HTC One M9

I am sure many of you have seen or even owned a M7 or M8 and know that it is one premium device made of a nice metal unibody build. The HTC One M9 isnt any different but this time HTC added a two tone look to it that i kind of like. The back still has the silver brushed metal but the edges have a nice looking gold metal shine. I think this just adds to the premium look and feel of the M9. Other big changes to note about the M9 is that HTC finally got rid of there back ultra pixel camera and now has a 20mp back camera which i think will be a very big improvement. For those of you that love the ultra pixels, you are also in luck since HTC just moved that camera to the front. Lets talk speed this bad boy will be rocking a Snapdragon 810 octa core CPU based on the 64-bit architecture. The M9 will also have 3GB of ram giving this new HTC device some real processing power and of course it will still have those amazing boomsound speakers we all love. I cant wait to get my hands on this device. make sure you subscribe to my youtube channel for full coverage of the M9 along with any hacking rooting and modding i will be doing on it.

Debloater Tool for Android

Share if the site was helpful

Debloater by Gatesjunior

This is one amazing Debloater Tool for Android devices on all android version from Lollipop to Gingerbread

How to disable or block Bloatware on your android device

Background:
So after many times of going back and forth blocking / disabling apps on my devices through the command line and or shell, I decided to write a program to make this all much easier for myself. Well, after I got it all finally running and doing what I wanted, for each particular device I own, I decided that his was a pretty nice program and I wanted to share it with the community. After all, this community is where I started and learned a lot of the things I know today. So why not share with my family of Android enthusiasts.

Requirements:
The program requires that your manufacturer USB drivers are installed for your specific device as well as the following:
• Windows Operating System
• USB Debugging turned on for your device
• Root or KitKat running on your phone
• Run as administrator, both Windows 7 and Windows 8 (Right click on shortcut, go to properties and then click compatibility tab and at the bottom choose Run as Administrator)

What does it do?:
• Block / Disable applications on your device
• UnBlock / Enable applications on your device
• Allow UnBlock / Enable all applications at once on your device
• Allows filtering of the displayed packages for quicker decision making

So, essentially what it does is this. It will disable / block any system and third party application on your device with ease and allow you to enable / unblock the application just as easy. It also reads everything, real-time, directly from your device, so that there are no messy batch files, scripts and txt files, etc. that you have to maintain and keep track of for every device you own. I mean let’s be honest, most of us own more than one device. Phones, tablets, etc. Who wants to maintain all those scripts and files for every device? The other nice thing that this program does is allow you to, at a granular level, control what is blocked/disabled and what is not. There are quite a few scripts and things like this available in the community that give everyone a start on what to disable/block, but who wants to scour through these scripts and decide what they want or don’t want with something someone else put together. The other nice feature of the program is it will display information for you about your device. Such as Model number, Serial number and battery status. As well as whether or not your device is rooted or not.

What audience of device does it support?:
This program supports many devices. It will support any device running KitKat, whether rooted or not. That’s right, if your running KitKat, your device does not need to be rooted. If you’re running anything other than KitKat, your device does need to be rooted. As long as these requirements are met the program will run. The program will also auto-detect whether or not your device is supported. So if you are not sure, plug it in and let the program tell you. If your device is not supported, it will put up a message saying as much and close the program.

Program Functionality:
The first thing you need to make sure of is that USB debugging is turned on for your device. The video at the end of this OP is a must to watch. It will describe this process as well as allowing adb shell permissions.
So when you first connect your device you will need to wait for the program to detect your device and whether or not it is supported. Once this is established, usually within a couple of seconds, it will display a warning message to you reminding you to be careful with what you disable and block. Yes, it will allow you, if your device is supported, to disable/block even system dependent applications. This message will also include, if your device does not support block mode, a message indicating that block mode is not supported and that it will disable the applications. Here is a sample screenshot of this.

Click image for larger version</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <p>Name: message.png<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Views: 0<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Size: 32.2 KB<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> ID: 3107134

Once the program has initialized, and the warning message has been presented, it will put you into the main program screen itself which will look like the following.

