Ngbuzz / Ngbuzz Forum Switch to HTTPS for better security.
« on: September 04, 2017, 07:05 PM »
SSL ( Secure socket Layer ), TLS, HTTPS and other fancy terminologies in web security are fast gaining popularity in recent time due the implementation of warnings in Firefox 51 and Chrome 56 notifying users of the security status of the web page they're currently viewing.

Firefox and Chrome now indicate the status as Secure, Not Secure or Dangerous on the browser and webmasters are concerned about being on the right side of the secure web standard.

In case you're new to all this, SSL, HTTPS ensures that traffic transmitted between a client browser (Firefox, Chrome) and the origin server (ngbuzz.com) is encrypted with a certificate that confirms the identity.

Ngbuzz SSL, HTTPS

Ngbuzz.com is now Secure (HTTPS)
On 4th September, Ngbuzz Forum joined the numerous websites, Forums and blogs that have embraced the SSL connection security standard upon Google's recommendation.
Ngbuzz does not collect sensitive information like credit card details from it's users and Registration / Login to post comments and topics is optional but with the Green padlock we hope our users are more confident and safe while accessing content on this forum.

Phones / How to Remove Safe Mode from Android devices
« on: August 23, 2017, 02:11 PM »
Google's popular Mobile Operating system - Android has several modes built in to your device to help troubleshoot and resolve issues.
You might never need to use them unless your Mobile phone malfunctions. Some of these modes are:
- Download Mode: Allows Firmware to be installed on Samsung devices
- Safe mode: Disables all third-party Applications
- Recovery Mode: Gives access to wipe factory reset, apply update from Storage or install a custom recovery.
We'll only discuss Safe Mode in this post. Use the search bar below to find more information we've written about the other modes.

What is Safe Mode on Android ?
Safe mode in Android Devices is a Built in Failsafe function that prevents damage to your Android OS.
The Operating system - Android can be damaged if system critical files are modified by means of rooting.
Applications downloaded from the Google Play Store or Third-party APK Marketplaces can cause compatibility issues and hinder the smooth operation of your device.
In severe cases, it might not be possible to use your device, Enter settings or attempt to remove the incompatible Application. A lot of users simply resort to a Factory Data reset but Safe Mode should be attempted because it disables all third-party applications and allows your to uninstall via Settings >> Apps.
This is similar to what Safe Mode does on Microsoft Windows Operating systems.

Samsung Android Safe Mode
How to get Android devices into Safe Mode
If your device becomes bloated with malware, adware and pop-ups automatically launching and downloading unnecessary apps, a Firmware Flash done by a qualified tech support might be a more permanent solution but you can try the following as a temporary fix:
  • Power of your Android Device
  • Hold "Volume Down + Power Button" and release when both buttons when Boot logo is displayed
  • Your device will boot up and display "Safe Mode" on the bottom-left corner of your screen.
    If Unsuccessful, Try holding Volume up + Power or Home Button + Power.
    Some third-party apps available on the Android Store can assist to get your device in safe mode but root may be required.

Remove Safe Mode from Android Device
There are three easy ways to get your device out of safe mode.
  • While device is turned on, press and hold the Power Button and select 'RESTART"
  • While device is turned on, Swipe down to check Notifications. If your device has SAFEMODE in notification, tab to turn it off and your device will restart
  • If step 1and two above doesn't work, remove the battery while phone is on for about 3 minutes and allow it boot.

It's been ages since Nigerian super entertainment duo "Don Jazzy and D'banj" parted ways to focus on their individual record labels after some disagreement over distribution of revenue.
Their individual record labels "Mavins records by Don Jazzy" and "GOOD Music by D'banj" continue working on new projects and dropping hit tracks, one better than the other but the success of new hit songs or artists cannot be compared to the current records still being held by old ones done years ago while they were working together.

