ClockworkMod Recovery is being used for recovery of ROM images, full backup tool for your devices, and rooting tool just to name a few. This tool has become indispensable to Android enthusiast running a variety of devices and to those people who wants to upgrade downgrade their devices at will without the need of going to service centers. With this tool and a proper knowledge on how to use it properly anybody who are initiated can easily update their devices to the latest ROM’s or downgrade it to the oldest available stock Rom. On this post I would like to share the procedure on installing the ClockworkMod recovery tool for the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 running on the ICS Stock ROM 4.0.3.

Upgrading your Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (GT-P3100) ICS (4.0.3) to the new Jelly Beans (4.1.1)

Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 comes with the ICS stock rom 4.0.3, this is currently upgradeable to Jelly Beans 4.1.1 via Kies OTA update from Samsung. However Jelly Beans update is only partially available officially on the Wi-Fi device on selected countries. The 3G version of this update recently leaked from Samsung servers in India for the base firmware P3100DDBLH3 this is just a test release and may still improved when Samsung finally release the official version. If you are too keen try this on your device to experience the performance enhancement offered by Jelly Beans and the Android Project Butter then now is your chance to try it even before it becomes publicly available to the majority of Android folks.

This update requires a very specific version of the firmware P3100DDBLH3 for (GT-P3100) so make sure you have it in your device before flashing the OTA update. If you don’t have it, it’s still possible to upgrade your device by flashing the base firmware first (this will essentially replaced your base firmware so it can be flashed with the OTA update) and then proceed on flashing the OTA update:

Setting Up XAMPP with SSL on Virtual Host in your Windows 7 Development Machine or Linux

XAMPP for Windows comes built in with SSL certificate for development use, the only thing that you need to do is to enable it to work with your Virtual Host to duplicate development setup in production environment. Setup of production and development machine is almost exactly the same except that the certificate for the production that you will need to use should be coming from a trusted SSL certification authority.

The default SSL on XAMPP only works by default in our localhost so it is accessible via https://localhost/any-directory-inside-htdocs.

To Make it work in Virtual Host Setup we need to do four things.

1. Configure httpd-vhosts.conf to work with standard virtual host http access at port 80.
-A detailed explanation on how to do step 1 is here: http://www.eg-designstudio.com/2009/01/14/configuring-apache-server-for-development-to-mimic-production-setup/

Open SSH Authentication with Cygwin and Putty

Secure shell authentication (SSH Authentication) can be used by client to connect to a server remotely with encryption enabled. SSH or secure shell access offers a convenient way to access the servers terminal securely, however it becomes annoying if we need to type the password every time we need to connect to a server especially if we have a strong password in place. Doing it automatically offers a convenient and secure way to access our servers.

We can do this using OpenSSH if you have a Linux machine or Mac then by no means you already have it in your system. This article focus primarily in using OpenSSH via Windows machine, I just included the Cygwin to do this but it can also be done by using Putty alone.

So to start with, lets define what do we mean:

* Client: the system one types directly on, such as a laptop or desktop system.

* Server: anything connected to from the client.

Some precautions don’t allow your root account to do this, you can always run sudo command to perform administrative task. To do this of just add a user to the wheel group in Linux system to allow them to become

Our Latest Development Work is Out

Our latest development work for CabOperator Company Limited United Kingdom is out (http://www.caboperator.co.uk). Our booking system solution created for Cabsites an online marketing solution for private hire industry conceptualized by CabOperator is launched finally after 4 months of development work. The system which is developed using CakePHP framework provides an automated transaction logging, vehicle and driver management, automated user transaction notification and back office alert and one click driver and vehicle assignment. A user of the system will benefit for its ease of use, it tracks the users frequently visited places for convenience and automatically pulled it down from the list of destinations if a user opt to do so these records can be easily removed by deleting it in their profile. It also provides them of transaction logging and automatic dispatch email at the start of transaction and up to the confirmation of their bookings request.

For the back office users it provides them of automatic alert notification that a transaction has been requested by a user and an action is required for them to process the users request by assigning the type of vehicle requested and the driver assigned to fetch the user. A copy of the vehicle assignments is sent to the user including the type vehicle requested, the color of the vehicle, the plate number and the name of the driver assigned which makes all transaction fully automated.

Developing PHP with Netbeans IDE 6.5 PHP pack

This tutorial will enable you to setup a PHP Development Environment using Netbeans IDE 6.5 PHP pack (Early Access for PHP) under Windows XP. First, we need to download the tools that we need. Next, we need to have a server configured to run with PhP and database support. The easiest way would be to use a pre-configured package that uses Apache as a server, MySQL and PHP, one reliable distribution that I’m frequently using is the XAMPP packaged which can be dowloaded here. We also need the JAVA Developer KIT (JDK) freely available from Sun Microsystems, and the Netbeans Early Access for PHP. For debugging purposes we need to have the Xdebug extensions for PHP download the client and the modules that corresponds with your PHP version.

To configure our environment run the XAMPP setup, select an arbitrary directory which is more convenient for you, mine is configured to run under F:\Development\xampp\, after installing XAMPP check if it’s running start the XAMPP Control panel and check the services status Apache and MySQL should have a running Status. If not troubleshoot your setup usually you have a conflicting services that uses port:80, i.e IIS server if it happens either stop IIS or change the port used by Apache under your Apache\conf\httpd.conf look for the entry ServerName localhost:80 change the port number for it to work then start Apache. If everything else is alright the server is accessible by typing http://localhost or [http://localhost:portnumber] in your browser. Proceed configuring Apache Security this is self explanatory.
