Hi guys,

I’ve decided to move my blog. It is still Rudi’s Electronics Blog.

I will occasionally maintain this WordPress blog, like replying messages and comments.
But for the new posts, I will post them on the new address.



Data logging using ez430-Chronos watch (Part 2: Downloader)

November 21, 2010 at 4:16 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 21 Comments

I am glad that there are few people actually use the firmware to log the accelerometer data from the ez430-watch.
Some of them asked when I can release the Windows application to download the data to PC and setup the watch.

So guys, you can now download the code as I just released them.

Remember, you need to include the ez430chronosnet and zedgraph libraries to your project/solutions.

Sony Ericsson White Screen of Death

May 16, 2008 at 7:47 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Moments ago, my wife’s phone Sony Ericsson K800i crashed!!
It was displaying the white screen of death. Nothing we could do about it. I could not go to the menu or setting. Hopeless!

“Configuration Error : Contact your network or service provider error”

Downloading and running the Update Service software from the Sony Ericsson website did not help. It is useless.

Thanks to Akshay for his solution. Basically, we need to (sort of) reflash the firmware using the XS++ software.

This video tutorial about XS++ is also useful.
