Things that went right and wrong when I ran Linux 
This is a post detailing my latest experience using a Linux distribution. I have for a long time wished Linux could really compete in the user-friendliness area. I installed it on a USB drive for a younger friend of mine as he is saving up to get Windows 7 for a new PC of his so thought he could try Linux while he waited. He is as end user as they come so I thought it would be interesting to see what he thinks of Linux. Read More...

HOWTO Enable Wake On LAN (WOL) with ASRock 880GM-LE FX Mainboard and Windows 7 

If you are visiting this page looking for help on getting WOL working on the ASRock 880GM-LE FX mainboard, please follow the link to contact ASRock about it.

ASRock Technical Support Contact Page

I have not been able to get WOL working with this board under either Windows 7 or Linux Mint 13. ASRock needs to provide details on how to make it work, provide a firmware update to fix it, or admit that WOL does not work on these boards.

This note contains a HOWTO for enabling wake on LAN (WOL) on an ASRock 880GM-LE FX mainboard running Windows 7. The guide and steps probably work for almost any mainboard supporting WOL.

This note is meant to have a guide for enabling WOL but it seems there is something wrong with either Windows 7 or the drivers for my NIC. I am currently trying to get this working and updates will be added here as seen fit.

Try out the guide below and it may work for you. If not, leave a comment so we can see how many people have problems with WOL and Windows 7.

Development on TAJB has ceased 
Mkalter, developer of the Team Android Jelly Bean rom for Samsung Galaxy S (and other devices) has announced that development on the rom has ceased. Stating, "He got a new device and wants to concentrate on school" development on his rom is discontinued.

TAJB was one of the earliest jelly bean roms for the i9000 device and showed promise, however, some bugs still present in the v7.1 release do make it annoying for the user experience over time.

I suggest trying SlimBean or SlimICS for the i9000 as a replacement rom.

20101006: Have been using SlimBean for a while now and have been very happy with it's performance and support. No bugs come to mind, the phone runs nice and smooth, battery life is great, all functions I need work well. I recommend SlimBean as a JellyBean choice for the i9000.

Also, there was a report on whirlpool.net.au's forums that TAJB 7.1 ROM replaces your device's IMEI number. The Optus carrier in Australia started blocking devices with the particular IMEI TAJB was putting in the device. I informed the dev on the official website, but never heard back from him. I suggest looking for an alternative to TAJB 7.1 until he releases a fix.

HOWTO Install RIL and Spirit FM for FM Radio on Team Android Jelly Bean V7.1 for Samsung Galaxy S i9000 
This entry documents how I got FM radio working on my SGS i9000 while running TAJB v7.1 ROM. I have also used the same method on SlimBean for i9000 and it works. I think it would work on any custom ROM on i9000.

Note that your device must be rooted for this process to work. If you have a custom ROM your device is likely rooted. Read More...
