[FRAMEWORK ONLY!] Xposed - ROM modding without modifying APKs (2.3.1)(10.10.2013) - Page 2 Quote: This is an absolutely valid thought. In a way: Yes, it is easier to do something malicious with this. With great power comes great risk. The thing is: How would you prevent that? So what I did was to require that you enable a newly installed module in the installer. And not trying to play this question down, but you could insert malicous code in a theme also when you post a new framework.jar or SystemUI.apk. Or take Superuser. As I said, I'm not denying that there could be a misuse of this project. Tired of updating your mod for every new ROM release?

Sequoia- La forêt apatride Writing Robust Bash Shell Scripts : David Many people hack together shell scripts quickly to do simple tasks, but these soon take on a life of their own. Unfortunately shell scripts are full of subtle effects which result in scripts failing in unusual ways. It’s possible to write scripts which minimise these problems. In this article, I explain several techniques for writing robust bash scripts. How often have you written a script that broke because a variable wasn’t set? I know I have, many times. chroot=$1 ... rm -rf $chroot/usr/share/doc If you ran the script above and accidentally forgot to give a parameter, you would have just deleted all of your system documentation rather than making a smaller chroot. david% bash /tmp/ $chroot= david% bash -u /tmp/ /tmp/ line 3: $1: unbound variable david% Every script you write should include set -e at the top. Using -e gives you error checking for free. command if [ "$?" could be replaced with command || { echo "command failed"; exit 1; } or

[Guide] Decompile with Apk Tool [Easy Way] ## Due to exams I won't be able to reply on questions, there are however many experienced developers active on this thread like @SpaceCaker & @K.A. ## I have seen a lot of guides on how to decompile with Apk Tool, but none are noob friendly, so I thought I would post this. What You Need: ApkTool Java JDK/JRE 32 bit Super Basic Cmd/terminal knowledge (My 5 year old brother can handle this) Download Apk Tool Here: (Must be this one) 4Shared ( Slow and signup eeuww )Mega ( Ah much better ) First you need to extract that zip folder to anywhere you choose, preferably on root of c/drive E.g: C:/android/apktool extracting the files to 'apktool' folder. Now copy the apk you would like to mod into your Apk Tool folder. Command Prompt: Open up your Command Prompt by going to: Start -> run -> type : Cmd Code: Your cmd will probly look like this.. Installing Framework: Now that you are in directory we need to install the device's framework to your system for it to compile correctly so type this: Decompiling:

WordPress Fear Those Tiers Udi Dahan December 2007 Summary: Tiers and networks are not to be taken lightly, in any architecture. Contents IntroductionCanned AnswersBack to the Drawing BoardDistribution Trumps OOConclusionCritical-Thinking QuestionsFurther StudyGlossary Introduction I was horrified: My beautiful tiered architecture was buckling under the stress tests—at one tenth of the expected load of the system. The only redeeming thing about this situation was that I had learned the hard way to do performance tests early in the project; with that skill mastered, I thought that there might still be enough time to save the situation. Since then, I've learned that tiers and networks are not to be taken lightly, in any architecture. Canned Answers I got into architecture by the usual route: rising through the ranks from programmer to team lead; specializing in a field or two (transaction-processing, in my case); eventually, splitting my time among a number of projects.

AI Computer Vision: Scala vs. Haskell vs. Python Functional programming is on the upswing, but should you bet your career on it, or is it a short-lived technology fad? I have long wanted to use functional programming professionally and for the last year I have. Mainly Scala, written in Haskell style, plus some real Haskell programming. Here is my impression of Scala and Haskell compared to my benchmark language, Python. Scala Scala is a functional object oriented hybrid language running on the JVM. Issues It is very complexIt is a kitchen sink languageConfusing to keep Scala collections and parallel Java collections apart Eclipse Plugin Scala IDE for Eclipse The Scala Eclipse plugin is very solid, but not quite as good as the fantastic Java support. Syntax highlighting Code completionDebuggerShows compile errors with explanationRudimentary refactoringJump to definition Monad and Applicative Functor Two very important concepts in functional programming are monad and applicative functor. Scalaz Haskell There is a steep learning curve for Haskell.
