Bored with Galaxy S4 stock apps? wanna have a refreshing UI and features of S5? download APK here

Image

The new Apps include S Note, WatchON (this has not included Malaysia and Singapore yet), S Health, S Translator, Calculator, and Gear Manager.

You’ll need a Samsung device running Android 4.4.2 and some of the new leaked APK’s will require the old version to be uninstalled, which you’ll need to be rooted in order to do.

You can download apk from here:

  1. S Note
  2. Samsung Watch ON
  3. S5 Calculator
  4. Gear Fit Manager
  5. Galaxy Gear Manager
  6. S Translator

The new updated TouchWiz was heavily focused on during the Galaxy S5 launch as being redesigned with new flatter looking icons and UI in order to bring it more inline with the look and feel and Android. With these leaked Apps you’ll be able to see for yourself what the new TouchWiz looks like on your older Galaxy device.

How to Overclock iPhone 3G, 3GS, and iPhone 4 to 620MHz

The reason I took the risk to modify the clock speed is
simple 🙂 I will be saying farewell to iPhone. Samsung galaxy S II will be my
next toy. The hardware specification is the best in the market at this moment
(JUNE 2011). It is the best ever performance phone.

I have successfully tested the overclocking and it works
well, I suggest overclock to 533Mhz if you wish to maintain good battery level.
As you can tell iPhone 3G is about maybe 2 years plus? or more? and obviously
the batttery isnt as good as before. At 600 MHz, i have not encounter any
problems or heating problem. GPS software works much smoother with no lag. This
even works on iOS 4.0 – iOS 4.2.1

For your information

iPhone 3G has 620 MHz (under-clocked to 412 MHz) ARM
1176JZ(F)-S Processor. Apple has UNDER-CLOCKED the processor, so we are not
actually overclocking, we just optimized the processor.

iPhone 3GS has 833 MHz (under-clocked to 600 MHz) ARM
Cortex-A8 Processor

iPhone 4 has 1 GHz (under-clocked to 800 MHz) Apple A4
Processor

OK here is the main course

Step by step Instruction

1: SSH into your iPhone open file name fstab which can be
found at /private/etc I suggest you the “fstab” file. I have rename
fstab to fstab(ori)

2: Open up fstab in TextEdit (Mac) or Notepad.

3: Add the following lines:

su

alpine (default password)

sysctl -w
hw.cpufrequency_max=XXX000000 (Replace XXX with the MHz Eg: 533, 600)

sysctl -w hw.cpufrequency=XXX000000
(Similar as above)

sysctl -w
hw.cpufrequency_min=YYY000000 (Replace YYY with the MHz during sleep mode)

 

Add the above before the existing line1 and line2:

/dev/disk0s1 / hfs rw 0 1

/dev/disk0s2 /private/var hfs rw 0
2

Before you save the file make sure it looks like the
following. In this example I overclocked it to 600 MHz. This is similar to
iPhone 3GS speed! (833 MHz (under-clocked to 600 MHz) with ARM Cortex-A8
processor.

 

su

alpine

sysctl -w
hw.cpufrequency_max=600000000

sysctl -w hw.cpufrequency=600000000

sysctl -w
hw.cpufrequency_min=475000000

/dev/disk0s1 / hfs rw 0 1

/dev/disk0s2 /private/var hfs rw 0
2

4: Reboot your iPhone

AS USUAL, DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK…

enjoy!!! and remember to say thank you 🙂

How to overclock iPhone CPU

After overclocking iPhone or iPod Touch your iDevice will be faster and more efficient. We stress however that the operation is dangerous and might brick your iPhone too. In order to unlock the functionality, follow our guide to overclock your iPhone.

Steps to Overclock or increase CPU Speed of iPhone and iPod Touch

Step 1. Navigate to System/Library/System/System Configuration/PowerManagement.bundle/

Step 2. You will see a file named “com.apple.SystemPowerProfileDefault.plist”

Step 3. Instead of editing, you are just rename it to “SystemPowerProfileDefaultbak.plist” so the device does not recognize it.

Step 4. Do a reboot and you overclock your iPhone.

Increasing the clock speed can cause the CPU’s lifespan reduce and is therefore not recommended. Do at your own risk. I will not be held responsible for bricking your iPhone.

Mafia Wars Cheats up to trillion of dollars

mw1mw2Mafia Wars? Ya it is popular in facebook and now in iPhone..
Play this game if you have retired, or if you have too much time to kill..

Wanna impress your friends? Here I have found the glitches.. the game is kind of time base, where your energy and stamina will be an incremental based on time,… yes time? which means seconds, minutes, hour, day and month and year. THis is how you trick the application by changing the date and time in your iphone.

It is been done by advancing the date from the current date
or
going back furthest up to 1970 and change the date in yearly increment. After every new dates applied, play a few games like buying properties or fight or look for jobs.

The key to the glitch is
1) to sync after you’ve made the glitched changes
2) delete the app from your iPhone
3) then re-sync and reinstall.

Another way is
1) to do what ever you want to increase the money in your account
2) once satisfy set the date and time to the current
3) You’ll notice that your money, energy, and stamina regeneration is a messed up. We’re going to fix that in the next steps.
4) Connect your iPhone to your PC and sync it.
5) On the iPhone delete the Mafia Wars application.
6) Connect to your PC and sync again, re-selecting Mafia Wars so it re-installs.
7) Disconnect, open Mafia Wars and your game is back to normal, but you’re now making loads of cash.

Have fun cheating!
