Out of all my themes, this one has definitely required the most time (the icons were an absolute bitch). As you all may have noticed, I've improved with each one I've done, and I'm rather proud of this, so I present to you:
THE BLEACH THEME!!
^Coldboot. "GETSUGA TENSHOU!" is what you hear
^ICONS, of which this theme is centered around. Allow me to explain my logic. Captains are awesome, but I wanted Ichigo in there too. So, Ichigo is leading so to speak, which is why he has the main icon, games (as you know, the game menu is the first one you see when you turn PSP on). Also, my reasoning for using Aizen when he is 'good' (LOL) is simple. He has settings, to symbolize his underhandedness going on the whole time wee think he is just a good normal captain. There is extra reasoning behind this. I intend to make another version of this, revolving around some awesome arrancar... And guess who'll be leading them, with the GAMES icon?! Yep, I'll be using Aizen in his Las Noches clothing
^The default wallpaper I include with theme. Shown screenies without it to show how clear the icons are.
^Gameboot. Just before this end screen, you see Ichigo say (quite loudly haha), "BAN...KAI!"
Taken from the episode where he uses Bankai for the first time against Byakuya (man, that was an awesome episode!).
...And that's it for the moment. I'm really happy with this one, so give me your opinions please!
Oh, and for higher or different firmware users, I'm including the icons (in lovely .png format), just in case you need them if this doesn't convert well or something.
I guess it'll be interesting. I'm kinda on the fence about the whole hype train Ubuntu creates whenever something like this happens. One one hand, it means Linux becomes bigger. On the other hand, Ubuntu's becoming like Apple, what with its whole secrecy/hype parts. On the third hand, the word 'Linux' is nowhere to be seen on Ubuntu's homepage. Note even on the 'about' section, or the 'Why is it free' section.
UPDATED Evasi0n 1.3 works with the 6.1.1 update for the iPhone 4S
The iOS 6 / 6.1 untethered jailbreak has now become a reality, thanks to the hard work from those involved in the newly formed Evad3rs jailbreak team. The release of the new userland-based Evasi0n jailbreak tool means that users now have an extremely efficient way of making a complicated background process seem extremely simple.
As mentioned in our previous post, Evasi0n supports all 20+ variants of iOS devices, including the likes of iPhone 5, on iOS 6.0 through iOS 6.1. Apple TV 3 though is not supported.
Supported firmware versions:
iOS 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.0.2, 6.1 are all supported.
A computer running at least Windows XP or above, Mac OS X v10.5 or above, Linux
An iOS device running iOS 6.x
A USB cable for connection your iOS device to your computer.
How-to jailbreak iOS 6.1 (instructions):
If you happen to be one of those who have been waiting extremely patiently for this jailbreak, then you’ve come to the right place. Follow our extremely simple step by step guide below to jailbreak your iOS device on iOS 6 / 6.1 fully untethered.
a. It is highly recommended to make a complete backup of your device using either iTunes or iCloud before proceeding with the steps below.
b. If you happen to have followed our guide for older A4 based devices for tethered jailbreak iOS 6.1, the good news is that you can easily convert your tethered jailbreak into untethered by installing “evasi0n 6.x Untether” from Cydia.
Step 1: Download Evasi0n jailbreak tool tailored for your OS (Windows / Mac / Linux).
Step 2: Download iOS 6.1, and update your device to it using iTunes. Make sure you restore your device to 6.1 using iTunes, and not OTA, to avoid issues with jailbreak. Even though Evasi0n supports all versions of iOS 6, it is recommended to update to the latest 6.1 version before jailbreak so that you can get all the new features of iOS 6.1, with the added bonus of jailbreak.
Step 3: Make sure you don’t have any passcode set on your device. You can disable Passcode lock from: Settings –> General –> Passcode Lock –> Off
Step 4: Make sure both iTunes and Xcode (if installed) are not running.
Step 5: Start the Evasi0n jailbreak tool on your computer.
Step 6: Connect the relevant iOS device to your PC or Mac via the 30-pin or Lightning cable (depending on the generation of the hardware). Make sure that the connected hardware is recognized by the jailbreak tool.
Step 7: Select the Jailbreak option and relax as the software performs the necessary steps in the background to inject and run through the jailbreaking process.
Step 8: Be patient, do not touch your device or anything on computer during jailbreaking process.
Step 9: Once done, you will need to unlock your iOS Device, you will then see a “Jailbreak” app on the home screen. Tap on this icon, the screen will go black for a few seconds. After a short while, it will be back on the home screen.
