What you are viewing is my newly unbricked htc one x running CyanogenMod 10.2. I unlocked the phone a while back and it ran HTC sense and jellybean. I tried to get fancy and install CyanogenMod 11 snapshot. It got stuck in a bootloop.
With android tools android SDK and android studio installed I got adb to work and…..boom..adb sideload mania. I also replaced Clockworkmod as it had no adb side load option.
This post is from my newly revamped HTC one x….Cyanogen

Feeling Welcomed

A distance learner depends on hardware and software to study.  Having chronicled a linux users trails and tribulations attempting to use webex virtual meeting software.  My department has taken notice and they have worked diligently to make my learning experience easier as a linux user.  Overall the department has really made me feel welcomed as a learner.

Our department will no longer rely on microsoft-centric webex software, instead we will use visimeet.  I am also very impressed by visimeet’s efforts to develop diverse platforms for their software…

It is refreshing to see Mac OS, Android and various Linux versions of this meeting software.  I now, have tested visimeet on my phone, laptop and desktop.  All work.  Visimeet also has a web interface for use without the desktop client, impressive.

I now use Lubuntu 14.04 as my laptop for school (I tested the desktop client on a laptop and desktop running Xubuntu).  Here is how the install went

First I downloaded and installed the Visimeet Debian package software..

Next I installed it with the gdebi package manager

Academic laptop update.

The Lenovo G570 that ran debian Gnome 3 and XFCE died.  The mobo quit and it is now ebay bait.  As a student on a budget and as a distance learner I needed a new laptop.  I went to ebay and purchased a HP 6930p laptop with missing backspace and function keys for £59.00.   The p8600 core duo processor is old and just a little weaker than an i3 (yes I know about the threading differences).  I need to run visimeet meeting software, search and read pdf documents and e books.  A core 2 duo (p8600) is enough power for the quid conscious.

The OS..Lubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Thar)

I have installed some additional software to make the laptop suit my needs.

I am very impressed with lubuntu, it is lightening quick and very malleable.  My academic needs should be met.  One annoying issue I have encountered is the lack of built in webcam and mic.  This is easily overcome though….: )
