Although a bit late, I recently finished watching Pandora Hearts (for some weird reason I only watch animes after they finish airing with some exceptions).  I really enjoyed it, and it’s up there on my list of favourite animes.

  • Story
    pandora hearts first episodePandora Hearts is set in an older European world ruled by the Four Great Duke Houses.  The main character, Oz Bezarius (I’ve seen it spelt Vessalius as well), is from one of these houses (evidently the Bezarius house).  The first episode starts off with Oz fooling around and hiding from his servants as they frantically search for him to prepare for his coming of age ceremony, giving it a light and comedic mood.  However, once at the ceremony he steps under a frozen clock, starting it again which fulfils some sort of prophecy.  He is then attacked by three cloaked characters, who throw him into the “Abyss”, an alternate dimension…

2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 36,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 13 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Installer 4.0 Returns for iOS4.3.3

The world’s first 3rd party App Store, Installer, has been successfully ported to iOS 4.3.3 and below by Infini-Dev Team according to a blog entry on their web site.

Installer was the original jailbreak App Store long before Cydia, Icy and Rock joined the scene, and is now being ported to more current versions of iOS with a version available for download right now. Ironically, the download is done via current jailbreak App Store kind, Cydia.

Yesterday we had success “porting” Installer to 4.3.3 and below.
Installer was worlds first 3rd party app store, Introduced by NullRiver, or later known as RipDev.
RipDev was awesome at Installers, they also made Icy, Hood, and other apps.
Icy is also ported by us, and released 1 month ago.

Installer’s inner workings are slightly different to those of Cydia which means current repositories will unfortunately not work with the new-old comer to the scene. What this means is until new repositories begin to come online, the store’s usefulness is limited.

Installer works with a different system than Cydia, that why you won’t be able to add a Cydia repo into installer.
As we speak we are working on a new community source for installer only, which means you will be able to install things via installer.
We could use help, you may help us by submitting apps that where hosted by installer, or apps that have the installer structure. Or by making app with a installer structure.

For those still eager to download and try Installer though, just follow these easy steps and you’ll be good to go in no time.

1.Jailbreak your iOS device (instructions here), but you did that already didn’t you?
2.Fire up Cydia and add the following repository: http://fr0stdev.co.cc/repo
3.Search for ‘Installer’ and install it
4.After a swift respring you should be golden
5.Once installed tapping the Installer icon should allow you to browse the apps already available, with new ones presumably being added.

For those who remember the early days of jailbreaking iPhones and iPod touches, Installer is a welcome walk down memory lane. The fact it’s actually useful is a real bonus!

Why Should You Jailbreak Your Device?

Jay Freeman (saurik), the developer of Cydia, explains why.

Apple Now Field-Testing iOS5

App Store developer FutureTap just revealed that they have received their first crash report from an iOS 5 device. This means that Apple is currently field-testing their next-generation mobile operating system that runs on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch with applications from the iOS App Store. The application apparently crashed in iOS 5 due to the MKUserLocationBreadCrumb. Developer Will Strafach (Chronic) let us know that this API relates to the iOS maps and location functionality.

Just received the first iOS 5.0 crash report. MKUserLocationBreadCrumb sounds interesting.

This could possibly mean that Apple changed up some map and location APIs in iOS 5, causing issues with map-based applications built for current versions of iOS 4. iOS 5 is expected to take on some new cloud-based features and will be officially unveiled at Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference in early June. Apple is expected to release iOS 5 in September alongside the fifth-generation iPhoneThanks, Peter Silie!

For free, all players will get access to three “refurbished” space ships from the original Galaxy on Fire in addition to a personal space station where you can store multiple space ships and cargo. The Valkyrie portion of the update is an add-on available via IAP which includes a new storyline (with voiceovers), as well as new ships, weaponry, and improved equipment. There’s also new planets, and a “black market trading system” which we’re anxious to try out.

iPhone 4S/5?

BGR’s T-Mobile iPhone prototype leak from earlier today is not simply an iPhone 4 packed with guts that support the T-Mobile 3G network radios, but it also carries the A5 processor from the next-generation iPhone.

The ‘N94′ prototype build (above) is the exact iPhone build that we found carries an A5 or ‘S5L8940′  processor a few months ago.

…and the iPhone 5 (N94AP), has the same S5L8940 processor as the iPad.

That makes last week’s story pretty convenient…

Remember that ‘iPhone 4S’ we told you about? That’s the prototype iPhone with an A5 processor that game developers are using to prepare their iPhone 5 apps.  That sounds a lot like this phone.

The only question now is if that is a prototype ’4S’ or ’5′.
