Newbie Android question

From: Tyler Mittan 
------------------------------------------------------
Hey guys,

I have a good old Nexus 4 and I want to install Android L. I know it still
has its bugs, but I am just curious to see how it runs on my Nexus 4 before
I run out to buy the Nexus X. The directions are as follows (from XDA):

*FIRST TIME FLASHING*

   1. Put the file onto your Internal Storage
   2. Reboot into Recovery (CWM/TWRP]
   3. "wipe data/factory reset"
   4. "mounts and storage" -> "format system"
   5. "install zip" -> "install zip from sdcard" -> choose the
   mako-bla-bla-zip and confirm flashing procedure
   6. "reboot into system"
   7. *first boot may take up to 10 minutes - be patient*

Unfortunately, though, I can't seem to be able to move anything into
storage and I do have root access. I shouldn't have a problem after step 1
so I was wondering if anyone could give me a relatively detailed
explanation as to how I can move the .zip file into the internal storage.
Thanks!

OT: LG G2 update

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
So for anybody interested in a top of the line android phone (Quad core 2.2ghz, 2gb ram 32gb storage 5.2" screen, built in wireless charging) for under $250 here is the update.

The battery life is FANTASTIC! The rest of the phone is as well. This is as happy as I have been on Android. I spent $225 on ebay for a verizon unit because it is the only one with built in wireless charging and is FACTORY UNLOCKED for SIM cards.

So a phone that is better in many ways than a Galaxy S5 for almost a third of the price? WHAT are you waiting for???

Here is a bit about battery life:

Is directv.com blocking traffic from Tor nodes?

From: "Robert A. Kelly III" 
------------------------------------------------------
I'm unable to access directv.com and I'm wondering if they are blocking
traffic from Tor nodes. I am running a non-exit Tor node on my home
computer, and I get access denied from any browser on any operating
system (Firefox, Chrome, IE, or Android browser on Linux, Windows, or
Android) when connecting from my home internet connection. My Android
phone can access it from 3G, but not my home wifi. If I bypass my router
by directly plugging in a laptop I can access it, but only because I get
a different IP address. If I spoof my routers MAC address so that I get
the same IP address, it is blocked again. I also found that when I
connect using the Tor Browser, I get access denied, so it is not just my
IP address that is being blocked. Can anyone else verify whether they
are able to access directv.com through Tor or from a non-exit Tor node?

It would be fun to do a screencast showing a live gigabit file transfer between two 
ordinary houses (or apartments) in Chatt. You could likely transfer 10 GB in less 
than five minutes -- if you had Core i7 computers on both sides. 


Here is the screencasting software that might work well for that task.

If only there were someone from MAKE magazine in Chugalug who could write up

Oooh, it would be hilarious to show such a file transfer with an insert video of Windows 7 
booting up on a 2008 or 2009 computer. The 10 GB file transfer might complete before 
Windows 7 reaches the desktop.

I will likely buy my next Android 4+ tablet from NoMoreRack.com. They
have $60-80 tablets, we bought a random one for Charlene's
developmentally disabled brother and it way surpassed my expectations
for a $70 tablet+keyboard+case deal.

[OT] Android Tablets to Get Rid of?

Looking fairly cheap as we still have the hearth...

I'm baaaaaaack!

From: Ed King 
------------------------------------------------------
Got bumped off the list back in mid May due to "too many bounces".    Been checking chugalug.org webpage occasionally for any job announcements or hardware sells/freebies ;-)

I stayed unsubbed for awhile (and missed Hack-a-nooga too) because I needed to focus on our latest and biggest client rollout, which went "live" on 6/2/2014.    To "save money" we switched hardware platforms a few weeks before rollout (went from $800 kids-toy netbooks to $300 Dell Venue tablets), but the software platform stayed the same (albeit with some custom mods for the new client):    lamp stack (linux/apache/php/mysql) on qemu.    Why are we running in a vm/emulator?  Well its a long story but a previous 3rd party vendor wrote our field software.  This 3rd party vendor required Windows netbooks.  Their software was slow and flakey (as you'd expect from dot-net) so we ditched them and rewrote the field software in-house (like we wanted to do in the first place, and we did it in less than half the time, and still had more features and flexibility!).    But... we couldn't just throw out twenty $800 netbooks, so we leveraged that hardware "investment"
 by using qemu to run our lampp stack, thinking that it would also be portable if we ever moved to android (does anyone know of a qemu package for android that doesn't SUCK?)

Back-end:   For "security" this client did not want their data on the same server as our other clients, so I set up a new Debian server just for them.  HTTPS and automated sftp file transfers. 

Well now that this new client is up 'n running, I figured it was time for me to re-sub, so...  I'm back.  This new client is our biggest client to-date, and has doubled the amount of inspectors in the field (and doubled the data collection too...  thank goodness we solved that mysql lock problem we used to have).   Things are running smoothly!   I dare say that the support calls have somehow decreased (oh great, now I've jinxed us).    

Props to our little I.T. team:    Danny "dj" Smith Jada "coldfish" Case, and Master Ed :)









New Kit Review: Pebble Steel

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
So yesterday my shiny new Pebble Steel smartwatch arrived.

In true geek fashion (pun intended) I sync'd and loaded etc for several hours.

Here are my observations:

1. Excellent build quality for a smartwatch. Not so much compared to a swiss timepiece or nice Timex. Meh. As a watch collector this bums me out a bit. Will get better in time, probably after Apple sets the damned standard.

2. Buggy firmware for both watch and Android. Not unusable, just a wee bit annoying.

3. Not as user configurable as it should be. Example: The backlight that comes on when you flick your wrist is 2 seconds. Why can't I make it 5 seconds, or 3, or 10? Some of the watch faces have a lot of data compactly displayed, and 2 seconds is NOT enough time to grok it.

