I’m not a free-marketeer but the amount of protectionism on Google Play (Market) is bewildering, not to mention the child porn as well. Every time I open the Play app and see the “Books and Reference” section I just lose hope for the future of this country.
So here’s how to get rid of child porn and have access to all apps on your android device, hypothetically of course (but only if you’re running a userdebug or a rootable custom ROM):
adb pull /system/etc/hw_config.sh
cp hw_config.sh hw_config.sh.orig
echo -e "while true ; do
setprop gsm.sim.operator.numeric 23410
setprop gsm.operator.numeric 23410
setprop gsm.sim.operator.iso-country gb
setprop gsm.operator.iso-country gb
setprop gsm.sim.operator.alpha o2-UK
setprop gsm.operator.alpha o2-UK
done" >> hw_config.sh
adb push hw_config.sh /system/etc/hw_config.sh
Now open Play’s preferences and make sure content filtering is turned off by checking all the boxes.
This would drain the battery so once you’re done installing the apps you need:
adb push hw_config.sh.orig /system/etc/hw_config.sh
One thing I have had problems with my TF101 is that I can’t charge it while connected to the PC via USB – I have to charge it using the mains adapter thingie they provide. This means that I cannot adb into it whilst charging. This is a bit rubbish since I wanted to run scheduled Jenkins jobs to sync files automatically.
With a bit of searching on xda, I found that I can solve the problem by letting adbd listen to TCP/IP port instead of USB.
- Gain root-access – because everything requires root-access.
- Make sure your device is connected to the WiFi network.
- In root-shell, execute the following:
setprop service.adb.tcp.port 5555
- On your host PC/Mac, connect to the device via:
adb connect 192.168.11.11:5555
- You can now use
adb shell, etc, via WiFi
To disable it and return ADB to listening on USB:
setprop service.adb.tcp.port -1
If you have USB access already, it is even easier to switch to using WiFi. From a command line on the computer that has the device connected via USB, issue the commands
adb tcpip 5555
adb connect 192.168.11.11:5555
To tell the ADB daemon return to listening over USB
>>> for o in explorer.models.MainBranch.objects.using('old').all():
... l = list(o.tags.values_list('pk', flat=True))
... o1 = explorer.models.MainBranch.objects.get(pk=o.pk)
... for id in l:
Well, I finished it, but I have to say, the ending was brilliant right up to the last bit. It’s left me feeling quite disappointed.
Things that pissed me off recently
- Old Japanese guys who stops right on the top of escalators, and, if you tut behind them, get angry and demand respect just because they are old.
- People who stand right next to the train doors just after they get on
- Mum drivers who go 1 ft over the centre line on narrow streets.
Lunch at Mon Tercero on the ground floor on Front Building in Shinagawa. Comes with what they call tapas, but, really, you need a fork. They have things like grilled chicken and “hamburg”. A decent food for a reasonable price. +2
