I should mention I only have MBAM because I like the visuals. It just looks too cool to get rid of.

Some significant changes, updated my configuration details to reflect this. Also running Android Q Beta 1. Beta 2.

4/9/2019 - Opted out of the Android Beta Program and reverted back to 9.0 Pie. I was experiencing a significant bug that prevented me from receiving texts. I'll wait for the stable version in August(?).

@dash Can I ask you how is your experience with Always On VPN? I used to have it set to keep my VPN on all the time but I noticed that when I am group text messaging and using MMS, the messages get routed all the way to where my VPN server is located and then have to find their way back. I have missed some important messages because of that so I had to turn my VPN off.
