How many windows devices do you have?

In my office, how many computers runs Unix or Linux.

  • Two computers
    • One runs Linux
    • One runs macOS
    Three cellphones
    • Two runs Android (4.3 and 5.0.1)
    • One runs iOS 9
    One Tablet
    • iOS 9
    PS3 One (good old) Linksys WRG54G
    • Linux

    If I count all my house devices, I need to add two more iPads, one iPhone and one Apple TV.  Windows free home 😆.

Moto Z and Moto Mods review – YouTube

Interesting phone, the Moto Z is beautiful to me, although with some design issues (in my opinion) like the fact that the speaker is in the top front, the exact same speaker you use to hear your calls, I hope it doesn’t start playing a loud alarm when you are in the middle of a call.

What calls to my attention is how pretty and how well designed they are, I definitively will go for the force version because of the battery and the shatter-proof display, having a device that is strong enough so you can avoid a protective case helps a lot because you are seeing the well design device (not just a beautiful one with something on top that hides it).

Lollipop

As you may know, I have Android 5.0 Lollipop installed in my Moto G, I did this 13 days ago and so far thing are going well, the system is responsive and even whit all those animations it is fluid, although there are some parts that I don’t really like.

Lets start with the things that I like.

First, everything is fluid, all animations runs smooth even whit this phone that is not the beast as the flagship models. The material design language adds a lots of animations and those in Kit-Kat were a bit choppy, but with Lollipop they run perfectly at least at 30 fps if not 60. read more

Lollipop at the Moto G

As you may know, I have a Moto G, a great device at a really low price, it has a 720p display that gives you 320dpi, 16GB of storage which to me is more than enough, 1GB of RAM, again, enough; and the latest version of Android. Well, you may have Android 4.4.4 but you can install Android 5.0 by now.

The Brazilian version of the Moto G, the XT1033 (dual SIM) have now the upgrade if you enrolled to the Motorola feedback program, then getting the OTA was just a matter of time.

In order to upgrade to Lollipop you must flash your device with the Brazilian firmware, you need then an unlocked bootloader, but if you are interested (or desperate) enough to install it I guess you already have it unlocked.

What you will need to have:

  • Unlocked bootloader
  • fastboot
  • adb
  • a custom recovery (eg. TWRP)
  • Brazilian firmware from here.
  • OTA Update from here.

What you will need have to do.

  1. Restore the stock Brazilian firmware
    fastboot flash motoboot motoboot.img
    fastboot flash logo logo.bin
    fastboot flash boot boot.img
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    fastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk.0
    fastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk.1
    fastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk.2
    fastboot flash modem NON-HLOS.bin
    fastboot erase modemst1
    fastboot erase modemst2
    fastboot flash fsg fsg.mbn
    fastboot erase cache
  2. Boot the phone and let it build the basic structure of the system.
  3. Reboot into the bootloader.
    1. Press the Power Button and the “Vol Down” button for around 5 seconds, then release them, you should see the bootloader menu.
    Flash the custom recovery
    fastboot flash recovery custom_recovery.img
    Copy the OTA update to the SDCard.

    adb push Blur_Version.210.12.40.falcon_umtsds.Brasil.en.BR.zip /sdcard/ read more
