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.

! If you want to share your work please test the ROM so other people will not have to suffer from your incompetence.
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.

It is the same thing as GEARLOOSE ADB MANAGER…
with GUI (Graphic User Interface)
It is a simple GUI based on The Wizard’s Apprentice 1.5 by Dion Nicoolas
Antivirus software raise flags while executing GearlooseGUI.bat. But you guys can check the script and I assure it just a false positive
Extract the zip contents and execute (2x click) the GearlooseGUI.bat
Yes it looks like an installer since the original program was supposed to be for installers
This a batch script for people having trouble with adb commands or people who are too lazy to type
YES THIS FILE IS ONLY 9 KB
Just double click on gearloose.bat to execute the script
Execute option 2 First time after installing and it will create a bunch of folders and sub-folders
Folders Explained :
gearloose is the main folder
app,backupframework and sd are three subfolders
app sub folder :–
data : /data/phone apps will be saved here (single)
databatch :all the /data/apps will be saved here
note: to backup data apps, you will need to set the permissions from shell manually
installsingle :place apk for single install
installbatch : install apks in a batch (Limited to 10 currently)
system : /system/apps will be saved here
systembatch :all the /system/apps for total backup will be saved here
backupframework :Currently only tested on single samsung phone. Backs up framework-res.apk and twframework-res.apk
backup : transfers a single file from sd card to this folder
fullbackup : transfers the entire sdcard contents here
camera :camera pics are located here
push : Can transfer a file from PC to sdcard
0: Mindless Dabble
1: Help, useless though
2: Important function, creates folders for the manager. It should be executed FIRST before doing anything
3: Lists apps in /system/app folder
4: Transfer a particular app from /system/app folder to \gearloose\app\system
5: Backup all apps from /system/app folder
6: Backup a particular installed app from /data/app folder
7: Backup all apps from /data/app folder
8: Batch Install apk from computer to phone. It is currently limited to 10 apps. Place the apks in installbatch folder and rename them from 0.apk to 9.apk. It will directly install to your phone.
9: Install a single apk from installsingle folder.Follow the instructions
10: Backup frameworks from samsung phones.From other phones it will only back up framework-res.apk to \gearloose\backupframework
11: List SD card contents
12: Push a file in SD card.File should be in gearloose\sd\push folder.It will be pushed to /sdcard/gearloose folder
13: Backup a file from sd card .It will be saved in \gearloose\sd\backup folder
14: Backup camera pics :- All camera pics present in DCIM folder will be saved to \gearloose\sd\camera
15: Backup entire SD card. (ALL THE SD CARD CONTENTS ARE TRANSFERRED TO computer. It will take disk space and time.)
I have tested all functions .
