Verizon iPhone

Hey guys, so as you probably have guessed, I will be getting the Verizon iPhone. I  have my iPod Touch 3rd Gen (32gb) which I use for almost anything and everything. However, I have yet to own a smartphone, so once the iPhone came to verizon, I had my mind set on getting one. Here is the information that is available (most of this is old, but there is also new information: The Verizon iPhone 4 will be a CDMA EVDO based version, with a modified antenna, relocating one of the “gaps” to the top of the phone, and moving the silence/sound switch down a little. The hardware will remain the same inside the iPhone (A4 processor, 512mb of ram, retina display, etc). There is obviously no micro sim slot on the right side of the bezzel, since the CDMA technology is all built inside the iPhone itself. The major news that hit yesterday and today is that Verizon will carry over its $29.99/month data package for unlimited data to the iPhone. However, there is a catch: on the iPhone FAQ page (on verizon’s website), it said that the data package is “available for a limited time” only. There is no information on a date when this “limited time offer” will expire, if it will expire at all, or if they will start a tiered data table only for the iPhone. My guess is that they will create a tiered data package table that will be spread across all the smartphones Verizon will offer, including all Android-based devices, Blackberries, and maybe even basic feature phones. All of this is very unclear and remains in the gray area. Only time will really tell what the packages will end up turning into or if they will change at all.

Asus Hackintosh-Updating to 10.6.6

Hey Guys, I know I have been lacking on posts lately, so I will try to resume more frequently as soon as I get back from vacation on the 17th. Anyway, I had some time on the flight, so I figured out how to update to 10.6.6.

1) If you do not have the 10.6.5 kernel anymore (the 10.4.0 kernel), then go back to my blog and download the link to the package I have hosted. Once you do, move the 10.6.5 Kernel (located within the 10.6.5 Kernel folder) to the desktop.

2) Backup the AppleIntelGMA950.kext, the AppleIntelIntegratedFrameBuffer.kext, and the IO802Family.kextYou can simply just make a folder on your desktop to keep it simple.

3) Run the 10.6.6 Combo Update, but when it prompts you to restart your netbook, minimize or hide the window.

4) Then follow the command line prompts I have said to use, which i will repost below:
*sudo -s (and then enter password)*cd /*mv mach_kernel mach_kernel_1062*cp ~/Desktop/mach_kernel_atom /* mv /mach_kernel_atom mach_kernel*chown 0:0 mach_kernel
The “*” above are not what you type into terminal, they are just bullet points.

5) Go back to the 10.6.6 Combo Update window and click the restart button. Once the computer boots back up, replace the kexts you backed up to the /system/library/extentions folder.

6) Go to the root of your Macintosh HD drive and run pfix. Once this is done, restart your computer and you should be completely updated to 10.6.6
NOTE: Some people are saying that there have been some problems with the Sleep feature on the hackintosh. If you fear that this may happen, I would recommend backing up your SleepEnabler.kext file as well and restoring it with the other kexts after updating.
Hope this helps. Post any comments, questions or concerns and I will reply as soon as I can, as I am away on vacation this week.
