“Too many people are so ungrateful to be alive. But not you! Not anymore! Game Over!! ” – Jigsaw

None of us can forget Jigsaw killer. Can we? Test yourself whether you can survive, putting in a situation below.

Yourself “X” and two of your friends “Y” and “Z” are caught by the Jigsaw killer and he wanna play a life challenging Game as usual 🙂

So this is the situation. He made 3 of you stand in a queue facing a wall and you being the first most guy. He shows you all, 5 different caps. 2 Black ones and 3 White ones. He is going to place 3 random caps on you people. “Z” being the last guy in queue, he can see you “X” and “Y”‘s hats color. And Mr.Y can see only your hat color and you cant see any hats.

So the game is, if none of know the color of their own hat, all three will be visited by homicide next day :). Any attempts to communicate between each other is against the rule.

He first ask “Z” after 2 mins time. He says he doesn’t know. Then he asks “Y” after 4 mins, he also doesn’t know. You have 2 more mins before he asks you. If you also couldn’t figure out you all three will be Jigsaw’s victims. 

What would your answer be abiding by the rules? 🙂

Hey guys,

Below one is an interesting puzzle.

There was an old bridge which can balance only 10 Tons. Any vehicle weighing more than 10 tons will collapse the bridge.

A 24-Wheeler Truck was planned to carry wooden logs thru the bridge. And it was made sure that the truck weighs exactly 10 tons.

When the truck crossed halfway a sparrow came and sat on the truck. But still bridge didn’t collapse.

Find the reason why bridge didn’t collapse?

Cheers,

Hey Fellas,

Its been a while. Isn’t it? I have come up with another brain teaser puzzle, which is quite simple if we think right.

Once there was a group of pirates headed by Captain Francis Verney. One night Francis got a question that who among the group would be smart enough to lead the group after he steps down.

So he decided to conduct series of tests, to find the most smart one. As we all know testing the intelligence of pirates is not that simple, as they are clever and rational in nature.

Francis picks up 9 hats, a mix of white hats and black hats. He placed the hats on 9 pirates head and mentioned them that they should not talk and there is at least 1 white hat and black hats count is more than white hats.

Obviously they can’t see their own hat but they can see the color of other 8 hats. If they guess wrong, their head will be blown. Francis gave them 20 mins time to figure out, but no one could.

So he gave another 10 mins. But still everyone kept quite. Finally he gave them 5 mins, and at the end all 9 knows their hat color, and all answered same time.

Think about the logic that pirates used to figure out.

Cheers!

W!ld F!re in your Farm Field

Hi all,

I came across this brain teaser recently.

Imagine yourself standing in the center of your huge square shaped farm field. Suddenly you feel a mild wind and then you realize one end of your farm got caught with wild fire.

Fire started spreading towards the other end of the farm as the wind glows in that direction.

You are right in the middle of the farm. As the fire is spreading too fast, it is impossible to save your farm, and you should try to save your life.

Obviously the right decision will be to run towards the other end of the farm as fast as you can, but unfortunately fire spreads faster than you think and it will reach you before you can reach the end.

How will you survive?

Interesting isn’t it? Give a try friends!

Cheers!

 

Friends,

There was a friends get together event, after a long time. And everyone shake hands with every friend.

If there was total #66 handshakes, find the number of friends met up that evening.

Have a good day!

Cheers!

 

Hi all,

Below is a simple logical puzzle which i came across recently. There were 3 Greek philosophers, walking together having a discussion about “Why does anything exist?”.

As they got tired, they decided to take some nap under a tree. Once they r asleep, 3 owls came and dropped shit on each philosophers head and flew away with some noise, which made them all awake.

By seeing other two of them, all philosophers started laughing.  But one smart philosopher stopped laughing abruptly, realizing the fact.

How did he found out?

Sorry if its silly, but i found the answer interesting 🙂

Good Day!

This post is about, What, Why and How regarding Custom ROMS.

What
As I have explained in my previous posts, the term ROM in Android terminology is not the hardware which we knew (Read Only Memory).
An android ROM is an image consisting of Kernel,Andoid Firmware,Bloatware(default system apps).
The default ROM given by vendors like LG, Samsung are called Stock ROMS(Customised Googles stock ROM).
Stock ROMS might have some crapware which will not be able to uninstalled and hence the wastage of resources, which makes you feel, you dont have complete control on your phone. Since Android is open source, so many developers are working on making of ROMs specific to a device, by building from sources. These are the Custom ROMS, having only essential apps, tweaked kernel for best performance and Overclocking CPU, customized android firmware to make it look awesome and work smoother.

Why
Having Custom ROM in your device makes you the complete owner(superuser) of it. You wont see any app unnecessary, customizations will make your phone perform fast and smooth and prolonged battery life too. And more over there are so many flavors of ROMS being developed, like gaming, performance, and battery etc., choose the right choice of yours and flash it. So there is nothing that you need to be compromised of, as your phone looks fresh,clean and robust always.

How
Most of the andoid devices have yaffs2 filesystem(NAND based flash memory). Each device flash memory is partitioned mainly as /system, /data, /boot, /recovery, /cache.
I will explain the significance of each partitions in my next post. I told about these partitions as they play the major role while installing.

First step after rooting is to have custom recovery. Custom recovery is a tool to manage all your partitions, to take backup of rom, restore old roms, and lot more.
ROM manager(root app) can flash the ClockWorkMod, a well known custom recovery.
Once you have chosen your ROM to flash, following are the steps.

  • boot into custom recovery
  • wipe /data, /system, /cache and wipe dalvik cache too.
  • select “install zip from sdcard” and choose your ROM.

It installs and takes time for the first boot, and Voila you have a custom ROM.

Note:  These steps are specific for devices and different ROMS. So make sure you follow the right instructions for your device. Mine would give you a rough idea of what needs to be done. After checking mutiple posts, reviews and understanding completely, take this risk.

Disclaimer: As you are playing with the flash memory partitions, any wrong step can brick your device. After that if you point finger on me, I will laugh at you. So understand what your are doing and take responsibility if you screw up.
