N900: Infrared Remote Control

1. pierogi
2. qtirreco

Pierogi is working great but remote control list is far from complete but enough to support most of TV, DVD, VCR, audio and more. But if we can manually create remote, or edit the available remote, this could be more than just enough.

Qtirreco is not working. I have tested version 0.30 and 0.31. The actual problem is I can't download remote list, it says HTTP failed.

N900 NITDroid Error

I was trying to install NITDroid N12 UMay and its kernel 07_rc4. Firstly I try using auto-installer 2.8.8 but to no avail, there was an error when I want to dpkg kernel, something related to permission. Then I was using the second method by repartitioning eMMC to make home folder 2GB. Successfully dpkg the kernel. Then I reboot, and choose 2 for NITDroid, then strange things happen. At first it loaded smoothly then suddenly there was an error, then after that, I can't boot both Maemo and NITDroid.

I want to flash back but to no avail, maybe it is because I am using Windows 7 (and I have tried both 32 and 64 bit). After trying for hours, I try to flash kernel only, and it works!
I use this command to flash kernel only, and this is PR 1.3, newest is 1.3.1.
flasher-3.5.exe -F RX-51_2009SE_20.2010.36-2_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin --flash-only=kernel -f
Psst: Maybe I will try this NITDroid next time :D

Using Replace (String Function) in Visual Basic 6

Example: I want to replace "a" with "A" in Textbox1 and put the replaced string into Textbox2.
You can't use it directly like this.

Text2.Text = Replace(Text1.Text, "a", "A")

You must make use of variable, like this.

Dim TempVar As String
TempVar = Replace(Text1.Text, "a", "A")
Text2.Text = TempVar

Then the code will work. More info here.