Click image for larger version</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <p>Name: main.png<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Views: 0<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Size: 75.2 KB<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> ID: 3107129

From here the first thing you need to do is click the Read Phone Packages button on the upper left. This will initiate the process to start reading all of the applications on your device and then list them in a list in the window. It will also indicate to you what it detects as applications that are already disabled/blocked on your device by putting a checkmark in the box next to the application. It will look similar to this.

Click image for larger version</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <p>Name: main2.png<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Views: 0<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Size: 72.9 KB<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> ID: 3107130

As you can see it will tell you in the upper right how many applications it detects as blocked and not blocked. You will notice that on the bottom left it has an indicator that is labeled Synced. As you make changes to the device application listing this will turn red. In other words, it will indicate whether you have made changes to the device application listing since the last sync. Also, in the upper right there is a counter labeled Changed. This indicates the number of changes you have made to the device application listing since last sync.

Once you have made any changes to the device application listing an Apply button will show up in the upper left replacing the existing Read Phone Packages button, it will look like the following.

Click image for larger version</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <p>Name: main3.png<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Views: 0<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Size: 70.1 KB<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> ID: 3107131

Once you click the Apply button the existing changes you made to the device application listing will be applied to your device. Keep in mind that you can disable/block and enable/unblock applications all at the same timeand then apply those changes to your device. After you have applied the changes to your device a message will be displayed stating the status of your changes as seen below.

Click image for larger version</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <p>Name: main4.png<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Views: 0<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Size: 50.1 KB<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> ID: 3107132

Once the changes are applied to your phone you now just click the Read Phone Packages button again to reload the information from your phone and you will now notice that the application(s) you just made changes to will indicate as much in the refreshed listing. As seen below.

Click image for larger version</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <p>Name: main5.png<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Views: 0<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Size: 69.7 KB<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> ID: 3107133

You will notice that the particular application I asked it to disable/block has now a check mark next to it indicating that the device itself has disabled/blocked this application.

So now on to filtering. Lets say you want to limit the listing to specific items you are searching for within the package name. Like packages that contain “vzw” for Verizon. You will see below by clicking the filter checkbox and then typing in what I want to filter on and click apply, it will limit the list to your specific filter criteria.

Click image for larger version</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <p>Name: filter1.png<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Views: 0<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Size: 85.7 KB<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> ID: 3107196

And here is the results of our filter below.

Click image for larger version</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <p>Name: filter2.png<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Views: 0<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Size: 49.5 KB<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> ID: 3107197

From here I can make changes to the listing, by checking the box next to the packages or I can simply uncheck the filter checkbox and return back to the full listing unfiltered.

You can also enter multiple words in the filter separated by a space, so you could enter “vzw Samsung” as an example.

O.k., so far so good. Now let’s say that you want to enable/unblock all the applications on your device. Maybe you’re selling it or maybe you have an issue with it and you want your carrier to take a look at it. By clicking the Unblock All Packages button and then click Apply this will enable/unblock all applications on your device. As if it is back to factory with no changes made.

Well community people that is it. I hope you enjoy the program as much as I do and look forward to your feedback. Gatesjunior signing out…

Android 5.1 Rumors

Statue

Android 5.0 (Lollipop) isn’t even available for most Android phones yet, but Google may already be working on an update for the software.

A new version of Android called 5.1 is reportedly coming in February, according to the blog “Android Pit

The blog claims to have spoken with two “trusted sources” familiar with the situation.

Based on the reported list of new features coming in the update, it sounds like some minor improvements and bug fixes are coming.

One notable fix, for example, seems to be the addition of a silent mode to Lollipop.

When Android 5.0 was initially released in November, users complained about the lack of a “silent mode” for notifications. Rather, users can choose from three options when it comes to notifications: None, Priority, or All.

“None” keeps your phone entirely silent, which also means your screen doesn’t light up when you get a text or notification. “Priority” mode silences almost everything except for alarms, and only allows notifications from certain designated contacts to come through. And “All”, as you can imagine, just allows all notifications to come through normally with sound.

Here’s a list of features and bug fixes that will supposedly come with Android 5.1.

