So I can’t remember what year, but I have been modifying my phones since 2010. That might actually be the year, as I started with the Droid X, which was released 2010.
I understand people don’t do it, just because, and I respect that. For me though, it opened up a whole new world.
Rooting (Android), Jailbreaking (Apple), running multiple operating systems to my computer, building two computers, learning how to code (I still suck at it), and just learning everything possible. OH, I run custom software on my DSLR (Magic Lantern). No electronic is safe from me, even a 1K camera. Circa 2012? When my cousin got married, I only had my camera for 2 weeks, and learned how to use it.
If you wanna get technical, I actually build and kept up with a website when I was like 13 years old, for a few years, until GeoCities shut down. So why didn’t I go to school for this?
Money, plain and simple. But yeah, since I was about 13 years old, I have been involved with computers and tech.
The problem is: my attention shifts way too much, so when I get frustrated with something, I drop it for awhile. Oh, I have a Hackintosh, triple boot system too. Compiled ROMs for Android too.
I know I’m all over but I felt this wave of accomplishment. I’ve been doing so much, that I discredit myself for. So when I see this in my “memories” every year, i can feel this. Oh (LOL), I did mess with some Pen Testing before, but I didn’t understand it. JackTheRipper, Metaploit, etc etc.I “attacked” myself, for the record! Never was successful because those damn Rainbow Tables.
If anybody takes this as “Dominic is super closet hacking”, you are funny. You’re next…I mean, errm. Seriously though, I don’t understand enough to hack. I wanna get some certs in cyber security, but I can’t afford the classes, and self learning that stuff is hard.
Anyways, I’m proud of myself. Good job to 13 year old me, for started the ball rolling.
