Final Jailbreak for iOS 7

April 10, 2014

A few months ago evad3rs launched a iOS 7 jailbreak that supports iOS 7.0-7.0.6 be aware the latest firmware released by Apple is iOS 7.1 which is not supported by the jailbreak and there is no ETA on when one might be available so Do Not Update if you want to keep your jailbreak.  Evasi0n jailbreak is available here at Evasi0n.com For devices running 6.1.3 - 6.1.5 use p0sixspwn directly if you are on 6.1.6 then use redsn0w to install p0sizpwn.  For more options go here to see the full list of the most recent jailbreak tools http://jailbrea.kr/.  Be Aware that many people and developers have been complaining that the most recent release of Evas0n was poorly  made and contains bugs and unclean code so be careful when jailbreaking if you use Evasi0n. Make sure you backup everything just in case.

Making one attribute equal to another

February 22, 2014

Only a few people are going to understand this. Only a few people are going to understand why its important. The code I am going to go over basically make one attribute equal to the the value of another attribute for instance. If I had the following code <a href=""><img src="mypic.jpg"></a> I could take the src value from the img and put it where the href is. Ok so the code below, when the user clicks the img in this class make a variable equal to the src value of the image the user clicked. So you click on an image it takes that images src attribute and makes it equal to d... d in this case is a variable. It also takes its alt tag and makes it equal to c. Then it wraps that image on question with a link. Lastly it adds an href to the link with the value of d then it adds the attribute rel with the value of lightbox then it adds a title to the link with the value of c. Confusing I know. This code is practical for someone who uses lightbox. But why is it cool to you, you can use $(this).wrap($..... to wrap any code you want around anything, for example with this code below it likes pictures automatically to themselves. Then you could add attributes to theses links automatically. Any questions leave them in the comments and ill be sure to answer them. And the letter j after $ again just means it runs in no conflict mode which is needed to work if you use a CMS that is build using jquery or JavaScript I think.    

$j(document).ready(function () {
    $j(".yourclass img").click(function () {
        var d = $j(this).attr("src"),
            c = $j(this).attr("alt");
        $j(this).wrap($j("<a>", {}));
        $j(".yourclass a").attr("href", d);
        $j(".yourclass a").attr("rel", "lightbox");
        $j(".yourclass a").attr("title", c)
    })
});

Am I done?

How does my blog look, I want it to be simple and basic. It has a few cool features like lightbox 2 . Is there anything else I could add to my blog. Whats your opinion comment below. I got all my colors the way I want them, I think all the buttons work, I can add some cool content, the search bar works. Let me know because I think I'm done working on the code :)

Linux Live USB Creator

January 31, 2014

I just finished testing this tool called Linux Live USB Creator and its pretty awesome. What the tool does is gives the user a very easy visual installation process and it does not effect any files on your computer. This makes the process very easy usually you would have to format a flash drive and install the software onto it then reboot and locate your key that tells your computer to boot of the flash drive and then if you want to get back to your main OS then you have to reboot. This tool installs everything to the flash drive and it installs a emulator or virtual pc to run from the usb. So you basically run this program and click start and done a window pops up with the version of linux you want running inside of it and if you want to uninstall it just delete the folder on your flash drive. Its so easy and so fun to tryout a bunch of different versions of linux. If your interested take a look at the projects website and see the facts for your self. And I have tested the software it causes no damage to your computer even if you mess up the instructions.

Disk Tools Parted Magic

January 31, 2014

This is my first post in the linux category. It's very difficult to find things to post about in the linux world. This tool I'm going to be talking about would probably fit better in like a general category because the tool applies to any operating system. But since it's a linux based img here I go. Parted Magic is a linux tool that is used during the boot of the computer similar to installing a new operating system or running ubuntu etc. Parted Magic is my favorite tool, it can create complex partitions which is why I love it. Windows partitioning tool will only let you make so many partitions but Parted Magic can make a lot. A partition is a piece of your hard drive a dedicated, segregated, allocated space for installing things like operating systems. For instance one of my computers has a lot of partitions, one for Windows XP, one for Windows Vista , one for Windows 7 and lastly one for Windows 8. Now when the computer turns on it sees all these partitions and asks which one you would like to use to boot up and you can pick anyone. Partitions are just allocated space that can have things installed to it or saved to it. If your computer turns on and boots into an operating system like OSX,Linux, or any version of windows then your computer is partitioned its pretty much required to have an operation system. Parted Magic is not only for created partitions it has a complex formatting tool which provides many useful operations. It also has tools for cloning hard drives. It contains benchmarking tools and lastly data rescue tools. I have use the data rescue tools many times on damaged hard drives and it works great. If you want check out its website by clicking the link below. If you want to use it you can extract it to a flashdrive to or burn it to a dvd/cd.

The secret of cleaning windows.

