Tether iPhone for Free

If you’re anything like me, sometimes you need to tether but never enough to justify the added expense. FlashArmyKnife allows you to do just that. It’s pretty simple too. Just watch the video for a decent walk through. You’ll need this too:

Enter this to Activate Tethering (no commas):
1642, M+, C, 1452, M+, C, 1943, M+
When it says “run”, tethering is running. Press “C” to stop tethering.

Proxy ports:
HTTP: 6667
SOCKS: 6668

It’s worth mentioning this does violate TOS with your carrier, but if you’re wanting to do this kind of thing you probably already knew that.

Determine Redis Version

redis 300dpiI’ve recently been doing a little bit of work with Redis for a side project of mine. Redis is basically a caching tool; you can read more about it here. I ran into an issue and needed to know which version of Redis I installed since I just used the Debian repositories.

This is all you have to do:

If Redis is running, stop it:

/etc/init.d/redis-server stop

Then run:


The output should look something like this:

As you can see, this is Redis 2.6.3. That’s it!

Hit CTRL+C to quit, then start Redis again:

/etc/init.d/redis-server start

Pretty Simple.


You can also run:

redis-cli info

and grab the version that way.
