How to bypass the lock screen from “Always On Display” when my Samsung S21 is already unlocked

I have enabled “Always On Display” (AOD) mode on my new Samsung S21, as well as “Smart Lock”. I have also enabled pattern and fingerprint (FP) unlocking.

“Smart lock” is set to trust my home address based on GPS coordinates so when I am at home, the phone is unlocked most of the time (please note that “home” is where I live and “Home” is the phone Home screen).

When the AOD screen is on, I can double tap to exit AOD and ideally go to the Home screen. When I do that at home, it takes me to the lock screen first however, where I have to swipe in order to go to the Home screen, even if the phone is already unlocked.

This intermediate step is unnecessary as since the phone is already unlocked, there is no need to show the lock screen. Instead, I would like to go from the AOD screen directly to the Home screen when double tapping.

When I unlock using the FP on the AOD screen, that actually does take me directly to the Home screen, as expected. However using the FP is no longer an option as FP unlocking stopped working after I put on a screen protector (not an issue since the FP didn’t work that well anyway – I needed usually at least three tries for my FP to be recognized and be able to unlock the phone, despite storing several version of the same FP).

My old Samsung S8 used to work better from this standpoint as it had an option to show the Home button on the AOD screen, which when pressed would take me directly to the Home screen. I could not find a similar option on the S21.

I contacted Samsung support but they were not able to help – all they suggested was to restart the phone and to reset it to factory settings, despite my telling them that I had restarted it a few times with no change in behavior, and that this was not a malfunction but rather a configuration issue.

My question: is there a way to configure the S21 to bypass the lock screen when AOD is active and the phone is already unlocked thanks to “smart lock”?

Is it possible to bypass install UAC prompt without registry editing (Windows 10)

You cannot install without administrator permissions that you don’t have.

If you have any virtual machine product that is already installed on
the computer, you could create a virtual machine, which is basically
a computer where you are the only administrator.
This way, you will not enter in conflict with your company’s
security policy.

Another solution to installing software products is to find a portable version
of these products that can work without installation.
The website
contains a list of such products.

php – Bypass Local File Inclusion(LFI) prevention filters

I have these two LFI filters and i want to bypass them

        $bad = str_replace('../','',$_GET('bad'));
        while( substr_count($bad, '../', 0)) {
            $bad = str_replace('../', '', $bad);

I tried various ways and i was not able to bypass them, also the php wrappers are mostly used in php 5.* versions and before and i have php 7.6 version.

antivirus – Bypass Windows Defender

I am currently working on my own Rat and I got a FUD reverse shell.
But I have a problem…
I can only connect to the shell with nectat. But I want to use Meterpreter because I can do more things with it.

If I start a listener on metasploit I get a Connection and a Shell but if I move the session to the background and connect again I don’t get the connection again.

So I don’t want to use the code anymore and that’s why I am wondering if there is another way to bypass the windows defender , or make it FUD with a meterpreter exe.

I tried codes like VeilEvasion or unicorn but these are outdated and don’t work anymore…

I hope you can help me

Fields not appearing in View Rest API unless Bypass group access control

I have a simple content type with lots of fields that I am attempted to expose via the views api. When calling from Postman as an unauthenticated user some of the fields are coming up empty. The view doesn’t have any relationships and the field type is Text(long).

When I goto permissions under group and Enable “Bypass group access control” the fields return as expected but obviously I don’t want leave this open.

ios – Bypass Hash Check on Filesystem Ramdisk When Restoring iPhone from IPSW

So basically my situation is as follows:

Recently a family member gave me a used iPhone XR they received third hand, and asked me to unlock it for them. The phone is stuck in iCloud Activation Lock purgatory, and they do not know the original owner (again, third hand purchase), so turning to Apple for help is simply not an option.

I decided to try a process I heard about a while back to bypass this, specifically modifying an IPSW file to remove the from the main filesystem, so that on first boot the user would be dropped to the home screen rather than forced to go through the activation process.

While I have managed to get fairly far along in this process I am encountering a hard-stop issue. I have successfully extracted the target IPSW (iOS Ver: 14.4.2, Buildtrain: AzulD, Build Number: 18D70, Device Class: n104ap). Two important factors to note are:

1.) That this particular IPSW is a Research/CustomerUpgrade build, so the DFU, Firmware, InstalledKernelCache, RestoreSEP, and SEP packages are marked as Research builds. The rest of the components are production/release versions.

2.) This IPSW package has an unencrypted Filesystem Ramdisk by default, and uses hash/checksum verification during restore, rather than decryption keys, as it’s main method of tamper-protection.

With these in mind, I have managed to mount and modify the Filesystem Ramdisk (038-96459-065.dmg) using a shadow copy via hdiutil. I then merged the shadow copy into the original using hdiutil, and recompressed the IPSW using macOS’s built in Archive Utility.

This process yields an IPSW package that successfully passes iTunes/Finder Nonce verification and begins to install, however though it installs the first two Ramdisks and the firmwares successfully, when it attempts to install the Filesystem Ramdisk (modified 038-96459-065.dmg) it fails a checksum verification and aborts install halfway through, yielding this error:

The iPhone “iPhone” could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (14). 065B.000E

The iPhone then becomes stuck on the Apple screen with the progress bar showing 1/3rd full. Attempting to enter Recovery mode fails and will not allow restoring of the phone. The error code 14 represents an unspecified interruption part way through the install, and placing the phone in DFU mode and restoring from an unmodified IPSW works fine. This is what has me convinced it is failing a checksum verification on the modified Ramdisk.

My question: is there a known (or theoretical) way to bypass the checksum verification on the System image? Perhaps by modification of the BuildManifest.plist? Replacing the contents of Firmware/038.96459-065.dmg.root_hash with an accurate hash for the modified Ramdisk (Assuming the hashing method for these files is known and publicly available)? Spoofing the CRC-32 checksum on the .dmg itself? Replacing the contents of the relevant .mtree file for the .dmg with a newly generated string?

NOTE: All suggestions are welcome, but please do not respond if you have no relevant/specific information to share.

A message to the moderators: I apologize if this question is, technically speaking, not on the correct forum, however I am unaware of another one which would be more relevant to the project at hand. If you feel this question does not belong here, please simply refer me to a place that would better suit this question, and I will migrate it myself. There is no need to lock or migrate this thread on my behalf, I am not that stubborn.

dnd 5e – (5e) Are there any magic items that allow a user to bypass fire resistance with a magical weapon?

A bit of a specific request I know, but for an upcoming battle my DM is throwing at us, I’ll be using a magical weapon that deals fire damage and we know the creature has fire resistance. So I was wondering if there were any options to ignore the opponent’s fire resistance. I know of the Elemental Bane spell already, but if there were any other spells that had this effect as well that would be helpful to know as well.
