How to free ROM in Idea Blade


Idea blade is coming with a ROM of 256 MB and user space will be nearly 60 MB. Once you start installing applications or updating it free memory will be decreased. Here are some useful ideas to free up your ROM.

Many pre-installed applications get updates via Google Play. Once you update these applications it is not ORIGINALLY updating the app but installing a newer version which in turn eat your internal memory. That is why when yo reset your system, your applications are able to return to original version.

There is an application called Apps2Rom is available to download. It helps to check if your device has duplicated applications. i.e., original application in ROM and its updated version. Your phone should be rooted to use this application. Once you open this app, you can see the list of applications in it. If any application is duplicated, (this can be identified by looking into the dot near the application. If you see two green dots near any application it means it is duplicated) you can replace your old version with latest one. By doing is you are uninstalling factory installed application and installing a fresher version. Further updates to this version will not create any duplicates.

Also, if your phone is rooted, you can try uninstalling your factory installed applications such as games, facebook,twitter,youtube,opera mini etc. This can save a lot of space. Many applications such as Root Uninstall and Root uninstaller etc, are available in Google Play for download. Try these.

These techniques are not limited to Idea Blade and can be tried in all supported Android devices.

How to receive files over bluetooth in Ubuntu


Ubuntu is like that, everything is there but hide by default and will make a smile on our lips thinking “Oh was it there already!”. Well, everyone would be transferring and receiving files between your devices, either mobile or laptop or netbook or whatsoever.

Likewise in Windows, file sending is enabled and receiving is blocked in Ubuntu by default for security. But you cannot find and enable receive option in bluetooth settings menu in Ubuntu. This is kept somewhere else named Personal File Sharing. In latest Ubuntu 11.10 it is preinstalled and in some older versions you may need to install the same from Software Center. Open Personal File Sharing and you can see an option ‘Receive files over Bluetooth’ and is disabled. Enable it by clicking on the check box and choose accept files always/only from setup device. Thats it.
