I’m going to help you troubleshoot a particular issue that many AWS users face ‚Äď locked out of SSH into your EC2 instance. This might happen if you have made some changes in firewall (in Ubuntu its ufw) for example you enabled it and allowed some port only and if that ssh connection broke or something, you can‚Äôt get reconnect. Don’t worry; I’ve got your back! In just couple of minutes, I’ll show you some quick steps to get you back on track.

Before we dive in….. there are couple of points to remember

1.) This procedure requires a stop and start of the EC2 instance. If the instance has any data stored on instance store volumes, that data is deleted after stopping the instance.

2.) If the instance is part of an Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling group, then terminating the instance might also stop instances within the Auto Scaling group.

3.) If the instance is launched by services that use AWS Auto Scaling, then terminating the instance might also stop instances within the Auto Scaling group.

4.) Instance termination depends on the instance scale-in protection settings for the Auto Scaling group. If the instance is part of an Auto Scaling group, temporarily remove the instance from the Auto Scaling group before starting the resolution steps.

5.) Stopping and starting the instance changes the public IP address of the instance. It’s a best practice to use an Elastic IP address instead of a public IP address when routing external traffic to the instance.

Follow these steps to configure user-data for the instance:

1.) Open the Amazon EC2 console.

2. Choose Instances from the navigation pane, and then select the instance that you plan to connect to.

3. Stop the instance.

4. Choose Actions, Instance Settings, Edit User Data.

5. Copy the following user data script into the Edit User Data dialog box, and then choose Save.

6. Connect to the instance using SSH.

7. The preceding user data script is set to run on every reboot of the instance. After regaining access to the instance, remove the user data script.

There are several components related to AWS CLI.  The primary components we’ll use for this tutorial are AWS CLI, CLI Configuration, Bash Configuration, Terminal Application and AWS account.  Refer to below diagram to understand the overall architecture. 

1. AWS Configure Command

First way to authenticate to your AWS account using the AWS CLI is to use the configure command.  This command prompts you for 4 information

  • AWS Access Key
  • AWS Secret Key
  • Default Region
  • Default Output format

Note that this method requires use of AWS Access and Secret key.  To obtain this key set, log into your AWS console and download it for one of your IAM user.  It is highly recommended that you don’t use the root user for this type of access use case.  Instead create  IAM user and group.    

  1. Open Terminal application
  2. Type aws configure
  3. Enter AWS Access Key ID string
  4. Enter AWS Secrete Key String
  5. Enter default region code.  See AWS Regions and Endpoints for valid region codes.  
  6. Enter output format.  Valid values are json, text and table.  Note that this value only affects the format of the response on the Terminal application and does not affect any functionality.  

2. Named Profiles

A profile is a set of 4 values (AWS access key, secret key, default region and output format) identified by a profile name. AWS CLI uses 2 files named profiles and credentials to store these values on your computer.  The credentials file contains AWS access key and secret keys pairs per profile.  The profile file stores region and output pairs per profile.  These files are located in a hidden folder called .aws in your home directory. 

You can store multiple profiles in these files and use them in the AWS CLI by referring to the profile name.  By default, when you use the aws configure command, the information is stored as default profile


Adding a New AWS CLI Profile

Follow these steps to add a new profile called AdminProfile.  You can choose whatever name you want.  Note that the profile created through these steps will be stored in the AWS CLI’s credential and config files under .aws folder in your home directory.

  1. Open Terminal application
  2. Type¬†aws configure ‚Äď‚Äďprofile AdminProfile
  3. Enter AWS Access Key ID
  4. Enter AWS Secret Access Key
  5. Enter default region name
  6. Enter default output format
  7. At this point a new profile entry is created in your local AWS CLI credentials and config files. 

Using AWS CLI Profile with Command Option

Once you have a profile saved locally, you can reference the profile in any AWS CLI command by adding the¬†‚Äď‚Äďprofile¬†option.¬† As example, to issue command using a named profile called MyAdmin, add the option¬†‚Äď‚Äďprofile AdminProfile¬†to your command.¬† AWS CLI will issue the command using the stored profile and its permissions.