January 31, 2014

A lot of my work involves making slow computers faster. Computers are usually slow for several reasons, the common ones are registry errors, packed temp folders, general operating system errors and problems, too many applications open, to many applications that open at the start of the computer etc. I could go on but I wont torture you, so all of us will get these problems sooner or later you can't help it so there is a great demand for software that fixes these general issues and keeps your computer running smooth. Most people get sucked in by being promised a really fast computer maybe it was advertised for free but there are so many pieces of software out there that that lie,want a lot of money and many not work at all they might even give you a virus. So as a tech what do I do I use Wise Registry Cleaner and Wise Disk Cleaner. I used to use PC Tools Registry Mechanic or PC PC Tools Performance Toolkit but they are no longer being developed. The Wise Tools are free and provide great features that can even be scheduled to run I suggest everyone install these two tools.  And to the other techs out there yes I like the wise tools over CC Cleaner.

Back to Code stop people from copying photos

January 23, 2014

I'm back to code I know but It's just this post I found something really interesting and I want to share it. Have you ever wanted to stop people from stealing your code or right clicking and "Save As" you pictures and what not. Well if javascript is enabled in the persons browser which in most new browsers it's always on. This code will disable the right click menu also know as the context menu. 

<body onload=";init_start(); "  oncontextmenu="return false;">

Your website

</body>

If you do any kind of web design you'll know what the body tag is and you should also know there should only be one body tag per html document. Just add onload=";init_start(); "  oncontextmenu="return false;" to your body tag and no one can right click. I found this on a word press forum and there were 2 people who said that they didn't like stoping people from right clicking I personally wouldn't care if a website didn't let me right click. It's not a full proof way to stop people from viewing your source code or downloading your pictures but it will stop some. Advanced users who really want the photo or what to see your source code will find away around it and they always will.

Books to Read

January 22, 2014

I recently read 2 books about computer science. One about Steve Jobs and another about Steve Wozniak, now I'm not the biggest fan of apple I have always been a windows person and still am but I have a little more respect for apple now than I did before I read these 2 books. The first one I recommend is Steve Jobs The Man Who Thought Different and the second is iWoz Computer Geek to Cult Icon. And some people give credit to the wrong people when talking about computers. Steve Wozniak invented the first personal computer SINGLE HANDEDLY. Steve Jobs did not really help build or design the first personal computer Steve Wozniak built it before he even mentioned it to Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs was a bit of a jerk, everything had to be his way and he always had to be better. With that being said Steve Jobs is still an innovator and a great one. Both these books are not bias they are completely fact based and I loved reading both. Wozniak's book didn't wasn't really told like a story, it just went through different times in his life. The one about Steve Jobs is definitely easier to read and was like reading a story. The book about Wozniak was harder to read and pickup each time because it was written by himself who is an engineer and has no degree in writing so it walks a lot about the specs on how he built the apple 1 and 2 and other electronics. He also shows for the first time his views on Steve Jobs. Both are important to see both sides on Apple and what really happened, who does the credit really belong to and why are these 2 people heroes. And it's also fun to read both books have a full understating of what happened and then watch the movie Jobs and see how off they are. And for the record I'm liking the new Macbook Pros more and more each day. And I think the Mac Pro is pretty awesome just saying.

 

 

 



Colored / Custom Scrollbars

January 22, 2014

Ok I know I just posted 3 posts about coding my next few wont be 100% based on coding for those people who don't care about CSS,HTML,Javascript etc...

This post is going to be really short I promise, its all about bringing back colored scroll bars it works in safari, opera, internet explorer 9 or 10 + and google chrome. 

For IE it's simple and old school. In your CSS through this in, THIS CODE ONLY WORKS WITH IE the next code will work with the rest except firefox.

html,body{
scrollbar-3dlight-color:green;
scrollbar-arrow-color:black;
scrollbar-track-color:silver;
scrollbar-darkshadow-color:black;
scrollbar-face-color:green;
scrollbar-highlight-color:white;
scrollbar-shadow-color:gray;
}

Ok so I used simple colors like green and black but you can use any color and even #ffff colors.

For Chrome,Safari,Opera use this, IT ONLY WORKS FOR SAFARI,CHROME,OPERA.


::-webkit-scrollbar { -webkit-box-shadow: inset 0 0 6px rgba(0,0,0,0.3);
background-color: rgba(0,100,0,.6); -webkit-box-shadow: inset 0 0 6px rgba(0,70,0,0.8);}


::-webkit-scrollbar-thumb {

-webkit-box-shadow: inset 0 0 6px rgba(0,70,0,0.8);
background-color: rgba(0,120,0,.8);border-radius: 10px;
}

::-webkit-scrollbar-thumb:hover {

-webkit-box-shadow: inset 0 0 6px rgba(0,70,0,0.8);
background-color: rgba(0,120,0,.6);border-radius: 10px;
}

 

::-webkit-scrollbar-thumb:active {

-webkit-box-shadow: inset 0 0 6px rgba(0,70,0,0.8);
background-color: rgba(0,125,0,.5);border-radius: 10px;
}

::-webkit-scrollbar-track {
border-radius: 10px;
}

Original info from CSS-Tricks http://css-tricks.com/custom-scrollbars-in-webkit/

Thats right that's a border-radius: 10px; and it works just look at this sites scrollbar its got rounded corners and cool gradients. Give it a try, there is currently no solutions for mozilla firefox :-( ....

Happy  Coding :)
