iPhone Jailbreak upgrade madness (1013)

I tried to upgrade my iPhone to 4.2.1 after it was jailbroken by Greenpois0n!

It refused the upgrade and then forced me to restore. I tried to restore and got unknown error 1013. I tried all the tips on the Apple page but nothing helped.

So I booted a notebook into Windows 7 and tried the restore from there.. NOTE: I usually only use Mac OS X and Ubuntu at home.

The restore worked on Windows when it had failed over and over again on Mac OS X.

Go figure ??? I thought I'd post the info here. I will have to re-jailbreak my iPhone but at least it works again.

NOTE: If it happens to you, don't do this, just google the error and you will find a work around! I should have google and I would have saved a lot of time!

Python, Extract Facebook Friends Email Addresses

I've never written this kind of script before and so I found it quite interesting.

This is a Python script that will connect to Facebook and download your friend's Email addresses and Phone numbers (if shared of course)

The script was written by Ruel and he talks about it here on his web page: ruel.me/

You can download the script from github:

iPhone Jailbreak, change root and mobile passwords

If you jailbreak your iPhone then you must change root's and user moblie's passwords.

I'm posting this story because I did not see this warning when I jailbroke ;-)

Having said that, I didn't and ended up with the ikee worm.

What was happening is that I could not ssh into my iPhone. whenever I tried I got the error:

ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

So I Googled it and found this link:

At the end of the day what had happened is that because I had not changed the passwords, the ikee worm was, amongst other things, removing my /usr/sbin/sshd daemon

So be warned, change the passwords!

These procedures worked for me: (I didn't use mobile terminal, I used ssh on the iMac)

I removed the worm using ideas from these procedures:

You may also want to disable ssh (using SBSettings) when you don't need sshd.

Does your flight have Wifi?

From haswifi.com/

 

We need to be connected all the time... even if that time happens to be at 30,000 feet. We're tired of being disappointed the plane we booked tickets for isn't wireless internet equipped and we hope you are too. With your help, we hope to put an end to that feeling by showing which flights are wireless-internet capable -- before buying your next ticket. We do this by asking flyers like you to Tell Us whether or not your last flight was internet capable.

I've not tried it but is sounds like the ticket ;-)

Et Les Belges!

Funny

Dans une caserne belge, l'adjudant rassemble les conscrits et hurle:

Les Wallons à gauche et les Flamands à droite!

Un grand remue-ménage s'ensuit.

Quand la poussière est dissipée, l'adjudant constate qu'il reste trois arabes et un noir au milieu de la cour, serrés les uns contre les autres.

L'un d'eux lève le doigt et demande: Et nous, les Belges, où allons-nous ????

Do you want to know more about Belgium?

This is a video about Belgium which is probably not as funny as it was intended.
Or perhaps it was never intended to be funny.

 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ceg6NQKHd70&feature=player_embedded

A short animated film about the Belgian political structure.

The text was written by Marcel Sel, a Belgian writer, author of Walen Buiten, a best-seller on the

«Belgian Crisis».

The music was specifically composed by Laurent Aglat for the film, and Emma Dornan's beautiful
voice gave the commentary its magical tone.

The film was directed by Jerome de Gerlache.

http://picasaweb.google.com/jerry.rocteur/Salmon

Mix together and let cook for 3 or 4 minutesDon't overcook or burn or let anything stick
Add some milk and corn flour How much milk and corn flour depends on how much
onion and salmon 
You're trying to make a sauce which is not runny but not hard either, you'll get the feel for it.
You can add cayenne or red pepper or even black pepper if you want it a bit spicy


Don't over do it because it is not intended to be very spicy otherwise you'll lose the
taste of the rest.
Taste and add salt to your liking.
Cook your tagliatelle or spaghetti
Add sauce and spread smoked salmon.

NOTE: It's not saghetti sauce so you don't have to make a huge amount of sauce.