  • Silent mode added after missing on Android 5.0
  • General improvements in system stability
  • Improved RAM management
  • Fixes for sudden app closures
  • Improved battery management
  • Excessive consumption of network devices when used Wi-Fi fixed
  • Issues with wireless connections fixed
  • Problems with Okay Google function solved
  • Notifications problems solved
  • Some sound problems experience by certain devices fixed
  • Other improvements and changes
  • Changes in the Material Design color palette (after users complaints, possibly for a higher version though)

Keep Following closely as we will update you on any Android 5.1 rumors and News

LiveBoot App

Share if the site was helpful

[ROOT] LiveBoot

Live boot

 

LiveBoot is a boot animation that shows you logcat and dmesg outputs on-screen as they happen. Output configuration includes logcat categories, whether to show dmesg, and the amount of lines that should fit on your screen. For Pro users there’s also the option to make the output transparent and overlay the default boot animation.A feature is built-in to test your current configuration without rebooting. The lines shown in test mode may be limited and relatively static, this does not reflect exact boot time behavior as much as it just shows you that it works and how big the text will be.Note that LiveBoot will only show up after the data partition is mounted. If you need to enter a decryption key or pattern at boot, it will not show up until you have done so.RootThis app does not only require root, it requires specifically SuperSU version 2.40 or newer, due to how the boot-time code is launched.

Compatibility

Officially the app supports 4.3+ and newer, but really it is aimed at 5.0 firmwares. Regardless of 4.3, 4.4, or 5.0, the app may work on your device or it may not. I’ve gotten it to work on a bunch of my own devices on various firmwares, but not on all. Even if the test run functionality works, this does not necessarily mean it will actually work during boot. It usually does, but not always.

This does indeed also mean I cannot guarantee continued operation – even if it works for you today, it may fail your next firmware update. If that is an issue for you, then you should definitely not update to Pro.

The risk of bootloops is extremely low, but not completely non-existent. Should a bootloop occur, removing either the app’s APK or /system/su.d/0000liveboot through recovery should fix the problem.

The app writes to /system, as such your firmware must allow this. There is no recovery-based install option at this time.

Pro

There’s an in-app purchase to upgrade to Pro, which supports my developments, and unlocks the transparency option.

Of course, if you have one of the paid variants of the old live logcat or live dmesg boot animations from all those years ago installed, this will also enable Pro mode.

Like some of my other apps these days, if you don’t have Google Play but still managed to install the APK, this will also enable Pro mode.

Last but not least, if you simply don’t want to pay for it, there’s also a button to enable Pro mode.

Script

If /system/su.d/0000liveboot.script exists (chmod 0644, not 0700 like other files in /system/su.d/ !), this script will be run instead of logcat and dmesg, and its output will be shown in white (stdout) and red (stderr).

Discussion/support/etc

Please see the official app thread on XDA-Developers.com here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/apps-games/liveboot-t2976189

T-Mobile’s Latest Uncarrier Move: Data Stash!

Share if the site was helpful

Uncarrier 8.0 is the latest in a line of T-Mobile’s brand of trying to fix the wireless industry for all consumers, not just their own. CEO John Legere spoke with David Progue of Yahoo Tech today for this latest event, which you can find here.

Keeping in mind, that on T-Mobile’s tiered post-paid data if you run out of data you are never charged an overage; instead, you’d be slowed to lower speeds for the rest of the month.

This latest move, is rollover data! “Data Stash.” It seems as if you’re on a 2 GB for example, and use 1 GB in a month, the rest would rollover to your “data stash” of extra high-speed data so next month you’d essentially be on a 3GB plan, and so on and so on.

When you pay extra for data you should keep it! All Lines 3GB and above get Data Stash, only from @tmobile. Also 10GB free data to start.

T-Mobile will be giving 10 GB free for new customers in their “data stash.”

RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless File Wireless Filehub

RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless File Wireless Filehub / Portable Travel Router

Something i never used before is this RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless Filehub / Portable Travel Router  but theres so much more to it than just the title. It is probably the best investment I have made for ALL my mobile devices. I was on the fence about what wireless wifi storage to get Seagate, Kingston Wi-drive, Airstash and lots more but decided on the ravpower. Main reason was that it had a micro SD card slot and USB port to connect a multitude of different storage devices. And lets be honest, how many SD cards, microsd cards, portable hard drives and usb flash drives do we have laying around? There is soooo much potential with this product and some very nice surprises that I found out that makes this wifi disk a MUST have for all the tech geeks in us.