We do not intend to open old wounds but the separation is often discussed at almost every interview, fans want to know if Don Jazzy and D'banj will ever work together again. The answer to that question is NO, considering how arrogant and oversized the Ego of D'Banj has grown.
The artists who currently resides in United States of America and considers himself to be an "International Artist" has repeatedly taken shots at other Home based artists in defence to mean tweets sent on social media especially those comparing his individual success / failure now to before.

D'Banj and Don Jazzy Trending again
Not much attention was paid to the pre-release of D'banj Kingdom Come Album since the event was held in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, USA. Instead critics in their usual antics, flooded D'banj with comments that suggested Kingdom come would be another flop in his dieing career.

It's always best to filter out all the hate and concentrate on the positive because one reply could be taken out of context or reveal ones position on a subject. D'banj replied to a comment on twitter and as usual took shots at the artist he was being compared with - Don Jazzy.
Don Jazzy's Fans and the twitter mob who live for drama woke up this monday morning holiday with time on their hands to share D'banj comment enough to make it trend and would be the talk of the town for days to come.

Here is D'banj comment that everyone is talking about:
D'banj and Don Jazzy in fresh brawl

Being the Bigger man that he is, we do not expect Don Jazzy to issue any sort of response as he has since moved on to greater things. We can only pray and hope that D'banj does the same.

A good relationship with your bank is important, especially in this new cashless era where individuals and businesses rely on Internet banking, Mobile banking and Debit / Credit cards for transactions as small as purchase of airtime, bill payments, shopping and more.

Judging by the number of public complaints from customers of Nigerian banks one could say the Hate is real especially at the end of the month when transaction alert charges are deducted automatically. Charges of 100 Naira for sending money inter-bank transfers is a normal thing but nothing could prepare Nigerians for the New Charge of 50 Naira for receiving Money.

The Hate became real but before we blame the banks for this new charge lets take a moment to understand what the charge is for and why it was introduced.


What is Stamp Duty Charge
In line with the Federal Government of Nigeria non-oil sector revenue generation drive, A Letter from the Central Bank of Nigeria dated 15th January, 2016 and backed by Stamp Duty Act LFN 2004 and a court ruling on in 2013 authorized all Deposit Money Banks (DMBs) and other financial institutions to collect 50 Naira charge.

Stamp Duty charge by Central bank of Nigeria

What transactions attract 50 Naira Stamp Duty Charge
All received credit alerts to your bank account (current or savings) attracts a 50 Naira stamp duty charge.
The Receiver pays the 50 Naira, not the sender. So you don't get charged stamp duty for debit transactions.

Where does all revenue from Stamp Duty Charges go
All stamp duty charges collected by Deposit money banks and other financial institutions are paid into the Nigeria Postal Service (NIPOST) collection account with the Central Bank of Nigeria 3000047517.
What the federal government chooses to do with this new revenue stream is yet to be established.

How to Avoid or Minimize Stamp duty Charges
1. Businesses that accept payments from customers to their accounts can choose to add 50 Naira to cost of goods / services.
2. Individuals that deposit money daily or weekly can reduce stamp duty charges by accumulating cash before depositing all at once.

NOTE: Bank charges for Transfers to third party has now been reduced from 100 Naira to 50 Naira (minus VAT).

Providing ICT support services to individuals gives me the opportunity to come across some laptops you would easily categorize as ancient because of their rugged design, bulky / heavy frame and outdated connection ports (Serial port, RJ11 Port etc).
Upon close inspection and review of system specification - I'm often impressed by the processing power, RAM and battery life of some of these machines manufactured in the early 2000's. Some are even able to run the latest Microsoft operating system (Windows 10) without compatibility issues.

One of such powerful but old piece of hardware i recently had an encounter with is the Toshiba Equium L300-148.
As they get older, internal components tend to fail more often. Some easily replaceable, others - not so much.

TOSHIBA EQUIUM L300 SHUTS DOWN SUDDENLY IF POWER CORD IS PLUGGED.
Strange as this problem may seem - The solutions is even more strange.
Using the Laptop without the power cable plugged in works just fine. If the Power cable is plugged in to charge, laptop instantly trips off. All unsaved work will be lost.

