installing applications remotely on mac

To use a dmg disk image you would use:
hdiutil mount thefile.dmg
You then have a /Volumes/The\ Application.
In that directory you would usually either have an or a Application.pkg directory.

  • If it’s an .app file, just copy the files to your /Applications/ directory:
    sudo cp /Volumes/The\ Application/ /Applications/
  • f it’s a .pkg file, run:
    sudo installer -package Application.pkg -target /Volumes/Mac\ OS

That’s it !

Crossover Chromium: google’s chrome browser for osx and linux

Codeweavers, the company which is famous for releasing Crossover (a kind of windows emulator for linux and osx, based on the famous wine project) have released crossover chromium which is a package that contains just enough of crossover and a build of chromium to be able to run it. There’s an OSX and a Linux build. Chromium is google’s project which is the base of the chrome browser. Crossover released the packages 11 days after google chrome got out, this is a proof of concept, wine and crossover have became mature, codeweavers are reactive, but becarefull, it’s not advised to use crossover chromium as day to day browser for now (anyway, I think I’ll try to do it !).

Get the OSX package here, and ubuntu 32 bit pacakge here, and Have Fun !

Update: on osx, my chromium keeps crashing, I think this might because of my firewall, on linux, the windowing is quite slow but for me it works.

Pwnage tool latest

I had hard times finding the latest pwnage tool mac version.
It’s here.
Anyway, if you don’t find the latest version, you can still download a version and check for updates while running the pwnage tool.
Enjoy it !

Also, I tried to download “prebuilt” images but it’s hard to know if it has jailbreak, if it has cydia installed and so on… Also, itunes refused to install some of those images. I found it easier to use the pwnagetool with the original firmware and create your own image, you are pretty sure of the result and you don’t wonder “were I really in DFU mode ?” …

DFU mode confusion (error 6 or error 1)

To jailbreak an iPhone or an iPod touch, you need to get the device in what is called DFU mode but there is a lot of confusion because some sites badly explains how to get in DFU mode. Remember this golden rule: if the screen is not blank, YOU ARE NOT IN DFU MODE

To get the device in DFU mode follow the instruction here (This site has simple and clear instructions).

Update: This link also explains how to put the iPhone in DFU mode.

fluke: itunes and FLAC

I sometimes have flac files, I like it because as its names says it (Free Lossless Audio Codec), it’s lossless and it’s free. I just discovered a piece of software that bundles and automates the loading FLAC’s in itunes. It’s cool because, I used to use a FLACImporter, and Set OggS, but this script bundles both and does integreation.

Have Fun !
