Install Google Wallet On Your Galaxy Nexus

So as a lot of you know, Google Wallet has not been officially released to the Galaxy Nexus devices. A lot of you probably want to install it because Google is giving you a free $10 debit card when you sign up right now. Lucky for you guys, some hackers managed to compile the application into and APK which you can easily install on your phone. I just installed it on mine and it seems to work fine, I had no issues yet! I haven't tried to make a payment yet, but shouldn't be a problem. If it does, well, I'll look like a complete idiot in public. XD

So first of all, make sure your Galaxy Nexus phone (GSM/CDMA) is on ICS 4.0.2 and make sure you are in the US. Just go to Settings >> About Phone to check the firmware version. Also make sure you haven't installed any previous version of the Google Wallet app. If you did, go see the tutorial on the XDA forums, I can't help you. If you are not on ICS 4.0.2, update it. If you need help, check out my tutorial here.

Now go ahead and get the APK from the XDA forums here. You will need to enable non-market apps in your settings (Settings >> Security >> Unknown sources). Copy the APK into your phone, and use Installer or something else to install the APK onto your phone. Install it like you would with any other APK.

Finish the registration process and it should work fine, you should get a free $10 debit card from Google. I didn't get to test out paying with the app yet, so... Tell me how it goes! I will try it out the next chance I get.

If you are wondering how to update to the official release of Google Wallet when it comes out after you install this, please read my theory in this article here.

Update 12-01-2012: Google pays for my dinner. More info here.

Why You Shouldn't Host a Siri Proxy

As you know, Siri has been legally ported to older iOS devices, but requires you to use a Siri proxy. (If you don't know about it, read about it here.) This is because using Siri on an older iOS device still required proper iPhone 4S authorization tokens which is only available on an iPhone 4S. Some people have already started hosting Siri proxies, and you might be considering on doing the same thing. Right now, I will tell you why you should not.

You might think you are helping out the jailbreak community, but you should know this. If you make people donate to you, you might make some money for a little while, but remember that most of these proxies are shut down with in an hour by Apple. It is very easy for Apple to detect heavy traffic from a certain device and for them to shut you down is very easy too. After that, you will loose the ability to use Siri yourself too, and I doubt complaining to Apple will do anything. So really, you are just harming yourself. Also, not to mention how much data you would be using trying to host a server... I wouldn't recommend you to host it unless you have a way to manage how many users are using your proxy. If you were thinking about hosting, you should think again. That is all I have to say.

How to Manually Update your GSM Galaxy Nexus to 4.0.2

Google have already released ICS 4.0.2 for GSM Galaxy Nexus devices, but haven't pushed the update onto most of the devices. The updates comes with some bug fixes including fixes for the volume issues. Most of you guys, like me, are probably too impatient to wait for the update. There is a method of manually updating your GSM device to ICS 4.0.2 and today I will teach you how.

Disclaimer: You follow the instructions I have provided here at your own risk. The author of this article can not be held responsible for any damages or problems you get into. The event of something going wrong is highly unlikely but possible.

Other Dangers: This tutorial is written for the GSM Galaxy Nexus only. If you own the CDMA version, you might be able to use this tutorial with slight modifications, but is not recommended. It is also recommended you back up your data before you update. Even though the update will not erase anything, if something goes wrong, you may loose your data. 

This tutorial is recommended for people who are familiar with command line and fastboot commands. If you are not, it's not a big deal, but you will be doing some commands to get your phone updated.

The process requires the Android SDK, if you don't have it, get it now here.

First step is to make sure your bootloader is unlocked. If it is not, unlock it. The update will not erase anything on your phone, but unlocking your bootloader will perform a complete factory reset on your phone. If you have an unlocked bootloader, skip down, if not follow these instructions.
  1. Back up all your data. Your contacts, apps, and everything else will all be erased during the unlocking process. Why? Go as Google, they did it.
  2. Turn off your phone.
  3. Boot into bootloader mode (Volume Up + Volume Down + Power).
  4. Open Command Prompt as Admin.
  5. Navigate to the folder of your fastboot command. 
    • If you installed the SDK in the default directory, type this.
    • cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools
    • If you did not install it in the default directory, I think this is still very self explanatory.
  6. Now type in fastboot oem unlock
  7. Finish the process on your phone and wait for it to reboot.
  8. Copy back in your data and you are done. Your bootloader is unlocked now.