An easy fix for this would be to always ensure that the power cable is plugged in before using the laptop but i'm here to offer a more permanent solution to the Old Toshiba Laptop power problem.

The steps described to help you resolve the problem can be attempted by anyone without doing any damage to your laptop but i would recommend you show it to a tech-savvy person to make more sense of it all.

SOLUTION TO TOSHIBA EQUIUM SHUTDOWN ISSUE
  • Boot your Laptop in SAFE MODE: Windows 7 users can easily reboot their computer and press F8 key repeatedly at POST screen and you will be presented with the selective startup option to boot in safe mode.
    Windows 8 or 10 users can try F8 too but if it fails to boot into safemode, hold the SHIFT key and click RESTART.
    You will be presented with the windows recovery options, select advanced and choose the option for selective startup / safe mode.
  • Open DEVICE MANAGER:When successfully in safe mode, Navigate to: Control Panel > Device manager.
    You an also easily find device manager by typing it into Start menu.
    disable processors
  • Disable all Processors:Expand the list under Processors and right-click on each processor to deactivate both on the list.
    If you can't find the DEACTIVATE option when you right click on a processor in device manager, it's most likely because you failed to Boot into Safe Mode.
  • Plug in Power Cable: Restart the computer and try to plug in the power cable while laptop is one.
    The sudden shutdown problem should have been fixed now.

Popular Nollywood actress - Oge Okoye will not forget the month of March 2017 quickly because of the sudden outrage expressed by her fans and Nigerians in general over her recent uploaded picture of two dogs on her Instagram.

If you just got a new gadget, a new outfit or a new pet, Instagram is perfect for sharing your pictures with followers and the world using hashtags but to avoid embarrassment, please make sure the item you claim to own is actually yours or that you have the owners permission to post it (Borrow-pose).

Oge Okoye made the mistake of posting pictures of two cute dogs and claimed they were hers.
A US celebrity -Kenya moore posted the same picture of the dogs about two weeks ago before Oge did.

Oge Okoye stolen instagram picture

This is not the first time a Celebrity is committing the internet crime of copyright infringement / plagiarism but for Oge Okoye, this is the first time she has been caught and the internet police didn't show mercy.

Funny as Nigerian Social Media can be, they've washed Oge Okoye with insults enough to last a lifetime. Some have gone ahead to contact Kenya moore and apologize on Oge Okoye's behalf while others have simply disowned her.

Oge Okoye trenging

Our Nigerian Celebrities might be great in front of the camera but may lack knowledge of social media does and don'ts.
The role of Social media campaign managers is once again emphasized as an essential tool to grow audience and avoid pitfalls such as this.

Oge Okoye has since deleted the stolen picture from her Instagram feed but has made no official statement or apology for her mistake. The actress will most likely stay low for a while and allow the attacks subside but no indication of calm on the matter.
On the bright side - She has not claimed that her Instagram account was hacked either. No one has considered the fact that this might just be a desperate move to grab some attention / traffic to her social media accounts.

Various security agencies in Nigeria mount checkpoints on highways and streets corners to stop and search suspicious vehicles, check unsafe acts by motorist and also for their personal reasons  ::) .

One of the best way to get pulled over by the Police is to drive a tinted glasses vehicle without a permit.
You could pay a heavy fine, vehicle may get impounded or you might just escape with a warning depending on how to handle the issue.

To avoid such embarrassments and confidently drive your Car with tinted glasses, you need a permit which is only issued to car owners with "Factory fitted Tinted Glasses".
Getting the car tinted glass permit in Nigeria is way cheaper than the cost of changing your tinted glasses to normal glasses. The form for the permit can be filled out online as shown below.

HOW TO OBTAIN A PERMIT FOR TINTED GLASS IN NIGERIA

Online Tinted Glass permit form in Nigeria
  • Visit this webpage for the Nigeria Police Force Tinted Glass Online Registration Form and fill the short form on the page to get an Application ID. Write it down.
    Your email must be active.
  • Enter the Application ID issues to you in step 1 and also enter you Email to Login and complete your personal Information and details about the Vehicle you're requested Tinted glass permit for.
  • Make a Hardcopy printout of the Final page after submitting online. Submit the printout to any Police command near you where Biometric fingerprint will be captured and the Permit Certificate will be issued.

