I’m Adam Demasi.

I founded HASHBANG Productions to build and release software for platforms such as iPhone, Android, Mac, Windows, and Web. We’ve built TypeStatus, NewTerm, MapsOpener, and many more.

I’m a maintainer of the Theos build system, the most commonly used solution for building iOS jailbreak software from a device running macOS, Linux, Windows, or even iOS itself.

Currently building Chariz, a directory and payment platform to help users find and buy great Mac and iOS software.

Samba, in its simplest form, is a program for Linux, FreeBSD, Windows (via WSL), etc. that enables you to share storage attached to a server with any other device in the network. It uses the SMB protocol, originally a proprietary protocol designed by Microsoft for sharing files between a Windows server and workstation. Nowadays, SMB is the standard protocol regardless of operating system.

iOS 9 came out almost 24 hours ago. Content blockers, a new extension feature in iOS 9 that allows for blocking of web requests, cookies, and HTML elements, are already at the top of the App Store charts with tens of thousands of downloads.

For some time I’ve been experiencing really slow folder opening in Finder and Open/Save panels. Clicking to open a folder would take anywhere from a few seconds to a minute to appear. I lived with this for some time, until I was debugging something and went to watch my syslog.

It’s been the belief of many people that an AppleInternal tool, PurpleRestore, is able to restore their device to any firmware without backed up blobs.