4. New app-store android app is slower than molasses, to the point of being annoying. I am certain this is partially caused by the bluetooth connection to the watch and necessary confirmations needed by the software as currently configured.

5. UI of watch and nav in the UI is just ok, not optimum. This is a new category and individual usage styles have yet to be mapped, then optimized. I feel certain this will improve fairly quickly with updates.

I have 30 days to decide whether or not this replaces my Titanium Omega Seamaster as my daily watch. I searched for that watch for years and to me it is the ultimate in a rugged daily watch, so the bar here is set pretty high. 

What I can say is that now that my wrist vibrates for texts and phone calls I am a lot more likely to respond. Ever since I started carrying my phone in my pocket I have missed 70% of all my calls and texts, so this should help with that at least.

My Galaxy S4 drama

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
So my phone drama:

My S4 had been acting weird for a few weeks. It ate 2 batteries (batteries seemed dead or defective, wouldn't charge), and would randomly re-boot. 

I started to wonder if the OS was Windows XP instead of Android.

It finally "died" when I was on the phone talking to my business partner in USA a few days ago.

I took it to a repair shop I have used before and they tested it. Said it was a bad CPU. Little guy took the phone apart in about 7 minutes, and showed me the CPU board. Quoted me $72 USD to fix it. I said yes but wanted to ask some more questions. I thought he was replacing the board like we would here in USA.

Turns out he was going to un-solder the CPU and re-solder a new one to the board since the board cost $180 to replace. This CPU is "wave-soldered" by a PCBA "robot". It is surface mounted and the 80 or so "contacts" are about 1/10th of a millimeter wide with about twice that amount of space between them... I was skeptical, and said it was OK to try, but that the $72 would also apply towards the new cpu board price of $180. He agreed that was fine and proceeded.

ONE HOUR LATER: He hands me a repaired phone that works perfectly. 20 minutes of that hour was waiting for the new snapdragon processor to be delivered.

Little Chinese guy has MAD SKILLZ. Wish I had taken a selfie with him.

Using a tablet as a music front-end

From: Dan Lyke 
------------------------------------------------------
I currently have a laptop running Linux plugged in to our stereo as
our music player. This is klunky and big.

I have a first gen iPad, and can see buying an Android 4.1 or 4.2
tablet (or may be able to repurpose an old 2.2 phone) to be a better
audio source.

Anyone got suggestions on how to serve either of these platforms off
of a Linux server? I see forked-daap, and there are a few daap clients
on Android and iOS (and the iOS one is old enough that it might not
have been 7-ified and still work on the 1st gen iPad).

Something else I'm not seeing? Spend the extra mumbledy for a 32 gig
tablet and just copy everything to it? Anyone done it?

Vancouver Public Library rated number one in the world

Hi chugalug community, 

Here's some interesting news to think about. 


http://tinyurl.com/l6xp5bg 


Chatt's library has such strong leadership that it's conceivable that the Chatt library could 
rise to be number one in the world -- especially with the way it has formed partnerships with 
groups around town. 


I don't know all the indicia they use to measure "best library in the world," but I do know the Chatt library is firing on all cylinders these days. 


If you're interested in ideas for moving the Chatt library in that direction, kindly contact me 
off-list -- and we can continue a small group conversation off list and involve Chatt library staff 
as their time permits. 


Yes, it's admittedly a "squishy" concept to be rated number one library in the world. 
But it truly is an attainable goal for Chatt -- and would spotlight the city in a great way if 
that were to happen.

My own private NSA

From: Dan Lyke 
------------------------------------------------------
Short version: I wanna snoop on DNS traffic on my network, and I want
a little auditing to reassure myself about what sort of traffic the
devices on my network are generating.

Background: Alan, Charlene's developmentally disabled brother is
staying with us, and we got him a $79 Android 4.1 tablet+keyboard
combination off of Nomorerack.com for Christmas. If, 20 years ago,
you'd have told me that I could buy a multi-core GHZ+ device with that
resolution 3d accelerated for $80, I would have called it unbelievable
science fiction.

I'm sitting in my cube this afternoon and one of the ops guys walks
over and says "our malware DNS page just got the most interesting
delisting request from your home IP address..."

Indeed. The de-listing request form got a couple of "overseas
pharmacy" and "cheap auto insurance" HTML and BBCode posts from, from
a user agent of

  "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:19.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/19.0"

I call home, Charlene disavows running Windows. I log in to the Unifi
controller and don't see any Windows machines on the wireless net.

So I haven't had too much chance to debug yet, but I suspect that this
is coming from Alan's tablet.

What I would like to do is to run a logging DNS proxy on the home
server, and, probably put the DHCP server on that machine as well.

Anyone got experience with the right way to do this? I could easily
whip up a Perl DNS proxy, and probably just install isc-dhcp-server,
but if someone's got some experience with this that'd be awesome.


Thanks!

Linux tablet suggestions

From: Unkmar 
------------------------------------------------------
I'm asking Santa for a tablet for Christmas.  I know he will lighten my
wallet in exchange.
I've looked at the PengPod. http://www.pengpod.com/
It fits a tight budget for someone that wants to get started with a Linux
tablet.  I want so more: RAM, SSD, A docking keyboard and touchpad.  The
1040 does look reasonable. I like the dual Cameras. And currently their

There is the Python S3.

I'm not a Windows fan, yet the triple boot does appeal to me. I like the
docking station. USB, Wired NIC, keyboard, touchpad.

The other suggestion has been a Surface Pro and install Linux. It appears
that will leave Android out of the equation.  I guess I could live with
that.  I haven't checked the specs on them yet.

Any others want to weigh in on some Linux Tablets of today?
