Railfan Trip

Yesterday Jim and I went to the railroad capital of the U.S. The Chicago area has lots of viewing excitement opportunities. We first started out in Blue Island, then after lunch we went to West Chicago. After an hour or so then we went west to Rochelle. Here are the Pictures and Videos I took with my HTC Inspire 4G phone.

Congratulations Milwaukee Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers Clinched the National League Central Division title yesterday. Hopefully they can make it to the World Series! It’s been 29 years for a division win and 3 years to make it back to the playoffs. It would be nice if they would win the World Series that would be great after Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl earlier this year. To have two state teams win their respective championships! GO BREWERS :)

I had a busy summer!

This summer I was busy. I work a lot of hours and took a 10 day vacation Up North in Wisconsin. I have posted new pictures in our trips album from this year and last year from the Crivitz Wisconsin area.  Also at the end of the Door County Gallery there is new pictures. Our family had fun we stayed at my step mom’s sisters cottage. We did lots of things including taking a day trip to Door County Wisconsin. It was like taking a vacation within a vacation.

My Rooted HTC Inspire 4G…. The Rom & Radio I use and My favorite Apps

Are you bored of your stocked HTC Inspire 4G and want more feature? Well there are many people out their that root there phone.

What is a rooted phone? A rooted phone makes you a Superuser in other words an administrator like on windows operating systems.  Rooting only can be done on Android phones. You might of heard the term jail breaking, but that is the term used to hack Iphone or other Apple base systems.

***Rooting of a phone you can BRICK the phone if you do not follow the instructions carefully. A BRICK phone is one that does not boot or gets stuck booting (Soft Brick). The tips I give here, the authors of the hack kit, Rom, Rom addons, and radio are not responsible for your Actions. Root At Your Own Risk. Rooting voids the warranty on the phone, but you can unroot the phone to make it stock if you do not brick it.***

The Android OS is based on the Linux OS. Which is open source software.

The first thing is to root the phone. I used the Ace Hack Kit Click on the link to get to the forum page of the author of the hack kit.

Next I put a custom Rom on it using Android Revolution 4G and updating the radio suggested by the Mike the author of the ROM by using a method that is safer way to flash a radio than his way.  Click on this link http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1002226 to use this method I will supply the file used so you do not have to do all the work. Radio used for Android Revolution 4G Android Revolution 4G Radio (420).

You have to use ClockworkMod recovery to install the extras. I have HTC Sense 3.0 components installed. Android Revolution HD Sense 3.0 All in one 5.1.x v.0.3 (265) with USB Connection Interface, Streak LW, Weather 0.13, Lock-Screen 0.15, SMS Bubble Interface & APM

I changed how my battery meter looks like top is the addon bottom is orignal

Download this from http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=894837 or you can download it from here Android Revolution HD Battery Meter (200).

Now my Recommended Apps:

  1. AVG Anti-Virus App
  2. Titanium Backup ★ root (I have the pro version key)
  3. Documents To Go (I have the full version license app)
  4. Hands-Free Voice Dialer : CD+ (Purchased)
  5. ³ (aka Cubed) This app is used with the Hands-Free Voice Dialer : CD+ to use voice commands with this music player.
  6. Barcode Scanner
  7. Out of Milk
  8. Emergency Information: ICE (In Case of Emergency) Plus (Purchased)
  9. No-frills CPU Control
  10. Super Box -10+ tools in 1 app
  11. WeatherBug
  12. FireFox

I have many more apps but these are the ones I would recommend as a must have on your phone.  I use Google Voice so I have that app installed. For my hands free device I use a Jabra SP700.

Feel free to ask questions on how I did this or if I used certain apps :-)

One Season Done Another Two Starts!

Well its was a great football season for our World Champions Green Bay Packers. Hopefully they have a chance to repeat next season if there is a next season.

Racing season starts with a non points race tonight. Let’s see who can finally knock down Jimmy Johnson and win a Nascar Championship this year. Hopefully my favorite drive Dale Earnhardt Jr. will get out of his funk and wins some races and into the chase. He has a new crew chief this year.

The Milwaukee Brewers start spring training soon. The first spring training game is February 28, 2011. This year should be good for the Brewers as we finally got two good pitchers. Hopefully the Brewers will get into the post season.

Superbowl Here We Come!!

In a defensively battle the best defense won as they say the best defense wins championships. By the way after further review the Bears still suck!!! The Bears had the Refrigerator in the 80’s and now the Packers have the Freezer. We knew it was going to be hard hitting defensive game. Now it’s off to Dallas to bring the Lombardi Trophy back home where it belongs. GO PACK GO!!
