      NBA 2k13 on Cherry Mobile Fusion Ice and Fusion Bolt (how to install for free)

      NBA 2K game is the most popular sporting game on the planet, an ever present entity on every gamer’s wish list, that of course includes tablet gamers, NBA 2K13 in particular is the latest in the NBA 2K franchise and the demands for it is ever growing resulting into a never ending questions of device compatibility.

      One popular question in the local tablet gaming community lingers on top, transferring from one mouth to another and is in need of some serious answering --- Will NBA 2K13 work on cheap tablets like the cherry mobile fusion ice and fusion bolt? The answer is YES it will work on both device --- in this article I’ll be more than happy to share with you bits of information on where to download and how to install NBA 2K13 on both the fusion ice and fusion bolt for free.

      I’ll be using a cracked version of NBA 2K13 “pirated” is a more universal term ---sshh! Don’t tell my mom! Surprised that’s why it’s free. Some cracked games will not work on a particular android device unless it has been rooted, that includes the cracked version of NBA 2k13, lucky for you, I won’t go on elaborating the complex world of android rooting, saves us both from the messy part of nose bleeding. The magic comes from the fusion ice and fusion bolt itself; both are stock rooted meaning they’ve been rooted since day 1, though I’m still not sure whose part had played a role in the stock rooting process. Ainol is the original manufacturer of both devices, it could be possible that they’ve deliberately released a stock rooted tablet, but then, I doubt it --- it’s most likely that cherry mobile is responsible for such act, or a blessing of sort.

      All cherry mobile devices are re-branded products coming from a wide array of OEMs, like Konka and Ainol. CM had then created a habit of tweaking their entire product line to give it a convincing cherry mobile looks and feel, most evidently, on their android devices. Some software alterations on an android device may require root access in order to perform such tweaks, i.e. start up animation, UI tweaks, tethering, embedded built in app, and USB 3G dongle brand compatibility. All of these modifications are prominent in most cherry mobile android devices spearheaded by their tablet line, so I’m pretty sure that the stock rooting stuff was done in the part of cherry mobile itself. ----- without further a do let's get down to business.........

      Turn your DSi XL into an e-book reader (DsLibris)

      The DSi XL is the 4rth iteration in the DS family, in 2004 Nintendo made waves when they release their first DS and now after a mere decade of gaming supremacy, the bell starts to toll on the DS's life, sadly Nintendo has plans of pulling out the life support on the DS anytime this year, infact according to my resources only a handful of DS games will be scheduled for release this 2013, after that its sayonara DS.

      Cheer up! you can still make use of the DS by turning it into an e-book reader and what a fine e-reader the DSi XL can be, those massive dual 4.2 inch screen is an essential tool for book reading and no other e-reader could provide you with what the DSi XL could do; "you get to read it by holding it like a real book", but first you'll have to install the DsLibris homebrew app, the download link is in my DOWNLOADS AND EXTRAS, you'll also need an R4i (DSi/DSi XL) users or R4 (DS/DS Lite) users, after downloading the DsLibris zip file extract whatever is in there, then copy all the extracted files in the root folder of your sd card, when done insert the sd card back to your R4/R4i, turn the DSi XL on, press update and enjoy.

      How to install Android Market on the Arnova 7 G2 without flashing.

      Arnova 7 G2 is one good tablet that offers value for money, though as good as it seem, it lack something on its menu. The Arnova 7 G2 doesn't have an Android Market app, instead it comes pre-installed with Appslib a good for nothing alternative for the android market, that is why many Arnova users are finding ways of installing Android Market on their device, in which most of them often ended up flashing and opted using custom firmwares, however, flashing and custom firmwares has its drawback, to some, flashing comes a bit complicated, if not done properly it may cause some serious problems, and using custom firmwares has its limitations especially when it comes to updating your system not to mention bugs that could cause your system to lag, either way, both procedures are not in my options list, and so, I was forced to tirelessly search the web in hopes of finding other ways of installing Android Market on my Arnova 7 G2 until finally my endless search has come to a halt and my hard work paid off, I now have Android Market on my Arnova 7 G2 and I did it without flashing.....The procedures are listed below.

      Download the file Market 3.4.4.rar (you can download Market 3.4.4 rar in my DOWNLOADS AND EXTRAS corner along the side bar) extract the APK files then transfer it in your SD card, and then install the following APK files in order 1.GoogleServicesFramework APK, 2.OneTimeInitializer APK, 3.SetupWizard APK, 4.Gmail APK, 5.Vending-3.4.4-signed APK, 6.Talk-signed APK(optional), 7.Maps APK(optional). After installing all the files don't launch the Android Market just yet, open the Gmail app first then log in make sure you are connected, after logging in you can now use the Android Market.:-)

      Maximizing your Gadgets

      As a consumer I always have this motto “Get more than what I pay for”, when gadget shopping always pick the right gadget for you, also consider price tags that won’t stress your wallet, practice your freedom to choose there are other brands out there that offers the same features but at a much more reasonable price, like Samsung for instance. As soon as you got your smartly picked gadget, maximize it by learning all its’ embedded features from top to bottom, then install some free third party apps to further boost its’ full potential. Turn your ordinary phone into a smartphone, your android tablet into a gym trainer and more, now that’s getting your money’s worth. Here are some sites that will help you maximize your gadgets.

      www.umnet.com = free apps and games, all platform supported

      mobile9.com, zedge.com, getjar.com = free cellphone apps, games, wallpapers, etc.

      www.apptrackr.org/ = a haven for jailbroken apple devices

      www.getandroidstuff.com = free android apps and games

      www.uiqwenru.com = free apps and games for the classic Sony Ericsson P-series

      6 reasons why pioneer gadget shoppers always get the bad end of the deal.

      1: You get to buy it at a high price.

      2: You always get the bulky and least attractive design.

      3: System stability is not 100%.

      4: You regret buying it as soon as the 2nd gen is release.

      5: You'll spend more cash if you trade your 1st gen to a 2nd gen.

      6: Makes you look like you're holding a fossil as soon as the 3rd or 4th gen is released.

      What!!! my psp (1st gen) and my ipod touch (2nd gen) is now a fossil!

      If you got a 1st gen device there's no need to upgrade it to a newer version all you have to do is upgrade its' firmware, that's what I've been doing with my psp (1st gen) and my ipod touch (2nd gen) for the last 4 or 5 yrs, but if you have a deep pocket and lots of money to spend for, then go for it, that will make you the envy of the town.

      BE SMART: The reason why I'm not upgrading my psp 1st gen to psp go is because it's just a cosmetic make-over, if ever I'm going to upgrade it, I'm gonna go for the PSVita and as for the ipod touch 4th gen, it didn't just get a trim down design but a different experience as well, with it's retina display, dual camera, facetime support, game marketshop, and a 1ghz processor, truly a whole new different experience from it's 1st, 2nd and 3rd gen brethren, I'll consider this as a future upgade, that is if a got the money....:-(
