Ok so I do some phone repairs for various local people and one of them happens to be a Droid X2 digitizer. I don’t keep parts in stock and up till now I have never had a problem ordering parts and getting them in a fairly quick manor but then I ordered a digitizer from a ebay seller I have never bought from before. They had fairly good feedback up to this point but there were a couple issues but hey when you are selling hundreds of items your always gonna have an issue right?
I order the part on 10/16/12 and happily await its arrival meanwhile I also order a few sets of LED strips and a digitizer for a Blackberry as well (on 10/17/12 and 10/18/12) on the 10/22/12 the led’s and blackberry digitizer have arrived but the the x2 is still not here. I email the seller and this is what happens.

Some hackers out there have cracked open the level 0 bootloader security on the playstation 3. While this does not mean much for those who are using a stock ps3 it means quite a bit for the homebrew hacked firmware users out there. It as of right now means that the cat and mouse game is over for the currently modded systems because there is no firmware hole to patch. New released firmware versions can just be customized and signed for the modded systems and there is nothing that sony can do it. Now if only they could do that to the iPhone then I would be super happy!

ok so the site was down for a day or so and I just wanted to give a quick explanation as to why this happened
The data center we use was doing a migration into a bigger and better facility and sent me an email about the job a couple weeks ago. However I forgot to update the nameservers and ip’s with the new ones so when the migration occurred the domains didn’t know where to go.
Its all fixed now and the site has also been updated to fix any security flaws.
There may be some new features in the near future for TMS as well
I have an x2 that I wanted to root because I am a control hog and want all the abilities my phone has to offer. Therefor I went searching for a method that worked and after working google half to death I found it courtesy of XDA
Here is a quote of the post (source post at the bottom)
This is the process I used it is slightly different than Dark’s and the original link. The standard warning applies here, NEITHER MYSELF NOR ANYONE ELSE IS RESPONSIBLE IF YOU BRICK YOUR PHONE DOING THIS!
- You MUST have the ADB drivers for your phone installed which are obtained as part of the Android SDK.
- You MUST have USB Debugging enabled on your phone.
- You MUST have Superuser installed, which can be found on the Market.
- Download the following file (adb-fastboot.zip): LINK
- Download this file as well (root.zip): LINK
- Extract these zip files to a location that is easy to get to, the original instructions suggested making a Root folder in C:\, however it is really up to you. Just make sure all the files are extracted to the same folder.
- Get your phone into Fastboot mode, to do this:
- Shut the phone off.
- Hold down the Volume Down Button while pressing the Power Button.
- After the phone turns on you should see Fastboot at the top of the screen.
- Press the Volume Up Button to enter Fastboot mode. Your computer may need to install drivers if this is the first time you entered Fastboot mode, so let this happen BEFORE proceeding.
- Start a command prompt on your computer.
- Type the following commands:
- cd \<DIRECTORY> where <DIRECTORY> is the folder you created. If you created the Root folder in C:\ it would be cd \root.
- fastboot flash preinstall root.img
- fastboot reboot
- Wait for the phone to reboot, once it does so execute the following commands (in the command prompt you should still have open):
- adb shell
- On your phone you should see a prompt to Allow or Deny Superuser access, allow this. Then execute the following commands (in the command prompt you should still have open)
- mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk0p12 /system
- cp /preinstall/su /system/bin/su
- chmod 6755 /system/bin/su
As long as you follow those directions EXACTLY then you to can have all the rooted goodness your phone has to offer

Part 8 of my ford probe project!
Got the interior put back in!
Then came the fun stuff… Time to install the sound!
I went with some pioneer 6.5′s that I had laying around up front and then I had a set of pioneer 6×9′s in boxes that I put in the trunk so when I pop the trunk I can set them up and have a nice tailgate system!
I paired those with a pioneer cd player I had from my old car and a set of 12″ Powerbass subs and an 800 watt mono powerbass amp. I can shake the hell out of this car or turn it down and have just the right amount of bass
Pulled the interior out of both cars tonight…
Here is the 95 stripped…
As you can see the previous owners did not take to much care in the interior of the carNo comments
Got the dash back in
And got the bumper back on so I can drive it again!
Got the doors and fenders on (hood just sitting in place)
Right before I put the passenger side fender on
What my Shiftboot looked like prior to my fiance hand stitching a new one
Got the wires run for my power locks and windows because the car did not originally have them
I had to splice in all 20 wires into new door plugs so that it would work properly
Shot of the 9 wires routed up next to the firewall
All the wires sitting on the drivers side waiting to be patched into the ignition and 12v constant… Gotta install the power door lock relay also -.-
Ripped the Gray() Dash out and now its ready for me to put the black (with red stripe) dash from a 93 into it.. Gotta sell the airbag to make up some of the funds I have wasted
Tomorrow I try and finish up the wires and put the dash back together!No comments
Fender and doors on
Dash pulled to fix the wires for the doors and replace with black dash with red stripe!
My fiance is starting to make my custom shift boot…
Here is my hand stitched shift boot…
Came home from work and started in on the probe again
Got most of the parts I need off of the 93 (still gotta get the bumper itself and the interior but wanted to get the 95 started)
this is my 1995 ford probe the way I bought it… rough shape :S
Another shot… Someone spray bombed it red from its original purple color
The interior is mostly trashed there are some saveable parts that I will sell tho
Got it up on the stands and started removing the fenders
I ended up getting one of doors and fenders replaced before realizing that the quick connects for the door wires on the 95 were burnt where the previous owner shorted out something. So I am going to pull the dash on both cars and replace that whole section if its even possible.No comments
