the stable version of Android 13, and with it came the release of the source code as part of the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). This means that developers and enthusiasts have been able to start creating the latest Android 13 update for various devices.
Real honored veterans are not left without attention. For example, enthusiasts have created a build based on Android 13 for Samsung’s six-year-old flagship, the Galaxy S7. Of course, this is a very early and unofficial build. However, the bravest Galaxy S7 owners can try LineageOS 20 based on Android 13. A similar build is available for the five year old Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8.
For an early test build, development was surprisingly stable. Most of the key features such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, fingerprint scanner, sound, cameras, hardware acceleration and so on are reported to work fine.
In any case, it is aimed at enthusiasts, it may work unstable and incorrectly. You need to install such firmware only at your own peril and risk, knowing well what you are doing.
An experimental build of LineageOS 20 was created by a well-deserved member of the XDA Developers community under the nickname Ivan_Meler.
New issue with Windows 11 22H2: Downloading and copying files can now slow down by up to 40%
Another problem has been found in the Windows 11 22H2 operating system. This time it affects the speed of file copying. The chief program manager of the company, Ned Pyle, spoke about it. As it turned out, when copying large files from a remote PC or server to a Windows 11 computer, the speed drops dramatically in the process.
When copying files of several gigabytes, the speed indicator dropped by 40%, and it was on the Windows 11 22H2 system. According to Pyle, this may be related to the operation of the SMB network protocol, this is by far the most likely scenario. However, the same was noted even when copying local files on the computer itself.
The company continues to look for the cause of the problem, at the moment it is unknown. Users are advised to use the robocopy or xcopy utilities with the /J option to copy files. In this case, everything works as it should. An example code looks like this:
robocopy someserversomeshare c:somefolder somefile.ned /J
Also, according to media reports, you can use other copying utilities such as TeraCopy, FastCopy or CopyMaestro.
This is not the first problem with Windows 11 22H2. Printer failures have been previously reported.

Elon Musk wants to create X – “an application for everything.” Buying Twitter will speed up the process
On his Twitter page, billionaire Elon Musk said on Tuesday that the Twitter purchase is “an accelerator for building X, the app for everything.”
Prior to that, he sent a letter to Twitter in which he announced his intention to acquire the microblogging network for an initial cost of $44 billion. This is $54.2 per share.
As for “app X”, according to Bloomberg, this service could be very similar to China’s WeChat super app. The billionaire previously openly admired the app, which grew from a messaging service into a mini internet with a billion user base.
He has speculated about making Twitter more useful, pointing out that he wants it to be more like WeChat and TikTok, the video-sharing service that has become popular in the US and around the world. And he drew parallels with the so-called super apps that are common in parts of Asia, allowing people to use a single smartphone app for a range of services, from communication to calling a car.
While Musk did not reveal his final plans for Twitter, he did say the service could charge business users and government officials.
