Facebook has relesed their new launcher, Home, available on the Google Play Store. However, it’s currently US-only, and only available on a bunch of devices (for reasons known only to Facebook.)
But if you’re from another part of the world, and want to try it on your device, and it’s not supported yet? Don’t worry. Here’s a small tutorial to help you out. Although, you’ll need to be rooted for it to work.
1) First of all, get the Facebook Home .apk for here
2) Then, go into /system using a file manager of your choice (I used Root Explorer from the Play Store). You’ll find a build.prop text file there.
3) We have to edit the following values –
ro.product.model=”Some unique string”
ro.product.name= “Some unique string”
ro.product.device=”Some unique string”
Replace your device’s unique string with “GT-I9300” (without quotes)
4) Reboot. Install the Facebook Home APK and open it. Boom. That’s it. All done.
As it happens, you don’t need Facebook Home to use Chat Heads. It comes with the Messenger app update. So, if you only want Chat Heads, just update Messenger!
#Update1: This method is cumbersome and time-consuming so please follow the this article instead

Many of us prefer to spend as little as humanly possible on app purchases. And how often have we found ourselves pulling our hair whilst running apps on a tethered Jailbreak. The only alternative other than buying apps is to acquire them legally for no cost, and however unreal this may sound, it is possible.
Follow this link to find out more or continue reading (Open link from iDevice)
Press on the link above and you’ll be directed to freemyapps.com, a site where you download sponsored apps by developers and in return earn credits from which you can obtain gift codes for that app you always wanted. The list of payout apps include- Tweetbot, Angry Birds, Cut the Rope, Fruit ninja and etc. at surprisingly low rates. The only catch is that an UDID registration is reqd. Which means you can only earn so much credits for one iDevice by downloading apps(also creds aren’t transferable). But fear not, you can share the word and for every app downloaded from a device that you reffered, you’ll get 50 extra creds. So what are you waiting for? Get jumpin’ :)
Note: 1-For all ye noobs out there, dont worry it is not illegal, or even disputed and is harmless for to your device.
2- You must have an US appstore account, if you dont make one.
CHEERS, and a happy new year.
Siri,One of the Best features of the new iPhone 4S.For those who don’t know ; Siri is a personal Assassitant which comes with the new 4S.Ever Since thet feature was tried and tested by Dev(s).It has been No.1 on all of their ‘To-Do’ lists to Port it across older devices.There have been a few Videos/Demonstrations showing Siri on an iPhone 4 or 3Gs and any further information on that is not known.But,Yesterday the People at iF0rce released a tweak via their repo ie. http://apt.if0rce.com which enables Siri Dictation on the iPhone 4,iPhone 3GS and the iPod Touch 4 (Only if the device is on iOS5 or iOS 5.0.1).
All you need to do to get Siri Dictation on your Supported deivce is Add the Repo mentioned above and Search for ‘Siri0us’ and install it.Then just open up an app and press the Siri button on the keyboard.
Note: The developer has noted a bug that some may run into when trying to install. If your iDevice keeps respringing, do not restore! Use a SSH tool to remove the/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AssistantServices.framework file.
Now We can FINALLY get half of the Siri experience thanks to a jailbreak tweak by a developer called Eric Day.Also,Siri dictation for your iOS 5 devices. No iPhone 4S keys/files required.
Dictate-Away Then :D
#Update 1 : Some Excessive Battery Drain issues have been reported to us.So,Install only if you really want it.

Are you lazy? Too lazy to open thw calculator app to count some plus, minus or multiplication? Now you will only have to swipe your finger to the right!
QuickMath is a FREE tweak from the BigBoss repo in Cydia that allows you to count plus, minus and multiplication in the spotlight search of iOS.
It is very simple to use. Just type for example: 2+2 or 5-2 or 2*5 or whatever and then press search. The final result will be given in the same bar after you’ve pressed search! Here are some screenshots.
The worst part about owning an iPad is how you have to alternate between your computer and your iPad just to start or pause torrents. Well, not any more. Now with the release of iTransmission, you can easily downloads torrent directly to your iDevice. It can be found in our repo at myirepository.cz.cc.
Transmission works like most other torrent clients. Just find a torrent on the net, copy the link to the
.torrent file or copy its magnet link, and hit the plus sign in iTransmission to add it. It will download the files to your phone, which you can then retrieve later with something like iFile, which you can get from Cydia. And, just like desktop BitTorrent clients, you can set speed limits and automatically forward ports. You can also download fromWi-Fi only, if you don’t want to go over your 3G data limit.
All said, this is one of the best apps as it is extremely useful and handy, so I’d advise everybody to use it as a replacement for conventional desktop torrent clients :) Thanks to Mike Chen ( Who Made this app ) He Totally Rocks !