Example using stored profile named AdminProfile:

  • aws s3 ls¬†‚Äď‚Äďprofile AdminProfile
  • aws s3 mb s3://com.geekmentor.bucket.demo ‚Äď‚Äďprofile AdminProfile

3. Environment Variables

Environment variables are global values that are stored in your computer’s memory that can be used by various programs.  There are several environment variables that AWS CLI natively understands.  AWS CLI will use the values in the environment variables and overrides all other configured values such as named profile setting.  Only exception is the command line parameter where you type in the option parameter directly along with the command.  You can see complete list of environment variables that AWS CLI supports.

Follow these steps to set an environment variables.  This example sets the variable AWS_DEFAULT_OUTPUT to a value table.  

  1. Open Terminal application
  2. Type export AWS_DEFAULT_OUTPUT=table
  3. This should set an environment variable named AWS_DEFAULT_OUTPUT to a value ‚Äútable‚ÄĚ.¬†
  4. In order to verify, type echo $AWS_DEFAULT_OUTPUT
  5. This should respond with value ‚Äútable‚ÄĚ
  6. If you want to see all environment variables on your computer, type printenv.  

Now whenever you issue an AWS CLI command, the result will be in table format regardless of the output format set in your profile.¬† To override the environment variable value, add the corresponding option directly in the command.¬† For example, to override the AWS_DEFAULT_OUTPUT environment value, use¬†‚Äď‚Äďoutput¬†option in the command (i.e.¬†aws iam get-user¬†‚Äď‚Äďoutput json¬†which will respond in json format for this command only).¬† ¬†

Setting AWS CLI Environment Variables in the .bash_profile

You can use the .bash_profile file to set commonly used environment variables so they are automatically available every time you open the terminal application.  The .bash_profile file is simply a text file that the terminal application executes when it starts.  

If you don’t use .bash_profile and just set the environment variable using the export command in the terminal application, the environment variables are only set for the current session.  This means that when you restart the computer or quit the terminal application, the set values will be gone.  

Follow these steps to set environment variables in the .bash_profile file.  In this example, we’ll set the AWS_ACCEESS_KEY_ID and AWS_SECRET_KEY environment variable values.  

  1. Find .bash_profile file on your computer.  This file is located in your user’s home directory.  Note that this file is hidden file type and may not display by default on your computer.
    • If you are using Terminal application, type¬†cd $HOME¬†to go to your home directory.¬† Then type¬†ls -a¬†to list all items including hidden files.¬†
    • If you are using Finder, navigate to your user home directory and press¬†shift command .¬†(period) keys at same time to toggle to display hidden items.¬†
  2. You should see .bash_profile file.  If you don’t see this file, you can create one.  
  3. (optional) Create a new .bash_profile file (only if you don’t already have one)
    • Open Terminal application and navigate to. home directory by typing¬†cd $HOME
    • Type¬†nano .bash_profile¬† This command opens a text editor
    • Press¬†control x¬†keys to exit and type¬†Y¬†to save the file.¬† This action creates a blank .bash_profile file.¬†
  4. Open .bash_profile file from Finder.  This opens up a TextEdit program.  
    • export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=YourAccessKeyIDhere
    • export AWS_SECRET_KEY=YourSecretKeyhere
  1. Save the .bash_profile file.
  2. Quit the terminal application and reopen it.  The new Terminal application will be initialized with 2 environment variables. 
  3. To see all of the environment variables currently set, type printenv
  4. Now when you issue AWS command, the AWS CLI will automatically use the AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID and AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY value in the environment variable overriding any profiles configured in the AWS profiles and credentials file. 
  5. You can see current IAM user that CLI is using by typing aws iam get-user which should return user profile current credential.  Note that this command requires minimally IAMReadOnlyAccess permission to execute.   

4. Configuration Precedence

It’s important to understand the precedence of the configuration that AWS CLI uses when using combination of techniques namely command line options, environment variables and named profiles.  

