iPod Touch 2G jailbroken with 3.1.2 firmware

Photo by ToniVC

Finally got around to installing the 3.1.2 firmware on my iPod.

  1. Get the 3.1.2 (or 3.0) firmware. 
  2. Grab PwnageTool from TPB (you'll need a Mac for this :) )

Everything else is downhill from there. Open up PwnageTool, pick your model, find your firmware and that's about it (unless you want to change boot logo, etc.)

Then restore your iPod with the new [custom] firmware with iTunes. In iTunes, go to your iPod on the left hand side, hold shift and press restore. Find your firmware and that's it.

I've come to realize that no one reads a blog where people (such as me) babbles on about their life. Know why? No one cares. People dig tutorials on the internet, if they wanted to read stories they'd pick up a book.

 

I'm in the process of upgrading my Hackintosh from 10.5.2 to 10.6. Shouldn't be too much of a pain in the ass, but oh well.

 

I've gotten a serial terminal working on my Thinkpad. I can know get a [virtual] terminal, via serial to one of my servers which is great. I could SSH into them, but plugging shit in is much more fun. I'd suggest those who want a quick terminal to check this out.
 

Hackintosh build

I finally got around to building my own Hackintosh using no special hardware really. I guess the only requirements you really need is a CPU that supports SSE2/3 instructions. Just grab the latest Kalyway DVD and you're good to go. 

Mac OS X (Darwin) didn't detect my on-board NIC right away and I didn't feel like finding the kernel extensions for it; whatever so I found a spare 3Com NIC which worked. I'm stuck at 1024x768 until I get a new graphics card. I haven't tested audio yet so I'm not sure if that works. Edit: Works perfectly!

Edit: Screen shot here.

There's a shitload of other kernels you can try, but the original mach_kernel worked for me.

Klam fyr

Life has been comme ci, comme ça lately. Lately, I just don't care about anything. School especially. I really just don't care about anything. It sort of gave me more freedom though. I do whatever I want to and I don't give a shit. I get ASC which fucks me up even more. Maybe it's the energy level, I don't know. That's it, I just don't know.

I feel like I'm being pulled down all the time, having a weight on my back. Guilty conscious? If only I had feelings; then I'd be normal or at least sub-par. 

Stay awake 48+ hours

Being the geek I am, I usually stay up a minimum of 24 hours when I'm really interested or concentrated on a subject. Below, I'll point out what I do, for those that want to accomplish the feat.

  • Sugar

 Increase your sugar intake, not by sugary drinks though. Small candies (gummy worms, etc. )worked the best for me. Last thing you want to do is crash.

  • Sleep

Get a good nights sleep the night before.

School's been pissing me off, most predominately ICT (IT) class. Guess what we did the other day? Used Norton Ghost and re-imaged a install of XP -again. Today, we learned about the BIOS (of which the instructor pronounced 'by-oss'). Ooh, how fun! One of the kids (who was supposed to be a 'smarter one') pronounced ethernet as 'ether-net', instead of the long 'e' sound. Frustration followed.

I got a hold of a screaming fast 486 the other day, running at 166MHz with a whopping 64MB's of RAM! W00t! It also had a tape drive, whive I've never seen. Anyway, I ended up putting DeLi (console version) on the POS and well, it runs smooth. The other distros I tried (Slackware and Debian) didn't detect the PCI and ISA NIC, but apparently DeLi did. I updated the repo's and the system using: pacman -Syu

Once that was finished, I installed lynx of course with: pacman -S lynx

 

Qui est l'exemple

School's started, which is just great. I won't go into great detail, as it'll bore the shit out of my readers (that is, if I have any).

I'm in an 'IT' course, if you can call it that. So far, it's ridiculously easy.
"Ooh, get it to boot from CD/DVD, start up Norton Ghost, and install XP using the image provided".
Yes, and people needed help doing that. People who were already in the same class last year, needed help.

What made me LOL, is when the teacher asked how many computers [and what they run] everyone had. Course, he didn't get to me. Anyway, seems like everyone uses Vista (kewl dewd) or some 1337 h4xx0r use Windows 7!
