Even though we had approximate dates from very start, I would like to announce official dates when DebConf11 will be held in Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
DebCamp: 25th – 31st July 2011
DebConf: 1st – 7th August 2011
We encourage you to arrive one day earlier (24th July for DebCamp, and 31st July for DebConf), final departure date will be 8th August.
Vacation, it’s in our plans to talk to travel agencies, so for those who wanted vacation after DebConf11 as its participants can enjoy shores of Bosnia, Croatia, Montenegro and Greece by discount prices.
We’re already looking forward your stay on Balkans! :)
Last week I was on my first Ubuntu Developer Summit (UDS-N), I wanted to attended this summit for couple of reasons:
1. Developer, I’m part of Debian Java, working on Eclipse IDE, and as you’re developing Debian, you’re automatically developing Ubuntu, no? :nerd:
2. DebConf11 main organizer, I really wanted to see how it’s all done on “corporate” level, for instance we’re going with hotels instead of student dorms and so on.
3. Migration to Linux infrastructure, make contacts and have some talks on this topic, because after DebConf11 in Bosnia a lot of institution will most probably open doors to open solutions such as Linux.
I went to this summit without any expectations or plans, just said I’ll play it by ear. This years UDS was held in Orlando, Florida before Orlando I was planning to stay in NYC for couple of days, therefor my whole plan was to get to NYC, then Orlando then head back home :-)
I :heart: NYC
I spent couple of days here with my cousins and friends, as always NYC never fails to surprise me, and I’ll always stop by even if it’s only for couple of days ;-) I wanted to meet up with couple of Debian people as well, but unfortunately my schedule was too tight so …
I bought Xperia X10i this summer during DebConf10 in NYC, I loved this phone from very beginning however what bothered me was that it was still stuck on outdated Android 1.6. To get your own custom Android on it, wasn’t quite possible because no one managed to hack bootloader even though some of the guys at XDA where getting pretty close.
Long story made short, Sony Ericsson has finally release their Android 2.1 update, but made it available only for Nordic region, they explained it all on their blog where they also sent a message for “paranoid” users as they called them. I thought, if I gave it all this time I can wait a little bit longer, but then one of my friends (@sahinovic) gave me a good pointer to go in right direction with using custom ROM, Nordic for example? So this is where I got my idea.
I want 2.1 update now!
Please note steps below will get you Android 2.1 update, but AFAIK you’ll also lose your warranty
1. Root your phone
If you don’t have your phone rooted, this can now be done in single click. Get X10 Root and follow instructions on screen.
This is my third video of me while doing my tattoo, hopefully it won’t get removed again due to licensing, because I tried to provide all the necessary copyright. This is its first time showing up on Planet Debian, so I might even hear some criticism? If any please don’t be too harsh on me :)
I’d like to have this one on as some kind of personal “zeitgeist” moment if anything, and I’m definitely not making any other “versions” of this video. I have “why I did it”, and all the other things written in my previous posts related to this video.
