[Tutorial] How To Install Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8 On Windows 7 (Using VMWare)

It’s finally here,guys ; the all new OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.With more than 200 new features,this operating system is definitely an upgrade to Lion which was overall sluggish and buggy.But,there’s a problem – to run this OS,you first need to buy a mac which will cost you a fortune especially if you’re a teenager with no (son’t worry,you’re not the only one).Although,there is surely a way to get this beast (pun intended) running on your windows machine which surely costs less.

Now,again you surely need a well-off computer to run this.We recommend atleast an i3 processor clocked at anything above 2.0 Ghz (No confirmation regarding AMD machines yet,but you’re free to try it out yourself and let us know).Anything below that,I suggest you check out our Lion or Snow Leopard tutorials.With all that out of the way,let’s talk about what all you’ll need to run this.

[Tutorial] How To Enable The Facebook Timeline NOW

 

Whilst it’s rather creepy that Facebook has essentially been your biographer during your time on the world’s largest social network, the common human trait of curiosity will undoubtedly take hold of many who will find themselves nostalgically trawling through old conversations, photos and statuses.

Although the feature has been announced, it is not yet available to the public – only developers. If you think you can entertain the idea of reading the most recent extract of your life story, well, at least your Facebook life story (the two don’t necessarily always correlate), then there is a way you can do so right now.

The process isn’t particularly painstaking, although it will require you to follow the instructions carefully. Before we get started, there are a few things that you should heed:

  • It’s still in development (hence the developer-only access), so don’t expect this to necessarily run as smoothly as FarmVille.
  • You will be the only person able to see your timeline (unless you adjust this rule), but it will automatically be available to the prying eyes on your Friends lists within a couple of days.
  • If you login on a different machine, timeline is disabled, although it can be retrieved (once you have completed the steps in the guide below) by following this link: http://www.facebook.com/YOURUSERNAMEHERE?sk=timeline
  • For one of the steps, you will need a “verified” Facebook account (linked to a credit card or phone number), so make sure you’re indeed verified before you decide to continue.

NOW,Facebook Said that they’ll enable this for everyone soon after the keynote but as of today ie 25/11/11 It has still not been implemented and I’m guessing that’s due to some bugs they found.

But,There’s a Workaround Found by the guys at TechCrunch,which can be used to enable this killer feature RIGHT NOW.

Enabling Timeline

Step 1: Log in to Facebook.

Step 2: You will need to enable developer mode if you haven’t already. Simply type “Developer” in the search box and click on the top result.

Step 3: Go to the developer app, which can be found here should Facebook not automatically redirect you.

Step 4: Create a new app (don’t fret, nobody will be able to see it), and give it a name and namespace (no CAPS allowed with the namespace).

Step 5: Once that’s done, click on the “Get Started using open graph” under the “Open Graph” header.

Step 6: You will then be asked to create a test action for your app, like “read” a “book”, or as I personally opted for, “row” a “boat”.

Step 7: Next, you’ll be met with a config page of your selected action. Navigate through that page and the next three pages of settings.

Step 8: Once you have gone through the last page and hit “Save and Finish”, after a couple of minutes, an invite to try Timeline should appear at the top of your homescreen.

Click it, and you will be met with a page which seemingly covers every nook and cranny of your Facebook life since the day you joined.

[Tutorial] How To Enable Android-Style Auto-Correction Keyboard On An iDevice

 

Ever seen the Android keyboard corrections list? As in the little list of words which appears above the keyboard when typing something? Well apparently Apple likes this idea, and has built it into their firmware files, but it’s not enabled to the public yet. There are many possible reasons for this; maybe it’s buggy, or it may be due to possible copyright seeing as it’s almost exactly the same as the one that Android uses. But if you feel as though you want to enable this (it’s pretty cool to use), then you can follow this guide to enable it on your iDevice (written guide after the break):

How to enable using iFile or via SSH (Jailbreak required):

Step 1: Connect to your device via SSH or open up iFile.