  1. AWS CLI will always use the¬†command line options¬†you type directly into the command using double dashes.¬† As example, to output response as JSON format, you can append¬†‚Äď‚Äďoutput json¬†to your command.¬† This method will override any other configuration such as named profile and environment variables.¬†
    • Example:¬†aws iam get-user¬†‚Äď‚Äďoutput json
  2. In absence of command line option, AWS CLI will use the environment variables.  The environment variables set either via export command in the Terminal application directly in the session or via .bash_profile file will override any other configuration such as named profile.  
    • Example:¬†export AWS_DEFAULT_OUTPUT=table
  3. In absence of command line option and environment variables, AWS CLI will use the values set in the named profiles in the credentials file
  4. In absence of values in the command line option, environment variables and credentials file, then AWS will use the values in the config file.  

You can see full list of precedence of the AWS CLI configurations for other use cases. 


There are several ways to configure AWS CLI to work with your AWS account.  First method is using the aws configure command which saved as the default profile.  Second method is setting one or more named profile in the AWS CLI config and credentials file.  This is convenient way to store multiple profiles on your local computer.  Third option is using the predefined environment variables that AWS CLI understands.  Environment variables can be configured in the .bash_profile file to be set automatically whenever Terminal application starts. 

When using one or more configuration methods, it’s important to understand the precedence.  Namely, the options directly passed into the command line takes highest precedence.  Then environment variables followed by named profiles.  

You move apps out of your organisation’s catalog of apps by transferring an app to another organisation. You want to transfer an app when you’ve sold the app to another developer or you want to move it to another iTunes Connect organisation.
You can transfer the ownership of an app to another developer without removing the app from the store. The app retains its reviews and ratings during and after the transfer, and users continue to have access to future updates. There’s no limit to the number of apps you can transfer, but each app needs to be transferred individually.
In this video I will walk through the entire process to transfer the app from one account into another.

There are still chaos in the process of getting Reliance Jio 4G Sim, most of the stores in big cities at least trying to keep the stocks of JioFi 4G Hotspots available for the customers to buy. Reliance quietly launched the JioFi 4G wireless Hotspot with OLED Display and an improved 2600mAh battery. This device can be purchased by paying INR 1,999. At the time of the launch this device was available at the price of Rs 2,899 but slashed to Rs. 1,999 later.

The Jio Welcome Offer is still available for all the JioFi 4G wireless hotpots till 31 Dec 2016. As of now, Reliance Jio has not made clear about what the plans will be post 31 December 2016, although it is expected to be similar, if not better, than what’s being offered to other Jio SIM card holders.
Read: Reliance Jio 4G SIM activation delay explained
The first variant was priced at Rs. 2,899 with no OLED display and a 2300mAh battery. The main difference between the old variant and new one is you can connect only 10 devices on the new JioFi as opposed to 30. Reliance Jio JioFi is portable so you can literally take your network wherever you go. The device can be used for up to 5 hours on a single charge and up to 260 hours of standby time. Similar to the other JioFi devices, it gets a microSD card and a micro-SIM card slot.
One of the best feature of the Reliance JioFi 4G Wireless hotspot is to allow you to use 4G LTE on any of your phone that doesn’t support 4G through the Jio4GVoice (formerly JioJoin) app. The app allows you to place calls and send messages through the JioFi.


Tim Cook just unveiled its new installation of iPhone device. Apple kept a great deal of interest even from those who have never bought any of its flagship device. Tim Cook introduced new iPhone in its famous style and the crowd gone crazy. It was interesting to see that most of the rumors about the new iPhone 7 before its launch were actually true. Despite that, these new iPhones will gonna be in your wish list with the kind of features that this new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is having.

