Fresh News Area » Android Tricks Covering The World of Technology Sat, 04 May 2013 05:28:24 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Ways to Purchase Nexus 4 in India ? Sat, 22 Dec 2012 10:22:51 +0000 Harkunwar Nexus 4 was launched in many countries and it went out of stock in a couple of minutes. This was due to very very high demand of the phone from the public even from countries with not much population

Now as an Indian, I also wanted to get this phone by hook or by crook. I tried calling many of my relatives living abroad but they were hesitating to purchase it via play store and when they were ready, the phone was out of stock.

From that time I started to find each and every way to buy Nexus 4 directly in India without need of any developer and that too for cheap price.

All the people selling on ebay are selling it at a bit high price rate so I became dis interested to buy from them but if you know, ebay is still the securest way to get your product delivered to you as you get ebay guarantee which doesn’t give the money to the seller until you receive the product.

The first working way to get Nexus 4 in India without any Relative in foreign countries is with the help of shipping companies like Hopshopgo (or comGateway), PPOBox or Borderlinx.

You just have to to make an account on the shipping sites. These sites will give a valid address to shop online. You just have to buy nexus 4 from the play store via a US Proxy or a US VPN with keeping the shipping and billing address same as the address given by these shipping companies.

If you are afraid that the phone will come without warranty then their is also another alternative. You can use The American Bazaar as they provide their own VPN and address and also give you satisfaction that if the phone has any damage then they will ship it back to USA for repair and that too for free.


There are also company like Shop Your World from which you can buy directly but the problem with them is bad reviews so you I will recommend you to stay away from these websites and stay on the safer side.

Hope you liked my views. Personally I purchased it from The American Bazaar due to scare of loosing warranty with other services but services like Borderlinx, PPOBox and Hopshopgo have come out great for many other Nexus 4 owners.

You have to first download the “Touchpad” App from Play Store and install it in your android phone. Then you have to install the Touchpad Server. You have to unblock this software from the Windows Firewall.

Now make sure that the phone and as well as the windows PC is connected to same internet connection. Also make sure that the Tocuhpad Server is running.

Open the Touchpad app in the phone and click on the menu button then then click on connect. The default IP given will work for most otherwise you need to change it from the server.

That’s all your Touchpad app will be working till now.

Touchpad is a free Android app to enable you to control your windows computer from your Android device. It provides a simple multitouch touchpad interface to control the mouse, and accepts keystrokes from the keyboard on your device to send to your computer.

You can Drag with 2 fingers to select, tap with 3 fingers to right click and scroll in the side for scrolling in the PC. You can also use the keyboard which also helps a lot to be completely wireless.

Steps to overclock :-

  1.  Download the Merruk 2.5 kernel and Kernel updater script
  2. Put both the files in Micro-SD Card
  3. Switch off your phone
  4. Boot into recovery by pressing Volume up, Home Button and Power Button together and leaving all these three buttons when you see Samsung Logo
  5. Navigate via Volume buttons and select “Install zip from SD Card” by pressing Home Button.

Best ROMs For Android That You Must Port As A Developer Sun, 15 Jul 2012 13:32:15 +0000 Harkunwar Google launched Android when Apple launched it first iOS Device Apple iPhone 2G (Original). This was a superior operating system. It kept on innovating as it got updates. Now it is super advanced with its Jelly Bean Android 4.1 Operating System

Today I will tell you the top known ROMs that You should port to your device as a Developer.

1. CyanogenMod

This is the best ROM in the Android world. CyanogenMod is an aftermarket firmware for a number of cell phones based on the open-source Android operating system. It offers features not found in the official Android based firmwares of vendors of these cell phones. It is the smoothest ROM with most available features and also the most popular one.


This is the best user friendly ROM in Android. The biggest advantage of MIUI ROMs is that it can be customized a lot. The person who installs this ROM makes his phone unique as the Customizations made by the person is unique in the world. This is the second best ROM after CyanogenMod.

3. Android Open Source Project (AOSP)

This is a stock Android Operating System. It comes with no other features other than stock. HTC ROMs come with HTC Sense and Samsung ROMs comes with TouchWiz UI and AOSP ROM is made to remove every application and interface by the Manufacturer. This is a good ROM as it adds Features which are not available in the Stock Firmware by the manufacturer.

