Nostalgia.. Beijing Trip '08

It sure feels good looking back at these pictures, really brings back the good times i had during the Beijing trip last December...

This picture was taken as i exited the Temple Of Heaven in Beijing. It was winter he was writing Chinese Caligraphy on the floor using plain water. As the water settled it would freeze, leaving behind this beatiful glowing effect when the sun shines.

Goodbye platform security, Hello possibilities!

Hei fellow readers, I apologise for the lack of updates on this blog the past few months. I’m still trying to cope with college life. Sure, college is fun and all but the sheer workload is immense! With that i’d just like to say that this blog shall be what it started to be – just as a hobby and leisure.

Back to topic, the latest “unhackable” firmwares of Nokia FP1 phones has just been hacked again!

For those of you who do not know, hacking your FP1 device grants you access to all of your phones folders, yes even those that Nokia does not want you snooping around. With this access the possibilities for customising your phone is endless! Of course there are other, er, ‘benefits’ you could gain from hacking your firmware but i shall not touch on that point at the moment.

Over the past month Nokia released v31 for most Nseries devices, with no other initiative than to plug the platform security’s loophole and block users from hacking their phone. Well of course many users did not upgrade, and instead waited for the Einstein’s of the Symbian world to come up with a solution. The wait is now over, and the hackers have beaten Nokia once again!

I’ve gone through the simplest hacking method available and it’s still rather complicated and since there’s a fairly good chance of the average joe screwing up his phone i shall not post it here yet.

Be watch this space, i’ll post the solution as soon as i feel it’s simple enough for everyone to enjoy! If you can’t wait, just google around and i’m sure the solution will pop up.

Till next time! Cheers.

Back from Beijing

Brrrr, Beijing was cold, and I mean freakin cold. I mean it was so cold my N95's LED screen started to freeze and lag when I took it out for too long. Around -20*c i think, add a little wind to that and you have yourself some serious winter conditions.

Regardless of the weather Beijing was a beautiful place to be. The architecture,the landscape, the people...ahh.. but not the food perhaps, Chinese food was far from par with our Malaysian food. Anyway, more about that later, starting college tomorrow so there's lots to get ready for.

Beijing was a great opportunity for me to test out the D60 and get some great shots with the camera.
Here's the first one I took on the morning a arrived at KLIA airport, yup it was a great was to kick-start my trip! :-)

Happy New Year everyone, have a great 2009!
