[code]From r5 root methord - thanks to paul @ Modaco

Entering recovery in future

Included with the root script is a script for entering recovery in the future. To use...

* Turn on the device with the volume button held down
* Navigate to the 'RECOVERY' option on the menu, using the volume buttons to move and the power button to select.
* In your terminal window, enter either 'recovery-windows.bat', './recovery-mac.sh' or './recovery-linux.sh' as appropriate.
* It is recommended that you do NOT use the 'USB mount' functionality in the recovery image!

Obviously were are using ./recovery-linux.sh in this guide

2), Then issue command # sudo ./adb-linux push bootanimation.zip /data/local

Making sure bootanimations.zip is in the root of the adb folder on your pc.

3), Now highlight the reboot phone option and select it, Reboot and enjoy!!


Failing that you can ..

1. Download "Root Explorer" from the android market.
2. Copy the bootanimation.zip to the root of your sdcard,
3. Using root explorer copy the bootanimation.zip to /data/local reboot and enjoy!

EDIT: Added extra frame to stop the "s" Hanging in the htc desire anime.

[How-To] Install Jbed on the HTC DESIRE

Felikz over at XDA has put together a very short guide on how to install Jbed java on your htc desire, So you can play any Java file :)


1. Download this.

2. Start a shell (i prefer adb shell), and type the following (each line confirmed with the return key)

adb remount
adb install Jbed.apk or adb push Jbed.apk /system/app
adb push libjbedvm.so /system/lib
adb shell reboot

Reboot and Enjoy!!

Windows 7 Activation - Remove W.A.T 2.2.5

If you are a Windows 7 user you may of noticed a new update found on the Windows Update Service. The update (KB971033) has been released to try and combat the Windows 7 users who are running a pirated copy.
Once the KB971033 update has been installed it will give you random pop-up messages telling you that your version of Windows 7 is not genuine and other random things.
Just hours after release a fix called RemoveWAT 2.2.5 was released to combat the Microsoft Update. RemoveWAT works quite different to other Windows 7 Loaders and Activators. It works by simply removing all files relating to Windows Activation Technologies while still allowing Windows 7 to run Windows Update and appear to be Genuine.

SERVER 2008!!!!
- renames slmgr on x64 as well
- Works on unicode systems
- silent mode with /s switch
- UI tweaked slightly
- No reboot necessary
- Passes WGA on X64

There will be no windows activation section in control panel
no slmgr, no nags,  no prompts,  nothing. WAT gone. .

In theory this should have a 100% success rate on all machines.

         Version 2.2.5
Fully protects from WAT Update (KB971033)
Disables trial time bomb in evaluation ISOs fully

Installion and Use:
1. UnRAR
2. Run as Adminstrator
3. Click on Remove WAT button

To Return Windows 7 to Original State:
1. UnRAR
2. Run as Adminstrator
3. Click on Restore WAT button

Download HERE!!..........  

EDIT: Remember if your doing a fresh install, uncheck activate online and DO NOT put in a key.
