The Walking Dead series and Comic Episodes

Started watching the Walking Dead series last year when it premiered on Halloween night.

Instantly loved it and then started reading the comics while the series is based off the comics and in some ways follows it. The comics are a must read I posted the 1st 5 comics of The Walking Dead here along with the Comic reader I use for my PC & Android device.

If you are gonna use a Android device make sure you have a tablet. Using a small cell phone screen is not very good.

Coby Kyros MID8024 Android 2.3 update (Nefarious Bread v1.2)

Since flashing the 8024 with Nefarious Bread which is using Android 2.3 instead of stock 2.2.

I have lost a few apps that worked on stock which I listed in previous post those are the only ones I personally noticed there could be more that will no longer work.

Will I be flashing back to stock to have those apps working again? NOPE… Because I have much better performance and am completely fine with no longer being able to use those apps. It is an easy update and from what I understand Nefarious Bread is already rooted upon flashing to your Coby.

Netflix now works 100% no need for no device check and market place works flawlessly no more app crashes that would occur using the no root method on the stock 2.2 Android.

Here is where you can get the Coby stock update it also explains how to flash the new update and this also will be the same when updating to Nefarious Bread v1.2.

Coby Electronics Shuts Down, Taking Customer Warranties With It
http://consumerist.com/2013/10/16/coby-electronics-shuts-down-taking-customer-warranties-with-it/
Coby was gone early-mid 2013 the link I posted is old news. But relevant none the less.

Unfortunately the links to Coby’s home page are no longer available.
All other links are working okay.

The links to Coby webpage will still be shown but will not link to anything useful.
For the information that was listed at Coby’s webpage can be found at the usual places.

Also google is a great place to search. Since there are newer tablets available I will not be keeping up on the Coby MID8024.
I’ll do my best to keep the links that I have control over active.

Test post Coby Kyros MID8024 & custom rom Android 2.3

Updated my tablet to android 2.3 and installed wordpress and figured i’d post using the tablet. Pretty cool! Posted rooting the Coby Kyros MID8024 it wasn’t accurate and appologize for that. But since that post Coby released a update for it which means that there is a custom rom released which has allowed the Kyros to use Android 2.3 instead of the stock 2.2.¬† There is a plus side and down side to this custom rom. I’ll post later on this when on computer.

Uncharted 3 & Other things

Good to be back on my blog page again.

Had issues after password was reset.

Was cleaning up our closet a month or so back and found a trashbag full of our old Playstation 2 games. They were headed for donation when my son mentioned that gamestop would take them in on trade figured why not. Ended up scoring almost $110.

After purchasing new headset for the 360 and HAZE for the PS3 we also Pre-Ordered Uncharted 3 I have played Drake’s Fortune & Among Thieves. Drake’s Fortune was an awesome entry into Uncharted it is a great game then Among Thieves was released and this was even better than the 1st game.

The great thing about Uncharted where other games like it fail is the Story and gameplay are consistant. And the characters really grow on you and you¬†really begin to¬†hope that it all turns out good for all of the characters involved with Drake. All of them have a real chemistry and can be heard¬†when listening to the voice acting in game.¬† I hate comparing to Tomb Raider but since they are both fortune hunters it’s hard not to. Tomb Raider ultimately failed after the 1st game¬†every game after got worse and worse until the much later releases of Legend and Underworld and even Underworld is not as good as Legend and both Legend and Underworld can’t come close to any of the Uncharted games.

After releaseing a great 1st Uncharted it was hard to imagine the 2nd would be any better but it was. And now Uncharted 3 is released as of 11/01/11 and although i’m only on Chapter 17 the game is amazing some reviewers¬†say that it’s a good game but not¬†any better than the 2nd.¬†Maybe it isn’t a huge leap forward but it’s just as good and maybe even better and that’s alot for any developer to accomplish.

I only bought the PS3 for the Blu-Ray player at the time it was the better equipment in that price range compared to other Blu-Ray players.

If you don’t own a PS3 you should get it just to play the Uncharted games and even if there isn’t another game you will play on it you still get a solid media /Blu-Ray player.

 

Awaiting on a new tail servo for my 450 i’ve negelected my Rc helicopters for quite some time now it’s beautiful outside in Florida and a good time for me to get them in the air.