Step 10: Rest of the process is automated, once the Evasi0n software on desktop says “Jailbreak complete!”, after a short while, your device will reboot several times to complete the process. Once this is done, you will have Cydia on the home screen.
Start Cydia from the home screen of the device. Be aware that the first run of Cydia after a jailbreak will require the owner to choose what type of user they are (user, developer or hacker) as well as a run-through of some initial repository setup. Please be patient as this could take some time depending on server load.
As always, remember that the release of any new jailbreak will always see an initial spike in activity at first release. The servers of Cydia and the stock repositories are expected to handle an unusually high load in the first few days, so expect some possible delays and frustrating moments when trying to load and refreshing data.
Joseph Cardosa, 5 years old, was participating in an after-school program at Hyannis West Elementary School on Cape Cod when school officials say he created a gun out of LEGOs, reports Fox25 Boston.
The boy’s parents told the station that the school issued Joseph an official warning, and said a second warning would lead to suspension.
“I can understand with all the things that are going on right now in schools, but on the other hand, kids are taught you know ‘here’s a squirt gun, this is fun,’ so this is fun to him, you know what I mean, he’s running around playing – a little bit of re-direction would have been enough,” mother Sheila Cruz told Fox25.
Cruz told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 that the principal had explained the gun was a “threat to other children and other children could have been scared.”
Quote:During a meeting in Geneva today the World Trade organization (WTO) authorized Antigua’s request to suspend U.S. copyrights. The decision confirmed the preliminary authorization the Caribbean island received in 2007, and means that the local authorities can move forward with their plan to start a download portal which offers movies, music and software without compensating the American companies that make them.
Today, this plan came a step closer to reality when the Caribbean country received authorization from the WTO to suspend U.S. copyrights during a meeting in Geneva.
This decision affirms the preliminary approval that was granted to Antigua in 2007 after the country won a gambling related trade dispute against the United States.
At the moment it’s still unclear what Antigua’s exact plans are but TorrentFreak is informed that the media portal will offer movies, TV-shows, music as well as software to customers worldwide.
The Government has not given a time-frame for the release of the site, which has been in the works for a few months already. Ideally, Antigua hopes to settle the dispute before opening up their free media portal but there are no signs that the U.S. is going to comply with the WTO rulings.
Thus far, the U.S. has only warned Antigua that “Government-authorized piracy” would harm the ongoing settlement discussions.
The Antiguan government further reiterated today that the term “piracy” doesn’t apply in this situation, as they are fully authorized to suspend U.S. copyrights. It is a legal remedy that was approved by all WTO members, including the United States.
If Antigua does indeed pull through, it will be rather interesting to see how the U.S. responds. It might add a whole new dimension to the ongoing “war on piracy.”
Anonymous has observed for some time now the trajectory of justice in the United States with growing concern. Wee have marked the departure of this system from the noble ideals in which it was born and enshrined. Wee have seen the erosion of due process, the dilution of constitutional rights, the usurpation of the rightful authority of courts by the "discretion" of prosecutors. Wee have seen how the law is wielded less and less to uphold justice, and more and more to exercise control, authority and power in the interests of oppression or personal gain.
Wee have been watching, and waiting.
Two weeks ago today, a line was crossed. Two weeks ago today, Aaron Swartz was killed. Killed because he faced an impossible choice. Killed because he was forced into playing a game he could not win -- a twisted and distorted perversion of justice -- a game where the only winning move was not to play.
Anonymous immediately convened an emergency council to discuss our response to this tragedy. After much heavy-hearted discussion, the decision was upheld to engage the United States Department of Justice and its associated executive branches in a game of a similar nature, a game in which the only winning move is not to play.
Last year the Federal Bureau of Investigation revelled in porcine glee at its successful infiltration of certain elements of Anonymous. This infiltration was achieved through the use of the *same tactics which lead to Aaron Swartz' death. It would not have been possible were it not for the power of federal prosecutors to thoroughly destroy the lives of any hacktivists they apprehend through the very real threat of highly disproportionate sentencing.
As a result of the FBI's infiltration and entrapment tactics, several more of our brethren now face similar disproportionate persecution, the balance of their lives hanging on the severely skewed scales of a broken justice system.
