Processed food will kill you

I almost shit myself when I got home, probably the instant noodles I ate. Looked up to see if it can give you the runs. Found an article about how bad they are for you, and all other processed food.

Not sure that dump was runny, apparently it needed to come out though. Could of been the hot pocket I ate yesterday too.

You have two options, eat processed food, or don’t eat at all. You’ll die either way. Everything at the store is processed. You have to have a farm for unprocessed food. As soon as they process it at the store, it’s processed.

I don’t have a farm, so it looks like I won’t be eating. Also, I wouldn’t kill an animal to eat them. Also, don’t know how to grow vegetables.

Might be a bad idea staying up after 2 am

Yesterday, when I did that, I was in like a trance state or something, before I fell a sleep. I’m guessing parts of my brain went offline.

Felt really weird, like no control. The part of your brain that tells you right and wrong, is gone when feeling like that. You’d probably end up dead or in prison if you don’t sleep. You might be legally insane though.

I stayed up a little after 2 am today, didn’t feel like I did yesterday.

Should be able to get a slab tomorrow

From BuyVM. They posted on a forum, saying tomorrow you’d be able to signup. Better get up when my alarm goes off, so I can order it as soon as possible. Will it be available at 9 am?

Might sell out. Which will be a bummer. I want to use it for my pictures, instead of You can host Piwigo yourself.

iPhone 7 or Nokia 7.1?

The 7 is faster, but costs slightly more for the refurbished one. Screen is smaller, no HDR either. But I can backup my iPhone SE and restore it to the 7. Maybe somebody will give me some money to buy the Plus.

Is the non Plus’s screen big enough? Bigger then the SE. Not sure 4.7" is big enough though.

Well, I’m to lazy to setup a new phone, and the iPhone 7 is faster then the Nokia 7.1. I’ll get the non Plus model.

Only 32 GB, that’s plenty for me. I barely take pictures, and you can delete them, after uploading to Google.

It’s funny how a dual core CPU is faster then Android phones. It’s because the single core sucks, apparently phone apps don’t need lots of cores. Also, Apple’s software is designed for their hardware, Android it’s a mess.

System76 Thelio

You can get it with Ryzen. Intel or AMD. Except for the Massive, that’s Intel only.

Not very cheap, and the cheapest AMD config, comes with a four core eight thread CPU. My computer has 16 threads.

System76 was smart with it though, letting you pick AMD or Intel on two of them. Not everybody wants Intel, or AMD. More sales if you let em choose.

Not completely open. I don’t need a new computer, especially not one that’s over a grand. If it was completely open, I’d be more interested in it.

Why do they let you get it with a NVIDIA card? They don’t have an official open source driver, the one you can get, causes freezing if I remember correctly. It’s reverse engineered. AMD has an official open source driver. And it works great mostly, except for the RC kernels. No freezing with it.

I do like how it looks though. Oh yeah, I think the case design might be open, or is it just the daughter board? If the case is open, I’ll send the CAD files to somebody that has the equipment capable of making it.

The best CPU adds over $200 to the price. But if I did buy it, the old one could be Windows only. No VM, means hopefully no problems. Other then Windows, which is a problem.

Does it have custom drivers? If so, you might have to compile them if using a different distro.

There’s CAD files for the case.

Where was I going to get $350 + tax?

Out of a magic hat? Not much money will be in my checking if I buy a phone for that much. Don’t really want to transfer money from my savings into checking. I’d rather transfer money from checking to savings.

Honor might have a phone for that price too. Not Android One, but might have a better CPU. But then you have to deal with their shitty EMUI ROM. Nope, $500. They have one for $200, but slower then the Nokia 7.1.

Finally lost weight instead of gaining

The iOS app doesn’t say how much I lost. To lazy to do the math. In Android Google fit, says how much you lost or gained. Is everything in iOS half assed?

Good luck finding a case for the Nokia 7.1

You can get an official one in 1 to 3 months. That is completely useless, most people want a case when they buy their phone. Not three months later.

If you don’t buy a case, it’ll slide off something and break.

Does the OnePlus 6T's screen have HDR?

Nothing on Google really says if it does or doesn’t. Apparently the 6 does for YouTube. So it might, but possibly only for YouTube.

