New Theme (FeedBack is Most Welcome)

 

With the introduction of a couple new pages to my blog, i had to change the theme to allow easy access to the newly created pages.

Now you can mouse-over the pages on top to see the page’s sub-pages.

A new search box is also present now to easily search this site.

What do you think? Is this one better or the previous ones?

iPhone VIRUS ALERT!

Recently a few iPhone viruses and worms have been popping out on the internet!

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/16/20091109/ttc-world-s-first-iphone-virus-surfaces-6315470.html

http://www.digitalproductionme.com/article-2034-first_code_red_iphone_virus_unleashed_in_europe/

Considering that the iphone has wifi these viruses/worms are spreading out like crazy; the iPhone owner doesnt even have to install anything to catch the virus, it automatically sends itself via wifi/3G to neighboring iphones!

I still havent seen any case in Lebanon, but i am sure it will catch on sooner or later.

Now to secure yourself from these worms, you should change the root password of your iPhone…

Why you ask? Let me clarify…

When you unlock your iPhone, you need to jailbreak it first.. the term jailbreak means to make the partition of your iPhone writable. By doing so, a user “root” with default password “alpine” is enabled and has FULL read/write on your system.

The newest iPhone viruses, use the default username “root” and password “alpine” to gain full access and infect your iPhone. They can have access to everything: emails, sms’es, contacts, pictures… they can even transfer credit to other phone numbers!!! YES THEY CAN DO THAT!

Now … How to protect?

All you need to do is change the default password from “alpine” to something else.. Most probably the dev-team (which makes the unlock) will force the users to change their passwords in the future, but why wait? follow these steps..

1)- Install “Mobile Terminal” from cydia.

2)- Launch “Mobile Terminal” and type “su” (without the quotes) and hit enter

3)- If you haven’t changed your “root” password type “alpine” (without the quotes)

4)- Then type “passwd” (without the quotes)

5)- Type in your new password and hit enter, then retype it to confirm..

 

Note: Use and easy to remember password, or you will have to reformat your iPhone to get it back!

Push Notifications UPDATED!

Its been a while since i posted anything on this blog, so this is what i have been up to!

I tried all the methods to get push to work on my iphone 2g over Edge..

i used the pushfix but not from cydia! get it from here! http://xs1.iphwn.org/releases/PushFix.zip

DO NOT USE THE PushFix from Cydia source “cydia.iphoneil.net”

Seems that push notifications worked over WiFi, but with a few problems!

Whenever edge is on, the iphone keeps on trying to get the push notifications over edge! they only get thru when edge is off! and this only happens when i call someone!

Anybody else noticed this?

iPhone User.. Share Your Ping ID!

Come on people share your Ping IDs


  1. Name: Hussam Ping ID: samlb
  2. Name: ZuZ         Ping ID: zuza
  3. Name: Nassib   Ping ID: nassib
  4. Name: Casual   Ping ID:Casual92

In case you dont know what ping is here is a summary:

A new iPhone and iPod touch app called Ping!, which aims to provide free iPhone-to-iPhone (and iPod touch) messaging to users of those devices. I tried it, and thought it was worthy enough to give a shout out to.

Basically, once you download the free Ping! application, you set up a username, and you are set. You can invite others from within the app over email, letting them know your username, and also set up whether you want push notifications or not. Once you start a conversation, it’s very similar to SMS…except it’s free, and instant. You get the speed of an IM conversation with the persistence of SMS, all at no extra cost. Even better, it works internationally. So you can send and receive messages with people in other countries, and again, at no extra cost.

Go ahead and give Ping! a try, I think you’ll like it.

Ping!

I’ll update this entry periodically with new user IDs.

iPhone Delivery Reports

Another missing feature in the iPhone messaging application is the sms delivery reports!

These can be quite useful, so follow the steps to get them into your iPhone!

Step 1:

Launch Cydia and add a new source “http://iphonedelivery.advinux.com/cydia” without the quotes.

Add new source

Step 2:

Install iPhoneDelivery (search for it in Cydia)

search for iPhoneDelivery

Install iPhoneDelivery

Step 3:

Reboot iPhone

Step 4:

Go into Settings -> Messages and activate ‘Delivery report’

Settings

And now you have the delivery report option on your iPhone 🙂

Delivery Report

USE IT WISELY :p

iPhone Call Forwarding Secret Codes

Despite the lack of GUI for setting the Call Forwarding (Divert) options in the iPhone, there is a list of codes you can type into the phone application to set call forwarding.

 

To do so follow the following tips! 🙂

 

Divert

Activate Call Forwarding

To setup “Call forward if busy”, simply dial *67*[another phone number]# and tap “Call”

To setup “Call forward if not answered”, simply dial *61*[another phone number]# and tap “Call”

To setup “Call forward if unreachable”, simply dial *62*[another phone number]# and tap “Call”

Deactivate Call Forwarding

To deactivate “Call forward if busy”, simply dial #67# and tap “Call”

To deactivate “Call forward if not answered”, simply dial #61# and tap “Call”

To deactivate “Call forward if not reachable”, simply dial #62# and tap “Call”

 

Divert Successful

You do not need to remember all these codes. Say, you usually use “Call Forward if busy”, save the number as a new contact. Next time, when you need to activate call forwarding, just look up that contact and dial the number.

 

As for the annoying pop-up message that you get whenever you place a call “Call Forwarding Active”,

“Just add “iFon1″ http://c.ifon1.no/ or install it from “More Package Sources” to the sources in Cydia and install “Callforwarding”. ”
