Anet A8 Board Version 1.5 und Marlin Firmware

Falls jemand auch in den “Genuss” kam einen Anet A8 Drucker zu erwerben, welcher Out of the Box keine Sicherheitsfunktionen wie “Thermal Runaway” etc besitzt. Dem sei gesagt, wenn ihr eine Mainboard Revision 1_5 (1.5) habt, ist es gar nicht so einfach Marlin oder eine andere Custom Firmware zu flashen. Der Grund scheint hier wohl ein defekter oder zu großer Bootloader zu sein.

Ich habe nun einige Tage damit verbracht, herauszufinden warum es nicht auf dem normalen Weg mit der Arduino IDE nicht klappt. Am Ende bin ich dazu übergegangen, das ganze mit einem ISP Programmer zu erledigen. Was anfangs auch nicht ganz einfach war, ich komme nicht aus der Microcontroller Welt ,)

Das erste mal Vodafone (Mobil)! (Update 16.07)

Moin Folks!

Lange hatte ich kein passenden Thema für einen Blogpost. LineageOS hat sich auch mehr ins XDA Forum verschoben, OS X Betas hier machen irgendwie keinen Sinn mehr, nachdem Apple Public Betas anbietet.

Jetzt hab ich ein ganz anderes Thema, ich muss es mir einfach von der Seele reden (schreiben). Denn an der Hotline, kann ich nur mit einer ganz schlecht gemachten Alexa sprechen die mich immer abweist 🙁
Ihr merkt schon Yet Another Customer Report… Gähn. Jaja aber der hier hat schon fast Abenteuercharakter, glaubt mir 😉

Vorgeschichte, ich war lange Kunde bei der Telekom im Bereich Mobilfunk, danach bei Congstar. Hatte bei Congstar auch eigentlich nie Probleme aber die Ansprüche wachsen hald mit zunehmenden Alter! Ich war zwar Altkunde mit PostPaid und LTE aber hald bekannt mageren Geschwindigkeiten und eher weniger inkl. Volumen. Also mal umgeschaut und da bin ich bei Vodafone hängen geblieben. Vor einigen Wochen mal auf der Homepage mit einem Kundenberater gechattet und mal ausgelotet was da so geht.

Xiaomi Mi5 Cyanogenmod 13

mi5I got one of this very nice mobiles. Snapdragon 820, 3GB RAM, 32GB Storage and all of this with a tiny pricetag of around 350 Euro (Shopped from Honorbuy). The only thing i don’t like is the Miui ROM…. typical chinese features and a iOS like UI, hey i bought a Android!

So the “Level Zen” Developers 😉 from XDA came together and created the Device Tree for it – There is no kernel source released so far, so they have to use the prebuild Xiaomi kernel.

 

 

Disclamer: I only show you how to use that device tree to build a fully working ROM! If you want to donate, you directly should do it to the developers of the device tree! My programming skills are way to low to contribute code :/

If you trust me, you can download my daily, weekly or whatever builds (Depends on how often the device tree and / or Cyanogenmod gets updates) directly from > here < and install it via TWRP.

In case somebody wants to build Cyanogenmod 13 for it, keep reading! But before get a fast and large  (!) cloud instance or bare metal server! It takes ages to compile when you don’t have a powerful host! I can recommend Vultr for it. I won’t cover the Ubuntu installation here, you should already know that.

  1. Do a openssh only installation of Ubuntu 16.04
  2. Login with your created user and let’s begin!

PrivacyIDEA – 2nd Factor made easy!

privacyIDEA1Did you ever searched for a good, secure, not complex, customizable and cheap 2nd factor implementation?

Stop searching!

 

PrivacyIDEA is one of the candidates i searched for a long long time… i already dealt with RSA, Kobil, Stonesoft, GoogleAuth (own build solution) and much more. I can now say, this is the most perfect solution for all your 2nd factor authentication needs. The most important part is, its OpenSource and everybody can check if there is some bug or backdoor and (!) its perfectly customizable!

It has all the plugins for Apps that you already love to use and already use in your daily work. FreeRadius, PAM, Nginx, Apache2, OpenVPN, Typo3 and much more!

It can be used with a lot of authentication mechanism, TOTP (Software or Hardware based), HOTP (Software or Hardware based), Email, Yubikey, and much much more! The interesting part is, you can also use your existing LDAP server (Microsoft, OpenLDAP and simliar) or local flat file (Linux Passwd) to map users to your 2nd factor tokens.

I used it with TOTP Software or Feitian Token in a MySQL Master-Master Active/Active setup with FreeRadius to authenticate users (Very large userbase!) for VPN on our Cisco ASA. It works as expected and so far without a single problem.

Give it a try if you ever searched for a cheap (Get commercial support if you use it in your company!), OpenSource, flexible and easy to use 2nd factor solution, you will not be disappointed.

PS: No, this is not a sponsored or paid article! I’m really convinced of this software!

Be careful: XCodeGhost Malware

As the title says, be careful where you download Apple Patches or, this case, XCode. There is a interesting article about a modified XCode floating around in china: XCodeGhost

Our downloads here should be free of “injections” from 3rd party. But you’ll never know, so please check the signature of your downloads every time you download it from somewhere else then Apple.

DHCP-Snooping and Baramundi PXE

bug

Hey folks just a short notice for everyone who uses this combination on Procurve (Maybe this also applies to Cisco and / or Comware) switches. If you enable and configure DHCP-Snooping with trusted ports and authorized servers don’t forget to also authorize the Baramundi PXE Server…

I have no idea why this thing acts like a DHCP server (I’m not really a windows guy 😉 ) but after authorizing it as “DHCP Server” in the snooping, the PXE feature works again on all clients.

Back in da hood!

IcelandShort notice that im back home and things will go on normal now!
Will migrate the beta OS X links soon to the site header.

Btw. Iceland is one of the most interesting and definitely beautiful country i’ve ever seen! Going back to Iceland and Greeland soon 🙂