It's unclear if any fees or charges is required for this permit to be issued. I would also recommend a state police command office where ICT facilities is available to process your application faster.

The free fall of exchange rates between the Nigerian Naira (NGN) and other currencies has prompted the Central Bank of Nigeria to take necessary actions that should boost the value of the Naira over the dollar, EURO etc.

Some of the policies includes tax deductions for companies that use local content, Ban on importation of some raw materials / products that can be locally sourced, restrictions placed on online shopping using Naira denominated cards to pay for Dollar denominated products.

Despite all efforts of the Federal government being implemented and enforced by Commercial Banks, Nigeria Customs Service and CBN - the value of the dollar against the Naira has still climbed to hit a record high of 500 Naira to 1$ in the parallel market (Black market) and 315 Naira to 1$ as official rate.

The number of people getting locked out of their Android devices after a factory reset is increasing daily.
This is mostly due to the fact that Mobile phones that run Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and 6.0 (Marshmallow) Mobile Operating Systems are now ruling the market.
Even users on lower versions like 4.4 are looking to upgrade. Sometimes going the extra mile to install a custom firmware if Official OTA Firmware Upgrade isn't available yet.

In a previous post, we documented some essential steps needed to Bypass Factory Reset Protection (FRP) on Samsung J5, J7. The post even included a step by step video guide.
Unfortunately that method of unlocking FRP we posted did not work on a Tecno W3 Android device which was also locked with FRP. So here's another Guide tested and working for Tecno W3 users. Other MTK 65xx Android users can also give this a try.

NOTE: A computer with internet connection is required to complete these steps.
Internet connection and Phone USB Cable are also required.
You MUST deactivate your Antivirus software Program temporarily to allow required software run successfully.

How to ByPass Google FRP Lock on Tecno W3 and other MTK 65xx Android devices
  • FIRST METHOD: The easiest way to Unlock FRP on some MTK devices is to skip the Wifi network request page. if that is not an option for you, let's move on to the second method.
  • SECOND METHOD:
    Download MIRACLE 2.27A.RAR and Extract to your desktop. (WINRAR is required to unzip .RAR file extensions.) Password is:  mdtuhin88
  • IMPORTANT:The software you just downloaded will be totally useless if you fail to get this step right.
    Download and Install MTK 65xx Preloader Driver
    You MUST Manually Install the MTK 65xx Preloader driver from Device manager > Add Legacy Device > Install Manually > Select i Have disk > Select Driver > Next.
    Windows 7 32bit and 64bit PC is recommended but Windows 8 and 10 can work if driver signature verification is turned off.
  • Launch Miracle Loader and select UNLOCK/FIX tab >> Check the box for "Clear Settings/FRP"and click the START Button.
    Google FRP Bypass on Tecno w3
  • Now, Turn off Mobile Phone and connect to PC USB while "Waiting for USB Port" message is displayed on Miracle Box.
  • If MTK Preloader drivers was successfully installed, the commands to Bypass FRP will be installed and status should display DONE. At this point, remove / reinsert the battery and Turn on the device. It should allow you SKIP wifi > and finish initial setup without requesting for Google Account previously used on the device.

I would appreciate it if you share successfully completed a FRP bypass and which MTK device used. Hit the reply Button bellow (Login not required).

MTN Nigeria kicked off the new year by offering its subscribers free 4 Giga bytes of Data for internet browsing, social media access, downloads and video streaming.

This bonus was given to draw some attention to MTN NG 4G/LTE services that ordinary subscribers are not aware of or interested in.

A lot of my friends have seen the free 4GB data balance on their mobile phones but cannot seem to use it after dialing required codes etc.

In this post, we will go through a short checklist that will allow any MTN subscriber enjoy their 4000 MB Free data before it expires.