Now on to the instructions on how to manually update. First of all, if you have root access, use your File Explorer on your phone and navigate to /system. Now open up build.prop as text. Check and make sure the value for ro.product.name is yakju and ro.product.device is maguro. (If you have CDMA, these values are different, you are on your own.) Make sure those values are that! Not a variation! Now go here to get the correct Factory Image for your phone.

Now extract the files and copy them to the folder where your fastboot command is. Here are the 4 files you should get:
  • bootloader-maguro-primekk15.img
  • flash-all.sh
  • image-yakju-icl53f.zip
  • radio-maguro-i9250xxkk6.img
Now make sure USB debugging is enabled in your phone. Go to Settings >> Applications >> Development >> USB debugging to check or enable. Disable any antivirus you got.

Now turn off your phone and boot it into bootloader mode (like above in the unlocking instuctions). Open up command prompt as Admin and navigate to fastboot folder (like in the unlocking instructions above). Type fastboot devices and make sure your computer detects the device. (If you have rooted your device before, there should be no problem) Now run the following commands (copy paste one by one or type in yourself):
fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-maguro-primekk15.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader
(Wait till the Boot loader is Rebooted)
fastboot flash radio radio-maguro-i9250xxkk6.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader
Wait till the Boot loader is Rebooted)
fastboot update image-yakju-icl53f.zip
After you have done that, your Command Prompt window should look similar to the one below (click for full resolution).


Now to to Settings >> About Phone and it should say 4.0.2! If it does, you are done! Good job. I already did this myself. Did not meet any problems, so you shouldn't either. If you get any issues, leave me a comment below and I will try to help you.

After you update, you will loose root. If you used the "Manual Method" provided here, boot your device up with the insecured boot image (fastboot boot boot.img). DO NOT FLASH IT! Just boot using it. At this point, it will look like your phone is bricked. It is not. It will be stuck on the Google screen with an unlock symbol. This is perfectly normal. Check if adb can see your device (adb devices).

If adb sees your device, type the following:
  1. adb root
  2. adb remount
  3. adb push su /system/bin
  4. adb shell chmod 06755 /system/bin/su
  5. adb reboot
After your phone reboots, it should be rooted. Remember, DO NOT FLASH THE BOOT IMAGE! If you do, you are screwed.

Siri Legally Ported to Older iOS Devices

The well known and respected developer chpwn has legally ported and released Siri to older iOS devices like the iPod touch 4th gen, 3rd gen, the iPhone 4/3G, and the 1st generation iPad. This hack is available to anyone with a jailbroken iOS 5 device. You don't need to add any new repositories because the hack, Spire, is available for download from the BigBoss repository.

When getting the app, make sure you are connected to Wifi as it will legally retrieve about 100mb of data from Apple's servers. Also, after installation, you will have to configure a Siri proxy server to "host" for your device as using Siri requires you to have correct iPhone 4S authorization tokens.

Most of you probably don't have access to a Siri proxy server but many has already started publicly sharing Siri proxy servers online (like this one here). Not sure how long this will last as a lot of these proxy servers are getting terminated in under an hour because obviously Apple can detect the heavy traffic from one device. It is a good idea to just go for a free proxy, not the paid ones that ask for a donation as a lot of these turn out to be scams! Like I said, most of them gets terminated in less than an hour. Don't waste your money. The paying method is a good idea though, if it's expensive, because if the internet traffic is evenly distributed on lot's of devices, Apple will not be able to do much.

Anyways, installing this app will require a reboot, so make sure you have a computer handy if you are on a tethered jailbreak. Also, this app is incompatible with the Semi-tether hack.

Got My Replacement Nano! Update on iPod Nano Recall.