1. Gorgeous New Design

Apple has done a tremendous job in¬†crafting the new iPhone 7. It is looking stunning with the new design revamp. The new iPhone 7¬†is constructed with incredibly strong 7000 Series aluminum. You can’t take your eyes off the stunning looking iPhone.¬†The enclosure is splash and water resistant and¬†the Home button is completely reengineered.¬†The¬†jet¬†black finish in the iPhone 7 is like nothing we have ever seen. Its available in Black with a¬†matte finish, High gloss jet black,¬†silver, gold, and rose gold finishes.
As rumored, the home button here is similar to the Force Touch trackpad on the Mac. It’s force-sensitive and unmoving. It, too, has a vibrating “Taptic” engine to give you feedback meant to simulate an actual button press.

2. Water and Dust Resistant

With the new enclosure reengineered the new iPhone 7 is water and dust resistant. Like other waterproof phones in its class, it meets IP67 waterproofing standards. There is no more fear of spills, splashes and even dust.

3. Camera

Apple has designed the new camera system for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus each. With its 12 megapixel sensors, optical image stabilization, f/1.8 aperture, six element lens, high speed sensor, Quad-LED true tone flash and wide color gamut make iPhone 7’s camera best in any smartphone ever.
The iPhone 7 Plus camera on the other hand has 2 cameras that shoot as one. The same 12MP wide-angle camera that’s on iPhone 7 works with a 12MP telephoto camera that can achieve high-quality zoom from farther away. And the new depth-of-field effect (coming soon as a software update) makes it even better. 
Up front, there’s a 7MP FaceTime HD camera for selfies. (Up from 5MP.)

4. Retina HD Display

The new wide color gamut, 3D touch and 25% brighter screen make it to deliver cinema-standard colors. Apple is claiming the wide color gamut to be the best color management in the smartphone industry.

5. Stereo Speakers, EarPods

Apple iPhone 7 sports new stereo speakers boasting twice the volume of iPhone 6s model, along with a wider range. EarPods that have a Lightning connector will be shipped in the iPhone 7 box. But if you still want to listen through your old headphones, you can plug them in using a 3.5 mm headphone jack adapter, which will also be included in the box.

6. Fast Processor

The new iPhone 7 is powered by the new chip designed by Apple called A10 Fusion chip. It is more efficient and its¬†faster than the previous generations of the chips. iPhone 7 is said to have longest battery life ever in any iPhone. ¬†A10 Fusion chip‚Äôs CPU has two high‚ÄĎperformance cores and two high‚ÄĎefficiency cores, the¬†high‚ÄĎperformance cores run at up to twice the speed of iPhone 6 and¬†high‚ÄĎefficiency cores consumes the one-fifth the power of the¬†high‚ÄĎperformance cores.

7. Faster LTE and Crystal Clear VoLTE calls

Apple iPhone 7 features advanced LTE that can speed up to 450 mbps data downloads. It is 3 times faster than that of iPhone 6 and LTE supports up to 25 bands which will be helpful in worldwide roaming.
Since iPhone 7 supports VoLTE which is high-quality calls, conversation over phone will sound way much better. One of the good feature of iPhone  is that it can answer calls from Whatsapp, Facebook etc like regular calls including call waiting.

The day is here for which every fanboy of Apple waits eagerly. If you are a die hard fan of Apple, you must already know that Apple is going to launch its historic device today which is expected to be called iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus . There are a lot of speculations about the launch of new version of Apple Watch but it’s not clear if Apple will call this Apple Watch 2.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has released a detailed research report on the upcoming iPhones.Ming-Chi Kuo is known for his track record when it comes to Apple device rumors. 

Kuo’s report predicts the likely features that iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will¬†have. Lets take a look what this¬†tech rumor mill is churning for months.

1. New Processor


There has been a lot of buzz around the next installment of the iPhone 7 processor. One rumor suggest that the upcoming CPU will be the fastest chip to have ever featured in an iPhone. The company designation for the chip is A10 and it could be clocked at 2.37 GHz. Similarly, the iPhone 7 will be the first Apple phone to feature 3GB of LPDDR 4 RAM. Currently, the iPhone 6 series features 3GB of onboard RAM.

