My HTC Desire is S-OFF and Sky Go works fully with the stock kernel and ROM. Make sure you install Voodoo OTA BEFORE you install skygo_test.apk to get it working.



On a separate note I think we need to create an invite only thread where people can work on this hack, as Sky devs are probably viewing whats on here and writing their updates around blocking whats been created.

Can confirm this works for me too, at work until tonight, so had a look for/proc/config.gz with root explorer and it's not visible, but will pull and upload it tonight if no one else beats me to it.
Also noticed that if I temp unroot with a cf root kernel, then reboot then it stays unrooted, but with speedmod it re-roots itself after every reboot, don't know it that's relevant.

Thank you, where do I get just the stock lph kernel from ?

I'm presuming I run rootkeeper before the flash of the unrooted kernel otherwise how does the root stick ?

Is there a cwm flashable stock lph anywhere ? my mac doesn't play nicely with Odin.

thank you

Ahh - thanks for that - I was going to post to find out the answer to this.

I too had rooted my phone using CF-root and to get Sky Go working have flashed the Stock kernal for my Stock Rom (Gingerbread 2.3.4 on an unbranded CPW phone). I am not going to mess with my Rom until there is an Official ICS Rom, but enough of that.

Whilst I was warned that flashing the Stock kernal would mean recovery would be lost, I have flashed, got Sky Go working - woohoo! and would confirm that the ability to backup and/or recover using either CWM or Rom Manager is lost.

OK some questions: -

1. So all I need to do is flash my original CF-root file in Odin and I am back to where I started? In other words, if I mess up flashing then CWM will see my backup made just before flashing the Stock kernal?

2. Having tried to flash CWM whilst using the Stock kernal in CWM have I messed up? Before I try this can I be sure that after flashing CF-root again, will CWM automatically then be able to backup and Restore?

Finally - a big thanks to all the guys who have made the Sky Go app work - I watched the footy over the week end using it and it was marvellous

I just hope a better solution will be on it's way in the not too distant future

Not true. I have a fully rooted Sensation, and just use OTA Rootkeeper to temp unroot when I want to watch Sky Go.

Find it in intratech thread on xda. Just have root turned on before you flash, root itself is not in the kernel it is just something that the kernel injects to your rom.

Yes to use recovery you will need to flash cf-root back, it will be able to see all your backups fine then.
