Canon EOS Rebel XTi (400D) with Digikam 
Thursday, June 7, 2007, 12:38 PM - Programs
Problem: Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTI is not supported after install.


Open a terminal and redirect output to a text file:

for dev in `ls /sys/bus/usb/devices`; do udevinfo -ap /sys/bus/usb/devices/$dev; done > /home/yourusername/udevinfo.txt

Open the udevinfo.txt and search for canon

It will look like this:

looking at device '/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb5/5-5':
SYSFS{product}=="Canon Digital Camera"
SYSFS{manufacturer}=="Canon Inc."
SYSFS{version}==" 2.00"
SYSFS{idProduct}=="3110" <--------
SYSFS{idVendor}=="04a9" <--------
SYSFS{bMaxPower}==" 2mA"
SYSFS{bNumInterfaces}==" 1"

Open /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libgphoto2.rules

sudo nano -w /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libgphoto2.rules

Add the following lines at the bottom of the file, just before LABEL="libgphoto2_rules_end"

SYSFS{idVendor}=="YOURIDVENDOR", SYSFS{idProduct}=="YOURIDPRODUCT", MODE="0660", GROUP="plugdev"

For me it was:

SYSFS{idVendor}=="04a9", SYSFS{idProduct}=="3110", MODE="0660", GROUP="plugdev"

Restart udev


sudo /etc/init.d/udev restart

via: ... hlight=xti

i got sick of searching for it over and over again.

So we adopted some kids.... 
Tuesday, May 29, 2007, 07:08 PM - Family
While reading the thrifty nickel on our way to Lava Hot Springs we came across these guys.

We picked them up from a real red-neck farmer. We picked both up for 80$. They will be priceless in our war with the weeds in the yard. No names have been picked out yet, but i'm sure something suiting will come sooner or later. Right now all they do is sit there shivering in fear. In a couple days and a new pen later they will be good to go.

Big Juds (Super Burgers) 
Thursday, April 12, 2007, 11:59 AM - Family
We went to Big Juds again, i went with dan last week and could help myself and went again. This time i brought my camera to show how big the 2 pound burger is that we ate. We each ate half. Tonight we (me, wife, and kid) went with Willie and his family. I ate half of our 2 pounder. In the one pic you can see our 2 pounder compared to his single pound. Oh baby. Good Stuff!!

(cherry iron-port to wash it down)

Heh, silly BYUI kids... 
Monday, February 19, 2007, 04:10 AM
While out and about looking for somewhere to go shoot my guns, we came across a couple guys who needed a ride abck to thier car. I picked them up and took them to thier car. Ya, they got into a bit of water. The air intake of the car started to suck in water and killed the engine. They had a tow strap so that i could pull them out, after they got to high ground they opened the doors and water started gushing out of the interior of the car. hehe. Silly kids.

Adding media to a Razr V3m 
Monday, January 8, 2007, 08:00 PM - Hacks
My wife got a pink razr, we tried to put new ringtones on it, but it seems we are "locked out"... riiiiight. Locked out my butt! After some digging i found out how...

OK, so u can charge your phone on the usb port? And u have mpt 4.21a installed? And the last step we need to do is enable multimedia studio so u can add ringtones.

ok. u need to download 2 programs.
1) MSU (motorola software updater) this will get your phone into the correct mode to edit the seem files.
2) P2Kseem - this is what we will use to change the seem files.
here is a link to where u can download them...
Just download them, dont install them yet.

k. plug in phone, make sure it is in as usb modem. then run and install MSU 1st. U will be prompted with a series of 3 or 4 drivers, choose automatic install for all of them. Once done, it should display a box and show your ESN # on the left hand side. Let me know when u get to that point.

ok, go into device manager, and u should see:

Motorola USB Device
->Accessories Interface
->Data Logging MCU Interface
->Test Command Interface

If so, proceed to install and run p2kseem.

in the lower right side of the screen, there is a "load" box. Next to seem, type 2742. Leave record as 1. Then above that, change bytes to 0000. Then hit load from phone.

ok, u are probably looking at a whole bunch of stuff u dont recognize, haha. Now we are going to save a copy of your original seem. Click save to file in lower right corner. Pick a spot on ur comp. u have just saved ur original file. After that, we will do our 1st couple seem edits.

ok, now we are going to do the 2 seem edits to get your phone to work with mpt and multimedia.

1) enable USB file transfer. scroll down to the row 000060. Then use the right arrow until u get to Offset 006a. The top box (Bit 0) should be empty, and it should say Bluetooth or USB file transfer in MPT and E815 BT OBEX. Checkmark that box to turn it on

once you checkmark it, click "save to PHONE" it will ask if u are sure, say yes.

Now, we are going to load up a new seem file. Last time we did seem:2742, record:1, bytes:0000 This time, seem:2827, record:1, bytes:22 Then hit load from phone. Click save to file again to save this original seem.

Once you get that seem loaded and saved, we can change it.

Go to offset 0006. Then checkmark the boxes 0,2,3,6. Leave 1,4,5,7 empty. If u look in the upper right hand corner, u should now see:


Once u do that, click save to phone, when asked to verify, click yes again.

Now we have successfully changed 2 seem edits. The 1st enabled usb file transfer. This 2nd one will enable multimedia auto-detection for the phone as a v3mM (where the last M stands for multimedia)

Once done, and u have saved this to the phone, click Restart Phone. It will go thru a series of events. Once it says connected in the lower left corner again, u can close out of p2k seem ,and MSU, and unplug ur phone, plug it back in. Start MPT and u should see multimedia automatically enabled!

-You may have to rescan for a new phone, but it does work.
