I Don't Remember

How long has it been since the last post I wonder, I couldn't remember the last post that I made to this blog here. It is such a shame that this blog was left untouched for at least two years.

I will try to put new contents to this blog site, the designs will stay since I kind of like it because it is nice to see those css thingy, colour picked for the appearance, it is just.... pleasing to my eyes. Although this blog primarily not for me to keep on viewing everyday but for you readers out there, I try to design this blog's appearance to be gentle to look at rather than striking colours.

Slow Upload Speed

I got frustrated when trying to upload objects into thingiverse and it kept failing. Furthermore the speed was horrible by about 7kbps and it dropped.

Reason being was that there's an option called Large Send Offload (IPv4) enabled on my NIC's "advanced" tab.

After disabling this option, I got full speed by about 50kbps speed and successfully uploaded my object. Source are here and I don't recall enabling them in the past. Further reading about LSO are here

Black screen on Waze/Flipboard

I was wondering why Waze goes into black screen after clicking the report button along with Flipboard, after coming back from recently opened apps. I found out that these apps will go into this state on mostly de-odexed ROMs, I did however tried on my stock odexed samsung ROM, xxltc recently released somewhere around January I think.

What came to my surprise was that Waze didn't go into black screen. Rather, it just performs normally. If you're on the de-odexed ROM, chances to get the black screen is quite high. To get the normal behavior, you need to relaunch the app again.

Xxlta instabilities on custom ROM

Last time my phone running on SweetROM v11 (I think), repeatedly having a ROM crash up until I can't go into the normal screens and stuck on the samsung screen only. The only way is to revert back to an older nandroid backup which is quite annoying when these kept on happening until I found a good solution.
