Now the OS, since the factory OS is crappy I flash it with TNT lite 2.2.0 thanks to the people from xdadevelopers and droidpirate.Heres how I flash mine: (from

You may get TNT lite from or --> this one is TNT lite 2.4.0 the latest version as of this writing.

#TO Flash

Step 1 Stock Recovery: Unzip the Zip file using WinZip, WinRAR or 7Zip, you will notice you have a “Recovery Folder” and an “” file. Copy both of those files to the root of your SD-Card or (Internal Storage) just make sure your Internal storage is around 13 Gigs.

Step 2- Reboot your device into the Recovery mode by pressing the “Volume UP” keeping that pressed hold the “Power” button as well. When you get to the ViewSonic boot image logo you should see text “Detected Recovery Image” – You can now release the buttons.

Step 3- Device will now handle everything else from here. Let the files install through Recovery sit back once completed Reboot your device.

Some tweaks to make Market and Flash work on the browser:

Go into “Settings” – “Applications” – “system Applications” and you must Force Stop both the “Market” (also Clear cache) and “Google Services Frameworks” apps.

Download flash from

Step 1.
Create a folder on your SD card called APKs. Download “Adobe Flash Player” and "TitaniumBackup_latest.apk" which you will find attached at the bottom of this post and save them in that “APKs” folder on your SD card.

Step 2.
On your tablet open up “ES File Explorer”. In there, open up the “APKs” folder, then select Adobe Flash Player, and follow the on screen instructions to finish installing that. After that, select Titanium Backup in that same folder, and install the same way.

Now my experience:

I use it to read ebooks using Adobe reader
I use it to check on my FB and watch flash movies.
So far yahoo messenger is the apps I use to do video call and chat. But there is bug I think that need to be address video is tilted.
I tried to install andchat and connectbot for irc and ssh it still need some tweaks.
gmail for may mail

Oh Im not a gamer but I installed angry birds just to test it and was ok.

And I haven't test security yet. That it for now.

Sunday at NJ

I'm now in NJ, Church is to far from here (I'm in our staff house) no means of transpo except car so I did not hear mass may be this sat or sun. I went to walmart (thanks to Bong my roommate for driving me) to buy some prepaid sim (t-mobile) by the way you cannot buy just the sim it should be with the phone and activating your sim will go to a process its either you call the customer service or log in to there web site ( and fill up some questionnaire same with there customer support and thats the time your sim will be activated and you will know your cell number. They did not print the number at the back of the sim card for security reason. I bought some hygiene stuff like soap tooth paste I bought the big size cause it save if you big in big size. Below is a photo of my room.

thats it for now..

Verify SAN Disk

Luxadm is an utility, which discovers FC devices (luxadm probe).
# luxadm probe
No Network Array enclosures found in /dev/es

Found Fibre Channel device(s):
Node WWN:200600a0b829a7a0 Device Type:Disk device
Logical Path:/dev/rdsk/c4t600A0B800029A7A000000DC747A8168Ad0s2

I then run a luxadm on the device. Below you can see that I do indeed have two paths to the device.
1 controller = one path, 2 controllers = 2 paths

Money JARS that I'm practicing

I been attending CA2020 its not the usual IT community I been attending like plug,ubuntu-ph,etc its a community of business minded people and they share how to become financially free I learn one cool stuff from them the money jar which I'm practicing. Below how it works

Short description of each one.

> Necessity Account (NEC - 55%): This account is for managing your everyday expenses and bills. This would include things like your rent, mortgage, utilities, bills, taxes, food, clothes, etc. Basically it includes anything that you need to live, the necessities.

> Financial Freedom Account (FFA - 10%):The money that you put into this jar is used for investments and building your passive income streams. You never spend this money. The only time you would spend this money is once you become financially free. Even then you would only spend the returns on your investment. Never spend the principal or else you’ll go broke!

> Education Account (EDU - 10%): Money in this jar is meant to further your education and personal growth. An investment in yourself is a great way to use your money.

>Long Term Saving for Spending Account (LTSS - 10%): The money in this jar is for the bigger nice to have purchases.

> Play Account (PLAY - 10%):PLAY money is spent every month on purchases you wouldn’t normally make. The purpose of this jar is to nurture yourself. You could purchase an expensive bottle of wine at dinner, get a massage or go on a weekend getaway. Play can be anything your heart desires.

> Give Account (GIVE - 5%): The money in this account is for giving away.When you give your money or time you’re sending a sign of abundance to the Universe. You’re telling the Universe that you have plenty of everything, you’re abundant. Giving signals abundance. This will magnetically attract more abundance to you.
