Native TomTom for Windows & Mac!

Many of you are surely familiar with the image above, but if you inspect the image carefully you will notice something 'weird'...

Yep! No tricks.
This image is 960x544 (without the footer with the buttons). How did that happen?! :)
Well this "TomTom" is running natively under windows. I know, there's no such a thing.
And NO, it's not windows emulating something that is running tomtom! Thrilled?
Many people think that the application TomTomHOME connects to the device and "somehow" runs the software in there...
TTHome uses a DLL which is,
as a matter of fact, the FULL TomTom navcore application compiled for windows and mac!
So, I modified the TTHome application to get the coordinates from a GPS! As simple as that!
All that is needed is the tomtom application and your original tomtom SD card containing maps and firmware (which is checked but not used).
The image above is a cropped screenshot of my PC with just my sdcard in my cardreader.
Obviously this works with any 'simulated' navcore version (dll). The only drawback is that as you may have noticed in TTHome,
the emulated device is a bit slow because it doesn't use your graphic card, but your CPU.
By the way, the output resolution is limited by your monitor and will...
As of now there is still much to do but it's a start.

Stay tuned for more to come!



  1. If you are *VERY* good with NPAPI and XULRUNNER *AND* browser plugin coding, please contact me.

    Execute the code below to contact me:

    echo email me|sed 's0e0?0;sama#a;smam@m;
    s!@!b!;sp p@p;su#umu;sc$c#.c;sqiq!q;

  2. Nice find Zibri, as always you amaze me with your articles. That is because you are the first to discover such a thing ;)


  3. As of now, the hack lets you put coordinates in a file which is read once a second by the emulator (for testing).
    In a few days I will code a routine to directly read the serial port qhere your GPS is and directly use that.

  4. hello teacher zibri,
    as always surprises me to see that is a phenomenon.
    thanks, thanks a thousand times thank you for your knowledge, and when you think that we may provide that any wonder that you've created?

  5. hola maestro:
    esta magnifica creacion suya, la puede compartir con nosotros?
    estoy impaciente por poder verlo con mis propios ojos, solo comentarle a usted, que es el rey del gps, a sus pies maestro
    hello teacher.
    this magnificent creation yours, you can share with us?
    I can not wait to see it with my own eyes, just tell you, he is the king of gps, teacher at his feet

  6. Hello

TP-LINK Configuration file encrypt and decrypt.

Here we go! TP-Link is another company that thinks that security by obscurity could ever work. If you "backup" the configuration from most TP-Link routers, you will get a .BIN file which is "encrypted". Use this utility below, to decrypt it (so you can edit it) and encrypt it again. Have fun.

Powerline Ethernet fun and secrets.

Many 200 Mb/s powerline adapters nowadays are based on the INTELLON 6300 chipset. Despite what can be thought looking at them, they are all using the same hardware and firmwares. I heard many people with Netgear XAV101 or Linksys PLK 200 or PLE 200 having problems after firmware updates and many other people with other brands having much more problems because of lack of support or configuration/upgrade utilities. So let me explain a few things I learnt studying them. Many of 200 Mb/s powerline ethernet adapters follow the "HomePlug AV" standard. (85 Mb adapters use HomePlug 1.0 standard which is completely different). This standard uses ethernet broadcast packets using the HomePlug AV protocol. The interesting thing is that their firmware is made of two different parts: a .PIB file (Parameter Information Block) and a .NVM file (the code itself). In the P.I.B. there are many interesting things: The branding (mac address, device name, etc) and the tone map. I test


Hello again! Many of you probably hate as I do CORS because it hinders the very nature of internet, which is SHARING. There are some services to circumvent this commercial  restriction, one of these is the famous "cors anywhere". So yesterday I decided to make my own and allow you to make your own in only 2 minutes. To do so you just need a cloudflare account (can be set up in 1 minute). The you can upload my worker on it and have your personal very fast cors proxy! So, enough talk, just head to: The is also a demo online at: Enjoy! Zibri
