Root Moto G Lollipop xt1033

So I just upgraded to Lollipop 2 days ago and the first thing I have done after the upgrade was to root the phone! I cannot stand being unrooted. So here I’m going to list the steps that I used to root my Moto G xt1033 Asian.

after installing Lollipop you will have the default recovery, most of the time you need to flash a custom recovery before rooting your phone but luckily Chainfire from XDA (@ChainfireXDA) has released an auto root script that can do the job for you within 1 minute which you can download it here.

Step1. Reboot your phone into boot loader.

Step2. Connect your phone to your Computer using USB.

Step3. Move to the Folder You downloaded and extracted the Auto Root Script.

Step4. Open root-windows.bat file, (if you are running Mac or Linux you need to use the other supplied files.)

Thats all! you are now rooted! reboot your phone and enjoy the power of having root access over your device.

 

upgrade rooted moto g xt1033 to Lollipop

well few days ago I received the system update available for my Moto G from Motorola. They supplied the stable OTA update to MOTO G users. Well I obviously could not use get the OTA as I was rooted so I had to flash it with fastboot manually.

Assuming you are rooted then you have your bootloader unlocked so all you need to do is to follow below steps:

(remember to backup your data, you will lose everything by doing it. & this is only tested on xt1033 and the firmware link supplied with this post is only for xt1033 asian model. I do not take any responsibility for the damages that this may cause to your phone.)

Download The Lollipop Firmware for xt1033 from Here and msfastboot from here. Extract both of them in the same folder, reboot into your recovery and connect your Moto G to your Computer, Make sure you have the USB drivers installed.

Open CMD inside the Folder and run following command:

Make sure you dont miss any of the commands, after executing the last one your phone will reboot and boot in Lollipop Firmware. the first time it may take abit long on Moto G Logo. don’t worry and wait.

Thats all, You are on Lollipop now, there are few users reported issues which mostly could be fixed after a factory reset. so it’s suggested after you upgraded your Firmware through the above tutorial do a Factory Reset from the Settings menu.

Enjoy New Lollipop on Your Moto G xt1033.

 

How to solve Lockout caused by CPHULK

nothing is more annoying than when you are locked out from your own server by cPhulk, Well this plugin is to ensure your server protection against bruteforce attacks.

there are many ways to flush cpuhulk blacklist and get into whm again using SSH, but to me the best option was to temporary disable cphulk and then get to WHM and remove my ip address from the list manually.

So if you wanna do it in the way I do it, you must login to your server using ssh and run following command:

by executing above command you basically disabled cphulk service, but you should know it will go back live again in around 8 minutes, so basically you have 8 minutes time to login to WHM and sort of your lockout issue.

 

Entropay suspended my Account due to imaginary chargebacks

entro

it was almost a year that I was using Entropay, not in a big size but for small transactions. All I had done through them was less than 200 bucks within this year. I was using them to make payment to some merchants which I didn’t want to provide them my real card numbers. Anyway on 13th of November after I reached home I found an Email coming from EntroPay in my inbox that is saying “Your Username is (X) and Your Account is Suspended.)

a Developer Review: First 24 Hour with Surface Pro 3

1799810_976274295735623_1145734967_n

it’s Finally here, I’ve got my i7 babe. Could not resist it with any other alternatives. this felt so belonging to me after checking all the reviews. there are tones of articles and videos out there reviewing this machine in different aspects. I’m not a marketer, I’m not associated with any competitor, I’m a buyer who choose this device after months of search for cheaper alternatives providing same performance but at the end I came into this, I loved the design and concept since the first, since they released the first version of Surface Pro, But I never seen myself financially ready to invest around $1700 for this.

Well 2 days ago I ordered it from a Local Company here in Malaysia and got it yesterday, I can say this is bold and beautiful. everything looks prefect, it is not just another version of a product pushing as a new trend just to buy some new clients mind. there has been thought behind aspects of design on this product.

it’s beautiful, I got the type cover cause there was no better protection choice, what I imagined after seeing tones of videos was something not too friendly, I knew it’s good for typing, but I was never sure if it’s good for developing on the go. Well I should say the keyboard is way better than many laptop keyboards. it’s thin but it’s working like a real thing.

the screen is amazing, it’s beautiful and gives you the real feeling of quality. on most of your apps you can see the menus and toolbars are small, very small, But it’s totally readable, with the high resolution on this thing you will not miss a thing. I never expect to be able doing photo editing with this on touch, so it’s fine for me to not be able using touch in some graphical apps like photoshop or programming IDEes. touch meant to be for touch, for browsing, for playing.

I installed everything I need on my Work Station. The battery is amazing, it does not show the remaining battery on hourly estimation, after some search I found it’s because of the instantsleep which requires hyper-v to be off, so there is no power options too but you can simply get them by enabling hyper-v.

it gets hot, when I use heavy apps, running virtual machines and so on, so far it’s fine, even my HP Laptop goes that hot when I’m running those kind of things, I don’t wanna hold this while I’m working on a virtual machine right?

the Pen is Good, Really good, the integration with One Note was broken once I installed Microsoft Office, but it solved as quick as a 10 second restart.

the type cover and the kickstand is not really meant to be used on your chest when you lay down, thats what I used to do always with my asus eee pc always.

Conclusion!

it’s an amazing device, Only thing I can say is that it’s awesome, workable and handy. I love it. it’s expensive, but considering if you can get the same thing from other brands will convince you that it worths it.
