Windows Mobile 6.5 Alpha

exeda-shot-2

Compulab’s Exeda is being tested and currently running with the new version of Windows Mobile 6.5.

Exeda, likely jumping the gun a little, has released 2 pictures of their dual boot smartphone running Windows Mobile 6.5 ALPHA, as they call it.

While called Alpha, the build seen in the picture may actually be more advanced than the ROM leaked earlier, as it features some enhancements only rumoured at before.

Of note immediately is that the honeycomb-based app launcher is in fact real. It seems it will make use of the new scrolling capabilities of the OS, and is romoured to automatically sort regularly used and relevant applications close to each other

I really like the honeycomb app launcher and really hope that the smartphones which will be using this operating system will also be stylish, so there’ll be a real competitor to the iPhone from the Windows side. But we’ll have to wait a bit more as Windows Mobile 6.5 is still in Alpha phase.

More pictures after the break… Continue reading

Windows 7 Features: Troubleshooting Packs

swiss20army20ranger20pocket20knife

New to Windows 7 is the Windows Troubleshooting platform. This platform allows software developers to develop Troubleshooting Packs that automate the troubleshooting and resolution of problems without having to resort to painful technical support queues or documentation runs. In a nut shell, a software developer writes a bunch of PowerShell scripts to identify and resolve problems then packages them up and distributes the pack to end-users.

At the end of this step-driven course, you will have used the Microsoft Troubleshooting Pack Builder (TSPBuilder), written some PowerShell scripts, and learned of a way to distribute your compiled pack (hopefully).

Update: You can try using the direct downloads for Windows 7 Beta 32-bit or 64-bit versions.

As promised, Windows 7 Beta is officially available to download for the general public. You’ll need a Windows Live email address to be able to download it. You can download the Beta from here where you can either choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions.

I just tried to download the 64-bit version but the server is experiencing “technical difficulties”, in other words, a lot of traffic… who knows why :). I’ll be checking in a few more hours. If you are able to download, please let me know.

So as i said in my previous post… and many others did as well, last night Steve Ballmer said that Windows 7 Beta 1 was immediately available to some beta testers and that it can be downloaded by the general public as of next Friday 9th January from the Windows 7 page.

But you need to hurry up… why? … because you need to be amongst the first 2.5 million people to download it, and it’s on;ly available for a limited time. If you don’t manage to download it… well… you’ll have wait till someone uploads it as a torrent 😉

The following Windows 7 versions will be available for downloads: Continue reading

Jailbreak iPod Touch from 1.1.4 to 2.2

apple-ipod-touch

This morning I had to jailbreak an iPod Touch on Windows Vista which was still with version 1.1.4, and let me tell you… it wasn’t as easy as to jailbreak an iPhone. Not because of the QuickPWN, but because it’s more difficult to find and download the firmware for the iPod Touch than for the iPhone! In fact it took about two hours to finish the process… anyway, let’s start jailbreaking your iPod Touch:

First connect your iPod Touch with your PC

  • Create a Folder named iPodPWN on your desktop
  • Download firmware 2.0 for your iPod from here
  • Save firmware to the folder iPodPWN
  • Open iTunes Continue reading

Windows 7 Beta x64 leaked

windows_7_logo

A few hours before Steve Ballmer makes his keynote at CES 2009, the Windows 7 Beta 64-bit version has been leaked on the torrents. A few weeks back, the 32-bit version was leaked and things looked pretty good with this version, so i’m hoping that the 64 bit version will perform on the same level, if not even better :).

The full file name is said to be 7000.0.081212-1400_client_en-us_Ultimate-GB1CULXFRE_EN_DVD.ISO with a file size of 3.15 Gigabytes.

Click here to download the torrent for Windows 7 Beta x64 edition. If you want to wait for the Windows 7 public beta version it should be released in the coming days, after tonight’s Ballmer’s keynote!

Happy torrenting… if you cannot wait! 🙂
