Antimalware service executable – High resource usage

I have seen lot of windows 10 PC’s that works fine and faster than some old Win 7, 8 Os’s in same hardware configurations. But still lot of people’s are prefer to use 7 or 8 because of lack of controllability in windows 10. when I say controllability I have seen 2 major problems with windows 10. first one is unstoppable updates. it’s good in some ways but sometimes it’s unbelievably annoying. even with some tricks it’s still will update and you can’t do nothing about it with certain situations. Second one is windows defender’s antimalware service executable process that eat half of your computer resources and led to slow your computer.

Here I’m explain simple trick that help to avoid antimalware service executable process hog your resources. In the Internet you could find many of solutions but those are involve with registry editing and some stuff. and even sometimes those are not works. at least none of them work for me. luckily installing virus guard could solve the problem. Solution is simple as that is.

Some peoples don’t like virus guard but, In windows 10 you must have virus guard or you have to work with windows defender. there are many anti-virus programs that free and paid, however I recommend lightweight free anti virus guard will do the job. anything will be better than resource hogging antimalware service executable process.

 

 

Samsung Galaxy G 955XU Firmware – Discussion – Development

UPDATE – In this thread I was failed to find firmware solution for 955XU device but instead I was able to replace motherboard from G-955-U successfully. you can read that post from here.–>  

This thread allocated to discussion or reports about G 955XU particular samsung galaxy s8+ LDU module. Since samsung doesn’t sell this units officially lot of peoples calming those devices are stolen. but I believe there are ways to legally own this device. however if someone got 955XU and tried to play with OS and now in trouble and looking for stock firmware, I cannot say I have a solution but I must say I’m in the same boat as you are.

Like I said I have flashed 955XU device with this firmware for root the device. And end up with security error and now I’m trying to revers it back to at least it’s original condition. unfortunately for 955XU model there are no free stock firmware in any known places. and there are no developments or supports available. I have look everywhere for weeks to find some help but no luck. In my research I have seen people like me ask 955XU firmware and such questions in threads like Xda but no one gets answers and lot of are banned or threads closed due to their policies.

So in this I want make place to share knowledge about 955XU , at least share my knowledge with among others.

 

 

 

Places I found that 955XU Stock firmware’s available ->

Easy-firmwear – https://easy-firmware.com/index.php?a=browse&b=file-info&id=87351

GSM-Files – http://www.gsm-file.com/files/smg955xu-9161

Combine Files – http://combinefile.com/home/browse/category/id/8028/SM_G955XU_Firmware/

 

There are more places on the web, however I have purchased firmwear on Combinefiles.com but didn’t work. that firmware only have BL and CSC, I’ll post result below with different flash tries. 

 

According to some threads in the Internet  LDU units of old models (S7,6) firmware and it’s normal firmware’s only different is modem.bin file and some other bin files. in S8+ firmwares we can see modem.bin file in CSC file. And other bin files locations are unknown. 

G955X RDU have it’s arrival G955F and some claimed these devices firmwares are compatible to each other. But there are no source about 955XU arrival. Also 955X and 955F are Exynos variant, So if there are 955XU arrival exist it has to be one of flowing module.

955UNot Worked

955U1 – Not Worked

955A – Waiting for test

955P – Waiting for test

955T- Waiting for test

955V – Waiting for test

955R4 – Waiting for test

955W – Waiting for test

9550 – snapdragon variant but it’s storage 128GB (this couldn’t be one – memory mapping has to be different I suppose )

 

Since 955XU is snapdragon variant BOOT LOCKER is still cannot be unlocked. which means no custom roms.

there is now TWRP is available for Galaxy S8 and S8+ (Snapdragon) But didn’t work for me.

uSATA to SATA converter – Use uSATA Hard drive with SATA port

Serial ATA is one of most widely used bus interface for storage devices for years. Within its technology SATA 3.2 can achieve 16Gbit/s data transfer rate. However in this post I concern about use uSATA drive with normal SATA 2 or SATA 3 port.

uSATA or also known as a micro SATA usually can be seen in Laptop hard drives. In SATA interface there are 2 connectors that use for transfer DATA and POWER separately. In general term there is no physical difference between DATA connector with between SATA and Micro SATA (uSATA). It can be connect to regular SATA cable and supported by SATA 2 or 3 ports in motherboard. But the power connector cannot be connect to the standard one.

In this post I’m going to use my uSATA SSD hard drive with ordinary PC. First we must understand power segments with standard connector and uSATA power connector.

  <Source – Wikipedia>

 

So let’s begin

Step 1 – Identify the pins and voltages for uSATA connector.

According to chart +3.3 V for pin 1,2 , +5 V for pin 5,6 , Ground or 0V for pin 3,4 and 7,8,9 are unknown.

However in this case I have laptop that with uSATA port. So I have measure the voltages while working and find out for this specific SSD HDD only use +3.3 V for it’s power requirement.

Step 2 – Connect to the power as required.

For the power we can use standard SATA power connector supply wires. in power supply Orange wires carries +3.3 V, Red wires +5 V , Yellow wires +12 V and Black wires Ground. however in some causes there are no 3.3 V in some SATA power connectors. when that happens we have to bypass wire to ATX power supply connector and get power from there.

 In first cable doesn’t include orange wire. which means no 3.3V supply

In my case I only need 3.3V and ground , and I’m going to get that power from bypass ATX connector.

Then I connect + 3.3 V and Ground cables to uSATA HDD by solder wires to socket.

Step 3 – Connect Data cable and do the final check ups for short circuits then good to go for test.

I have successfully connected and fully tested my uSATA Samsung SSD Hard drive (64Gb) to my PC without any error. I used both SATA 3 and SATA 2 ports for test and both works. In summery I only needed 3.3 V because of my device requirement specify for that. if anyone willing to following this method I’m warning, another device may have deferent requirement of power. try with your own risk.

* UPDATE

After using this HDD for few Days, It stopped working suddenly. However I could recover it successfully and here is the post about it.
