Every time I dial special network commands I always prompted with error: “Connection problem or invalid MMI code”. The number that I was trying to dial is "*199#". It could be due to any recently installed app that which is causing this error in my phone or maybe I am using custom ROM. This problem is very frustrating until I figured out that the work around is very easy.

 One way of solving this problem

One way of solving  “Connection problem or invalid MMI code” is to save the special number  to your contacts and a comma ',' at the end. Try calling the special number again, it should be good to go!  Enjoy! 🙂


Unable to execute dex: method ID not in [0, 0xffff]: 65536

 Unable to execute dex: method ID not in [0, 0xffff]: 65536

I encountered this problem when I updated Google play services in my Eclipse project. This error is due to too many methods included in the Google play services library.  You can safely take out those methods if you don't need them to not exceed the limit. This problem is much easier to work around in Android studio, but if moving to another IDE is not an option, you can try this workaround to reduce the method count of your project.

Removing unneeded Google services API

Google play services library includes the API of their  services like maps, plus, wear, games and etc.  In my case I only need Google ads API so I can safely remove them.

  1. Go to <some-path>google-play-services_lib\libs.
  2.  Open google-play-services.jar with any archiver like 7zip.
  3. Once you are inside the jar file navigate to \com\google\android\gms\ and delete services you don't need.  Enjoy!

Rooting MyPhone MY21

Learning how to root my MyPhone My21 is the very first thing I did after buying this phone. The main reason I want to root this phone is to remove the SMS limit restriction.


There’s only one tool you will need to unlock strict access on your Myphone My21 and that is by using RootGenius rooting software. Follow the steps below to root your myphone my21.

1. Enable USB debugging( navigate to settings --> developer options --> USB debugging)

2. Download and open RootGenuis to your computer, connect your phone and click root. Wait for few minutes and  enjoy!

Pollfish – Better Way To Make Money From Apps


About Pollfish

Pollfish is a survey platform that allows easy distribution and targeting of surveys through existing mobile apps. The distribution allows survey creators to target the elusive mobile user via direct targeting options in terms of location, telecommunications carrier, app, mobile platform device used etc.

Pollfish builds its distribution through partnerships with mobile app developers who embed Pollfish SDK into their apps. Clients pay per completed survey and revenue is shared with the developers. Developers can increase their revenue as each completed survey is worth 10-20 more times than an ad click! Integration of the SDK is easy, fast and does not reserve any extra space on the developer’s app as its displayed as an overlay.

Experience With Pollfish

I tried Pollfish because  they are paying sweet $0.3(minimum) per completed survey and  the one line of code required by Pollfish to run the survey in your app. I integrated their SDK in my SMS app and after few days of testing I've noticed that surveys are only available in a specific random time each day so you cannot make this as your primary source of income but good thing about their SDK is they have survey listeners if survey is not available, survey is opened and if the survey is completed by the user. I created my own waterfall of monetization strategy  by using several ad networks. I used some of the survey listeners to make the waterfall possible. When survey is not available I show ads from Airpush --> Admob --> MobileCore. When survey is completed I reward the user by removing the annoying ads in the app.. 🙂

After a month of testing I accumulated $3239 from completed surveys from my app.. 🙂
