connecting palm tx to ubuntu 12.04 over bluetooth

Sometimes, is not easy to connect old device to new software, here is what I did:

  • disable pnat plugin in /etc/bluetooth/main.conf

  • create executable file /etc/init.d/dund to start dund daemon

    dund --listen --persist --msdun call palm
  • add your device in /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf

    rfcomm0 {
    bind no;
    device 00:07:E0:0E:40:88;
    channel 1;
    comment "palm";
  • restart bluetooth and start dund

Why sprints should end on Thor’s day

When sprints should end? Sprints can end any day of the week, but here are five reasons to end sprints in Thursday (which name is derived from Middle English Thuresday, which means “Thor‘s day”):

  • Thursday before Easter is it is traditionally a day of cleaning
  • Ascension of Jesus happened on a Thursday
  • Thanksgiving Day is celebrated on Thursday
  • graduation day in Thai universities almost always will be held on a Thursday
  • in Australia, most cinema movies premieres are held on Thursdays

not so short guide to root your NST

  1. Make sure you have updated to 1.2.1 version of nook firmware
  2. root your nook with NookManager – graphical rooter: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2040351
    1. no need to enable wireless
    2. root device
    3. disable B&N apps
  3. install HW buttons mod app from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1991048, jar files are taken from that thread and installed like this:
adb connect
adb shell mount -o rw,remount -t ext2 /dev/block/mmcblk0p5 /system
adb push services.jar /system/framework/
adb push android.policy.jar /system/framework/
adb reboot
  1. now you should install a hack for e-ink update speed increase, that is a must for web browsing
    1. you can install a fastmode kernel which looks great for applications, but not so nice for reading (it gives you multitouch + fastmode or usbhost). http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1906507
      1. fastmode application is used to disable fastmode, but I was could not enable the mode by gestures
      2. I enable it by adb: adb shell “echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/omap3epfb.0/graphics/fb0/fmode” (best way would be to use Gscript)
      3. – how I installed kernel: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=24168019&postcount=21
    2. I prefer norefresh apk, since I’m using the device exclusively for reading, and it make a great job while reading with opera from safaribooks (opera 4 browser has binding to hardware keys for page up/down scrolling). You can download it from here: https://github.com/marspeople/NoRefreshToggle/downloads.
  2. As a offline reading application I use CoolReader, it has already implemented features for e-ink fast refresh, so nothing to do for it more then simple install.
