Google maps is back for your Apple devices and it’s better than ever. It’s back with all the things we loved about it, the new Google Maps for iOS has Turn by Turn Navigation, Public Transit Directions and Street View. So you can now finally ditch Apple maps on your iOS device and get the far more superior map application that is, Google Maps.



Although Apple Maps will still be the default mapping system for your iPhone, and you cannot delete it completely (just hide it on a folder where other apps like the “Stocks” belong), it’s still a great development because you know you have access to a native Google Maps app on your device where you can use the much loved Turn by Turn Navigation, Public Transit Directions and Street View.

You can download Google Maps from the App store here.

How to Dehash your PS3

This tutorial is very important for all PS3 owners who have downgraded their PS3’s, (may it be from OFW 3.55+ and used hardware flashers to downgrade back to 3.55, or for those who downgraded from Rogero 3.xx and above) and would like to install the latest Rogero Custom Firmware. What Dehashing basically does is it […]

This tutorial is very important for all PS3 owners who have downgraded their PS3’s, (may it be from OFW 3.55+ and used hardware flashers to downgrade back to 3.55, or for those who downgraded from Rogero 3.xx and above) and would like to install the latest Rogero Custom Firmware.

What Dehashing basically does is it resets the PS3’s Syscon hashes back to 3.55 with both “ros0” and “ros1”, making your PS3 back into an original/non-downgraded state and you do not need to worry about disabling LV1 checks when you install any CEX/DEX or the latest PS3 Official Firmware.

(The first part is basically the same with my other tutorial about how to Toggle QA flag on your PS3, Toggle QA only works in 3.55 OFW or CFW)

Here’s How to Dehash your PS3:

1. Download QA Toggle pkg here
2. Copy the file to the root of your USB or external HD
3. Insert your USB/External HD to your PS3
4. On your PS3, go to “Install package Files” and install the QA Toggle PKG
5. Once installed, run the “Rebug Toggle QA” on your PS3, (The screen will go Black and you will hear 2 or 3 Beeps and when finished it will go back to the PS3′s XMB, and if error comes up, just repeat this step.)
6. Go to “Network Settings” (do not open it) then all at the same time, press the following key combo : L1 + L2 + L3 (press left stick) + R1 + R2 + dpad_down (its hard you might want to get an extra hand for this)
7. If the QA Flag was done correctly, you will see Edy Viewer, Debug Settings, and Install Package Files.

Now you have a Dehashed PS3 and the next step is to go to recovery mode.

Here’s is how to activate recovery mode on your PS3:

1. While your PS3 is on, turn it off by pressing and holding the power button until it turns off
2. When the PS3 is OFF, press and hold the power button until you hear two beeps
3. When this happens, the PS3 should boot up in recovery Mode (if it does not, repeat steps 1 and 2)

When you are now in recovery mode, you can now install any firmware that you want, may it be Rogero 4.30 or the Latest Official Firmware from Sony. (just select option 6)

Basically, UseNeXT is a subscription-based service that allows you to access view and download files from Usenet newsgroups and discussions boards.

From the search, you can also add filters to help narrow down the results to only show you files of your interest and be able to easily download them. Another good thing about their client is that it can repair files you have downloaded when something has gone wrong, this is extremely useful especially when you have a few gigs worth of downloads and you do not want to start over again.

How to Toggle QA

A reader of this site gave me the idea to make a tutorial on How to Toggle QA flag, although I should have made this separate post earlier. This is for people who were asking How to Toggle QA so I would not have to answer each question one by one. Anyway, hope this helps. […]

Note: Toggle QA will only work on 3.55 OFW or CFW (Will not work on 4.21/4.30 etc…)

Here’s how to Enable QA Toggle flag:

    1. Download QA Toggle pkg here
    2. Copy the file to the root of your USB or external HD
    3. Insert your USB/External HD to your PS3
    4. On your PS3, go to “Install package Files” and install the QA Toggle PKG
    5. Once installed, run the “Rebug Toggle QA” on your PS3, (The screen will go Black and you will hear 2 or 3 Beeps and when finished it will go back to the PS3’s XMB, and if error comes up, just repeat this step.)
    6. Go to “Network Settings” (do not open it) then all at the same time, press the following key combo : L1 + L2 + L3 (press left stick) + R1 + R2 + dpad_down (its hard you might want to get an extra hand for this)
    7. If the QA Flag was done correctly, you will see Edy Viewer, Debug Settings, and Install Package Files.

Now we can install either an Official Firmware 3.55 ( do not install any OFW higher than 3.55!), or 3.55 Kmeaw or Rogero 3.55. Here’s How to install Rogero 4.30 on your PS3
