N900 not updating repositories
This program should save a lot of people (including myself) time in weaponizing their Nokia N900s.I am writing this right after I was just about to pull my hair out due to the fact that I rely on my N900 as my primary phone (which is not necessarily the greatest idea if you tinker with it quite a bit).Pertaining to the i Phone, I think this video gives you really good technical insight into the tracking issue: Now onto my beloved Nokia N900.I have taken steps towards anonymizing the N900 and I will show you what I did.
(See: ) What is ironic, is that from my personal experience and information gathering locally, a lot of people seem to not care about this or privacy.( ) This concerns me a bit because I’m a resident of Michigan…( I hope this information is helpful to you and if you have anymore ideas on anonymizing the Nokia N900 please feel free to send me an e-mail or leave a comment.4.) If you’re planning on using the N900 as a tablet and do not want to be tracked via triangulation, to mitigate this you can do as follows: a.) Pull up the terminal and make sure you are root.
(sudo gainroot) b.) You also want to make sure you have enabled the extra repositories c.) Install this following application via: apt-get install cell-modem-ui -y d.) Now to enable the tablet mode and mitigate the possibility of being tracked via triangulation, click the power button on the top of the N900 and a new button should be there that says, ‘Tablet’ e.) Simply tap on this, and your N900 is now just acting as an internet tablet.
I think this is where the government needs to step in and do something.