Bonus, it doubles up as external battery pack. 6,000mah may not be a lot but it does come in handy in those critical must have a charge situations. Specs:

Wireless wi-fi storage and external battery pack 6000mah
Micro SD card slot
USB slot

The size of the wifi disk is about the size of a small portable hard drive, fits perfect in the palm of your hand and thats perfect size in my opinion.

To connect to the device you must make a wifi connection to it. It is named “WiFiSD-158E” and the password is “11111111”. That is 8 ones BTW.

Performance:

I was able to pick up a wide array of storage media. SD card, microsd , Flash drives ranging from 4gb to 32gb with many different brands. It was able to power a Seagate portable hard drive no problem while a SD card was also in the sd card slot.

Many different devices were used to connect to the wifi disk: Nexus 7, Nexus 10, Ipad 4, Acer laptop, Coby Cryos android tablet, galaxy S3, Iphone 5 and a t-mobile S2.

It says that up to 5 devices can be connected to it.

I was able to play all sorts of video files from it, divx/xvid, avi, mp4, mkv, mov…..720p,1080p. It handled it like a champ.

I connected 5 devices and tried to stream a divx file all at the same time. It worked flawlessly, no stutters, no audio drops.
Now I dunno about HD 720p or 1080p files with 5 devices trying to stream from it. Will try more tests later.

You can access your connected storage via 3 different ways:

Now, you can use the recommended mobile apps mobile fun (android) and airstor (IOS) to connect to the device to see your connected storage options. They are nice clean simple apps. Reminds me of an “ES Explorer” type file explorer. Pretty fast, smooth and it simply just works. The one thing the APP is a must for is to make it a wifi hotspot. What that means is that you can configure it to connect to your regular home internet router so that when your device is connected to it; you can still have internet access. Basically it acts like a wireless bridge for your router. Once configured you don’t have to use the apps ever again.

You can even use your browser to go to “10.10.10.254” and connect via a web interface. The default username is “admin” and there is no password. You can configure it to have a password; which I did via a wizard tutorial. This is nice since you can connect your laptop to it and access the connected storage.

The last option was a little thing I figured out and was pleasantly surprised! The wifi disk can be accessed via ANY file explorer app that can make SAMBA/SMB connections! File explorers such as “ES Explorer” and “Solid Explorer” have this ability. I personally recommend solid explorer (more on that in a bit).

You just have to set it up

For solid explorer press the “jump” button, then “Network” and then “SMB/CIFS” button. Jump>Network>SMB/CIFS
Now press the plus sign button at the top right. It will cause a popup that you will need to fill in the appropriate info.

Display name: can be left blank
Computer name or ip address: enter 10.10.10.254
Authentication method: can set as “Log in as guess” if you did not use the web interface to make a pass word. If you did make a password set it as “store encrypted password”
Username: admin
password: whatever password you made via the web interface

Now you should be able use the file explorer to navigate the connected storage options:

SDCARD-Volume1 = SD card slot
USBDisk-Volume1 = USB port connected storage

Now you don’t need an extra app to use the wifi disk. Use the file explorer you love and know!

Solid Explorer is my recommendation because it has the two pane option when in landscape mode. With the two panel mode, you can navigate to the “SD card” with pane 1 and then navigate to the “usb port” with pane 2. This will allow you to transfer files between the “sd card” and the “usb port” storage seamlessly and easily! There was a step by step guide on amazon how to transfer files between two attached storage options on the wifi disk, but this makes it sooooo much easier!

Build Quality: Seems solid, not too flimsy but quite light. Nice colored LED’s that aren’t too bright.

Gripes about it:

Only comes in white; no black option. It sticks out like a sore thumb next to all my other devices.
Does not come with a wall charger; but will use any usb charger which in my opinion are VERY minor.

If you would like to pick on up you can get it for about $50.00 from Amazon HERE
