Pinned toot there, don't say I never give you anything. although do, obviously, feel free to point out that it's never the thing you want will do it. Blog post describing exactly how (the man page is, frankly, awful even for a unix tool) shortly forthcoming

Bought a single powerline av adaptor on eBay to add to the existing pair, after cursory research said they all interoperate. Turns out to have no buttons on it, how do I even get it to pair?

may still have to open the phone to replace the battery, mind you - it no longer lasts a day - but at recharging it just got a whole lot simpler

Having spent the last wtwo weeks mentally preparing myself to open up my phone and resolder the loose usb port - looking at repair sites, watchig videos etc - I learned today that it's not loose at all, and all that was wrong with it is it was full of impacted fluff.
