How to mute ringer on iPhone

February 22, 2016

Finally Apple started to support their own keyboard the way it suits me, meaning pressing “enter” sends an imessaage/sms. Took them several years.

Anyway, when I was playing with the keyboard I found out when I press “mute”, it mutes the phone completely without pressing the side (mute) switch, but when I tried to do that from the phone, took me about forever to find a way. So below is my way.

I assigned “mute” to my assistive touch (which is under settings/general/accessibility/assistive touch/custom top level menu) and assigned “assistive touch” to my “accessibility shortcut” (which is under settings/geneal/accessbility at the very bottom).

Right now when I press my home button three times, brings “assistive touch” menu and once pressed I’m getting software button which mutes or unmutes my ringer/volume. Pressing the home button three times again, allows me to remove the “assistive touch” software button, so it doesn’t bother me.

Why do I do it that way? Variety of reasons from a broken side mute button to my case, which literally is the case… it is outter box heavy duty, and every time i need to mute the phone have to dig and open the side with my nails or a key, which is a pain and the case becomes loose after a while doing that.

So I hope you like my solution and use it from time to time. I didn’t find anything clear on google, so I wrote it down in order to help to someone like me.

Thank you.

Creating a new Admin on Mac Os X

June 29, 2010

Here’s how to reset your OS X password without an OS X CD.
the Working solution for me was to create a new admin
you can create new admin like this by deleting a specific file.

You need to enter terminal and create a new admin account:

1. Reboot
2. Hold apple key + s key down after you hear the chime. (command + s on newer Macs)
3. When you get text prompt enter in these terminal commands to create a brand new admin account (hitting return after each line):

mount -uw /
rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
shutdown -h now

4. After rebooting you should have a brand new admin account. When you login as the new admin you can simply delete the old one and your good to go again!

Apple stores wont reset it for you. Computer shops may charge you $50 to $200 trying to reinstall the Mac and failing at end.
