LunchCast – Droid and Flash 10.1

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

Want to install Froyo Leak on your Droid? Visit Droidlife.

Casey has installed Froyo leak – Android 2.2 and flash 10.1 on his phone.  He is able to watch all the youtube videos now.  However a lot of sites still don’t come up.  It could be that they redirect to a mobile version of there website, without flash.  He also tried Hulu.com and a message indicated that he isn’t licensed to view videos on Hulu.com.  Maybe it thinks he isn’t in the USA.

Want to tether your droid phone via wifi?

  2. Re-Activate your phone – *228
  3. Install barnacle on the phone.
  4. Prevent OTA update of your phone.

LunchCast – Tether your Droid to the iPad or any PC

Wednesday, April 7th, 2010

Don’t want to wait for the iPad to come out with the 3G data service? Want to use your existing iPad on the internet while you are on the road or traveling? Own a droid and want to use it’s data to access the internet? If you answered yes to these questions, then I have an answer for you.

On your Droid, download the app called Barnacle Wifi Tether.
Since this is all new, you will need to take care and follow the directions carefully.
You will need to root your Droid to allow the app to run. Since the Droid was upgraded to version 2.1, you may need to take extra steps in rooting the Droid.
What does rooting the Droid do? It allows you to gain access to the phones operating system and make changes to it. Since some of the features are turned off by default, rooting the Droid will give the Barnacle app access to turn the required features on so can share your data. Be aware that rooting the droid may break your contract with your cell phone provider. You can always restore your phone back to the non-rooted state if you need support on your phone or if you want to be compliant again.

Sharing your data with other devices can consume your data faster then just running off of the Droid. You will need to watch this so you don’t exceed your plans limits and get charged extra by your cell phone provider.

Here are the steps that you need to make this work:
1). Backup your phone
2). Root your Droid
3). Install Barnacle Wifi Tether
4). Start the Tether
5). On your iPad, go to settings, wifi, and look for the Droid and connect to it.

Happy tethering!.
