Fix for Boot Camp x64 is unsupported on this computer model

Fix for Boot Camp x64 is unsupported on this computer model

on 15 September, 2013 in Blog | 58 comments

Recently I tried to install Boot Camp 5.0.5033 on my MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2009) having previously installed Windows 7 64-bit. Guess what? Apple decided to make our life difficult again by popping up “Boot Camp x64 is unsupported on this computer model” error. I am guessing that this problem  happening to many of you out there that have different models of Macs so here is how to solve: 1 Download Boot Camp 5.0.5033 (or a newer version) from apple’s website. 2 Extract all contents but do not run *BootCamp5.0.5033\BootCamp\setup.exe as this will produce the error displayed above. 3 Instead we need to run *BootCamp5.0.5033\BootCamp\Drivers\Apple\BootCamp.msi but if we try to do it the old fashioned way, yet another error pops up “this installation requires elevated privileges. launch the installer through setup.exe”. Unfortunately in my case there was no option to run the msi as Administrator. 4 To overcome the administrator issue, navigate to C:\Windows\System32 and locate cmd.exe. Right click the icon and select Run as administrator option. Hold on! Right click is not available without boot camp; well here is a secret, Shift+F10 does exactly the same! Navigate again to  *BootCamp5.0.5033\BootCamp\Drivers\Apple and execute BootCamp.msi from the command prompt by typing BootCamp.msi. If that does not work try “BootCamp.msi”. Voila! Restart your Mac and you are good to go. 5 (Bonus) Follow this link Windows BootCamp reverse scrolling to make scrolling in Windows have similar feeling as in Mac OS...

iPhone iGO GPS with latest maps

iPhone iGO GPS with latest maps

on 25 January, 2012 in Blog | 2 comments

Installing the latest GPS software for iPhone with latest maps can be very tricky, especially if you do not know where to search or how to do it. I have spend quite some time trying to figure out what the best way is but most of the times, either the GPS software was old, or the maps included in the ipa file were old. So here it goes: I assume that your iPhone is jailbroken. If its not, you can buy the GPS software and the maps from app store 🙂 Make sure that OpenSSH is installed via Cydia, we will need to access iPhone contents so this is needed. Also sbsettings is useful as it will help us to enable SSH access and find out what is the phone’s IP address when connected to your Wi-Fi. AppSync is also another application worth mentioning that can and should be installed again via Cydia. 1. apptrackr.org, the paradise for iPhone cracked applications! From here you can download the latest version of the GPS software you wish. I use iGO Primo since it supports .fbl extension maps which is the most common and easier to find. Maybe other programs support same format. What region/map of iGO should not concern you at this point; I downloaded Costa Rica version as it was small and faster to download/install. After installation, install on your iPhone by dragging in iTunes and then synching. 2. Find the latest .fbl maps from some site or some torrent. They are available pretty much anywhere. Here is the link of Cyprus and Greece maps to get you started: Cyprus_TopMap_2011_Q3 Greece_TopMap_2011_Q3 3. Using putty from Windows or Terminal from Mac connect to your iPhone. Reminder that the SSH should be enabled and the IP of the device can be found in sbsettings main screen. Default credentials; user:root/pass:alpine. 4. Now, this is the most tricky part. Locating the directory where iGO stores current maps. To do this use the following command from the terminal: # find / -name “*iGO*” -print My results were: /private/var/mobile/Applications/532E8586-A692-4D86-B4E7-3C121231E2AA/iGO_Myway.app /private/var/mobile/Applications/532E8586-A692-4D86-B4E7-3C121231E2AA/iGO_Myway.app/iGO_Myway/ 5. Navigate to the first directory using iPhone Browser from Windows or iExplorer from Mac. Then open content/map directory and there you will be able to...
