Convert AVCHD to MP4

I often have run into the problem that Linux can directly read the MTS files, but Windows and Mac can only read them within the original file structure. There may be a good reason for that, but I don’t see it.

HTC Backup sucks

I’ve had to reset two phones recently: the Samsung Galaxy S2 so I could repartition it, and the HTC One because the Mail app had stopped working (and nothing else seemed to work).

Upgrading old Android devices to Cyanogenmod – marvelous!

I recently upgraded my Samsung Galaxy Tab (the original one) from the Overcome Experience ROM to Cyanogenmod 10. I liked the Overcome Experience – but the tablet was slow as molasses. That may be due to app creep, but I thought I’d give the “Project Butter” experience from Android Jelly Bean a try. I went with stock Cyanogenmod 10, rather than derivatives, because of the simplicity of doing so. And: it works like a *charm*.
