ChevronWP7: Windows Phone 7 unlocker / jailbreak

Windows Phone 7 unlocker released

Today we have an exciting breakthrough for the Windows Phone 7 homebrew community – the ability for anyone to unlock a WP7 device without a Marketplace developer account.

Unlocking allows the sideloading of experimental applications that would otherwise can’t be published to the Marketplace, such as those which access private or native APIs.

We’ve taken the pain out of the process involved and put together a super simple executable that will allow anyone to unlock any WP7 device on the market using a USB cable and just a couple clicks.

This tool is completely safe and reversible for the phone. (The app even allows you to relock the phone.)

v1.0 download mirrors:

* http://walshie.me/ChevronWP7.exe
* http://www.multiupload.com/4T7AYFWLSZ

If you’re encountering a connection error

* Try download/install the following registry key and restart your machine then try again
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsPhone\ProxyPorts]
“DeviceReg”=dword:000069C5
* Try disconnecting, reconnecting and restarting the phone device
* Try closing Zune and restarting the “Zune Windows Mobile Connectivity Service” service (WMZuneComm.exe)
* Close any applications that might be using port 443, such as Skype or Trillian
* Please ensure your device has a “full sync” relationship with the Zune client, not a “guest” relationship

Notes

* Minimum supported OS: Windows XP SP2

As this is our first release, you may run into issues. Please let us know in the comments if this tool worked/didn’t work for you (with relevant system information).

Expect more goodies/tools to be released in the near future.

We look forward to what the broader community can do with this.

Asian Game Badminton Final – Datuk Lee Chong Wei lost to Lin Dan “Super Dan 超级丹”

Monday, November 22nd, 2010 5,195 views

Too disappointed… Datuk Lee Chong Wei 李宗伟 again fail to bring down Lin Dan 林丹. Lee Chong Wei lost to Lin Dan again! 13-21, 21-15, 10-21 no gold for Malaysia in Badminton.

Lin Dan vs Lee Chong Wei 林丹 vs 李宗伟

Super Dan 超级丹 won again this time! Lin Dan beat Datuk Lee Chong Wei in style and yet Datuk Lee tried his best becoming the first Malaysian men’s singles champion in 40 years at the Asian Games but not avail.

Lin Dan salute to his fans in Guangzhou.

Lin Dan just love punching in the air and taking off his shirt to the deafening roars of the home crowd. He just love to show his sexy naked body with six-packs!

I did a live tweet for the Asian Game badminton final yesterday of Lin Dan vs Datuk Lee Chong Wei, you can see how excited the game and most importantly Lee Chong Wei tried his best and I think Lin Dan still the best badminton player in the world even Datuk Lee is world number 1 in badminton now.

Super Dan bags it all

THE world’s most celebrated men’s singles badminton player, Lin Dan of China, finally has it all.

He fitted the final piece of the jigsaw in his immaculate career winnings by nailing the elusive Asian Games title in front of his adoring fans at the Tianhe Gymnasium yesterday.

And “Super Dan” did it in super style, defeating world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei 21-13, 15-21, 21-10 in the final.

And then he celebrated the victory in the only way he knew – letting out a loud cry, punching the air repeatedly and taking off his shirt to the deafening roars of the home crowd.

And he did a little more yesterday after the usual salute. He threw his shoes and sweat-soaked shirt to the delirious crowd.

With the triumph in the Guangzhou Asiad, the 27-year-old Olympic and three-time world champion has won all the major titles on offer in world badminton.

As for Chong Wei, his losing streak against Lin Dan on China soil continued and his hopes of becoming the first Malaysian men’s singles champion in 40 years at the Asian Games went up in smoke.

Punch Gunalan won the last Malaysian gold medal in the event at the 1970 Games in Bangkok.

Chong Wei was too disappointed and distraught to turn up for the post-match media conference. Said team manager Datuk Maijol Mahap: “He is sitting at a corner. The defeat was too disappointing for him.

Please let him be, for now.”

A thrilled Lin Dan, however, took his time to answer all the questions thrown at him.

“I have reached my target.

“I have won all the major titles that a player can win. This is really a wonderful moment for me,” he said.

“Of all the titles that I have won, the 2004 Thomas Cup Finals, however, will hold a special spot for me. It was the beginning of my rise as a player. And the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games was an important one too.”

