Hi guys.

I am going to relocate most of my non-band related content from this blog onto another blog.

Although I enjoyed getting a lot of reads lately, it seems that this blog has become a little bit non-standard. I have loyal readers (I hope) and people who’d be willing to come to me to ask for help. I enjoy helping as much as possible.

And not forgetting being featured in WordPress’s BOTD and fastest growing blog, I’m just so honoured. But my decision is final.

Most links WILL be broken (if you have linked to me). I will not leave any trace of the post in this blog at all.

Since I’m getting more and more ready for my band Dermapthera, I plan to use this domain name (dermapthera.wordpress.com) as an official blog for the band only. I have been sticking to the domain name for as long as I can remember, and most people in the blogosphere will identify me as “dermapthera”.

I find that this could be misleading in the near future. Although I don’t see the band anywhere being successful in the near future, there’s still a possibility that we could be if we worked hard. Me and my vocalist have drawn out our visions for the future of the band and what we could do.

Hence I would like to take this opportunity to migrate to another blog. A new blog name, a new blog address. And I need a new identity. I don’t want to be remembered as “dermapthera”, but instead, as the “guitarist of dermapthera”.

When my new blog is ready, I will announce the address again. For now, I might not be updating new contents yet.

Sorry if I have caused any inconvenience. You guys have been great, and I have been enjoying a lot from blogging here.

Expected migration period will take one week (starting today). I will re-announce again once migration is successful.

Cheers.

P.S: The main reason why I placed all the tag/categories there is to reach out to potential RSS readers.

Make custom carrier images/logo (iPod Touch)

February 18, 2008 at 2:26 pm (How to, iPod Touch, Technical Stuffs, Tips and Tricks, Version 1.1.1, Version 1.1.2, Version 1.1.3)

Hi guys!

I know this sounds a bit old, because I’ve only figured how to do this just TODAY! 😀

I was looking around to make my own carrier image for my boring iPod Touch, but I think I kept hitting the wrong keywords. And it always brings me to wrong places. So one day, I brace myself to ask someone (and hopefully he’s a nice guy!) to figure it out.

Then one day he replied! I was overjoyed. Hahaha… Didn’t really expect some complete stranger to help me out. I was so helpless.

Anyway, since I figured it out, I’m going to share with you how you could do it. (Full complete steps)

What are the things I’ll need?

You’ll need a PNG-8 image (don’t worry if you don’t understand), and it’s maximum height is 20px. You can use mine though if you want! 🙂

Here’s mine (I’ve converted into PNG8 format, for smallest filesize):

Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png
FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.png

Next, you’ll need something that you can access your iPod Touch’s internal system. For me, I’m using the trusty iphonebrowser. Use google, I’m sure you can find it easily.

So what do I do? (Finding the correct file)

You’ll need to search for the original file. If you don’t want to lose it, rename it so that you can replace it if you don’t want to use it anymore.

Step 1: Open iphonebrowser application

Step 2: Click on Goto Location -> Springboard Images and Settings

Step 3: Rename Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png into Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png.bk. This is necessary if you want to revert back to the original iPod carrier. Do the same for FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.png.

Step 4: Drag and drop your images (or you can use mine as a sample) into this same box (where you saw the files). Make sure the filenames are correct. You’ll need Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png and FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.png as the filenames.

Step 5: Restart springboard by using Summerboard. Or killboard. Or you can use Erica Utilities. Any method you use, all you need to do is restart the springboard to take effect. Alternatively, you can simply reboot your iPod Touch.

I need help! I’m a n00b13!1!111!!11

Well, you can always ask me. Or you can read the original write up. Either way, I hope to be of assistance to you.

Good luck!

Free up unwanted space while using 1.1.3 jailbreak

February 5, 2008 at 11:09 pm (Downgrade, How to, iPhone, iPod Firmware, iPod Touch, iPod Touch Jailbreak, Technical Stuffs, Upgrade, Version 1.1.3)

Dlight sent me an email (hi Dlight!) and I guess it’s only appropriate to write this down since some people are desperately trying to get back their used space during that 1.1.3 upgrade phase.

However, I am only reading the script files and learned from it. I have no prior problems in freeing up the space (maybe the new firmware added some more shit? We don’t know) but I know we can only remove the 1.1.3 firmware file off your device.

So let’s get started!

Surely not another disclaimer right?

Heh… For this post, nope. But I’m going to tell you that I don’t know how much you can recover, or what files you can remove. I’ll try my best to guide you though.

Phew! Now what?

I’m sure some of you are running SFTP program to SSH into your device. I have been using another alternative (because I got no wifi) and I find them working 100% all the time.

So go ahead and download iphonebrowser (this guide will be using that) or iBrickr (maybe in future updates, but not today…)

One you got it, connect your iPod Touch or iPhone via the USB dock connector. You don’t have to launch iTunes, so just launch the installed iphonebrowser.

Now, if iphonebrowser doesn’t run on first try, wait for about 1-2 minutes before killing it. To kill it, simply hit CTRL+ALT+DEL, then look for iphonebrowser.exe, then end the process. This however only happens to me, maybe because of my firewall.

Do take note that iphonebrowser (or iBrickr) uses a certain port to connect to your device. It’s the same as iTunes, if this port is blocked, you can never connect to your device.

So now, you look for this folder:

/var/root/Media/1.1.3

If it’s there, DELETE IT.

Now you should be able to get back those space.

No! It didn’t remove all those space I need!

Erm… But that’s the only thing that’s there… I really don’t know if there’s any other files being used prior to upgrading though…

I can’t connect via iphonebrowser (or iBrickr) but I have wifi!

Ok, then download MobileFinder instead. Look for that folder, then delete the content. Or you can simply delete the folder.

DAMMIT! I want all those space! And NOW!

Erm.

If you asked me, I really don’t know where the rest of the space used up goes to. It was really undocumented so I can’t really locate the necessary file I was talking about.

But that alone should be able to remove approx 160 MB (the original firmware restore file). If you only removed 130 MB, then I’m not so sure why is that so.

Questions

Yeah as usual, hit me back and I’ll try to help.

I might not be able to answer all your burning questions, but I will try my best.

So well, good luck!
