#N9Hacks: Post to Facebook and Twitter from StatusBar

| June 16, 2012 | 32 Replies

MAG is at it again. In the latest addition to his hacked Status Bar, he has brought us the ability to update Facebook and Twitter, similar to what we saw with iOS6 early on in the week.

Quick status updates is a status menu plugin that allows you to post Facebook and Twitter status updates from the status menu (not many statuses there )

To install this, you will need to be running in Open Mode or at least have Inception installed on your device. The second requirement is that you have installed the Status Bar “unlock” hack.

Facebook lets you add links in separate fields to the status itself, while Twitter is simply the update. It’s not very feature packed, but it is really simple to use, and builds upon the simplicity of the N9.

    • James

      WTF… Are you schizophrenic or something? ;-P
      One minute you’re all hate & the next you’re in love.

      • benjimola

        Lol. Honestly I don’t hate anyone but the way the fan bois behaves makes me join them cause I can’t beat them. Anyway am mocking the n9 fans because its hacks like this that makes then buy the phone and when ask what’s special about the phone they will brag how the almost brick the phone just cause they want hack like this.

        • James

          Why listen to braggers, enjoy what you use & don’t join in on the infantile posts.
          Nine times out of ten if you actually do you homework, hacks like these aren’t an issue.
          Only folks who aren’t clued-up & just want to brag that they’re l337 h4x0rs have issues.

    Hi Michael, I have problem regarding installing the theme you posted.

    I’ve read steps here http://leimu.drupalgardens.com/content/themechanger

    “Create your own theme dir
    Themes reside in this path on your device: /usr/share/themes
    Your theme will be new directory in that path, let’s say it “mythemedir” in this example
    you’ll create following dirs:

    I cannot create folder in /usr/share/themes/
    I have developer mode on. I dont know what to do now.
    How can I fix it?


    • Michael Faro-Tusino

      That is to create your own theme. To install one, simply download theme changer app, and the theme .deb file. Install theme, then use changer app to enable new theme :)

      • weirdfisher

        I was so dumb

  • James

    Man this guy is a freak/legend.

  • flopjoke

    F-ing A! Man, this is brilliant! Thanks for this! Still wondering why the status bar was locked in the first place.. It’s kind of the main “hub” of the phone from most apps.

    Oh, I kinda missed the hack for the power save mode, bluetooth, flash, etc. in status bar.. where did you get that from?

    • flopjoke

      nevermind.. got it! :D

      • nabkawe

        so where from? :D

  • NokiaFan

    Does anybody know if i should still expect pr1.3 update for n9 after Nokia announcement two days ago ? thankx

    • Michael Faro-Tusino

      TMO has a post from the dev of CuteTube saying regarding an email they sent him saying there is a serious bug in his app on the newest N9 fw, posted yesterday


    • James

      They announced PR1.3 two days ago???
      I know it was rumoured to be coming about now.
      But I was hoping they’d take their sweet time.

      I wouldn’t care if it didn’t come till October.
      So long as there was a decent count of features & all the nastiest bugs were fixed.
      But I guess that’s not an option any more… :(

      • James

        Saw the thread, thanks…
        I hope they’re allowed to take more time to get fully solid.
        It’s very hard to make speedy progress with such a skeleton crew.

      • NokiaFan

        No no no. What i meant is if we should still expect pr1.3 update after Nokia financial announcements 2 days ago. They are cutting back on everything (expect wp). So who know what has happen to tiny MeeGo department at nokia. :(

        • James

          That thread suggests it’s still coming, we’ve had plenty of other hints.
          It well advanced so I doubt they’d pull the plug on it entirely.
          It’ll probably be rushed out ASAP now, whether it’s properly polished or not.

        Yup. It’s weird shit nowadays.
        Have to kill it with fire…

        • incognito

          We should hire Elop, I hear that he’s good with a torch…

          • James

            LOL incognito’s in epic troll mode lately, at least it’s creative ;-P

            • noki

              can we censure incognito to be unhappy about the soon to be dead Nokia? And the man that brought this into the company that pretty much invented the business? that was number 1 wen he entered, with increasing numbers of devices sold, that have good profits?

              can we?

              • James

                Hey I’ve no problem with him venting…
                I was only joking, he can vent all he wants.
                I’m quite the fan of his venting, & usually agree with much of it.

            • incognito

              Nah, more of a – huge amount of work on the plate lately, hence the sane solution: procrastinate. Sadly, I’m most creative when procrastinating… Scumbag brain, I say…
