How to Root an Android Phone

There are times when people who constantly use their Android phones complain of it being slow and old. It is therefore often suggested by experts to root phones in circumstances like these.

There are several advantages of rooting the Android phone. First and foremost, it results in a real performance boost. By resulting in a better experience as well, the phone becomes more active. The new windows open without taking forever to load and the multi part home screen doesn’t go slow while swiping between screens. Secondly, many Android devices come with heavily capable hardware the performance of which is limited by the OS. Thus the OS proves to be the hindrance; however by the help of rooting, this hindrance is removed and the Android would be able to function at its best.

For instance, overclocking the CPU of a device is fairly simple; however the OS doesn’t allow it natively. Rooting is the only procedure through which over clocking can be done. Another advantage of rooting the phone is gaining access to features like Live Wallpapers, which are mostly unavailable with the incompatible software in new Android phones. Not only this, the rooting of your device can also enable you to share your cellular data connection with your laptop or PC, through a WiFi or Bluetooth tether.

Thus, the phone can be modified in a way that corresponds to the user’s liking. However, by being in the hands of inexperienced users who do not follow proper instructions, it is often modified incorrectly.

Instructions to root an Android Phone

While rooting an Android phone, great care and precautions are required as it generally voids the phone’s warranty. Go through the following steps to root an Android phone.

Step 1: The first step requires charging your phone enough to ensure that the battery is at 100% capacity. In these cases, it is preferable to charge the battery overnight.

Step 2: To allow installation of non market applications, you need to change the settings. For doing this, go to the ‘Settings’ option and then select ‘Applications’. Under ‘Applications’, choose ‘Unknown Sources’, that should light up the green check mark.

Step 3: Now open your browser and then go to the Cyanogen Recovery Flasher mirror site. Download the file, open it and then click on ‘Backup Recovery Image’. After that, click on ‘Flash Cyanogen Recovery 1.4’.

Step 4: Power the phone down and then reboot into recovery mode. It can be done by simultaneously pressing the ‘Home’ and ‘Power’ keys, and then the phone is rooted.

Step 5: Download a custom ROM of your choice to your SIM card and apply it through the instructions as above to install it.

As mentioned earlier in the article, you are required to familiarize yourself before following the instructions, as casually rooting the Android phone would only add to your problems. Also, the consequences of every action must be carefully studied by going through the literature that generally comes with the phone.

How to maintain your family schedule using an Android phone

Having a huge family may make it difficult to manage and maintain your daily schedules; more importantly keeping track of schedules of different family members. However, with the help of an Android phone, efficiency can be maintained in the family schedule. To keep track of your schedule, a Google calendar is a great resource.

For making these calendars available almost anywhere, an Android phone is a great resource.

Instructions to use your Android phone to aid in the Family Schedule

To aid in the family schedule, the Android phone can be used by following some necessary steps as mentioned below.

Step 1: Through a web browser, go to the Google calendar in your Gmail account. For this purpose, you can use an Android phone, but it would be much easier through a computer. Along the left hand side of the screen, there would be a ‘My Calendars’ widget with your Google account, which would be listed as the one calendar.

Step 2: Besides your calendar, click on the small down arrow and then select ‘Share this calendar’. After that, enter your family member’s Google account on the page and about what permission they would have to your calendar. To send a sharing invitation to the email account, press ‘Add Person’.

Step 3: Once this is done, go to Google Calendar for the receiving account and then subscribe to the shared calendar.

Step 4: Repeat the steps previously mentioned, for the purpose of sharing this accounts calendar with the first account; after its done, go back and subscribe to it in the first account.

Step 5: Following the above procedure would result in the two accounts calendars being shared with each other and would enable the users to view all on one calendar. Exploring the settings on the application can also get different peoples events to appear as different colors on the calendar.

Step 6: The android phone of yours should have asked you for your Google account while you had configured it first; and be syncing back and forth with your Google account calendar. It would also pick up the shared calendar and display the particular events on the Android phone.

