Build the Ultimate HTPC

The following HTPC will be ultra-fast, sleek and aesthetically pleasing, and silent. All components will integrate seamlessly. After doing a tremendous amount of research and quite a bit of trial and error, this is what I have come up with.

Tips: Install the power supply fan side up. The power supply will be 1 SATA power plug short. You need to order a Molex to SATA adapter.

  • SilverStone Aluminum/Steel Micro ATX Media Center/HTPC Case ML03B (Black)

  • SiliconDust HDHomeRun DUAL High Definition Digital TV Tuner HDHR3-US (Black)

  • Silverstone ST45SF 450 watts SFX form factor power supply

  • Ortek Windows 7 Vista XP Media Center MCE PC Remote Control

  • Intel Core i5-3570K Quad-Core BX80637I53570K

  • Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB Kit (8GBx2) DDR3 1600

  • Seagate Barracuda 3 TB HDD SATA 6 Gb/s NCQ 64MB Cache

  • Western Digital WD Scorpio Black 750 GB 2.5" hard drive

  • Asus Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-Ray Drive (BC-12B1ST)

  • Windows 7 Professional SP1 64bit (OEM)

  • ASRock LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard Z77M

My HTPC is also used to host a variety of services. If you're using yours purely as an HTPC, you would be fine with 4-8GB of RAM, an I3, and Windows 7 Home. Best home theater pc build. HTPC build. DIY HTPC build. Home theater. Windows Media center computer. Media Server build tutorial.

Droid 4 Stuck In Fastboot Mode - Fix

DOWNLOAD: Droid 4 stuck fastboot fix (flash with RSD-Lite)

I had a problem with my Droid 4 today. I upgraded to Jelly Bean, and discovered I had lost root, despite using OTA Rootkeeper. I couldn't find a JB root tool, so I tried to SBF back to ICS and re-root there. Unfortunately you are not allowed to SBF backwards, so the flash failed.

Nothing was corrupt, the Jelly Bean install still worked fine. However since the flash had officially failed the phone now started in Fastboot mode every time...with a message saying that the flash had failed. To boot normally I had to hold power and volume keys and select normal boot, obviously very annoying.

As there is no Jelly Bean SBF yet, I could not flash that. So I developed a little RSD-Lite package to "spoof" a successful flash. If your Droid 4 is stuck in Fastboot mode, download the file above and flash it with RSD-Lite to get the phone back to normal boot mode. This will work whether you're on ICS or JB.

  • Flash with Heimdall (download here). If you're coming from a ROM other than stock GB, you may need to flash the bootloaders and modem file in Heimdall as well. You can get those files here. (Flashing both the ROM and modem/bootloader package should restore your device from just about any state)

  • When flash is complete, Tab will reboot into recovery. You need to wipe data/cache, and reboot.

Screenshots: (the battery percentage at the top was pulled from the build due to bugs, so the battery is still the stock Gingerbread battery icon)
