Download flappy bird here!

As this game has been removed from the playstore...

I took the time to help my fellow readers and upload the apk to my drobox accout.

I'm not buying flagship phones anymore.

By the time the samsung galaxy s2 (i9100) where released to the market... I did what I could to get my hands on one of these devices. Everything that kick ass about android started with this phone.

  • First one with multi-cores processor
  • first one with 1 gb or ram
  • and I don't remember what else on the list....
however, the point is that this phone was a milestone for Samsung and Google.  And based on the success of the S2, the S3 kicked ass as well as the S4.  So I ended with an S4 Google play edition...and the S2 where given away to my mother...

... on Wednesday evening.. .I dropped the S4  and the LCD got cracked... It didn't matter the expensive protective casing... LCD cracked and the phone is unusable.

As I live in the Republic of Panama, the i9505 is not the S4 of this market... which means no spare parts available.

Coreboot on the chromebook

Do not ask me why; because I haven't actually found a good reason, but I've decided to install John Lewis coreboot on my slackware running chromebook.

The process is fairly simple (scary as it could brick your device), and  smooth... however, immediately everything broke on the software level.

I tried 2 times to fix the boot sequence of my gpt formated drive with no luck.... so without hesitation I formated and installed slackware 14.0 from a bootable usb drive.. and then realized I had a customized 3.4 kernel with all drivers provided by chromeOS.. now I had a 3.2 something I think with no trackpad and some other hardware support … nothing that a quick update/upgrade didn't fix.
