iPhones for cheap

Posted by Mark

Well not really cheap but cheaper than what a lot of people are selling their iPhones for. Click n Buy are selling the 8GB iPhone for KD219. Compared to Eureka’s KD399 price and compared to individuals who are selling their phones for KD230-KD250, suddenly Click n Buy looks like a good deal. [Link]

Special K.

Posted by K.theKuwaiti

After I accepted Mark‘s invitation to be a guest writer in the week +1 span of his ‘vacation’ .. I came to the realization that If I were to post here as often as I posted on my personal blog .. my next post would be in a couple months.

However, you can be assured that in the span of my absence (and Marks); Marzouq will post about cartoons and toys, while Nibaq links you directly to the original content.

(If you count the K’s you get a prize.)

-K.

Plane Updates

Posted by Nibaq

I haven’t blogged with Mark since back in the qHate.com days. It feels like a velvet glove cast in iron.

Well the plane is almost done. We had the technical guy come over yesterday for a safety check and some other advice. It is looking good based on his view. He suggests that we cut more weight from it as possible to help the lift. Seems that every little bit helps.

All is left is our secret weapon that Mark is brining with him from his trip, and the color of it. I really hope we don’t have the same incident as last time. Huge fight broke out about which color the plane should be. We didn’t talk to each other for a week…

Vacation

Posted by Mark

Prince Charles

I will be out of the country from the 19th of October to the 27th on vacation. Me and Nat will be heading to London and Paris and so I don’t know how often I will be updating the blog through out this trip. If I don’t update it daily I am sure you can understand why. This is my first proper vacation in a long time.

I couldn’t unlock iPhone with firmware 1.1.1

Posted by Mark

iphones

A friend of mine passed me his two iPhones today to unlock. He purchased them around the same time I purchased my last iPhone except his arrived with the 1.1.1 firmware while mine luckily arrived with the 1.0.2 one. Yesterday an updated version of AnySIM got released which I posted about and which supposedly unlocked the 1.1.1 iPhones but I tried it and it didn’t work.

The steps to unlocking a 1.1.1 iPhone are fairly easy, its just one tiny extra step compared to unlocking the 1.0.2 phones.

1) I downloaded the latest version of INdependence
2) I ran it and clicked on the option to Enter DFU mode (this is the option that you didn’t have to do with 1.0.2)
3) I quit INdependence, ran iTunes and restored the phone to version 1.0.2
4) I quit iTunes and ran INdependence again
5) I clicked on Activate
6) I then clicked on Jailbreak
7) I then clicked on install SSH
8) I FTP’ed to the phone and copied AnySIM
9) I ran AnySIM

Thats all the steps required to activate and unlock the iPhone. I also installed AppTapp but that can be done later. Now my issue is everything went smoothly except for the AnySIM unlock. It ran and gave me an error at the end which is normal, but when I rebooted it still wouldn’t work with the local GSM network. I tried unlocking both iPhones and had the same issue. Everything else on the iPhone works except for the phone. I don’t know if this is happening with other people or if I missed a step somewhere but whatever the reason might be it’s too late at night to figure it out.

Apple Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)

Posted by Mark

Leopard

So the new Max OS is available to pre-order from Amazon.com for $109. I placed my order but I wish they had it available as a download on the first day of release. Kinda like the Radiohead album. Actually, like the Radiohead album, it would also be cool if we could decide on the price ourselves, I would have paid $50 instead of $109. [Amazon Link]
