I was having this idea for a long long time. Yesterday my friends and I were talking about it again. Well, apparently others have done so, if you Google it. Below is a very short list of things I found online (there are tons of apps and companies doing so). https://www.camio.com/ http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/use-old-smartphone-tablet-security-camera/ https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mantishrimp.salienteye But it occurs to me to… Continue reading Turn Stale SmartPhone Into SecCamera?
Okay I know this is not new and people have discussed about it, but I still want to post something here to log the process.
To get in the Testmode, just connect to your DPT-S1 and create an empty file named "
rVPzp8O1j0m01oOq.crsZVu8crtmXGrc2". Then reboot it, press HOME key once to get back to the home. And then press MENU key four to six times (first time you press it you will see the time on top left corner). Then you will get into the Test Mode app. Online people said you need to press BACK button along with HOME key three times, but mine work with just pressing MENU buttons.
If you see black screen, just press once BACK button and you should be able to see Test Mode.
I think Sony updated the Test Mode in version 188.8.131.5280. My "Update Sony Reader file" shows "NG: file not found" instead of "sr.bin is not found".
Recently I need to quickly scan the local network and find my other device's IP address. I do not have access to the access point, and my device does not report its IP so I cannot directly get what I want. But using another device (laptop specifically), I can quickly find out the IP address of that device.
Just simply do:
for ip in $(seq 1 254); do echo $ip; nmap -sP --max-retries=1 --host-timeout=10ms 10.0.0.$ip | grep "Host is up"; done
Since we are under the same network (assuming my IP is 10.0.0.xx), we will have very low latency (so we can set low timeout). And then this prints:
1 Host is up (xxxs latency). 2 3 ... 61 Host is up (xxxs latency). ... 206 Host is up (xxxs latency). ...
- 10.0.0.1 is my gateway (access point)
- 10.0.0.61 is me
- And of course the one left is 10.0.0.206, which is my device's IP
Both are beautiful songs.. and what if there is a remix..
Eyes feel drained and tired after reading from the laptop.. So glad we have E-ink readers. Sony DPT S1 has been out for years, and it's price finally drops to an acceptable range. Considering I will have 3 more years of papers to read, I bought it. There would be new tablet out namely Good E-Reader, but I decided not to wait. Besides, from online people have shown by modding hardware you can hack the device and run Android 2.2 on it. Plan to take a look at that.
