Google Maps v2 Integration on Android

Integrate Google Maps API into a new Android Project

This post will show you how to integrate the Google Maps v2 in a new Android Project. I’ve learnt that without proper guidance, it can be quite daunting to do. I had to dig in several posts to be able to get it to work properly and more importantly, understand every concept and steps. You should have some basic Android knowledge to be able to create it; i’ll try to be as detailed as possible to explain the integration.

First of all, create a new Project in Eclipse. I named my Project “GoogleMapsAndroidV2” and package name “com.example.googlemapsandroidv2“. Note your package name somewhere, you will need it afterwards. Read more…


Hacking WEP (on an Orange Livebox)

Hack WEP using Backtrack 5 and gerix

So, you forgot your WEP key and you can’t recover it or you simply wanna hack into your neighbor’s WiFi :P. In short the situation is – your terminal can detect the “secured” WiFi network but it can’t connect to it because you need the key. WEP (and WPA too) has already been hacked long ago, yet people still use it! There already exists tons of ways on how to do it, just google it. I am just going to explain the way i did, which i found to be the simplest one yet. All you need is to download BackTrack 5. You can install it on your PC, but it is simpler to just create a bootable Live USB using UNetbootin. I assume you booted Backtrack 5 (from USB or otherwise) successfully at this point. Read more…

Primer on program disassembly and intel x86 assembler

An intro to disassembling C program and using a debugger (in Linux)

First of all, I assume you have some basic knowledge of the C Programming language, Linux (or any UNIX based OS) and using a shell. Knowing how to code in C is most of the time enough to make you a decent programmer. You don’t usually need to understand all the inner workings of the CPU to make the program run. Ignorance is bliss. But if you are like me- who want to get a bigger picture of what is happening inside your machine, then reading this post will help you get a better idea. If you want crack or exploit programs, then these are the basic set of skills you need to master.

You need to realize that C code is meant to be compiled. The code can’t actually do anything until it’s compiled into an executable binary file. Thinking of C-source as a program is a common misconception that is exploited by hackers every day. The binary a.out’s instructions are written in machine language, an elementary language the CPU can understand. Read more…

The Start-Run Command in Windows

July 17, 2010 2 comments

The Run command line in Windows is used primarily for opening things. It is so much quicker to open things this way instead of going though a myriad of interfaces and menus to open what you want. The run command line is very rarely used which is a pity, as it is often the quickest way to launch programs or to open folders and documents. You should remember which commands are available to you but you don’t have to know everything of course, just the essentials. With frequent usage you will remember them easily. In this post i’m show you how to open applications, folders and adding your own application you want to start from your custom made Run command. Read more…

Looking forward to study Computer Science at UoM? Well, it’s your lucky quarter! Read on…

Post Updated on 23-Jul-10

Here is a post i’ve been wanting to do. I just completed my first year in BSc Computer Science. So, i thought, why not share it to you guys and gals? Then i thought, what to actually share? Am i going to briefly describe the course? Give an overview of the each module? Give you tips? Insider news? Well i am not going to give you just the taste of it, but also all the sauce and flavor served with it and ingredients to tackle it successfully. Note that the appropriate target audience for this post is (1) person contemplating doing CS at UoM, (2) You are a newcomer and need a guideline, (3) You wanna jump into the IT field ’cause you read some nice job ads, (4) You are a computer geek and wanna learn some formal stuffs, (5) You have nothing else to do and curious by nature, (6) You’ve heard there’s gonna be a lot of hardcore Math and you’re scared shitless. 😆

Welcome to the new, exciting, University life. This isn’t college anymore. Gone are the days of afternoon tuitions! Forget your A-Level results. Good or Bad, just forget it. It doesn’t matter now. Who cares for your A-Level result when you will be working as a Software Engineer for instance. It is your skills at work which counts. This is on what your employers will assess you. You are now grown up and need to be more self-dependent. You’ll have to do lot of work on your own and don’t expect your lecturers to spoon feed you. Just scroll down at the bottom of this post and look at the figures for number of failures. Yes, it won’t be easy and you’ll be spending a few sleepless nights as well! If you input just the right amount of effort, your output will be successful. If not, then you will need to do some debugging :). OK, your first bookmark should be the Read more…

Eset Login’s Viewer (made by me!)

July 10, 2010 1 comment

Screenshot of the application

Here is a nifty little tool i first made in 2007 and updated in 2008 using VB6. It allows you to get new login data for ESET. This is a very famous application in the underground internet world and hanging for quite a time now! Well not that underground after all cause its very easily google-able and is found in almost every other warez boards and torrrent website. Please be advised that IT IS NOT A CRACK!

It simply loads a website which regularly post new logins(username/password) for ESS and EAV. The program just make use of the webbrowser control in VB6 which loads the webpage. I added some buttons and features to it.

For you trivia buffs, When you will click on About you will see the **MADE IN MAURITIUS** text lol :P. Just making our little country famous on the Internet lol.

Btw, i wish to thank digitox who help me with this app! 😛

It goes without saying that if you really like the software please buy the legit thing and support the developers. (You might happen to be one someday!)
