iPhone 3G Passcode workaround

19 May

Just a random post about the iPhone passcode workaround.  Though, it probably isn’t what most people are looking for, it will allow you to use your phone again.  Simply turn the device off, hold the home key, and plug it into your computer.  Keep holding the home key until screen shows a USB Sync cable with the iTunes logo.  Release the home key, and iTunes will ask you to restore.  This will erase all of your information on it.  But it will be working again. 

The reason I’m post this is because I have yet to read this anywhere as a method for getting around the passcode.

Enjoy,

Sprint Hero 2.1 Update has been officially released

19 May

That’s right, it is finally out.  Now the question stands, will it be as great as many of us have hoped?  Though Sprint has been holding out on us for months to “fix bugs”, flipz from geekfor.me has already picked out many bugs in the new RUU that he used for his custom build of the rom.  So, here is a question for those of you who have already upgraded to flipz version, will you take the risk of upgrading to the official signed upgrade, where no root may exist for quite a while?  Those of you who bought an iPod 3g when they first came out, remember how long it took before anyone could get the jailbreak untethered.  Personally, I’m not going to upgrade to the official until it is ripped apart by the modding community.

As many of you have probably noticed though, the version number (2.27.651.5)  for the official release on the Sprint website, is the same as the leaked version, that flipz already has in his new fresh rom 2.1.1.  So if you already have the 2.1.1 from flipz, dont update.  But if you haven’t rooted, and dont feel like it for some personal reason, then grab the update, and tell us what you think.

This update includes the following:

• Upgraded OS to Android 2.1 Éclair
• Enhancements to Sense UI
• Enhanced corporate email support
• Includes a variety of minor bug fixes (many more are fixed, and will probably be fixed my flipz way before Sprint or Google get to it)

So Sprint and Google, why is that these few people can make and update your messed up roms, with no training from Sprint or Google, and no paycheck?  And it takes you months to do anything?  Something better be coming in the near future that will blow us all away.

51 States of America

16 May

After the earthquake in Haiti, the government had decided, in order to get troops and other public safety organizations as well as funding for rebuilding homes and businesses, to make Haiti a state.  This happened at 4:53, Tuesday, May 11th, according to Time Magazine.  A state hasn’t been added to our country since Hawaii on August 21, 1959.  So who knows what will happen now.  Maybe this will be better for our economy, maybe not.  I believe that it is almost impossible to tell at this time because of our current status of the economy.

One more update for Sprint Hero 2.1

14 May

As many of you already know, the Samsung Moment 2.1 update has been released this morning.  Bring it into your nearest Sprint Store or Radio Shack and they’ll update it free of charge.  The Hero 2.1 though, is still being held, now because of a disagreement of  between Sprint and Android, Sprint wanting to update via USB, and Android wanting to update OTA (over-the-air).  So it will be postponed until one of them budges.  But hey, at least we know now that its out and ready.  I’ll update once I know a little more.

Just got done moving

13 May

After working since 9 this morning, I finally got done moving to hernando, ms.  But, see this makes it all so much better!  Time for some quick online gaming!  Also, the scanner feed will now only cover DeSoto County.  But I will have Senatobia back up later once I get my antenna up.  So just bare with me for now.

iTunes Media Keys Mapper Update v1.5

12 May

iTunes MKM update 1.5 has been released.  This is just a small update that will show what you are currently listening to each time the track changes for just a few seconds.  A little popup balloon will appear in the system tray, out of your way, and does not require any interaction.  Just thought this would be nice since it seems iTunes doesn’t do it for you anyways.  If anyone has any ideas or suggestions on what else I should add, just comment!

Enjoy,
