iOS7's Broken!

I don't think this gotta happen so soon before Christmas until I see evad3rs' evasi0n7, this indeed a great xmas gift for those who waited for long.

I'm not going to brake the jail soon as I have little time for myself to fully customize my iPhone4, and that many great apps are free, even paid apps are free for limited time at times.

Just be sure to backup despite the extended time needed.

iPhone with box of Windows XP x64

26th Sep added screenshots
19th Sep updated w/ iTunes 11.1 update.

I am not an Apple fan, not fancy to i-products, and ever since I received a secondhand iPhone4, I was amazed by its simplicity, and lazidity (yup, rigidity + laziness).

Usually I'll set my own ringtones but this time with iPhone I was stucked as I could not perform as I wish within iPhone settings (unless a jail-broken one).

So after few months using a plain tone iPhone, finally I decided to connect it to my old box of 64bit Windows XP, thought to modify the ringtone with iTunes. And yet another quest on looking for the way to get software installed into a x64 system went on, as iTunes is not designed to even install into the abandoned x64.

I found Dan's Skunk Werks' awesome article to inspire me to install the minimalist SuperOrca MSI Editor rather than MS's big fat GB-level SDK.

After officially downloaded iTunes setup .msi .exe I opened it using 7-zip to extract the following files: iTunes.msi, Bonjour.msi & AppleMobileDeviceSupport.msi all files into a folder.

Next I opened each of them iTunes64.msi & AppleApplicationSupport.msi with SuperOrca, and change "VersionNT64>=600" to "VersionNT64>=501" in table "LaunchCondition". The .msi files will immediately changed without the need to save. Then I executed each of the altered .msi files iTunes64, AppleMobileDeviceSupport64, AppleApplicationSupport & Bonjour64 in order.

Should AppleMobileDeviceSupport64.msi pops up with:
"[ProductName] requires that your computer is running Windows XP SP2 or newer."
kindly edit the .msi file with SuperOrca, locate the same "LaunchCondition", change the *Condition to:
"Installed OR (VersionNT=501 AND ServicePackLevel>=2) OR VersionNT>501"

You might get this for the first time running iTunes:
x64 iTunes
Just ignore and you'll get the real thing:
iTunes get started!

Apple Mobile Device failed
Retry or Ignore

With all the above mentioned steps you supposed to get ready to connect your iPhone to your Windows XP x64. But few weeks then until now guess what, lazy me still using the plain tone iPhone, thinking to jail-break straight my old iPhone4.

Sudden Gifted Self Exercise Movements

Last week I encountered an adult male patient of mine who allegedly having the ability to perform stretches and mobility exercises himself. After watching on his recorded film, I would say those are involuntary, yet structured movements. He is sure that he did not know any of those sequenced movements prior. Neurologist prescripts medicine to stop them while orthopedic surgeon says they are of no harm but good. (probably just to assure him do not panic)

I never thought of Tourette's syndrome, but "structured" chorea because those movements are so organised, consist of neck rotations, shoulder shrugs etc., in sequence, that people may think he is actually doing exercise.

Lately he said he is able to control when to begin and stop the movements.

Just googled to find out the correlation between Sydenham's chorea and streptococcal rheumatic fever, which further convince me that his self exercise "gift" may be related with his earlier fever cough. Wonder if doctor prescripts steroids and antibiotics. Anyway hope he is getting better, not like Cali's progression:

Ah, now I know why she is taking CoQ10 supplement, which is good for heart.
