Asphalt 9: tips, tricks and secrets

Asphalt 9 tips, tricks and secrets

Recently, Gameloft released Asphalt 9: Legends - a free game that allows you to race in expensive sports cars, open new racing tracks and enjoy the spirit of the competition. The new version of the game became many times better: new hyperkars and more than 70 new tracks were added.
The developers took the schedule and management of the game to a new level both in single mode and in multiplayer. Now you can race at speed through a tornado or dodge obstacles during an earthquake. In multiplayer, it's fun to play together with friends.
Below we will tell you everything about the legendary game. These tips, tricks, and secrets will help you get to the top of the leaderboard.
DownloadAsphalt 9: Legends

The most important thing is nitro

Racing games - this is a very special experience, because it is not at all like real driving. Here you need to break through the tornado and jump over the barriers with the help of various amplifiers.

However, before that you need to learn how to use nitro - the most important element in the whole game, which will undoubtedly help you to be in the lead.
The nitro button is located at the top of the screen. You can fill the nitro by collecting cylinders on the track or by performing jumps and turns using the drift buttons that are on the edges of the screen. To perform a 360 degree turn, double-tap the edge of the screen in the jump. Do this trick is not so easy. When you land, the speed will drop a little, but the perfect reversal will completely fill up the nitro.

You can use nitro at any time, until it is over. If you touch the button a second time, the speed will increase, and the third push will increase the speed to the maximum. The higher the speed, the faster nitro ends.

Shoot down opponents

You can shoot down other cars by double-clicking the drift button while the nitro is active. If you do everything at the right time, you can shoot down cars with 360-degree turns.

New management system

One of the newest and most interesting features of the game is the management of TouchDrive.
With the help of TouchDrive the machine controls itself, and the player needs to control only nitro and drift. Thus, novice players can lighten their task a little.
In addition, now you can see the signs on the track in advance at the top of the screen. With TouchDrive, you just need to activate nitro in time and use drift, so as not to fly off the track and not skip the jump.

How to Free Unlock Cars

Another significant change in the new version is the way cars are unlocked. Instead of saving money for buying a car or improving already purchased, you can use a new card system.

Cards on cars are called Blueprints , and each of the machines or each of the improvements costs a different number of such cards.
The new system has both minuses and pluses. Below, we'll show you how to get Blueprints cards much faster.
In the career mode : This is the main single mode in which you can earn the most cards. It contains different tasks and goals, for which you can receive cards.
Using Daily Events : When you reach the desired level, you can participate in daily events and receive in them cards for cars of different classes. It is best to participate in events on time each day to win more different machines.
In cooperation with other players : Join a club is a great way to find friends, and at the same time to earn more cards. When the club reaches a certain level, each participant receives additional points of reputation in each race. Points for the reputation of the whole club allow you to open rewards, thereby giving you advantages in individual races.
Sets of cards in the store : Every four hours you can get a free set of cards Blueprints. They operate for 4 hours, so they can not be saved.
Tokens : You can get rare cars and using the main currency in the game - Tokens.
Shop Legend : In the game store you can buy sets of cards that are updated every couple of hours.
The fact is that the rules for each car are individual. Some cards can be bought for game currency, and others - only for real money.

Car Improvements

You must constantly improve the weakest elements of your car. The first thing you need to improve the maximum speed and nitro is two key factors in the race.

Save gas and energy

Asphalt 9 does not have a common energy storage system, but there are separate systems for each machine. A limited amount of gasoline is available for each car.
Each car can participate in only six races, and then you will need to wait until the energy recovers, or buy gasoline for money or watch an ad.
Depending on the amount of gasoline you need to look at a different number of commercials. Also the energy for each car restores the level increase.

How to get currency for free

You probably already understood that Asphalt 9 is a classic free game, it's easy to win in which you can only pay money.
However, the currency can be received free of charge. You receive a fee for each race. To earn more money, you need to participate in career mode races with several goals.
For each goal you achieve, you get some money and open new awards. If you fulfill all three goals for the race, the income will increase three-fold. Do not forget to check and fulfill goals in the career mode.
A good way to earn - daily events. After beating the set time, you can get up to four different awards per race.

How to remove jailbreak iOS 11.3.1 Electra from iPhone or iPad

Not much time has passed since the release of jailbreak iOS 11.2 - iOS 11.3.1 Electra, but today we will tell you how to remove it from your iPhone or iPad.

At the moment jailbreak Electra has installed more than 280,000 users. If you are one of them, then for sure you are already using your favorite and new jailbreak tweaks that come out every week.
The new tool is pretty stable, but sometimes there are problems with it. The most common cause is the installation of unsupported tweaks.

Fortunately, we already have an easy way to remove jailbreak and all installed tweaks from your device without updating the software. This is done using the tool SemiRestore11 / Rollectra, which you can download in Cydia. The tool is similar to the application Cydia Eraser, once released by the developer Saurik, but it is much faster and more reliable.
The tool supports only the device with jailbreak Electra1131 for iOS 11.3 - iOS 11.4 Beta 3. Below we will explain in detail how to remove jailbreak from your iPhone or iPad.
Note that SemiRestore11 will remove all data, documents, tweaks and applications from your device, so we recommend that you keep a copy of them.

How to remove jailbreak Electra1131

Step 1: Open the Cydia applications, find and install the  TwiRestore 11 / Rollectra tweak . Do not add a new repository, just enter the name of the tool in the search.