4. Joy OS

This is a ROM with looks of Apple iPhone. People want things which they do not have so this is the reason people use Joy OS ROM. This maybe a bit difficult to port as it comes with Chinese stuff that you have to remove but still this is the best ROM for users that are coming from Apple World.

5. Parandroid

Parandroid is a great lovely ROM. It can switch between Phone, Hybrid and Tablet Mode. It comes with features taken from CyanogenMod and AOSP. This ROM is loved by Samsung Galaxy Nexus users and other users may also love this ROM a lot. This is the best Hybrid ROM available for Android Devices.

I am sure that these are the best available ROMs for Android and you would give a try to port it to your Device.

Unlock HTC One S For Free [Root Needed] Wed, 06 Jun 2012 09:27:56 +0000 Harkunwar HTC One S is One of The Slimmest Phones Out There Having Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It Is Powered By HTC Sense 4.0. It Is A Great Device With Great Speeds Given By Snapdragon S4 Dual Core 1.5 GHz Processor. Gone Are The Times When We Found The Fastest and Rarest Computers With This Speed. Today, I have Found A Great Guide To Unlock Your HTC One S for Free. It Will Work With HTC One S locked To Almost Any Network.

This Guide Was Written By an XDA Member “ascot17“. He Has Used The Method of HTC Sensation To Unlock This. This Method May Work With HTC One X and HTC One V also But We Can’t Say Anything Because We Haven’t Confirmed This.

Things You Need To Unlock Your HTC One S

  • Your Network Locked HTC One S
  • A Sim Card With Which it is Not Locked To
  • Some Mathematical Skills With Common Sense

You Just Have To Follow 4  Steps For This Unlock.

Steps For Unlocking HTC One S :-

Step 1

Open Terminal Emulator App Which You Have Downloaded From Google Play Store. Type The Following Lines
su [Press Enter]
strings -n 8 /dev/block/mmcblk0p6 [Press Enter Again]

This Will Output Several Lines In The Emulator. One Of The Line Will Be UN_Lock_code=……….. For Example - UN_Lock_code=063312345

Make A Note Of This Number on A Paper and Remember That this is Not Your Unlock Code . You Need This For Further Unlocking Process.

Step 2

Find You IMEI Number By Typing *#06# On The Phone App. Make A Note Of This Number Also.

Write Down Last Seven Digits Of Your 15 Digit IMEI Number For Example Last 7 Digits of My IMEI Number Are 1234567.

Now, Take The First Four Digits At The End. My Number Would Be 5671234

Now Add A Digit X Between First Three Digits and Last Four Digits, My Number Would Be 567X1234. We Have To Get The Value Of X. For This We Have To Get The Sum Of First Three Digits Which is 5+6+7 = 18 and We Only Need The Last Digit Of The Number which is 8. For Example If Sum Is 3 then X = 3, If Sum is 12 then X = 2, If Sum if 25 then X = 5.

My Number With The Following Steps Would Be 56781234 Now

Step 3

You Need To Perform A Simple Sum Now
Subtract The Key Obtained From Second Step From The UN_Lock_code Obtained In First Step.

For Example My UN_Lock_code is 063312345 and My Key Obtained In Second Step is 5678123 So Sum is
063312345 - 56781234 = 6531111.

The Unlock Code is Always 8 Digit So If Your Answer is 7 Digit Like The Above, Add a Zero In The Start.  So The Unlock Code Obtained Will Be 06531111 For Me. Your Will Be Different.

Step 4

You Have To Unlock Your Phone With The Code Now
Remove The Sim Card It Is Locked To and Pop In The Sim Card Which Doesn’t Work.
You Don’t Need To Reboot The Phone and You Will Be Prompted  to Enter The Unlock Code. Now Enter The Unlock Code Obtained in Step 3.

Now Your Phone Is Unlocked and You Can Enjoy.

The normal frequency of the processor is 832 MHz. This means that you will get an extra 68 MHz. I think you would be able to feel the speed of this 68 MHz. Some games which lag in Samsung Galaxy Y will not lag because of the extra frequency of the processor. You will meed to flash a custom kernel made by XDA dev Maroc-OS and all credits goes to him. Overclocking may decrease your battery, so remember this thing and don’t comment that the battery is decreased. Remember to install Custom Rom like Creeds Rom or Infected Rom (Both Recommended).

Update :- You can now overclock your phone to 1.2 GHz ! Check out Overclock Samsung Galaxy Y to 1.2 GHz
