Es­to es pa­ra ayu­dar­me en una char­la que voy a dar en el Py­Day Ro­sa­rio por fa­vor res­pon­dan ho­nes­ta­men­te!

EN­CUES­TA FI­NA­LI­ZA­DA, GRA­CIA­S!

Endomondo Me Miente

Ha­ce una se­ma­na re­to­mé mi pro­gra­ma de die­ta y ejer­ci­cio. Ya que es­toy muy gor­do, el plan de ejer­ci­cios es bá­si­ca­men­te "an­dá a ca­mi­nar 5km to­dos los día­s, cho­chán". Co­mo soy un ner­d, quie­ro da­ta, así no me mien­to res­pec­to a cuan­to ca­mino.

Ha­bía vis­to En­do­mon­do men­cio­na­do en twi­tter mu­chas ve­ce­s, y los fea­tu­res pa­re­cían ser ca­si exac­ta­men­te lo que ne­ce­si­to:

  • Ra­s­­trear la ca­­mi­­na­­ta

  • Lle­­var his­­to­­­rial

  • Mo­s­­tra­r­­la en Google maps (po­r­­que es li­n­­do)

Has­ta ha­ce co­sas co­mo con­tar ca­lo­rías y co­sas así.

El úni­co pro­ble­ma es que ... es una ba­zo­fia mi­dien­do. Con­sis­ten­te­men­te so­brees­ti­ma las dis­tan­cias por al­re­de­dor de un 50%, y ya que cal­cu­la la ve­lo­ci­dad pro­me­dio ba­sa­do en tiem­po y dis­tan­cia, y el tiem­po lo mi­de bien, so­brees­ti­ma ve­lo­ci­dad por 50%, lo que ha­ce que a su vez so­brees­ti­me el uso de ca­lo­rías por (a­di­vi­nan­do) 125%.

Co­mo ve­ri­fi­qué que lo que es­tá ro­to es En­do­mon­do y no mi GP­S?

  1. Me tra­­ckeé usan­­do En­­do­­­mo­n­­do y Google Trails al mis­­mo tie­m­­po.

  2. Co­n­­té pa­­sos es­­ti­­lo mi­­lla ro­­­ma­­na (co­n­­tar ca­­da "de­­re­­cha-i­­z­­quie­r­­da", mu­l­­ti­­pli­­car por 1.6)

  3. Me­­dí el ca­­mino en Google Maps y Bing Maps

To­das esas me­di­das me di­cen que una ca­mi­na­ta de 1100 +/- 150m es me­di­da por En­do­mon­do co­mo 1.68k­m.

¿Por qué pa­sa eso? Po­dría asu­mir que En­do­mon­do es una ba­su­ra y tal vez ten­ga ra­zó­n, pe­ro tra­tan­do de en­con­trar una ex­pli­ca­cion "in­te­re­san­te", me in­clino ha­cia me­di­cio­nes con mu­cho rui­do. Por ejem­plo, si En­do­mon­do vie­ra mi po­si­ción cam­bian­do 0 o 15 me­tros a la iz­quier­da o de­re­cha al azar ca­da tan­to, agre­ga­ría su­fi­cien­te rui­do co­mo pa­ra jus­ti­fi­car el error (pa­ra un ejem­plo muy bue­no de es­to, lean es­te pa­per (de na­da me­nos que Be­noit Man­del­bro­t) pe­ro eso no ex­pli­ca por qué Trails mi­de me­jor (a me­nos que Trails ha­ga al­go as­tu­to con an­tia­lia­sing e in­ter­po­la­ció­n).

¿Si usás En­do­mon­do, me con­tás si te pa­sa lo mis­mo o no? No quie­ro me­ter­ne un re­view ma­lo en Google Play sin con­fir­ma­ción in­de­pen­dien­te.

How I Made My Phone Useful

So, I got this pho­ne on my trip to the US. It's a Ga­la­xy SII va­riant ca­lled the S959­G. It's not a ve­ry co­m­mon va­rian­t, and of cour­se it was lo­cked to a ne­two­rk tha­t's una­vai­la­ble he­re, and co­mes wi­th An­droid 2.3 whi­ch is an­cien­t, so it nee­ded so­me fi­xin­g.