2. More Storage, Upgraded Memory


As per the KGI report, Apple will also be giving both RAM and storage boost to the new installation of the iPhone devices.

The company is expected to drop 16GB and 64GB models and add a 256GB variant.

This means Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models will come in 32GB, 128 GB and 256GB variants. Both the iPhones are also likely to get a RAM boost of 1GB.

3. More Color options


Apple is also adding new color options. The company is likely to add ‘Dark Black’ and ‘Glossy Piano Black’ variants to the iPhone range.

These may replace the existing ‘space grey’ colored variant.

4. Dual Lens Camera


It is expected that iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will sport a dual camera setup, comprising both wide-angle and telephoto camera. Each camera will have 12 megapixel sensor.

Other rumors say that the smaller and simpler iPhone 7 will still feature the single lens camera, but its larger sibling, the iPhone 7Plus will likely feature a dual lens back camera. The camera module in both versions remains the same and features the same lens.

5. Water Proofing


As per the reports, both the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus will be water-proof with IPX7 rating.

Same as that of Apple Watch, this means that the device can withstand immersion in water up to 1 meter (for some 30 minutes).

6. Screen Upgrade


Apple is likely to give the displays a boost as the smartphones are rumored to have the same wider color gamut as there is in the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. However, there will be no change in the screen size of both the upcoming iPhones.

Some reports also claim that Apple may use iPad Pro’s True Tone technology.

7. No Headphone Jack


One of the most widely-rumored feature of the upcoming iPhones has been the dropping of 3.5mm headphone jack.

KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo too agrees with this most-written about leaked feature. According to him, Apple will be bundling Lightning EarPods and a Lightning to 3.5mm headphone Jack adapter with both the new iPhones to compensate for the omission.

The same was also confirmed by an alleged packaging of iPhone 7 Plus that surfaced online recently.

Other Rumors worth to look at

In the heat of rumors, we’ve come up with some of the features that are almost confirmed. Here is a list followed by more details of those supposedly confirmed features:

Lack Of Home Button:

Another rumor has it that the upcoming iPhone 7 will not feature a physical home button. Instead, the phone will simply use a pressure pad that takes into account the applied pressure from your thumb or finger. Apple have recently done the same to their laptop range and the possibility of happening it with the iPhone 7 is quite high.

Larger Battery

The iPhones are known to have reasonably smaller batteries but their efficiency and power management has never been questioned. The previous version, the iPhone 6 had a 1715 mAh battery but still clocked decent hours for the day. The iPhone 7 is about to change that with its batteries. Though the iPhone 7 basic edition will feature a marginal improvement over its predecessor, it is the iPhone 7 Plus that will steal the show with its monstrous 2810 mAh battery. If this is true, this will give the plus version enough horse power to last for a day and a half under full work load and a full charge.

Fast Charge

Though this technology has been around for quite a while in other brands, the iPhone 7 is about to get its version of fast charge. Through this technology, you can charge your phone much faster compared to normal chargers. The unique feature of Apple’s version of fast charge is that it will boast a five volt two amp charging, which is almost double the current to what the iPhone 6 used to get from its charger.

There is a lot of confusion about VoLTE amongst general public who are not very tech savvy. Lets begin to understand what these technical terms in a simple manner. First of All, The Reliance Jio 4G service is exactly what it says, a 4G service. There is no 2G or 3G signals so phones that are not 4G compatible will not work on this network.
2G, 3G, 4G LTE and VoLTE:
4G LTE is a packet switched technology whereas 2G and 3G are circuit switched. On 2G and 3G networks wireless providers like Airtel, Vodafone etc transmit voice calls over the traditional circuit-switched networks. While in 4G LTE technology when a user makes a voice call the mobile latches to a 3G or 2G network that is available to make the call. But subscribers use the newer IP-based 4G LTE network to access the Internet and other “data” services.
The VoLTE, service enables wireless operators to use the data network to transmit voice services in the same way they transmit data. In short, This means even voice is transmitted as data.
Currently Reliance only owns 4G LTE spectrum, So if you are in a area where there is no 4G coverage your phone will not be able to make call.¬†You can still use 4G phones that support Jio’s LTE band, but you will not be able to make calls unless your phone supports VoLTE.
This guide will show you a complete list of the supported phones that will work on Reliance Jio Network.

