The “Internet of Things” (IoT) is a popular term referring to the increasing number of items that have an IP address.  While an over-riding home automation communication standard has yet to appear, IP is rapidly becoming the medium of choice.  The new low power 802.11ah standard that’s in the works should make Wi-Fi even more practical for smart home applications and with IPv6 it’s easy to see a time when every light bulb, radiator valve and PIR in our homes will have their own IP address on the smart grid.

Check out the Arduino and the Raspberry pi, which continue to be the darlings of the DIY home automation hardware hacker and there are a multitude of new wireless bulbtechnologies that have emerged in recent times too.

Lastly here’s a list of smart home technologies that haven’t made it into the main body of this article yet.

 

Bytte bremseklosser og bremseskive på Volvo V70 med elektronisk handbrems. (EPB)

Det finst mange sider på internett der det blir diskutert korleis en bytter bremseklosser og skiver på Volvo V70 med elektronisk handbrems (EPB). Eg fant en som hadde postet en guide på dette. Sjølv har eg prøvd med Volvo Vida 2014A uten å finne fane der eg kunne sette handbrems i service modus.

Sånn ser den elektroniske handbremsen ut frå baksida: 



Trekk ut kontakten (lettere sagt så gjort…) Stikk et skrujern inn i siden av kontakten og vipp kontakta opp: 



Nå kan en fjerne caliperen fra “bremsekloss-holdaren”. Bruk en 13mm fastnøkkel. Hold igjen på innsida, ved gummibeskyttelsen med en 15mm fastnøkkel: 



Slik ser innfestinga av den elektroniske handbremse motoren ut. Skru ut Torx skruen. (Størrelse T30): 

Skru ut den andre Torx’n som er på motsatt side av EPB’n:







Når du har fjernet EPB, ser baksiden av caliperen slik ut: 



Skru bolten i midten med klokka. Det skal gå bra med Torx T40, men vær forsiktig. Det vil ta lang tid å skru inn bolten. En må rekne med nokon minutt. 

PS: Husk å skru inn caliper stempel, før montering.

Monter i motsatt rekkefølge. Når alt er montert sammen igjen (caliper, klosser og skiver) så aktiverer enn den elektroniske handbremsen. Første gangen vil den bruke litt lengre tid enn normalt. Så ta den av og på igjen. Nå skal alt høres normalt ut.

Metoder for å få ROOT tilgang på Android enheter

Det er mange metoder for å få ROOT tilgang på Android telefoner. Det har tidligere vore en del “script” som måtte kjøres for å få til dette. Lange og delvis avanserte oppskrifter. Dette er no blitt automatisert og det er i dag tre gode alternativ for “auto-root”.

VROOT   Et kinesisk program som gir ROOT tilgang på dei aller fleste Android enheter som eksisterar. Tar heilt opp til 4.3 i skrivande stond. Har brukt VROOT på Sony Xpera Tablet Z og det fungerte fint. Websida deira er http://www.mgyun.com/en/GetVRoot

UnlockRoot Pro  Denne koster pengar. Dei har også et UnlockFLASH for Samsung” program. Websida er http://www.unlockroot.com

Srs Root  Støtter mange Android enheter. Websida er http://www.srsroot.com/

===================================================================

 

Oppskrift for bruk av VROOT:

1,Rooting app started. This will pop-up.

2,connect your device and you it will get detected. (Make sure USB Debugging is turned ON in your device)
Click the Green bottom right button and wait for rooting process to be done.

3,When this shows up, device will reboot, now you can unplug your device.

4. Now you need to install SuperSU from play store to replace the Chinese root manager called 授权管理 1.0.4.
5. Go to play store and install SuperSU.
6. Start SuperSU and you will be asked for permission by 授权管理 1.0.4, choose 允许(means allow). (Should be the right side option.)
7. SuperSU will prompt to install SU binary, go ahead with OK and it will display successful.
8. Now, freeze 授权管理 1.0.4 in titanium backup, just in case you need it again.
Note: If you uninstall straight away from app manager, you need to make sure SuperSU updated the binary.
9. Re-run SuperSU to make sure everything is alright. You will be prompt again to install SU binary, just do what it asked.
10. After that, you are rooted with SuperSU and 授权管理 1.0.4 will not be there anymore.

OPTIONAL

11. If you want to be more assured, in SuperSU app, prepare for a Reinstall in settings. (NOT Full unroot NOT Switch superuser app)
12. SuperSU will be removed and go back to play store to re-download and install.
13. Start SuperSU and SuperSU will prompt to install SU binary, go ahead with OK and it will display successful.

 

EDIT 29.07.2014

Et anna godt alternativ er KingoApp Root frå http://www.kingoapp.com