Although buoyed by his exploits, Lin Dan gave due credit to Chong Wei’s fighting spirit yesterday.

“This is my best Asian Games final. There was pressure on both of us. We played well even though it was so tough. Honestly, I was the lucky one to win.

“I give my due respect to Chong Wei. He really fought very hard today.”

Lin Dan showed he was much superior in the first game with his stronger attack taking him to an 11-6 lead.

Chong Wei came back from the game break with his brilliant deceptive shots to take three consecutive points but Lin Dan replied with a flurry of smashes to extend his lead to 15-9.

The Malaysian tried to break Lin Dan’s momentum but, in his haste, made too many mistakes to hand the game to his pumped up rival.

Chong Wei upped the tempo in the second game as Lin Dan appeared to take his foot off the pedal to allow the Malaysian to force a decider.

Lin Dan was devastating in the rubber game, leading 11-4 at the game break before romping home for the gold medal.

Last year “Everyone Connects (EC)” with bunkface. The song – Through My Window was introduced to the public via the delivery of unmarked envelopes to the media, which only contained a CD with a very, very infectious song, titled ‘Through My Window’.

Everyone was asking the same thing – what is it about, who’s behind it? There were lots of guesses. Fast forward to a week later, it was revealed that the song, which set the whole nation abuzz was sung by local band – Bunkface.

Look how happy it could be if we could help others.

Mr Kau related his experience as a stroke survivor and must be thankful that he could still walk around with assistant right now. I’m proud of myself too as I did try my best to help someone who’s really in need and reward back to the society.

We can’t just work, eat and sleep doing the same routine tasks but without doing something that’s meaningful in our live. It is about channeling the collective energy of the community in helping the less fortunate, disabled and underprivileged in our society.

Always remember this phrase : “Celebrate the past, enjoy the present, create our future.” Thanks for those who supported me in the Car Wash Campaign and to those who donated too.

Sir Richard Branson to serve as AirAsia ‘stewardess’ after losing F1 bet

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010 3,472 views

Haha… So are we gonna see Virgin Group boss Sir Richard Branson dressing up as an AirAsia stewardess? The Kuala Lumpur-London AirAsia flight that Sir Richard Branson serve as AirAsia ‘stewardess’ will be auctioned off, grab yours now!

Branson loses the bet, AirAsia prepares for flight with skirt-wearing billionaire

If you could afford… lol… I bet the whole flight will fill with all millionaires… lol

It’s also a way to make AirAsia become the best talk about Airline in the world. It’s the best marketing gimmick by Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes! Good move there.

Congratulation to Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes for the win! Malaysia really Boleh! =p

Virgin Racing Formula One team owner Sir Richard Branson carries a stewardess before the qualifying session for the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix

PETALING JAYA: It looks like Virgin Group boss Sir Richard Branson will be dressing up as an AirAsia stewardess after all for losing a bet with Lotus Racing team principal Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes over which of their teams would do better in the just-concluded Formula 1 season.

The two men had made a bet at the start of the season in March that the loser must serve as a “stewardess” on the winner’s airline.

Despite both teams failing to score any championship points throughout the season, Malaysian-backed Lotus Racing finished ahead of Virgin Racing in all but two races (in Italy and Singapore).

After the season’s final race at the sensational Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi on Sunday, Lotus finished in 10th spot while Virgin finished last among the 12 teams.

Fernandes said: “It’s time for Richard to start preparing himself for some hard work … and the likely pain of a pair of high heels!”

The date of the Kuala Lumpur-London AirAsia flight has yet to be set, but seats will be auctioned off and the money given to Branson’s chosen charity.

“We have agreed that we will run an online charity auction for the seats on the route to raise money for a charity of Richard’s choice and give fans of both teams the chance to be on the flight.

“The aim is to raise as much money as we can for a good cause … So the discomfort Richard will have to go through will be worth as much as it possibly can be.”

The friendly wager aside, Fernandes was delighted to have achieved the team’s primary target to be the best team among the newcomers.

Besides Lotus and Virgin, the other new team on the grid was the Spanish Hispania Racing (HRT) team, which finished 11th.