Step 2: Browse to the folder /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/ and open up the file com.apple.keyboard.plist. If you’re using iFile make sure to open it up in the Text Viewer. SSH users may need to copy the file to their PC before editing.

Step 3: Underneath the only entry in the file, you need to add the following entry:

<key>KeyboardAutocorrectionLists</key>
<string>YES</string>

Step 4: Now make sure to save the file, overwriting the original, then just close iFile or your SSH connection.

Step 5: Now just respring or restart your device and you’re good to go! The list should appear above the keyboard in all applications!

Note: Please note that this method isn’t as “permanent” as with the backup option, and that restoring your device will remove the keyboard.

How to enable using iBackupBot (No Jailbreak required):

Step 1: Download iBackupBot for PC or Mac.

Step 2: Backup your iDevice in iTunes and then open up iBackupBot after having done so.

Step 3: Click on your latest backup folder in the left hand column, and then on the right side, search down the list for the file marked Library/Preferences/com.apple.keyboard.plist.

Step 4: Double click it to open it up and underneath the only entry, you want to add the following entry:

<key>KeyboardAutocorrectionLists</key>
<string>YES</string>

Step 5: Make sure to save the file and then close the editor.

Step 6: Now, on the top bar, look for the icon showing a blue arrow pointing into an iPhone. Click it to restore the backup to your device. Hover over the button to check you have the correct one.

Step 7: Now just wait for your device to restart and you’re good to go! The list should appear above the keyboard in all applications!

Note: Please note that this method adds it into your backup files, so you’ll have to manually remove it from your backup files to remove the list. Restoring won’t necessarily remove it, unless you don’t restore from backup.

[Tutorial] How to Install Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich On Nexus S

GOOD NEWS for Google Nexus S owners,there is a team of developers out there working on getting a port of the new Android OS over to your device. If you’re one of the brave, let’s get you started on getting this thing set up!

Be aware that this isn’t an official release, in fact it is an SDK port, so it is bound to have some problems. The following are a list of bugs:

  • 3G(for some)
  • Data
  • NFC
  • Panorama Mode
  • Camera will force close for the 1st time
Procedure :

Step 1: Backup everything on the storage (SD card) of your phone. Plug it in to your computer and mount it as a drive. Copy everything off into a folder on your computer. You will lose everything during the next step.

Step 2: For those of you new (and even old) to rooting your phone, I am going to choose the simplest way for you to go about this. The good guys over at XDA Developers Forums have created a a batch file, which is a file that executes a list of commands, that will handle rooting your phone. Its simple, but it requires Windows XP/Vista/7.

  • Download the current stable version here.
  • Extract the files to a folder on your desktop.
  • Connect your phone to your PC and install one of the two supplied drivers.
  • You will choose either 32-bit or 64-bit and that depends on what your PC is. If you are unsure, choose the 64-bit installer first.
  • Make sure you have USB debugging turned off.
  • Execute the run.bat file as Administrator and follow the instructions.

One you are finished and you had no errors, your phone will have the following:

  • Your phone will now have an unlocked bootloader.
  • Your phone will now have Clockwork Mod Recovery installed (this is most important).
  • Your phone will now be rooted.

Step 3:

  • Now you will want to download the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM from here.
  • Copy the .ZIP to the root of your internal space on the phone.
  • Reboot into recovery mode by powering off your device completely then hold Power + Volume Up at the same time while powering back up.
  • One inside Clockwork Mod Recovery, choose ‘wipe data/factory reset’.
  • Then choose ‘install zip from sdcard’.
  • Select ‘choose zip from sdcard’.
  • Toggle down to the zip file and hit your power button.
  • You’ll confirm the install and let it do its thing.

Step 4: Enjoy your new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich powered Nexus S

Here’s a video demonstrating ICS on the Nexus S :
