Windows God Mode

0

There’s a hidden setting in Windows that allows you to do pretty much anything, but it’s a hidden feature. This option doesn’t give you everything available in the system, but it does give you a very large list of configurable options all in one place. To gain access to this function, here’s what you need to do…

Fix MMS

Sometimes, after you root or flash a custom ROM on your phone/tablet/phablet, you might have trouble sending and/or receiving MMS messages. This includes pictures, videos, recordings, really anything that isn’t just standard text. You’ll know you have trouble if you send a picture and instead of sending you just get a spinning processing icon on your message and it never sends, or if you try to receive an MMS message you’ll just have a download button on the message; when you try to download the message it flickers and then reloads the download button again.

WiFi Cracking

Your Wi-Fi network is your conveniently wireless gateway to the internet, and since you’re not keen on sharing your connection with any old hooligan who happens to be walking past your home, you secure your network with a password, right? Knowing, as you might, how easy it is to crack a WEP password, you probably secure your network using the more bulletproof WPA security protocol. (more…)

PRL Update on Rooted HTC Hero

It’s been a couple of months now since I rooted my HTC Hero and I gotta say it’s been one of the best things I did for my phone. It works almost flawlessly (randomly drops GPS and sometimes restarts but that’s not a big problem). It reacts to what I tell it to do, it makes calls when I want it to, it’s just a hell of a lot better than using that damned original OS that came with it. So my new endeavor is to now update the PRL on my phone (Preferred Roaming List) so that I can get the most out of the tower signals as possible. Unfortunately, the CM7 mod doesn’t have the ability to update the PRL, so does that mean I’m at a loss?

 

Nope, and here’s how…

Rooting an HTC Hero (US)

When Sprint initially announced their partnership with Google and their first Android powered phone, I was super happy. This was the phone to get, this was the phone to move to! Yeah……..2 months after the release of the HTC Hero, Sprint released the 4G Evo and dropped all development on the Hero. It wasn’t until after 6 or so months that the first update for the Hero came out followed by Sprints official announcement to stop supporting it.

For anyone that has an HTC Hero, you’ll soon learn why this is the greatest phone you’ll love to hate. The more you use it, the more it eats itself up. By that I mean that it degrades the battery, the response of the OS becomes more and more sluggish, and it generally makes you want to throw it across the room. With Sprint offering no help for it other than the official statement of “Power off and back on”, what do we do?

Enter CyanogenMod….and here’s how to bring new life to your Hero.

Ventrilo Music Bot

Ventrilo is a chat program that is used by many online gamers to talk to each other. There are many uses for Ventrilo, but the primary remains to chat with people. One of the subjects between people who use this program is how to stream music to others in the channel. I’ve searched the net and compiled a listing of the two best ways (well, three if you count the very low-tech way). Hit the button to find out more info.

Google Android Lockout By-Pass

0

I recently had someone ask me how to get past the Android’s Pattern Pin. The problem is that there are random times when your phone could just “Poof!” in-validate the pattern pin sequence and lock you out of the phone. If this happens, you immediately lose access to your phone. Sure, you can enter the @google username and password, but most of the time it doesn’t accept; even if you try it on gmail.com and you know for sure you have the correct info.

If this ever happens to you, here’s three ways to go about bypassing that problem. The first solution is a simple user/pass bypass to fake your way through it. The second is a more drastic way of factory-reset and you do lose everything on your phone. The third is a debug way IF you had USB Debugging turned on.

See how after the jump.

Virtumonde
This guide is under construction and thus, the info is very quick and not-at-all-flashy.

Threat: High

Description
Virtumonde is a root kit trojan. By definition it installs itself into your computer and changes certain system files to always re-enable itself no matter what you do. One of those files is the system beep (audio file). Among other things, it burries itself inside the system restore, multiple edits in the system registry, and random files in the /windows/system32 folder.
