Tips & Tricks // Huawei E160 with OSX Mavericks

I have an old Huawei E160 3G USB Modem from Globe. Which has already been sim unlocked. Works well enough on Windows 7 but had issues with it on OSX Mavericks.

Well here is how you fix that.

1. Download the ZIP file
2. Unzip
3. Install huawei_universal_425_05.pkg to your OSX machine
4. Open Network and add your connection

5. Connect to the interwebs!!!
6. BTW you can also install the bundled app (usually a branded version of Huawei's Mobile Connect) from your 3G USB stick and use that if you don't want to manually input the settings.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
