Android…


Ive blogged in the past on my craptastic adventures with unlocking and jailbreaking friends apple iphones and ipods but i never really have taken much consideration on blogging about the Android OS. Android is my OS of choice and I have quite a few interesting things to post about it. Of course I wont do all of that right now but I might start blogging a bit about this as well. Many know that I use the HTC HD2 which to me is about the best phone ive ever owned. This thing can run just about any OS including Linux and Windows 7!!! All I am running though is WinMo 6.5 and Android Gingerbread.

I rooted my phone and decided to go with the CyanogenMod7 builds. Popularly known now as the AmeriCanAndroid build.

One of my favorite spots to visit is http://www.xda-developers.com A great site devoted to hacking all different models of cell phones. Anyone interested in a rooted build of Android for their HD2 or your Android device please check out the following links:

The builds I use are ran from the Micro SD Card as WinMo is the main OS so backing up and installing new builds of Android is fairly easy. Of course if anyone decides to go to these links and try it for yourself I suggest backing up your phone data before doing so and formatting your Micro SD Card.

NAND versions of Android are also available where you don’t need to use the card. I have not decided to take the step in flashing Android to my phone just yet. I keep WinMo just in case!

For my WinMo build I use the custom build

Anyways, if anyone has questions about running Android on your HTC HD2 I suggest checking the above links as your questions and easily be answered there.

O K i am going to bed now. My bunk is calling my name and I need a lil sleep!!

Mishaps & Vengeance!


yeah my phone is in it, the grave that is! the stupid ass touchscreen will NOT respond to shit! did numerous hard resets, task 29 w/o mtty. did a mtty, installed different ROMs and the phone is dead. you can call me and I can talk to you but the screen is 100% completely gone. so yeah im getting a replacement BUT i have NO phone to use out here. The only person I know that would have spare phones is in TX and I am in Tampa! LOL geezus. guess ill just wait til i get the new phone.

i actually have another phone which I use for the sake of my company outside of the music biz. those that have the number can call me on that or text me on that phone. OR just email me and ill get it to you…if i know you good enough that is LOL.

other than that, nothing new to report….well…kinda….sorta….lets just say the R1200GS has broken mirrors and a scratched up tank thanks to some fucktard that decided to dart out on the road and hit the brakes to a slow crawl of 5mph…..im not racist but honestly brotha WTF were you doing darting out on a road going 50 then slamming your brakes on hard and going 5mph? I guess its their way of creepin or whatever the fuck they call it. i dont like rap so i dont know lol.

I have one more ride left on this tour. Tampa Florida to West Palm Beach Florida. I apologize for the lack of everything lately. Pics, blogs, routes on everytrail. Im sorry. Just been a clusterfuck of work, trying to relax, been feeling a bit under the weather lately and all of that just rolled into one has me stressed. Its 4:32am here in Tampa and today is the show. We got back to back shows this weekend. Today in Tampa and tomorrow in WPB and that ends the USA Leg of the Time Machine Tour. Then it will be off to South America for four tour dates Sao Paulo, Rio, Buenos Aires and Santiago.

Kinda going back to my phone. Well today as I made it to the hotel, I checked in under another crazy name that totally doesn’t fit with my look. I dont have to. Im not a rockstar but its fun to do. lol…I had dinner at Council Oaks Steaks. Mmmmmm. pretty good. It was near the hotel. After dinner thats when the motorcycling fiasco took place. The bike is in riding condition just no mirrors. They are getting fixed and hopefully ready for tomorrow. After Saturday ill say goodbye to the two wheels and ill be heading home for a few days where ill meet my new phone! yay!

so yeah thats basically the lowdown on my shitty week. oh and get this……I read online that the 16GB Class 2 Micro SD Card that came with my phone is supposedly bad and causes issues with my phone, SOOOOO, HTC is sending me a replacement card. A Class 4 one. I guess its a better card. Same size, BUT i get to keep the old one so ill be using that extra 16GB as storage on my netbook for movies!!! lol I have a 8GB SD Card in my netbook now and im only using about 2GBs of it so it would be nice to have a full 16 to save movies. I tend to convert movies over to MP4 format so I can watch them on the computers and on my phone. I feel lost without my phone right now. I mean its sitting next to me turned on but fucking worthless! lol

ok so im out. gonna sleep a few hours and grab some breakfast and them im off to the Ford Arena. Peace out my friends. Hopefully you are somewhere where its nice and cold because its fucking hot as fuck in this fucking country! I hate heat damnit! I want fucking cold weather now!!! SNOW, ICE, HAIL, THUNDER, HURRICANES….something…shit! lol

ok peace out!

Quick Blog for Thought


dont have much time in my busy schedule to be on the internet or blog so I am going to make this quick.

a friend on Facebook posted a link about people that leave their kids in a hot car and their kids dying. It said something about 37 deaths so far or so. Thats pretty fucking pathetic if you ask me. I will post the link. I didnt read the entire thing but its pretty self-explanatory.

http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cnn.com%2F2010%2FHEALTH%2F07%2F07%2Fhot.car.parenting%2Findex.html%3Feref%3Digoogle_cnn&h=96ea6L0ZWw7U7uKjIJFLJMQmvwQ

Ok so there is the link. Here is what I think is so fucked up about this. Ok im no father. I dont have kids and I never have knocked up any woman. I think its crazy that these people forget their kids in the backseat of the car while commuting to work and/or the day care. I bet those people dont forget their work, briefcase or their cell phone. Wait, im sorry Apple whores i mean I PHONE! Yes I know, you Apple people are tempermental about your gadget because you think its the messiah of phones! Hate to tell you but not only has HTC topped your device but Sony is soon to release a phone that will top them all. Ok so back to the story lol. Sorry, you know I have to throw my two cents in about Apple constantly. So yeah its messed up that these people wont forget their phones in their car but they forget their kids.

Sorry people but “i was late”, “i was running late”, “I have alot on my mind”, “i have an important business meeting to get to”….etc….those are NOT excuses. NOTHING is an excuse for leaving your kid(s) in the backseat of your car and letting them fry like and egg and die. If you really think an excuse is going to constitute what you did and somehow make your answer valid and worthy then your quite fucked in the head. There is NO excuse and no words can fix the craptastic situation you would have brought forth on yourself. Could you really look your spouse in the eye and tell them your job or meeting was more important than your kid? how about the kids grandparents. Could you tell them you kid wasn’t worth as much as that big promotion?

in closing, its really sad that people show their true colors and where their priorities in life lie. First off, i understand if your phone is in your bag, purse or briefcase but if you are using it while driving which you shouldn’t be in the first place then there is no excuse. You can replace a fucked cell phone left in the car all day but not a kid. Well, technically yes you would replace a kid too…as sick as that may sound yes you can but its the idea and the fact that it is THAT kid. Sure a couple could fuck and make more babies but its the moral of it all. You just dont leave a kid in a hot car. That goes for animals too. You know Im not a dog lover by any means but its fucking cruel to leave your dog in the car in hot weather. Put a thermometer in your car and leave it there all day or for a few hours and see how hot it gets in there and how quickly!

So people, have some common sense, take each day slow and make valid decisions in your life. Dont be a fuck up and forget your kid in the car and end up in a horrible situation like this. I may not want kids much now in my old age but hey, they dont deserve to be treated like shit in the backseat of your car.

Maybe I should propose some type of alert/warning device that attaches to the seatbelt and when your car goes off alerts you in the driver seat with a flashing light and alert tone so you DONT forget your kids in the backseat.

Ok so that is all with this rant! You can all pick up your iphones and use them now!!! LOL