The phone in the background is a GSM Galaxy Nexus. :)

The blog post everyone has been waiting for. I'm sorry for the delay, I actually missed the Fedex man on the first delivery attempt because I was out at Lake Tahoe. Well anyways, I did get my replacement nano and this is why I'm doing a blog post. As you know on my last blog post, after checking my new serial number with Apple's data base, it says it's a 6th generation iPod nano. Well not technically true... See the following 2 photos. (Click on them for full resolution.)


As you can see, it is clearly a refurbished silver 6th generation iPod nano.  Now on some forums, I've seen people say they would rather have kept their old iPod nano because well the new touch screen ones also got battery problems. The touch screen uses too much power, so the battery doesn't last as long... But considering how your 1st generation is like 5 years old, this battery probably will do better. XD



Anyways, I have some complaints... The new nano came with no instructions at all. What am I suppose to do? Charge it first? Connect it to a computer? Turn on the power? What? I have no clue. They gave no instructions at all... All the text they gave us is below (in the screenshot).


Well I guess Apple will be keeping the nanos we sent in for parts... I thought so, they wouldn't have such a big stock of 1st generations on hand. :P Oh well, I would have preferred maybe a red one or a blue one, but silver is nice too. There is also a built FM radio, but they don't give you headphones for it. If you have an iPod touch or iPhone, the headphones for that will work with your new nano.

Untethered 5.0.1 Jailbreak for non-A5 Devices Released


The jailbreak everyone has been waiting for is finally out. Pod2G has finished the jailbreak and handed it off to the iPhone devteam and the Chronic devteam. For all of you who are new to jailbreaking, an untethered jailbreak is what people want because it doesn't require you to "rejailbreak" every time you reboot your device. Up till now, we only had tethered jailbreaks which was a pain when you ran out of power or just needed to reboot, there was a semi-tether hack, but it wasn't as good as the real thing.

This new jailbreak is only for the following devices on iOS 5.0.1. The owners of the new A5 devices have to wait.
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4-CDMA
  • iPad 1
  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
If you are still on iOS 5.0, you can safely update to 5.0.1. The SHSH window is still open for 5.0.1 If you unlock via ultrasn0w or gevey, make sure you only get to 5.0.1 via a custom IPSW! Use the latest redsn0w to jailbreak your device after you have upgraded to 5.0.1. If you are already on a tethered jailbreak for 5.0.1, you have to choices.
  • Run redsn0w 0.9.10 over your current jailbreak (deselect “Install Cydia” if you do that).
  • Install the Cydia package prepared by the chronic devteam. 
The patches are the same regardless of which you choose.

Some of you are probably using a hybrid 5.0/5.0.1 configuration. If you do, do not install this untether over that setup! You will probably get into a reboot cycle. Do a sync and restore to 5.0.1 then jailbreak using redsn0w.

Replacement Nano Shipped! Update on the iPod Nano Recall.


After the weeks of wait, Apple has started shipping back the refurbished iPod nanos, and a lot of owners of the recalled iPod nano are receiving emails informing them of the tracking number. I still haven't received mine back yet, but after searching the serial number on Apple's support website, it says it is a 6th generation iPod nano with a picture of the new touch screen nano. Possible that Mashable was wrong? Maybe, but according to the information we have right now, it is possible Apple is actually giving us one of the new models. So, all it is now is a waiting game...

I Got a Galaxy Nexus

 Click the photos to view full resolution.

Anyways, just here to tell you guys I got the new Galaxy Nexus phone. I haven't used it yet because I want to find maybe a screen protector or maybe a protective case for it so I don't scratch the surface of the screen or camera. So yeah!

The device is capable of supporting Google Wallet, also has a built in 5 MP camera and lot's of other stuff. :) It also has a 1.2 GHz dual processor which means more gaming and multitasking. Sadly, the device does not have a built-in microSD slot, but does have a huge internal storage of 16GB or 32GB. Mine is the 16GB version. Also the phone has the capability to shoot full 1080p video.

