Since my job is taking so much time of my life I didn’t have time to write any more posts but hopefully with the new gadgets in my life I will continue to post more.
A month or so I got an Asus Transformer Prime TF700 and not very long time ago a Nexus 4.
I’m so pleased with the quality of these two products that I can’t find anything wrong with them. I just love them.
TF700 is with dock included, and I don’t regret my choice since the keyboard is so useful.
Nexus 4 is a big change in my life and a big upgrade. Until now I used a 3-3.2 inch screen… And upgraded to a 4.7 inch witch is huge!!
I’ll try to make a review to both gadgets as soon as possible.
Let me know in the comments of you want to learn something specifically about these gadgets or if you want me to review a specific thing about this devices.

Download the PDA.tar you want to modify
Extract the four files of PDA.tar.md5 in a directory.
Copy the four files in SD card of Phone
preferably name it mnt
so all four files should lie in mnt /sdcard/mnt
Fire up adb/Terminal emulator
#busybox mount system.rfs mnt2
use the file explorer like default My files/Astro/AND explorer/Root Explorer/ES file explorer.
modify the apps you want to add or remove in /system/mnt/mnt2/app
after modifying apps, fire terminal
#tar -c boot.img recovery.img system.rfs data.rfs >> PDA.tar
#md5sum -t PDA.tar >> PDA.tar
#mv PDA.tar PDA.tar.md5
For people who need a quicker way to root, other than SuperOneClickRoot + Willings kernel.
-> Copy root234.zip to SD card or root2.3.6.zip (according to your firmware)
-> Go to recovery mode (Turn off the phone, than T+Power (KEYBOARD T) )
-> Navigate via Volume Keys
-> Select “update from sdcard” with the CAPS lock key
-> Navigate to root234.zip
-> Select “root234.zip” or “root 2.3.6.zip”
-> Reboot system
Now you have a rooted device
Tested on Stock ROM. Tested by myself.

Hardware protection for this phone can be a little difficult since its not so popular.
I tryed to find out how can I protect my screen from scratches..and I couldn’t find…I searched back in January (…and gave up).
I also tried to find a plastic case to attach to the phone cover…nothing.
So, for screen I managed to improvise something.
Since my old phone was a Nokia 5800 and I had extra screen protectors I thought that I can use them, since its same screen size…wrong again. My wife has a Nokia N97 and since I bought her a few screen protectors than necessary…I gave it a try…
I did some measurement and I managed to cut from the N97 screen protector 🙂 now I have screen protection. After a few months I found in shops a big screen protector, but you have to cut it for yourself.
Because I like to take care of my phones (I’m a lil’ obsessed with this), I try to find protection for the phone case…no succes 😦 and after a few more time trying to find I gave up to that dream..and I bought a wallet-cover 🙂
The company that produces this is called GOLLA.
What did you do to protect your phone?
Ps: I wrote this post and I don’t know how it will look like in browser, but as soon as I get to my computer ill make it look good 🙂
Update: After upgrading to 2.3.6 i wanted to make a benchmark…here it is
Yesterday i told you about new firmware. I updated to the new one by Odin….and now I was able to use the Quadrant to do a benchmark to this phone (until now I got forced close all the time).
I don’t really know what do you expected from this device,because its a mid-range phone.
I used to benchmark my phone with Quadrant Standard and Advanced.
Standard: I did 10 tests one after the other one, and here are the results
Advanced: I did 6 tests one after the other one, and here are the results