Step 7: Now you need to press long enough on the Android phones desktop for adding a widget to the screen. The calendar widget is a great tool as it shows the next event on your shared calendars, with different colors. The calendar would be displayed by tapping on the widget.

Using your Android phones can also be especially useful in keeping track on the things kids go through, with the set up of Google accounts. Also, your web browser can be configured to use iGoogle as the homepage. The Google calendar gadget can be put on your page for viewing your events that way.

5 tips to communicate better from home

Working from home is no longer a thing of the past as more and more companies have begun to allow their employees to meet deadlines even while they are not in the office. However, even if you have got the right tools and have everything planned and set up; working from home is still very different from working in office.

How to communicate better from home

Communication with co-workers and superiors alike is very important while being at home to maintain a proper connection. There are five essential tips that can be followed to improve communication with co-workers from home.

Making appointments: In every area of work, making proper planned appointments is necessary for proper organization of work. Just like you set time aside for making an appointment to consult a doctor, you should also make appointments in advance for important, work related telephone calls. By making sure to book a specific time, you can be assured that the concerned person would be focused and well prepared for the conversation. For making the call productive, it is essential to make preparations beforehand.

Staying focused in phone conferences: Although it is natural to stray when meetings especially telephonic conferences get long, it is essential to remain completely focused while attending any kind of phone conferences. Distractions must be avoided as much as possible and one should not involve himself with other tasks at the same time. It also needs to be ensured that there is enough silence in the background because that can prove to be a major hindrance in any conversation.

Attending weekly staff meetings: It is essential to keep yourself up to date with the happenings in the organization and to attend meetings for the purpose of setting new goals, reflecting on the performance, or for discussing about the current status of work. Even if you are working at home full-time, you should try to attend a meeting at least once a week for keeping in touch with the others.

Staying online as much as possible: People working from home should keep their computers switched on most of the time and keep a regular check on the incoming mails for responding to them as soon as possible. If you are not efficient and quick in that respect, your superiors in office may get the impression that you are not working enough, even if you are serving more than 8 hours a day. A quick response to e-mails will help remind people that you are completely focused on your work.

Be assertive: When you are not at office and working from elsewhere, taking initiatives and being proactive becomes an essential part of your work. Even if you have completed the targets for the day and are left with enough time, you can contact your superior for more work; this creates a good impression.

When you have made sure of all the above points, communicating in the right way proves to be a very effective tool.

Facebook denies any phone in the Making

According to recent media rumors (TechCrunch) Facebook is building a mobile phone. More specifically information is around that Facebook is seeking to build the software for the phone and that they might be on a high Research and development project by working with a third party.

You must also remember that it was almost a year ago when the first rumors of Google’s phone were in the close quarters of various media hubs. However the validity of this assertion that Facebook would really be going into the hardware market doesn’t just come as a wild guess, but experts predict that Facebook maybe into aggressive expansion.

After the press conference that Facebook had held in early June, Facebook had made a couple of direct “attacks” against the market that Google currently holds. In fact Facebook had announced rigorous methods of expansion by capitalizing on the advertising potential. It had even given an open challenge to Google of becoming the number one search engine based on personal search. So, can the latest rumors be seen in the context of these past trends?

According to the leaked reports the project is currently being led by Joe Hewitt and Matthew Papakipos , who are looking at the software potential of the creating the phone.

Facebook has vehemently denied the accusation in which it has clearly stated “The story, which originated in Techcrunch, is not accurate. Facebook is not building a phone. Our approach has always been to make phones and apps more social. Current projects include everything from an HTML5 version of the site to apps on major platforms to full Connect support with SDKs to deeper integrations with some manufacturers. Our view is that almost all experiences would be better if they were social, so integrating deeply into existing platforms and operating systems is a good way to enable this.”

For the time being the rumors must have got a rational explanation, however experts are quire wary about the, expansion ideas of Facebook. After all Facebook making its own phone does not sound like a bad idea.