Step 2: When the tweak is established, its icon will appear on your home screen. Open the SemiRestore application.
Step 3: Click the Unjailbreak button to start the process of removing the jailbreak from your device. It usually takes a few minutes. Before using the device, you can not use the device.

After the process is completed, the device will reboot. By this time, all your personal data, documents and tweaks will be deleted.
The process is very simple and straightforward, and it is very useful if you do not want to update the software. An alternative is to put the device into recovery mode, but this method will update the device to the latest available version of iOS.

The iPad Pro 2018 will have rounded corners of the display

The iPad Pro 2018 will have rounded corners of the display

The latest beta version of iOS 12 found information that the new iPad Pro will have rounded corners of the display. This makes sense, because the tablet should have a design similar to the design of the iPhone X with rounded corners.
In iOS 12 beta 5, an image of the interface elements with rounded corners was found. The name of the device model on the image is 2018 iPad Pro (J3XX).
For 6.1-inch LCD iPhone was found the same image, and hence the smartphone will have rounded corners.
The rounded display only looks beautiful, it will not lead to any significant changes. Nevertheless, this display design will look great with the design of iOS 12. We also have confirmation that this year the company will release iPhone X Plus.
At the moment we have official information that the new line of the iPad Pro will have thin frames, there will not be a Home button with a Touch ID, or a headphone jack. Apple will add Face ID support to the tablets, as well as other improvements.

How to check if SIP is enabled on a Mac

How to check if SIP is enabled on a Mac

System integrity protection (Integrity Protection (SIP)) protects certain important Mac OS system folders from modifications, extractions and deletions on the Mac, even if you have "root" access. The SIP system is enabled by default in all modern versions of Mac OS, but periodically it still does not hurt to check the status of SIP on your Mac.
There are two ways to check whether the system is active - through the command line and using the System Information tool.
Below we describe both ways to check the status of SIP on a Mac.

How to check the status  of System Integrity Protection  via Terminal

1. Start the Terminal program from the utility folder.
2. Type the following command and press return (enter):
csrutil status
3. You will see one of the following messages:
  • If the SIP system is active - System Integrity Protection status: enabled.
  • If the SIP system is disabled - System Integrity Protection status: disabled.

If the SIP system is active, then you do not need to do anything. If it is disabled, it should be turned on.

How to check the System Integrity Protection ( SIP) status in System Information

  1. Open the folder with the utilities.
  2. Run the System Information.
  3. Select Software from the list on the left.
  4. Locate the System Integrity Protection item in the window, and the status of the system activity will be displayed next to it.

What folders are protected by  the integrity protection system  ?

System Integrity Protection provides security for the following system folders:
/ System
/ sbin
/ bin
/ usr (except / usr / local)
/ Applications (standard programs only)
Almost all folders protected by the SIP system are hidden from the user by default, but they can be accessed.
These folders are protected from editing, deleting, moving, etc. even with root access. Sometimes the SIP system is called "rootless". You can change the files of these folders only by disconnecting the system, which requires an administrator password and "boot" access.
With SIP, you can not accidentally or intentionally delete important system files on Mac OS. Do not turn off the system without good reason. In which case, it will need to be activated immediately.
Recall that the SIP system is active by default in all modern versions of Mac OS. Among them: macOS Mojave, macOS High Sierra, MacOS Sierra and Mac OS X El Capitan. Most likely, this will not change in the future versions of the system. In older versions, the system is not supported at all, i.e. and its status can not be verified.

How to view EXIF ​​data in the new Finder gallery in macOS Mojave

How to view EXIF ​​data in the new Finder gallery in macOS Mojave

What is EXIF data ?

EXIF data is the key information about images. They are also called metadata.
Metadata is created by the device on which the image was taken. Image editors (like Photoshop) can supplement metadata with new details, like the version number and the changes applied.
Some programs allow you to edit EXIF data manually.
Metadata includes: image resolution, file name, dimensions, camera model, location, shutter speed, ISO, date and time, copyright information, description, preview, etc.

Metadata on iPhone iPad and Mac

Metadata can be created and viewed in both iOS and macOS.
iOS can interpret some metadata (for example, show the location on the map in Photos), but to view the EXIF data you need a third-party application.
In the macOS Mojave, this data can now be viewed in the Finder. Below we will describe how this is done.

How to view metadata on a Mac

1) Click on the Finder icon in the dock to open the program.
2) Open the desired folder with the files .
3) Click on the icon on the right in the small window on the top of the Finder.

The display in the form of a gallery will divide the Finder window into two parts.

You will see small thumbnails of the images from the bottom, and the rest of the space will be occupied by the selected file.

4) On the View menu, click Show preview .
5)  Select a photo, and its metadata will appear in the column to the right.

In this way, you can easily and quickly view the EXIF data without even opening the file in another program.

Quick Actions Tools

Another feature of macOS Mojave "Quick Actions" allows you to edit images in the same window. The toolbar is under metadata.
Depending on the type of the selected file, you can perform various actions. For example, PDF files can be password protected, etc. The video can be quickly cropped or rotated.

Photos can be rotated and edited using the Markup tools. You can even work with multiple files at the same time.
macOS Mojave contains other changes to the Finder, as well as improvements to the system as a whole. For example, now the files on the desktop are conveniently sorted automatically.
