Tip

Downgrade iPhone 4, 3GS from iOS 4.0.2 to 4.0.1 Without SHSH Blobs Saved [Update...


Download iOS 4.0.1 ipsw from here.
Extract it with WinRAR or WinZip to a folder on the desktop. You may need to rename the firmware file from .ipsw to .zip to do this.
Open the buildmanifest.plist with the Notepad if you are on Windows, or TextWrangler if you are on Mac.
Search and replace all – 8A306 with 8A400. Save. Repeat the same with the file restore.plist.
Download iOS 4.0.2 ipsw from here and open this with WinRAR or WinZip.
Note: Do not extract it. Just open it and leave it open. You must use this exact file and not create a new one. If you have to create a new one for reasons like you are on OS X, then use zip command line not explorer or finder to make the zip. I will assume you are using the original file opened in WinRAR for the rest of this guide.
Take all the files from iOS 4.0.1 and drag them over to the iOS 4.0.2 zip archive that you have open.
Delete all the .dmg files that have 002 at the end, leaving only the 001 files left.
Save the archive, and rename it back to .ipsw if you changed the name to get WinRAR/WinZip to open it.
Put the device in DFU
Now simply open iTunes and restore the firmware you changed.
This is it, you should now be able to jailbreak and unlock your device on iOS 4.0.1 with JailbreakMe

Winzip mac evaluation


Lucky for us all, making a ZIP file ( Compressing files to save room) is built-in for macs.

1. Select several files or folders
2. Right Click (Control Click with single button mouse)
3. Select "COMPRESS _ Items (example shows 3)
4. Your mac will make a compressed file
5. Automatically saved in the same location

Sadly, Mac always names the file Archive.zip. I suggest changing the name of this file to make it clear what files are zipped together. Just make sure you keep the .zip on the end.

Your original files will also exist unaltered. 0e118444-53cb-4458-9eca-2df0e553041d.jpg

The Instant Backup on my Seagate Freeagent Goflex portable drive says the backup is complete in one area, then says backup in progress. It's been backing up the same file for about eight hours, "


How big is the file you are transferring ?
The FAT32 format does not support single files larger than 5GB, so if you have a file larger than 5GB you cannot put it on your FAT32 thumb drive. Most thumb drives and other portable media devices use FAT32 format, so this setback makes large files less portable, and that just won't do. Get around this problem by compressing the of the file or by splitting the file up into multiple pieces.

Create a folder for your RAR file and insert a copy of the original file into this folder. RARing a file separates it into multiple pieces, so creating a file specifically for your RAR file will keep the files together allowing you to move one folder to your FAT32 device instead of having to locate and move multiple files. Right click the large file that you want to put on a FAT32 device. Select "Add to archive" from the menu that appears to the side. Select "RAR" from the "Archive Format" located to the left of the menu. Click the arrow next to "Split by volume, bytes," and select "CD 700: 700mb." This will create a new file for every 700mbs, meaning your your one large file will be separated into many 700mb files that can be put back together as a single file later. Click "OK." Put the folder, containing your newly separated files, onto your FAT32 device after WinRAR has finished separating the file. b> Zip File b> Right click the large file you want to put on a FAT32 device. Select "Add to archive" from the menu that appears to the side of the file. Click "OK" on the next menu. This menu allows you to customize the compression settings. The only option you need to change is the "RAR" selection to "ZIP" in the "Archive Format." The rest of the default settings will work fine, so there's no need to change anything else. The zipped file will appear in the same folder as the original. Delete the copy of the original large file from the folder and put your newly compressed file on your FAT32 device after the file has completely compressed. The time it takes for the file to finish compressing depends on the of the file. Hope this helps. http://www.all-freeware.com/getfreeware.html?pid=109090&mirror=1

Key symbol appears on digital display and heater will not start. Model: rinnai avenger 25 plus


The Key Symbol means the controls have been locked. Either by accident or intentionally. If you don't have the code to unlock the controls. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Wait 30 minutes and plug the unit back in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. The heater should have reverted back to the original factory settings. Now, you can change the settings to whatever you prefer. Just stay away from the Lock-Out button.

Hop this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Adobe reader tries to open zip files in Vista


For some reason or another your file associations got screwed up. To get it back to the default behavior, open Windows Explorer and right-click on any .zip file you have on your system. Select Open With -> Choose default program... from the context menu. This will bring up a dialog that will allow you to choose between a couple of programs. If Windows Explorer is not there, click on the Browse button, select C:\Windows\explorer.exe and click on Open. (This is generally faster than waiting for the Other Programs portion of the dialog box to populate.) Make sure the checkbox is selected next to 'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file' so it will permanently change the file association in the registry. Click on the OK button to complete the change.

Unable to receive emails from certain contacts


I'm assuming that "send" should be "receive" because you most definitely can send attachments from a Hotmail account, no matter what type, as we'll see in a second.
There are two solutions, neither of them pretty:
  1. Have the sender send the attachment again, with a different name, or as a compressed file. ".zip" files are fine. ".exe" files are not. So if your sender creates a .zip archive of the .exe file that he's trying to send you, that you can save, and then decompress back into it's original form and name.
    Heck, just renaming the file is enough. Have the sender rename the .exe file into a .txt file and send that as an attachment. You'll be able to download it, and then rename it back to a .exe.
  2. Forward the attachment to a non-Hotmail account. Hotmail doesn't mention this approach, but sure enough, even though you can't open the unsupported attachments, you can forward them to a different account on a different service. If that service allows you to open the attachment, you've got it.
Hotmail's goal here is, obviously, to make it difficult to open malware in attachments by accident. You have to take steps of some sort; you have to think about it.
If you go through those steps, and you still get infected? Well, it was your own doing.
