This video is for users that have purchased Windows from the 123myIT.com Store or Microsoft and will show you how to open and install Windows 7, 8, 8.1 Themes. These themes are FREE to download and install.
Tis the season to be jolly! And since everyone has probably started decorating their home with some Christmas decorations, why not do the same with your Windows computer?
I have been using these Windows themes for about a year now and they are pretty awesome, and now I have just downloaded and I am running the Christmas theme. Its pretty cool it will refresh your back ground every now and then with a new high definition back ground and when you get sick of it you can simple go and download a new one.
For a while I was using the Antarctic theme, see the picture below.
I have to say it defiantly brightens up your Desktop back ground and lets face it we probably look at our devices allot during the day so why not brighten it up somewhat? Plus they are all FREE to download and use if you have the full version of Windows 7, 8, 8.1.
For Cat and Animal lovers their is a whole swag of different animal themes that you can add. Check out the Cats Everywhere theme picture below.
If you want to download the themes you can find the link under the 123myIT.com Downloads page here.
Of if you want the direct link you can get it here.

This video will show you how to create a bootable Windows 7 8 USB on a Mac.
You can use the bootcamp assistant to create a bootable Windows 7 8 USB on a Mac. However the option may not be highlighted in your bootcamp assistant.
To make the option appear you can try the following steps.
Step 1. Click on Go then Utilities. Find the Bootcamp assistant, right click on it and go to Show package contents and then go into the contents folder.
Step 2.Copy the info.plist file to the desktop and make a backup copy of it and open it.
Step 3. Find the line which says PreUSBbootsupportmodels and remove the Pre from the line. Try running the bootcamp assistant again and this time you should have the Create a Windows 7 or later install disc option.
Step 4 Copy the info.plist back to the contents directory. And start the bootcamp assistant again and see if the Create Bootable USB Drive for Windows installation comes up. If not try this next step.
Step 5 Change the USBbootsupportedmodels in the info.plist file.
You can find the model on the Mac that you are using by going into the Apple menu then click on About This Mac and then click on More info. Next click on System report and under Hardware Overview look up Model Identifier.
In the example in the video my MacBook model was MacBook7,1.
In the info.plist file I had to change the USB supported models to my MacBook model so that I could create a Windows USB on a Mac.
Hope this works guys. Feel free to leave some feedback.

A step by step guide on how to Jailbreak your iPhone 3G using Windows 7 and Redsn0w. If you you dont have any luck doing the jailbreak you can always restore your iPhone from iTunes. Download Redsn0w from our downloads page. https://www.123myit.com/downloads/
So I made this video to help others Jailbreak their iPhones. Because about one year ago I tried to jailbreak my iPhone unsuccessfully.
What is this jailbreak I speak of? Well if you think of the term jailbreak you imagine a prisoner escaping from jail. Well that is essentially what you are doing with your iPhone you are breaking it out of jail and relaxing all the restrictions that Apple has placed on the iPhone. If you want to learn more about what is the difference between jailbreak and unlock you can read my article on it here. Jail breaking allows you to install Apps and configure your iPhone that would otherwise be locked down by Apple’s default settings. A good example of a great Apo that will install on a jail broken iPhone is Veency and you can see my video here.
Before attempting any funny business with your iPhone or iOS device, you should always do a backup in iTunes and you can find the video on how to here. Once you have backed up your iPhone and you are happy that all your data is safe you are ready to Jailbreak it.
Step 1. Go into your setting menu, general and turn off Auto-lock and Passcode Lock. Make sure both these settings are off as they may interfere with the jailbreak. Step 2. Scroll up and go into About, and make a note of the firmware version. Step 3. Download redsn0w from our downloads section here. There is a Windows and Mac version that you can download. Step 4. Install redsn0w and run the application. Plug in your iPhone to the USB port and make sure the driver for the iPhone installs correctly. If it doesn’t try restarting your PC or Mac with your iPhone plugged into the USB port. This will normally resolve driver issues, because the driver detects the iPhone and installs the driver on start up. Step 5. Make sure you iPhone is turned off and still plugged in. Step 6. Ok you need to now put your iPhone in DFU mode. To do this you need to Hold down the power button for 3 seconds. Without releasing the Power button, also hold down the Home (bottom center)button for 10 seconds. Without releasing the Home button, release the Power button, BUT KEEP holding the Home button for 15 seconds. Step 7. In the redsn0w program it should say waiting for reboot. And on your iPhone will say downloading jailbreak data. Once redsn0w says done you can actually disconnect the USB cable from your iPhone and it will continue to install. Step 8. The iPhone should reboot and once it does this you can login and scroll across to your Apps and you should see a brown Cydia App. If you have this then you have been successful in jail breaking your iPhone.
One last thing I should mention, the jailbreak process does not always go smoothly. The most annoying error is USB communication error. You can see my video on how to fix this error here.