“I am completely relieved, completely ecstatic, happy and vindicated in making the decision to go into F1,” said Fernandes, who had the support of Malaysian conglomerates like Naza, Proton and Maxis to bring Lotus back into the premier racing fraternity after a 16-year hiatus.

“To complete 19 races and finish in 10th spot, after having just five months to build the car, is something that is truly magical.”

“This is the first chapter of a long career ahead and we will create our own future, destiny and history from here,” said Fernandes.

Asia Pacific Rally Championship – Proton on the Podium

When I was young I always heard about Karamjit Singh and recon as a professional race driver in rallying, from then I love to watch rally.

2010 APRC China Rally - Proton on the Podium and Cusco take the Asia Cup

Rejoining international rallying after a five-year break, PROTON’s return to the coveted Asia Pacific Rally Championship (APRC) has paid off handsomely when it emerged second in the Manufacturer’s Championship in its first full season.

A one-two finish at the recently-concluded China Rally last weekend by Alister McRae and Chris Atkinson reaffirmed the Malaysian car manufacturer’s resolve, determination and competitiveness in the global rallying arena as it placed itself between the traditionally-dominant manufacturers Mitsubishi and Subaru. Malaysia Boleh~!

As an added bonus, the spirited drive by McRae also earned the Scottish driver third placing in the APRC Driver’s Championship and an even bigger cause for celebration at the PROTON camp.

Victory in China closes PROTON’s international rally campaign for the year on a high after seeing its drivers and the Satria Neo S2000 car endure a series of misfortunes that had often denied the team of more podium finishes. The victory reaffirms the Satria Neo S2000 and PROTON’s competitiveness as a manufacturer on the international rally arena.

Alister and Bill at 1st place.

Chris and Ben at 2nd place.

PROTON had competed in five of the six APRC rounds this year that began with the Rally of Malaysia, Rally of Japan, Rally of New Zealand and Rally of Australia. The team had looked forward to scoring more points in the Rally of Indonesia but the event was cancelled by FIA due to weather condition which was not fit for a rally event. Prior to China, PROTON’s best result was a second place in the Rally of New Zealand.

In addition to the APRC, the Satria Neo S2000 had also competed in this year’s Intercontinental Rally Challenge (IRC) where it went head to head with the likes of more established Manufacturer Teams that included Peugeot, Skoda, Ford, Abarth Fiat, Honda as well as Mitsubishi and Subaru.

Acknowledging that to excel in international rallying requires time, investment and continuity, Dato’ Haji Syed Zainal Abidin said motorsports is one of several key strategies being pursued to establish PROTON as a global brand. Motorsports has proven to be an ideal and cost-effective platform for the company to generate greater brand awareness in the countries it exports its vehicles to. Equally important, it has also provided PROTON the opportunity to showcase the reliability, strength and performance of the Satria Neo.

Asia Pacific Rally Championship - Proton on the Podium

Motorsports builds an emotional bond between car manufacturers and enthusiasts, it helps to inject excitement into the brand or a particular model, it propels sales, it provides a platform in which technology and technical know-how can be used to enhance future road-going models, and as one excels it extends recognition and underlines brand superiority.”

In terms of exposure, both the APRC and IRC events command enormous publicity and television viewers worldwide to promote the PROTON brand globally. The APRC is available to television audiences in over 129 countries and in 2009, reached an audience of 390 million viewers. The IRC meanwhile, is broadcast via Eurosports TV in 59 countries across Europe, Asia, Africa and America reaching 240 million television viewers. In addition, PROTON has also garnered enormous support, interest and following via the posting of updates on its rallies over social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter.

In China, the Satria Neo S2000 stamped its competitiveness by being the only Super 2000 rally car to compete against a field largely dominated by the turbocharged Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and Subaru Impreza rally cars.

In a rally so rough and one that had taken a heavy toll on so many competitors, only 24 of the original 44 starters completed the two-day event held in the mountainous region and bamboo forests just outside of Longyou city. The rally included the participation of manufacturers such as Mitsubishi, Subaru, Volkswagen, Suzuki, Honda, Citroen, Peugeot, Cherry and BYD.

A further stamp of approval to PROTON’s success in China was also the debut of four Proton Gen2s that completed the 229.19km rally. The cars are known in China as the Europestar, under an OEM collaboration between PROTON and Zhejiang Youngman Passenger Car Group Co. Ltd.
