Glass Kernel Changelog Tidbits

Kernel Changelog Tidbits for Glass

I've always enjoyed teardowns of of the software in new products. As you can expect, I loved the detailed writeup of the secrets found in Google Glass's kernel source at . However, when that article is written, the source code of the kernel was just served without the changelog (provided by their version control system, Git). Since then, Google had released the kernel with full change information on AOSP.

If you want to dig around the logs yourself: with highlights at and . More eyes will probably uncover more secrets.

What's Really New: Glass XE7

Google Glass XE7 was released this week. This time, Google also released a changelog of all the changes. However, I'm a reader of Ron Amadeo's APK Teardown series, and that column taught me to always hunt for hidden changes in updates.

So without further ado, I present:

Glass Labs experiments: what they do

Glass Lab Experiments

Updated: July 2nd (XE7)

Ron Amadeo of Android Police did a review of these experiments:

Google Glass has a series of Labs experiments that can be enabled on engineering or userdebug builds. Using APKTool, I've removed that restriction and now they can be enabled with root access.

To start, for example, the SOUND_SEARCH lab, type in a root shell

Installing Arch on the Chromebook Pixel

This describes my basic Arch Linux installation on my Chromebook Pixel.

Note: I'm a coward, so I installed Arch to an SD card instead of wiping out the existing SSD.


  • SD card. A very minimal Arch installation with XFCE will need about 2GB, so I think 4GB is the minimum you can get by with.
  • Arch installer on a USB drive. The 2013.05.01 is broken with the recent netctl change. So either get an older or newer one.
  • Some Arch Linux familiarity.
  • Time, patience, and good eyesight.

Fuck you, Time Warner Cable

I missed a payment on my Time Warner Cable bill. Prior to this, the hostname of my laptop was "yupa" (after Master Yupa, from Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, because it's a MBA, get it, air? ok, sorry, that's fucking awful I know). Anyway, look at what my hostname is now:

jordanorelli@auto-prov[0] ~: hostname

umm, excuse me, I never changed my hostname. Anyway, let's back the fuck up and see how I even discovered this.

When I got home today, I opened my MBA and fired up Chrome. On startup, it tried to open up all the tabs that were open when I closed it. Some of these included a page. All of them were, instead, redirected to whatever hostname they were talking to, with ap_index tacked on the end. E.g., refreshing a Google page bounced me to, which is the automatic provisioning page that a Time Warner Cable tech is supposed to see when they start up the computer. My brother (who is also my roommate) opened the account and has all the i
