[Tutorial] How to Bypass Mailbox for iPhone’s Waiting Period

mailbox-logo-big

So, lately this new email client (currently only supporting Gmail)  for the iPhone/iPod has been a huge topic for discussion in the tech community. Especially it’s ‘first-come, first-serve’ policy which some people are fine with but it irritates others. And we get that. You want to get your hands on the app too like everyone else is. So, what is this policy? Well, the developers for the app are sensible enough manage their servers properly because they know if they didn’t, they would crash and result in a bad review for the app. So, they limited the number of users allowed to use the app. Now, while we think this is smart and an intelligent way to monitor their users, it is also a ‘bad’ thing for people who want to get their hands on the app as soon as possible – for whatever reason.

Fortunately, there is a simple work-around for people with ‘jailbroken’ devices to get the app working. Let me guide you through the process.

Disclaimer: We are not responsible for any harm to your phone or email account. Also, we cannot assure this method to work when you try to use it as the developers might have just updated the app or their permission protocols.So, try this only if you really want to. 

Thing you need

  1. A jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch
  2. iFile installed from Cydia
  3. The Mailbox app installed on the phone (duh?)

Procedure

  •  Load Mailbox and get a place in line
  • Load iFile
  • Browse to var/mobile/Applications/ and look through all the weird named folders until you find Mailbox. Once you found it go to Mailbox/Library/Preferences/com.orchestra.v2.plist
  • Tap on com.orchestra.v2.plist and open it with the Text Viewer.
  • Scroll towards the end of the document and locate the following lines –

<key>orchestra.mailbox.did.ask.for.push.permission</key>
<true/>
<key>orchestra.velvet.room.allowed</key>
<false/>

  • Tap on Edit (upper left corner) and change the last line from false to true and save the file.
  • Make sure Mailbox for iPhone is not open (close it in the app switcher). Then, open up the app and sign in with Gmail.

#Update : This method no longer works. We’ll updated the post as soon as we find something that works.

We hope this helped. Let us know if it did by leaving a comment below!

[Tutorial] How To Install Windows 8 Pro For Free (100% working)

Disclaimer: First of all,this is only recommended for people who want try Windows 8 for before actually buying it.We call know that Windows 8 has some big issues with what developers can use on it and where they can use it i.e. dev. software only runs on x64.So,people should check out exactly what they want before they purchase it.That’s what we think..Please don not pirate Microsoft software just to save money.Microsoft has worked really hard on this project so respect that and use original software.

With that out of the way,let’s dig into the tutorial part of this article!

We’ve been using Windows 8 for quite some now and I must say,atleast ‘I’ and impressed.Yes,’impressed’ but not ‘blown away’.
There is no doubt that Windows 8 is gonna make a good tablet OS but that’s not what Microsoft is know for right? They’re known for their desktop OS i.e Windows.Now,agreed that they are adapting and trying to make a mark in this tablet and smartphone hungry world but to be honest,I loved Windows 7 and am a little disappointed that Windows 8 isn’t that big an upgrade (keeping only PCs in mind).

But hey! that still does not mean I’m not gonna install it? And I’m sure you wanna install it too.So,let’s get started with the things you’ll need while and before installing:

  • A compatible system (check the requirements here)
  • Windows 8 .iso file (only download the one you want)
  • Windows 8 Activator (will be used in the end) -> Download this and keep it ready on another USB or partition on your computer.
  • uTorrent (it’s used to download torrent files.You can use any other torrent client as well.) ->
  • WinRar (to unarchive the .tgz activator file) -> Download this on Windows 8 using IE.
  • A 4 GB or more USB drive or a single-layered DVD (I suggest using a DVD)
  • Basic knowledge of how one boots into a USB/DVD via your BIOS
  • 1-2 hours and loads of  patience

Once that’s sorted out,just follow along.

Installation

  1. Backup your data on your current OS.
  2. Use this tutorial to make a bootable USB/DVD for Windows 8 using the .iso you downloaded earlier.
  3. Insert the USB/DVD and reboot your system.
  4. Enter your BIOS settings/boot menu(i suggest getting into your boot menu).Since every BIOS has a different method of doing so,you can look up the hotkey for your specific BIOS/boot menu in the motherboard/laptop’s manual or use Google.Once,you are into your BIOS/boot menu,select USB for your USB drive or select DVD-ROM if you’re using a DVD.
  5. Once you do that,the Windows 8 installation will start and it’ll ask you for a CD key.Use this XKY4K-2NRWR-8F6P2-448RF-CRYQH. After that just follow installation wizard and make sue you read everything properly while doing so.Once,you’re at the ‘Windows update’ section,turn them OFF completely to avoid any issues later on.Also,make sure you select the right partition to install Windows 8 on to avoid any data loss.
  6. When the wizard finishes installing,it’ll reboot your system and boot it up into the Windows 8 setup wizard where it’ll ask for you to setup accounts and what not.It is pretty self-explanatory so you shouldn’t have any problem there.If you do,you can always contact us or comment below.
  7. After you’ve gone through with the account setup,your computer should restart and boot back into Windows 8.

Now,right now you’ll have a working Windows 8 OS but it’ll not be activated i.e. you wont be able to access the personalization section and also wont be able to install Microsoft Office 13.To rectify that,follow the instructions below or feel free to close your browser and enjoy Windows 8.But,why would anyone do that right?

Activation

  1. Open up the Activator you downloaded earlier using WinRar and extract it on your desktop.
  2. In the extracted files,run ‘Windows 8 Pro Final Activator.exe’ as admin and let it do it’s thing.
  3. Once that’t done,reboot your system.
  4. That’s it! Your Windows 8 copy should be activated and fully functional.

For Dual Booting with any other version of Windows

The procedure remains the same – Just follow the same instructions and the Windows 8 bootloader will handle the rest.

[Guide] How To Speed Up A Jailbroken iPhone/iPod or iPad

Tired of waiting for Apple to release the next iPhone to experience faster speeds? Luckily, there’s an app for that. Well, at least there is if you are using a jailbroken device.

Found under the BigBoss repo (You need not add it) is :

Speed Intensifier : It is a 2-part tweak that can speed up your iPhone’s performance by shortening or completely removing iOS animations. These transitional animations typically happen when you open a folder or window, and can really slow you down as you bounce between apps…

This tweak is similar to the FakeClockUp package , but there are some differences. This extension actually has 2 separate installs. One for your Settings.app and the other is a Winterboard add-on.

The tweak actually cancels all the animations that come preloaded on your iDevice. for e.g. The Jiggling Icons when you press and hold them, etc.

Both files can be found in the insanelyi.com repo. For folks who don’t have the source installed already, just navigate to your Manage tab in Cydia, select Sources, and add “http://repo.insanelyi.com.”

Once the new repository is installed, do a search for Speed Intensifier. You should see the app as well as the Speed Intensifier Addon. I recommend installing both of these, as the add-on compliments the main application quite well.

The add-on’s description states that it breaks the limitations that Apple imposes on the device to save your battery. It will make your iPhone’s processors operate as if it is plugged into the wall charging.

Speed Intensifier is adjustable from your Settings app, where you can change the speed of the tweak, as well as disable it. The add-on should show up in Winterboard as 3 options: SI Underclock, Si Speedup, and Si overclock!
