SeaSurf 1.3 for Android

Good morning world, SeaSurf 1.3 for Android has been released to the public and adds a new feature and a major bug fixed.

Remember that time when you are viewing a webpage that you LOVE and want to email it to someone. Only SeaSurf for Linux allowed you to see the current URL, so for Android it wouldn’t of been a possibility. Now that SeaSurf for Windows has had this fixed, I chose to fix it in the Android version too!

The new feature is displaying the time in the toolbar. This is a handy feature for people who don’t want to hesitate to look at the time in their tablet’s status bar while surfing the web. You can now see the time right in the toolbar.

Currently known bugs:

Digital clock positioned incorrectly in the toolbar.

Why your device isn’t getting the latest Android

Hi guys! Have you ever visited, and you saw a new version. You checked your Android device for an update. No update is available. Here is why:

When Google release a new version of Android, your device Manufacturer decides whether or not your device should get updated to it. If they decide an update should arrive, they have to optimise it for your device. This may take a few months.

If they decide not to release the update for your device, no update will be made available.

Hope you now know why your Android device may not be getting updated!

Updating from Raspbian Wheezy to Raspbian Jessie

WARNING: Upgrading to jessie using this method is not supported and could be at your own risk. Please backup your SD Card before starting!

First, open up the terminal and check you have the latest Raspbian Wheezy:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Then type:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list and change wheezy to jessie so It reads:

deb jessie main contrib non-free rpi
# Uncomment line below then ‘apt-get update’ to enable ‘apt-get source’
#deb-src jessie main contrib non-free rpi

Save and then type:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/raspi.list

Change wheezy to jessie and add ui to the end so that it reads:

deb jessie main ui
# Uncomment line below then ‘apt-get update’ to enable ‘apt-get source’
#deb-src jessie main ui

Save and then type:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

sudo rpi-update

WARNING: Depending on your internet speed and space left on your SD Card this could take a long time!

Finally, type:

sudo reboot

Once your Pi has rebooted, type into the terminal:

cat /etc/os-release

You should see the following:

PRETTY_NAME=”Raspbian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie)”
NAME=”Raspbian GNU/Linux”
VERSION=”8 (jessie)”

If you do, then you have successfully upgraded your system to Raspbian Jessie!

If you still see wheezy instead of jessie then you may not of upgraded properly! Repeat the process.

If you are having problems, please comment on this post!
