CyanogenMod? No!

Like what Chinese says, itchy hand. I got my S3 about six months ago. It came with ICS 4.0, and later upgraded to JB 4.1 via Kies. Cool OS, I have to say.

Everything seem OK, but I noticed it became extremely slow, over time. I googled, and new term popped up: custom ROM. Yes, you can replace your existing Samsung bloated ROM (yet another new term) with a custom-made version.

There are many custom ROM out there, claiming better and faster compared to the stock ROM (i.e. original ROM from hardware vendor). One of which is the so-called famous CyanogenMod 10 custom ROM, or CM 10.

Well, as I said, itchy hand. As a newbie, I went through hassles and hassles to download and install this ROM. Data were wiped out several time, stuck in boot-loop several time, activated apps a several time. Finally I got my CM 10 working.

I was happy for a while until I noticed CM 10, or any other custom ROMs, does not support MHL. I repeat, CM 10, or any other custom ROMs, does not support MHL.

What is MHL? Simply say, it is the technology to stream HDMI video signal from S3 to HDMI supported TV. According to one of the xda-developer members, MHL on S3 is proprietary to Samsung and will never be supported by custom ROM. MHL is one of the reasons I bought S3, and it is THE important reason.

That’s all. I told myself. I am going back to the Samsung stock ROM. Besides MHL, I realised custom ROM is only meant for low end devices. S3, being a quad-core, the Universal’s best smart phone, has more powerful features than what custom ROM can offer. There is absolutely no point to buy such a rocky hardware and yet install a least-feature, generic, custom ROM.

So, after half a day on a sunny Sunday, I am back to Samsung Jelly Bean stock ROM, via Kies. Simple, hassle-free, and brilliant.

Following some simple instructions, I managed to disable some bloatware such as Yahoo Finance and weather, now it seems to be happy rocking.

Next, I shall be waiting for the Premium Suite to release in this region. Let’s see.

陌生的天使

很幼稚的跟自己發誓,一旦國會解散,我一定重拾鍵盤寫很多文章,幫忙民聯打國陣。那天,自去年國慶前兩星期以來就懸掛了的、已褪色了的國旗,無聲無息的倒下,我告訴自己,國陣就要滅亡了。

民聯好不好我不知道,但國陣政府的貪污沒有一個成年國民沒經歷過。那隻老懵懂說甚麼『熟悉的魔鬼』的言論果然老懵懂。大大聲的講,陌生的天使至少給我們希望。只有過了時的老人類才會想要安於現狀,任人宰割。一點點的貪污不是問題?有誰幫我朝他臉上吐一口痰?這種永遠比下不比上的思想只能帶去棺材自己爽而已。

國陣已經病入膏肓了,這點是有目共睹的。隨手拾幾個例子看看懵懂官嘴巴說的是甚麼:

國家大學擠進世界前兩百所大學就大大聲宣布我們很厲害,卻忘了我們曾經排在百名以內。一旦迭出兩百名外,他們那絕對沒有象牙的嘴巴就說是審核制度的不完善。

任何領域都有的種族固打制度,一個馬來西亞?還大言不慚地說是扶弱,看看他們扶出了甚麼?

曾經自喻為亞洲四小龍外的第五條小龍,突然間變成了東盟五國身份,成就遠遠被拋在後頭。曾經跟新加坡比高低,現在說我們比津巴布韋好。

我們的汽油便宜?我們的車子貴上至少一倍。一輛五萬塊的車子在這裡至少要十萬塊大洋。多出來的五萬塊,以每個月三百塊汽油費開銷來計算的話,可以用上近十四年。車價高,貸款利息、維修費、零件費自然水漲船高,也就是說實際上由高車價所帶來的連鎖消費遠遠的超過一倍。我寧願給足汽油費,也不想這些錢都進AP朋黨口袋中。

治安更節節敗壞。小時候騎腳踏車到處亂跑,現在走路要對來往的電單車抱著警惕之心。而我們的差大人卻不斷拿出他$%&^@#的數據說我們的治安很好很好。

平時打壓言論自由,異議人士統統有麻煩。一旦發現支持率下降,馬上做足門面功夫,撒點小糖,然後臉不紅氣不喘的說看我們多麼民主多麼了解多麼的體諒人民。老實說,真的想吐。

政府部門貪的例子俯拾皆是,一一舉出來的話,已經收山的大英百科全書恐怕也裝不完。

民聯執政的州屬,雖說沒有特別亮眼的成績,卻也歌舞昇平。沒能亮眼是因為國陣五十年來的霸權執政,讓過去的州政府扮演的只是傀儡兼充氣娃娃的角色,導致許多州政府的權限被誤認為聯邦政府的權限。想要奪回權限,一是上法庭,二是成為政府。既然世上沒有完美的憲法,對不對靠法官說了算。而我們的法官們嘛。。哼哼,所以成為政府成了唯一可行的方法。
