Unlocking an iPhone

A lot of my friends has been asking me for the steps on unlocking an iPhone. The hardware unlock is of the past, you have the easiest anySIM software unlock now. I thought that I might as well provide some simple steps on how to do it. I will not be responsible for your phone if you ever brick it.

Files needed: jailbreak, iBrickr, PACAY and anySIM.pxl. You should be able to find all these files from the internet. Plenty of source for it.

1. Make sure your iPhone is fully charge and connect it to your PC.

2. Start your iPhone in recovery mode by holding the POWER and HOME button. The screen will shows a Yellow Triangle with the word PLEASE CONNECT TO ITUNE.

3. Start your iTune. It will ask you to restore your iPhone. Press the SHIFT and click RESTORE button to proceed to restore to v1.0.2 (The anySIM currently works only on iPhone v1.0.2, do not try on any other versions). It will take about 10 minutes.

4. Once completed, shutdown iTune.exe and iTuneHelper.exe in the Task Manager.

5. Run Jailbreak in DOS mode. Follow on-screen instruction.

6. Run PACAY's One-Click-Activation for iPhone and YouTube. Follow on-screen instruction.

7. Run iBricker. Select Application and Install PXL. Follow on-screen instruction. Once done, select Install PXL from File. Select anySIM.pxl

8. Once anySIM is installed into your phone, you will see an icon there.

9. Restart your phone.

10. Set your phone to NEVER lock.

11. Start the anySIM by touching the icon. Click agree to proceed.

12. Wait for about 5-10 minutes for the process to complete.

13. Pray... and do not touch the phone and let anyone come close to it.

14. You should see a UNLOCK FAILURE message. Ignore it, restart your phone.

15. Put in your SIM card and there you go!

Getting Watch Maker and third party watch faces to work on an iOS connected Android Wear

Many people loves their Apple Watch, so do I. As Android Wear improves over the past year,  we started to take it seriously. I have got an Huawei Watch with cool round 400x400 pixel AMOLED display. It looks like a traditional watch with a glance at it. The cool thing about having an Android Wear is that you have access to tons of cool watch faces. Apple Watch is limited by the fact that it has limited selection build by Apple, no developer has been given access to build any watch face for it.

You must be wondering how do you connect your Android Wear to iPhone and get access to third party watch faces. The Android Wear iOS app provided by Google provides access to some limited selection of watch faces, you can't use any of those that are out there on the internet developed for Watch Maker or Facer.

Thanks to Kevin from XDA Forum, you are in luck now. 

You can now install third party watch faces on your Android Wear and get connected to iPhone for notifications and Google Now. It may …

Why iPad

A lot have been said about the iPad, you would have already know what it have or have not. Just to re-cap, the iPad does not have USB port and webcam, it does not support java and flash. So why iPad when all these supposedly standards are not included?

First of all, iPad is not a computer. It's not intended to replace your PC or laptop. It serves as a in-between for your phone and PC. It's give you the convenience of instant start to your surfing habit, reading emails, ebooks, watching movies etc on your bedside, by the pool or on the plane, anywhere you can think of including your bathroom.