  • CODE TO CHECK FREE MTN 4GB LTE BONUS DATA
    No matter the tariff plan or mobile device you use. If you dial *559*444# you'll see the message:
    Quote
    Your 4G/LTE FREE Data balance is 4096.01MB...
    MTN free 4GB data for 4G/LTE
  • Do you Have 4G/LTE Coverage in your Town or City?
    If you're not in a 4G/LTE Network coverage area, then it's a total waste of time continuing with any of the steps below because the free data only works on 4G/LTE network.
    To check if your City has coverage, visit the MTN Nigeria 4G coverage Map and enter the name of your City or State to see the Red and yellow Areas on the map.
    The usual 2G and 3G networks does not work with the 4GB Bonus
  • Is your SIM Card and Mobile device / Modem 4G/LTE compatible?
    The next step is to check if your MTN SIM Card is 4G enabled. Do this by sending a new SMS to 131. In the SMS message just type  4G and send to 131. You will receive a message about your SIM 4G/LTE ready status.

    Activate 4G/LTE on your MTN Line

    Visit an MTN Office to get a sim replacement / upgrade to a 4G/LTE enabled SIM. No need to change your Number.
    The message will also let you know if your Mobile device is 4G/LTE compatible but you can easily check that yourself from Settings > Mobile Networks > Network Mode (2G, 3G, 4G/LTE).
    If you device isn't compatible with 4G/LTE, i highly recommend a Universal 4G/LTE Wireless Modem that accepts SIM from any network and allows multiple devices to connect via Wifi.

Now that you know what's required to enjoy the free MTN 4G/LTE data bonus, Share this post with friends.

For over 1 year, the time on my Laptop has been displayed in the 24 hour format.
I live in Nigeria. We do not use the 24 hour clock for personal use and i don't know anyone who prefers that option except the military and those in marine industry.

Usually, Time and date settings can easily be changed in Control Panel of Microsoft Windows Operating systems but for some reason - Microsoft didn't add an easy button to turn on/off  24 / 12 hour clock like it's done on Android Devices. That's what i thought until i took a closer look at the settings and found the answer.

I believe this to be a frequently asked question and most PC users would be able to follow the simple steps to get it done with no skill required.

How to Switch Between 24 hours and 12 hours Clock
  • Right-Click the TIME on the Taskbar and select ADJUST DATE/TIME
  • Click >> "Change Calendar Settings"
  • Click the TIME TAB and make the following changes to switch between 24 hours time and 12 hours time.
    type: HH:mm:ss for a 24-hour clock.
    type: hh:mm:ss for a 12-hour clock.

  • Click APPLY for changes made to take effect.

See video below on how to get it done.

This is easy to do but i still prefer Microsoft adds an On / Off switch to control these settings instead of a hh / HH which may be overlooked by most users.

Lots of memorable moments were recorded in the year 2016, some good and most of them bad.
Just when we thought it was all over, 2016 claimed its last victim - Mariah Carey's Singing Career.

The singers cringe worthy performance at dlck Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve event in New York City, Time Square with just 15 minutes to the countdown to 2017 is trending on YouTube, Twitter and other social media for all the wrong reasons.



It's no news that Artists play their Music in the background and act like they're actually singing on stage - Lip-syncing is allowed and everyone does it but when your music playing in the background is only instrumentals, you've got to sing to it. Instead of singing to the instrumental playing, Mariah just walked around on stage giving excuses about not hearing, not being prepared for this song and even suggested the crowd sing it instead while her dancers continued their acrobatics behind her.

A Source later revealed that there was no time for a sound check before the performance. The performance was being broadcast LIVE to the whole nation on ABC.

In her defence, Ryan Seacrest commented immediately after her performance:  “No matter what Mariah does, the crowd loves it.”

See Video Below.

As embarrassing and funny as Mariah's performance was, I don't think it will affect her career in anyway but only serve as a reminder that Celebrities are Humans too and can make mistakes.
Preparation is Key.