Charlie Sheen Accidently Tweets Phone Number


While trying to direct message Justin Bieber "310-954-7277 Call me bro.", Charlie Sheen accidentally tweeted that to the public. Immediately after, a witness said, Charlie's phone started ringing like crazy and received over 1800 texts in minutes from fans all over the world. The tweet was swiftly taken down, but Charlie was like, "Guess I need a new phone!". It was also said Charlie actually answered a few calls as a joke saying things like "Ray's Pizza" or "Winning". Anyways, he did get a new phone number and if you try to call the old number he tweeted, you will only get an invalid number message.

SDXC Cards in your EOS 7D


Hello guys, do you hate the costly prices of CF cards? Do you want to get a lot more storage and speed with the new SDXC cards? Worry no more! Today's post is a camera hack, I will help you use your SDXC card on your Canon EOS 7D, 5D, 1D, or other similar cameras!

Disclaimer: You follow these tips and instructions at your own risk! The author of the blog is not responsible for any damages that may result from these instructions. These tips and instructions are provided for educational and informative purposes only.   

First of all here are the three things you will need:
  1. A Canon EOS 7D, 5D, 1D, or other similar camera.
  2. A CF to SD adapter. (I recommend this one, it is also the one I'm showing in the image above.)
  3. A SDXC Card. (The one in the picture above is the Lexar Professional 64GB SDXC.)
Alright now, first of all, insert the SDXC card into your adapter then put it into your camera. Right now, it will tell you the card needs to be reformatted in order to be used. I know the SD card website tells you not to do it, but do it anyways. This will format your SDXC card into FAT32 file system. The original file system is exFAT. So you might be wondering if this is safe right? See the following reasons:
  1. Your write and read speed is untouched.
  2. Same amount of storage (as for me 64GB).
  3. Only difference now is you will be limited to 4GB per file (This is a filesystem limit, can't be fixed.). Photos you take will never be that big, don't worry.
  4. You can always format it back into exFAT on a computer if you ever need to store something over 4GB on it.
There you go, after you format the card, your camera should read it. You have a very large storage on your camera now! Hope you enjoy it. Also some reviews for the products I've shown above.

The adapter I'm using, I think is the best, but this is the first one I've bought. I would recommend it. Unlike other adapters I saw online, this one has no speed issues, and is compatible with SDXC cards. Which is great. On my EOS 7D, I had no problems with shooting videos or taking RAWs with this one. It works as if I had a real CF card in there. Only one complaint as with all adapters like this, you have to take the adapter out of your camera first, before you can take out the SD card. Doesn't affect the quality though. The other thing I noticed after using it a bit (I tried to do some high speed photography), after 10 shots, I took out the adapter and it felt warm to the touch, but no speed problem. So I'm guessing there could be a small chance with over heating, but  I would still recommend it if you plan on having a back up flash memory.

Now for the Lexar Professional 64GB SDXC, I have already tested this thing out on my camera. I can take over 1000 RAW + JPEG (High Quality) photos on my camera! No problem. Also the write and read speed is amazing. If you always shoot in RAW, I would totally recommend this.

Of course I do not use this adapter as my main storage. I also have an 8GB CF card, but with my RAW photo shooting, it will exhaust that memory card quick! So if you are like me who take a lot of photos, or do RAW, get these! It works great as a backup memory card and SD cards cost like 2/3 the price of CF cards and they work a lot faster.

Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 5 and 5.0.1


Although not released yet, it is very reassuring to know an untethered jailbreak will be released soon for iOS 5.0 and 5.0.1 devices. According to the makers of Greenp0ison, the Chronic Dev Team member pod2g has released a teaser video of the new untethered jailbreak! They have also claimed that this jailbreak will also work with 5.0.1 devices and they are yet to try it on the newer A5 devices. Cross your fingers guys, and hopefully it works!

An untethered jailbreak will be a lot more convenient for all of us because it doesn't require you to hook up your iOS device to a computer to reboot, and will have all the functionality unlike a semi-tethered boot.

Additionally, if you plan on downgrading to a custom iOS 5 version, it is good to know there is a way to do that too. You will need to back up APtickets and SHSH blobs with iFaith. This will allow you to downgrade later on just in case.