In my last post I explained the delay in activation process of Reliance Jio 4G SIM. I purchased this SIM along with LYF Flame phone on 22 August 2016 from Reliance Digital, Sector 29, Gurgaon. They said that SIM should get activated in couple of days. This SIM is yet to be¬†activated. Its been 14 days till date. I tried everything from calling its customer care number 1800-889-9999 to visiting the store personally. They gave every kind of excuses and my SIM wasn’t activated.
Read: Reliance Jio 4G SIM activation delay explained
Today, I was going somewhere when I spotted a Reliance Digital¬†Express Mini Store (Vasant Kunj, New Delhi) I was surprised to see that it wasn’t much crowded so I decided to visit to ask about tomorrow’s launch and e-KYC process. The store manager was there and they were preparing for tomorrow’s launch. I spoke to him about my problem and he said that there was a pile of forms which these guys are uploading daily for the new activations and since it is a manual process¬†due to which¬†activations¬†are getting delayed.

He asked me “Do you have your Aadhar card with you right now? I will activate your Reliance Jio 4G¬†SIM right away”. Fortunately, I was carrying the Aadhar Card with me. I handed over my card and he ask one of his employee to issue me a newReliance Jio 4G¬†SIM and activate it. A couple of minute later that person¬†gave me a new Reliance Jio 4G SIM¬†and he¬†scanned my finger to authenticate my Aadhar Card (part of e-KYC) through some app on his device. And after that he returned my Aadhar Card and gave me the Reliance Jio 4G SIM and told me to wait for 10 minutes. I thanked him and manager and came back. By the time I reached my home, my Reliance Jio 4G SIM was activated.
I also asked the manager about my previous SIM that is pending for activation. He told me “That SIM will also get activated soon. You may use that Reliance Jio 4G¬†SIM or¬†give it your family member.” He also suggested that since most of the new connections will get activated using e-KYC so the backlog is expected to get clear soon.
So, I spoke to him for almost 20 minutes and I asked some questions about the SIMs that are pending for activation and the new e-KYC system. Below are some of the questions that I asked.
Question: “Is it possible to activate the Reliance Jio 4G¬†SIMs that are pending for activation through¬†e-KYC process?”
Answer: “We don’t know yet, right now the e-KYC process is working for the new connections. However there might be some information available after September 5¬†regarding the activation of¬† the Reliance Jio 4G SIMs bought prior to 5th September”
Question: “I am living in Delhi and If the Aadhar card is not issued in Delhi, is it possible for me¬†to get¬†the new Reliance Jio 4G SIM?”
Answer: “You will get the new Reliance Jio 4G SIM but it will NOT¬†get activated through e-KYC process because this service is launched in New Delhi and Mumbai as of now. If you are not in Delhi or Mumbai then you will have to follow the same process like filling the CAF form and giving us a passport size photo. Also, we will need the code generated by MyJio App, so phones that are not 4G compatible will not work on this network. But in a few weeks, company will take this service across other cities in India. “
Question: “What are the documents that you need to activate a new Reliance Jio 4G SIM through e-KYC process?”
Answer: “Only Aadhar Card issued in Delhi and the person whose Aadhar card is being used has to be presented to authenticate it using fingerprints”
So, That’s it. The process is looking very promising and expect a large number of customers for getting the new reliance Jio 4G SIM in the Mumbai, New Delhi and NCR region especially. Please tell us in comments how was your overall experience about getting your hands on Reliance Jio SIM and its services?
Watch this video which I shot after I got this trick to activate my SIM.Those who are suffering from Reliance Jio Activation Delay and living in Delhi NCR and Mumbai can activate their SIM using this trick. I have tested this method and it worked every time.
