Troubleshooting Iberry smartphone facebook problem..

I have been asked by many that their iberry device has pre-installed Facebook app but they are unable to use it. When they try to open the app, it open for some time and closes instantly.
When I purchased iberry Auxus Nuclea X (Black) smartphone, I also faced the same problem. I tried to find the solution for many days but remain unsuccessful until I found out that only solution is to root it. I have tried many rooting technique, only technique that worked for this phone is using Root Genius.

Root genius is one click root tool designed to use with windows computer. It helps user to root their android device by one click.

How to root using Root Genius

Step1. Enable USB debugging. Goto Setting> Developers Option> USB debugging> tick

USB Debugging

Step2.  Download and install root genius application in your computer.

Step3. Connect your android device (with USB cable) with USB Debugging enabled(Step1). Root genius will automatically detect you android device if you follow the above steps carefully.

Step4.  Click on ‘Root Now’ button to root your connected device.

Root Genius
Step5. King user app will be installed on your device after some time.

King User

Step6. You can check in your app list whether ‘king user’ is installed or not. You can also check the rooting by using Root Checker.

Step 7. If all goes well, your Facebook problem will be solved. You can check it out by opening Facebook app.

Rooting has added benefit that it will be open for any app to be installed without restrictions like call recorders etc.

Points to be noted before rooting.

1.    Your warranty is void after rooting.
2.    No data loss in the process. It is very safe.

THE PM Modi's 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyan'…….a great success

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s led 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyan' which has started on 2nd Oct on the auspicious occasion of birth anniversary of our Rastrapita Mahatma Gandhi, has been proved a great success as large number of people has participated in this grand event.

It is the biggest ever cleanliness and sanitation drive in the country. The mega event like this has not been witnessed by me in the past. This is great initiative by our beloved Prime Minister to make us realize our duty towards our country. He has also physically participated in the cleanliness drive to motivate us.

A 'clean India' by 2019 when the nation will mark 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi is the vision driving the mission.

Generally 2nd Oct is regarded as a National Holiday and all offices, school, colleges remain closed on that day, but the PM has made the day useful by announcing the drive to clean their office, school, college premises, toilets and surrounding areas. In our office too, this cleanliness mission is going on since 28th sept. to 4th oct., and it will be continued in the future too. This will be best tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his birthday anniversary.

Government has allocated funds to each ministries like Railway ministry, HRD ministry, Urban and Rural development ministries, Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation to do their part to make the ‘clean India’ mission a success. Many experts has been assigned to recommend best technologies for the campaign.

These fund allocation has been done in the past too, but how much investment has been made to sincerely do the job was a big question. Whenever there is fund allocation for a particular mission and is handed over to the people, there is no guarantee the job will be done until and unless they are particularly told what jobs have to be done. There should also be proper inspection about the quality of the job done. Then only the mission which our PM has started will be possible.

If each and every Indians (including ministries) do their duty without compromising, then in no time the dream of ‘clean India’ will be fulfilled.

Real Flexible displays are not far away

In our previous post, we had talked about flexible batteries which will enable the future devices to be made flexible. In this post we will talk about development in the field of real flexible display.

  • Flexible Display

A flexible display is a display which is flexible in nature; differentiable from the more prevalent traditional flat screen displays used in most electronics devices this is not just bendable or curved display which is now a day available in the market. We are talking about the display which can be rolled in your hand or can be wrapped in your hand. Let’s talk about the technology behind on which scientist are working on.

  • Electrophoretic, or, electronic ink

E Ink is the creator of electrophoretic, or, electronic ink — the optical component of a film used in Electronic Paper Displays (EPD). These are designed to mimic the appearance of ordinary ink on paper.

Characteristics of E-Ink

  • Bistable

E Ink's technology is commonly referred to as "bistable". What does this mean? Bistable means that the image on an E Ink screen will be retained even when all power sources are removed. In practice, this means that the display is consuming power only when something is changing. For example, when reading on an eReader, power is only needed when turning to a new page but no power is consumed by the display while reading the page. This is most noticeable when an eReader goes into sleep mode yet there is still an image being displayed. By contrast, with a traditional LCD, the display is needs to be refreshed around 30X per second, regardless of the whether anything new is being displayed. Bistability significantly reduces the power consumption of displays using E Ink and is a key reason eReaders have such long battery life.
  • Reflective Displays

E Ink displays are also referred to as "reflective displays." In an LCD, or "emissive display", light from a backlight is projected through the display towards your eyes. In an E Ink display, no backlight is used; rather, ambient light from the environment is reflected from the surface of the display back to your eyes. As with any reflective surface, the more ambient light, the brighter the display looks. The backlight can also consume up to 40% of the power used in electronic product. Therefore, eliminating the need for a backlight significantly increases the battery life versus using a traditional LCD.

Flexible electrophoretic displays (EPDs)

While the Ink film is currently fully flexible, it necessitate the manufacturing of TFT on non-glass substrate to make it fully flexible. It has been made possible by use of a polyimide plastic TFT backplane (also called as All-printed Organic Thin Film Transistor Backplane), which is laminated to the ink layer. These are All-printed Organic TFT Backplane Using a flexible TFT allows for a lighter display module and a more rugged display solution.
Schematic structure of flexible EPD

For applications such as cell phones or hand-held devices, the use of a plastic TFT can be augmented by a layer of unbreakable glass on the front of the display to give stiffness to a device which requires significant touch interaction, but still provides an increased ruggedness. In these types of devices the TFT itself is often the component that fails when dropped, rather than the top plane glass. A plastic TFT can significantly reduce display failure due to those drops.

This technology is successfully employed in E-readers, Displays embedded in smart cards, Status displays, and digital photo frames etc. as the display is monochromatic. Researches are being carried out by using liquid crystal (LCD) and organic light emitting diodes (OLED) technology to produce color images.

As we have seen in the schematic of flexible EPDs, there is transparent conductive film which act as top electrode for EPDs. Now a days Research around the world has been looking at different avenues for applying graphene to flexible displays, where it offers a potential alternative to the relatively scarce indium tin oxide (ITO), which is used as a transparent conductor to control display pixels. This will enable the manufactures to make low cost grapheme based flexible display in near future.