Tips on Winter Photography

Photo taken near Reno/Lake Tahoe in Nevada.

It is winter again, and you know what that means! Lot's of gift giving, shopping, and an extremely jolly time of the year. In some parts of the world there will be snow and lot's of it! It is the time of year where people go skiing, snowboarding, playing in the snow, and for photographers, snow photography! One issue a lot of photographers get into while taking pictures of snow is the "Greying Effect". See the photo below if you don't know what it is. The "Greying Effect" ruins a lot of photos, even for people who are not photographers! So now your question is probably how do I get my photos to look like the one above instead of the one below? In today's post I will offer you some tips on how to prevent the "Greying Effect" and some other tips on how to protect your camera equipment while you are out in such a cold environment.

The left show the "Greying Effect", the right shows how snow should look like.
Big difference right?

So why does the "Greying Effect" happen? To effectively teach you how to get rid of this problem, I will need to educate you on why it happens. So usually when you take a photo, your camera weighs in the different colors and light of the scene you try to take. When you try to do snow photography, most of the light coming into the camera will be white. So the problem actually happens here, when this much white light enters the camera, the camera will think you are trying to take a picture of an extremely over-exposed 18% grey object. So the camera tries to compensate it by lowering the exposure, hence making the snow grey! There are several ways to fix this problem.

Disclaimer: You follow these tips at your own risk! The author of the blog is not responsible for any damages that may result from these instructions. These tips are provided for educational and informative purposes only.  


Exposure Compensation
This might not be available to some of the more low end cameras, but is the most effective in preventing the greying effect. So first of all, you will need to put your camera into a mode where you are allowed to adjust the exposure compensation number. Then you will need to locate the option on your camera, usually marked with an icon that shows a black and white square with a + and - sign in it. Now increase the exposure compensation and take a shot, do this until the image looks satisfactory and the "Greying Effect" has disappeared. Generally you will have to increase the exposure compensation by +1 or +2 to compensate for the camera's under-exposure.

Beginner explanation on why this works: Since the "Greying Effect" is caused by your camera underexposing your image, by putting your exposure compensation at +1, this tells your camera, what ever exposure the sensor tells you to use, add 1 on top of it.

Custom White Balance
This method most accurately fixes the "Greying Effect" problem but will be a bit of a hassle to configure and will require you to buy an 18% Grey Card. Configuring the custom white balance will vary from camera to camera, so consult your camera's instruction manual for more information. Again, this method will most likely not be available for low end cameras (especially point-and-shoots). For the Canon EOS 7D you will first need to take a photo of your 18% Grey Card, then go into menu (2nd menu) and they go to Custom White Balance, select the photo you took, then configure your camera to use the new white balance. As I said, this method is probably not the most efficient method, but corrects the problem more accurately.

Beginner explanation on why this works: By taking a photo of an 18% Grey Card and then telling your camera to use that as the white balance, pretty much tells it what grey looks like. So now when it sees the white snow, it will know it's white instead of an overexposed grey object.

Open the Aperture
Another method, although I would not highly recommend it as this method will definitely put some blur on your image, is to use aperture priority (Av or A) or manual (M) and open up the aperture by 1-2 f-stops to compensate for the underexposure by letting in more light. This feature might not be available on some low end cameras.

Use a Snow Scene Mode
For a change, this feature may not be available on some of the high-end cameras (LOL). This method is very amateur-ish and not needed by professionals. Also, this method I do not highly recommend as it may overexpose some of your photos. You can do this by setting your camera to a "scene" mode specifically designed for snow. This may fix the "Greying Effect", but may also overexpose your photo, I recommend my first 2 methods.

