What happens when you press the "history erase" button?

Maybe something good, maybe something bad ...

But you wont know ...

BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT GOING TO PRESS IT, ARE YOU!?

comment web.xml is missing and <failOnMissingWebXml> is set to true
If you are using a in Servlet 3.0+ environment and have any implementation of a Interface WebApplicationInitializer this answer is the correct approach. It's the sensible way to solve this problem - no point adding the web.xml after taking steps to live without it!

comment Should I use AbstractAnnotationConfigDispatcherServletInitializer or WebApplicationInitializer configure Spring 4.0 mvc + Security application?
I would agree with jny. The AbstractAnnotationConfigDispatcherServletInitializer would be the best place to start as it guides you into adding the basic required functionality from the outset. That said, you could still achieve the same results with WebApplicationInitializer but you would have to figure out and add the basics yourself.

I think I am probably victim of this cryptsetup bug: cryptsetup freezes shutdown procedure

Presumably you are trying to avoid the use of the web.xml and move your web app config into annotated java, rather than xml?

comment Spring MVC Spring Security and Error Handling
Remember to disable (or never enable) configureDefaultServletHandling in whatever class you have that extends WebMvcConfigurerAdapter or an exception will never be thrown for unmapped URLs, and hence can never be caught by this method. Technically I suppose all URLs are effectively mapped by /** if you do enable this setting.

comment Why is it acceptable to supply devices without root capabilities?
@DanHulme Dan, you are absolutely right, old bean. I have shamelessly polluted a technically based forum with an opinion based question, contrary to all civilized rules of engagement. My penance shall be 10x "Dawn of the Angry" by Morbid Angel (It's not really a penance, I know :-)

@DanHulme Downvote OK by me. Thanks to the power of advanced crypto all the thousands of questions on this site about "how to root ... whatever" can soon be all marked as rhetorical too.

The very term "jailbreak" implies the removal of one's freedom has been inflicted by default. But, of course, it's all for your own good. Trust in the benevolent dictatorship of the gobal megacorp. Surprised at the down-votes considering the main codebase of Android is licensed as an open source project.

@Izzy Well, they would have already accepted the disclaimer during the process of getting root access ...
