My Android NightmareApr 23, 2018
I dont think i've done a real blog entry until now, but this seems worth sharing. First of all, im not big into the android modding scene, so its a miracle that i was able to root a verizon samsung galaxy s5 and install safe strap in the first place. (anyone with this phone knows what a bitch it is to open up). fast forward a couple years later and im tired of being stuck on 4.4.4. by the grace of god im blessed with another miracle and able to remove safestrap, unlock the bootloader, flash a custom recovery, and install lineage with gapps and supersu.
well, this morning the devil must have wanted to get his dick wet too. i looked at a notification for a lineage update i had been ignoring and thought "fuck it". went to install it and the device rebooted. two hours later the lineage bootlogo is still going. i restart the device, no boot at all. wtf? i boot into twrp, no backup. so i wipe the device and try to install the original rom still resting on my sd. "zip file corrupted, install failed".
ok.. redownload rom and other things, boot back up, again "zip file corrupted. At this point i seem to recall updating twrp at some point. so i go to flash an older version. reboot and "no boot.. blah blah.. some error". i dont even have a recovery at this point. just a smug green robot and a wall of doomed text.
so i fire up my laptop, put the cunt in download mode and start flashing every twrp version in existence. each one "zip file corrupted". but, i have recovery back. get a copy of adb, put the phone in adb mode, and i start sideloading lineage, gapps, su, etc.. i'm finally sighing out of relief because, as i type this, im looking at the "set up new device screen".
thanks for reading

I came for the hacks and stayed for the community. I happen to like this place and most of you are awesome. I like having a place to bs with people and a little drama here and there is entertaining.

Would you guys want to be involved..Aug 21, 2017
..in a episodic thread series like kyt, but instead we share our questions, perceptions, and stereotypes of each other's countries?
Something that has fascinated me recently is the fact that we can have real time conversations with people all over the world. I know this probably doesn't seem like a big deal to most of you, but 20 years ago that was really unheard of.
We could share our ideas of each others countries and hear what other people think about us. Assuming it doesn't turn into a huge racial or political disaster, would anyone else be interested in it?

Life is hard...Jul 17, 2016
...for super geniuses like me. Its a well known fact the 90% of the world is populated by under-evolved knuckle dragging primates that can't comprehend the vastness of my intellect. Its so frustrating when I attempt to communicate with these beings with their crude grunting sounds, and they just randomly begin screaming homophobic statments and meme quotes.
The intellectual gap is so massive that it would be irresponsible for me to trust that my own parents have my best interests at heart. They just don't understand that they've birthed a literal demigod, and should answer my every question without resistance or discussion.
And how dare anyone ask me to labor my intelligence by asking me questions. They don't have the attention span to comprehend my answers anyway.
If you are 'un'common like me, you'll understand this frustration. Do not reply to this blog. I'm not asking for advice, opinions, or, god forbid, psychoanalysis.
TL DR, read the whole thing. My greatness demands to be heard.
Need Help From a Gateway Owner [Blog Edition]Mar 15, 2016
Ok, here's the deal. Many months ago I was happily using my gateway, until, the mSD reader on the card went bad. Not a big deal, we have cfw now and i can use cia's instead of roms. So i just formatted the 64gig msd, put it in an sd adapter and have been using it in my 3ds since.
But I had a 100% completion on Resident Evil Revelations (US) and cant transfer it to cia. The GW handles game saves by packaging the save data into a .sav file, named from that game's titleid. This file is unreadable by save managers. The only way to retrieve this file is to make it 'reachable', by renaming it to the titleid used by the GW and mounting that rom in the gw rom menu.
So here's what im asking: Ive already renamed the save to the proper title. I just need someone to take this save, place it on their sd card, open the gw rom menu, mount RE:R (US), without launching the game open savedatafiler or svdt and extract save data from ctr. Then PM me the decrypted save data. If anyone could do this, it would be greatly appreciated. I really dont want to start over.
