So I didn’t get funding from Burning Man. It’s a huge bummer but I’m not letting it deter me. We’re currently in the process of getting a Kickstarter funding project together so keep an eye out for it. I’ll include a link to it here.
Let me know if you’re interested in helping out!
I need to follow up on the jailbreak post I had last year. I got my hands on a few new iPhone 4’s now that we upgraded to iPhone 5. These have now been jailbroken on iOS 6.2 and I’m continuing the configuration based on the http://www.ohscope.com/2009/02/24/serial-port-on-iphone-with-minicom/ instructions.
> ssh -l root 10.0.1.12
> cd ../../usr
> mkdir etc
> minicom -s
# follow instructions from ohscope on setting up the serial port
> cd /usr/etc
Good to go!
So I decided to treat myself for my birthday and upgraded my MacBook Pro to the new 15″ retina. Very fun. Migrating over has been mostly trouble free but there were a couple of issues. I prioritized getting the Teensy and Arduino build environments up and running. Nothing strenuous but there was a small code change necessary. Download and install:
- https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-GFX-Library [Graphics Library]
- https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_SSD1306 [OLED code]
- https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-WS2801-Library [RGB LED strand]
- http://www.pjrc.com/teensy/td_download.html – This includes the XBee library and other libraries modified for used by the ARM platform
And that was it! The makefiles needed a little modification to refer to the Arduino / Teensyduino installation but that was it. Compiling 10 times faster!
