How to transfer files onto your nexus 5 from pc via USB cable

Android phone not showing all files (if any) in my computer when plugged into the usb? read on for a possible fix, this solved a problem for me and my nexus 5.

I just bought and recieved my new Nexus 5, but unfortunately I had to search for hours the best way to transfer files and songs from my PC to my Nexus 5, because It just would not show up in my computer when it was plugged in and people were saying they stopped suppporting USB Mass Storage mode in the latest update and all sorts of things, but I have now figured it out.

My phone would connect to my PC in Camera (PTP) mode, but I could only see two folders available and couldnt add or remove files. So for this to work, first on you nexus 5, go to settings, storage, click on the three dot option button at the top right, then USB Computer Connection. Then set your device to MTP Mode if it is not already.

1 – Go to your PC, ofcourse making sure your Nexus 5 is connected with the usb cable, I am running windows 7 but hopefully this will work for you. In windows 7, click on the start button and search for “device manager”. In windows 8, right click the bottom left corner of the screen in desktop mode, and press device manager or search device manager from the usual search box (CTRL-C?)

1

2 – Find where your android device is and click on the dropdown arrow next to it if there is one as shown (1.) In the picture below

3 – Either right click on the ADB interface and click “update driver software” or left click and then press the update driver software button at the top of the window, as indicated by (2.) in the picture below (and No I have no idea why my (LG) Nexus 5 is showing up as a samsung device, I uninstalled the samsung drivers but its still there so oh well)

2

4 – Click “Browse my computer for driver software”

5 – Click “Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer” and select USB Composite Device” from the list, and press next.

Your nexus 5 should now show up in my computer after about 10 seconds of the process being completed depending on your PC and how long it takes to update the drivers.

Hopefully this helps you as much as it helps me c:

How to jailbreak iPhone 3G any firmware untethered

Note that I wrote the following tutorial for beginners to to make it easy so sorry if I sound a bit simple at parts 😛

Hello, in this post I will show you how to jailbreak your iPhone 3G (making this for a friend). I have a jailbroken iPad 2, iPhone 4, etc… But today I screwed up my iPhone 3G (yes i still use it) 🙂 so while I’m jailbreaking it again I thought I would explain it. It actually took me a while to find a version of redsnow that is compatible with the iPhone 3G about 2 or 3 years ago 😛 , so let’s get straight into it:

What you will need:
• Resn0w which can be downloaded here

(save it and extract the .zip to your desktop)

• The IPSW for whatever version iPhone you have. To see what version you have go to settings (on your iPhone) general, about and scroll down to Version. I have 4.2.1 so I need to download the IPSW for 4.2.1. To do that, go to felixbruns.de and click on iPod firmware

Now where it says iPhone in the second drop down box, scroll down to iPhone 3G followed by your firmware version. So for me I would select this one because I have an iPhone 3G on 4.2.1.

Save this IPSW to your desktop where you extracted redsn0w

Now we have everything, let’s get started.
Go to where you extracted redsn0w (mine is on my desktop)
Right click and make sure to “open as” ->;;;ADMINISTRATOR!

right click on redsn0w.exe and select “run as administrator” and allow

Now redsn0w will open. click “browse
” and select the .IPSW file you downloaded earlier

Click “open”

It will say processing firmware and a bunch of other stuff, just wait till it says IPSW successfully identified and hit next. More loading…
Then choose the addons you want. DON’T UNCHECK CYDIA. I am just going to have install cydia, enable multitasking, and enable home screen wallpaper checked. Then click next.

Now plug your iPhone into your computer, THEN hold the power button and turn it off, THEN click next and follow the instructions on the that page. If you miss it or just want to see what needs to be done on the next step then click next, read what you have to do then click back and next when your ready.
(this step puts your device in DFU mode) sorry if thats confusing, comment if your stuck.

Once redsn0w says jailbreaking… Waiting for reboot etc you can let go of the home button. Your iPhone will now show lots of “random” words etc and then this:

Wait for your phone to reach the slide to unlock screen.

Redsn0w should now say “done” on your computer and you can now click finish.
Open Cydia from your SpringBoard (there will be an app for it) to finish the setup.

That’s it! Enjoy your now jailbroken iPhone 3G

After jailbroken:

How to reset your iPhone/iPad/iPod home button

How to make your iPhone/iPod/iPad Homebutton feel like its new.

My friend showed me this and I couldnt believe it so I thought I would upload I for others to see.

Does your home button get stuck, is hard to press or just doesn’t have that new click anymore? Well heres how to reset it. (trust me it 100% works but I have only ever tried it on an iPhone 4)
1- go to ANY app that came PREINSTALLED on your device. I use the weather app.
2- Once in the weather app hold the power/sleep button until it comes up with slide to power off. DON’T slide to power off.
3- Hold the home button until it exits to the home screen.

And there you have it! It might not work for everyone but I DEFINATELY noticed a difference and my iPhone now feels like when I just bought it.
Thanks for reading! 🙂

Minecraft iphone mutiplayer not working?

People were asking so i thought i might aswell make a short post

EDIT: If you want to leave a comment asking a question that is fine but I need information to help you troubleshoot, such as, are you playing on the full game (have you bought it) or are you using the free version. Is it updated to the latest version, what ios/android version are you on etc. Most of the problems seem to be with the iPhone version because I haven’t seen many people with problems on android, if any at all.

Please note that multiplayer on the minecraft app is multiplayer ONLY over LAN. This means you CANNOT play online, only with a friend who also has the app and is connected to the same WIFI as you. Hope this clears some issues up 🙂

Also I have updated this post mentioning android as they are pretty much the same however they are different devices in the way they are programmed to run the app and so the problem might not be the game but compatibility with your android phone, to the minecraft app, to your wifi.
Hopefully that makes sense but I’m sure any problems with the app will be fixed in future updates (which is annoying because there are hardly any)
And I’m no android guru but I know my way around any phone as soon as I pick it up 😀

If your minecraft (pocket edition) multiplayer doesnt work, eg: you cant join a friends game:
•Go into options in the minecraft app and make sure it says server is always visible. This is set to the on position by default and you can also change this setting later through the pause menu in-game
•make sure that the iphones/ipods/ipads or android phones/tablets your playing on are connected to the same WIFI network
•update your game to the latest version via the app store or android market
•make sure each person has a different name
•you cannot play over 3G at the moment
•if your WIFI uses a network proxy with a login it wont work (thats how it is now and probably wont change in future app updates)

I will update the list as i find more possible problems

Any other unlisted or unfixed problems leave a comment or Email me and i will do my best to help you out 😀