Wee have felt within our hearts a burning rage in reaction to these events, but wee have not allowed ourselves to be drawn into a foolish and premature response. Wee have bidden our time, operating in the shadows, adapting our tactics and honing our abilities. Wee have allowed the FBI and its masters in government -- both the puppet and the shadow government that controls it -- to believe they had struck a crippling blow to our infrastructure, that they had demoralized us, paralyzed us with paranoia and fear. Wee have held our tongue and waited.
With Aaron's death wee can wait no longer. The time has come to show the United States Department of Justice and its affiliates the true meaning of infiltration. The time has come to give this system a taste of its own medicine. The time has come for them to feel the helplessness and fear that comes with being forced into a game where the odds are stacked against them.
This website was chosen due to the symbolic nature of its purpose -- the federal sentencing guidelines which enable prosecutors to cheat citizens of their constitutionally-guaranteed right to a fair trial, by a jury of their peers -- the federal sentencing guidelines which are in clear violation of the 8th amendment protection against cruel and unusual punishments. This website was also chosen due to the nature of its visitors. It is far from the only government asset wee control, and wee have exercised such control for quite some time...
There has been a lot of fuss recently in the technological media regarding such operations as Red October, the widespread use of vulnerable browsers and the availability of zero-day exploits for these browsers and their plugins. None of this comes of course as any surprise to us, but it is perhaps good that those within the information security industry are making the extent of these threats more widely understood.
Still there is nothing quite as educational as a well-conducted demonstration...
Through this websites and various others that will remain unnamed, wee have been conducting our own infiltration. Wee did not restrict ourselves like the FBI to one high-profile compromise. Wee are far more ambitious, and far more capable. Over the last two weeks wee have wound down this operation, removed all traces of leakware from the compromised systems, and taken down the injection apparatus used to detect and exploit vulnerable machines.
Wee have enough fissile material for multiple warheads. Today wee are launching the first of these. Operation Last Resort has begun...
Warhead - U S - D O J - L E A - 2013 . A E E 256 is primed and armed. It has been quietly distributed to numerous mirrors over the last few days and is available for download from this website now. Wee encourage all Anonymous to syndicate this file as widely as possible.
The contents are various and wee won't ruin the speculation by revealing them. Suffice it to say, everyone has secrets, and some things are not meant to be public. At a regular interval commencing today, wee will choose one media outlet and supply them with heavily redacted partial contents of the file. Any media outlets wishing to be eligible for this program must include within their reporting a means of secure communications.
Wee have not taken this action lightly, nor without consideration of the possible consequences. Should wee be forced to reveal the trigger-key to this warhead, wee understand that there will be collateral damage. Wee appreciate that many who work within the justice system believe in those principles that it has lost, corrupted, or abandoned, that they do not bear the full responsibility for the damages caused by their occupation.
It is our hope that this warhead need never be detonated.
However, in order for there to be a peaceful resolution to this crisis, certain things need to happen. There must be reform of outdated and poorly-envisioned legislation, written to be so broadly applied as to make a felony crime out of violation of terms of service, creating in effect vast swathes of crimes, and allowing for selective punishment. There must be reform of mandatory minimum sentencing. There must be a return to proportionality of punishment with respect to actual harm caused, and consideration of motive and mens rea. The inalienable right to a presumption of innocence and the recourse to trial and possibility of exoneration must be returned to its sacred status, and not gambled away by pre-trial bargaining in the face of overwhelming sentences, unaffordable justice and disfavourable odds. Laws must be upheld unselectively, and not used as a weapon of government to make examples of those it deems threatening to its power.
For good reason the statue of lady justice is blindfolded. No more should her innocence be besmirked, her scales tipped, nor her swordhand guided. Furthermore there must be a solemn commitment to freedom of the internet, this last great common space of humanity, and to the common ownership of information to further the common good.
Wee make this statement do not expect to be negotiated with; wee do not desire to be negotiated with. Wee understand that due to the actions wee take wee exclude ourselves from the system within which solutions are found. There are others who serve that purpose, people far more respectable than us, people whose voices emerge from the light, and not the shadows. These voices are already making clear the reforms that have been necessary for some time, and are outright required now.
It is these people that the justice system, the government, and law enforcement must engage with. Their voices are already ringing strong with a chorus of determined resolution. Wee demand only that this chorus is not ignored. Wee demand the government does not make the mistake of hoping that time will dampen its ringing, that they can ride out this wave of determination, that business as usual can continue after a sufficient period of lip-service and back-patting.
Not this time. This time there will be change, or there will be chaos...
