[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 Root Galaxy Nexus GT-I9250 on Android 4.1 Jellybean

NoteYou need to have your bootloader unlocked and fastboot setup on your computer to make this work.And ofcourse,you need to be on android 4.1 Jellybean.

We at T101 finally managed to find a solution that worked, and the familiar root permission prompt finally popped up. If you lost root access after upgrading to Jellybean or maybe you wanna root your new Galaxy Nexus running JellyBean,then continue reading (this was tested on a GSM Galaxy Nexus I9250, but should work on other variants as well.We are not responsible if ‘you’ screw things up).

Here’s a guide that’ll work for sure.

  1. Download your favorite recovery, say ClockworkMod Touch.
  2. Download JB-SuperSU.zip from this link.
  3. While booted into Android, push JB-SuperSU.zip to your Galaxy Nexus’s /sdcard using your computer, or download it straight from the device.You could also use adb to push the file (ADVANCED USERS ONLY)
  4. Reboot into the bootloader buy powering down and booting up while holding both volume buttons and power until the bootloader comes up.It’ll look like this .
  5. Flash the custom recovery by issuing this command from your computer:
    fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-touch-5.8.0.2-maguro.img (or whatever the recovery name is that you downloaded in step 1)Note: For some reason I can’t get the recovery to stick anymore – upon reboot, the Nexus reverts back to its stock recovery. If someone knows how to fix this, please leave a comment in this post.
    Renaming /system/recovery-from-boot.p after obtaining root did the trick – you have to remount /system as rw first, of course.
  6. Now that you have the custom recovery installed, scroll down to Recovery mode in the bootloader menu using the volume down button and press the Power button to enter it.
  7. Select Install zip from sdcard, choose zip from sdcard, select JB-SuperSU.zip that you pushed in step 3.
  8. Reboot your phone.
  9. Dance around the room.

[Tutorial] How to Install Siri on an iPhone,iPod or iPad for free using (100% working)

When Apple launched the iPhone 4S in October of 2011, one of the most talked about and probably its headline feature was the inclusion of the Siri intelligent assistant software which attempted to make life easier by being able to accomplish tasks given to it through a simple voice command. When invoked by the user, Siri is ready and able to take spoken orders which can range from setting meetings up in the calendar, checking the location of friends and family or even pulling up a weather forecast for most locations in the world.Siri can do unimaginable things and it does it bloddy fricken well!

So,When Apple did release Siri,the whole world wanted it.But,sadly only the ‘New iPhone 4S’ got it! Developers started working on ports immediately.But,It was really hard to get it working without violating any Apple Inc. Copyright.

Soon enough,A group of guys namely @MrAjsTech @leftyfl1p and @ericlewis came up with this wonderful idea of getting Siri to work using Google servers and ‘NO 4S KEYS’.This made the fact to violating Apple servers totally redundant.

And Just day before yesterday,i4siri was officially released.

Here’s a Tutorial on how you can easily install it in just minutes –

Note: You will obviously need to jailbreak your device to install this tweak (Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 with Redsn0w or Absinthe depending on what device you have.This currently does not work with iOS 5.1 as Spire isn’t compatible yet)

Step 1: Open up Cydia and add a source (http://i4siri.com/aspecialplace) and Install ‘i4Siri’ (For iPhone/iPod Touch) or ‘i4Siri iPad Install’ (For iPads). This’ll take time as it downloads an additional 100mb while installing a building caches,So be patient.

Step 2: After installation, open up the device Settings application and head to ‘General >> Siri‘ and make sure the toggle is set to ‘On‘.

Step 3: Go to Settings –>> General —>> And Set ‘Siri’ to ‘On’.

Step 4 : Then,Head back to the root of the Settings menu and select ‘Spire‘.

Step 5: In the Spire settings menu, populate the proxy URL field with‘https://i4sirifree.mooo.com/’.

Step 6: Open up Mobile Safari and head to ‘http://i4siri.com/installcertificate.html

Step 7: Install the certificate. Activate Siri and make a request.

Step 8: Et Voila! Keep the Home button pressed for a few seconds and Siri should pop up.

[Tutorial] How to Root a Samsung Stratosphere 4G

The recently released Samsung Stratosphere 4G has been rooted by the guys over at Rootzwizi. The device, which is similar to the original Galaxy S, was released on the 13th and is the first device in Verizon’s lineup of 4G capable devices to feature a QWERTY keypad.This guide will provide a step-by-step method to root your device, however ifyou’re unfamiliar with rooting, it’s advised that you read up on the subject first (check out the Rootzwiki link above) as we can’t be held responsible for any problems you may encounter. Following the advice of the developer we’ll be using Heimdall rather than ODIN due to compatibility,  however if you’re familiar with ODIN you’re free to use that.

Before we begin, this DOES void your warranty, so you need to be aware of that. However, if you take a look on the link above, one of the comments suggests how to unroot, which would (in theory) remove all traces that you ever rooted, and therefore bring your warranty back.

Step 1. First things first, make sure you have the Android SDK installed along with the Android Debug Bridge prior to installation. If you haven’t you can grab the installer from here.

Step 2. Download Heimdall from their website and extract the downloaded .zip. I recommend you get the latest version (which was 1.3.1 as of this post).

Step 3. Okay, so now we can get going; put your Samsung Stratosphere into what’s known as Download Mode.If you’re unfamiliar with how to do this, simply turn your device off, then then hold the Volume Down key and turn it back on. Make sure to keep holding the key until you see “Download Mode Do Not Turn Off Target”.

Step 4. At this point, you need to connect your phone to your computer via USB. Windows users will have to install the drivers (you can do this by going into the extracted folder from Step 2 and going into/Drivers/zagig.exe. Using this, just click on “Install Driver” when asked and then disconnect + reconnect your device. Note that you may be required to do a PC reboot.

Step 5. You now need to download these two files: Stratosphere Root.zip and Stock Kernel.zip. You then need to extract their contents to the same folder you extracted Heimdall to earlier.

Step 6. Depending on your system, open either Command Prompt or Terminal and navigate to the folder you extracted earlier and type:

heimdall detect

If your device is connected, type the following:

heimdall flash –kernel root-zImage

This will flash a custom kernel to your device, and upon reboot you should see a yellow warning symbol. Don’t worry about that at the moment. (Make sure to read on after the end of the post in reference to this)

Step 7. Now on your device you need to enable USB Debugging, which you can do by going to Settings > Applications > Development.

Step 8. Make sure that your device is still connected to your computer by typing:

adb devices

and you should hopefully see something along the lines of:

List of devices attached
3235A3CA0D8400EC                device

And afterwards you need to remount the file system by typing:

adb remount

and again, you should see the following:

remount succeeded

Step 9. The required files now need to be transferred to the device and their permissions set accordingly, so enter the following:

adb push su /system/bin
adb push busybox /system/bin
adb push Superuser.apk /system/app
adb shell chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
adb shell chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox

Step 10. And now your device should be perfectly rooted; you may want to download something like ROM manager from the Market to check.

For those of you who want to get rid of the yellow triangle, my proposed suggestion is that you just reflash the Stock Kernel you downloaded earlier using the same method as above. I haven’t tried this, but if my other Android devices are anything to go by, it should work just fine.
