Nashville Fire Radio: Explosive device in RV detonated. Bomb Squad on the way. β€œHeavy building damage”

Im listening to the Nashville Fire radio.

Crazy shit.

https://m.broadcastify.com/listen/feed/22471

Edit2: Various things that I have heard:

There are victims in one / some of the buildings.

20-30 people evacuated from a building, a few had minor injuries.

It was a RV that exploded, causing significant damage.

A building collapsed. (partial destruction, small old building)

There was / is ammunition in the RV that exploded that is β€œburning off”

Medical triage setup.

FBI involved

Edit3: channel 2 has live coverage

Taken from a poster below, video of damage. Potentially disturbing:

LPT: Amazon will be enabling a feature called sidewalk that will share your Wi-Fi and bandwidth with anyone with an Amazon device automatically. Stripping away your privacy and security of your home network!

This is an opt out system meaning it will be enabled by default. Not only does this pose a major security risk it also strips away privacy and uses up your bandwidth. Having a mesh network connecting to tons of IOT devices and allowing remote entry even when disconnected from WiFi is an absolutely terrible security practice and Amazon needs to be called out now!

In addition to this, you may have seen this post earlier. This is because the moderators of this subreddit are suposedly removing posts that speak about asmazon sidewalk negatively, with no explanation given.

How to opt out:

  1. Open Alexa App.
  2. Go to settings
  3. Account Settings
  4. Amazon Sidewalk
  5. Turn it off

Edit: As far as i know, this is only in the US, so no need to worry if you are in other countries.

YSK that if your phone/device that is used often and charged while using it and doesn't seem to charge at all, or the charger falls out, it probably isn't broken/going bad/in need of repair or replacement

Why YSK: If you carry your device on you all the time, frequently put it in your pocket or charge it often and worry the port fell in because it barely charges or the cord falls out, take 5 minutes with a fine needle like a safety pin or sewing needle, a flashlight and a flat blade like an x-acto knife and clean out the dust and lint accumulating inside before filing a warranty claim or buying a replacement device.

I've found on several of my devices (current and past phones, particularly with USB-C) that I had a large amount of dust, pocket lint and dirt compacted in the port that prevented my charge cord from being able to fully seat or fast charge. So using a flashlight to see, I scrape the bottom and inside walls of the port with a sewing needle and an x-acto knife, and have removed a year and a half's worth of whatever it has picked up removed and get them to hold the charge cord and restore its ability to fast charge.

[Free Release] NeonBoard, reborn - a new lightweight theming engine for iOS 7 - 14! (+ a bit of info regarding the "NeonBoard is unsafe and will mess up your device" rant on the Discord from a while ago)

EDIT 2: 1.0.2 fixes crashing bug and oversized UI bug, thus reenabling UI theming.

EDIT: 1.0.1 up on my repo. Changelog:

  • fixed bug with Folded causing safe mode
  • fixed bug with iOS 12 & 11 being safe moded
  • fixed bug with settings app crashing when adding overrides
  • fixed bug with UI themes being too large.... and completely disabled UI themes because they crash too much :( (i will be fixing the bug with UI theming and re-enabling it soon)
  • fixed bug with iPhone X and later users not being able to hide dock background

This took.... very long.

But it's finally here.


Hey /r/jailbreak, I'm very proud to say that NeonBoard, the theming engine I have been teasing for years, is finally here. It took almost a year of development to get everything working, and I'm very happy with what I got in the end.


Who? What? Where?

So, what is NeonBoard? Some of you might have heard of NeonBoard Lite a while ago when I released it - well, this is the full version of the tweak! Apart from the very basic feature - icon theming - this version includes:

  • Icon masks (Read below for info about icon masks on iOS 14. They work, but with a catch....)

  • Icon effects (shadows, overlays and underlays)

  • UI theming (CC icons, app UI, StatusBar, etc.)

  • Settings icons (with some advanced features!)

  • SpringBoard effects (icon labels, page dots, folders, badges, etc.)

  • Fonts

  • ....and much more!


Ok, aight. But why?

Yeah, why, you may ask? Why yet another theming engine? Well, here's why:

  • Lightweight: NeonBoard is built with performance and battery life in mind - a lot of things are done in a way different from how other theming engines do it, and overall it seems more efficient (and we've tested on different devices, jailbreaks and versions).

  • Supports a large span of iOS versions: as far as I know, most SnowBoard extensions are iOS 9+ (or even iOS 11+); Anemone 3 doesn't suppport older iOS versions either. NeonBoard does, for all of its features.

  • Attention to detail: for example, the clock icon is not only themed for the live icon, but also for the one you see in app switcher, screen time, folder icons, etc. NeonBoard renders the clock arrows and caches this icon, unlike other theming engines, that just use the background circle image as the icon. You can also mask Settings icons with NeonBoard, for example. There are some small UI customization options in the settings, like hiding icon labels, hiding dock backgr