Fixing Your Old Photos in Photoshop
Those are the methods for preventing the "Greying Effect". So now you are probably wondering, what do I do now with my old ruined photos? Throw them away? No need to fear, Photoshop will come to your rescue. Remember, use this method only as a last resort. To do this do the following:
  1. Open up the ruined photo in Photoshop.
  2. Now go to Layers >> New Adjustment Layer >> Levels...
  3. Press Okay on the pop up dialog.
  4. Click on the White Dropper (Same in image to select white point).
  5. Click around in your picture of where you think should be white. Experiment with this until the image looks satisfactory. 
  6. Now save it as a copy, I usually don't like to save over the original. 
    Protecting Your Camera and Equipment In Cold Climates
    Those are the tips for preventing the problem, now let's move onto how to protect your camera equipment in cold weather. Don't think this is easy, because it is not! One mistake can ruin your camera and lens! These tips are more targeted towards DSLR owners, not so much for you guys with a small point-and-shoot.
    1. First rule, I know it is easy to forget, but don't put your camera under your jacket in a cold climate. When moving your camera from a cold place to a warm place, or vice versa, condensation may gather on your lens (including the inside), and it may damage your equipment! When going from a cold place back to a warm place (like hotel), before you go back, make sure you take out your battery and memory card, then put your camera back in the bag. After you arrived at the hotel, leave your camera in your bag for at least 2 to 3 hours before you open it up. If you don't have a camera bag, use a Zip-lock bag. Make sure you take out your battery and memory card before you go back so you don't get tempted to open up your camera bag before the camera is allowed adequate time to warm up. The 2 to 3 hour rule usually works for people who are going to Alaska or place with similar climate. If you are going to Reno like me, 1 hour tops because it isn't as cold and your camera will warm up or cool down faster. 
    2. Warm up your battery. A warmer battery will work longer than a cold battery due to the chemical reactions (I think). So for professionals, some people will keep and extra battery in their pocket to warm it up, and then they will keep switching the batteries to get more life out of it. Make sure you don't keep change in the same pocket though, I seen a comment on another blog of a guy accidentally shorting out the battery and burning a hole in his pants...
    3. And as for tip number one, try not to use the heater in your car, just wear more clothes. I think I explained it pretty clearly in tip 1 why, so not going to do it again. Another way, put your camera in a cooler, so it stays the same temperature as when you put it in, then when you need to take a photo, you can just take it out of there. 
    4. If you are going to Alaska or a place of similar climate, try not to exhale onto your camera, your breath will instantly become a thin layer of frost!
    Well that's all the tips! I hope you have enjoyed the tips on winter photography. Please don't forget to share this article with your friends and leave a comment!

    Ac1dsn0w Beta 2 Jailbreak Released!

    Ac1dsn0w is a jailbreak made by Pwned Dev Team. Some of you may know, Beta 1 was taken down due to copyright issues with Apple. The Beta 1 version used a lot of Apple software and coding as Apple threatened to sue. Beta 2 is now released and Pwned Dev Team claims the new version does not use Apple coding and includes major improvements from Beta 1. The new version isn't much different from the current tethered jailbreaks like redsn0w and sn0wbreeze and you will be required to hook up your iOS device to a computer to reboot! It currently supports iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1. The tethered jailbreak will work with all iOS devices other than iPhone 4S.

    The most noticeable difference for the new jailbreak is probably the size (Only 15% of the size of Beta 1, probably due the the lack of Apple coding.), and the fact that it's got a show console feature which should be more accurate on what the jailbreak is doing.

    The Ac1dsn0w jailbreak is available for download here. The jailbreak is for Macs only.

    The reason I posted up a download link here is because the makers of the software claimed the pirated Apple coding has been removed. The owner of this blog does not support piracy. Please do not pirate Apple coding.

    AndroidLand, The First Official Android Store


    First the Apple Store, then comes the Microsoft Store, now the Android Store?! Yes, that is true! The lucky residents of Melbourne, Australia are lucky enough to get their own Android Store. This is the first Android Store in the world! The Australian network operator Telstra has been working closely with Google to get something like this opened. The newly opened Android Store is named AndroidLand.

    Inside Androidland, you will find a wide selection of phones (just like the Microsoft Stores) to play with, a huge Google Earth setup, and Angry Birds galore. Although the store looks a bit weird with all the Android-bots in there, it would definitely attract a lot of attention if one opened in the US. 

    I wonder how it got there...