And man, the An­droid co­m­mu­ni­ty is a me­ss about do­cu­men­ting stu­ff. So he­re's my shot at it.

This on­ly applies to THIS PHO­NE if you go blind doing this, or your dog ca­tches fi­re, not my pro­ble­m.


The goa­l:

  • Un­­lo­­­cked

  • Rooted

  • Newer An­­droid

  • Google Apps

  • Do­­­ne using Ubun­­tu (be­­­cau­­se I pre­­fer it)

The pro­ce­ss is a bit len­gth­y, but sim­ple.

Install heimdall

It's in the re­po­s, just use ap­t, pie­ce of cake

Go to the XDA pa­ge for this pho­ne be­cau­se that see­ms to be the ca­no­ni­cal in­for­ma­tion sour­ce.

Get (from whe­re it sa­ys "The best way to root") the CWM RE­CO­VE­RY v6.0.27 fi­le. It's ca­lled CW­M-­Re­co­ve­r­y.­ta­r.­m­d5 be­cau­se ver­sion na­mes are for the weak.

Get the recovery.bin that's inside it using tar xvf CW­M-­Re­co­ve­r­y.­ta­r.­m­d5

Put your pho­ne in­to do­wn­load mo­de. For this mo­del tha­t's do­ne like this:

  • Turn off

  • Plug in­­to USB

  • Press Vo­­­lu­­me Up and Vo­­­lu­­me Do­­wn (keep press­e­­d)

  • Press po­­wer (keep press­e­­d)

  • When Sam­­sung appears on screen, let go of po­­wer bu­­tton

  • When you see a wa­r­­ning si­g­n, let go of vo­­­lu­­me bu­­ttons

  • Cli­­ck Vo­­­lu­­me Up

Flash the recovery.bin using heimdall: heimdall flash --­re­co­ve­ry re­co­ve­r­y.­bin

Now you ha­ve to go in­to re­co­ve­ry to make ba­ckup­s:

  • Turn off

  • Un­­plug USB

  • Press Vo­­­lu­­me up and do­­wn and hold

  • Press po­­wer

  • Let go of po­­wer when Sam­­sung fla­s­hes

  • The­­re you are

In this mo­de, vo­lu­me up/­do­wn mo­ve the cur­sor up/­do­wn and the po­wer bu­tton chooses the se­lec­ted op­tio­n. Do the ob­vious thing to do a ba­cku­p.

Turn on the pho­ne and make su­re it wo­rks.

Now co­py the Cya­no­gen­Mod zip fi­le from XDA (or any i777 ima­ge) in­to the pho­ne's SD Card so­me­how (drag and drop in Nau­ti­lus wo­rks ;-)

Go ba­ck in­to re­co­ve­ry mo­de as abo­ve.

Clean up the pho­ne: Clean da­ta, ca­che, and in ad­van­ce­d, clean dal­vik ca­che.

Ins­ta­ll by using "Ins­ta­ll zip from sd­car­d" and choosing the ri­ght one, and doing the ob­vious thin­g.

Boot the pho­ne, it should now be in Cya­no­gen­Mod (ya­y).

Try to make a pho­ne ca­ll. If you can't an­d/or the pho­ne asks for a SIM PI­N, it's sti­ll lo­cke­d. To un­lo­ck I us­ed this APK whi­ch was un­tes­ted on this mo­de­l, but he­y, it wo­rke­d.

You may al­so need to ins­ta­ll one of the "mo­de­m" fi­les from XDA. Just put them in the SD car­d, go to re­co­ve­r­y, and ins­ta­ll one, tr­y, if it does­n't wo­rk then try ano­ther one.

Get ga­pp­s-­j­b-20130301-­sig­ne­d.­zip from the XDA pa­ge.

Co­py that in­to the SD car­d, then ins­ta­ll from re­co­ve­ry mo­de.

And tha­t's it. If it fail­s, you can pro­ba­bly go ba­ck to so­me­thing rea­so­na­ble using the sto­ck fir­mwa­re tha­t's in the sa­me pa­ge, but I ha­ve not do­ne it so I do­n't offer in­truc­tion­s.

Good lu­ck!