The Nokia 7.1 advertises HDR on the screen, it’s slower, and cheaper.

Nice BunnyCDN went offline

Need to delete some stuff from the cache, forgot to black out the serial number of my phone. Won’t do you any good though, warranty voided on it.

No idea if BunnyCDN’s site will be back before I go to bed, it’s just loading forever.

Pretty annoying, when you need to access their site, you can’t.

Their site finally loaded. First got an error saying Firefox couldn’t verify the data.

What kind of username is _______?

If I had a forum, I’d ban people that can’t make a real username. Like people on online games, that have no name. If I ran a game server, I’d ban them too. Get a real name, or leave.

Manjaro emmcdl

You can find it compiled here.

You have to run “export CXXFLAGS=-pthread” in Manjaro and Arch to compile it.

After cloning it’s git, run the below.

git checkout 05a9615a5b70334d14f95fd194b0f34d482d3803

Nothing will work in Windows, USB redirection is to slow.

That doesn’t seem to work in Linux either.

Serial Port No data within five seconds. Resource temporarily unavailable

You also have to run autoreconf and automake.

Based on that message, I’m guessing it doesn’t like my computer.

Don’t use the file some site said, tried with the flasher in the image file from the blankflash. It failed because no XML file. Now to make my own XML file, by copying the one from the site that doesn’t work. XML is fine, the programmer doesn’t work.

Well, flashing gpt worked. That was a test, to see if it’ll even work. You have to do the power button + volume down trick to get it to work, the program will get an error and stop, keep running the command, until it can find ttyUSB0. Using watch -n 1 lsusb might not be fast enough.

Now to find the Python script that makes that file. That’s faster then trying to figure out how to modify the one I have.

Do you need more then GPT? Probably. And the thing I flashed was wrong, you have to extract it. Most likely.

The number of disk sectors is 4294967295, fdisk -l gpt_main0.bin told me so.

Anyone know how to get the ParseGPT Python script to work? I got a partition.xml file, but I still need a rawprogram0.xml.

Going to try using the programmer for my phone, but the other files from the other file. Doesn’t matter if it works, I’m to lazy to make a rawprogram0.xml file.



That’s how you flash gpt_main0.bin, if you use 0 for start, it won’t work. But phone is still dead. Now to see if I can tell what sector the other partitions start at.

Nice! Somehow I revived it, in fast boot. Well, I accidentally flashed gpt_main0.bin to xbl_a. I forgot to change the filename.



If xbl.elf doesn’t work, replace with gpt_main0.bin. Probably should boot TWRP. Don’t think the flashing is going to work. Need the fastboot it came with. No idea how to flash or boot anything. It just hangs.

Plugged it into USB 3.0 hub, “Failed to load/authenticate boot image: Load Error”.

Excellent, got the working fastboot. Now I can run a flash all, or see if TWRP boots now. Yes, it does.

How did I get it to flash the stock bootloader? I already forgot. Just keep messing with it. Oh, I think plugging into the hub made the flashing work.

Apparently qboot doesn’t work in Manjaro. Or on my computer.

I used to get the partition.xml file, which I used the values to make the XML.

I may or may not write a complete how to. And if I do, it’ll probably be on my other site, there’s a how to category on there.

emmcdl -p ttyUSB0 -f programmer.elf -x rawprogram0.xml  -SetActivePartition 0

That’s the command I used. You get the programmer.elf from the blankflash after extracting the image, and you get gpt_main0.bin by extracting gpt.bin that you get from extracting the image.

That is for the Moto X4, that XML probably won’t work for anything else. If you like piecing stuff together, then you should be able to unbrick your Moto X4 with the above info, in Linux. If using Windows, you can probably use QFIL. And qboot might work in Windows as well. Might even work in a different Linux distro. Downgrading the kernel enough could make it work.

The X4 seems to be fully functional, I put my SIM card in, and it got a signal. It shows my WiFi. Didn’t actually connect, I plan on selling it. So I can buy a Nokia 7.1 most likely, you can’t unlock the bootloader, unless that was some other brand. Or they changed something. If the Nokia gets bricked, it’ll be under warranty. Sounds like some Nokia phones can be unlocked, that’s a bummer.
