As promised earlier in my previous tute where I have shown how to upgrade to Gingerbread 2.3.5 from Froyo 2.2.1, this video is all about going back to stock. This video shows the steps to take the Samsung SGH I997 Infuse 4G back to Stock on Android Froyo 2.2.1 using (I997UCKD5 Stock Rom) from Gingerbread 2.3.5 (I997UCKI4). Remember the Stock rom is pre-rooted and you also get back the 3e Recovery mode.

Construction sector - Exit GMR and add Unitech, Lanco, JP Assco

GMR has been doing very badly in the past 6 months and at this point in time I feel it makes most sense to exit this counter and head for greener pastures. If I would like to reinvest in the same industry I feel Unitech, Lanco & JP Assoc seems like the best options respectively. As per the below diagram the we can see that Unitech is currently trading at about a Rupee less than GMR but at the same time has made 55 times more profit that the later.

My Nikon D3100 DSLR - Quick review

I was happily using my Fujifilm Finepix S5800 for quite sometime now. Of-late I wanted to upgrade to an entry level DSLR. After some research I ended up buying the D3100. Well for starters I definitely do not regret this decision. The camera is very well built and comes with a loads of features. One great feature which I loved but very rarely use is the "GUIDE MODE". Got the cam on 3rd Feb 2011. Just added a Marumi 52 mount UV filter till now. Future upgrade Nikkor 70-300mm AFS VR lens. Here are some pics of the new camera. One thing which I felt was that unlike my Fuji the LCD monitor of the Nikon is exposed to elements. I don't understand why Nikon would do such a thing when the monitor is fixed. I got a el cheapo 50 bucks hard lcd cover over stick on LCD cover setup for the camera. Seems to work fine.

Here's a few sample shots taken with the Nikon D3100:

Airtel Broadband's "Speed on Demand" service

It's been there for a long time. I happened to use this service last night and I must say it's a very convenient way to get extra speed instantaneously when you need it.
And now with new price structure it's extremely cost effective.

All you need to do is just go to
Select your City and select the plan you need as shown in the table above and click on upgrade.

Enjoy the goodness of upto 2Mbps speeds.

When you're need for extra speed is over just click on "Deactivate". That's it.
