How to activate USB mass storage and developer options on CyanogenMod

For over three years I’m a user of Android smartphones. At first with Motorola Defy, then Samsung’s Galaxy S2. What both of these devices have in common, is the fact, that both were not running the original ROM for a long time. Too much trash, too much unnecessary, pre-installed software and really to less updates.
Both devices got the CyanogenMod-ROM, one of the most famous mods for Android devices. And because I like to be up to date and also like to try out experimental features, I flash my Samsung Galaxy S2 regularly with the so called nightly builds. (Nightly-Builds = daily updated version directly from the developers. Bleeding edge but not always 100% stable.)
[aawp box=”1491974052″ template=”list”]With the latest CyanogenMod version (10.1), two features have disappeared, so far. On the one hand the possibility to use the phone as a mass storage device on your PC and on the other hand […]

Update: HNBK.plan 1.0.8 released

hnbk.plan-1.0.8_screenshotThe last update for the HNBK.plan app is already again a while. Today I’ll present you a new release. HNBK.plan in version 1.0.8. But please don’t expect great innovations. I only removed one silly bug that has been created through the new year. The current version can be found in the main article for the app. (Follow the link below.)

For the nerds there’s something to smile. The error, that had crept in, was one to hit your head on the table… But take a look for yourself…
Old line:
String planUrl = "http://217.78.137.198:64004/c/" +kw + "/c" + createClassPath() + ".htm";
Fixed line:
String planUrl = "http://217.78.137.198:64004/c/" + (((kw + "").length() == 1) ? "0"+kw : kw) + "/c" + createClassPath() + ".htm";

HNBK.plan – a substitute schedule app for the Heinz-Nixdorf-Berufskolleg

May I introduce to you? HNBK.plan – a substitute schedule app for the HNBK (Heinz-Nixdorf-Berufskolleg) in Essen, NRW. Since the online representation of the plan unfortunately is very awkward to reach and the operation via smartphone resembles a true odyssey, I thought it was time for an app. So I took time to learn the Android app development basics. To put it in a nutshell – I created my first native Android app, which can be downloaded by you from now on.
